The cruel intentions of this Group ACED are to actually steal clothe from variou staff members, faculty and admini tration until they arc lorccd to come to campus in --you guessed it, their birthday suits. The NACED manifesto, made avail able to members of the Cataclysm states, "Only together may we end the evil clothing empire. The world as we know il must change, and it i n 't going to happen when people arc wearing pants. The actions of this way-too lib cratin organization have included having baby raccoons, being naked and eating pizza. Except for the pizz..a this behav ior is unacceptable in accor dance with the decency laws we strictly abide by. The Cataclysm wa provided a rare interview with the terrorist leaders.

From the Editors The Cataclysm now maintains a blacklist of students who are banned for life (or until they graduate, whichever comes first) from all quotations in our publication. This list includes: anyone with a stupid catch-phrase, anyone ap pearing in three or more consecutive issues, and anyone else whom we find annoying. You know who you arc. Writers soliciting quotes from these individuals will be publicly flogged. From the Commencements Selection Committee We are proud to announce the selec tion of a fine new orator for our next New College commencement proceed ings: a Mr. Jeremy Springer. Mr. Springer is a renowned lawyer, news correspondent, and former politician. His current projects include a one-hour talk TV show entitled "The Jerry Springer Show," for which he has won seven Emmy awards. Students in attendance are advised that the proceedings may be televised for artis tic reasons. Chanting in unison will be permitted. SLAC MINUTES 3/31 *First order of business: The first request *The foUrth proposal was made by Jeffrey was made by Kat Dow on behalf of her stu-Blue, on behalf of Jeffrey Blue's campus dent-run for leat her a nd other ma t eri als for manu facturing home-made whips sturdy lumber for construction of "specialized" furniture and funding for six weeks worth of adv tisements in the Cataclysm. The SAC would be proud to ftmd an establishment so obviously beneficial to the student population. and we arc glad to hear that the Cataclysm is fina1ly getting an ad. A mo tion to allocate $10,350 was approved tmanimously on the condition tl1at Kat's '"n"'"' .. loan some of the aforementioned equipment for use in the Fetish Ball. *The second proposal was made by Lisa Deale Bowalk on behalf of the Organic Gardening tutorial. She is requesting $15 for plastic watering cans. However. she DID NOT FILL OUT THE FORMS COR RECTLY. We all yelled at her until she cried. and then voted unanimously to allo cate $0.00. Then we laughed so hard we nearly choked on our Thai Bangkok. *The third proposal was made by June Gwalthncy on behalf of Group ACED. She is requesting $500 for pizza and bail money to get Yiggis Kcem and Sm resar Davis out of Sarasota County Jail The SAC is opposed to having students in jail and in favor of nudit). A motion was made to allocate $300 to pay for piua and the re lease of Yiggis, but not Savrcsar. It was passed unanimously. on the grounds that NACED would reimburse us in stolen clotlung. yellow. A motion was made to alloca te $120 in order to paint all of the New College Community Bikes anything other than that shit1y orange color. It was unani mously approved. *The fifth proposal was made by the SAC. We were requesting that we allocate our selves $13,000 for an all-expenses paid trip to Vegas. We decided that, while this rrright at fust seem frivolous. we have an excel lent chance at turning a profit. There >vas some discussion of whether we should make individual votes on ho"' much to al locate on blackjack. slots and craps, but in the end \Ve decided to vote on one lump sum and to keep whatever was left over for ourselves. The motion was of course unan imously approved. *The si:....1h proposal was made by Max Campbell, Mike Sanderson. and Zac Konkol on behalf of tl1e Cataclysm. They arc requesting $9.000 to buy solid gold clubs with which to beat their re porters. a rack, to be purchased from KatiHyn Dow's Playtime Dungeon, and some seeds to grow rare African orchids in the Pub Lab. They said that if the money was not allocated. the) would no longer edit the SAC minutes for content in the usual manner. Ho\\cvcr, we arc not sus ceptible to blackmail. We know that the Cataclysm staff would never l1ave the guts to publish what actually goes on here. The editors left crying, like the pathetic ,.,. usses they arc.
