   * After learning of the destruction of York Hospital, where he placed Sandy Hawkins under the care of Dr. Price, the Sandman goes in search of his former ward, refusing to believe that Sandy is dead. Meanwhile, Dr. Price has become a costumed super-villain calling himself the Shatterer, using Sandy'​s silicoid body to cause earthquakes to hold the city ransom. Sandman tracks down the source of the earthquakes,​ defeats the Shatterer, and frees Sandy. Then the Sandman, gambling that a carbon-based explosion might transform Sandy back to normal, successfully restores Sandy to human form, and still with the body of a 16- or 17-year-old young man, even though he is chronologically 50 years old. Sandy uses what are apparently the last vestiges of his earthquake power to create a rift that swallows up the Shatterer after the super-villain attempts to kill them both. The Sandman and Sandy the Golden Boy begin a new series of infrequent adventures over the next few years, while Sandy continues his broken education. //Note: Although this story seems to follow directly after the Sandman story in issue #42, it is evident that the events of #42 must take place before the Sandman'​s return to the JSA in 1966, while this story must take place some years after the events of Justice League of America #113.// ["​Whatever Happened to Sandy, the Golden Boy?"

 +  * Through his crystal ball, Doctor Fate discovers that the Earth-One universe is doomed. Learning that Iris Allen, wife of Barry Allen (the Flash of Earth-One), suffers from an affliction that will cause the universe to be destroyed if she comes into contact with her husband Barry Allen'​s super-speed aura, Fate arranges for the Flash (Jay Garrick) to kidnap Iris from Earth-One and bring her to Earth-Two, keeping her at Jay and Joan Garrick'​s home in Keystone City for two weeks. Doctor Fate casts a spell that keeps the Flash of Earth-One too busy on his Earth to continue his search for his wife Iris, causing him to briefly think another woman is his wife, while a huge mystical hand attacks him until he manages to defeat it. Unable to cure Iris, Fate sends her to the 30th century timeline where her true parents live, and where they may be able to find a cure that will enable her to rejoin Barry. Doctor Fate then tries and fails to thwart the Earth-One Flash from visiting the 30th century himself. Thus, after the Earth-One Flash reaches the 30th century and spots his wife, Fate manages to transmit the truth to his mind just before he makes contact. Unfortunately,​ a chain reaction still begins that would cause a cataclysm, until Professor Zoom the Reverse-Flash appears and stops it himself, revealing that he caused Iris' affliction in order to keep her away from Barry and force her to marry him to save the universe. The Flash of Earth-One soon learns how to cure Iris by observing the Reverse-Flash,​ and defeats the villain before bringing his wife back to the 20th century to finalize her cure.
