4 -Thoughts & Afterthoughts

The Readers Write: 



Dear Readers: 

How the fetters have poured 
in with comments on "Crover 
and Bonnie" as the 4rhMOST 
popular strip for this magazine! 
You'll see some of the letters 
over there in THE READERS 
WRITE columns. Of the many 
letters we received, most of 
them vote for "Crover and 
Bonnie" to remain as a perma- 
nent feature in 4MOST with 
Dick Cofe, Kit Carter, and 
Eddie Bell. 

You readers who like "Can- 
did Charlie.'' "Dan I Flannel." 
and "Target and Targeteers" 
better than "Crover and Bon- 
nie" had better put pen to pa- 
per and let us know right 
away! 



To top it all, we may have 
to add another choice to our 
Jist for the 4thMOST spot' 
Remember in the Spring issue 
we introduced another new 
character "Lem the Grem " 
Letters are coming in now 
about Lem. If he's as popular 
right off as Crover and Bonnie 
Clump, the decision will be 
harder than ever. 

"Crover and Bonnie" are 
back in this issue. Read about 
their second adventure then 
send us your final vote. Re- 
member, you readers are the 
ones to decide. Are the Clumps 
here to stay, or do you vote for 
one of the other strips? 

Cordially yours, 

THE EDITORS 



Dear Editors: 

I have reasons lo believe that 
"Crover and Bonnie" should become 
I he fourth spot in 4MOST. My rea- 
sons are: 1) The plots are comical. 
2) The artwork of Jack Callahan is 
neat and attractive. 3) The person- 
alities of this couple are outstanding 
and enjoyable to the reader. 

I also like the Q's and A's and 
"Edison Bell", because one can gain 
quite a bit of useful and inventive 
knowledge from these two. 

One of your most devoted readers, 

Myron Lee Ncsler 

Ml. Vernon, Indiana 

Thank you for your carefully 
thought out comments on "Grower 
and Bonnie", Myron. 



Dear Editors: 

Your new comic strip "Crover and 
Bonnie" isn't, in my opinion, worth- 
while in such a good comic book. 
My choice for the number 4 spot is 
"Candid Charlie," which is by far 
the best strip [ ever read. "Dan'l 
Flannel" and "Targeteers" don't 
rank with "Candid Charlie." 

I would kneel, beg. and pray if 
that would do any good in deciding 
the number 4 comic story in favor 
of "Candid Charlie." 

Hypnotized by 4M0ST 
Richard Mcissner 
Stone Ridge, N. Y. 

Well, Richard, you had better be 
the captain of the "Candid Charlie" 
rooters, but you'll need more reader 
support. The "Candid Charlie" fans 
aren't writing as many letters as the 
"Crover and Bonnie" fans. 



Dear Editors: 

When I read my 4M0ST comic, I 
saw the request that we write you 
about "Grovvr and Bonnie." 

1 have found that it is a good 
story and «roiild like to read it more 
Often, I like 4MOST best of all 
comics, and with the addition of 
"Crover and Bonnie" it is better 
still. It is the story all of us possibly 
have been waiting for. It is very 



worthy of being the fourth spot and 
is very much belter than the others 
thai arc listed. 

Sincerely yours, 

Claretta Thosenfelth 
Muskegon, Michigan 

"Crover and Bonnie" seem to be 
"solid" in your opinion, eh, Claretta? 



Dear Editors: 

Your magazine is lops with mo 
and with all my friends. I don't be- 
lieve any other is as good. 

In reply to your open letter in the 
Winter issue, I would like 10 state 
that "Crover and Bonnie" are my 
choice to stay. This opinion is based 
on the fact that your other stories 
such as "Cadet," "Dick Cole," etc. 
are exciting and thoroughly interest- 
ing, but for a change "Crover ami 
Bonnie" are lml li interesting and 
funny, In regard to "Candid Charlie" 
and "Dan'l Flannel," I think they 
arc out. Most ol the tim.' they do 
the impossible and it seems very 
silly. 

A permanent reader. 
P. A. Salvatore 
Trenton. New Jersey 

fTe guess that P. A. Salvatore and 
Richard Mcissner could work up a 
good debate on "Candid Charlie" 
versus "Graver and Bonnie." 



Dear Editors: 

I think that the story of "GlOvef 
and Bonnie" would be a very 
one to publish in your book 4M0ST 
for it is on the funny side and puts 
more interest into the book. 

I think that it is worthy of the 
"four spot." "Candid Charlie" ami 
"Dan'l Flannel" and "Targ-ierrs" 
arc good but "Crover and Bonnie" 
is and will be more popular. 

Sincerely, 

Joyce Moore 

Poughkeepsie, New York 

Another vote for "Grover and Bon- 
nie!" And these are just a few of 
many more mtes tee have received 
for the Clump couple.

PARRY PORTER 
hunched down on the 
porch floor under the open 
window, listening with a 
sort of impish appreciation. 

"You don't love me," Paul 
charged, "or you'd marry 
me tomorrow." 

"I won't move in with 
your mother," Lorena said 
in a voice that sounded fray- 
ed. "And you know you 
wouldn't consider coming 
here. Find us a house, a 
room, anything, and I will 
marry you tomorrow." 

"Be reasonable. You just 
got through telling me those 
friends of your mother's, the 
Rices, are being evicted 
from their apartment and 
can't even find a hotel room. 
Where, for goodness' sake, 
am I going to find us a 
house? Now my mother . . ." 

"She has a big house and 
she's all alone. All right ! But 
we don't get on. Paul, 1 don't 
want to be unreasonable but 
we must have our own place 
to start with. Don't you 
see?" 

"You don't want to be un- 
reasonable. Good grief, do 
you think you're showing 
reason now? Face facts, 
1 Rena." 



