The stories are reprints of stories first published elsewhere.
There are at least ten different writers and illustrators.
The stories dominate the 96 pages with only a rare filler puzzle page or a Tarzan's Son story.
There are no advertisements.

The price listed on the first four Murrays was ninety cents.
Issues #5 through #17 were priced at ninety-five cents.
After number seventeen, the price became ninety-nine cents.
