(we called them "funnies.") They were once a weekly feature in the Trenton Sunday Times Advertiser. How I remember "Prince Valiant," "Nancy," "The Katzenjammer Kids," "Captain Easy," and other long gone classics from the first half of the 20th century. I remember laying under our old radio in the Glover dining room, tuning in to WOR and listening to Uncle Don" as he read those comics from the Sunday New York Daily News." I followed along avidly, enthralled by the fact that Uncle Don was reading the very same comics as I followed along with him. My sister Dorothy was a "Dixie Dugan," "Etta Kett," and "Tillie the Toiler fan. She was also a collector of that weekly paper doll feature, carefully cutting out the dress and Tillie, at the same time wishing that mom and dad had the money to buy a bathing suit or dress like Tillie was wearing. But there was that depression thing, and the Glover family was poor even before the financial tragedy hit. Ahh, the memories!
