MITSFS meeting called to order, 1700 SST, Jade Wang, President and Skinner, presiding. Ed Keyes is the Onseck.

Minutes read.

Motion: Commend this Onseck for being faster than the previous two combined. ``We fear speed.'' Passes 6-0-5+Spehn.

``That's not a xylophone, that's my wife!''


Committee Reports

Jourcomm: Posters exist, yay. Moties recycled with the same number of fingers.

Theftcomm: New book list updated, including Telzey and Trigger.

Pseudo-Panthercomm: Shelf regenerated again. Darn overflow. Hopefully the last box.

``Give me committee reports!''

Motion: Condemn Jadecomm for not remembering crucial report. Passes 13-0-1+Spehn.

Jadecomm: Finally she processed two-year-old stuff on the Skinner shelf.

``There's even comic stuff there!''

Pseudo-Pianocomm: Prentices are hosed. One box left for Foley. ``Foley is cool!''


Old Business

Motion: Condemn Skinner for being greedy. ``That was commend, wasn't it?'' Passes 12-1-2+Spehn.

Motion: Commend Stephanie for distracting Skinner. Passes infinity-0-0+Spehn.

Only one circulating banana.

Jamie proceeds to list ALL the banana-related things in the Library.

Motion: Condemn Chancellor for this. Fails by Skinnerial decree.

Letter for Paula Jacobson signed, yay.


New Business

``Shelves! Shelves! Shelves! Yay, shelves!''

They still need some cleaning.

Now we have holders for the long pieces of metal which can hold books!

Motion: Commend the Skinner for having a new hole in her neck. Fails ``cause it fails''.

Motion: Condemn Skinner for being demanding. Passes 7-1-0+Spehn. (Something involved the Telzey here but the Onseck is confused.)

Motion: Get Skinner a banana because she's hungry. Motion kind of hangs there at 9-9-3+Spehn.

Okay for us to use the AirPort in SIPB.

``If you'd turned your head faster, you could have killed John.''

Motion: Commend Skinner for strength of containment devices. Passes 12-0-3+Spehn.

Skinner is still hungry and louder.


Future Business

ET dinner mob maybe next week.

Time warp to Old Business. A member from the 70's came in, but didn't notice we were in a new room because it's as crowded as before. Didn't notice the gavel and block either... when did they come? Used to have a wooden gavel and block.

Motion: Make a motion concerning a banana. Passes lots-1-3+Spehn.

Meeting adjourned, 1735 SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Ed Keyes, Onseck
