THE strongest resemblances be-
tween the two magazines are
in their sizes and the presence of
literary, theatrical, film and tele-

Even more important are the
cartoons, by which both magazines
are best known.

has been known and read best for

ACTUALLY, the Punch of today

This revolution began with the
naming of Malcom Muggeridge as
editor of the humor magazine
within the last few years.
Prior to the appointment of the
new editor, Punch appeared week-
ly with the same cover-a red and
cream colored drawing of a beak-
nosed, hump-backed little man in
the clothes of a jester, sitting at
his desk with a dog in hat and
They are surrounded by a mul-
titude of allegorical characters
floating up and down the sides
and across the top and bottom of
the cover, with the magazine's
name spelled out in misshapen
twigs at the top of the cover.
This was the traditidial cover
of Punch. It was changed on a
great occasion or a special issue
by altering the positions and the
actions of the figures.
Several years ago, the quarterly
seasional numbers of Punch took
on an entirely different, full-color
cover that depicted the little man
and his dog in an entirely different
setting doing somewhat different
Today's Punch covers are of the
latter type, even occasionally
omitting the man and his dog al-

the peripheries of towns; the
Lake Michigan shore beyond
Mackinac City is sparsely settled
- pleasantly so. Suddenly reality
hits like a slap in the face, nego-
tiate a curve and ... "LOW DOWN
PAYMENT!" "EASY TERMS!",
and there are three small, square
bungalows. They are completely
alike-except, one is pink, another
yellow, and the third, blue.
Beyond, Into Wilderness Park
and Waugoshance Point, there is
a return to the serenity of an emp-
ty, open area. Michigan simply
disappears - through a series of
marshes and sandy beaches -
Into the Lake. Gulls, terns, and
sandpipers congregate by the
hundreds, and the arrogant Great
Blue Heron can be seen perched
atop, a sapling barely strong
enough to hold him.
Inland from the point - In
the huge Red Pines a unique sight
can be had - a majestic living
picture of our national emblem,
the Bald Eagle. He perches high
on a dead branch - his dark
brown body silhouetted against the
sky and outlined by his brilliant
white crown and tail.
Further down the Lake Michi-
gan shore is Cross Village, the
"Indian" center of Northern Mich-
igan. "The Indians make these,"
say the wide-eyed, innocent nine-
year-olds behind the counter
getting practical training in the
art of business dealings. (The
baskets, when surreptitiously over-
turned usually say, "Made in Mex-
ico," or "Made in Japan.")
THE INDIAN is there, but the
average tourist does not see
him. He farms his land, and stays
away from the night spots of the
tourist. His Saturday nights con-
sist of a trip to the local tavern
where he meets his friends to play
pool or shuffleboard. His wife has
a baby in her arms and his teen-
age children dance to a few of the
two dozen polkas on the juke box.
Quantities of beer- are consumed

no concept of his antithesis, the

silent beaches. But the realization
af man's mechanistic encroach-

one that is felt by degrees. The
prick that begins the process is
seeing the mammoth Mackinac
bridge structure. The longest sin-

Upper and Lower Peninsulas of
