Wing-Clipped Stork Flys To View
Cars, Golf Course, Vey Hospital

CHICAGO-()-The books say
if you clip a stork's wings short
he can't fly.
But the stork at suburban
Brookfleld Zoo either hadn't read
the books or needed a barber. He
flew-for the first time in five
years.
Ralph Graham, acting zoo direc-
tor, rallied four guards and keep-
ers for the chase.
They sighted him viewing late
model cars at a parking lot. His
next stop was a green at the Riv-
2rside Country Club golf course.
Next he surveyed the grounds of
Vaughn Veteran's Hospital.

For six hours the chasers toured
the suburbs in his wake. They
gave up at nightfall when he hid
in a cemetary. You couldn't tell
him from a tombstone in the dark-
ness, Graham explained.
Today the men came to work
early, prepared to resume the
search.
There, in the zoo yard, was the
stork.
Graham couldn't explain why
the bird came back but said:
"We aren't taking any more
chances. Before he got his break-
fast his wings were clipped very,
very short."

The Gargoyle, far from being a
new kind of mouthwash, is alleged
by its editors to be the best hum-
or magazine on the Michigan
campus.
Thus far' no one has disputed
that statement, perhaps because
of the fact that it is the pnly
facetious publication, excluding
The Daily, on the premises.
The previously-mentioned ed-
itors consist of one Thom Carel
Strope, known locally as the
Officers Call
For Tryouts
Student officers of the Michigan
Union today sent out a call for
tryouts to assist in operating the
University's refuge for the har-
rassed male.
Student tryouts on the staff of
the Union will gain valuable ex-
perience in the problems of oper-
ating a large organization which
combines all the features of a
hotel, restaurant, and recreation
spot. After a tryout period, stu-
dents have a chance for appoint-
ment to one of the administrative
posts on the Union staff.
The services of the Michigan
Union for all men students are
many and varied, including ori-
entation work, smokers, a book
exchange, dances, pep rallies, and
numerous other activities.
Union officers have also an-
nounced that male students may
pick up membership cards any
week-day between the hours of 3
and 5 p.m.

deacon; Douglas Parker, anoth-
er character with the outstand-
ing nickname of Doug; and sun-
dry other human specimens, all
of whom spend the major por-
tion of their waking hours in-
dulging in sparkling repartee
concerning the finer things of
life.
All of these intellectual doings
take place in the Student Publica-
tion Building. In finding the of-
fice of the Gargoyle, the unin-
formed freshman might be led
astray by various signs pointing
significantly up an impressive
staircase. However, in small print
at the bottom, these signs point
out only the insignificant fact that
the stronghold of The Daily is
upstairs.
In spite of the air of reluctant
optimism rampant among the
members of its staff, the Gargoyle
manages to publish six issues dur-
ing the school year, most of the
copies of which are purchased by
students heading toward lectures
in which the seating arrangements
are not conducive to restful slum
ber. Remember that name, the
Gargoyle.
