|May 7, 1964  "The Case of
the Drifting Dropout"
Barry Davis, a college-dropout-turned-drifter, has problems keeping steady employment. Mayoral candidate/junk dealer Mort Lynch, once a friend of Barry's uncle, feels he owes the kid a favor and gives him a job.
Barry is still negative on meaningful labor, however. He quits his new job but quickly gets another, working as a reporter for a newspaper publisher who has a grudge against Mort Lynch. But when in the course of his reporting Barry learns that his uncle was a crook, he grows despondent. Things get worse when someone crushes Mort's skull with a monkey wrench, which is found in Barry's car.
