Clem Rogers is a cub reporter writing obituaries and weather reports, until he gets his chance at a story so big he'll get the front page for sure! It looks like Jane Atwell, the daughter of the front runner for mayor, might just be involved in the murder of the District Attorney. When Clem quits basking in his own success he starts to doubt the facts of his report but can he get to the bottom of the true story before Jane and her father are ruined?
