Some 15 centuries ago, the Priscillianists believed that God’s power came from the sun, so they abandoned their clothing. In the 1890s, social nudism came to England; by 1907, Germany allowed nudism; the French said Oooh-la-la in 1927, and the first official nudist gathering was held in the U.S. shortly thereafter. Not everyone was happy about that, naturally. Yes, participants were consenting adults but groups consisted of both genders, which was scandalous. Police were sum- moned, arrests were made (a California woman served time for nudity in the 1940s), and laws were drafted (in Montana, public nudity can get you six months in jail). And yet, there’s no denying that some people still get nekkid for social reasons, and Smith had to know why. Interviewing a nudist didn’t offer enough answers – so he shed clothes and inhibitions and visited nude resorts in California and France, sunbathed on a free beach in Florida, and took a cruise ship “nakation.” Smith went nude grocery shopping, talked with the mayor of San Francisco, and learned how nudist magazines in the ‘50s helped Playboy magazine.

The new facility is expected to be completed on the 320-acre site, located north of the SDSU campus, by December 2015. When complete, the SDSU Cow-Calf Education and Research Unit will feature functional, working cattle facilities that can be used for educational demonstrations highlighting proper cattle handling and treatment techniques. A main building will contain a conference center, laboratory space and offices. A wing of the main building will serve as a multi-purpose area that can be used for maternity pens or display pens for livestock evaluation. “Hands-on learning is a very important benefit we offer our students in the SDSU College of Agriculture and Biological Sciences,” says Barry Dunn, South Dakota Corn Utilization Council Endowed Dean of the SDSU College of Agriculture & Biological Sciences and Extension Director. “This new facility will be a beneficial tool that helps our students gain practical experience to help further their career goals.” A monoslope research building will house state-of-theart equipment to apply nutritional treatments and measure individual feed and water intake. Replicated pastures on the site will be used to conduct grazing management research. “We are excited that construction has officially begun on the SDSU Cow-Calf Education and Research Unit,” says Joe Cassady, SDSU Animal Science Department Head. “When completed, construction of this facility will better enable our faculty and students to pursue their scholarly interests. This project would not have been possible without the dedicated efforts and generosity of our alumni and friends.” The new Cow-Calf Education and Research Unit will host Extension meetings and educational events supporting South Dakota beef producers. “We’ve offered use of the facilities to our neighboring educational institutions such as Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown, S.D., and Mitchell Technical Institute, too,” Dunn adds. Each year, more than 600 SDSU undergraduate students will gain hands-on training in the state-of-the-art facilities in the areas of beef nutrition, management, breeding, genetics, reproduction, cattle evaluation, seedstock marketing, animal welfare and low-stress handling techniques. ?iGrow Sunset Manor Irene, S.D. at (605) 263-3318 or apply online at www.avera.org/careers Petroleum Transport Drivers Needed Full or Part-Time • Excellent Wages • Paid vacation • Health Insurance Benefits • Good Equipment • 401K • Paid Training • Profit Sharing Potential Must possess a Class A CDL with Hazmat and Tanker Endorsements or willing to obtain.

So maybe it’s time to purge, to donate things that don’t fit anymore. That’d make a lot of room, although there’s one suit you’ll never be able to throw out. You’ve had it so long you can’t even remember where you got it. No matter how much weight you lose or gain, it always fits – though it’s rumpled now, and impossible to iron. And in the new book “Naked at Lunch” by Mark Haskell Smith, you’ll see what it’s like to wear that Birthday Suit in public. It’s one of those recurring dreams-bordering-on-nightmare: being naked in public. It happens… sometimes on purpose, which made Mark Haskell Smith wonder: why do everyday people take their clothes off to hang out was surprised that he liked nude hiking. And he discovered this: when naked, we’re really all the same. The disparity lies in time. Go ahead. Admit it: you’re curious. That’s why you’re still reading here, and it’s why I think a lot of people will enjoy “Naked at Lunch.” On the best side, author Mark Haskell Smith’s escapades and his observances are hilarious. They made me laugh out loud more than once; the problem is that I can’t tell you about them, since most aren’t fit to repeat in a family newspaper. That leads me to one of the negatives: this book’s profaneness can sometimes descend into juvenility. That goes double in the repetition that often occurs as Smith seems to marvel at his unusual surroundings. Funny, but giggly: it’s a fine line, but less of the latter would have suited me better. And yet, I come back to curiosity. I had it, and that kept me reading this sliceof-life book. If you wonder, if you’re experienced, or if you just need a laugh, missing “Naked at Lunch” is a raw deal. ——— Want to uncover more about being uncovered? “Naked: A Cultural History of American Nudism” by Brian Hoffman is a comprehensive, illustrated look at taking off your clothes in a social situation. It’s more in-depth and definitely more serious, but if you’re looking for information you won’t find in the Smith book, you’ll likely find it here.
