W EDNESDAY, AUGUST 19, Cont.-Thc bush that 1 dove into tar protection was well populated with ants which cnnvltxl.up my trouscr legs, but such annoyances were secondary now. The sniper who hail tired at me was still on my track. He had evidently spotted my field glasses and taken me for a regular officer. 1 searched the nearby trees, but could sec nothing moving. Then a .:5 cracked again and 1 heard the bullet pass. 1 jumped for better cover behind two trees. 1 lure 1 began to wish I had a rifle. I should like ro find that sniper, I thought. I had made an ignominious retreat. My dignity had been "More to the right on the mortars!" offended. The Atataniknu sortie had become a personal matter. It began to rain-hard. A Jap .25 machine gun was sputtering again on our right flank and ahead. Hut the gun hud been spotted by our "point" in that direction. In a few seconds sve heard the rrash of one of our mortar shells, ranging on the Jap. Then a muttered sentence, passed from mouth to mouth, came back from that area: "Pass the word back, more to the right on the mortars." A few seconds later I heard the "thwung" of the mortar firing. "More to the right on the mortars," was the word King Features SyndicaU, Inc. T*.tt copyrluht, 19-13, by Kamlom House, "Smoke mushroomed upward . . "It was a Jap cruiief, Thft B-17 had scored a direct hit." that came hack a second time. And then again, the thwung of the firing, the crash of the exploding shell—a;id grim silence from the Jap machine gun. 1 decided to return to headquarters. Hut the excitement • of the day was not yet over. As I ne.ired Kukum, 1 could see one of our H-17 bombers offshore, swooping down on a ship. Bombs dropped, a mushroom of dark brown smoke rose from a point just aft of the rear mast, and a torrent of smoke followed. 1 could see now that it w.is a jap heavy cruiser, and her fantail was afire. 'I he H-17 had scored a direct hir. 1 could hear the juuilil of heavy firing coming from the Jap and see bursts of ami-aircraft shells in the sky. Hut the bomber had done his job. Now he climbed imo the sky and headed home. The Jap was crippled but not stopped. Me made for the passage that leads to the sea, between Florida and Savo Islands. Clouds of smoke were still rising from the fantail. Kick at Col. Hunt's command post, later in the afternoon, I heard that Matanikau and l\oktimhon.i bail been taken.
