WATER:  The cistern of the Ateneo School of Medicine & Public Health (ASMPH)
recommended for cleaning last week has been cleaned.  Water samples will be
taken for evaluation by the Microbiology Unit of the Biology Department.
Results will be released next week.    


TRAFFIC:  Katipunan traffic has slowed down since the start of the C-5
widening work in Balara and at the C.P. Garcia-Velasquez entrance.  Widening
of C-5 will take some time to complete but work on the U.P. C.P.
Garcia-Velasquez entrance will most likely be completed before the end of
the month.


Obstruction:  Several vehicles from the flyover have been reported going
against the flow of traffic early in the morning near Gate 2.  These
northbound vehicles would go past the concrete barrier then back-up against
the flow of traffic to enter Gate 2 instead of Gate 3.  There are many
things wrong about this:


*	It is risky.
*	It obstructs the flow of traffic.
*	It sets a bad example to the Grade School students.


The vehicles indicated by the arrow above came from the flyover that backed
up past the concrete barriers and entered Gate 2 instead of Gate 3.  All
were carrying Grade School students before 6:00 a.m.  


Campus security has identified the owners of the vehicles involved and
submitted the names to the Grade School administration so the parents of the
students in the vehicle can be informed of this illegal and dangerous


Early Dismissal:  Traffic will be heavy towards noon on Thursday, 20
November due to the simultaneous early dismissal of the Grade School and
