RELEASE NO. 4 Guadalcanal Diary Based! on the Book-of-the-Month BY RICHARD ILLUSTRATIONS BY I B, HAZELTON "I told you we were digging this fox hole too deep!" SIDE GLANCES By Galbraith "It didn't sound like an easy-or safe—terrain to assault." "He thought they'd be praying "One lad was doing a war dance, a lowel for a loin-cloth." S UNDAY, AUGUST 2-Licut. Evard J. Snell, who is in charge of iiiudi of the paper-work involved in this invasion effort, told me that we will probably be faced by very strong Jap forces at Guadalcanal. Probably one in three of our boats, he estimated, will reach shore in our attack attempt. Probably three out of four of us svill survive the assault, he said. When I saw the memorandum which had been prepared on the terrain which we are to take, 1 could understand his high estimate of casualties. "From our landing point," suid the memorandum, "our forces will have to cross a stream (the llu) about 20 feet wide .,. On the south bank is high grass which affords possible positions for machine guns and riflemen ... Another river which our forces will have to cross is the Tenaru." That did not sound like an casy-or safe-terrain. There was a meeting for platoon leaders in the wardroom this afternoon, b'or two hours, the roomful of men sweated and steamed while orders were read. Then Col. Maxwell rose to deliver the final pep talk. "There's only one thing to do," he concluded, "Get out of the boat, say 'Follow me,' and run like hell." WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5-Thc clay of our landing is to be Friday, August 7. The /ero hour is not yet known. This morning at breakfast, Lieut. Cory said, "Two days more to go." And we all remarked that, amazingly, there arc no cases of jitters evident anywhere. THURSDAY, AUGUST 6-Dr. Malcolm V. Pratt, senior medical officer aboard, told me an amusing story this afternoon. "1 went below last night," he said, "expecting to find the kids praying. Instead, I found 'cm doing a native war dance. One of them had a towel for a Iwin cloth and a blacked face, and he was doing a cancan while an- anothcr beat out appropriate rytluns on a tomtom!" As the afternoon wore on, 1 saw Marines tying up their packs. Men currying armsful of black-cased hand grenades hurried tip ami down cnmpuniomv.iys. On deck, working parties were breaking out artillery ammunition. It was announced tonight that breakfast will be served at 4:30 A.M. U'c will reach our landing point at 6:20. The Zero hour has not yet been set but it will be somewhere near 8:30. Twelve hours to go ... (Continued tomorrow) Inc.
