If this were only the front page, it alone would be a great piece with the colorful image of Santa looking over the names of boys and girls in Portland Oregon as he smokes his pipe. Santa is seated on a short stool, a couple of mice sit amid the scattered books and notes and a calendar on the wall with a Dec. 5 date reminds Santa there are 20 more days (until Christmas). This is the cover of the Oregon Journal Features dated Sunday December 5, 1937. Inside the large format paper are articles and photos, a Poet’s Corner, small local advertising, a color comic section called; Life’s Like That by Fred Neher, a Juniors section and more. On the back is a color ad for the Union Oil Company’s 76 Gasoline and Triton Motor Oil. A fun bit of nostalgia to be read or the wonderful front page image by George Andrew Corley could be framed. The photos represent all of the pages of the newspaper.
