Jerry Thomas, Operations chief nnd spark plug of our troops in the Solomons, tohl me this morning that the Japs apparently have landed in force and made their way to the Tcnaru River. Fortunately, they ran into barbed wire entanglements and were slowed down until more troops coulil be brought up to aid our outposts. "I'm going down to Col. Gates' command post now," lie said. "Do you want to comer" Since Col. Clifton Gates "How's chances of getting tanks in there?" Soon after we reached the command post n griz/lcd man with a lined face and light blue eyes came up. Evidently he had been out in the bush. He was Col. L. 15. Crcsswcll, Col. Thomas nodded. "You know this terrain,T,.T!.," he said, pointing to a map. "How's chances of getting tanks in there?" "We can do it," said Cresswcll. "Good," said Col. Thomas. He turned to Col. Gates. "Jap rifle grenades began to shower into our positions." . . was commanding the troops which held our front lines "We'll give L.B. a platoon of tanks," he said. along the Tenaru, I said 1 certainly would like to go. • The officers bent over a map. The plan was developing as they talked. "I want you to get in there and pin these people down," Col. Thomas said to Col. Cresswell. "Once you get in, don't hold back. Drive in there!" Col. Cresswell began moving immediately. Me shouted to an aide who stood nearby. "Tell B Company to move right down there and wait for the rest." And he was gone. \Vc could hear a long scries of loud "bomp-bomp" sounds like mortar shells exploding, in the direction of the Tcnaru. Col. Gates explained it. "The damn Japs arc .throwing rifle grenades into our positions," he said grimly. It was 11:15 when Col. Gates got a radio message from Col. Crcsswcll. "Col. Gresswcll says he is beginning to attack," he said. "His right Hank is on the llu River, (Thfe | Ilu runs roughly parallel to the Tenaru). There ore no"' g tanks." Evidently the tanks had been held' up by some obstacle in terrain. There was a phone call for Col. Gates. "Good work," he was saving into the phone. "A white flag, eh?" He turned to me. "A white Hag is flying in the ^direction t£ the Jap lines," he said. • s -' (Continued tomorrow) Rook-of-Uie-Monlh Club. la*. Drawinta covyricht. 1043. by Klnc Feature* Syndicate. Inc.
