Synopsis

When Clark accidently knocks out members of the Rockdust Gang, who are smuggling out stolen gold from town, the timid reporter is made Sheriff of Saddle Rock. But it's Superman who uncovers the identity of the real criminal boss of the gang.

Notes

Story appears to be called "The Rockdust Bandits" on the splash page, but is called "Sheriff Clark Kent" in the original comic's table of contents and text in the form of a 'signature' on the splash page.
