March 1, 1974
No issue number listed
72 pages, 3 sections ? Cover by Bob Conway
Includes Beautiful Balloons #17 by Don and Maggie Thompson
Dates returned, but the issue number vanished.
And it wasn’t a leap year, but TBG appears to have skipped the entire month of February with this issue. That results in 1974 having only 22 issues ? two fewer than 24, since it wasn’t truly biweekly at this point but rather twice a month. Perhaps because of all the saved-up ads, this was the largest issue to this point.
