F RIDAY, AUGUST Jl.Cont.-While the Marines were closing a pincers on the Jap invasion force along the 1'eruru, I worked my way forward, crawling between i'olleys, flopping to earth when a shell or grenade burst. (looked across the river into the shadowy cocoanut grove ivhere only 150 yards from us the advance elements of the Japs were located. But no Japs were visible—a perfectly normal condition in this jungle warfare. The volleys of machine gun and rifle fire from the depths of the grove grew louder. Col. Cresswell's people xvere rolling the Japs toward us. Suddenly 1 saw the dark Drawings couvrUht. 1948. bv "In a few seconds they were squashed down." figures of men running on the strip of beach that bordered the (;rove. In a few seconds the black, violently-moving blobs were squashed down on the sand and wo heard a fusillade of rifle fire. The Japs did not get up again. It was the first visible evidence that Cresswell's men were completing their maneuver ofi encirclement. One of our'fhTiftars went into action, and just after its first shot roared out the figure of a Jap popped up from behind a spit of sand. I le was less than 151) feet from me. 1 saw him rake about three fast steps, and then the mortar shell landed almost directly on top of his helmet. The KinK Features Syndicate. Inc.

A rumbling of powerful motors came from behind us. We turned to find a group of four tanks moving down the trail through the cocoanut palms, heading 'for the Tcnaru and the spit of snnd across its mouth. We watched these awful machines us they plunged across the spit and into the edge of the grove, pivoting, turnint,', spitting sheets of yellow llamc. It was like a comedy of'toys, something unbelievable, to sec them knocking over.palm trees whicii their treads. Group after group were (lushed out and ••.hot. I saw a bright orange flush amidst a cloud of black smoke bursting directly under the treads of cine tank; saw it stop suddenly, crippled. The other tanks moved in protectively towards it, took oil' the crew, nnd continued to roar and rattle through the grove. Kvcrywhere they ;tinted in their swivelling course, their cannon jettisoned '.IKCIS of orange Maine. It seemed improbable that any life could exist under their deadly assault.
