A trio with the surnames of Jones, Valentine, and Smith is better known by their first names as who?

We'll reveal all next weekend.
But for now, let's peer inside THE ANSWERS BOX and see the results from the May 10, 2014 Puzzle Corner and our Mothers' Day Quiz.

01. Who is accredited with the creation of this observance, at least in the United States?
Anna Jarvis
02. Trying to establish the event, who first recognized Mothers' Day?
Jarvis' first success was when West Virginia began celebrating it in 1910.
03. Which President nationally recognized Mothers' Day, and when?
President Woodrow Wilson in 1914
04. Do you think Mothers' Day has gotten too commercial?
Anna Jarvis believed so. She wanted a day of "reverence and contemplation to honor motherhood", but by the 1920s started lobbying for its repeal because of all the merchandisers and retailers taking advantage of the event.
Makes you wonder what Jarvis would think of Mothers' Day now?
