B. HAZlLTON O "The guns were cracking close off shore in a furious naval engagement." S ATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5-Our expedition to S;ivo returned last night, having failed to locate any Japs. But there was evidence that an enemy landing party had been on the island earlier. At one o'clock this morning we were routed out of lied by sounds of heavy shelling. The guns were cracking close off shore, and the shells sighed over our heads. From the dugout's edge I watched the bright (lashes (if light rising high in the sky, heard the haughty, metallic voices of the cannon. Sitting like this, virtually in the lap of a shelling attack, one felt as if he were at the mercy of a great vindictive gi;\nt whose voice was the voice of thunder; the awful colossal scale of modern war has- brought the old gods to life again. From Kukum, by phone, we heard the "dope": that there had been a furious nav.il engagement off Savo Island. That two ships had been hit and were still afire. But we did not know whether they were ours or theirs. With daylight 1 hurried to Kukum. where I learned that the auxiliary transports Little and CiPJijory had been sunk. On the beach I found survivors scattered all over- some on stretchers with Doctors working over them. Some "Doctors worked over the casualties . . ." with lesser wounds, sitting dejectedly on the sand, waiting treatment. Others in scant, torn clothing, many of them still smudged with oil, standing in silent groups, lioats lined the shore and wounded were being taken from them on stretchers; other boats dotted the water a few hundred yards offshore, moving like busy watcrbugs. We went back to Gen. Vandcgrift's command post and from there to airfield headquarters to sec what damage our dirt bombers, which we spotted yesterday, heading north, had done to the enemy. We found they'hail heavily bombed and strafed 36 landing boats which had been Drawing, copyright, 11)43. by King Feature. SynJIcMe. Inc. Text copyrurlit. IW^llandoin Hume. Inc.

Dive bombers, and Army and Marine fighters, had gone put this morning to strafe 15 other Jap landing boats trying to get ashore at Taivu. Apparently both groups- those at Cape Esperance and those at Taivd-wcrc badly damaged, and many Japs killed. Hut the discouraging fact remains that some Japs are getting through our cordon anil landing. l!y constant effort they arc trickling forces into our island. Eventually these landings will mount up —unless we can find a way to stop them. (Continued tomorrow) tl FUNNY BUSINESS ''He's trvina lo find the dime he lost yesterday!"
