THE APE-MAN'S STRATEGY ~ 1933.02.12
the high priest commanded Tarzan to plunge into the river of crocodiles,
the ape-man gave no sign of understanding. Von Harben was summoned from
the barge of the pharaoh's daughter to act as interpreter.
A plan flashed through the ape-man's mind as he learned of the test
he faced. Borrowing Von Harben's knife, he cut down from the tree the crocodile
he had killed. From head to foot, he covered himself with the oil of the
saurian. Through the skin he cut holes at equal intervals.
Into these, he inserted the fibre of a vine. He fitted the skin about
him and laced it up with the vine-fibre until only his arms were free.
Then uttering the blood-freezing cry of the crocodile Tarzan dove full
into the stream of man-eating crocodiles.
