Superman continues walking across the country, visiting Detroit Michigan. He plays a pickup game of basketball, and runs across alien refugees hiding on Earth, admonishing them to give back to their adopted community. He is given a tour of a closed factory by the watchman, but then his tour-guide collapses. Superman takes him to the aliens, and convinces them to cure him. He also convinces them to reopen factories to use their ultra medical science for the development of new techniques and equipment.
