Recently stumbled upon this and find it very intriguing!
Since 1981, a group calling themselves 'The Orphanage', have been placing cryptic advertisements at least every May Day (May 1st), and at other
times as well, in the University of Arizona's student newspaper, "The Arizona Daily Wildcat". Apparently no one knows who this group is or why they
are placing these ads.
An individual by the name of Bryan Hance, who worked at the college newspaper, has a website
posts each of the advertisements as well as pictures of items sent to him by 'The Orphanage'. In addition to this, he invites people to speculate on
the hidden meaning of each advertisement. The cryptic advertisements seem to be based around the central ideas of religion and government/communism,
at least that’s what I am getting so far.
An article in Explorer News
provides a nice summary of the May Day
I'm still sifting through all the stuff on Mr. Hance's website (there is a lot of stuff there) and have yet to come up with any theories as to who
is submitting these advertisements or why. A few theories that I have come across are; it is a group of people preparing for an uprising, perhaps some
kind of revolution, and they are using the advertisements as a covert way of communicating; a group of intellectual friends having some fun; a lawyer
who's services have supposedly been obtained by The Orphanage for the sole purpose of submitting these advertisements.
From the stuff that I have read so far, I’m leaning towards the possibility that it could very well be some form of covert communication between
several individuals or groups as they prepare for ‘something’. But I suppose that it could just be someone having some fun, but I like the first
theory better. After all, this is ATS!
