THE APE-MAN AND THE PRINCESS ~ 1933.04.09
As numa prepared to spring, Tarzan turned swiftly -- the princess in his arms. Knowing the beast would be confused by the flying draperies Tarzan whirled the princess around in the lion's face. Taking swift advantage of numa's hesitation, the ape-man leaped for the trees. 

Then the lion sprang. . .  and caught Nikotris' draperies. But Tarzan wrenched her free and dashed up the branch. Above him he heard the challenging cry of Ptok the great ape. Answering the challenge with mocking taunts Tarzan swiftly ripped shreds from the garments of the princess. Improvising a rope, he tied her to the trunk of the tree so he would be free for combat. Then he swung himself in front of her, and stood defiant, daring the great ape to come on. 

As Ptok leaped for him, Tarzan prepared to spring. He dove under the great ape, intending to seize his hind leg. . . but missed. Ptok landed on the branch and in a moment was tearing at the bonds by which Nikotris was held.
