WATER: Mr. Eugine U. Bulatao, a University Physical Plant personnel residing at the Ateneo housing noticed unusually large amount of water flowing at the housing road coming from the Grade School last Wednesday evening, 30 January. Investigating the Grade School complex the following day, the plumbing section noted that water continued to flow even after gate valves were closed.

Due to the configuration of the Grade School, a looping water distribution system has been installed over the years to insure strong water pressure at any point in the area. Unfortunately, the old G.I. pipes used in the system have been covered by various construction projects. Locating the leak in the system involved breaking through concrete. This could not be easily done as the Grade School complex is used even on weekends.

The long weekend with Monday as a holiday, allowed University Physical Plant personnel to trace the leak in the system. Gate valves were shut at different points and time. The leak has been found and fixed.

PARKING: A van with a Loyola Schools student sticker was found by SG EDGAR O VALDINAR illegally parked along the diversion road (road parallel to Katipunan from Gate 2.5 to Gate 3) obstructing the flow of traffic. The NO Parking sign where the van was parked had been removed. It was found inside the van.

SECURITY: Housekeeping personnel MR. MATEO E. INANO found what seem to be a porcelain marijuana tooter at the Smokers’ Pocket Garden between Cervini and Eliazo Residence Halls last Thursday 31 January.

Found and returned: At 3:20 p.m., Friday 1 February JGSOM Student Enterprise Center (JSEC) roving guard SG ANTONINO A PARNADA (not in the picture) found an unattended red bag near the SEC C storage room. The bag contained:

Ninety-eight P500 peso bills or a total of P49,000.
Two Nokia camera phones and car keys.
One Canon telephoto lens and flash.
Wallet with P600 cash, ATM & credit cards.

The bag and its contents were claimed by an LS coed at 4:40 p.m. of the same day at the security office.

Unlocked cars: Carnapping and car break-ins are serious problems in Metro Manila, particularly in Quezon City . Yet the number of cars found unlocked in the Loyola Heights campus is increasing. Since the start of classes in January till last Friday, 1 February the number of unlocked cars found by roving guards are shown below:

Believe it or not:



At 9:15 a.m., last Thursday, 31 January SG DARIUS D ASUNCION found a CRV parked with the motor running, air conditioner and stereo turned on, with all doors unlocked at the North carpark. The owner had left the car and gone to work at the nearby building. SG Asuncion points to the ignition key left inside the CRV. All the carnapper had to do was drive away with the CRV. After taking pictures, security turned everything off. Security removed the key after locking the car. The owner claimed the keys at the security office 30 minutes later. She had gone to work and completely forgot about her CRV.
