When Rockoff sees the witchdoctor has been watching him and Edwards stealing diamonds from the Wazuri temple, he walks over to the native. The witchdoctor stands still, not knowing what Rokoff intends to do. Then, without warning, Rokoff pulls a knife from his belt and plunges it into the witchdoctor's body. Slowly, the native sinks to the floor . . . dead. They both run!
|47. A MESSAGE FOR TARZAN
When the Wazuri find the body of their witchdoctor murdered by Rokoff and Edwards, they are furious. Jane realizes that she will probably be killed because of the crime of the two crooks. Her only chance is to let Tarzan know. She tells Joe and Cheeta to hurry through the jungle, and find Tarzan. "Tell him to come as quickly as possible," whispers Jane. The two messengers hurry away.
|48. TARZAN'S OLD HOME
Tarzan and the old man who remembered Tarzan's father travel through the jungle until they reach a waterfall. And there, on a bit of land below the waterfall, is a hut . . . crumbling with age. "That is it," says the old man. "That is where your father and mother lived before they were killed. That is where you played when you were a little boy."
|49. INSIDE THE HUT
Tarzan and the old Wazuri enter the house where Tarzan's father used to live. Monkeys are running in and out of the broken walls. At last, Tarzan picks up a book that is crumbling age. It's what they have been looking for . . . the bible that belonged to Tarzan's father. "We must hurry back to the village," says Tarzan. "This will prove I am a friend." He doesn't know of Jane's danger!
|50. THIEVES' ESCAPE
The two thieves and murderers, Rokoff and Edwards, hurry through the jungle with the treasure in diamonds they stole from the Wazuri temple. Rokoff wants Edwards to hurry, but Edwards is still too weak from the arrow-wound he had suffered. "I can't go any further," says Edwards. "We'll have to rest." Rokoff smiles. He doesn't intend to let Edwards hold him back!
|51. OVER THE CLIFF
The two crooks are escaping with their stolen diamonds. Then, when Edwards finds he is too weak to continue, Rokoff goes to him and says, "I'll carry you." He picks Edwards up in his arms . . . walks to the edge of the cliff. "What are you going to do?" screams Edwards. Rokoff merely laughs and then throws Edwards over the cliff, down to a group of hungry lions waiting below!
|52. TARZAN IN DANGER
Tarzan arrives just as Rokoff has tossed Edwards over the edge of the cliff and down towards the roaring lions. The ape-man hurriedly grabs a stout vine and starts crawling down the cliff towards the lions, planning on saving Edwards. But Rokoff sees a chance to get rid of Tarzan, too. He takes careful aim and fires . . . hitting the vine, and cutting it. Tarzan tumbles!
|53. THREAT TO JANE
In the Wazuri village, Jane waits in the hut . . . hoping that Tarzan will return in time to keep the Wazuris from killing her. Then there's a slight movement at the entrance to the hut. She finds her self facing a group of stern Wazuri warriors. "You come with us," they say. "Judgement has been passed, and you are to be killed." Tarzan has to come at once, or it will be too late!
|54. JOE AND THE LIONS
Joe and Cheeta, searching for Tarzan, find him lying on a ledge, a tremendous rock pressing on his back. Not far below are a group of fierce lions, trying to reach Tarzan's body. "I must save him," says Joe. He knows that he cannot kill all the lions with his hunting knife, and the only other way is to use the trick Tarzan taught him. He steps forward and faces the lions. . .
|55. HELP FROM A PAL
Joe is able to chase the lions away by staring at them and showing them he is their master. Then he runs forward and climbs up to the ledge where Tarzan is trapped by a large rock. He tugs at the rock while Tarzan pushes and, together, they are able to force the rock from Tarzan's body. Once he is free, the ape-man starts climbing back up the cliff after Rokoff, the murderer.
|56. TARZAN'S FURY
Tarzan races up the cliffside and sees Rokoff, the murderer, trying to run away. He goes after him, makes a flying leap, and brings him down. Rokoff's hand closes around a rock and tries to use it to batter Tarzan's head, but the ape-man is too fast for him. With one movement of his mighty arms, the ape-man sweeps Rokoff off the ground and holds him high in the air.
|57. DEATH FOR A KILLER
Tarzan's struggle with Rokoff, the murderer, does not last very long. Ignoring the screams of his enemy, Tarzan throws Rokoff over the edge of the cliff to a well-deserved death below. Then the ape-man turns to Joe and Cheeta and says, "We must hurry back to the Wazuri village. I am sure Jane is waiting for us!" He doesn't know that, at this very moment, Jane is about to be killed!
|58. RACE AGAINST TIME
Tarzan holds the chest filled with stolen diamonds under his arm as he races through the jungle towards the Wazuri village. Joe and Cheeta are not far behind. Each second is precious to them, for Jane's life is in danger. At last they reach the village, but the streets are empty. They wonder where everyone is, until Tarzan realizes they must be at the torture machine!
|59. JANE IS SAVED
Tarzan rushes up to the torture machine and stops the chief, just before the chief can give the signal to kill Jane. "I have brought back the diamonds stolen by the two enemies of your people," says Tarzan. "And here is the bible of my father, proving to you that we are your friends." The Wazuri chief realizes that Tarzan is telling the truth, and he orders his men to set Jane free.
|60. HOMEWARD BOUND
With all their problems solved, there is nothing left for Tarzan and his mate, and their two friends, Joe and Cheeta, but to return to their tree-house far away. It is a long journey through the trees and across the desert, but they don't mind because they are all together once again . . . and they are all safe. Yet, danger is always waiting for Tarzan . . . and it may come at any time.
|46. The African dances for many reasons; to bring
rain, to celebrate victory in battle or the hunt, and to ward off the evil
spirits of misfortune.
47. At night the African herdsman brings his cattle inside his thorn boma and stands guard against that ever hungry night prowler, the lion.
48. Not many years ago, it was a daring sailorman who dared venture ashore in Africa. The dreaded slave ships lost many a crewman in ambush.
49. The black magician is also the medicine man and sometimes works remarkable cures with his strange mixtures of powders, potions and brews.
50. Swamp dwellers are usually tall and slender and though tormented by insects, do not leave their homes but cover themselves with ashes.
51. In Africa nature knows no armistice and the traveler does well to go armed and ready to fight for his life against the hunger driven beasts.
52. Among The most savage fighters of Africa is the baboon, fearless and bad tempered. They will attack in numbers and kill even the leopard.
53. Tuaregs, the veiled desert fighters, once attacked the salt caravans bound for Timbuctu, for salt is one of Africa's most precious commodities.
54. Great fur-laden cargo canoes make regular trips to Timbuctu 800 miles inland from the nearest coast and trade jungle wares for city goods.
55. Many a sandy rock-strewn valley trail to some distant city is infested with that evil-odored, slope-backed, iron-jawed scavenger, the hyena.
56. When tribes are unfriendly, a boundary line is marked beyond which armed enemy patrols wait in hiding to capture the wanderer and the host.
57. Although the rhinoceros is difficult to kill, he is hunted for his horns which the native believes can restore his youth and strength.
58. The dark sorcerer is no fool but a master psychologist and often a skilled hypnotist who convinces large audiences they have seen miracles.
59. Some tribes have been driven across the plains and through the jungle by their enemies and have finally made their homes on steep mountainsides.
60. In Africa tribesmen engage in bracelet fights. These bracelets are sharp circular blades lashed to the wrists and inflict deep and ugly cuts.
