Guadalcanal Diary «nMt* Book-of-the-Monffh •Y RICHARD ILLUSTRATIONS tV I, I. HAZELTON "Our patrol planes spotted an enemy squadron." S UNDAY, AUGUST 23-This afternoon there came disquieting news that a large squadron of Jap ships was on its way to Guadalcanal. Our patrol .planes had spotted H Jap ships—transports, cruisers and destroyers—about 150 miles offshore. A striking force'of our• divc-bomhurs went out to hunt-the Japs, but the weather closed in and they could not make contact. I was at the airport when the pilots returned, looking brokenhearted. 'T feel like hell about it," said the squadron leader, checking in with the operations chief. "But we just couldn't get in there." MONDAY, AUGUST 24-Thc expected Japanese task "Planes streaked through the clouds in combat . . ." force did not show up during the night. But at about 2:30 this afternoon our air raid siren wailed, and our swi/t fighter planes zootncd into the overcast sky. They were straining to "get upstairs" before the Japs arrived. In a few minutes, planes were streaking through the clouds in combat. We could hear the rattle of their guns, tlie swish of Jap bombs falling, and the sharp, ground-shaking "crack-crack-crack" as they struck. After the all-clear sounded, I talked to the returned fighter pilots. A blond lad with very white teeth laughed gaily as he told his story. He was Lieut. J. H. King, of "The big bomber, which had been flying along like a fat and happy goose, suddenly exploded." Brooklinc, Mass. "A big bomber was flying along like a fat and happy goose," said King. "I dove at it and it just exploded at the first burst." The final tally was 10 Jap bombers and 11 Zeros downed. TUESDAY, AUGUST 25-Just after midnight, my sleep was shattered by explosions coming very close. Reflex action took me out of bed and onto the ground, flat. When the shelling ended, I could hear in the darkness a blubbering, sobbing cry that was more animal than human. A Marine running past said several men had been badly wounded and needed a corpsman.

Two dim lights, set in a square dark shape, marked an ambulance. And the eerie squeak of the stretchers sliding into place, a sound like that of a fingernail scratched across a blackboard, was a sound I shall never forget. All day today, rilancs roared out to attack the Jap naval force offshore. The results were encouragtng-'the Japs have been turned back and dispersed, with one of their cruisers and two transports badly damaged.
