Cartoonist H.T. Webster may be best known for his decades of chronicling the adventures of the “Timid Soul” Casper Milquetoast, but he repeatedly chronicled in cartoon form the foibles of players of card games, most notably poker and bridge. Here we have fifty of his poker cartoons, matched with some light writings on the game by pulp writer George F. Worts and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and Algonquin Round Table member Marc Connelly, a guide to the rules by game expert R. F. Foster, and a foreword by noted Chicago chronicler George Ade.

From the pages of The (Catholic) Advocate, the newspaper of the Archdiocese of Newark and the Diocese of Paterson, New Jersey, come these cartoons giving a gently joyous look at the people of the church – the nuns, priests, and parishioners who give life to the institution and bring the institution into their lives. Most of the cartoons are drawn by National Cartoonist Society award-winner Frank Evers (Father, Dear Father!; Jeremiah the Friar.) This collection originally published in a small edition in 1955, Includes cartoons with spot color. (The series would continue in the paper until 1962.)
