Search for a Hero By Thomas Hal Phillips XX !TT was dark but the captain had | his blackboard on the well deck. |Ho stood before the blackboard i.aml announced: "Men, this is nearly it! At 1400 tomorrow we lead a group of LCT's out of here for an IGiid-run beyond Larcone. Don't Ithink because it's an end-run it's igoing to be easy; we'll be up agaipst air attacks, submarines, and maybe some shore fire. Here's Itlie picture." He stepped aside and i revealed what I later learned was |a small segment of shore line between Petiville and Bizcrte. K-K, who was close lo the blackboard, said, "Capfain, does them three swastikas and just one American flag mean the Germans outnumber us three to one?" "No," the captain said, "I didn't nave room to draw three flags" He turned lo the blackboard and erased two of the swastikas. "Now listen while I explain this. The Americans are pocketed at> Lar- cone because they're short on heavy ammunition. We've got to jget ammunition into Red Beach or else • make the Germans think we're going to land at Green or Yellow. It's almost impossible to get through to Red Beach because of the Island of Tone. So we'll make an end-run to Green. That may relieve enough pressure so they can break out of the pocket." "We may not get back, then." "That's right. I advise you to go down and hit your bunk. It may [be the last good night's sleep you'll • ever get." When the captain was gone, Spruce said, ">You children go on and catch a few winks so's you won't be red-eyed when you gits before St. Peter." Twice during the night we were alerted, but there was no raid. When everything was secured after the second alert, the crew's quar- ,ters wss very quiet, much quieter """ tt|w« Uta.ish*,, Tim HI) n,,n,— , N(A fcmct. bcT Dave said to everybody, "\Ve may ;el shot up." "So what?" Bert said. "We come a-purpose. Some heroes have to die." "I didn't come a-purpose," K-K said. "And- I sure want to get back in one piece." "Selfish." "Who ain't?" • * » AT exactly 1400 «-e were underway for Larcone. The sea was wonderfully calm and we were close enough in shore to see-the green hills of winter, bright in the warm sunshine. It was a glorious day lo die and I was not afraid, Ihcn. I was a part of it, a part of the great machinery of war which I had known so well from lamp- lighted pages. The sea to our left was so vast, the "hills lo our right were so green, and the sun was so bright that I could feel my heart pounding. I Imagined that Wallace and William must have felt that way just before a big game. I was the talker, standing on the conn to the left of the captain, repeating all of his orders to Blackwell, who repeatec them over the public-address system. Now and then I glanced down to B deck where Bert was standing by as loader /or (he No. 2 20mm., and once, by semaphore, I sent him a message to observe the high position I held while he was a mere loader. "Check handy-billies!" A handy-billy, a small pump with a gasoline motor, was the most temperamental of all Navy equipment. It always worked except during emergencies and inspections by "bird-dogs" — those high-ranking naval officers who paid unexpected visits to ships at all hours of the day and night, entering a ship exactly the same way a bird dog enters a brier patch. The captain had not heard the spurtin? of the No. 1 handy-billy, jo h* climbed up Ui« side of. LL* conn and leaned over. **!B it working?" "No, sir." "Don't you know we're In a state of emergency?" "Yessir, but the handy - billy don't." "That's not funny. JCeep trying." He turned to me. "Fass the word for Mr. Dclrnan to report to No. 1 handy-billy." "Mr. Belman. Report to No. 1 handy-billy." It sounded like an emergency cnll for a doctor. I thought the captain was going to fall off the conn while he leaned over to .watch maneuvers below. "Can we fix it?" "Just a minute, sir," Mr. Belman said. The captain climbed down and paced the conn, the way people will dp whcVi they cannot under- sland the simplest failure. "A graduate of M. I. T. and can't fix a handy-billy." The capfain spoke to Mr. Pruitt who had his binoculars trained over the bow. "A master's from K. I. T. What do you think of that?" ' • • • jy[R. PRUITT did not answer. The captain climbed onto the edge of the conn again and called down, "You know this is an emergency?" After a minute K-K looked up. "Captain, Mr. Belman says the handy-billy knows it but it don't give a hoot." "Throw it over the side!" Mr. Belman stood up. He was stocky, determined, sure of things- and the cleft (hat divided his chin seemed to indicate that he possessed two powers, either one of which was too much for an ordinary man. "What did you say. Captain? 1 * "I said throw it over the side." Mr. Belman picked it up and threw It overboard. He held the starting lanyard In his h a n d a piece of rope the size of one's little linger and about five feel long. He looked lip toward the conn and smiled—-it was hard to believe he was oniy 24 years old. "I'll keep this. It might come in handy." Twirling the lanyard around his wrist, he went back toward the engine room. Home Grown Hi-Bred Half and Half Cotton Seed $10 Per Hundred Clyde Williams Route 3 Lexington, Tenn.
