The Yellow Scourge

36049348-June_1934

In a naval escapade spanning coastal California to the Panama Canal, Operator 5 tackles a most cunning adversary–Chief secret agent of the Yellow Empire, Kara Vizna, the most dangerous, and most beautiful, secret agent alive.

The Asian Pacific Empire has demanded the surrender of the U.S. Pacific Fleets. Strike first and declare war afterward is their devilish strategy–counterfeiting American vessels to make it seem that the U.S. has instigated the attacks. Only Jimmy Christopher, known in the Intelligence department as Operator 5, has the wherewithal to defeat this devious reign of terror.

March Of The Flame Marauders

 

36048707-April_1935

Jimmy Christopher — known to a few as Operator 5 of the Secret Service — had forseen the dark day when oil, the black blood of commerce, would be exhausted. Now it was needed desperately to fuel American airplanes, tanks and battleships; it was as essential as men or arms in our battle to the death with a greedy foreign power which had learned our grim secret and was determined to conquer us…

While the forces of defense clamor loudly for oil; while the life of a nation is paralyzed for the lack of it, skilled saboteurs, insidious agents of the enemy wantonly destroy our small, precious remaining store! What strategem — where the leaders of the nation are plunged in despair –can Jimmy Christopher evolve to save his native land from slavery and utter doom?

I am sure this illustration accompanied a story titled “The Yank Frogman Who Single-Handedly Destroyed Hitler’s Favorite Waffle Place” or some such, but I don’t actually know where it is from. Heritage Auctions unhelpfully lists this as “Men’s Adventure Magazine illustration”. If anyone knows which magazine it is from, and especially the name of the illustrated story, I would be most grateful.
