MAItlTON ""•George sends his notes anaill"- SIDE GLANCES By Galbraith "Blasting the Japs out of their caves was a man-sized job." W EDNESDAY, AUGUST 12, Cont.-After in» from the pursuing submarine, we sailed into the calm waters of Tulagi harbor, down the narrow passage of water walled by greenery, and came to a small dock. We located Brii;. Gen. William 11. Rupertus, and he summarized die fighting on Tulagi, Gnvutu and Tanam- bogo. Jap dugouts-dungeons, the general called them— had been found in great 'numbers on Tulagi and Gavutu. Exterminating them had been a tough job, particularly on Tulagi, \vhere only yesterday the last ot them had been finished off. "You've never seen such caves and dungeons," said the general. "There would be 30 or 40 Japs in them. And they absolutely refused to come out." The general was enthusiastic about the bravery of the Marines in the fighting here. "I don't know how to express it," he said, and it was plain to see that he was having difficulty [rutting his admiration into words. "I think the United States should be proud . . ." Me stopped and tried again. "I mean that when it comes to bravery there isn't anybody in the world that can beat us!" Col. A-lerritt Edson, of Chester, Vt., told us that the whole Nip defense of Tulagi seemed to be built around "Sg». Goss was a one-man demolition squad . . ." the small groups in dugouts. There was radio apparatus in nearly every one of these holes. "We pulled out 35 dead Japs from one dugout," the colonel said. "In another we took out 30. Some of these people had been dead for days. But the others were still in there shooting. In one cave there were three Japs cornered. They had one pistol. They fired it until they had three shots left. Then one Jap shot the two others and killed himself." The colonel told us about the Marines' one-man demolition squad-Sgt. Angus Goss. When Goss tried throwing hand grenades into a Jap cave, they were promptly "The sergeant went in, firing full till." tossed hack by the Japs inside. So the sergeant tried holding the grenades for three seconds before hurling them. But even'then, the Japs caught the missiles ami threw them back. The patient sergeant then got TNT and thrust it into the cave. The Jnps tossed that hack too, and when it exploded it drove splinters into Goi,s' leg. He got a bit angry then, and went into the dim-lit cave firing full tilt. Four Japs fell under his first withering blast. Eight other dcau Japs were sprawled tmmmi them. (Continued tomorrow) 1 Inc.
