That's one of the blessings of working in an essential industry—I don't have to take lime off to help the wife clean house I" Plunging into the steaming bell that the maps call Guadalcanal, United States Marines last August opened as fierce ami primitive a struggle for victory as military men have ever known. They fought the Japs in the jungle from tree to tree and from river to ridge. They fought them with bayonets and rifles, knives and bare knuckles- with cannon and tanks and planes. In the first wave of these fighting leathernecks was a 26-year-old war correspondent, Richard Tregaskis, who roamed the Guadalcanal battle lines for seven weeks, keeping a diary that presents an amazing picture of the great events and tiny details that form the pattern of our Pacific war. A Harvard graduate, six feet seven inches tall, and battle-toughened by months of service with Navy task forces, Tregaskis was accepted by the Marines as one of their own. To a man, they, echoed the words of Lieut. Comm. John S. Thach, who called the young International News Service correspondent "one of the fightin'est, eat- West men I ever saw." Tregaskis set up his typewriter and began the final chapters of his diary in the bomber that carried him from Guadalcanal for a brief rest. He finished it at Pearl Har- "... another Jap for mel" "Soon we will know where we are headed-where we may die.. bar, and went back to cover the Guadalcanal front again. Now let the diary, in these extracts, tell its own dramatic story of American courage and fighting power. By RICHARD TREGASKIS O N BOARD A TRANSPORT IN THE PACIFIC Sunday, July 26-This morning, it being Sunday, there were services on the port promennde. After the services, ironically, many of the men turned to the essential job of loading machine gun belts. One of them kept time with the metallic clink of the belter: "One, two, three Draw lng . copyright. 1941. by Kin, Features Syndicate. I.e. T«t co DJ rri K ht, 1943. by Random Ho-u., Inc.

There were Marines everywhere, playing cards, studying tactics, or just lounging on chrome furniture thnt had recently been occupied by civilians on luxury cruises. I went back' on deck, satisfied that this was a peaceful, la?.y day of rest. Everyone seemed relaxed, despite the fact that soon we will know where we are headed; where, possibly, we may die on a Japanese beach-head.
