Synopsis for "Espionage, starring Black X: General Hoch, the Revolutionist"
Circa probably 1938-Feb: Colonel Baldridge in Panama has trouble with an insurrection, fomented by foreign spies: 2 jodphur-wearing aviators (one looks Japanese, one white one probably named Otto Bix) plus General Hoch. By being in the right NYC travel agency office at the right moment, Black X lucks into seeing General Hoch the Revolutionist booking passage to Panama on the S.S. Granada, and buys the same tickets for himself and Batu. On the voyage Black X snoops thru Hoch's crated-but-not-dismantled airplane in the ship's hold; it's equipped with pre-loaded machine guns. As usual the bad guys get the drop on Black X; a few days later they're in Hoch's jungle hideout (ten miles from Juarez). Hoch figures on becoming Dictator of Panama in under a month. Next day a USAAF scout biplane (? a Curtiss Jenny ?) is shot down by Hoch's unwieldy-looking airplane; that night Black X escapes in some undescribed manner from the jailhouse hut, then subdues the Japanese-looking spy pilot, and sends a radio message to the U.S. garrison at Panama City. A 2-man biplane comes to help Black X, but Bix & Hoch man a machine gun and hold it at bay, until Black X sneaks up on their position, the "Black X's guns bark death to the surprised revolutionists." One rescue later, he's back in WDC and Panama is again at peace. Once again, the wrap-up takes place "a few weeks later, in Black X's favorite restaurant in Washington."
