Tilt (C. Vern Dinges III) - Michigan State Spartan - January 27, 1953

This is a fairly ordinary college parody of Time magazine.  There are few drawings as obscure photos are generally used with fake articles written with a 1950s sense of humor.  The best items were the two-page "Pipley's Believe It, You Slob!" parody and Mona Lisa smoking a cigarette on page 31.  It was also interesting to see an early photo of Ernie Kovacs (as Percy Dovetonsils) who was identified as "Mario Paparella" - "a retired Sicilian dope peddler ... having an obscene international affair with the obese but naive Gretchen Schlutheimer of Austria ..."  I give credit to the editorial staff of Spartan for making this look like a national magazine.  [JAM 7/31/2020]
