Description: Someone has tried to kill an old man in a boarding house. A murdered insurance investigator and a $40,000 payoff add to the mystery. Keep your eye on "Skinny" and his flag, one of the boarders at the house! George prevents the murder of a man who is believed to have seen the commission of another murder, but ironically, is too enfeebled to have seen anything at all.

Opening Line Introduction: The opening continues to evolve to compliment the plot with George Valentine reading a different text from his previous week's classified advertisement, "Personal notice: Danger is my stock in trade. If you feel like a knife throwers assistant in a high wind, you got a job for me, George Valentine. Write full details."
First Line: "Dear Valentine, you might not remember but you and I had a very interesting talk once in the smoking car of the Streamliner, at least as far as Mayville Junction we did. Anyway, that's why I feel I can call on you now as a friend. I live with my little sister, Mrs. Tisha Packler, she's got too much money, more than's good for any woman. She can't control it, I can't control her and unless you help out there's going to be a big, loud crash at the end of the line. Now I've warned her…"

There is another program format change. This change moves the "Opening Line Introduction" of George reading his classified ad ahead of the usual opening commercial. This change also marks the end to the customization of the text of the classified ad as the body of the ad becomes consistent "… If the job's too tough for you to handle…".

Another major format change is the elimination of the promotional skit for the following week's broadcast usually presented at the end of the broadcast.

A woman who gave up her own musical career for just for the sake of a man who is as cold and bleak, as incapable of tenderness as the music he composes or the dreary stone house that they hibernate in. His name is Edmund Salter. He is very ill it's true but caring for him has made his wife even more than ill, she can't even smile anymore, nor will she tell me, her oldest and only remaining friend, the strange secret of her unhappiness, her worry, her fear, perhaps even her danger. Mr. Valentine, since I must leave shortly for New York, the opening of ballet, will you please, please come immediately to meet me at this author's home? It is far out on Ocean Drive, Pacific Bluffs, California. Sincerely, Yasha Hardwig

Yes, yes I got tears of sorrow!'? Yeah I know, you think I'm crazy, so do I. So does the Western Milton Separator Company, that's the outfit I work for, traveling farm supplies. My district is eastern California, Arizona, New Mexico. But Valentine, there's one place on my route I can't stay away from, it's the dullest, saddest, poorest, loneliest place on all Route 113. Gas, hamburgers, motel and the Malayan, the place is called Stillman's Last Chance, and brother it is. Now listen, last time I was there I bumped into the wrong cabin by mistake. I never see what happens except I get a knife in my face, a foot in my stomach and a fist on the jaw. The next thing I know I'm waking up between my own proper sheets and nobody will say who put me to bed. Nobody will explain a note in my pocket which said, 'Stop asking questions or you'll have a worse accident.' Valentine, I'm going back to that place but I'm no hero, I need your help. If you could come meet me there…"

So here it goes, you read in the newspapers the past year about the punishments of the sinful that were known as The Quotation Mark Killings. First there in the city, then several more times in towns up the valley and all by the same man. Only he was never caught. Mr. Valentine, I believe in justice and what scares me more than anything is the idea that some hick cop might get it all wrong, might make an innocent person suffer for those killings, which I did! Yes me! Every one of them!"

That until a year ago we all got along quite well together without any disturbing element to ruffle the surface of our peaceful existence. Further, that this is the year nineteen and fifty and what happened seems almost impossible, but happen it did. And yet now, as of this morning, our town is once more peaceful. The disturbing element is no more, and why? Because Mr. Valentine, last night there was a fire and in that fire the witch was burned."
