Roughly 8¼ × 10¾"

Other artists: Klinger (first name unknown), T. Herzog and Daly (first name unknown; Sam de la Rosa?).

Some writers/artists listed above were in the issue's list of contributors but may not be credited by the piece. It's a bit perplexing as some of the artists I can't match to art.
