WAR ON HUMOR:
Garg Hiuts 'Campus Like- Warm Beer,
Daily and Reader's Digest Satirized

LESLIE FIEDLER IS COMING

BY STEVE WILbSTROM
Gargoyle,' the campus humor
rmagazine, made its annual reap-
pearance yesterday with most of
the sparkle of warmed-oaver cham-
pagne. Altlhough the *Garg is nei-
ther scintillating nor stimulating,
this year's first issue is a marked
improvement over .last year's sad

of ferings.
The' magazine, begins as usual
with the "The Gargoyle Philo-
sophy," written by new editor Rick
Bohni (Hugh M. Bohn). Except
for the title, the column has giv-
en up on the futile quest of a hu-
morous parody of Hugh Heffner's
treatises..

"Ann Abort's" column is a rath-
er tired lampoon of columns of the
Dear Abby, Ann Landers variety,
a subject that defies satirization-
the original is always funnier than
the parody. The piece did shine,
however, in the squib at the end
about Viet Nam.
One notable improvement in the
new edition is Garg's decision to
properly credit borrowed material.
Two cartoons, one from the Yale
Record and the other from the
Phoenix were among bright spots
of the magazine.
The less said about the "College
Life Adjustment Guide," the bet-
ter. This seems to be just the sort
of hackneyed article Garg Insists
on running every year in essen-
tially the same form. "Florence
Nightmare" and her agitatedhy-
pos fall into the same dismal class.
Lissa Matross' Luci Johnson
scrapbook was one of the more
original offerings, particularly the
Reader's Digest and Daily sketches.
Garg seems to have finally dis-
covered humor in this newspaper
that goes deeper than the typos.
Phil Zaret's caricatures of LBJ,
et. al. are well done but the ac-

The editors of Gargoyle should
be informed that In-Out pieces are
OUT this season.
"The 1-94 Highwayman" is
probably the magazines' worst ar-
ticle. To be at all successful, parody
has to retain at least something
of the flavor of the original, not
just a couple of metric patterns.
At a matter of fact, the poem
could not seem to decide whether
or not it had a metrical pattern,
rhyme scheme, or point to make.
The main problem with the hu-
mor in Gargoyle is that all of the
attempts are entirely too obvious.
At least half of all humor is a re-
sult of surprise-the shock effect
of a sudden incongruity. The se-
cret of being truly funny seems
to lie in finding humor in a situa-
tion where the comic qualities do
not lie at the surface.
Certainly there is much humor,
particularly of the black or ab-
surd variety, in the University
scene that the editors of Gargoyle
have not been able to dig UP.
