Synopsis
Adapted from the Republic Picture movie of the same name.
Major Drum has been sent to capture a young outlaw named Whit Lacey.

Indexer Notes

The splashpage is drawn from movie photos, and it doesn't looks like the work on the rest of the story, which has a resemblance to Lee Sherman's signed stories in #19 and 21. The craftmanship is such that it could in fact have been done by just anybody with no skill at all, so Lee is not certain, but the nearest possible.
