Indexer Notes

Inexplicably, Chief O’Hara is called “Captain O’Hara” in this story. Bob Ogle story credit by Joe Torcivia. October 2019. Previous indexer listed Vic Lockman. No indications of "Vic Lockman style dialogue", more humor exhibited than in a typical Vic Lockman story, and this tale appears during a time period when Bob Ogle was writing for Western - including some Super Goof stories - indicate this is more likely Ogle than Lockman.
