Edson called for ammunition . . ." M ONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, Cont.-Wliile the battle on the ridge was at its height, the telephone line to Col. Epson's front was cut. When it was repaired 3 call came through from Col. Edson, warning that the Raiders' ammunition was running low. At 3 A.M. the colonel called again to say that he was "almost out." The ammunition that had been sent to him had not arrived. We were wondering if the Raider line was going to cave. It was a fierce battle all around. The sounds of heavy firing to our left broke out again and Jap planes dropped'fkres. Col. Thomas checked by phone. "It's in "The Japs got into McKelvy's wire." McKelvy's area," he said. "The Japs got into his wire." Snipers were still popping at us from nil sides. We had our hands full. Hut then Col. Edson called back to say that the ammunition had arrived, and our morale soared. As the first light of dawn came, the general was sitting on the side of the ridge, talking to some of his aides. A Jap machine gun opened up, and they high-tailed for the top of the ridge, with me right behind. We were heading for a tent, where we woufd at least have psychological shelter. Just as we reached the tenr, a bullet clanged against a steel plate only two or three feet from us. It was "To our right we saw a wounded man crawling towards us pitifully." amusing to see the rcsr ends of the dignified gentlemen disappearing under the edge of the tent. 1 made an equally undignified entrance. Later, I worked my way out along the ridge to the firing line. 1 lay next to a machine gunner, while the Japs sprayed lead at us. To our right we saw a wounded man crawling towards us—a pitiful sight, like a dog with only three serviceable legs. 1 le had been shot in flic thigh. In the jungle at the foot of the ridge we heard heavy firing. Our troops were pushing through, mopping up. I worked my way back to tiie command post. Col. Edson and Col. Griffith, the guiding powers of the Raiders, came in. The mere fact that they came was a good sign- it meant that the fighting was at least slackening, and perhaps ending. Col. Edson said that a force of between 1,000 and 2,000 Japs had tried to storm the ridge, with lesser forces Infiltrating along the base. His estimate of the Jap casualties at that time was between fiOO and 700 in the ridge area alone. Our own casualties had been heavy, for the hghting, was furious. (Continued tomorrow).
