Synopsis for "The Unwanted Supergirl!"
On March 31st, 1970, one Prof. Miles Morrison tests his Crime Computer at a rally in Stanhope, which site he has chosen because (he says) he admires Supergirl more than anyone else in the world. But, when the computer accurately predicts Princess Jeannette of a foreign country will be killed by terrorists, Supergirl cannot save her. And when Oscar-nominated actress Astra Allison is predicted to be blackmailed, Supergirl cannot thwart the blackmailer from making charges against her on nationwide TV. Even Superman seems callous towards his cousin.
But on the next morning, Supergirl realizes--even though the students at Stanhope have an anti-Supergirl rally--that it is now April 1st. That cues her to the entire affair being a ploy of Mr. Mxyzptlk, whom she exposes as "Prof. Morrison" and tricks into saying his name backwards. When he returns to the 5th Dimension, all the deeds he has done with his magic--including
the death of Princess Jeannette, the blackmail of Astra Allison, and the anti-Supergirl sentiment of the students and Superman--are canceled.

Dr. Marla Alexander is teaching a course on Supergirl, which both Linda Danvers and her roomie Janice Butler attend. But Janice demonstrates incredible knowledge of the Girl of Steel, including some details which have never been made public.
When suspicion falls on Linda being Supergirl due to a detail Janice reports, Linda throws it off by means of a ruse. Later she discovers she has been talking in her sleep, and imparting the information about her career to Janice, who subconsciously picked it up in her own sleep. Linda hypnotizes herself out of sleep-talking.
