TARZAN AND THE
RED LION ~ 1932.05.01
As Tarzan dashed
into the circus ring, the great red lion stood above Lenida, ready to strike
again. But before the death blow could reach its goal, Tarzan leaped for
the great cat's back. Numa leaped high in the air, seeking to shake off
his fierce antagonist. When he tried to turn and bite, the lion found a
steel-muscled hand throttling his windpipe. With his free hand, Tarzan
reached for his knife -- the weapon that was almost the sole heritage he
had received from his father in the jungle -- a weapon he always carried
with him. Again and again the keen edged knife stuck into the lunging beast,
which began to sway dizzily while the ape-man increased the ferocity of
his attack. Numa lurched and fell lifeless. Then resounded through the
arena a cry more blood-freezing than that of any of the beasts. At the
sound of it people were frozen in horror or driven to near madness through
sheer terror. It was Tarzan uttering the victory cry of the bull ape at
the kill. Amid the frenzied turmoil that followed, Tarzan disappeared,
running wildly, running like a beast pursued by the hounds of civilization.
Not until he had swung himself into the trees of the city park was he again
in control of himself -- again he was realizing that his real home had
ever to be among the trees -- far off in the jungles.
