. Old Phineas Begley, the multi-million-
aire, was dead. He was, as far as anybody
knew, the last of his line — descendant of
a noted family that went back hundreds
of years in American history. He had left,
no will, fcnd it was expected that his huge
"■fortune would revert to the state. But
from nowhere appeared a swarm of claim-
ants, all swearing to be distant connections
of the Begley family. Adams and Adams,
old Phineas's attorneys, had their hands
full in disproving the numerous claims.
Therefore, they were not in a particularly

up a boy with a close resemblance — and

both of you, and I must ask you to leave!"
The place was at the ancestral Begley
home, and the claimant was a Mrs. Hen-

stated — but her husband, recently de-
ceased, had always told her that he was
one of the Begleys. Therefore, she stated,
her young son Abernathy was the logical.

"That's a coincidence! The first Begley
in America, who founded the family for-

a portrait of him as a child, right up.
The portrait showed a handsome boy of
about ten years old, with a mane of brown
hair over piercing blue eyes. There was

It was now the turn of both attorneys
to gasp, because there entered a handsome
boy of about ten years old, with a mam*
of brown hair over piercing blue ryes. He
was the replica of the boy in the portrait!
Mr. Adams, Sr., recovered first. "Clever,"
he said coldly, u veri) clever. You got a

her head held high, "''ome, son!" Just as
they walked towards the door, a dog —
obviously, Ihe boy 's — bounded in — and
Adams father and son exchanged startled
gasps. What w strange-looking little dog,
its coat a mass of tight* ringlets! "This
way, Patapan," said the boy, as he took
his leash and led him out.
And now the attorneys were alone in
the gloomy old study. The younger one
looked at his father hesitantly. " She
couldn't have fixed up the boy to look like
that picture," he reminded him, "because
nobody's even seen the picture tor years!
"Old Phineas kept the study locked up for
the last 40 years of his life!"
"I don't know how she did it, but she .

man. ' ' But that dog — how \\ she swing

you could, say. atrained child actor! What
was the ridiculous name that kid called
him ? Oh. yes — I'afapati!" Frowning, he
inspected the portrait. It had been painted
by a master craftsman, with an attention
to detail which was almost miraculous.
Mr. Adams. Sr., picked up a powerful
magnifying glass from the study desk.
" Amazing," he said. "This glass even
brings out. the texture of his suit!"
"What's that spot of yellow on the dog's
collar?" asked his son.
Beneath the strong glass, the yellow spot
took precise form. " Why. it's a name-tag 1 ."
said the old lawyer. "Ami I think I can
even make out the name- on it! It's—it's

Amazing new medicated lotion developed
by a doctor works wonders by clearing up
skin blemishes in one week or less!
DON'T let a bad complexion ruin romance, spoil your fun,
cause you to be embarrassed, shy or ashamed. If you
suffer from acne, the common external cause of pimples
among young people, try this wonderfully effective medicated
lotion 1 that was developed by a practicing physician to clear
up his own teen ager's complexion after other methods had
failed. It has produced astonishing results for many thousands
of others. It is GUARANTEED to help you or it won't cost
you a single cent!
Doesn't Show On Your Face
Keraplex is a skin-colored lotion (NOT a greasy salve or
ointment!) that is quickly absorbed by the skin and gets
right down in the pores where its healing and antiseptic ingre-
dients can go to work. After you have applied it, there is no
trace left on the surface. In fact, it makes a perfect powder
base for girls and a refreshing after shaving lotion for men . . .
actually improves the tone of the skin! It is pleasant and
easy to use — leaving your skin soft, clean and fragrant.
Works in SIX Out of SEVEN Cases!
An analysis of RESULTS taken from actual case histories
proves that Keraplex is Successful in clearing up six of every
seven cases, of externally caused blackheads, pimples and
other common blemishes. It is also very effective in the treat-
ment of eczema. It tones up the complexion generally, giving
it a healthy, radiant glow.
Try This New Method
Without Risking A Penny!
Keraplex is GUARANTEED to clear up your skin troubles
or there will be NO COST to you whatsoever. If yours hap-
pens to be the ONE extra -stubborn case out of seven which
Keraplex cannot help in one short week, it will cost you
nothing to have tried it. Keraplex is sent to you with that
simple, positive GUARANTEE!

The editor of such a magazine as
"Forbidden Worlds" has a task which
is far from easy. His job isn't a matter
of merely accumulating enough stories
to fill an issue. Rather, its his responsi-
bility to determine the kind of stories
which will prove most popular among our
large reading public. Once this is done,
the job's just begun. Naturally, ye Editor
can't -fill these pages with one story after
the other adhering to a single formula,
even if that formula is the most successful.
You, the readers, would be the first to
notice and resent such lack of originality.
So we try to vary our contents so that
they'll always be fresh and different. Of
course, there's always one lead story in
which we sort of "shoot the works." In
this issue — as if we have to tell you! — -
it's "Pussycat On The Dog Star.** This,
one is distinctly an offbeat effort, embody-
ing as novel a treatment as ever we've
What's so different about it? Well, if
you were just to pick up this magazine
and riffle carelessly through its pages, you
might not notice a thing. But if you did
this, you wouldn't be the type of "For-
bidden Worlds" fan that makes up our
large and enthusiastic readership. You
see, our kind of reader tears into a story,
digesting every last bit of substance that
it contains. And if you happen to be a
typical fan, you'll notice that this is no
typical science fiction yarn. Oh, it's got
science fiction in it, all right — but that's
only the beginning! For what we've done
here is attempt to make science fiction
come alive; to make it human, plausible
— and at the same time, to give it a
"sock" ending that's purely out of this
We've done this because the vastly en-
joyable correspondence which we hold
with so many of our readers indicates
clearly that this is the sort of fare you
want. "Give us real stories,'* you've
clamored — "the sort of stuff we can sink
our teeth into! That means yarns that
fascinate — that challenge — that surprise!"
And so we came up with x "Pussycat On
The Dog Star," and we'd like it to set
a precedent for future yarns to come. If
you like it, write and tell us so— and if
you don't, we want to hear that, too.
Just remember that every little bit helps
in framing a magazine that's tailor-made
for your taste! Address your letter to
The Editor, "Forbidden Worlds," 45
West 45th Street, New York 36, N. Y.
We'll print your letter, if space limita-
tions permits. And in case you're in-
terested in what some of our other readers
are writing, here goes!
I've always thought that 'Forbidden
Worlds' was the best, most exciting
comic on the stands — and now I think
so more than ever! Your stories are
— L. V. Turete, Los Angeles, Calif."
"Dear Editor: —
I was glad to see * Forbid den Worlds 9
survive when all of the old horror'
magazines went off the stands. It proves
that decent reading matter can, in the
long run, be more thrilling, interesting
and satisfying than the other kind!
Congratulations to you!
— Odette Girth, Paris 16, France."
"Dear Editor: —
I missed several of your issues, but I
sure am glad to catch up with you
again! r Forbidden Worlds' is right up
on top of the heap for story and art.
Keep up the good work!
— Henry Morello, New Orleans, La."
