As seen in "Menace" - january 1955:

'on the blotter...':
Evan Hunter got a lot of the material for the tough and realistic 'PANAMA PANIC' during his term in the Navy, during World War II, when he served in Panama.
Hunter is the author of the newly-published 'THE BLACKBOARD JUNGLE', which is selling at a terrific pace at bookstores all over the country.
M.G.M. purchased movie rights to the novel for $95,000, and Hunter is now as well off as he used to dream he might be, back in the Navy.
But some guys are never satisfied - he is now at work on a new novel, and he is also turning in more stories for Menace as well as for our companion magazine, Manhunt.

((El Jefe is in the fine companion of William E. Vance, Hal Ellson, Stephen Marlowe, Fletcher Flora, Robert Turner, etc...)). No Collins, no Cannon and no Marsten - for once- here in this magazine...:-).

This story was later published in Verdict (Aug 1956) as "Get Out Of Town" by...Hunt Collins :)

"Get Out of Town" was credited to Evan Hunter in Verdict; the story by Hunt Collins was "Eye-Witness"
