17 December 1997:
ZED VS. THE LIBRARIAN-1
One of the brighter lights of a.r.s., "Zed," decided to throw his hat into the ringif it wasn't on his lapfor The Librarian's Challenge to Critics and Scientologists Alike. In fact, Zed had The Librarian's undivided attention for seven, count 'em, seven messages in a row. They later have a falling out when Zed stands her up for a "date," but they burn up usenet till that sad day. Here is the first of seven in their funny and very informative series, where The Librarian "drops the other shoe," so to speak: she informs Zed, after he "loses" the first round, that they are playing the strip version of "Stump the Librarian."

Subject: ZED VS. THE LIBRARIAN-1
In trying to STUMP THE LIBRARIAN regarding the Public Research
Foundation's Press Release, "HIDDEN TIES BETWEEN IRS AND SCIENTOLOGY
REVEALED," Zed brought in some W-A-A-A-A-Y overdue books, and said:
(First quoting from the press release):
>>Emory is currently
>>Director of the Washington State University Law School's
>>Graduate Program in Taxation in Seattle.
Then Zed sed:
>This isn't a particulary important claim, but I'll challenge it
>anyway. What evidence is there that Meade Emory currently holds
GOOD QUESTION, ZED, BUT...YOU DIDN'T STUMP THE LIBRARIAN!
Although, I'm afraid the Public Research Foundation got their
universities slightly crossed. According to the information *I* have,
Meade Emory *is* the Director of the Law School's Graduate Program in
Taxation, but at the UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON.
The University of Washington's web site has a Law School Faculty
Here is an excerpt from it:
"The Director of the Graduate Program in Taxation, Meade Emory, is
also a full-time member of the teaching faculty and was formerly
Assistant to the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service and
Legislation Counsel of the Joint Committee on Taxation of the U.S.
Congress. Aside from his broad practice experience, Professor Emory
has taught tax law at many of the nation's leading law schools including
Duke University, Georgetown University, UCLA, New York University,
Northwestern University, and the University of Pennsylvania.
Roland L. Hjorth, A.B., LL.B. Dean
Thomas R. Andrews, B.A., M.A., J.D. Associate Dean for Academic Affairs
Meade Emory, B.A., J.D., LL.M. Acting Professor &
Program in Taxation"
If anyone wants to verify this further, the publically-listed phone
number for the Law School is 206-543-4550, and the receptionist there
said Meade Emory's secretary's name is Gloria.
NICE TRY, THOUGH, ZED, AND COME BACK *ANY* TIME TO PLAY...
STUMP THE LIBRARIAN.
Okay, Zed, so you have to take off one article of clothing, now, and
watches don't count. (I *did* tell you this was a strip challenge,
--<The ARSCC Librarian>
P.S. to the Public Research Foundation: Okay, guys, I'm sure someone
from there reads this newsgroup, since your press release got sent to
so many of our ARSCC luminaries. This correction I did for you is a
freebie, but--tsk, tsk! I hope you issue a correction, and that your
faces are crimson with shame. I have a good mind to make your bottoms
crimson...Oh, (heaving sigh), I can't talk that way! You have no idea
what it *does* to me...
*The ARSCC, like its *strict* (but gentle) librarian, does not exist.
