Photograph article dated December 3, 1963 partially reads, "Marty Martz, 12, who lives in the beautiful rolling hills at the eastern end of the Valley, won $25 for his Christmas shopping by just writing a caption for picture. The photo showed some drip standing in the middle of a swimming pool while fully clothed and working at a typewriter. Because I was that drip, I got to present the check. For his caption, Marty wrote, 'Dear Noah: I've decided to reconsider your offer!'" Pictured are winner, Marty Martz and Valley Times writer, Larry Paulson.
