Title

Article "Messenger Set For Release: Issue Based On Politics"

Description

This article reports on the political focus of the upcoming Messenger literary magazine. Contents of the magazine included a reprint of Dick Fitz's "Concerto Politico," a satirical piece titled "The Gullup Poll" by Dick Keith, cartoons by Bob Beasley titled "A Day in the Life of a Politician," "How to Win an Election" by Jim Hatchell, and the results of an actual poll taken by Dr. Ralph C. McDanel and other members of the history department. The article details the poll as asking students about "these 'Much A-talk About Nothing' campaigns on the national scene." The article finishes by addressing "the students who are not so busy with politics" and assuring them that a girl of the month will be chosen in the issue. The submissions mentioned are all by men, and, from this final paragraph, the article seems to be directed toward men as well.
