"Hurry up with that water softener—I go on in five minutest" SIDE GLANCES By Galbraith "The steel monster lumbered after the Jap." F RIDAY, AUGUST 21, Cont.-Our tanks, crashing through the cocoamu grove at the mouth of the Tenaru River, rained destruction on the Japs. I remember seeing one Jap, who was flushed out from under the treads of one of our tanks, jump up and run towards the beach with the ponderous steel monster lumbering along after him. I thought the tank would certainly run him down or fell him with machine gun fire, but it turned back into the grove. The Jap continued to run frantically along the beach, and all along our front line rifle fire banged and machine gun tracer bullets arched around him. "He fired several shots-fast." "One man fire," shouted Capt. James Sherman, of Som- ervillc, Mass. He designated a grizzled Marine veteran who wore the chamois elbow pad of a rifle-range marksman. The Marines told me he was Gunnery Sgt. Charles E. Angus, of Nashville, Tertn. We watched Angus as if he were the spotlighted star of a play. The sergeant was nervous. He fired several shots, working his bolt fast, and missed. He slammed home another clip of cartridges and fired one of them. But the Jap had sunk into cover again. Suddenly the Jap started to rise. He had reached only "The Jap sank to the sand . . a crouch when Sgt. Angus, now icy calm, took careful aim and let one shot go. The Jap sank as if the ground had been jerked from under him. It was a neat shot—at 200 yards. Across the river, Jap after Jap jumped up from the underbrush and dashed for the shore. It was their last hope of escape, with Col. Cresswell's troops coming in from behind. Most of the Jans were knocked down by our fire long before they reached the beach. But a few got to the water and tried to swim away. Wherever we could see a swimming man, n stonn of little waterspouts "At such point-blank range, few of the Japs got far." rose around his bobbing head as our bullets smacked home. From time tp time a live Jap stirred from amongst the dead piled on the river spit, and dived into tire water. But at such point-blank range, few of them got far. And then the fighting, suddenly, seemed to have finished. The detailed sequence of the battle was not yet clear. But we knew that a major Japanese attempt to break through our lines and seize the vital airport had been stopped; and we knew, too, that this must have been one of the most crushing defeats the Japs had yet sullcred.
