PAGE THREE Gallant Story of a Heroic Bombing Crew By CHARLES MCMURTRY Headquarters-, Seventh Airforce, South Pacific, May 14 — WP)— "All United States planes returned lo Iheir base" read the routine com- munique, on the Seventh Airforce raid on Mann but that doesn't ;ell the desperate, gallant story of Lieut. Russel O Phillips' Liberator bomber crow which nearly did nol come back. II doesn't tell how Staff Sgt. Stanley P. Pillsbury, himself riddled wilh fragmcnls from a Japanese cannon shell, downed a nip Zero. If he'd missed, lhal Zero would have finished Ihe Liberalor, jusl a few miles off Nauru, Japanese - held island important as an air base. II docsn'l loll how Sgt. Harold V. Brooks continued firing two or three minutes afler he was mor- lally wounded. II docsn'l lell how Iho crew kept Iheir big bomber in the air afler il was hil by four Zero cannon shells, riddled wilh 594 holes — nor how they landed it wilh a flat lire and no brakes. II doesn'l loll how Lou Zamperini, who traded his winged mer- curies of the cinder Irack for USAAF wings, trimmed the ship and labored Iwo and a half hours to keep it in the air and lo make il ready for a hazardous landing. II doesn't toll how Lou and his crew mates spenl ucaj olher three hours of their homeward trip keeping life in five wounded pals, nor how a sixlh, also wounded bill ignorant of his injuries, went about administering first aid and cheering up men hit by cannon fragments. First, meet the crew: Lt. Russell A. Phillips, 20, Camp Picket, Va., pilot Lt. Carlton H. Cuppornell, 28, Long Beach, Calif., co - pliot. Lt. Robert H. Mitchell, 27, Urbana, 111., navigator. Lt. Louis Zamperini, 20, Tor- ranee, Calif., bombardier. Ho is the former NC4A and NAAU mile champion. Lt. Donald E. Nelson, Del Monte. Calif., third pilot and observer. Shrapnel wounded him in the stomach, left leg and right side of the head. Tech. Sgl. Clarence K. Douglas, Hague, Va., engineer. Hit by cannon fragmentation "all up the right log, thigh and chest." Staff Sgt. Stanley P. Pillsbury, Shapleigh, Mo., assistant engineer. Left foot perforated. Al leasl 25 holes in his left log and hip. Lost his left toe. Tech. Sgt. Harold V. Brooks, Clarksville, Mich., radioman. So badly injured in Ihe head and chest he died afler Ihe plane reached its base. Staff Sgt. Frank Classman, Chicago, assistant radioman. Two pieces of shrapnel in his back — but for hours he didn't know he was injured. Staff Sgt. Raymond P. Lambert, Cantonsville, Mo., Tail gunner, wounded loft side and leg. Now for the story, Zamperini talkin: "Our mission was to bo eer-tSfS "Our mission was to bomb the left side of the runway at Nauru Our fragmentation bombs hit stores and planes alongside the runway. "Anti-aircraft hit our tail and knocked out one rudder on our bombing run. Then we took evas ive action. We were in a three plane formation but both of Ihe other bombers were cut off when Zeros attacked. Nylon is being used as surgical sutures inslead of silk. Church News FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH Third and Main Streets Rev. W. R. Hamilton, pastor The First Baptist Church, along with several other churches in the •ity has in previous years dismiss- id its Sunday morning worship service on the Sunday of the High School commencement sermon. This dismissal has not led all the people who would have attended Iheir own church services to go to hear the commencement sermon in Ihe theater. For the benefit of those who would not attend the High School service, therefore, and in view of the urgent need of maintaining in this year of national emergency the supremely important spiritual values for which the churches stand, we think it unwise lo close our auditoriums and do away with our regular church services next Sunday morning. We are not asking our people lo stay away from the Commencement Service, but we are providing a service for those who do not plan to go lo the theater. All services of the day will be held at the usual hours. 9:30 a. m.—Sunday School. 10:50 a. m.—Morning Worship with sermon by the pastor, "The Imporlance of Spiritual Under- slanding". 2:30 p. m.—Sunday School al Guernsey. 7:00 p. m. — Baptist Training Union. 8:00 p. m.—Evening Worship with sermon by the pastor, "Salan's Booby Traps." Several candidates will follow Christ's example and command in in the ordinance of baplism al the close of Ihe evening service, FIRST METHODIST CHURCH Pine at Second Robert B. Moore, pastor.

We feel thai it is an honor to be able lo entertain in our church this great preacher and soul winner. These services will be turned fully into his charge lo be conducted by him and his party. Dr. Ham is probably Ihe most widely known Evangelist and prophetic speaker of today. He has tiad many years of successful preaching and radio work throughout America, and in other countries of the world. We feel that Hope is divinely priviledged to hear the messages of Dr. Ham and we are looking for the Christians of all churches to give this man of God a lypical Hope welcome. • SERIAL STORY fisdhC BY LORETTE COOPER WAAC COPYRIGHT, 1843.

