MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 1945 Installation Ceremonies Held Navy Nurse Asks Return to Philippines By BONNIE WILEY AP Newsfcalures Writer San Francisco--Ann Bernatitus, navy nurse .who escaped by submarine from Corregidor a scant 2 days before "the Rock" fell, is going back. "I hope it will be to the Philippines. That's what I'm counting on," said the attractive Exeter, Penn., girl, while awaiting transportation from^ San Francisco to the war zone. Lt. (j. g.) Bernatitus, to whom the days of the fall of the Philippines seem like a terrifying nightmare, wants to see the tables turned on the Japs. Only navy nurse on either Ba' taan or Corregidor, Lt. Bernatitus, 11 army/nurses and a navy wife, crept aboard an Australia- bound submarine in the black of night on May 3, 1942, while Japanese searchlights swept the Corregidor shore in a vain hunt for them. "First thing the submarine crew did was serve us hot tea and cake and we all cried because we'd forgotten there were such things in the world," she smiled. "I had grown accustomed to horse and buffalo meat and to canned salmon and rice. I remember one week we had nothing else to eat--and for breakfast, that's not good. I haven't eaten any rice since." Ann Bernatitus reported for duty at the U. S. Naval hospital, Canacoa, Philippine Islands, in July, 1940. She recalls: "After the first Jap attack we evacuated our patients to the army hospital at Manila. I was in a surgical team that was assigned to Bataan, so on Christmas day we were setting up our hospital along the Camp Limay beach." From dawn until midnight the understaffed hospital crews worked on an ever-increasing number of patients. ^ "We were in and out of fox holes part of the time but the surgery was next to an electric generator which madeiso much noise we couldn't hear the air raids and Superior COLD WAVES Under tb SvpervUioa of MBS.

Two days before Bataan fell, riother evacuation came, this time o Corregidor. 'We raced to the docks in busses vithout headlights down a zigzag rail. Sheer precipices fell off on ach side of the trail," she said. After almost a month of living ind caring for the wounded in the ock-hewn tunnels of Corregidor, it. Bernatitus was ordered one afternoon to be ready to leave that night. "I don't know yet how we were hosen," she said. "They didn't tell us. Almost everybody remaining ined up to wave goodbye when ye loaded onto the cars. It was ike starting off on a gala picnic, except that we didn't know whether or not we'd get out alive."
