Synopsis for Sandra of the Secret Service: "The Resbian Affair, Part 5"
Sandra has stolen an airplane from the Resbian army, loaded the wounded Lorenz aboard it, and taken off. Speedy Resbian fighter planes pursue, but they have the same engines as the scout plane, so are no faster. Except one plane, flown by Resbia's leading air ace Major Gandy, has a special motor; he pulls ahead of the squadron and gains on the fugitive plane. His orders are to bring it down on this side of the border, so he's pressed for time. Gandy drops into attack position behind Sandra and opens fire, she evades with an Immelman turn, and returns fire, and with a lucky shot she disables Gandy's engine, forcing him down for a dead-stick landing. Before the remaining pursuers can catch up, Sandra flies into Gavonia.
At the royal palace, Sandra gets together with her friend Princess Yonda, and gives her a set of Resbian military secrets. The grateful nation of Gavonia showers Sandra with presents, and she then embarks for America. But aboard the passenger ship, a sinister figure watches her with cold hatred in his steely eyes.

In his laboratory, Dr. Occult runs a series of tests on the patient, learns very little, and eventually turns in for the night. Hours later, a face appears at the laboratory window: white, spectral, and leering enigmatically. The writhing, tossing patient lurches out of the bed and walks to the window, staring at the face. With no words spoken, he receives his orders. The man walks out of the lab, picking up a scalpel along the way, and staggers quietly to Occult's beadchamber, finds a form on the bed and attacks it with the scalpel.

While they're away, Saunders, unsupervised, manages to bust apart the chair to which he's tied, and get himself loose. He breaks out thru the side of the plank cabin, but it faces a crevasse. He gets as far down the crack as he can before the pursuing trigger man opens fire.
The next morning Merritt flies alone, in his Bumblebee, back to the extinct volcano, where he sees a very strange sight: in the vast stationary vapor cloud above the crater, massive shapes are churning thru the fog like a herd of aquatic animals.
