Historical characters that are famed
in song and story will be placed be-
fore the reading public in a new light
when the "Historical Xunmber" of the
Gargoyle is placed on sale today. The
exploits that have marked the paths
of every famous general to the low-
est janitor of ancient fame are exem-
plified in a startling manner.
The cover of the issue is a pre-
historic reproduction of one of the
earliest forms of ancient man engaged
in the process of carving dry-sound-
ing words on a rock. It is the work
of Halsey Davidson, '25.
"The Slip-Shod History of God's
Land," a more or less accurate out-
line of the historical development of
about everything that ever happened,
furnishes one of the main articles that
grace the issue. So wide is the arti-
cle in its secfo that it delves into the
origin of mankind and proceeds from
there to the futuristic end that will
Igreet all things.
Of like nature is the account of
the crossing of the Delaware by a
George Washington and the detailed
life of one Abraham Lincoln, a char-
acter who rose to great heights
through his -consistent studies of
mathematical and engineering feats.

energy that led him to his pinnacles
of fame are portrayed with a modern
touch that lends the characteristic
Gargoyle atmosphere to the article.
A group of poems of varied nature
that in general carry out the histori-
cal idea furnish a further phase of
the number, together with an assorted
lot of art work and articles.
