Committee Reports


Fweekcomm needs help typing up freshman names. Unfortunately, she left them at her house. Oops.


We have another new Prentice! Kelsey!


We have a new Theftcomm, ALC! There will be a schedule soon.

Star Chamber

KR picked up a package--Harper Collins sent us an advance copy of Fragile Things which KR is now reviewing. (Neil Gaiman's new collection of short stories.) It is explained that the Skinner is reading the book still in the box, because otherwise it would've had to go to Panthercomm and Bluebellcomm before being read. The Skinner is All Powerful.


ALC points out to ESK that she should go to the Treasurer Training. KHA tells KR that he should go too, in case Kate falls into a black hole or a problem set or something.


It will be published Real Soon Now--we're thinking October.

Discussion about whether we destroyed HRSFA last spring results in comments about Dinner not being Destruction.


Old Business

The discussion from Committee Reports continues.


New Business

ESK will talk to J about LHE stuff, even though he's old.

We will be removing the not-so-new-anymore books from the New Books shelf.

KR is turning 21 on Monday! Rebecca is also getting older on Monday!


Future Business

In the future we will die from term
In the future we will have a dinner trip!
Apparently in the future there will be a Guild game, for which Prentice Laura is assembling packets.
In the future we will send some books to MGH!

``It would be really cool if there was a company that bought books for $0.25 and then delivered them to hospitals''
``This would not make them very much money--that whole buying things and giving them away thing...''

Motion to form a company to buy excess bananas from LaVerdes and sell them to hospitals at a loss, frendly-amended to at a profit passes 21-4-2+Spehn

BING! Meeting adjourned, 1830 SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Katherine Allen, Onseck
