The Christmas Gargoyle, realizing,
perhaps, that war-time giving will be
somewhat curtailed this year, has at-
tempted to supply the deficiency in
its double-page drawing, which repre-
sents a huge Christmas tree, loaded
with gifts. Nearly every organiza-

tive to one portion of the campus that
may have wondered how the other
half lives-during the holidays.
Holiday festivities are commented
on throughout the entire magazine,
and even the mistletoe-is not forgot-
