PRESENT FOR WILLIAM BARWELL

In the third of her "presents" series, The Librarian gets a little strict with a.r.s. regular William Barwell when he lips off and hands her a LIMP OPINION about some of the HARD FACTS she had posted from the Library of Congress. Her present for Barwell is a comprehension test for dummies. There is no record of him showing up to respond.


From: The_Librarian<Anonymous@Replay.com>
Subject: PRESENT FOR WILLIAM BARWELL
Date: 1997/12/29
Message-ID: <199712290541.GAA23572@basement.replay.com>
Newsgroups: alt.religion.scientology


Why, William Barwell, you little imp Pope, you. Sometimes you're so
cute and funny, but *sometimes* you can be *so* naughty. I had a good
mind to give you just coal and switches, but--<heaving bosom> well, you
*know* what the idea of *switches* does to me.

And just what did you do that was so naughty? Well, in my message
called "THE LIBRARIAN SAYS *NOT* RECOMMENDED READING!" I had posted the
following HARD FACTS about the new version of "New Slant on Life":

TITL: A New slant on life / L. Ron Hubbard.
IMPR: Los Angeles : Bridge Publications, c1988.
PHYS: 206 p.
CLNA: Norman F. Starkey as executor of the Estate of L. Ron
      Hubbard d.b.a. L. Ron Hubbard Library, Los Angeles
DCRE: 1988       DPUB: 8Oct88       DREG: 28Nov88
APAU: some text, compilation, paintings used for dustcover art:
      Church of Scientology International
PREV: Prev. reg. 1970, A145211.
LINM: NM: "some text, compilation, paintings used for cover art."
ECIF: 1/B/L
XREF: cL. Ron Hubbard Estate of. SEE L. Ron Hubbard Library, Los
      Angeles.

In replying to my message, you DELETED the HARD FACTS above, and left
in these soft, quiet questions I had asked:

>>Wonder who wrote the "NM" (New Material) that is described as
>>"some text"? Wonder how *much* new text? Wonder why those
>>authors aren't given credit anywhere in or on the book? Wonder,
>>wonder, wonder.

Instead of answering me with HARD FACTS, you tried to hand me the
following LIMP OPINIONS:

>New material it ain't. ...It's Hubbard all right. There are no
>other authors... .

Now, William, it is *very* bad form, and a *very* bad idea to be
condescending to the Librarian, to SNIP her facts, and then to
pooh-pooh them when you haven't done your homework. Cute or not, you
were *very* naughty. So! The present I have for *you* is a little
Library Reading Quiz on "New Slant on Life." Ready? Here's the quiz:

QUESTION 1:
FIND ALL THE SUBLTLE CHANGES IN THE TWO PARAGRAPHS BELOW, AND DESCRIBE
THEM FULLY.

VERSION A (regarding a child):
"You try to give him his freedom. He's so suspicious of you he will
have a terrible time trying to adjust. The transition period will be
difficult. But, at the end of it, you'll have a well ordered, sociable
child, thoughtful of you and, very important to you, a child who loves
you."

VERSION B (regarding a child):
"You try to give him his freedom. He's so suspicious of you he will
have a terrible time trying to adjust. The transition period will be
terrible. But, at the end of it, you'll have a well-ordered,
well-trained, social child, thoughtful of you and, very important to
you, a child who loves you."

QUESTION 2:
WHICH OF THE ABOVE EXCERPTS FROM "NEW SLANT ON LIFE" WAS WRITTEN BY L.
RON HUBBARD, AND WHICH WAS WRITTEN BY UNKNOWN AUTHORS WORKING FOR
CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY INTERNATIONAL?

QUESTION 3:
WHICH PARAGRAPH COMES FROM WHICH EDITION OF THE BOOK? (HINT: One comes
from the original 1965 edition, which says "by L. Ron Hubbard" on the
cover, and the other comes from from the 1997 paperback edition, which
does not say *by*, but has the trademark "L. Ron Hubbard" on the
cover.)

QUESTION 4:
ARE THERE OTHER SUBTLE LITTLE CHANGES LIKE THAT THROUGHOUT THE BOOK,
AND IN MANY OTHER WORKS WITH L. RON HUBBARD'S NAME ON THEM, BUT
ACTUALLY REGISTERED BY "CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY, EMPLOYER FOR HIRE" AS
THE AUTHOR? (Hint: The answer is "Yes.")

END OF QUIZ!

Now, William, I *really* wanted to give you a much nicer present, but
you *mustn't* be condescending toward the Librarian.

So please be a sweetie and post your answers. Or, if you can't answer
the questions on the quiz, please write 500 times, "I will always check
my facts before challenging the Librarian, because she *loves* HARD
FACTS, and *hates* LIMP OPINIONS," and post it to the newsgroup. And
then I'll have a *special* present for you!

'Cause even when you are naughty, I just *can't* stay mad at you.

You little imp Pope, you!

--<The ARSCC Librarian>

P.S.-Psst! Just between you and me, I don't *really* care whether you
answer the quiz or not. I figure neither of *us* can lose on this
either way, but a certain little raw-tailed poodle and the people
holding his leash are gonna' be biting each others' legs to find out
that somebody actually did a *side-by-side* comparison to *every word*
in those different editions! Wonder how many of these "new" editions
have been sold through Barnes & Noble, Waldenbooks, B. Dalton, and
others? Wonder how many copies Bridge has sold? Wonder, wonder, wonder.
Kisses and hugs!
