The cover of this mathNEWS asks a very appropriate question: "What is this thing called mathNEWS?" Well, we will answer that for you, as presented in Volume 38, Issue 1, published on May 10, 1985.
The Return of the Chevron: Imprint's predecessor, The Chevron, is apparently making a comeback this term:
mathNEWS is proud to welcome the Chevron back to campus in its everlasting pursuit of truth and the Marxist ideal. We expect that The Globe and Mail are fairly shaking in their boots at the prospect of having their capitalist decadence exposed. We are glad to once again have material for our humour section, which has suffered greatly in the past six [ten by my count] months, lacking a butt to its pointed jokes. We are also glad to have another humour paper on campus - the Imprint, try though George might, was never able to attain the heights of dialetcical nonsense reached by the Chevracs, in their previous incarnations.
