Christmas carols

When the pages were lined up in the 8-page Christmas carol pullout of the December 1961 Texas Ranger, the initials in the corners spelled out inappropriate words.¬† (Click images to enlarge.) This was the last hurrah for a staff fired when Kerry O’Quinn had slipped a bad word into a November illustration. I have heard that Xanthia Hare was a pen name for Harriet Schoch. Brother Lowe could be Jack or Hugh. The others are Dave Crossley and Lieuen Adkins. Students for Direct Action, not an official campus organization, did not have “memberships.”
Dr. Leon McNealy (Huey McNealy) says Lieuen Adkins wrote the parody “White Nation.”
