Mascots

 

Inspired by the ubiquitous vultures that circled the newly cleared land the FuTUre staff, “wracked its small, collective brain to find a mascot that would capture the imagination of the student body… A powerful, high-flying bird… A VULTURE… Don’t laugh. Don’t hiss. Think about it.” The strong contingent supporting Vincent aggravated administrators but editorials and cartoons kept Vince before the student body.

 

 

This cartoon is from the November 1969 FuTUre.
