The big guns of American artillerymen had landed during the day and were firing into Untingalu village where Japanese machinegun fire had that morning turned back an attack by a small unit of American troops who slid toward shore in rubber boats. Having gone through that bath of bullets and blood it was a great satisfaction to watch our heavy shells wham into the area, churning up dirt and trees. . Because of that desperate attack our unit had been driven back to the sea and instead of being the first to land it was noon before I finally made the landing with the troops at Arawe. The tops of many coconut trees were blown off, others knocked down and some broken off from heavy gunfire our boys threw at the enemy during the day. Brig. Gen. Julian Cunningham, one of the senior officers in the task force, told me the first day's objective/ seizure of Pilelo island and Arawe peninsula, was accomplished in five hours. Sitting on a log under a coconut tree, Cunningham greeted Captain Bill Laird of Dallas, Tex., whose job it was to seize Pilelo. Laird, his clothing torn and dirty, saluted and said: "Mission accomplished, sir. We killed 15 of the enemy for the loss of one man." The captain reported no radio station had been found and resistance was at a minimum. Now and then the crackling of machine guns broke the stillness and everyone was a little jumpy.

NEA SERVICB, CHAPTER XII T5EDLAW, with a bewildered •*•*• look, submitted to be led into the room. A man lay there, on n truckle-bed, and William Swldger stood at the bedside. ''Too late!" murmured the old man, looking wistfully into the Chemist's face; and the tears stole down his cheeks. "That's what I say, father," interposed his son in a low voice. Redlaw paused at the bedside, and looked down on the figure that was stretched upon the mattress. It was that of n man, who should have been in the vigor of his life, but on whom it was not likely the sun would ever shine again. The vices of his forty or fifty years' career had so branded him, that, in comparison with their effects upon his face, the heavy hand of Time upon the old man's face who watched him had been merciful and beautifying. "Who is this?" asked the Chemist, looking around. "My son George, Mr. Redlaw,' said the old man, wringing his hands. "My eldest son, George who was more his mother's pride than all the rest!" Redlaw's eyes wandered from the old man's gray head, as he laid it down upon the bed, to the person who had recognized him, anc who had kept aloof, in the remot est corner of the room. He seemed to be about his own age; and al though he knew no such hopeless ly decayed and broken man as h< appeared to be, there was some thing in the turn of his figure, a he stoojj with his back toward him and now went out at the door that made him pass his hand un easily across his brow. * * f f4|l l ATHER!'' 1 njurmured the sic' +• man, rallywi| a yttle from hi*, s'.upor. 'My boy! My son George!" said Id Philip. "You spoke, just now, of rny icing mother's favorite, long ago. t's a dreadful thing to think now, f long ago!" "No, no, no," returned the old man. "Think of it. Don't say it's dreadful. It's not dreadful to me, my son." "It cuts you to the heart, fa- her." For the old man's tears were falling on him. Yes, yes," said Philip, "so it does; but it does me good. It's a heavy sorrow to think of that ime, but it does me good, George. Oh, think of it too, think of it too, and your heart will be softened more and more!" "Father!" said the man upon .he bed, "I am dying, I know. '. am so far gone, that I can hardly speak, even of what my mind most runs on. Is there any hope for me beyond this bed?" "There is hope," returned the old man, "for all who are softened and penitent. There is hope for all such. Oh!" he exclaimed, clasping his hands and looking up, "I was thankful, only yesterday, that I could remember this un^ happy son when he was an innocent child. ' But what a comfort it is, now, to think that even God himself has that remembrance of him!" "My breath I kindly over him, "It's Mr, Red- law." \ "I thought I had dreamed of him. Ask him to come here." * * * r THE Chemist, whiter than the dying v man, appeared before him. Obedient to the motion oi. his hand, he sat upon the bed. "It has been so ripped up, tonight, Sir," said the sick man, laying his hand upon his heart, with a look in which the mute, imploring agony of his condition was concentrated, "by the sight of my poor old father, and the thought of all the trouble I h.ave been the cause of, and all the wrong and sorrow lying at my door, that—" Was it the extremity to which he had come, or was it the dawning of another change, that made him stop?

R. Stead- Men returning from the firing line as reinforcements arrived dug foxholes and slit trenches in anticipation of Japanese bombers at nightfall. Since returning to headquarters I have been told that is just what happened, but little damage was done. Capt. Edward Wright, of Dallas, who led the men in rubber boats and himself tried desperately twice to land, was blue when I left him. You can't cheer up a man who has seen his men fall in battle. Wright told me his outfit was to be reinforced and guns and ammunition, were on the way. He said he planned to make promotions in the field for .officers who were killed in the attempted landing. With no typewriter, no rations, borrowed clothes and, worst of all, no glasses or communcations, I talked it over with Wright and decided to' leave New Britain. My equipment was at the bottom of the sea. Captain Harold Halter, of Viena, 111., our field press relations officer, was ordered back aft| er a Japanese bullet creased his shoulder. Halter went into battle with the men in the rubber- boats and was largely responsible for bringing one of the boats back. It was 7 o'clock and darkness was just claiming the jungle when Prophet Oklahoma City — When Floyd Farley, golf pro, heard that his boyhood friend, Charley Weisner, had a destroyer torpedoed from under him last October, he wasn't worried. • '• "Why," said Farley, "he'll show | up somewhere in a day or two, asking for a hamburger." The other night came a knock at Farley's door.- There stood Charley.

Redlaw could not reply by any word; for when he saw that fatal sign he knew so well now, of the wandering hand upon the forehead, his voice died at his lips. But he made some indication of assent.
