                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in TELORINTHE!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Cut this out and put it 
in your scrapbooks, SUDDENLY, THE VAN!  'Cause they got 4-0-0 and moved up to 3rd!  
MVP award for MELANIE OBERN?  MIDDLE WAY 21's proud of her after beating CUSTODIAN 
and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  CUSTODIAN got smashed by 
MELANIE OBERN, and lost 16 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause 
it's Number One!  BANDIT PRINCE knows this.  He was Dark Arena Challenged by the 
Duelmaster.  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think ACCORDION 
should let BANDIT PRINCE be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who 
was the wiseguy that said TELORINTHE's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The 
Swinging Aardvark?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of MIDDLE WAY 21 must be getting lonely.  They were 
the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind 
of warriors are OLDIES?  MIDDLE WAY 21, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't 
get them to accept an invitation!  Can MIDDLE WAY 21's MORIS NAHR be more popular 
than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All TELORINTHE ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Like, who is this beast???  ACCORDION gets sent to the Dark 
Arena, battles BANDIT PRINCE, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet OLDIES manager is 
surprised!  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Black Lightning II -- Way to grab that Team On The Move title with 34 big points!
You are some fine scoring machine. -- Coach, Oldies

Morris Nohr -- I guess I just have too much umpah for you. -- Accordion

Eric -- I know I have done it before, but I still think I am just plain lucky to beat
you.  My end game must be better than I thought.  Thank you, Charles Goran! --
Contract Bridge

Melanie -- Pardon the pun, but I think I just "cleaned" your clock. -- Custodian

     Clean clocks keep better time.

Sven, Sven, Sven, did you have to have your prize and eat the carmel corn too? --
Cracker Jacks

Petro Salm -- It sure is a long way from Cub scouts, isn't it? -- Life Scout

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Coach

Our heartfelt congratulations to Accordion.  Go, man, go! -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Life Scout -- I can't believe you did that--and the steward didn't call it "mis-
matched."  Because it WAS.  Totally.  I should get points for lasting three minutes.
-- Petro Salm

Accordion -- If I didn't start OUT tone-deaf, I am now. -- Moris Nahr

Sanger -- I was tempted to do all sorts of things, in the sure knowledge that your
manager wouldn't notice, but decided not to.  Besides being unfair to you, it'd be
too much work. -- Sam Tall
P.S.  Us Shews aren't the best of friends with Fratsfans, you know.  There was that
war....

Custodian -- I think that chlorox in a squirt bottle is PROBABLY unfair. -- Melanie
Obern
P.S.  But my armor is very clean now.

Faber Castell -- You make me think of colored pencils.  That's probably why I lost,
too, it's hard to fight when thinking of colored pencils. -- Rosana Sabel
P.S.  Or maybe pastels.

it and that we will see you there!
