Welcome to another edition of ElseWhen, where we look back nostalgically on the "good old days" of mathNEWS. This issue we look back to Volume 29, Issue 1, originally published on May 28th, 1982.

Relative of the BLACK BOX? This issue has "Under New Management" superimposed on the logo on the cover. Here is a snippet of an article by the editor, Jim Jordan:
mathNEWS exists to inform and to entertain you. A small group of people cannot lease a considerably larger one. That's why I am asking (begging) you to lend a hand, give us some feedback or, at the very least, give a damn about mathNEWS. A box has been placed on the wall across from C&D on the third floor for you to tell us what you have to say. I hope that mathNEWS will soon be better than it ever was. It can be--but not without your help.
