Synopsis for "Terror From the Stars"
Clark Kent publishes a story debunking astrology, which draws the attention of shady astrologer Abou Sabut, and his grifter representative (secretly his boss) Tom Nelson. Clark agrees to allow Sabut to demonstrate his astrological forecasting, and two of Sabut's predictions come true: a famous astrology skeptic dies, and a particular jewelery store is robbed. This draws the attention of Superman onto the the astrologers, who soon are exposed as frauds, and Sabut as a murderer. Sabut gets killed, but Nelson is arrested alive.

Minister Sinister has a dimensional-displacement device, which he uses to shunt entire skyscrapers into the Fourth Dimension, where he holds them for ransom. For a brief time he is quite successful. The Daily Planet condemns this racket, so the Planet Building is stolen. But Clark Kent got stolen along with it, and now is in the Fourth Dimension, which helps greatly in locating the villain behind the skyscraper hijackings.
