Sjjurlikk, of Lincoln, Net)., this morning to hear his story of the iMataiiihaii raid. He said the' hardest part of the advance by his forces had been the push" through intrenched positions oh the Village outskirts'. When the enemy trenches had been cleaned outj one by one, the-Japs made 'a last dtspenuc bayonet charge. "Our men took pretty careful aim and knocked them off," Capt. Spurlock said. "Sonie of our people even stood up and fired offhand'at thd Japs, in the middle of the charge'." Ptobably the outstanding hero of the attack had been P.F.C. Nicholas Silco, a tough scrapper from Brooklyn. While going to work with his automatic rifle on a machine guri nCst, Silc6 was shot three times; one bullet hit him in the chest, a second in tlie groin, and the third shat- teftd his hand, ripping two fingers clean away. That might have knocked out a lesser man, but not Sileo. He kept on spurting lend into the Jap nest, using his good hand to pull the'trigger. This afternoon the Marines on this island enjoyed a long-awaited treat; it was the pleasure of seeing our air support arrive. "That's the most be'ailtifiil sight I've ever seen," said one Marine as the plants roared in. FttlbAY, AUGUST 21-At about 2:30 this •morning, we were awakened by the sound of heavy firing coming from the East. I got dressed and hurried to Col. Hunt's command post where a group had already gathered, Considering that this probably was the long-awaited Jap! jnvfl- sion attempt, everyone seemed in high good humor/ "Wait until our planes, hit those babies at dawn," said': Lieut* Sncll. "Won't they be surprised!" At six o'clock the sky was beginning to lighten in'the East, and We heard.the sound of airplane engines, i-m, said Lieut. Wilson, "planes!" He rubbed his hands, as before a feast. Oiir planes were beginning \o warm lip. We had been trying to get through a call to find out what was happening. Now, Lieut. Wilson got an'ariswcr, *"Thc firing was our prearranged barrages,' he rcpbrtcd. • ''The enemy front is the Teharu." It was a,shock to hear the news; for if the Jap front lay on the Tciiahf River, then probably a formidable in'vasfoii force'was only-three i or four miles from the airport, trying to .break through.
