They were stubby Gnnmmn fighters with distinctive square wing tips. The carriers nHist he in fairly close by this time, Later, we lay to and several marines dived into the lharky waters. A non-com told them they might be court- martialed if they were not eaten by the sharks. "What do we care?" said one of the Marines. "We're going in the first wave on Guadalcanal, anyhow." That was certainly A tough, Marine-like slant on the situation. 1 was told that the Guadalcanal beach-head is to be divided into two halves; of these, A and B companies, of our ship, will land on the right half; and a group from another ship on the left half. Through the strip of beach seized by these units, our following troops will penetrate. Capt. Gordon Gale, brilliant young executive officer, talked about these plans to the officers before lunch, in the furnace-like wnrd room. There were maps on one wall, behind a blackboard, showing the coast of Guadalcanal and the beach-head we are to take. There were none of Tulagi, the other initial objective of the Marines. I inquired about this and found out that Tulagi is to be taken "He carefully honed a huge bolo knife." by Marine Raiders, with other troops in support of them. In the afternoon, 1 watched a group of Marines cleaning their mortars and light machine guns on the forward deck. The lads were taking almost motherly care with the weapons. Some of the boys were sharpening bayonets, a universal pastime on the ship. I saw one with a huge bolo knife, which he was carefully preparing. Some of the lads had fashioned home-made hlack|acks-canvas sacks containing lead balls, for "infighting." SATURDAY, AUGUST 1-At breakfast this morning, the conversation revolved about a favorite topic-home. FUNNY BUSINESS couyrisht.^848. by King FetturM Syndicate. Inc.

I saw Col. Hunt on the wing of ihc bridge. "These boys are anxious to get into the scrap," he said. "They'll fight." "If it works out, I'll have a good story," I said. The colonel looked at me Tcvclly, and tight little lines creased the sides of his mouth. "It's got to work out," he said.
