Misprint Foreign Correspondent
Feeling sluggish?
Snails creep into menu
By Explains Canell
Of The Misprint
Great strides have been
made, for the Spring term, in
culturally. orienting, college
students, as tar as their eating
habits are concerned, accor­
ding to Lester Frederick, recen­
tly appointed ecologist and
dietician for the College.
Among the changes and ad­
ditions that have resulted from
Frederick’s presence on cam­
pus is the introduction of
escargot to the daily cafeteria
menu.
“These little escargot that will
be served are not imported
creatures,” he said. “They are
young and fresh, because they
are gathered every morning
from the Environmental Lear­
ning Center.”
.“This will save expense for
the center, because it will
eliminate snail bait costs, once
used when the creatures were
viewed as pests instead of a
rare delicacy.” “Local snails are
very superior for consumption
purposes, because you don’t
know what is' in the store-
bought ones,” he added.
Methods
of
preparing
escargot are virtually limitless,
according to Frederick, but in-
spite of this, cafeteria officials
have only one use in mind—a
tender and flavorful addition to
the salad bar menu.

“We plan to circle the cam­

Woody Allen
entertains students

Famous humorist and actor
Woody Allen was on campus
last week conducting a
workshop on the topic of
humor.
Allen’s appearance is the first
in a series of one cultural event
to be held throughout the year
at the College, sponsored by
“Nobody’s Records,” which in-
cidently has a special on
albums this week at a low, low
price of only $11.98. One of
the albums to be sold is simply
called “The Dictators.” Al
Bum, the Misprint’s Music
Critic, wrote an absolutely fan­
tastic review erf' this album,
which appears on Page 11.
Nobody’s Records has the
largest selection of record
albums, cassette and eight­
track tapes in theTri-County
area. It also has basement
bargains on old, discarded X-
rated home movies someone
found in the city dump one
day.
Nobody’s Records is located
somewhere in the Tri-County
area, but due to a numerous
amount of lawsuits pending,
disclosure of its exact location
at this time is not feasible.

The Misprint is an April

Not a word of truth has
been written on pages 1, 2,
15 or 16 of this issue.
The stories on these four
pages have been written for
sheer enjoyment and the
names have even been
changed (in some instan­
ces) to protest the innocent

time in the context.
The staff hopes that the
readers enjoy the articles
as much as they did writing
them.
So it has been said. They
do not claim any words
written on pages 1, 2, 15 or
16, and will never own up
to them if they are asked.
