William Von RIegen in College Humor, September 1937

Two cartoons by William Von Riegen appear in the College Humor number from September 1937. Each cartoon has a woman speaker. The first young woman is insecure in her golfing skills, but she still manages to drive a double entendre:
"Do you really like my form?"
William Von Riegen,
 College Humor, Vol. 6, No. 1, September 1937

The second young woman is more confident in her skills:
"Plaza 6-8881."
William Von Riegen,
 College Humor, Vol. 6, No. 1, September 1937

Note:  This isn't my copy of College Humor. It is a part of the Steven Boss humor magazine collection at Columbia University. You too can read it and even photograph it in the Rare Book & Manuscript Library. The library staff doesn't even make you wear gloves. Karen Green, Curator for Comics and Cartoons at Columbia, can guide you to any and all of the 5,600 humor magazines in the collection. It shouldn't take you more than a few years to get through them.
