B ' "The Japs were sweeping overhead . . ." S UNDAY, AUGUST 16-The Japs failed again last night to launch the counter-invasion we have been awaiting. Meanwhile, we have been planning a large-scale thrust of our own, aimed at mopping up the enemy at jUatanikau. TUESDAY, AUGUST 18-At one o'clock this afternoon, just as I was preparing to join Capt. Hawkins' troops for the excursion to Mataniliau, the anti-aircraft guns on the airfield began thundering. Jap planes were sweeping overhead in two shallow V's of four each. We heard the gutteral whisper of tlie sticks of bombs coming, Drawing! copyright, 19-13, by "Our artillery blasted a path ahead of us." and we hit the ground. The earth, shook around us, hut there was little damage done. Soon after the Jap" planes vanished, the expedition to Matanikau got under way. We traced the route of our previous for.iy against the village, and camped for the night at the edge of the jungle near our objective. "WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 19 -Reaching a clearing outside Matanikau at eight o'clock this morning, we wair- ed there for our artillery to blast a path ahead of us. A short time later we heard the booming of the guns behind us, then the soft sighing as the shells passed overhead, and 'We moved forward, with the intensity of the barrage increasing steadily." sharp, loud crashes in quick succession us they landed in the village. We moved forward, with the intensity of the barrage incre-.isinij steadily until the booms of the cannon and tiie cracks of the explosions overlapped in a continuous train of sound. The Japs opened up on us with rifles and cluttering machine guns in a storm of tirini; that lilted the jungle. I dived fur the nearest tree, which unfortunately stood somewhat alone and did not have the protection of deep foliage. As the bullets began to snap olF twigs nearby, I debated whether it would be wiser to stay in my exposed spot or to run for a better 'ole. I was still debating the question when I heard a bullet whirr very close to my left shoulder, heard it thud into the ground, and then heard the crack of the rille ilur had tired it. That was bad. Two Marines on the ground U> or 15 feet ahead of me turned and looked to sec if I luJ been hit. They had evidently heard the bullet passing. That made up'my miml. 1 jumped up and dashed lor a big bush . . . (Continued tomorrow) Klnu Ff*lurc* Syndlcato. Inc. T«xt copyright, 1843, by Random Houa«. ln«.
