HAZELTON c "Four Zeros went down—three of them in a minute and a half." '"THURSDAY, AUGUST 27-Lnst night I was avvak- JL cned by the unpleasant symptoms of a local epidemic, which the doctors call gastroenteritis. This morning, suffering from a dizr.ying fever and nausea, I was carried olf feet first to a hospital tent. SUNDAY, AUGUST 30-Finally rid of my illness, 1 went to the airport and talked to the fighter pilots as they came in from a battle with Jap planes over the harbor. Capt. John L. Smith, of Lexington, Okla., told me he had had his biggest day of fighting—he shot down four Zeros; three of them in a minute and a half. "I dove on one, shot him down, and saw another on my wingman's tail," he said calmly. "I slewed around anil picked off that one. Then 1 saw one coming at me from below and ahead. I nosed over and dove right at him and let all my guns go. 1 had a tough time avoiding crashing him head on. I could see the prop shatter, and 1 came so close I could see his head —his helmet and goggles." After that, said the captain, he had ammunition left for only one gun. He lit out for the airport, trying to sneak in low over the water. "1 was flat-hatting along"thc beach at about 50 feet," he said, "when I sawV.vo Zeros ahead Drawings copyright, 1913, by Kins Features Syndicate. Inc. Text copyrik-ht. 1913. by JlRnclom House. "The Jap dove into the water." and to the right. I made a run for one of them with my one gun and saw him fall off and dive into the water. The other one took off as fast as he could go. 1 did, too, because I'd used up all my ammo." At^Gcn. Vandcgrift's headquarters, I learned that 18 of the Zeros encountered that day had been shot down. "Interception was perfect today," the general said happily. Hut the afternoon was not yet over. Suddenly, \ve gi>t word of a surprise air raid, dashed for cover, and then felt the ground shake, from deep down, as if there were an earthquake. I raced to the open and saw a towering Inc.

We heard later that the little auxiU iary transport Colhoun had been hit squarely by three bombs. She had sunk almost immediately, but we had saved about 100 of her crew, and lost only 38. Tonight there was none of the usual rumor about an enemy task force heading our way, hut late in the evening we heard the sounds of many planes taking off, and surmised that some sort of contact had been made. We could only wait and hope . . . (Continued tomorrow) nook-of-the-Month Hlub. Inc.
