Martha hears about a condemned hotel and sees the possibilities of a great newspaper story there.

Indexer Notes

Tilting figures with long upper body and awkward way of standing and walking, some wild eyes, and also broad shoulders and narrow head on stretched neck are all pointing to Zolnerowich. He is credited on both pencils and ink on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but inking may vary.
