Happy New Year to you. We'll be happy to offer SJSU URP students the
same break as in previous years -- registration free (we're charging $50),
neither lunch nor parking included. Each person interested should
submit a registration form (available on web site) and mark it "SJSU
student/comp'd per L. Rosenthal." Look forward to seeing you next month -- Lr.
