Search for a Hero By Thomas Hal Phillips ' XV WE sailed on Dec. 12, Bert and I, and three others from the old platoon. We were put aboard B Liberty Ship, 400 soldiers and sailors in one hold, and 19 officers in a stateroom a little larger than e panlry. ] remember 'hal we stood on deck, in the rain, and watched until there was not the faintest glimpse of land. Bert said "Take a good look, we're not likely to see it again. Soon as we tend to Germany we'll lave to whip Russia—we haven't got sens* enough tp 'let them whip each other." He pounded my 'jack ™r? u ' r ? an unr «»sanabte optimist Were both going to dh in Italy— lct;s race it 1 told Tepe to go out and find herself somebody else, a big fat millionaire who won't have to go to war. II you wci not so all-fired selfish, you'd tell your sugah-pie the samf thing." "I don't have a sugah-pie." "Perish that stun. I've read her letters." "Is that 30?" "Certainly. Every time you leave them lying around — how can I resist a love letter?" "Another mistake for you That situation has resolved itself into a Platonic affair." "Freud did away with Plato- ism. "Well, she prefers my brother He's a hero." "Hah! Like yesterday. 'When you wrote that you could not come l--:ue. all the color of this beautiful autumn was suddenly gone and I felt winter for the flrst time ' Fr»ud or Plato? Answer ,ne that. She writes much belter than Tepe but then I've always told Tepe she didn f have any sense." *_£??. -'k? ? 3t i 1 day °' our voyage we anchored in the outer harbor or,. Petiville, North Africa. Th sun was warm and the hills around the town were spotte< with green patches, as if the sun shone through a green mirror. The town was not large- it gri out of the earth like tombstone We went ashore in Higgins boats and when we stepped onto the quay, a flock of nigeons landed before us, their«reen necks jerking In the sunlight, their red feet mincrng over the cobblestones They were not afraid. • • • were quickly picked up and hauled away from the docks through a tunnel to a replacement pool. There was mail waiting for us- I had a few Christmas cards, .nd a box of candy from Meb. There was . letter of two sentences, written in pencil, from Wallace. The semester will be over In two weeks. Where is theme number 8, 9 and 10?" Foreign soil had put a righteousness into me, I thought and I would not get mad. 1 would' write and say it was a .>ity the old war had interfered, and another pity that I didn't insert a war clause in the contract. Bert thought we should try to find Dave Mapp; I thinM it was more a project to test his blood- lound instinct than a gesture of riendship. After half a dozen rials we found a yeoman with the muster sheets of each craft in that area. We found Dave's name listed on the crew of the 1.C1-003. We found Dave in the engine oom of the Double O Three [rease all over him, working by he light of battle lanterns Bert aid, "What kind of butler bowl did you fall Into?" He did not seem surprised to ee us, nor glad, but like a meticulous housekeeper when sudden ompany finds her house out of rder "That skipper let all the I motor-macs go ashore, and this iistei." he tapped tbc generator,! 'conked out. Me trying to fix it, md I don't know enough to be > fireman." '•What's the matter with the other one?" Bert said.: "It's a lemon. Always broke We're waiting on a r,art for it right now." Bert went down and looked at the generator, like the way Rufus Cole might look at a 'lorse. "When did you two get here?" Dave said. "Today." "How. did you leave things in good ole Little Crick?" "I told 'em to shove me or the Creek, and they shoved me But I d as soon be here as there You speaking any A-rah? We've come to get you to show us the ropes.' "I'm stuck here for today The skipper's nutty as a fruitcake, letting all the motor-macs run off" "Any French cuties In the town? "Some. But the army got hen. first, remember?" ... , JJERT hl« peacoat and his blouse, handed them to me and began to inspect the generator. Within a few minutes some- oody appeared at the top of the adder and poked his head through the manhole. "Dave? It flxcd yet?" "Not yet." The face was gone and we could hear pacing over us. ' "Who was that?" Bert said "The captain. Vosef the Tailor." "He calls you by your first name?" "He calls you anything. His name is Joseph Taylor. When we vere In England, he told us that his granddaddy used to be a very expensive lailor in London; but on he way from England here, he old us his granddjddy was a jeweler. There's some kind of feud going on now between him and the other two officers — they won't peak to him. The crew hates him •me day and loves him the next Vhero'd you ever learn about Die- el engines?" "I messed around with them one ummer in Oklahoma. Don you'd ust as well go put those things -iown.
