WATERS OF DEATH ~ 1933.02.05
On her way to the test of Tarzan's kinship with the sacred beasts, thr Princess Nikotris made festival in her royal barge. And Erich Von Harben quickly learned the Egyptian words of love she taught him. In the desert, on the highway, swarmed the procession. 

But suddenly the leader called a halt as he stared at something in the sand. The high priest was summoned and kneeling he saw a holy thing. . . a sacred golden beetle. Lest the golden beetle be crushed, the whole procession was ordered to march half a mile out of its way toward the river.

A trumpeter blew the signal. Pharaoh himself was waiting in his barge when the procession finally reached the river bank. And then Tarzan was brought forth by the high priest. When Von Harben saw it was Tarzan who was to be sacrificed to the crocodiles, he pleaded with the princess to save his friend. But even as Von Harben pleaded, the high priest gave the signal for Tarzan to plunge into the churning waters of death.
