Bill Ward's cartoons wound up on the covers or the first interior page of many of the old Humorama publications. Here we see an example from the first interior page of Jest (Sept. 1956). This is a maintenance spanking, not very common compared with the disciplinary or fun spankings that predominated in the Humorama line. It's fairly well done, although when a standing position is used we like to see both feet on the floor.

06/03/2011 Update: From Mike's collection we have the second printing of the cartoon in the May 1961 issue of Romp (there was a third printing in the February 1969 issue of Gaze). The joke is unchanged, but now we can see a lot more detail and better appreciate Ward's high-sheen effects. He certainly drew an extremely tight-fitting slip and well-defined buttocks! [Note: this update was later modified in Sept. 2013 when more information became available.]
