Also titled: “The Mystery of Dyerville Part 4”
Harley Dam is trembling and rumbling. The Dyerville City Commissioner, Lois Lane and Clark Kent run to the dam’s lakeshore to avoid being hurt by the quakes. The commissioner then reads the latest message from the Yellow Mask. The Mask may change his mind and destroy the city sooner. Promising to return to Dyerville in time for the meeting, Clark says that he wants to investigate things at the dam while the commissioner and Lois return to the town. Kent believes the torpedo attack was meant to scare the citizens of Dyerville and show them the extent of the Yellow Mask’s abilities.
Clark then asks what the flood’s route would be if Harley Dam broke. The flood waters would go into Jefferson Gorge and down into a nearby valley before destroying Dyerville. If the gorge is blocked, the floodwaters would change direction and go into an old river bed. The Dyerville City Council now begins its emergency meeting. They have voted against giving the Yellow Mask one million dollars. The Yellow Mask will blow up the dam and flood the city now. Lois Lane then announces that Harley Dam has exploded. In the panicked confusion, Clark Kent resumes his identity of Superman and flies at great speeds to Jefferson Gorge. Upon arriving at the gorge, Superman repeatedly tears some rock from the gorge to block the water’s path. The city of Dyerville is saved thanks to Superman.
Two hours after the town has been saved, Lois Lane telegraphs the Dyerville story to Perry White. She is happy that the city of Dyerville is safe and that she scooped Clark Kent on the story. Clark too is happy that the city wasn’t destroyed, but he also thinks of the Yellow Mask.
