A Sinister ScoopEdit
Intelligence man Reginald Whitney has got sensitive information about Nazi Germany and has offered the Affiliated Press an exclusive interview. This assignment is given to Headline Hunter who rushes off with the special invitation to get the interview. He is spotted by rival reporter Will Jenks who wants to see Whitney as well and tells Hunter to the hotel that Rginald is staying at. Arriving in advance of Headline, Will learns that nobody is admitted to see Reginald without the proper pass. Waiting for Hradline to arrive Jenks hits him from behind and steals his pass, granting him access to Whitney's room.
Coming around, Headline is not willing to be out scooped, and so he poses as a bellhop to get into Whitney's room to "dust." In reality, he hides in a closet and overhears the interview conducted by Jenks. However, this turns to be much more than an interview as after it is complete Jenks pulls out a gun. Jenks reveals that he is really Wilhelm von Logor, a member of the Gestapo assigned to eliminate Whitney before he could reveal any secrets about Germany to the press. Hunter then rushes into the room and stops von Logor's attempt to assassinate Whitney. With Wilhelm turned over to the authorities, Hunter takes the recorded interview to his editor and it gets published in the paper.
