MASON BALANGA, Bntaan — (/PI—Two army staff officers who survived Bataan's death march, traveled iieain I heir roar! of tragic remembrance \\ few days ago, and found both disappointment and a challenge along the rough way through the jungle. Disappointment, they said, "that time and. perspective have changed the scene a lot." and a challenge, in that "Die country must see to it that we never have another Bataan or anything half so horrible." They were Col. John H. Ball of Williamsporl, Pa., corps artillery officer for Maj. Gen. George H. Parker's Second corps, unrt Majcr Ach- Jlle G. Tisdollc <232 E. Walton place; Chicago, aide to Maj.

King, commander of Luzon forces who on April 9. 1942, capitulated to Japanese General Masahaura Hom- nm in a schoolhousc in this village. Nearly four years later, the road of America's Oethesemahc was lined with the rusty, rotting relics of that army. Return of the two officers to this peninsula was arranged not only as a "sentimental journey" for two men who spent more' than three years each in Japanese prisons, but, more importantly, to prove army historians with first-hand accounts of the death march by men whose official status at the time of surrender, gave them possession of information available only to a few. Up the road toward Cabcaben, the still-while painted slogan in 12- inch letters "keep 'em flying" appeared on the wide - spreading roots of a balcte tree — mocking reminder of a clay when the hopes of a besieged army were pinned on planes which had not yet been built. A three-foot iguana slithered from our path. "Tastes like chicken," wryly remarked Tisdele, "or a little like •snake meat." On through Limay and Lamao, and twice Colonel Ball halted the party, once pointing to an old kilo- nit-: er-nost at the roadside: "Right over there I was clipped across the temple with a Jap riflc- biitt beciiu.'ie the iniurd .said I was leading the column too slowly," lie said. Not far .away, we entered a cleared space bordered on one sitlc by a banana and bamboo thicket. "In there," Bull remarked, "Bodies were piled—they were thick. "We had gone far enough when we reached here so that the marchers were very weak and dying fast."
