By SIIKRMAN MONTROSE eme Nwspicfures Camefimah Written for NBA Service AMGHITKA ISLAND, Aleutians r~ "Moat-plane Joe from Tokyo" liasn'i lieen a'raund lately and u. S. forces on ihLs Aleutian outpost fear he's somewhat discouraged— if he Isn't dend. They have n nice reception all planned for Tojo when he calts again from nclghliorlng klska and they hope lie Imsn't been scared off. A bombing by "Float-plane Joe" nnd his pals Is better than n U. S. O. show. Everyone has, just llie heal time. It's fun for nil. Tojo comes sliding in out of the usual hiiv.e that shadows this spongy, lerrnln, niakos a run ori his target. A watching gunner spots him nnd tracers from .S0-callber -machine guns, 20-mll- limcter cannon and 37's rip across the-skies. . Tojo cuts the same acrobatics lie effects In the South Pacific dodging, shirting, weaving like a tied 'Graiijjc. or a Tommy Harmon, until he drops his presents ami gets:ihe : hell out of here. TOJO, HAD CINCH Many times since U. 'S. troops arrived here, in a move that threw Japan' for a new loss in the Aleutians,- pontoon plnnes have 'come over from klsk'a to furnish entertainment where entertainment is scarce. Klska is as far away as a weekend drive before rationing, .Each lime bill the last time''over, Tojo hail things pretty much his own- way.-'Anli-alrel'aft 'caine'clos- er, sure, but no large'ts lurhbled out 'of tlie skies and 'ground gunners '•: admittedly hadn't "settled down" (a culm sliooting at shifty targets. On • the last visit Hie prides of Nippon met nn unpleasant surprise. They had been staging raids to arrive over this spongy Inud-hple either before protective P-38's from another base had'arrived in Ihe morning, or after they had hauled for lioinc ill night. • / Again they cainc, confident'of fllr.sunrchincy «'Hh their'two Zero float 'fighters, scornful of ground defenses.

Neither lived to tell his flying mates the breed of pilots America is sending to its westernmost base. February ended without another vlsitnlion from their neighbors When Major Clayton j. Larson Favgo. N. D., knocked down the first, plane over Amchltka nnd a flying mate, Lt. E. J. "Hocky" Stone, 'Glendale, Calif., rede another into Ihe white-caps of the North Pacific, Tojo stopped to think things over.. For n time after that reconnaissance planes scouting Kisku harbor spotted no 1 enemy planes on the water. That Tojo could have hid them out isn't impossible, but in clear weather tlie cintonrs of the Aleutians read like : ah 1 open book from the air, and Klska - Is no exception. Army iind.Nnvy intelligence itin'y know where the Zeros arc hiding today, but the Information is -sec- vet. Shortly after the last disastrous (for Tojo) raid, a Navy PBV patrol boat swapped a few shots with a Zero not to fur from Kiska. No hits, no runs. No one hurt. This Is a stark land with little entertiiinment. There are no movies, no U.S.O. shows, no canteen!;, no beer, no pogie-bait, few radios, few hand-cranked record players. Mail arrives but rarely 'and the men need entertainment. They want Tojo lo come back. .•'.••. Next time, the ground gunners vow, they'll do better.
