HAZtLfON '^Hustle up, Joe—you'll be late for'inspection!" SIDE GLANCES ByGalbraith "A pin-point of light appeared in the sky." S \TURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12-\Vhen somebody came into our tent at about nine o'clock last night and shouted, "Get up fellas, we're moving up the ridge," we did not waste any time, but grabbed helmets and shoes and dashed out. Only a few minutes later, from the ridge-top, we saw a pinpoint of green light appear in the sky to the north. The light spread into the glow of a tlare, and then we heard the mosquito hum of a Jap float plane. It was "Louie the Louse,"—a generic name for any of the Jap planes which come to annoy us at night. Louie flew leisurely, as he always does, dropping flares. "A shell whizzed overhead and crashed ..." And then we saw flashes of naval gunfire coming from the direction of Kukum. A shell wlii/zcd over our heads nnd crashed a few hundred yards back. There was a second's pause, and then more Mashes followed, so continuously that the sky seemed to be flickering constantly, and the shells whined overhead almost in column. They kept cum- ins,' for minutes on end, skimming over the trees under which we were lying. We simply lay there clutching the side of the ridge anil hoping the Japs would continue to tire too hit;h. Our observation posts reported that tour Jap warships "Our batteries banged incessantly." were swinging back and forth offshore, bombarding the beach line. The shelling finally stopped, and the small arms fire dwindled. Hut we did not go back into the valley. I slipped my poncho over my head, put on my mosijiiito headnet and my helmet, and lay down cm the top ot the hard ridge to sleep. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER H-Shortly after midnight the din of tiring became tremendous. Our batteries were banging inccuiantly, fire from the direction of the Raider lines swelled into a cascade of sound, and Louie the Louse "Reinforcements are on the way up ..." was flying about the pitch-black sky dropping his flares. \Vc were drawing up a strong skirmish line on the ridge- top. Reinforcements were on their way up. \Vc knew that the Raiders, (Col. Edson's people, out on the ridge, had their hands full, and that a major Jap effort to break through our lines and sei/e the airport had begun. Snipers were tillering in. Ricocheting bullets whistled among the trees. We plastered ourselves Hat on the ground. A stream of tracer bullets arched through the trees from behind us. It seemed now that the Japs were all around.,,. (Continued tomorrow) KiiiK Pea turn Syndicate, Inc. 'lext copyright, 1913, by Unmlum Home, Inc.
