Synopsis for The Clock: "Moe Klone and Scrag Scadone"

Moe Klone the racketeer and accused cop-killer got out on bail and planned to flee the country. The Clock found out about it, and with his assistant Pug Brady, set an ambush for Klone, at an old wharf building. Klone showed up with two trigger-itchy gunsels, and the Clock and Pug took them down with their bare fists, threw them into the Clock's car, and delivered them to the police station. The Clock gave Captain Kane a few pointers on how to use a piece of rubber hose to get information out of Klone, then a gaggle of reporters and photographers swarmed into Kane's office, and one of them took a photo of the Clock. The Clock grabbed that guy's camera, smashed it on the floor, then handed the photographer some money for a new one.

The next morning's newspaper stories about the Clock, and his recent successes in taking down some top racketeers, were very favorable. In his hide-out, underworld czar "Scrag" Scadone read these stories and decided to do something about it. Then from June 5th through June 15th, Scadone's gang kidnapped a famous scientist, a retired banker, and a congressman (Dr. Polk, Paul J. Hogan, and Congressman Doe).

Brian O'Brien and Pug Brady read about these crimes and grew increasingly frustrated, as clue after clue failed to pan out. From his hide-out, Scadone used a short-wave radio set to contact the Clock, and make a hostage-threatening deal: the Clock should come alone to the corner of Dock and Pile Streets, one hour from that moment. The Clock didn't reply to the transmission, but he did proceed immediately to the designated spot, and was summarily ambushed. In Scrag's office, some smack was talked, then the Clock spun, grabbed a gun away from one thug, and pointed it at Scadone. But Scadone stepped on a button, under his desk, releasing a huge block of concrete from overhead. But Pug dove into the room and snatched the Clock out from under it before it could smash into the floor. Then the Clock and Pug punched out Scrag's bodyguard and threw him out through a closed window. Scadone tried to hide by dousing the lights, but he was too slow, and got grabbed by the feet by the Clock, and was whirled around like a baseball bat. Another thug threw a knife at the Clock's unprotected back, but Pug grabbed a stunned thug off the floor and hurled him into the path of the thrown knife. The Clock tied up all the beaten-down bad guys while Pug released the three hostages, then they both left, to telephone Captain Kane for a clean-up crew.
