Wonder Woman plays a secretarial role only in main story, but also features in a one page public service announcement about waste paper management, drawn by Harry G. Peter.

Synopsis

Green Lantern and Flash enter JSA HQ and are welcomed back, then Hawk tells the group about Dick Amber, who is about to be drafted, and who can’t see why the U.S. should be fighting Germany. Dick is told by various members the history of the German people and their attitude toward peace. That doesn’t sway him until the Conscience of Man re-awakens and appears at the meeting, and tells them all that she will send Dick back through varied times of Germany’s past to see for himself. A JSA member will go along, but cannot interfere, as Dick alone must make up his mind.

After several adventures Conscience asks Dick if his views are now changed after all of his experiences, and he confesses he has finally learned the truth about German war-mongering, and that it must be stopped for the good of the world! Therefore he will enter the Army. Conscience tells the members that they have a responsibility to now inform the world of the truth learned by Dick Amber. And their solution is the “Formula For a Lasting Peace,” which was signed by all the regular members of the JSA and Wonder Woman, as Secretary.
