Indexer Notes

Notarized 14-10-1940.
Leo Greenwald signs this as "Leo Greenwald, Publisher", but the statement just gives Worth Publishing Co., Inc. as the publisher and Greenwald as the editor.
Address for both Greenwald and Worth Pub. Co., Inc. is:
122 East 42nd St., New York City

Note that this issue is published by Champ Publishing Company at a different address. All previous issues were published by Worth Pub. Co., Inc., edited by Worth Carnahan, so this issue captures various stages of the transition. The SOO would almost certainly have been sworn to before the indicia was typeset.
