Synopsis for "The Super-Luck of Badge 77"
As his previous report on being a firefighter for a week proved to be popular, Perry White sends Clark Kent on another assignment: Spending a week being a police officer. The police chief gives Clark a uniform and badge number 77, a badge that was previously worn by a now retired police officer. When Clark is asked to get a homemade gun out of his safe, it goes off, and the bullet ricochets off him, instead of believing that Clark is really Superman, the chief attributes it to the fact that Badge #77 was the good luck charm of it's previous owner.
As Superman, Clark fixes the gun before resuming his guise of a temporary police officer. Clark then uses the badge to preform super feats and stop criminals, such as a mad bomber and a gang of thugs looking for revenge. When Lois tells Clark about some fur smugglers in town, the two find themselves locked in a freezer containing the stolen furs. Clark then uses Lois's diamond studded broach (with her initials on it) to cover up that he's using his finger nail to carve through a pane of unbreakable glass. After turning over his uniform at the end of his assignment, they all muse about how L.L. upside down could be interpreted a 77, and wonder if it's that lucky a number.

Synopsis for "How Perry White Hired Clark Kent"
Back in the day when Clark Kent was trying to establish himself in Metropolis, he had no job and used his abilities as Superman to earn income. However, when his land lady becomes suspicious about where he obtained the money, after telling her previous he was unemployed, he decides to get a legitimate job as an extra cover for his secret identity. Initially trying to get a job at the Daily Planet, Perry White refuses him unless he can get a good story.
His first attempt at getting a story is when he follows Perry's lead to do a story about Bongo, an aging gorilla at the Metropolis zoo. Kent tries to rouse the old timer into a fight by dressing up as a gorilla and attacking the aging ape. He manages to get the story he wishes, but when he reports it back to Perry, Perry is less than impressed. After another failed attempt, Perry is about to tell him his next idea involving Superman and Kryptonite. Opening a box of Kryptonite in front of Clark causes him to faint. However they believe it's due to him having not eaten in a while when they hear his stomach growling. After giving him a meal, Perry gives him one last chance at getting a job with the Daily Planet: Get a picture of Superman holding Kryptonite.
This is something that Clark -- being Superman in disguise -- can easily do and so he takes a picture of himself as Superman with fake Kryptonite, and returns it to Perry as Clark Kent. Perry is impressed with Kent's work that he hires him on as a reporter for the Planet.
