"You wanted to move to the country to raise vegetables —wen, I've seen your friends' Avives working in their gardens, and ; you may as well understand I'm not the Qardening type!" "We were ready for a struggle as we dashed for shore." 'TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8-\\'e set out yesterday JL nfterttoon for our attack on the Japs at Taivu Point, spent the night on our transports, and shoved off toward snore this morning. Just as \ve were starting, c.nne a fortunate happenstance—a Convoy of American carijo ships passed very close to us. The Japs, seeing the combined armada, got the impression of a mass assault. And many of them ran. But we had no way of knowing this as we dashed for shore. We were ready for a struggle, and puzzled when there was no hail of fire from thVjungle. Shortly after eight o'clock, we made our first contact with the Japs. I snw our people running, and followed a group to the beach. A row ot Jap landing boats was'lying on the sand ahead, and amidst the boats, a group of men in brown uniforms—Japs. "Red Mike" (as the Raiders call their red-headed colonel) gave the order to open lire. 'The machine guns began rattling. Now the Japs were answering. I heard the familiar flat crack of the .25 rifle, and the repetition of the sound in long bursts from light machine guns. The Jap guns stood out in the chorus like a tenor in a quartet. A runner came up to the colonel, who was sitting for a "We heard the shell burst behind us . . ." brief second in a clump of underbrush. "Nick (.Ma). Floyd VV. Nickerson of Spokane, Wash.) says to tell you there are people across the stream," he said. The j>,ps apparently were moving through the jungle along the sticam on our left Hank,' and planning to cut us off. The colonel swung around to Capt. Antondli. "Tony," he said, "take a pnrrol. Flank those Japs if you can." Now came a tcrrilic blast a few yards ahead. We hcanl the shell .whiz past anil burst behind us, and we knew we must be smack up against n Jap field piece. It began to rain in torrents. All around me, Marines " 'Spread outl' Nick shouted." were squatting % or sprawling unhappily in the green, wet underbrush, Nick shouted at tl-e group. "Spread out," he said, with the proper blistering expletives. "We lost one squad of the second platoon with a single shell. One of those might come in here." It began to look as if we might have tackled a bigger Jnp force than we could handle. The colonel was concerned about the Japs who might be sneaking around our flank. Lie put in a call for naval gunfire support. This was no picnic . . . (Continued tomorrow) Drawings copyriuht, liM3, by Kina Feature* Syndicate, Inc. Text copyright, 11148, by Kandom House, Inc.
