As midnight approachs our skipper decides that the men below | might be wanting rest- and orders the squawkbox. silenced. A man telling me about that decision next day said, "They left us with Jap torpedo, planes closing in. We waited' for word and waited; The uncertainty was killing." Topside, if. was a beautiful night i except for the. Japanese. The moon silvered the whitecaps but unfortunately for us it silhouetted us as we made ;a twisting wake, a river of soap suds. You caught the enormity of our task force as the firing commenced on both sides. Suddenly to the starboard a cruiser brought 'down a Mitsubishi in flames. It burned on the water, lighting- the sky. . That made it a flaming beacon for marauding Japanese torpedo planes. The admiral is tired but he stands by. He has seen more action in the past three months than perhaps any other admiral in the same length of time in the Pacific — Marcus, Wake, Tarawa. He has fought off attack after attack. For a few minutes, the attack has ceased, Then it is on again. Our llth warning tonight is sounded. Part of our force opens fire. Rear Adm. Alfred E. Montgomery changes the course, turning the stern of our formation so that the Japanese will not get a broadside target. "I'm just too tried to give a damn." says one man. He flops on the steel deck and is dead away in five seconds. Exhaustion has won over fear. We open fire. Tracers- fill the heaven with strings of red, Our five-inchers speak right up with authority. The Japanese retire but other planes come in and circle our formation, waiting for a chance to come in. Now they're getting ready to close in from all sides, We could not keep track of them any longer. One drops its fish. We maneuver, wait and again are safe. Finally the moon dips below the horizon and it becomes darker. "It's still four hours until sunrise before we can see those devils and knock the Hell out of them," says a marine gunner. Eventually, exhausted men fall into their sacks after nearly 24 hours of continuous duty. *"""** irnigjfH&ftp, ^w«.WMU**ti-^=M«^-\~4.i" Turkish Baitt Could Tip Scales m«rout, and thtir utt by the Allttd airfare** would bring itr«4*fk ••Ikon Urgtti within HUNGARY CRIMIA Sevastopol BULGARIA • Aryan Karohitar Entrance of Turkey in war on side of Allies would open Dardanelles to Allied naval units, tuning off Axis lines of supply in the Black Sea to N«)s in Russia CODEC ANISE IS, New bases for Allied raids on the Balkans and German-held Russia would be available should Turkey join the war against the Axis.

That remains to-'be seen, but one thing is certain, -that month will make- the opening of the all-important 1944 political campaigns. ..,•'•' ' •" '.• Both major parties have selected January for the '44 campaign • kickoffs. The Republican National committee- will- meet in Chicago Jan-. 10-11 to pick the/ site and name the date of their convention. On Jam 22; the Democratic National committee will meet here for the same- purpose. In addition the Democrats have promised through National Chairman Frank c: Walker that, they will, at that time, hod one .or more "Jackson Day" banquet at t. • _i_ . , - . * . •. > which party spokesmen "the answers to a lot lions." will give of que'si LIFE'S'Uttto TROUBLES No seed to lie & I?S(J—toss-^ worry ^nd fret because CON-, STIPATION or GAS PRESSURE won't let yoij eteep.

Ambrose O'ConeU, vice chair :man of the committee, when ask:ed point blank if the fourth -term would be discussed, said' VI ddiibt it .very much." Political observers here are more positive than that. Although some Roosevelt backers may choose that time : to restate their allegiance, it is considered certain that the President himself or any one who can speak for him, will wait until the last minute to make his announcement. That's hot even very deep, dark strategy. The presidential race next year depends much on the tide of wan. For the President to make-a move in either direction too soon might mean only riding the crest of a wave that will be no more than a ^'ipple^when it reaches the beach next November. •; It ii that same faptor, some think, which may cause the Democrats to name the date^ of their convention as close to the election as possible — perhaps as late as September, In that also, they would have the advantage of gauging the tide of war at the latest date, ; with additional possibility that they could make political hay out of the declaration that any long drawn- out national campaign that would, hamper the war effort. As a matter of fact, except for the opportunities for pulse-feeling among the political leaders ' of both parties, the January sessions are not expected to reproduce any clues as to who the candidates wilt be. There is almost certain to be no such clue in the selection of com vention cities. While it sometimes happens that one potential candidate or another gains prestige through: selection of a 'convention city in one of his own strongholds; the determining factor this year is almost bound to be transportation. For that reason, observers here think it most likely that both parties will pick Chicago. There 'are several other cities still in 'the running for both conventions. Philadelphia has made a strong bid for the Democratic convention. Cleveland, Detroit and St. Louis also have been discussed, as possibilities. But Chicago still has Die edge in that it is not only geographically rigjit from a transportation standpoint, but it is believed that it caa best supply accomodtj- tions without disrupting its local war effort. In any event, the national campaigns will be in full sway before January is written off the calendar.

Hollywood By BOBBIN COONS Hollywood — Mr. Lester Alvin Burnelle took his old guilar down to Ihe headquarters of the musicians' union the other day, plucked out a few tunes, paid his $50, and got his card. Mr. Lester Alvin Bur- hetle, guitar-player, is now a member in good standing. But Lester Alvin—firned Smiley Burnette of the weslerns — was being modest, Inking along just a guitar. The fact is, Smiley is practically a one-man symphony orchestra, master of many instruments and wrestler with many more for a total (If you count his jewel-handled musical saw) of 52. ' "But I've practically give up the musical saw," he says. "It's out in my workshop now, and I'm using it as a saw." He and his wife are turning out toys for underprivileged children's Chrislmases — which is a good' use, if you ask me, for all musical saws. Smiley's musical leanings asserted themselves at an early age; even before his parents tried to give him lessons on piano and cornet. He also made conquests' in bizarre instrumental fields. When he was chief musician, handy man and sweeper-out at a little radio station in Tuscola, 111., he used the opportunity to demonstrate his assorted talents. Later, on tours, he used to play between 15 to 20 instruments in the course of one tune. But that, avers Smiley, is just show stuff. In pictures, now, he seldom plays anything besides accordion and guitar. It's at home in North Hollywood that the Burnette talents really quiver the air. Mrs. Burnette is tolerant, the three children either don't mind or are helpless, and the house is "far enough away" from neighbors. There Smiley can practice playing the. novachord with, towel over it, or five instruments at once, or take a turn at the glockenspiel or wrangle with vibr'a- harp, mandola, trumpets, xylophone, or mandolin. In his more bucolic moments he- can tear- into his ocarina, his musical pitchfork, his cowbells, or his tub fiddle — a home-made contrivance made from u tub. Neither Smiley's music nor his musical compositions (around 30: including "Deeper and Deeper," "Ridin 1 Down the Canyon," and "Lonesome Guitar) are aimed at What he calls the "mink and' monocle crowd." Neither are the movies in which, wearing sloppy clothes to make his 246. pounds look bulkier than they are, he has built his following. But they're what he likes.
