Oakland Tribune – Feb 16, 1930

In the same Aunt Elsie section of the paper on the 16th, was this poem:

VALENTINE DAY

Old St. Valentine is here,
With his signs of happy cheer;
Valentines with colors bright,
Lacy frills so fine and light;
Cupid’s darting here and there,
Little doves so white and fair,
Make a valentine complete,
With an envelope so neat.

By Winifred Lewis, age 12
