Stove and Cat are candidated for UA

To the Editor:

We are pleased to announce the candidacy for Undergraduate Association president and vice president of Magee the stove and Milhous the cat, commonly known as stove and cat. The stove and cat are running as write-in candidates in the March 13 elections.

We would like to clear up certain unfortunate misconceptions which have arisen during the course of the campaign concerning the identities of the stove and the cat. The stove and the cat are most emphatically not people, nor do they represent members of the human species in any way, shape, or form.

Magee is a gas stove with four burners, an oven, a broiler, and a clock that does not work. Milhous is a white, female, short-haired cat of anonymous pedigree. She is three years old; that's twenty-one for you and me. The stove and cat share common ethical values and interact well in the decision making process. They personify the true spirit of independent idealism which characterizes the MIT student body.

To facilitate the choice of leaders from among the many fine, worthy, and noble candidates running in this election, we would like to challenge our competitors to a public debate.

We hope you will think long and hard about the important decision which lies before you, and we trust that you will choose the stove and the cat for UAP and UAVP.
