F RIDAY, AUGUST 21, Cont.-Col. Gates hung up the field phone into which he luul been talking. "A single Jap is coming over with ;\ white flag," he said. He called Capt. Wolf, the interpreter, and instructed the captain to go up to the Tcnaru front and talk to the Jap, who was wounded. 1 started our for the front with Wolf. In a cocoanut grove we came to an advanced command post. "Better get down," warned a Marine. We squatted on the dirt. One of the officers was talking on the phone. "All right," he said. "We'll check it." "The Marines found the break in the line . . ." "Our line to Col. Pollock is out," he announced. "Proh- ahly mortar fire clipped it. Who'll go?" Two Marines, looking scared but resolute, volunteered. Then they turned to me. "We'll show you where Col. Pollock is, if you'll follow us," they said. So we started out, moving fast, keeping low. The Marines found the break in the line and lixcd. it. We pushed ahead, then, moving between bursts of firing, until we could see the river, the long curving spit of gray sand which closed the outlet into the sea, and the shadowy cocoanut grove across the river where the Japs were, "In the hole, was the Jap prisoner." We were crouching behind a tree when Col. Pollock came tip. "The prisoner's over there," he said, pointing to a group of men lying prone iround a nearby foxhole. Wo made a dash for the foxhole and flopped beside it, In the hole, on his back, with one arm su allied in a red- stained bandage, was the Jap prisoner, dipt. Wolf immediately began to question him, but the answers were slow and apparently not very satisfactory. Snipers began to range on us from across the river. A pink-checked captain and 1 headed for cover behind a cocoanut tree. He told me, while we watched the shail- "Wo lost some men-but we stopped tho Japs." owv woods across the river, that it was his unit which hail been doing the fighting in this particular sector. When the firing let up a little, the captain waved a hand at a point of land on the. Tenant's west bank. "That's Hell's Point over there," he said. "That's where the jap* tried their crossing. Some of our tlien moved'up on the point to get a better field of fire, and the |nps put up flares that were as bright as day. We lost soine people in there. "Hut," he added tersely, "we stopped the Japs." (Continued tomorrow) Drawings copyriBht. 1943. by King Features Syndicate. Inc. TeSl copyrlnht. 1043. by Random House, Inc.
