A "A Jap machine gunner opened up on the truck." "New troops swarmed ashore . . ." r pUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15-T\vo members of our JL little group of war corrcsponilcnts linvc shoved olT, »nd in a hurry. They decided, after the big battle of the ridge, that this campaign is going to turn into another Bataan. Bob Miller and I, beini? somewhat punch-drunk, »rc more inclined to view the future cheerfully. This morning the Raiders told us sonic good stories of valor in the ridge battle. Best of them all were the exploits bf Lewis E. Johnson, of DC Bcquc, Col., who was wounded three 1 times in the leg by grenade fragments. At daybreak he \vas placed in a truck witli a dozen other casualties. But as the truck moved down the ridge road, a Jap machine gunner opened up and wounded the driver severely. The truck stopped. Then Johnson, painfully, dragged himself into the driver's seat. When the motor would not start, he used the starter for traction and pulled the truck 300 yards over the crest of the ridge. Then he got the engine going and drove to the hospital. Hy that time he was feeling so refreshed he drove the truck back to the front for more wounded! FRIDAY, SEPTK.MHER 18-The rumor that rein- forcernents were cnrotite to Guadalcanal was substan- dated today when they arrived. Early this morning, a certain colonel told me: "I can't say anything more,'but I'd recommend that yon go for a walk on tliic beach." I went to the beach and saw warships, transports anil cargo vessels steaming into sight, All along the beach then, our weary veterans watched as new troops, thousands of them, boatload after boatload, swarmed ashore. They were Marines, wearing clean utility suits and new helmets, and they talked tough and loud as they came ashore. One of our veterans told me he had been talking to some of the new arrivals. "Huh," he growled, "these guys want to "The Japs landed their daily stint of men." tell US about the war!" And we knew then that it would take some time with these men, as it had with us, to get rid of that loud surface toughness and develop the cool, quiet fortitude that comes with battle experience. Our reinforcements arc certainly welcome. But the enemy landings at Guadalcanal still go on. Hit by bit, they are building up their forces—even now, so soon after their second big attack has failed. Last night, for instance, the Jap shins which shelled us probably also landed their daily stint of troops. (Concluded tomorrow) Drawiima copyriitbt, 19W, by King Features Syndicate. Inc.
