Subject: [PW] Request article in Redbook circa 1945

A crossword puzzle maker asked me to explore a saying attributed to Newton, and I responded by creating the following entry for the Quote Investigator website:

Tact Is the Knack of Making a Point Without Making an Enemy https://quoteinvestigator.com/2018/07/18/tact/

Perhaps a W0mbat would be willing to help follow a lead. Apparently, the following instance of the expression appeared circa 1945 in "Redbook" which is part of the ProQuest Women's Magazine Archive:

Tact is the knack of making a point without making an enemy.
Howard W. Newton

The goal is to obtain a PDF and complete and accurate information for a citation. Thanks.
