Purposeful posting wall

Walking through cam-
pus, students are bound
to run into multiple con-'
crete cylinders covered
with bright-colored fli-
ers for everything from
concerts to fundraisers.
These structures, known
as kiosks, provide student
organizations with a per-
fect space to disseminate
information - but do they
serve another purpose?
The kiosks function
as more than just a post-
ing wall. According to
University Planner Sue
Gott, the kiosks provide
ventilation for a system
of underground tunnels
that connect Central
Campus to the Medical
School. The tunnels con-
tain pipes that carry hot

water and steam to all
campus buildings.
Gott said that while
vents located closer to
the ground could have
been used to ventilate the
tunnels, they would have
blown away passersby
by directing air onto
walkways. The kiosks
eliminate this problem by
aiming air above people
on the sidewalks.
"(The kiosks provide)
a return for air, directing
air above where people
are walking," Gott said.
But Gott added that the
space the kiosks provide
for posting flyers is one
of their greatest assets.
With their large sur-
face areas and locations
near heavily trafficked

walkways, the kiosks
serve the dual purpose
of providing people with
a place for hanging fly-
ers and preventing them
from hanging informa-
tion on telephone and
light poles.
"They are kiosks that
function for people to
pin information on," Gott
said. "(They offer a) way
to keep people from post-
ing on light poles."
Kiosks are available
to all students for post-
ing, and no permission is
required for hanging fly-
ers. Maintenance of the
kiosks is fairly simple,
involving the removal
of all flyers at the end of
each semester.

Susan Tsvangirai, who died in
a car crash Friday. Her husband
and children were also in the
church, where her body rested
in bronze coffin, as a crowd
massed outside.
"We are sincerely saddened by
the death of Susan and we hope.
that Morgan will remain strong,"
Mugabe said.
The president, who visited
the injured Tsvangirai in the
hospital the day of the wreck,
said their fledgling coali-
tion government has only just
begun efforts to bring rebuild
a country beset by political and
economic crisis.
"We shall do our best, our
possible best to ensure that the
environment that we create
in the country is a conducive
environment," Mugabe said in
calling for an end to violence.
Zimbabwe's long history of
political violence blamed on
Mugabe's supporters fueled
speculation that Friday's crash,
in which the prime minister
was slightly injured, was not
an accident. Tsvangirai sought
to quell those rumors Monday,
saying there was "no foul play"
in the crash.
Speaking to questions swirl-
ing about the car accident
and Susan Tsvangirai's death,
Mugabe said: "I plead with
you to accept it, it's the hand
of God," according to British
Broadcasting Corp.
Tsvangirai and, his children
and Mugabe all stood in turn
next to Susan Tsvangirai's open
casket, heads bowed.
