- On Our Cover: To my Valentine: This drummer girl dressed all in red stands on the green, grassy verge of a country lane.

A robin sits on the sign board. The nine-inch, stand-up card was printed in Germany and presented to country schoolteacher Miss Cora Smith in the first or second decade of the century. Original in the New Bay Times collection.
