Click, Part 18

These were some of the cartoons published in Click magazine's first annual in 1940.

This one was by Bandel Linn
E. McNerney
Irving Roir
The signature looks like it says James Trembath, who was one of the Captain Marvel artists from around that time.
Dorothy McKay
This signature says “Haljay”, so it was probably either a collaboration or something by someone whose name was “Hal J.”

DAM, 2 of 2

Here's the second half of the University of Syracuse's Mad homage.

Parody of the Tennessee Williams/Elia Kazan film Baby Doll, or maybe a parody of Mad's parody of Baby Doll.
The main character in the movie is named Archie, get it?
Parody of Mary Noble, Backstage Wife, which is better known for Bob and Ray parodies of it.
The characters in the middle panel are taken directly from a Don Martin comic.
