WINTER CAMP NEWS CHANGES STYLE

Yesterday during the publication of Winter Camp News a dispute erupted with the printing company of Osvath Graphics Inc. and caused a suspension of their contract with the Winter Camp News. A one day contract has been formed with the Daha Print Setters LTD., a subsidiary of the Rand-Daha Associates.

Unfortunately the Daha company will not continue to print the newspaper after today. This will be the final issue of the Winter Camp News until further arrangements can be made. The Winter Camp News is not expected to be able to resume publication for the next 362 days.

GOLF COURSE SEES NEW RECORD

Two double foursomes of Winter Camp golfers teed off from the Beaver Creek Skills Building for the par 62 ceremony site hole. Nearly an hour later and after 52 strokes, both teams had a tie score on the course with this record breaking nonuple eagle.

The Macionskites led by Mark Bollman played conservatively and lost no golf balls. They completed some 15 minutes ahead of the Fultsters.

The fultsters dominated their attack with several powerful shots by the Beast. Play was complicated for the Fulsters by an inability to keep the ball on the fairway. After this complication was solved, the Beast hit the shot of the tournament, which was a 300 yard drive from the top of the site to the green. Three shots later, ace putser Douglas Ronald Wilson found the cup.

GASTRONOMIC DELIGHTS

Winter Campers consumed 4 large meals yesterday. The total calorie intake of the four meals were 4110 calories while weighing nearly 7 lbs.

Attendees ate their fair share of Danishes, cereal, and orange juice yesterday morning as breakfast was served in the typical European fashion. Rumor has it that after his success with the Continental Breakfast chef Michael Osvath was asked to work with many of the other fine chefs of Europe at a McDonald's in Paris.

Tuesday's Hot Potato Lunch featured participants hurriedly trying to consume the 1395 calories offered while passing around the potato. The TRS-80 continued its tradition of fine service by providing the necessary BEEP for this active meal.

Last night's dinner, the Random Meal, saw head chef Ron Donohue prepare a feast of foods ranging from chicken to a strawberry shortcake. The shortcake traditionally made with fresh, had frozen strawberries which proved to the publisher's favorite part of this repast.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the Casino Snack as popcorn and pop were provided during the activities at the roulette and poker tables.

ASK THE BEAST

DEAR MR. BEAST: When I was born I came out backwards. I have been confused ever since.
- A. C., Ferndale

DEAR A. C.: Generally when Tibetan Tapir give birth to their young, the same thing occurs. Perhaps you should move there and learn to relate with your cousin species.

DEAR GREAT BEAST: When I visit the latrine I always find it difficult to determine how many sheets to use when wiping. Last night I sat an extra 5.356 seconds trying to decide whether to use 2.85 or 2.91 sheets. Finally I took a guess and you know the result. I fell short.
- M. B., .75 AA .24 AP .01 WC

DEAR M. B: I recommend 2.88 sheets and a bar of soap.
