    "Jack Oaks" should read Jack Oakes.

    "Bert Turner and Oaks" - this is another Oakes, this time Jimmy Oakes.

    "Frank Wriss (sp?)" should read Frank Rist.

    "Joe Joplin (sp?)" should read Joe Jobling.

    "Kag Hobbies (sp?)" - his real name is Harold Hobbis (I don't know why Kag is his nickname).

    "Hobbins" is Sydney Hobbins.
