ABOARD A SLAVE SHIP ~ 1932.01.17
Lord of the Jungle, swings through the trees of the forest, suddenly he
halts. He has seen a strange ship at anchor. . . and . . . men of the jungle
being led into a life of torture by Moorish slavers. Swiftly the ape man
quits the shelter of the jungle, dives into the sea, and swims toward the
sinister craft. Unobserved by the crew of the slaver, Tarzan reaches the
stern of the ship. Up a dangling rope he goes, hand over hand. The men
of the jungle struggle against their iron bars.
"Our cages are full." Tarzan hears the men of
the crew say. "Soon we will sail for Ishkib and the slave market."
The blocks rattle, the sails go up, the ship moves,
and a cargo of helpless humanity is being borne away. As the ship leaves
the coast, Tarzan creeps below deck on his errand of mercy. Swiftly he
overpowers the guard. He takes the keys and . . . liberates the jungle
men! They swarm behind the ape man as he leads them towards the deck and
freedom. The blacks attack the crew and dive overboard.
"Get up!" says Tarzan, "You are free again to
roam the jungle!"
