I’ve released another Carl and Jerry free story, this one from December 1958. Carl is sure that a local girl intends to steer him under the mistletoe at a Christmas party and–fate worse than death!–kiss him. Jerry concocts a plan to foil the kiss-crazy girl, but is foiled in turn by his cousin Pat, a true girl-geek who can sling electrons with the best of the boys! – Link (PDF).

What are the “Carl & Jerry – Adventure in electronics”? In the 50’s and 60’s John T. Frye, W9EGV / Popular Electronics published a series of fiction stories called “The Carl and Jerry stories” – In each story the pair acquired new skills, got their ham radio licenses and used their knowledge of electronics to get out of a jam or solve a mystery – Link.

    Once again, Carl’s thinly closeted homosexuality comes dangerously close to the surface.
