Indexer Notes

Bottom third of story/sequence page 6 is sequence 12. Bottom third of story/sequence page 12 is a DC house ad. This results in the 11.33 TOTAL page length. The two parts of this story ending in partial pages indicates a few years of age for it, DC having discontinued that construction that long back, but the job number is paradoxically contemporaneous with this publication date.
