Woolfolk's true crime stories in this period were paid at a number of page rates. Two that I can track down to Orbit's Wanted ("Jay Jostyn" in April 1947 and "The Black Hand" upcoming in March 1948) were paid at $7 and $8 the page. Of the stories I couldn't find, October's "Seeress of Murder" was $6, and November's two undescribed stories were $9 (the 7-pager) and $7 (the 13-pager). This month's was $8 per page. I'll note that Timely consistently paid Woolfolk $9 a page for the superhero and western stories; Fawcett and Quality's rates shifted with the feature or total number of story pages. I don't know if conclusions can be drawn.
UPDATE: SangorShop found the Pontiac story that I couldn't before I posted. My most likely suspect, in this paragraph before updating, was Orbit's The Westerner (the story was paid at $8); I believe this issue's details have only just made it to the Grand Comics Database.
As usual at this point, some Timely stories had pages added or subtracted by the time the script got to the artist. That may mean nothing more than that the number of panels per page was shifted about.
FURTHER UPDATE: I found the society gal Tom Mix story when I finally examined the issue; the title wasn't a help in IDing it!
