    Lab Note

    Since the front entrance has been closed, some bicycles have become orphaned on the front plaza. While the scaffold and weather wall are being built, they are not in the way, but when the windows are being replaced, the bikes will have to be moved. We will have security cut all locks and remove them to another location. There are new bike racks on the west side of the building to make up for the lost spaces on the plaza.

    Letter to the Editor


    Though it probably matters more in Pittsburgh than anywhere else, there is a difference between "Melon" and "Mellon." Both spellings were used in the table of physics students who participated in research at the Tevatron fixed-target program ("Education: Right on Target,"

    FERMINEWS, Vol. 23, No. 12). It is to the credit of your softwareˇand, I daresay, a relief to the members of the Mellon familyˇthat ýCarnegie Melonţ was not considered identical to ýCarnegie Mellon.ţ A ýCarnegie melonţ is a hypothetical menu item that I've not yet been able to convince a local club to adopt.

    A more cynical or suspicious person would be tempted to think that you had made this error intentionally, as a test to see if the president actually reads your newsletter. I do, and I think it's very well done.
