This appears to be the last we'll see of 'Maginnis of the Mounties' (by Richard Matheson). The last strip sees him saving the lives of the outlaws who tried to set him on fire a few months ago. As uninspired as most of the strips are at the moment, this was one of the dullest. At least it bows out with a conclusion of sorts.
'Federal Men' (by Siegel and Shuster) takes an interesting detour this month, as scientist Professor Grant recounts a tale of the Federal Men of 3000 AD. It's probably most notable for featuring a character named Jor-L, a name which Siegel and Shuster would later recycle for Superman's Kryptonian father. If you're looking for an in-universe rationale (and I always am) I guess it's not too much of a stretch to believe that the legend of Superman would still be inspiring people to name their kids after his relatives that far into the future.
