Two Arkansas Fliers Receive Decorations Somewhere in New Guinea, May 0 (/P)— Standing along a runway from which their Mitchell bombers and Boston attack planes long have taken off to go into combat with the enemy, more than 50 United Stales pilots and enlisted men have received medals from a grateful government. While the tropical sun beat down heavily and anti-aircraft gunners maintained a careful watch of skies to the north, the men received their medals from Lieut. General George C. Kcnney, commander of Allied forces in the Southwest Pacific. First to be decorated was Lieut. Col. Robert F. M. Strickland, Ciol, Ala. (wife at Shrvcport, La.) He received the Distinguished Service Cross for extraordinary heroism just a year ago when he led his flight on a hazardous raid from Australia to the Philippines. Other decorations included: Silver Stars — Sgt. George C. Stevens, Pine Bluff, Ark. Purple Heart — Staff Sgt. Joe Hagan, Cabot, Ark. was announced today by the United "Hales Army. The announcement said the plane struck a hill in an isolated section near Grindavik and was demolished. The only survivor was the rear gunner, Staff Sgt. George A. Eisel. Besides Lieut. Gen. Andrews, commander of United Slates forces in the European theater of operations, those killed included Bishop Adna W. Leonard of the Methodist Episcopal church of Washington, D. C.

RENALDO CHAPTER XXVin '"PHE three men slid down the steep bank of the hillock and joined Allison, who had been waiting below. "Let's go back down the path a safe distance where we can talk without being overheard," Barry whispered. Without another word the little group retraced their steps a few hundred yards and stopped under a clump of tamaracks. Allison jumped from the mule's back. "I feel like a pretzel!" she whispered, stretching her legs and doing a routine of bending exercises. Barry's face was a study in thoughtfulness. Finally he said, "I think the next thing is to follow this trail down and see if we can find where they are treating the ore." Hall opened his shirt and dug into a money belt. Presently he pulled out a crumpled letter and handed it to Barry. "This is the letter the company secured from the Guatemalan government to the Quiche chief asking for his co-operation. It should carry some weight if I can ever get to him." Barry's face brightened as he read the letter. When he finished he said, "I've got it! The Quiches have never seen you, and Tony here speaks enough of their language to act as your interpreter. Why don't you and Tony go to the chief at once and Allison and I will follow this trail and see what we can find out. From what the chief told me he doesn't know that these remote mines are being worked. He did say that he'd been having trouble with some of his tribesmen—that he knew some white men were giving them money—breaking the oath of Chichicastenango." "I can't believe that Rcnaldo would have any hand in this sort of thing," Allison said. "He knows too well what the dangers would fee if the tribe were aroused." '$ bard to believe." parry agreed. "But you told me yourself Renaldo is ambitious." "We, of course, have no right to condemn him—yet!" Allison said. "No, not yet." • * * * was busy tightening the cinches on the two mules, getting ready for the trek to the village-of-the-market-place. "How far is it from here to the Quiche village?" Hall asked Tony. The Indian scratched his black thatch of hair. "We be there before sundown." Hall shook hands with Allison and Barry and left. "We can't be far from the coast," Barry said, smiling apologetically. "If you can take it we'll push on." Allison 'was running a comb through her hair. She stopped and smiled up at Barry. What do you mean—if I can take it?" Barry laid his hands on her slender shoulders and there was a twinkle in his gray eyes. "I guess I shouldn't ever question your ability to take it after the way you've come through hardship down here." He hesitated for a moment and then went on. "I keep thinking of the girl I met on the boat in New York. The girl who had never known what hardship was." "That was so long ago," Allison said in a hushed voice, "that that Allison seems like a dream to me. I don't think I ever knew her— really." Her violet eyes were shining in the pale light of early morning. Barry tightened his grip on her shoulders and brushed his lips lightly over her forehead. He had a wild desire to crush her in his arms, to pour out what was really in his heart—but his job wasn't ione. He couldn't ask a girl to believe in him until he could prove his courage was a match for here. He pulled himself away from her and said shortly, "Let's be getting along." Barry insisted that they stop often to rest and bathe their hands and faces in the cold cascades of spring \yater that suddenly sprang flrom rocfes to sparkle briefly ja the sun and run away down the slope. The sinking sun was setting everything afire with its glow when the Caribbean finally loomed below them like a sheet of colored glass. The air grew warmer as they reached the lowlands and the sun had been swallowed up by the sea when Barry suddenly pulled his mule to a stop. He pointed ahead and spoke in a low voice. "See those fires down there? That must be where they treat the ore." * * * A LLISON'S eyes were taking in the scene. A dozen fires were glowing through the dusk and the dark forms of men were moving in their light. "What do we do now?" Allison asked. "We'll get as close as we can and still be safe." They moved on slowly until they came to a clump of trees. Barry stopped and slid from his mule. He motioned Allison to follow. Together they watched. Tiie glow from the fires showed the outline of huge clay ovens. Indians were shoveling in the ore to be roasted. Others were filling large earthenware jugs with the precious quicksilver and sealing the tops with wax. Two Indians were hoisting the heavy jugs onto a two-wheeled cart. "I think Hall was right!" Barry whispered. "They are loading the fishing boats and will probably wait until late tonight to sail out to a waiting submarine." They moved stealthily through the night, skirted around the flat promontory where the roasting was being carried on and didn't stop until they stood in the dark shadows on the narrow strip o£ beach. Two-wheel carts were coming in a steady stream down the slope and through the sand to the water's very edge. The heavy wheels cut deeply into the soft beach and Quiche drivers urged the mules on with cracking whips. A fire burned on the beach to cast an eerie light for loaders who were stowing the jars into boats no larger than dinghies! Suddenly from out of the blackness • a man in white riding breeches and boots stepped into the glow of the firelight. He was shouting orders to the Indians, urging them to hurry with their loading. Allison's small hand clutched Barry's arm. ^ "Look!" * Barry stiffened. Through hard- clenched teeth he muttered, "Why, the rat! Remaldo!" ' U. S, Fliers in China Boast 10-1 Score Washington, May G'— (IP}— A combat score of ten lo one has been racked up againsl Ihc Japanese by U. S. Army fliers in China, LI. Colonel Herbert Morgan said today.

"We've destroyed belief than Ion lo one of Ihcir planes in Ihc air, and counting aircraft destroyed on the ground, aboul 12 or 15 to one, with emphasis on the higher figure," he said.
