Q Glrip intn the Zfnterinr nf Qfrica
N a bright summer morning in 1927 there was a lot of ex-
citement in the Summers' home. VVhat was all this excite-
ment? Jack Summers and his brother, James Summers,
""x-qvalffgggg were going on a strange journey. Yes, they were going to
f y Africa with ProfessorbHandel.
A That evening they took the 9:45 train to New York and the next
morning they were on a boat bound for Africa. They were onthe boat
about one week when they passed through the Strait of Gibraltar and
then sailed through the blue lVIediterranean. They passed through the
Suez Canal, the Red Sea, the Strait of Babel Mandel, and the Gulf of
Aden, until at last they came to Zanzibar.
They had already sent a wireless ahead for guides and supplies, and
the next morning they were on their Way into the wilds of Tanganyika
The next day Professor Handel started his scientific work by look-
ing for new shrubs and plants.
A few days later they came to the shores of Lake Ricwa. In the
following Clays Professor Handel discovered some new kind of water
plants, and Jack and Iimlwentuhunting, sometimes without much luck.
But what was all thlsexcitement among their guides? A few days
ago the chief guide reported that a herd of buffaloes had ruined a neigh-
boring village and were making straight toward their camp in a stampede.
Professor Handel immediately ordered them to get everything ready
to move, but just then out of the surrounding forest a herd of buffaloes
came charging at them.
Jim cocked his gun and fired, and the leading buffalo fell, but just
then everything went black for Jim. Bang! bang! Went the Professor's
double-barrel riile, and another buffalo fell. Then a buffalo came charging
at Jack. Jack shot, but missed. He saw he could not reload in time, so
he threw his rifle aside and whipped out his automatic and fired five shots
in quick succession, and just then he fainted. When he recovered Pro-
