Number 2004: The patriotic poison gas
“The Unknown Ghost” is of its era, when it was unpatriotic to question the wisdom and motives of the government. Even so, had Gordon divulged to the powers-that-be in 1952 that his decision was made by listening to ghosts I think he would have found himself in a hospital for a mental evaluation. This is another of those oddball ACG supernatural stories which for its full effect is better read by you than described by me.
The story of a ghost that “holds all the trumps” is from Out of the Night #4 (1952). It is drawn by Lou Cameron.
