Committee Reports


The Tech reports ``ASA allocation plan not yet final'', and ED/ARM are misquoted.


Order forms have been submitted to the LHE's pile, to be sent upstairs for checks and then mailed to magazine people.


English books got picked up before the UA office manager managed to yell at us about them.


We have an LSC slide for RotK this weekend. It does not have Bananas of Gor


Old Business

Some of the boxes of donations have been unboxed.
``Scream and then invite all the enemy spies to the War Council is not in the Dzur approved procedure manual''

Many many (180) Star Trek books arrived as well, including Shatner's daughter's account of Shatner's experience in the making of Star Trek V.

Motion to have Alan Dean Foster ghostwrite reality
Chickens 2-1-4+Spehn

Lack of Usuals


New Business

In those old donations, we have new Klingon audio tapes, teaching Power and Conversational Klingon.
``Power Klingon will help you discover the Warrior within''

HellBoy opened today and got rave reviews from the NYT and Salon, ``It's apparently a better depiction of Catholic theology than the Passion''


Future Business

In the future, pre-frosh will be here.

32 hours into the future, there will be a vast temporal discontinuity which will wash over the continent from East to West.

Some discussion occurs, in which, at one point, JFC threatens to read more romance novel blurbs

Motion to commend the Society for their Banana-based system of timekeeping which is unaffected by the aforementioned temporal discontinuity.
Passes 12-2-5+Spehn

Meeting adjourned, 1730 SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Kat Allen, Onseck
