Synopsis for Pep Morgan: "Volunteer Fireman"Edit

Pep Morgan helps the local fire department put out a fire at Joe Mack's house. Later, the investigator going over the burned-out home discovers evidence of arson! It's the latest in a string of arson cases that have been plaguing Ardale. Mr. Mack plans on selling the property to Rufus Toone, the bank director, since it's no longer any use to him. Pep asks around, and finds out that Rufus Toone and his nephew, Ezra Wright, have made offers to buy each of the homes that were mysteriously burned down, but at the time none of the owners would sell. The latest to be visited by Ezra was Jack Greene, who, like all the others, refused to sell his land. His could be the next targeted house...

A few nights later, Pep's stakeout pays off. A shadowy figure stalks nearby and begins making a fire near the Greene home. He stops when he sees Pep, and takes off running. His days as quarterback for the Ardale team haven't failed him, as Pep easily catches up to, and tackles the fleeing figure. The police rush to the scene, finding the man to be Rufus Toone himself! He is arrested and given time for Arson.

Synopsis for Chuck Dawson: "Murder at the Slash-D Ranch"Edit

Chuck Dawson arrives in town just in time to see a heated exchange escalate into deadly territory. A big man pulls a gun on a gentle fellow who was just trying to apologize. Chuck interrupts the fight, the gunman turns on him, and his pistol is shot out of his hand by Chuck's unerring aim. The big guy runs off, swearing Chuck hasn't seen the last of him.

A few hours later, Chuck hears a gunshot while riding down a rough mountain trail. Ahead, the form of a rider keels over. When Chuck gets closer to see if he can help, he finds the victim was the same man he defended earlier. He was alive, but hurt bad. Chuck leaves the man in the care of some local ranchers, then chases after the shooter. It's not long before he catches up to the gunman, and finds that it was none other than the brute from back in town. The two of them duke it out, but Chuck is the better fighter. He points his gun at the downed varmint and forces him to walk with him back to the sheriff's office.
