Appears to be the end of one storyline and the start of another half way through page 4. Change in artwork and reference made by Scorchy to Joe Sody (in Army Air Corps uniform) that he came in from Tokyo indicates that the story was post-World War II and would make it after Robbins left the strip in 1944.
