Well, this time you beat _me_, because I'm on the digests as well...

And about that hypnotism story (there's a chance David beat me in 
answering this...):

Actually, the story had no title in the newspapers. Is has been reprinted
several times, and had several titles then. "The Gleam" is a title the
Gladstone people chose in their MM Newspaper index (in the book "MM in Color"),
I don't know from which reprint this was. My title ("The Jewel Robbery") was
from the early WDC reprint (WDC 81 - 84).

And I don't know where David got the 1941 date; I think my dates are

I think I know this one, but I'll leave it to David.. 8-)
