Garth and his men drove after Jones in cars, and followed on foot when the boy transferred to the top of a passing [[circus train]]. The man in the fedora confronted Jones who backed away and fell through the roof of the [[lion]] car. Garth helped Jones escape the dangerous situation but after the scout declared that the artifact should be in a museum he retreated into [[Doctor Fantasy's Magic Caboose]]. Garth directed his men to make sure Jones couldn't double back and entered the coach in time to see Jones hide inside a magic box. Knowing he had the boy trapped, Garth urged him to come out when the box suddenly collapsed with no-one inside. Garth rushed to the back of the train to see Jones flee home. He cursed in frustration but allowed himself a small grin as he watched the kid escape.<ref name="LC" />

Following his experience with Garth and his [[Fedora's Gang|grave robbing gang]], Indy drew a comic book relating his attempt to retrieve the Cross. During his early days at the [[Sorbonne]], Jones possibly lend it to [[René Emile Belloq]], who ended up becoming one of his rivals. By [[1938]], the comic was in possession of [[Belloq's son]], who had found it among his deceased father's old stuff.<ref name="TGAoIJ">''[[The Greatest Adventures of Indiana Jones]]''</ref>
