Another sign of how things have changed. These days there are a lot of people who believe that you shouldn't spank your child. The editors would probably not be brave enough today to try this kind of a gag - some people might not like the fact that they're promoting spanking...
There is a 4-page gap between pages 7 and 8 of this story. Page 7 is on the left, followed by a full-page ad for the Popsicle Pan-American contest [entrants must correctly identify the three countries for the flags shown and design their own flag; 3 grand prize winners would receive an American Motors AMX and a week for 2 in San Antonio via American Airlines]. The next two pages are the Archie Club News feature with an offer to join the Archie club. On the back of the 2nd page of Archie Club News is an ad for Cheerios. Following that, the story continues. The ad is indexed after the story because the story is continuous and not a multi-part story.
It is assumed that the blizzard described in the article took place in 1968, although the indexer was unable to find proof of this. This feature appears between two ads (one on the front of the left page and one on the back of the right page), right in the middle of the "Fountain of Goof" story. Bottom half of the second page was the usual offer to join the Archie Club, which cost 20 cents at the time.
The regular monthly feature showcasing winning articles from Archie Club members. This month's winners are Emerick Lamontagne from Honolulu [$5 First Prize for his article on the island of Oahu]; Diana Sheffler from Roanoke, VA [$3 Second Prize for her article on a week-long blizzard in Roanoke]; Karen Powell from Clovis, CA [$2 Third Prize for her article on a red-headed goose that her family had cared for]; Nancy Coldwell from Fairfax, VA [$1 Fourth Prize for her article on a case of mistaken identity - her twin sister was sick, so she was taking her sister's books to the classroom, but the teacher thought she was her sister] and Matthew Reardon of Sterling, MA [$1 5th Prize for his article about when his hamster escaped].
