Photograph article dated August 21, 1964 partially reads, "He's an astronaut with one of the most important missions in the world. He's got an extrordinary [sic] zest for adventure and a special roving, soaring eye for women. That's Drift Marlo. Beginning yesterday, the Citizen-News will join its companion newspaper, the Valley Times, in presenting the daily activities of this slightly dashing, space-age cartoon figure. Tom Cooke, who long [sic] with Phil Evans of Woodland Hills has been guiding Marlo during the past years, regards the space man as thoroughly human. Marlo and his story should succeed in pinpointing the space age role in everyman's life, believes Cooke." Pictured is cartoonist Tom Cooke.
