Indexer Notes

This cover minus the type was used as a promotional flyer for Sadie Hawkins events throughout the country from 1951 thru 1953. The Sadie Hawkins portrait is the "standard" portrait used whenever the history of Sadie Hawkins' Day is repeated. The Li'l Abner figure is from page 17, panel 2 of the story. Unable to find the source for the Daisy Mae figure in this issue.
