Clash of the Wolves

1   
The High Sierras -
whose sheltering paradise
of green, changes to an
inferno of terror - -
when nature puts on her
garments of red.

2
A half-breed wolf -
combining the savage
strength of the wild,
with the intelligence of 
his dog ancestry.

	. . . Rin-tin-tin.

3
So skillful and daring
that the Rangers had 
given him the Spanish
name for wolf - Lobo.

4
Lobo's mate, with the
mother instinct of the
wild, guarding her wolf
puppies against the 
oncoming flames.

	. . . Nanette.

5
Far below the timber 
line lay the great
American Desert - -
here Lobo and his 
pack found refuge.

6
Lobo, in search of 
     prey.

7
Dave Weston, a 
lonely tenderfoot
prospecting for borax.

	. . . Charles Farrell.

8
May Barstowe, daughter
of a wealthy ranch
owner, who does not
share her father's
dislike for the lonely
    prospector.

	. . . June Marlowe.

9
Cupid's assistant -
Alkali Bill, teamster
on Barstowe's ranch.

	. . . Heinie Conklin.

10
"Oh! D-a-a-ave!"

11
"Oh! D-a-a-ave!"

12
"Be very careful of
 the cake - I want
 to surprise Dave."

13
"I think it's borax -
 let's take it to town 
 and have it tested."

14
The hunger call to the 
rest of the famished 
        pack.

15
"That sounds like 
     wolves!"

16
"It can't be wolves - there 
 hain't been none in this
 desert for twenty years!"

17
"The fire in the mountains
 may have driven them 
 down, in search of food."

18
The Law of the pack -
death to the wounded 
      wolf.

19
WOLVES!

20
"WOLVES! WOLVES!"

21
WOLVES! WOLVES! WOLVES!
WOLVES! WOLVES! WOLVES!

22
"The desert is full 
 of wolves - I saw
 thousands of them!"

23
"Forty-three of 'em
   jumped on my 
       neck."

24
"Wolves!"

25 [small type]
"Wolves!"

26
Sam Barstowe, May's
father, who does not 
approve of the tenderfoot's
attention to his daughter.

	. . . William Walling.

27
"We were attacked by
 wolves - if it weren't
 for Dave, we might
 have been killed."

28
"Round up the cattle -
 or the wolves will get
        'em!"

29
Wm. "Borax" Horton, posing
as a chemist, but in 
reality, a claim jumper.

	. . . Pat Hartigan.

30
"I'm just out of testing 
fluid - - you'll have to 
wait a couple of weeks 
   for the report."

31
"By the way, Dave,
 where did you find 
    this stuff?"

32
"Out there in the desert -
 maybe near - maybe far -
      who knows?"

33
Barstowe and his men,
while rounding up the 
cattle, found traces
everywhere of Lobo's
cunning leadership.

34
"If we catch the leader,
 we can break up that 
      wolf pack."

35
But catching a leader
as daring as Lobo -
was another matter.

36
With the cunning that 
had already made him 
famous, Lobo singles 
out one steer at a 
time for attack.

37
"Quick! The wolves are 
 down in the canyon."

38
To protect the pack 
from the revengeful 
ranchers, Lobo draws 
the fire on himself.

39
"I know that wolf! That's
    the famous Lobo!"

40
"I'll give one hundred 
 dollars for his hide!"

41
His foot, pierced 
by a cactus thorn.

42
Unable to extract
the thorn, Lobo seeks
the help of his mate.

43
Knowing the first 
sign of weakness 
means death - Lobo
hides his injury.

44
As the wound grew 
worse, fear of his 
brother wolves, drove 
Lobo into the open -
to die alone.

45
To Lobo, man was
his greatest enemy -
he expected no mercy.

46
"Lobo!"

47
Wondering why Lobo 
had deserted her and 
the puppies, the faithful
mate waited in vain, 
for his return.

48
"Steady, Lobo, I'm
 only trying to stop 
    the pain."

49
"I guess you're a tender-
 foot, too, in this cactus 
 country - you ought to 
      wear boots!"

50
Even as, ages ago,
the first wolf surrendered 
to man's love, so Lobo
forsook the wild and
became Dave's dog.

51
"You can't fool those 
 horses - they know
   he's a wolf."

52
"Don't shoot, Bill -
 he's tame, now!"

53
"You'd better get rid of
 that wolf - he'll scare
 every horse in town."

54
"Yes, and if anybody
 recognizes him, they'll
      shoot him."

55
"I haven't studied a
 full detective course,
     for nothin'."

56
"We're gettin' by great -
 nobody recognizes him!"

57
"That's fine borax -
 did you stake out 
   your claim?"

58
"That's Lobo and I'm 
  goin' to get that 
      reward!"

59
"Take him out of town 
 quick Dave - I'll see 
     you tonight."

60
That night a sand
storm offered Dave 
an excuse to "accept"
Barstowe's unwilling
   hospitality.

61
"S-sh! Not so loud-
 father's in the next 
        room."

62
"Have you ever seen this 
 tenderfoot making love 
    to my daughter?"

63
"The storm's blown the 
  corral fence down."

64
"If I come back and find 
 them making love - 
   you're fired!"

65
"I'll give you a kiss, if
   you don't tell Dad."

66
"I want a kiss - like 
     Dave gets."

67
"I'm suspicious of Horton -
 I must post my claim -
 the storm will cover my
         tracks."

68
There was another 
on the trail - the
faithful mate, who tried
constantly, to win Lobo
back from civilization.

69
"I lost my partner in the 
 storm - I thought I was 
  following his tracks."

70
"Go find her - go
    find May."

71
After the storm had 
      lifted.

72
The command of his 
master to seek out
the girl is overcome 
by his desire for
revenge on Horton.

73
Under cover of 
  darkness.

74
"Something must have 
  happened to Dave!"

75
"Don't shoot! I've already
 filed Dave's claim in
 my name - - he must 
 not turn up alive - I'll
     follow Lobo!"

76
Following Lobo's tracks.

77
At a nearby water hole
with another canteen 
 from Dave's shack.

78
"Lobo! - Here Lobo!"

79
"That wolf attacked me!"

80
"Which way did he go?"

81
"Get on that horse!"

82
Wolf heart or human
heart are ever the same -
   when love rules.
