Cool to Yule Myth.i, Sets Us Straight on Santa Claus Jazz

Clobbers Starry-Eyed Illusions,
Shows St. Nick Is Not American
By DON ADDIS
Alligator Cartoonist
In keeping with the Florida tradition of clobbering our most
sacred and starry-eyed childhood illusions about American insti institutions,
tutions, institutions, like George Washington and the Boy Scouts, I feel it my
dirty to expose the misleading myths surrounding Santa Claus.
If yotkve been a free thinker for very long, youve probably
been suspicious of the old gent before. Theres something fishy
about the way he manages to show up in 10,000 department stores
at once, visits every home in the whole world in one globe-girdling
evening, and gains entrance to chimney-less houses and mud huts
the world over.
Questions like these touch on minor points only. The average
student stqps asking them anyhow when it becomes apparent that
the answers will lead to undesirable conclusions possibly even
the truth. We wouldnt want that. {
So lets avoid this touchy area and get to the meat of the issue.
A glance at Santas past should serve to shatter a few rose-colored
glasses. First, Santa Claus is not a red-blooded American!

Around the fourth century it was his practice to toss bags of
gold through deserving windows, and by chance one such bag
flew several cubits off course, landing in an old sock hung by thb

and gingerly places all his gifts in stockings. )
Another deflating fact is that the three-ball sign used today
by the most unsavory of hock shops came from Santa Claus. Wheh
he was depicted as a rollicking figure carrying three bulging bagp
of gold on his back, bankers in Lombardy, taking Nick as theilri
patron, took the symbol as well.
About this time the DAR representative should get to her feet

True also, Santa as we see him today was invented by

While this hospitality and friend friendship

There is no reason why a student
from another land need depend on the
hospitality of people he does not know
so that his holidays will not be lonely.
The number of foreign students on
this campus is so small in comparison
with the total number of students, that
every foreign student who can not go

many invitations from fellow students
to share the merriment and warmth of
our Christmas season. And these invi invitations

DECK THE HALLS
When you think of Christmas gifts you naturally think of
Marlboro cigarettes, leading seller in flip-top box in all fifty
states-and if we annex Wales, in all fifty-oneand if we annex
Lapland, in all fifty-two. (This talk about annexing Wales and
Lapland is, incidentally, not just idle speculation. Great Britain
wants to trade Wales to the United States for a desert. Great
Britain needs a desert desperately on account of the tourist
trade. Tourists are always coming up to the Prime Minister or
the Lord Privy Seal, or the Thane of Glamis, or like that and
saying, Im not knocking your country, mind you. Its very
quaint and picturesque, etc., what with Buckingham Palace and
Bovril and Scotland Yard, etc., but wheres your desert??
- \
Before I forget, let me point out that Scotland Yard, Britain!
plain-clothes police branch, was named after Wally Scotland and
Fred Yard who invented plain clothes. The American plain plainclothes
clothes plainclothes force is called the F. 8.1. after Frank B. Inchcliff, who
invented fingerprints. Before Mr. Inchcliffs invention, every everybodys
bodys everybodys fingers were absolutely glassy smooth. This, as you may
0 imagine, played hob with the identification of newborn babiee
in hospitals. From 1791 until 1904 no American parent ever
brought home the right baby from the hospital. This later be became
came became known as the Black Tom Explosion.
(But I digress. England, I was saying, wants to trade Wales
for a desert. Sweden wants to trade Lapland for Frank B.
Inchcliff. The reason is that Swedes to this day still dont have
fingerprints. As a result, identification of babies in Swedish
hospitals is so haphazard that Swedes flatly refuse to bring
their babies home. There are, at present, nearly a half-billion
unclaimed babies in Swedish hospitalssome of them well over
eighty years old.)
But I digress. Marlboro is, of course, an ideal Christmas gift
for your friends and loved ones who enjoy filter cigarettes. If,
on the other hand, your friends and loved ones like mildness
but dont like filters, then you cant go wrong with a carton of
Philip Morris. If your friends and loved e#?s like a subtly
mentholated cigarette that combines refreshing taste with high
filtration, then buy a carton of Alpinee. (Alpines, incidentally,
are named after the late Albert G. Pine. A1 Pine worked all hie
life to invent a cigarette that would combine light menthol and
high filtration, but alas he never succeeded. As by-products of
his research he did manage to invent the atom, the gooseneck
lamp and the cocker spaniel, but the lightly mentholated high
filtration cigarette, alas, never. Now this dream is realized,
and what could be more fitting than to pay tribute to this gal gallant
lant gallant man by calling this cigarette Alpine?) e i m
