Now I'm on the edge of my seat. It was criminal of them to have us kids wait a whole week for the next chapter, but it was fun.

I'm looking forward to the final episode and alas find out who that villain Don Del Oro really is.

So it was Pablo all along? Well, its the pits for him, which he deserved.

And Zorro (Don Diego) goes on to work his good deeds elsewhere.

That was exciting week to week reading Ken and most of all it brought back great memories of a time gone by.

 

What are we in store for next week?

King of the Royal Mounted.... Chapter one ... Manhunt.

As our serial opens, a group of men gather around a tank of water containing a model ship. A small metal object is dropped into the water,attaches itself to the ship and explodes. We learn that this is a magnetic mine which the enemy intends to use to destroy the British blockade. The formula to make the mines contains compound X and is mined in Canada for peaceful purposes, a cure for polio.

Wade Garson is ordered to meet Kettler in Canada and head a spy ring to obtain compound X. After being brought in by submarine,Garson picks up Kettler in a speed boat. They are spotted by a Mountie patrol. Sgt. King is notified and gives chase,but Garson and Kettler escape. Later King reports to Inspector King[his dad] with orders to arrest Garson. Garson is believed to be hiding in The Valley Of Hunted Men, a stronghold for outlaws. Meanwhile Garson contacts Matt Crandall,a co-owner of a mine with Tom Merritt that supplies the compound X. Crandall and Garson are planning to ship more of the compound when they are discovered by Tom Merritt. Merritt threatens to call the Mounties and is killed by Garson. The Mounties arrive and learn that Garson has killed Merritt and escaped. Sgt. King and his detail locate Garson in The Valley of Hunted Men.A battle starts, with Garson escaping into the woods with King in pursuit. Coming to a deep gorge, Garson starts a fire between him and King,removes a foot bridge,leaving King trapped on the other side.The fire grows in intensity,surrounds Sgt. King and..........!

It's good to be on a roll again at the Saturday matinee.

This time in the presence of the King of the Royal Mounted.

I will picture in my mind the star Allan Lane as Sgt. King, going through the trials and tribulations brought on our hero each week.

 

Although I read somewhere that Allan 'Rocky' Lane was sort of a bully on some of the sets of his movies?
