Tuesday Comic Strip Day.
When I showed the Captain Easy Sundays by Walt Scott, I mentioned that he must have left the strip somewhere in 1952, which is when he started his own Sunday only strip The Little People. According to Alan Holtz' American Newspper Comics Captain Easy was taken over by the regular daily artist Leslie Turned in October 1952, so that fits. Scott didn't do a daily version of The Little People, except on special occasions. Having already done a 'free' Christmas strip based on Dicken's A Christmas Carol for NEA in 1950, he did special Christmas and Easter strips for several years using his little characters as well. Here is the 1954 Easter strip.
