Inks: Pen Shumaker ? [as Joe Simon] (signed)
Notes: Shumaker's mouths are very distinctive.
Characters: The Sandman [Wesley Dodds]; Sandy [Sandy Hawkins]; Philo Jones; High-Hat Archie (villain)
Synopsis: High-Hat Archie overhears Philo relating a dream of his to Wes and Sandy, a dream in which Archie and his gang steal the cash from Jones's estate, escape, and then are tracked down by the Sandman and Sandy. Although the Sandman doesn't believe in dreams as prophesying the future, this one comes pretty close.

Inks: Pen Shumaker
Notes: Art identifications made by Jerry Bails and confirmed to John Fallon by Gil Kane. Oddity: on page 6, panel 3, Sandman calls High-Hat Archie "High-Hat Charlie".
