     Links between The Mount School York
    and the Republic of China were
    strengthened this week with the arrival
    of yet another consignment of cheap
    Chinese goods. Although import – ex-
    port expert Derk Chivers was unavail-
    able for comment as we went to press,
    the latest arrivals bore all the hallmarks
    of his shadowy dealings. An exclusive
    picture shows considerable numbers of
    instruments rarely seen in Yorkshire as
    well as the possibility that he might also
    have started dealing in clothing. Al-
    though there is no direct evidence to
    suggest that he may have had a hand in
    the recent ‘bra wars’ incident, a con-
    signment of plus fours and boater hats
    seems to have found its way into the
    school uniform shop. Our undercover                   Microintonation Time as the Mount School Wind Quadrintu-

    containers such as those used for inter-
    national trade in the school car park.

                          Book Week Update
 The News In Brief




                     Staff and school alike were surprised and shocked this term when an extract from Lady Chatterley’s Lover was read
                     out in morning meeting to celebrate ‘Book Week’. Although a spokesperson for the English department wasn’t avail-
                     able at the time of going to press, it is believed that the book is considered essential reading for all year 8 and above
                     and the loveable if excitable Mellors is a popular character, indeed, one of the Bronte sisters’ finest male characters.

                     ICT Goes on “Charm Offensive”
                     In a bid to slough off the negative image they have so richly deserved over the years, the ICT department have been
                     told to get rid of the socks with “User Error” embroidered on them, get some new ones and damn well pull them up,
                     we can reveal.

                        Perx Archive to be Expanded
                     In response to the many emails we have received recently, (see back page for a small selection) asking us about the
                     fine quality of the images we use in Uptight, we can reveal that the source of the images is the renowned Perx Ar-
                     chive, founded shortly after the invention of the Daguerrotype by Field Marshall B. Perx. A little known fact is that
                     the word Daguerrotype literally means ‘ex-army type’. The good news is that the archive is to be expanded and hosted
                     on the new school web site. For full details please email us at uptight@mount…….etc…….
Letters and e-mails to the editor
  This term has seen record numbers of e-mails sent to our office. Largely this is be-
  cause those endearing boys in the IT office have signed us all up to as many newslet-
  ters as they could find in case anyone should complain to them that they weren’t re-
  ceiving e-mails. It’s certainly worked and we’ve been literally inundated. For the un-
  initiated, we ought to explain that a Spam Filter is not a slotted spoon used by the
  cholesterol conscious although what it is is a mystery yet to be explained. On the
  other hand, we haven’t had any real letters. We believe that this is because nobody
  has sent us any on account of there only being an e-mail contact address. On bal-
  ance, the editors believe that it’s safer this way. For obvious reasons, the identities
  of the senders of e-mails have been omitted.
