Indexer Notes

This is a science fiction story in which Herbie makes a brief appearance as a boy scout. He is not in character and has no special powers. The story is credited to Shane O'Shea (Richard E. Hughes) and art to Ogden Whitney, both of whom are pictured by their names on the splash page. Since Hughes wrote all known ACG stories in 1962, pictures of any pseudonyms were made up, but the drawing of Whitney is thought to be accurate (based on Yahoo ACG group comments).
