The OUMMCBNOM Mission Statement Contest: Round Two

	As those of you who read your OUMMCBNOM regularly know, progress in the
OUMMCBNOM Mission Statement Contest has been halted for the past few month as
a three-way-tie has remained unbroken.  So, we have decided that we must
revitalize this contest by creating a second round of competition.
	Only the best mission statements have been allowed to enter round two.  The
three tied entries, one Printing Office Staff's Choice entry, and one
randomly chosen entry will be the selection from which you can pick your
favorite.  However, we will not tell you which entry is which, as we would
not want this to effect your choice.  All missions will be beginning this
round on equal footing.  Please turn in your mission statement ballot
(located on the last page of this OUMMCBNOM) to an OUMMCBNOM staff member by
November 25.  We really mean it this time!  Now, let's meet the contestants.
