Committee Reports


The FYSM is due 15 June. We have a plan.


Jourcomm is accepting submissions! Please? Seriously, we need art and stories.

Frustrated Authorcomm

Hates Canada.


MHG gets thrown out of the dorm tomorrow. :-(

Motion to all say how sad passes 9-2-1+Spehn

The Skinner will be gone for the next two meetings, but unlike Margaret he returns on the 26th.


The mystery old donation is now only one box--we're not sure why. A number of our (old) letters have gone out. A new donation is coming! Hooray!

Star Chamber

Ed will be dispatched to give the Warehouse a check, unless he doesn't want to in which case someone else will do it.


Old Business

We have an old ex-Skinner and an old ex-LHE here. They say that back in the day they used the ViceGavel--it has burrs, and the new Gavel is bigger and nicer. Jamie has asked for an invoice for the new Shultz shelves, which will be scarlet and wheeled and over by the windows in the Circ room, and some experimental pieces to see if we can boost the rest of the shelves in the Circ room to 10 high by replacing them with the Auroras.


The dexmistress has mail about the bondagecomm/magdex interface.


New Business

Jamie demonstrates that he does know more of the usual motion than the old people, but they have morphed over the years.

Jamie impresses the alums with his MITSFS-enriched parentage.

KHA is mocked for her Jourcomm coup.
``You didn't get anything?''
``She got engaged''- Jamie
``I don't think that has any thing to do with it. I didn't get engaged
to the old Jourcommm'' -KHA
``What, he didn't tell you? If you can't manage to put out a TZ, how can you put out a child?'' -Jamie
``Don't we have some future business to discuss?''


Future Business

Much discussion between the alumni about how there are way more women on campus than there were Back in The Day.

We have a new sophomore keyholder! JH is now a sophomore!

PP is here, and will be back soon, hooray!

Pandemonium was going to open yesterday!

Motion: Now with 100% more bananas! Passes 7-6-0+Spehn

The alums note that the Society hasn't really changed.

BING! Meeting adjourned, 1830 SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Kat Allen, Onseck
