*AOT TITO BH'i'HBVILT,B, (ARK.) COTmTKR N15WS HOBDAY juriB H, f900 Reporter Tells of 1942-45 Life At Airbdsein Southern Japan 'By TOM WMKERT < AN AMERICAN AIRBASB IN SOUTHERN JAPAN, June 28. (AP) —walking Into this alrbase today Is like walking bao klnto 1942-45. Thus nerve center for air operations and base for tighter* !» on a war footing—with some strictly non-war modifications. There are move men here wcar- ng sldearms than there> were at many wartime bases. In the briefing rooms It's 1942-43 all over again. A slim, hard-eyed major tells transport pilots to take off at split, minute intervals. "And you'll have fighter covet from the time you sight the place until you leave," he adds. ' . Over in a fighter squadron ready : room, its green front marked bold- I ly and vividly by the black panther. insignia of the outfit, perspiring pilots Just back from fighter cover missions talk and.gesture as excitedly as they used tp do at Guadalcanal or in England or North Africa. Out on the airstrip there are fighters with their gun ports scorched and blackened by lire which poured through them. In a snack bar, transport pilots talk wearily over cups of coffee about their relief at knowing the fighters were around when they landed, loaded and took off from Kimpo or Suwon. "But," one of them says, "those B-26's are crazy—and one of those goofy jet pilots scared the life out of me when he pulled right underneath me." That certainly sounded like 194245. . There are odd features also. There are Japanese guards around buildings cobwebbed • with radar and other mysterious looking apparatus. Pilots step from ready rooms into latest model automobiles. Those cars should be jeeps or weapon carriers or trucks to make the war picture complete. At the base clubs, bare-shoulrier- 'ed women eat quietly with hus- bands'who B few hours earlier rode lighters through Korean skies, their fingers on mnchlnegun triggers. But ihe Sedans and the Japanese guards and the women don't offset these scorched giinports or movies showing American pilots shooting down Communist airplanes or' fliers talking .about painting red. stars on th« fuselages of their planes.
