I can't find info on any story titled "The Gay Bird" at Grand Comics Database, but if there are any other stories, try entering them in the search window, but be sure to select 'Story Title'.

I tried some of the other story titles as you suggested, no luck though.

Huh.
This would be a tough one to track down considering the number of different titles in the Archie Family.

Not sure what issue that is but it may be between issues #40 - 90. I have a few scans and Betty's hair was drawn differently from issue 90 onward. Archie was drawn much differently before #40 so at least you have a range of books but as Mr_Sigs pointed out, there are other titles too.

Look through the ads in the book and see if you can find a date on any of them.

No updates??? I can't find a darn thing. @harmomicaman could you please show us more of the book or find some dates as Steve Ricketts suggested?

All of the core characters go back to the beginning. It would be easier to nail down the issue if there was a minor character appearance.

If you have the book, what are some of the other stories titled? Are their any ads in the book with dates, phone numbers or addresses?

Any panels with Veronica and Betty in bed together, wearing nighties? (believe it or not, that would be a clue)

Here is something useful I found in the comic.

A statement of owneship from 1952. Other story tiles are: "Foul Play", "Hot Stuff", "Play Through The Nose", "Whoa Is me", and "May The Pest Man Win".

There is currently a coverless copy of Archie Comics #58 listed on Ebay. It doesn't match the one I have. I think we're getting closer though. Sometime in summer/ autumn 1952.

I checked my copy of #58 and that's definitely not it. You can also check off 60, 62, 63, 64, 70, and 71.
