More Fun Comics #34 is an issue of the series More Fun Comics (Volume 1) with a cover date of August, 1938.

Synopsis for Sandra of the Secret Service: "The River Boat Racketeers, Part 3 (of 4)"

Tied up in the next room of the shack in the swamp, Sandra is able to eavesdrop as the kidnappers viciously work over their "pal" the ex-gangster. He does enough screaming to cover the noise of Sandra struggling her way loose from her ropes and escaping out the window. In the swamp she very luckily finds an old canoe and gets a good head start before the bad guys notice her absence, and start up their river boat in pursuit. She makes it back to her car, and drives away, but is quickly pursued by the gangsters, in their car. They've brought their kidnap victim with them.

In the darkness, on the twisty swamp roads, Sandra outmaneuvers the bad guys, and is soon following them, the dopes.

Synopsis for Buccaneer: "Captain Klaugh"

In a barroom fistfight, Dennis Stone humiliates an aggressive bully, and makes an awkward initial impression on his new business partner, Captain Klaugh. Klaugh's left hand is an edgy-looking metal prosthetic. He's a slave-runner, and so was his late partner Captain Slighe. Stone wants no part of his business. Klaugh reminds him that his crew's incomes depend on their business, and challenges him to consult with his own crew about this matter. Mightily indignant, Stone vows to do just that.

He assembles the Serpent's crew on the main deck and puts the question to his men. They withdraw below-decks to talk it over.

Synopsis for Cap'n Jerry: "The Shipwrecked Gamblers"

Jerry and Charlie have gone into the pearl business, buying pearls from the Island People. Two thugs show up in a lifeboat, with no ship's name on it. These castaways cheat at dice, and swindle the local divers and fishermen out of some of their stuff. When Cap'n Jerry confronts them about it, they produce handguns, steal Jerry's pearls, and retreat to an old stone building. This place turns out to be the local people's abandoned old jail, and it's abandoned for a reason: there's a gaping hole in the roof. While the Chief and his guys hold the villains' attention, Cap'n Jerry drops in onto one of the gunmen, then Charlie drops a rock onto the head of the other.

But then the natives want to drag out the thugs for a gruesome execution, so now Jerry and Charlie have to fend off their own erstwhile allies at gunpoint. As the situation deteriorates, a British gunboat shows up and a detachment of riflemen comes ashore, looking for these very same thugs. They're wanted for murder and it's expected that they'll hang.

Synopsis for Jack Woods: "Last Chance Gulch, Part 5 (of 6)"

Jack and his men herd the formerly scattered cattle back to their owner's ranch. The owner, Hank Wilson, and his men, meets them out on the trail, and accuses THEM of being the rustlers. Tempers are hot but no shooting breaks out, and the owner herds his herd back home. Jack and Chuck think that's a mistake, because Vasquez and his men are still in the area, looking for those same cattle. That evening Wilson and his outfit set up camp near the town, and they spot that as an even bigger mistake.

That night Vasquez returns with about a hundred pistoleros, and encircles the town. Jack and his riders hit them from one side, break through, and ride into the town, where Wilson and his cowhands are also. A lot of gunfire is exchanged, then Jack and a small squad charge out, and again break the circle, while Jack shoots Vasquez dead in the chest. The leaderless bandits retreat.

Jack's cattle, however, are still missing.
