THE WOMAN AND THE APE ~ 1933.04.02
When Tarzan heard the cry of the princess, he raced to save her. The great ape, Ptok, who had carried Nikotris high into the trees, saw the ape-man coming. As Tarzan swung after him, Ptok, raced with his victim to the topmost branches. 

There the great ape lifted the princess high above his head and hurled her from him. But even as she fell, Tarzan caught a branch of the tree and swung toward her. He grasped her with one arm but the branch broke and the ape-man and princess whirled through the air in a swift crashing descent. Tarzan, ape-like, reached out and broke their fall as he caught hold of a long hanging vine. 

But as he swung safely with the princess in one arm, above him he heard the challenging battle cry of Ptok. Swiftly Tarzan leaped to the ground, but even as he landed, close in back of him came the wild roar of numa, the lion, about to attack his prey.
