Indexer Notes

Gaylord Du Bois (rhymes with "to voice") writer credit per page 91, Gaylord Du Bois's Account Books Sorted by Title compiled from the original account books by Randall W. Scott (Michigan State University Libraries 1985) 203 leaves ; 28 cm. -- Photocopy of computer printout. -- Call no.: PN6727.D77 A2S35 1985, which states: "Little Beaver's Chariot Race. text for Red Ryder Comics #67. Sent August 16, 1948."

Bill Ely art i.d. by David Porta, September 2021.

A typical Du Bois identifier here is the building of a device, and the parts that are involved. A plot that involves engineering: in this case, the wheels of broken bicycles, used for building a chariot; and the coyote tail, dangled in front of the ram's snout, from a string off a stick held by the driver, to make the ram charge.

Well water struck on Andy Packer's dry claim draws a crowd from the new gold camp in Crowfoot Canyon.
Characters
Andy Packer; prospectors (pictured, some with dialogue); Sandy Rivers; Ted Lucas (as Ted); Billy Haynes (pictured only); Silk Selden; Sandy's horse (pictured only); Nipper (Andy's horse); three Selden men (pictured only); Oakey (of Selden's men)
Synopsis
Sandy rides toward home to bring grub for the boys at the claim where they have just found color. She stops to check on Nipper in his sling and replenish his hay rack and water. Meanwhile, Selden having observed the kids' strike, abducts the boys. Manacled with Andy and Billy by Selden and gang, Ted writes a note threatening Selden if he doesn't set the boys free, signing it "The Kiyotee," and sending it floating up outside the cabin through the chimney, pushed aloft by the hot air of the fire in the hearth.
Keywords
child abduction; prospecting

Indexer Notes

Gaylord Du Bois (rhymes with "to voice") writer credit per page 91, Gaylord Du Bois's Account Books Sorted by Title compiled from the original account books by Randall W. Scott (Michigan State University Libraries 1985) 203 leaves ; 28 cm. -- Photocopy of computer printout. -- Call no.: PN6727.D77 A2S35 1985, which states: "The Kyotee Kids. 6p. For Red Ryder Comics #68. Sent July 14, 1948."

Averaging 7 panels per page: 6-8-7-7-7-7. Signed Harry Parks in the last panel. Page code (or job number) on second page of story, "R.R.C. #68 p.28," which is the 28th page of the comic, excluding the cover page (so, 28th page of newsprint).

Didacticism, a Du Bois identifier, appears here in: the engineering of the sling and manger for Nipper, a building project from last episode; the panning of gold using water to wash the silt from the pan, leaving the heavier gold at the pan's bottom; and the physics of hot air rising.
