Indexer Notes

c.f. J. Makowski (signed). The World Of Stella Shaw in Secret Story Romances (1953 series) #7 June 1954.
There is some Christopher Rule involvement in the signed SSR story, but I see a connection with this style, too. Note: almost the SAME date!

Indexer Notes

This is, IIRC, identical with the style of the signed Secret Story Romance#7 story. Before I knew the name Chris Rule, on my note cards I identified all of his work as "J. Makowski".

Indexer Notes

The last page of the text story is divided into three columns. The third column is used to display the statement of ownership information.
