    IAF NEWS

    After a year long hiatus, the Independent Activity Federation is back at work. Yesterday, it organized a sledding outing on the dam and a Diplomacy game.

    Both activities were excellent, and the Diplomacy game is still running. Current leaders appear to be the Eastern Bloc nations, although France and it's puppet nations are putting up a fight.

    Look for more details in tomorrow's paper.

    THE BLIND HIKE

    We departed from Beaver Creek cabin after dark, heading for Jack Lord Skills. As we proceeded, Lee Gardy was seen flailing about screaming "Stop it, Hunt!" We also stumbled upon a Japanese father and son stranded and looking for High Point. The Beast exhibited his awesome strength by lifting a Pontiac out of a ditch.

    When we finally arrived at the Skills Building, it was determined that Tom Ray, Greg Bumgardner, and Tim Hunt cheated to reach their goal (they were all punished). Tim was whitewashed by the Beast and Tom had to hike BACK blindfolded. Greg and Tom weaseled out of punishment and have been ridiculed. The most important point of this activity is that everyone had fun.

ALIMENTARY BEGINNINGS

Upon arrival at WINTER CAMP XIII we had the Oaks Lunch. Later that day we had the Caveman Dinner. It is an annual meal that everybody enjoyed. Two out of the three tables decided it would be fun to spill milk on the table to wrap it up. The Caveman Dinner was the most warmly received meal.

GADGET OF THE DAY

Highlighted today as gadget of the day is the ever-popular and useful kitchamajig. The original kitchamajig, which is now in the Winter Camp Museum, was brought to Winter Camp I by Jeff Rand because Ruth would let him take it and no one knew what, if anything it could be used for.

As soon as it hit Winter Camp it was an instant success, it stirs, scraps, strains, slices, dices, flips, and flattens to name only a portion of its multiple uses, truly no kitchen is complete without one. In fact one year several Winter Camp veterans purchased a Kitchamajig at the WC food shopping expedition so that enough (6 or 7) would be available at WC and they could have one of their very own.

* Remember: The possibilities are limited only by our imagination.

ASK THE BEAST

Dear Beast,
Is it true that you're the Anti-Christ?

Dear Misguided,
No, that's just a terrible rumor started by a bunch of Mackerel Snappers and Bible Thumpers jealous of my, shall we say extravagant lifestyle.


Dear Beast,
Why are you the only Winter-Camper that has his own question and answer column?
Signed,
I Wanna Know

Dear I Wanna Know,
May be because I am the only Winter-Camper with the sensitivity and compassion to help others with difficult personal problems, plus I threatened to beat up the editor.


Dear Mr. Beast,
I'm playing Diplomacy against your brother. Do you have any advice?
Signed,
Hopelessly Lost

Dear Hopelessly Lost,
Yeah, idiots like you should not try to play games of wit, as you are unarmed.
