News of Yore: Don Winslow on the Move
'Don Winslow' to GFC
The "Don Winslow" comic strip, previously syndicated by Bell Syndicate, transfers to General Features Corp. Aug. 4. Beginning with the Aug. 18 release a new story line makes it an "all service" strip instead of the previous strictly navy affair. Winslow becomes the "Ace Intelligence Officer of the Department of Defense."
Creator of "Don Winslow" is Frank V. Martinek, assistant vice-president of Standard Oil Co. (Ind.), Great Lakes district chairmen of the Oil Industry Information Committee, former Chicago newspaperman, naval intelligence officer and special F.B.I, agent.
