"Anti-aircraft guns thundered "Twenty-four Japs were knocked down by our fighters as they streaked for home." By Galbraith O ATURDAY, AUGUST 8, Cont.-As the Jap planes O roared in to attack our ships in the harbor, the tlulnder of the big anti-aircraft guns was augmented by the fierce rattling of smaller anti-aircraft weapons, and the whole sound swelled in a quick diapason until it scerned to swarm into your ears. Suddenly 1 saw the first Jap moving in among the transports like some preying shark, skimming low over the water, and 1 thought, "Torpedo plane!" Now I could see other Japs, the same Hat, sinister shapes, prowling low over the water, darting among the transports. The ships were moving over the horir.on now, rac- ing for the narrow straits which led to the open sea. But the splashes of bombs and torpedoes were-coming .closer. Our fighter planes dived into the foray. I watched, fascinated, while a Japanese plane arched into the water, and the slow white fountain of a great splash rose behind it, and then the white turned into a brilliant orange as the plane exploded and sent a sheet of flame towering a hundred feet into the sky. ' . The panorama of action stretched all the way from East to West. One Japanese bomber fell in flames far to the left. Now, to the right, two others were falling in clouds of smoke. Then, suddenly, the sky was empty of Jap planes. The awful storm of firing stopped. 1 found out later that there had been 40 Jap planes; that 16 of these were shot down on the spot. And the remaining 24 destroyed by our fighters as they streaked for home. Going back inland to catch up again with the Marine forces making their way toward the airfield, I passed two Marines bringing in the first Jap prisoners. 1 here were three of the Japs, all of them puny, an<1 none more than five feet tall. Down the. road I met and joined up with Capt. Wilfred Inc. UlstrlbutfU b» Kinir Fcaturw Syndicate In co-opcrntlon with the Ringer,'who was about to lead » party into an abandoned Japanese tent camp., When we got there we knew why we had been ablt to sail into Tulagi Bay and under the jap guns without being fired upori. The enemy had been caught completely unawares. When-1 finally found Col. Hunt's command post, the colonel told me that he had encountered no Japs all day. But, as the afternoon sky drew darker, and night came closer, the eerie feeling that-we might have walked into a trap grew more pressing....
