The Children's Page, 1925

I found this drawing on The Children's Page of the August 2, 1925 Commercial Appeal. If this is the Eudora Welty, she would have been 16 at the time.

A weird coming together of the native talent and inbred evil of the South.

I'd been looking for a Commercial Appeal editorial putdown of H.L. Mencken (remembered by Richard Wright), which was probably a response to a Mencken putdown of William Jennings Bryan which was probably a response to a Bryan putdown of Charles Darwin. I'm still looking for the editorial.