"I am. It's all our lives, 
Paul. Do we want to wreck 
everything before we even 
start?" Her voice began to 
rise. 

"Do you want to marry 
me? That's what it boils 
down to. Just me, house or 
no house." 

"Oh, Paul. Paul, what 
will we do?" 

"I don't know, dear. We'd 
better break it up. If we say 
another word we'll really be 
quarreling. See you tonisiit. 
I'd better run."' And Paul, 
followed by his fiancee, 
swept through the doorway 
onto the porch before Garry 
had time to unscramble him- 
self. 

Paul kept on. going but 
Lorena, a slim, blonde sprite 
of a girl, fell on her brother 
with an enraged shriek. 
"You horrid, sneaking little 
brat. Just wait till I tejl Dad 
on you." 

Garry fended her off eas- 
ily. He was larger than she, 
in a lanky, gangling, fifteen- 
year-old way. "Look, Rena, 
calm down. You know you 
aren't going to tell on me. 
I've already found out that 
you're crazy to find a house 
and maybe. I can help you." 



Lorena "looked at him 
sharply. "You can't help 
me." 

"Oh, I wouldri't say that," 
he drawled. "You wanna 
bet?" 

"Will you?" 

He grinned. "What'll you 
give me, Sis ?" 

*Whatdoyouwant?" 

He shrugged. "What I 
really want is your room. I 
always have. It's twice as 
big as that dinky hole I'm 
expected to squeeze into. 
Just because you're older 
and a girl . . ." 

"Oh, stop crabbing, Garry. 
Find us a place and you'll 
have the room. Don't I wish 
you could." 

"You'd be surprised at 
what I can do." He walked 
away from her incredulous 
smile, slowly kicking at the 
walk as he sauntered along. 

He saw house after house, 
all of them stuffed with 
people who could be depend- 
ed on to cling to their homes 
like barnacles. He pictured 
a family hanging on desper- 
ately to their wooden "shelter 
while he deftly pried them 
loose with a pair of tongs. 
He savored their despairing 



screams with a satisfied 
smile. 

Then he abandoned this 
fancy for a more satisfac- 
tory vision. He could see 
himself arranging his pos- 
sessions in the big, sunny, 
corner room that would be 
his once his sister loosened 
her hold on it He decided 
just where he'd put his desk. 
There'd be room for his 
motion-picture projector and 
he could ask the gang up 
after school. 

All of a sudden he stop- 
ped, his mouth jarring open. 
Here was a. 'house whose 
windows were bare of cur- 
tains. Out in back he saw a 
man putting a box in a 
streamlined trailer. 

A woman, tapping down 
the walk, stopped beside 
him. She stared at the house 
with the same eagerness in 
her eyes that Garry had felt. 
"Can you tell me if that 
house is. for rent?" she asked 
quickly. 

"No, it isn't," he said def- 
initely. "My mother is just 
cleaning house." He con- 
trived to look angelic, lower- 
ing his impish eyes, and she 
believed him and sighed un- 
happily before she walked 
on. 

Garry drifted around the 
house, his hands in his pock- 
ets. "Hello," he said, his 
sunny smile lighting up his 
too angular face. 

"Hello there, young ieU 
low," a gray-haired man 
said, popping out of the 
trailer. "What can I do for 
you?" 



"That's a peach of a trail- 
er. You going very far in 
it ?" Garry held his breath. 

"Clear across the country, 
b'gosh," the o t h er said 
proudly. "Yep, Ma 'n' me, 
we aim to see this land of 
ours before we die." 

"Then are you selling 
your house ?" 

"Nope." 

"Renting it?" 

"Nope, just shutting it 
up." 

"Woutd you rent it?" 

"Nope, don't need the 
money and Ma don't want 
strangers tramping about in 
her parlor." 

Garry drew a deep breath, 
preparing for the biggest 
persuasive effort of his life. 
"You don't know me," he 
said rapidly, "and you don't 
know my sister. She's a good 
kid. She wants to be happy 
like you and your wife. But 
it looks like she won't be. 
Her life will probably be 

ruined." 

» 
"Why?" the gray-haired 
man asked, his mouth un- 
consciously falling open. 

"She's going to get mar- 
ried but she and her boy 
friend have turned the town 
upside down. They can't 
find a house. They're des- 
perate. They're starting to 
fight. It's making everybody 
in our house unhappy. Will 
you help us, please?" Garry 
pulled out all the stops in his 
flexible voice. "Let my sister 
come to see you' so you can 
decide if you'd consider rent- 
ing to her while you're 
away." 



The man hesitated. "I'm 
afraid Ma wouldn't like it. 
I don't know . . . 

The kitchen door banged 
open. "I've been listening to 
you," the plump woman who 
bustled out said crisply. 
"This boy is right in a way. 
I guess I have been selfish 
wanting to hug our home to 
ourselves when there's so 
many lacking a place to lay 
their heads. Bring your sis- 
ter over, boy. She can be 
proud she has a kind, 
thoughtful brother, a broth- 
er who isn't thinking of him- 
self first as so many people 
do." 

Garry tried to look noble 
as he expressed his .thanks. 
I guess I am pretty good, he 
told himself as he hurried 
home. Sis better be darn 
grateful to me. I wonder 
how quick I can kick her out 
of my room ? 

His sister was nearly as 
good as her word. She was 
married and settled in her 
new home in less than two 
weeks. 

Garry collected an arm- 
load of his belongings and 
started to take them in to 
the room he'd coveted so 
long. 

"What are you doing?" 
his mother demanded. 

"This is my room now . . . 
Mother," he said authorita- 
tively, "you know you 
always said, when Sis' mar- 
ried . . ." 

His mother interrupted. 
"I'm sorry, Garry, but I've 
rented it to the Rices. They 
move in tomorrow."
