Lois heads to Slug's hideout, Clark timidly following along. Unfortunately asking Slug to stop stealing lunch money from grade-schoolers only leads to him locking our heroes up. Letting the two sweat for a while in captivity, Slug eventually brings Lois a paper to sign admitting that her editor (George Taylor, for you trivia buffs!) is in league with Slug in the slot-machine biz, and that Lois herself is their go-between! Lois refuses to sign, until Slug threatens the life of Clark Kent. Unwilling to let an innocent suffer when she can do something about it, Lois signs the fraudulent paper.
But little do they all know, Clark Kent is actually Superman! Still locked in a seperate room, Clark changes into his blue tights and blasts the door from its hinges sending "screws and bolts flying" through the air! The next panel brilliantly shows him catching it before it can hit the ground, as Superman states he doesn't want to make too much noise lest anyone hear him. There are probably quieter ways of opening doors than punching them off their hinges, but I can't think of any and neither can Superman!
Look at this asshole, he even shouts "Make way!" as he punches it!
Obviously Superman isn't afraid of getting hurt by these ordinary dudes, so he's likely being "quiet" to spare Lois potential harm. Of course the next thing he does is shout "I'm on my way!" as he runs down the hall, and straight into a thug. Being run into by a charging Superman isn't something a person is likely to recover from quickly, so I assume a good amount of time takes place between the panel where Superman bumps the guy and the next where the poor fool pulls a gun. Superman, naturally, slaps the bullet back into the gun thus disarming the thug. We know he loves to show off, but what about being quiet?? For Lois' sake, man!
The thugs find him destroying more machines, and fire their tommy guns at him to no effect. Next they try gas, and Superman...
Things begin to wrap up: as Lois' admission that her editor was in cahoots with Slug is printed in a rival paper Clark uses the stolen documents to prove the claim false. Superman then goes around town smashing up all the slot machines, while Lois gets kidnapped by Slug and his cronies as they drive out of town!
The kindly moustachioed shopkeep decides to get rid of his own slot machine before Superman arrives, an act which the passing Slug plans to put a stop to. However, before Slug can harm the old man Superman intervenes and saves both the moustache and Lois.
Carrying Slug to the local public school, Superman makes him tell the children that his machines were fixed and they never could have won. Which, really, isn't going to dissuade them from gambling. "Oh, the fixed machines are gone? Great, now we can gamble safely!" Another good job, Superman.
The story finally (finally) comes to an end as a police sergeant is unable to arrest Slug due to lack of witnesses to his confession...until hundreds of children pour into the station! How the hell did they know? Creepy psychic kids.
