Indexer Notes

When reprinted in #72 page 2 is missing. On this page the customer actually leaves the brief case behind. In the reprint it looks like Chop Chop gets in the taxi with the brief case in it. Panel two on page 2 of the reprint (page 3 of the original) the text has been changed. In the original the text was "Ohh! Man in big hully..." while the reprint has "Someone in big hully...".

All Gustavson credits verified and courtesy of Terry Gustafson, son of Paul Gustavson.
