The Lampoon.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The editorial column is the most entertaining portion of number 7 of the Lampoon. The leader is an amusing apology for a parody on a well known "Journal of Society"; the second, a sarcastic reference to Life's somewhat illogical war attitude. As a whole, however, the issue is but mediocre. A take-off on "Rupert of Hentzau" in its title promises well, but is overdone and rather hard to wade through. The usual "Lispings of Little Lew" also do not come up to expectations.

The drawings, which fill more space than usual, are well executed, but with the exception of two small ones, are not effective. The conception of the centre page is a bit worn, and the drawing of "Laocoon; Restored by an Artist of the Realistic School," seems mildly reminiscent. "O Tempora! O Mores!" in illustration of the old Tree exercises and what the artist expects of the Statue exercises, is, on the other hand, both cleverly conceived and well drawn, and "Nova Botanica Harvardiensis" has originality as a merit.
