HEROIC ACTIONS OF MEN TOLD Eye-Witness Account of Hornet Is Released (The United Press war correspondent ivho wrote the following dispatch has been compelled by reasons of military security enforced by naval censorship, to suppress one of the best stories of the Pacific war since Oct. 26. On that date, he witnessed (he death of the aircraft carrier Hornet, and now. with official permission, describes it.) By CHARLES P. ARNOT United Press Staff Correspondent HEADQUARTERS. U N IT F D ;TATES FLEET, PEARL HARBOR, --UB)--A seaman, lying on the blistering deck of the cripplec aircraft carrier Hornet as enemy planes shrieked down, tried to -·limb'off his stretcher "to have another shot at the Japs." A man with a broken back tried io refuse a surgeon's care so his buddy could be treated first. Four men ran to throw a blazing, bone-searing incendiary bomb off the deck. Men rammed powder into almost red hot guns with their bare hands when the automatic controls, were knocked out. * * * Those are a few of the scores of incidents that made American heroes and American history when the 11 United States warships, whose names were made public Tuesday, were sunk in the South Pacific last fall, all fighting to the last. * * ¥ I was with the flccf. I saw the hit that crippled the Hornet, anc I heard at first hand the stories o officers and men in all four engagements concerned. Japan paid a price for those ships which her navy should never forget. The score was: Hornet--Sunk in the battle ,,,. Santa Cruz Oct. 2G. Japan paic with a large aircraft carrier damaged and probably sunk and two cruisers and three destroyers sunk by the Hornet's planes. Cruisers Atlanta and Juneau destroyers Laffey. Cushing, Mons- sen and Barton--Japan paid with me battleship, three heavy and two light cruisers and five destroyers sunk. Destroyers Preston, Walker and ienham--Japan paid with one battleship, three large cruisers and one destroyer sunk. Cruiser Northampton _ Japan mid with nine ships which tried o land men and supplies on Guadalcanal island. Japan lost at least 25 warships, possibly a big carrier and at least 125 planes for our 11 ships and unspecified number of planes. * * ¥ The ships which we sank car- icd to their deaths thousands ot Japanese troops and seamen. The ctions staved off two big attempts o. recapture Guadalcanal. From a battleship which alone hot down 32 planes I watched the battle of Santa Cruz. Oct. 26 in -.-Inch the Hornet was the victim a mad aerial attack. Our destroyers sank the Hornet f!er two Japanese attacks had iddled her with bombs. From my observation post I saw he Japanese planes shriek down. The Hornet had sent out its planes o bomb a Japanese task force 00 odd miles to the north. They leavily damaged at least two ruisers and three destroyers in ddition to planting four to six ,000 pound bomhs on a new oir- raft carrier ot the Zuikaku class, USE 666 TABLETS. SALVE.

It was a raging furnace when they lelt it. * * * But the Japanese were send- ine wave upon wave of dive' bombers and torpedo planes against the Ilornet and its escort. American fighter planes and the anti-aircraft guns shot down many of them, but Ihe remainder dived on through a hell of fire. Our ship was several thousand yards from the Hornet. It was 9:55 a. m. Singly, in pairs, in threes and fours, at least 40 Japanese planes hurtled down on the Hornet, coming out of the sun through low scattered clouds. They were almost on the ship before the gunners could spot them. The Hornet twisted, circled, to no avail. I saw a sudden cloud of smoke. flash and a "There goes the Hornet," an officer said. I told him he was too pessimistic. But the big carrier began spouting heavy black smoke. We were not yet under- attack, but we had to protect another of our carriers, and ive steamed away at high speed from the Hornet and its escorts. * * * As we left I saw a Japanese plane crash on the Hornet's flisht deck. Two others crashed later. I saw the Hornet listing to, port, smoking fiercely. One bomb had landed near its stack and its power supply was diminishing rapidly. I knew the ship had suffered badly but my hopes rose during- the afternoon when I was told it would be able to receive some of its own planes, which had been out fightine. ff _y_ .,. The first attack lasted nearly lalf an hour. Then came a five lour lull during which the heroic crew got the fires under control. All the wounded were transferred to other ships. There was hope that the Hornet :ould get entirely out of the combat zone but the Japanese planes came back--horizontal bombers and torpedo planes. Torpedoes hit. The Hornet was past salvage. Despite the fatal damage, casualties were relatively light and many officers and men of the rfornet watched as the destroyers steamed up and shelled it to death. Lieut. Comdr. L. L. Bean. Santa Ana, Cat., surgeon of the Hornet, told some of the stories ot heroism. "She was game u, i ne end." he said. "She took it like a lady.

