Danger in the form of a flood presents itself:Perry White is still not the name of the editor (though Clark and Lois do call him "Chief" and the Daily Planet is still called the Daily Star...
Obviously this was well before Ma and Pa Kent were introduced into the mythos. Pa would have told Clark not to be cow towed by an overbearing boss when Clark was in the right, and Ma would have surely taught him not to be so swayed by feminine wiles.
