It, was 10 in the evening when the sub left port. She continued on the surface all next day at a speed of twelve knots. This risk of discovery was taken because the ele- ment.of time was of the utmost importance. The men had "It's your baby," said Clark. a long way to go and not much time to get there. Clark tohl Courtney, ranking Commando on the trip, something of the problems facing them.

"^/HAT the Allied air forces have done at Guadalcanal, at Buna, at Lae, at Rabaul everywhere in the Southwest Pacific is traceable to plans laid by kindly-eyed, bristle-haired Lieut.- oen. George C. Kenney, General MacArthur's air arm. Now 54, the five-foot, six-inch Nova Scotia- Oorn general worked up from buck private in the years since 1917 He's intensely practical, believes in hitting the foe hard in one place, tells his men in a warm, rumbling voice, "Deception is the trick Mystify, cross the enemy up. Above all, don't get >n a groove." Keimvy favors medium bombers and skip bombing over torpedo planes and dive bombers. The Bismarck Sea battle m wfich W? flyers destroyed an entire Jap fleet with' skip bombing tactics makes him look right, at least for his particular problems. Kenney's offices are part of MacArthur's GHQ. They pop uTon on* another unannounced. He's a technical man as well as an airman; besides the Air Service' Engineering School, Kenney studied at M. J. T His mathematical background lends sincerity to his remark: "The difficult we do unmediately; UiS impossible take? a little longer." ""." *«••«
