Storyline

The Frontier Marshals are after a gang of horse thieves who communicate with short wave radio. When the Marshal's identity becomes known, the gang heads for the border with the horses. Having been captured by the gang, Art and Bill secretly switch on the radio and sing a song giving landmarks as to their location hoping Lee is listening at the other end.
