Indexer Notes

This is a one-page, one-panel image that could be construed as the splash page for the next Tom the All American Cat story (since both deal with Tom as a boxer), but there is an intervening,one-page unrelated comic story between the two. This is the same as in the original version, except the intervening page was an advertisement in that case.
