Dawson Epic,
Do you remember the recent series
of unique classified ads which re-
quested the return of a gentleman's
reversible, and do you remember
wondering at the time about the ad-
Behind the story of the coat, be-
hind the endless search and the de-
velopments thereof-in short, behind
the newsprint lies the epic of a per-
sonality, of a BMOC, one W. Dawson,
called "Buck," a member of the
Michiganensian hierarchy.
Because of the interest aroused, it
has been thought wise to immortal-
ize the tale of this character for pos-
terity, and so it has been preserved
in black and white for coming gen-
erations to read and ponder on. But
the significant fact about all this is
that this very generation has been
selected to receive the honor of first
reading the tale of Dawson, under '
the stock but significant head of
Preposterous Persons, in the January
issue of Gargoyle, which is coming
out-believe it or not-tomorrow.

here yesterday that the eternal good-
ness of God will insure final victory
of Christian priciples.
Speaking at 2 p.m. yesterday in the
Rackham Lecture Hall before a gen-
eral session of the Pastors' Conven-
tion, Prof. Walter M. Horton of the
Oberlin College theology department
declared that our forces on both the
religious and battle fronts of the
world have suffered serious setbacks.
He pointed to the fact that religion
has been repudiated in many coun-
tries which were formerly Christian-
and to MacArthur's delaying action in
the Philippines as the foundation for
his stand.
"Even in the face of these apparent
defeats, God's glory still persists,"
Professor Horton continued. He con-
cluded with the statement that
Christians have a vast reservoir of
potential power which they can use
to defeat the forces aligned against
them. "Our enemies have none of
the vast power which we possess,"
he said, "they are, in the words of
Bismark, 'attempting to sit on a
