JOHNSTON United Press War Correspondent Parry Island, Enivvetok Atoll, Feb. 22 U.R--The American flag was raised triumphantly to the top of a house-high coconut stump Tuesday night, signifying that the battle of Eniwetok atoll was over. It was 7:30 p. ra.--after sunset --when the Stars and Stripes unfurled into the wind. But the men from the 22nd marines forgot tradition to celebrate the victory after they had fought for 10V hours without pause, not even" for a drink of water or food. There were flashes of fire still cominjr from the tip of the island, as t h e tireless leathernecks cleaned up the last of Hie Japanese snipers, but the island officially was secured. Complete conquest of the atoll was accomplished at. a relatively light cost to the 22nd marines and the 106th army infantry, while the Japanese lost almost all of their forces, estimated between 2,501) and 3,000 veteran Manchur- lan troops. ' Col. John T. Walker, commander of the marine regiment, dismissed the Parry victory as "just a routine landing" but the pride in his bloodshot eyes belied his words. In some respects, the fightin" on Parry actually was harder than on Eniwetok and Engebi islands, for the Japanese had dug incredible positions in the ground J'They lived like prairie dogs on this island," Walker said, "burrowing and the tunnelling under the ground and living: under mounds of earth which looked like molehills.',' In some" of these molehills, the marines dug up as many as 5 Japanese hiding in the stinking airless compartments, where they had been since the TJ. S. naval forces opened a heavy bombardment 5 days ago. Conquest of this island followed by only one day the American victory on Eniwetok island. \Va.r Takes Fatiiers Oklahoma City, Okla., (U.P.)-- State Selective Service Director Clive E.
