Then it's off the desert in cavalry uniforms for an Indian raid, and here Col Blitz hires thugs to grab the statue. Rex's cunning, dodging, and bulldog attacks avert a massacre and save the day.

On behalf of the government, Dr. Kirby, an old friend, asks for Rex's help finding a secret test satellite that fell into the Pacific.

But two thugs grab the satellite to ransom it back. Rex fakes being shot to get the drop on them. The satellite is safe, and the natives get a generous donation of motor boats.
