Prescription for Happiness asks readers' advice in order to give cash prizes for the best letters. As of Love Diary 3 text, Ray Mann is "Miss Mann" (since she's publisher/editor Ray Hermann), but with the first Prescription in issue 4 and Mann's being pictured as a character, she becomes a he for the rest of the run.
Until I saw it, the Tom Mix Western 9 story "Mistaken Identity" seemed, from the title, the best match in the timeframe for the idol of outlaws description. But (this issue was also put online since my post) that story turns out not to be about Mix's being an idol of outlaws and it's not in Woolfolk's style.
