Kessel To . Take Second Garg Term
David Kessel is probably the only '
ampus has-been Who is also a
Anticipating his second year as
anaging editor of the campus ~.
unor magazine, Gargoyle, Kessel f°
isists his platform is "no third

"If anybody wants to know why
I'm holding down the position
again next year," he said, "you
can say that I'm just a glory hog."
A graduate of Massachusetts In-
stitute of Technology, Kessel re-
ceived his master's degree in chem-
istry from the University last year
and Is presently at work on. his
doctorate in biochemistry.
"As a matter of fact," he con-
fided "next year's editorial staff
is composed entirely of graduates,
so we're trying to get an office in
the Rackhar Buiding."
Kessel Discourses On Michigan
NRlaxing in the cluttered atmos-
phere of the Garg office on the
first floor of the Publications
Building, Kessel discoursed on his
past and future, Michigan tradi-
tions and philosophy in true Cam-
pus Leader fashion.
It seems unusual for an incipient
scientist to also be editor of a
humor magazine, but one of his
filends 'explains it this way: "It's
an attempt to sublimate impulses
which cannot be successfully sub-
linated by science."
Kessel admitted that he worked
on the MIT Voodoo in several
capacities. "I was the only man
ontl the staff with a beer can
opener. We didn't do much there,
but, it certainly' was amusing."
xHis favorite Boston hoax in-
volved a group of MIT men, him-
self included, dressing up in orien-
tal costumes and parading through
lobbies of the more prominent
hotels into a waiting limousine
owned by a friend. He recalled
dreamily, "We only got arrested
Has Become Respectable
"But since I've gotten here, I'Ve
become respectable," he said.
Looking rather likea gargoyle
himself, Kessel explained how he
became a member of the maga-
zine's staff. "Pete Becker, who was
then editor of Generation, infil-
trated me."
"My main objective," he said,
(has been to ease out the Russian
and Slavic influences and replace
the tendency toward obscurity with
one toward obscenity. This is to
be differentiated from The Daily,
which tends toward absurdity.'
His apartment has been com-
pared by a prominent campus
writer to a large toy shop. He col-
lects records and builds amplifiers
and also admits to extensive ex-
perience in wiretapping. "I know
details of Harlan Hatcher's per-
sonal life which cannot be. made
public at this time."
The friend interposed "He has
the most outstanding collection of
No-Fi records in the country."
"That's because I discovered
some years back that I couldn't
hear and decided to save money,"
Kessel retorted.
No-Fi is achieved by disconnect-
ing the speaker from the rest of
the equipment and dropping it out
the window, according to Kessl.
"Well, it does solve the ear strain
But the friend added "In accord
with the current trend to logical
positivism, you might call him an
illogical negativist."'
Kessel thinks that a humor
magazine, surprisingly enough,
should be humorous. Garg has
features, articles, satires and orig-
inal material "whenever possible."
"Our jokes," he admitted, "are
y special arrangement. with the
rchives of the Harvard Lam-
One of Kessel's trademarks is his
grey tweed hat. The prototype of
this rather unusual chapeau cme
from Rogers Peet in Boston. "It's
useful for ironing out fluctuations
in haircut prices," he said. "I get
