Continuing in my unwitting effort to reproduce every one of Gene Patrick's Passing Scene comic strips, here are two more from December 1965.
In the first one (below), which ran on December 4, 1965, we see that Lorain County has experienced its first snowfall of the season, and that a big local talent show was still part of the Mary Lee Tucker charitable effort. (I wonder when they stopped doing that? The good folks at the Morning Journal should really consider reviving it.)
In the second strip, which ran two weeks later on December 18, 1965 we get a caricature of then-Mayor Woody Mathna (who helped settle the strike by the Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 1034 against the Employees Transit Lines Inc.), and another nod to the Mary Lee Tucker program (featuring a comical drunk).
