A fanzine published by Betsy Curtis and Ed Curtis and edited by Betsy Curtis.

It called itself "A periodical of cutlure and reefinement", was edited "at their editorial offices, mimeograph salon, studio, dishwashing and ironing parlors, nursery and residence". It was the first fanzine to enthuse over the Pogo comic strip, which then became somewhat of a fad in fandom.
