Colored Cover by Neely to Be One of Issue’s Big Features
28 PAGES THIS MONTH
No Advance in Price Although Size Enlarged—Copy From , All Colleges
The “aviation” number of the “Wampus,” U. S. C.’s wild campus kitten, will appear next Wednesday, in the university halls. With 28 pages, the same number as last month’s issue, many good articles, and a large variety of cuts and cartoons, the “Wampus” will appear greater than ever and at the same paltry price of 397,642 yen, or 15c in American money.
A new cover, in three colors, drawn by Artist Neely, will be a feature of the book. Three artists have been busily at work and many artistic cuts as well as humorous cartoons will ap-< pear. Editor Miller, who has more than lived up to his promises in the past to put out a high class magazine, has secured excellent copy from all of U. S. C.’s colleges, of which Liberal Arts, Law and Dental have contributed most.
The “aviation” edition of the “Wampus” will be its fourth and greatest number. Growing from a lowly eight-page kitten to a full-grown 28-page howling back-yard cat, in three isssues, the “Waampus” has accomplished wonders. Next Wednesday, in its fourth edition, the “Wampus” will be no farther grown in size, but its quality will be greatly increased.
