Herriman Saturday

On January 20 Herriman contributes a pair of sports cartoons. The first has John McGraw, fiery skipper of the New York Giants, vacationing in LA and holding court with doting fans. Second is a caricature of racer Barney Oldfield, who was contemplating racing his “Green Dragon” Peerless race car at a local event.

On the 21st we switch to politics, and Herriman once again comments on the offer LA Gas is making to sell the city its dilapidated plant.

On the 22nd Herriman is harnessed to contribute a cartoon for a well-disguised ad. The Examiner was touting their exchange ads (exchange = barter) in this new feature, but this was the only one I ever saw. If it continued it was without the cartoons.
