Mad #63 (Albert Feldstein) - Special April Showers Issue - June 1961

Bob Margolin wrote Specialized Breakfast Foods and Archie De Silva wrote Sports Typography.  Neither ever wrote for Mad again.  In the 1960s, Feldstein rarely accepted unsolicited articles.  As a result, Mad had a consistent quality and sameness.  The humor was excellent, but there were few surprises. [MADlog #13]
