Maybe Alex Toth?

Above is the inside back cover from the 1950 DC release of Girls' Love Stories #4. I feel the page is a masterpiece of beautiful artwork, including those fabulous gray-tones (possibly realized using craftint paper). The impeccable lettering is pretty clearly the handiwork of the great Ben Oda but The Grand Comics Database has no clue as to the artist of the piece. My guess would be Alex Toth (who also drew one of the stories in that issue). Just beautiful!
