Synopsis for “The Life Insurance Scam”
Lois Lane visits the home of Mrs. Davis, an elderly woman, with Clark Kent. Lois learns that another woman, Mrs. Bradford, has died recently. Clark discovers that the woman’s aspirin has been poisoned and believes the death was done for the insurance money. Investigating, the reporters visit Gram’s Drug Store, which sold the aspirin. They find no evidence as they are thrown out of the store, and they witness a hit-and-run accident in the street which kills another woman. A mob then attacks the drug store which forces Superman to intervene to stop the riot. Later, Lois and Clark call on the insurance agent, Mr. Fullerton. He is angered by the allegations and throws them out. Lois returns however to find Tom Bruce, Mrs. Davis’ neighbor and initiator of the riot, in Fullerton’s office. Lois is captured, but Superman rescues her. Superman trails the hoods, while Lois confronts Fullerton again. Fullerton brings Lois to his own Political Boss Martin, who is also the boss of the hoods. Martin reveals he is behind the insurance scam, and he was trying to pin it on Fullerton. Superman arrives too late to save Fullerton, but he does save Lois and catch the crooks.
