Cracked #37, 3 of 3

The last of three parts of Cracked #37, the July 1964 issue. The first two examples are here and here.

Art by Bill Ward. For some reason he signed some of his Cracked work “McCartney”. Maybe he was under exclusive contract somewhere?
The contents page says of this (also by Bill Ward):

Many towns in the United States have become one-newspaper towns because of the merging of two or three newspapers...CRACKED shows you how this will effect the comic strips of the near future. Maybe then ""Dick Tracy, ""Kerry Drake, and ""Rip Kirby will be sharing the same police car and case!

Oh, 1964, you're so quaint. Try one-newspaper states now.
The contents page text of this piece by John Severin:

Put on your walking shoes, grab your camera, and take a tour of CRACKED's exciting, new million dollar world's fair... the buildings are big and so are the laughs!