Astoria and Vincennes went down Aug. 9. in [he first phase of four Solomons oflcn- ?ivc.

Her pow- er was gone and she could not be repaired on the spot. * * * The Juneau, sister ship of the Atlanta, xvas damaged in the action. It was steaming toward base when an explosion sent it to the bottom. "It just happened all at once and the Juneau was gone," an officer who watched from a nearby cruiser told me.

"I didn't know this committee would want to sit down with us around a table.'' As an example of widespread unemployment among musicians, Petrillo cited the case ot 40 musicians who have been striking against Ringling Brothers Bar- six "Are they walking the streets'"' asked Senator D. Worth Clark, D., Iowa. "Aren't they in defense industries?" "They don't want to go into defense industries." Petrillo answered. They want to be musicians-" "So do I," said Clark. "I don't want to be a senator.'' - Petrillo said he was not against amateur musicians, except when they take jobs away from professionals. He said many a lime as ;t boy he hart Bone away from c o n c e r t s "broken hearted" because the union wouldn't let him play. "What is your instrument'.'" Ciark asked.

Wavell's British imperial legions tlrving back into Burma from India were, reported meeting stiffened Japanese resistance Tuesday, while elsewhere in the Pacific conflict Australian warplanos were credited with probably sinking a Japanese cruiser or a light destroyer. A brief communique from British headquarters in India said General Wavell's columns met ''strong" Japanese defenses in their thrust down the Mayu peninsula along the Bay of Bengal. The communique said there was no important change in the Rathe- daung sector. 25 miles northwest ·eportcd battling the enemy. RAF planes engaged in a concerted "softening up" campaign against Japanese military targets in Burma were reported striking in widespread attacks, blasting enemy rail and water communications. JAP FLAKE LOSSES IX SOLOMONS TOTAL 680 In the Solomon islands, a navy bulletin reported, American flyers shot down four out of 12 Japanese zero fighters Monday when the enemy attacked a flight of U. S. dive bombers escorted by wildcat fighters between Santa Isabel and New Georgia islands. Altogether, the Japanese have now lost SEO planes in the Solomons campaign, the navy said. The navy said another force of American, marauder bombers, escorted by niracobra fighters' attacked Japanese positions at Munda. 130 miles north or American-defended Guadalcanal, where the, enemy has been building a new air field under repeated assaults by U. S. airmen. JAPS TRY TO INCREASE LAGGING WAR OUTPUT Meanwhile, the Japanese gov- .ernment invoked the prestige of Emperor Hirohito in an attempt to step up Japan's lagging war production and offset the gigantic output of American supplies as disclosed by President Roosevelt. A Tokio broadcast said the mi- kado planned to send imperial aides-de-camp to scrutinize the nation's war foundries, and Premier Gen. Hidcki Tojo called on the workers to "set his imperial majesty's mind at rest . . . by exerting every effort." ALLIED PLANES HAMMER AT JAPANESE ARMADA In the southwest Pacific, allied headquarters declared that Australian flyers, hammering away at a big Japanese armada reported massing in New Britain waters, scored a direct torpedo-hit amidships on a Japanese warship off Gasmata. 'The ship was not visible at daybreak and is believed to have sunk during the night," n com- munique said.

Hansen was an SUI college of medicine senior, and Miss De- Muelenaere was a graduate nurse. * * * Bodies or the two were found Monday afternoon after a cabin camp attendant became alarmed and c a l l e d Johnson County Sheriff Preston K o s e r after many hours passed with no sign of life ill the cabin which the pair engaged at 1:30 a. m. Sunday. ¥ * * An autopsy performed Monday night by Dr. Frank L. Love, coroner, failed to disclose the cause of death, he said, and Sheriff Koser added that an investigation failed to show by what means the couple had died. Sheriff Koser and Coroner Lova gave this report on the deaths: The bodies, both badly deteriorated, were found on the bed in the cabin. A small gas stove was burning on the floor and heat within the small structure was intense. The bodies were blistered and almost unrecognizable, apparently from effects of the heat. Their condition made it impossible to fix the time of death \vith any accuracy. There were no wounds or bruises on the bodies and there was no sign 'of violence, struggle nor of "outside interference.". No notes were left. Identification of Hansen, who was married, .was by fellow students. Miss DC Muclenaere's body was identified by her parents. Hansen was president of the junior class in the college of medicine last year. -- -. at 6:15 p. m.
