B. HAZELTON (i "Our men answered with heavy fire . . ." "The dive bombers' target was a Jap base." S UNDAY, SEPTEMBER 6-The Japs fired mortar shells into our tractor camp last night. But when our men answered with heavy fire, the Japs withdrew. I reached the airport this morning just in time to hear the end of an address by a general to the pilots. They were gathered in a circle around him. And the general was saying: "And I don't want you to think those people back home don't appreciate what you are doing. They do appreciate it." "What was the rest of the speech?" I asked a fighter. "You heard it," he said, disconsolately. "It was that last sentence, repeated a few times." What the fighters would like to hear, obviously, is news of some relief. Some of them have, been fly'tig eigflt to ten hours almost every day under cdmliat comditimis, for the last three weeks. Col. Fikc gave us the results of today's raid by our dive- bombers. The target was Gi/o, a Jap base in the Uusstll Islands. The dive-bombers found no aircraft or ships there, but bombed a sjroup of buildings, and probably destroyed n radio station. Some of our pilots lost their way in the "soup." Ensign Walter W. Coolbaugh, of Clark Summit, Pa., could not "He parachuted from a fighter ..." even find fogbound Gizo; but he did find Santa Isabel, and bombed that. Lieut. Richard R. Amerine, of Lawrence, Kan., a Marine flier, came wandering into our lines todny, thin as a ghost, to say he had been out in the jungle, dodging Japs and existing on red ants and snails for seven days. Me had parachuted from a fighter plane when his oxygen apparatus went out, a week ago, and had landed at Cape lisperance on the northwest corner of the island. Trying to find his way back, he had run into a large group of Japs. He had found one Jap asleep by the side of a trail, cupyrlnht. 1013. by King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Having once studied entomology, the science of insects, he was able to subsist on selected ants and snails. Me knew which were edible. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 7-This morning Col. Edson told me that he is planning to attack the Jap positions in the Taivu Point area tomorrow. He told me to be at the embarkation'point if I want to go. I'll be there . ..
