Cloverdale Lab Looking for Test Subjects
This ad appeared in yesterday's Confederacy Times, Cloverdale's biweekly newspaper. This month the Times will be delivered to your yard, roof or neighbor's yard by an air cannon mounted on the roof of Cloverdale's Comprehensive School and operated by members of the School's Science Fiction Club, the SciFives and the school's math club - who will calculate the trajectories (the Times makes an acceptable donation to both clubs for the service, the money from which pays their train fare to the SciFi Festival held every November at Tamworth on Tide). Many members of the clubs already responded to this ad.
"Filroy's father and I are so please he's decided to enroll in this year long program," said Mrs. Bloom as she explained her reasons for requesting a year's absence for her son from school. "We're hoping he will make some new friends and, well... Making normal friends is more than enough." As a side note she added, "Besides, he meets the only qualification listed. Filroy loves cake."
