the below latex document shows the 
trick I finally figured out about how to get
LaTeX author and title written into the .pdf description

unfortunately, just as I thinking
I had this completely worked out
I added a newline into my title:

\title{sugconf class example: \\ 
       Paper written for an annual SUG conference
       }%end title
which broke the write of \@title into the .pdf 

so: commentary, polishing, critique are welcome
