South Quad adds
hal patrols, guards
Arson hits 'U' buildings
By JUDY RUSKIN
Reacting to recent attacks on
women within their dormitory,
residents of South Quad have in-
stituted a new security procedure
on all womens' halls.
Dorm residents, acting as
guards, are posting themselves at
all elevator doors and partolling
the corridors. They are on duty
from 11:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m.
The South Quad Security Com-
mittee, organized by Sherrie Katz,
met early last week with housing
officials to discuss different means
of providing dorm security.
"The decision was made to have
residents act as guards rather than
use real policemen," Katz said.
A woman from each house will
be stationed by the elevator doors
on all the odd floors, where the
elevator stops. In addition, two
men will be assigned to patrol the
Each guard will prevent "sus-
picious looking people" - people
who are not recognized - from
wandering the halls.
Each woman is equipped with a
whistle, her means of getting in
touch with the male "cruisers."
"The women are there to chal-
lenge, not to capture," said Ann
Sternberger, another resident on
the security committee.
"When the whistle blows, it's a
community effort," she added.
"Anyone who is up should come
out and help."
Members of the committee say
they have no idea who is respon-
sible for the thefts and assaults
which have occurred since Septem-
ber. The new system is looked on
as a preventive, and according to
Katz, the committee doesn't think
it will catch anyone.
"It was mainly a staff reaction,"
she added. "Girls were ready to
move out, and I couldn't blame
them. They had every right to
break their contracts."
"The problem has created a
sense of community among peo-
ple," she added, "even between
the different houses within the

According to Leon West, the
building director at West Quad,
the fires yesterday "could not have
been the work of a single indi -
"The fires were all of the small
wastebasket type. One person
alone could not have set them be-
cause they were all set simultan-
eously. They were synchronized."
Police, last night refused to dis-

In an interview yesterday, City
Police Chief Walter Krasny appeal-
ed for aid from students in identi-

blazes. He said he ,did not believe
the fires to be the work of a

nothing to do with their political
beliefs, it's to do with them being
City police are being assisted in
their investigation of the fires by
state police arson experts and
University security officers. Aside
from the descriptions given them
last night, it is not thought that
investigators have any real leads
to who is responsible for the blazes

that "we are watching some

Now that you can fly to Europe for peanuts,
here's how little you shell out to get around:
$130 for Two Months of unlimited rail travel in ,
Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Luxembourg,
Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland.
You shell out $130, and get a Student-Railpass.
All you need is the bread and something to show you're
a bona fide student between 14 and 25.
Our Student-Railpass gives you all that unlimited
rail travel on the 100,000 mile railroad networks of those
13 countries. For two foot-loose months. So with low air
fares and Student-Railpass you've got Europe made.
Our Student-Railpass gets you Second Class
travel on our trains. You'll find that there's very little
second class about Second Class. Besides being com-
fortable, clean, fast, and absurdly punctual, the Euro-
pean trains have some other advantages for you. They
take you from city center to city center, so you don't have
to hassle airports. And the stations are helpful homes
away from home, with Pictograms that give you informa-
tion in the universal language of signs, and dining rooms,
bookstores and other helpful facilities.
Now, here's the catch. You can't get your
Student-Railpass or the regular First Class Eurailpass in
Europe-you have to get them before you leave the coun-
try. So see your Travel Agent soon. Meanwhile, send in
the coupon for a free folder, complete with railroad map.
