This Treasure Chest comic was originally sourced from The Catholic University of America Archives. I have cropped, cleaned up and enhanced it using some or all of the following: XnView for Windows (great freeware program), MS Paint and Office 2010. When the Archive pages are of poor quality, which averages about 3-4 pages a comic, I have replaced with pages from my collection, providing I have a copy that will not be damaged due to scanning.

Tests are done and the ship is completed, but Dr. Ney is not allowed to travel in his own ship. His life is much too valuable to be risked on this first flight.
