Gargoyle Satire Of Mademoiselle
WillSoon Appear On Campus

This isn't just "To Amuse Our-
selves"-it's a parody, Gargoyle's an-
nual, which will be released soon, this
time fashioned after MADEMOI-
SELLE, national women's magazine.
Recalling their LIFE issue put out
last spring, Gargoyle has ventured
once again into the realm of satire
and has ferreted out all of the points
that give MADEMOISELLE its indi-
viduality, to include them nthe new
issue in a manner heretofore un-
known and unpublished.
Complete in its parody e even to
page layouts and type faces, the new
Gargoyle will contain all of the fea-
tures for which the other magazine
is known. MADEMOISELLE's ad-
vertising staff never dreamed up such
ads for dealers in er-uh-well, unmen-
tionables, and the full-page fashion
layouts which will appear in this
issue are such that they might have
appeared in MADEMOISELLE, but
For the first time in college maga-
zine history, too, Gargoyle has se-
cured as its guest editors three of
the editors of the magazine they are
satirizing. Articles have been writ-
ten by Betsy Talbot Blackwell, edi-
tor-in-chief of MADEMOISELLE; by
Jean Condit, nationally known fash-
ion authority, and by Geri Trotta,

Fiscal Capacity
Of Local Units
There is a great need for an im-
proved index of local fiscal capacity
because of the increased importance
of state and federal aid,' Marvin A.
Bacon, research associate in the Bu-
reau of Govrnment, declares in the
governments! study, "Income as an
Index of the Fiscal Capacity of Mich-
igan Counties," released yesterday.
,Since federal and state aid is made
on the basis 'of fiscal capacity of the
counties, the importance of measuring
this capacity cannot be overestimated.
The present method is assessed valu-
Owing to the weaknesses of this
measure, Bacon suggests the use of
income of individuals. If income is
employed, it appears preferable to'
use supernumerary income - the
amount available in each county in
excess of living essentials. °
An analysis of income received in
Michigan in 1938 showed pronounced
variations in its geographical distri-
bution acording to Bacon. Approxi-
mately one-half of the total state in-
come was received in Wayne 'County.
The other ten urban counties re-
ceived one-fourth while the remain-
ing one-fourth was shared by 72
Non-agricultural private production
was the most important source of in-
come in the urban counties. Income
from government, which comprised
17 per cent of the total throughout
the state, represented one-third in
the mineral counties and one-fourth
of the total ii te forest counties.

Because of the expense involved in
necessary innovations, Gargoyle is
forced, for this one issue, to raise the
price of the magazine to 25 cents.
However, year's subscriptions will be
honored at no extra cost.
Primary among the reasons for
the price change is a natural color
kodachrome plate to grace the cover
page, a la MADEMOISELLE. To the
knowledge of the editors this is the
first time that such a plan has been
undertaken by any college magazine
in the country.

Study Series
On" Pla-cemnent
Substituting three series of meet-
ings instead of their usual five-day
session, the Bureau of Appointments
and Occupational Information will
open the first series Jan. 16 and 17,
with other meetings scheduled for
March and May, of an entire pro-
gram under the general head, "Why
People Do Not Get Jobs."
The January meetings will deal
with the general school guidance
program, the supply and demand of
teachers and camp counsellor place-
ment for the summer. It will invite
special interest from school superin-
tendents, teachers in service, those
interested in teaching and those in-
terested in summer educational
counselling work.
State institutions have been mak-
ing a cooperative study of supply
and demand for teachers, and charts
are being prepared showing where
the demand exceeds ,the supply and
where there is an under-supply.
These charts will be available to
all students interested in teaching as
well as to people out in the field. It
is hoped high school students will be
especially interested, since many of
theim have said that by the time
they received this information it is
too late for them /to change their
The January meeting will enable
students who have enrolled in over-
crowded fields to change their ma-
jors in many cases, and will also
serve to take care of those interested
in summer work, for calls are already
being received by the Bureau.

Revelli Opens
Fand Mee .
The first organization of its kind
in the history of University music, a
"Pops" band, intended to pay special
atteintion to popular and light con-
cert music, will become a reality at
4:30 p.m. today in Morris Hall when
Prof. William D. Revelli, conductor
of all the University bands, opens the
first meeting of this new instruynental
Fashioned after the popular Boston
"Pops" Qrchestra, the band will large-
ly replace the Regimental Band of
former years, though the change will
mean a greatly extended program
of activity for the year.
Biggest of these extensions will be
a series of outdoor concerts in the
spring, at which special programs of
popular and light concert music will
be piesented, as 'well as the usual
appearances at home basketball
games and other campus events.
Meeting from 4:30 to 6 p.m. every
Wednesday and Friday, the band. ll
also serve as a feeder for the Cn-
cert Band, andprospective members
of that organization can receive val-
uable training in the Pops sand, Pro-
fessor Revelli announced.
All musicians on campus are urged
to attend the organization meeting
today, he sta'ted
"I cannot Aver-emphasize the fact
that ability is a minor concern," Pro-
fessor Revelli added. "Although we
will appear in public from time to
time, the Pops Band is still a means
of giving training to those who would
like to improve their ability. I hope
no student will stay away because he
feels he lacks ability."

"Jean-Baptiste Lully et l'Opera
Francais au XVIIe Siecle" will be the
subject of a talk, illustrated by phon-
ograph selections, to be given at 4:15

chased from the secretary of the De-
partment of Romance Languages.
Although an Italian of Florentine
origin, bully became the best known
French composer of the 17th century
and was the real founder of the great
Paris opera. Starting from nothing,
he forged, through the power of his
personality, the best known group of
musicians in Europe.
Diversified talents, coupled with an
exceptional capacity for hard work,
gave Lully fame as a virtuoso, com-
poser, director and ballet master.
Through, his successes he early be-
came, and always remained, a favorite
of Louis XIV,'who preferred Lully's
work to that of any other composer.
Movies To Be Shown
