Van Dongen said he was planning to have a couple of men from yesterday's day shift work on into the evening hours, while others would come in early for the night shift, which usually starts at 11 p.m. this time of year.
Anything else that the campus needs to know about snow removal this frigid week? "Just thank everybody for their patience," Van Dongen said.
Meanwhile, work was finishing last night on fixing a water main break along the ring road north of the Davis Centre. Repairing the leak was pretty simple once the pipe was uncovered, says Rick Zalagenas, manager of the central plant -- it just called for a clamp on the four-inch pipe in question. Digging down to get there was the hard part, he said, "and the cold part!"
Launched in 1988, the chair is dedicated to the study and promotion of the Croatian language, literature and culture. The chairholder is Vinko Grubisic, an internationally known scholar, writer and teacher. He has authored 14 books and 40 articles on Croatian language, linguistics, culture and pedagogy.
While on campus, Fuchs also held discussions with UW faculty and officials to strengthen an international exchange agreement between the university and the University of Zagreb. "It is highly encouraging to receive this generous donation to the Croatian chair at the University of Waterloo from the government of the Republic of Croatia," said David John, chair of the department of Germanic and Slavic languages and literatures. "Dr. Fuchs's visit to reinforce the gift is a sign of his personal commitment and that of his government. We are confident that the second decade of the Croatian chair at Waterloo will be even more successful than the first."
Others participating at the meeting were Brian Hendley, UW's dean of arts; Jim Kalbfleisch, vice-president (academic) and provost; Ian Lithgow, vice-president (university relations); and Jim Walker, co-ordinator for international programs, faculty of arts. Also attending were Anton Kikas, a representative of the National Foundation for Croatian Studies; Luka Budak, who holds the Croatian Chair at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia; and a representative of the Croatian news media, who interviewed both Grubisic and Hendley for Croatian radio. At the meeting, participants discussed future student and faculty exchanges between UW and the University of Zagreb, as well as possible joint research projects.
Currently, UW students can combine a major in one subject with a minor in Croatian studies. Courses are offered in introductory, intermediate and advanced Croatian, as well as in Croatian culture and literature.

From 5-6 p.m. will be technical group information (mechanical, electrical, array, strategy, aerobody) and from 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. will be non-technical information (Business Group). This is open to all students from all faculties. We are well on our way towards Sunrayce and need lots of enthusiastic team members."
Return-to-campus interviews start today for all co-op students returning from fall work terms. Students should check for their assigned interview time with their coordinator, or on the bulletin boards in Needles Hall. Later this week: "a resumé blitz, designed primarily for junior students", Friday and Monday in the co-op department. "To have their resumé checked over by CECS staff, students may sign up at the paging desk, main floor, NH."
To help with the beginning-of-term rush, the key control office in the General Services Complex will be open over the noon hour this week and next, as well as the regular hours of 8:30 to 12 and 1:00 to 4:30.
