Indexer Notes

Feature is signed by Chas. A Quinlan and Quinlan was also a writer on several other features so I believe he probably wrote this although not credited in the Who's Who. New note: True writer identified by Craig Delich 2012-11-30. Quinlan Jr. was the writer for his father during the 1940's while he was still in high school.
