Indexer Notes

Pencils:
1) Most probably Sultan on pencils. He is credited on pencils on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the horses are identical to those in the Whip story in Crack Western #84. Compare page 5 panel 4 here with page 4 pane 7 in #84.
2) Reed Crandall suggested by Saltarella
