Not much else to do in Rhame. Elmer was married to Mae; as of 1940 they had two kids, Elsworth and Mabelline. I don't think the illustration reflects the genesis of the marriage or the children. It seems an odd thing to put on a book if you're a married man.

In case you can't make it out, it's a hillbilly farmer with a shotgun, and a weeping young lady. It was also the name of a movie in 1934, and possibly a catchphrase whose origins are too obscure. Guys would walk into a place and say "Where's Elmer?" and everyone would chuckle - that Chuck, he's a zippy feller, isn't he.

Then Chuck would drive the joke into the ground over and over, as he always did.