We could walk a few hundred yards to get the kinks out of our leg muscles." "It's a date," she said, surprising herself with the informality of her tone. She caught herself, and resumed a military manner of speech. "Then, sir, I'll meet you ut your office in half an hour." The half hour was well employed refreshing herself. A last glance in the metal mirror which someone had thoughtfully hung on the wall of her room told her lhat she still was capable of making herself attractive. Not even a G. I. mirror could hide that. She reached the meeting place on the minute, and Major Jackson was there. "Lieulenant Carter, it's time you and I held another truth session. Maybe if we did, it would smooth both our paths and save us a lot of embarrassment later." "I'm glad you feel that way, sir," Beth said. "You don't need to say sir like that all the time," Major Jackson expostulated- "I'll treat you cour- teously and I know you'll treat me the same way." "I'm a junior officer, Major, and I have every respect for your rank." It sounded so stiff and formal that it amused even Beth, who meant it most seriously. * * * 'THE major laughed. x "You girls certainly have a great time playing soldier, don't you?" he askijd. Beth's laugh died away. She bit her lower lip—a very lovely lower lip, too—quite hard. She wanted to tell the major off, right then. She wanted to make him eat his words. He saw the look on her face. "I ought to be ashamed of myself," he said. "Particularly afler you turned out to be such a swell fighter on the trip out." "You only said what a lot of people feel," she replied. "Thai's just it. I might as well tell you, not all the officers here are very keen about a WAAC being sent out, particularly to do a staff job. . You're the only woman on the island. I'm the only officer other than yourself, on this island, who knows the full truth as to why you are here. You're a woman, yet for military purposes you're not a woman; you're a fellow officer." "I didn't know that, Major. I supposed that my position was set out as clearly as that of any other officer in any branch of the Army of the United States. I was taught that that was the beauty of Army Regulations — you always knew just where both you and the other fellow stood." Brit Jackson laughed. "You've got me. Let's see how well you know regulations. What FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH Thomas Brewster, minister. Sunday School, 9:45 a. m., with classes for all age groups.

And, by the way, are you going to continue this darned formality all the time with me? You know, out here in the theater of operations, we don't play lhat way. We leave lhat for the garrison soldiers—God bless them, and I'm not casting any slurs at them, either. If there's anything more aggravating than being a garrison soldier, it's being a desk soldier, and both of them pray night and day for a chance to go to the field. I know, because I've been all three kinds of a soldier at one time or another." * * * TJETH did not know how to answer. Finally she said, "I'd find out the ground rules from my commanding officer." "You're smarter than I gave you credit for being," Jackson said. "Well, the ground rules here are that military courtesy is observed, but not to any ridiculous extreme. We live in a very close area, so we salute when we meet for the first time during the day, and then don't salute any more unless there is a special reason. We're something like a submarine crew out here. You know, in a submarine discipline is, if anything, stricter than on a surface vessel; yet the unpractised eye would have a hard time recognizing rank." He paused. Then he continued. "This lecture sums itself up to this," he said. "Unless it's very official and in front of a lot of people, call me Brit. And I'll call you Beth. You've proved yourself to me, and I hope I can to you." "Thanks—" Just as she was about to say "Brit," she heard a woman's voice. "Why, Brit darling, imagine finding you here." Brit turned sharply, startled. So did Beth. Coming toward them down the bowered path was a young woman in a gay afternoon dress, in strong contrast to the uniformed populalion of the island.

The non - slop, offensive was continued at dawn today by fleets of Allied bombers and fighters which swarmed put al greal height over Ihe channel ihe later missions meeling Ihe first raiders coming back. Tremendous explosions rolling from the French coast indicated the Calais and Dunkerque areas were being hardest hit. (The German radio asserted the Brilish planes were unable to con- cenlrale Iheir night attack because of pursuit by German night fighters 'and heavy anti-air craft barrages. The Germans said at least 32 raiders, mostly i'our - cn- gined bombers, were deslroyed and that 10 others were probably shot down.) The German communique, heard by the Associated Press from the Berlin radio, made no mention of the Berlin or Czechoslovakia bombings, saying "several places in western and central Germany, as well as as numerous small rural districts" were bombed. The Germans raised their claims to 34 night .bombers, de- slroyed and said 14 American and British aircraft were shot down in western Europe in daylight attacks yesterday. Losses among the civilian population were acknov/ lodged. One night fighter, a Capt. Lieut., was said to have shot down six RAF bombers last night.-The Germans said they bombed Chelmsford in England, starting exlensive fires in an arms plant. The last sizeable British raid on Czechoslovakia was April 1C. when a heavy force reached out to smash the Skoda armament works at Pilsen in an allack that laler reports said killed 800 and apparently deslroyed everything ii. a 50 - acre area.
