MASON (For Hal Boyle) MANILA.—<#>)—Col. John G. Pugh, who as senior aide to Gen. Jonathan Wainwright became an almost, legendary figure of derring- do during the last days of Corregidor, has returned to "The Rock" to reclaim records which somehow (survived a fire he himself had set deep within Malinta tunnel. Pugh, once described by Wnin- wright as "more like a son," spent more than three years in Japanese prisons. He came here as a witness In the .war crimes trial of Lt. Gen. Mastiharu Horhma. His arrival followed by only a day or two the discovery of charred records, some of them signed by Wain- wrlght, others by junior officers, in a lateral of Malinta tunnel. Pugh, amazed at the recovery, told Lt. Col. Leroy Greene of Harrisburg, Pa., executive officer for a combat history unit, that he personally had carried the records there, ignited them an "watched until they were fairly well consumed." The blaze apparently dio.d ov.t. leaving some undamaged. The J-,i- ancse never disturbed the pil- — and by curious turn of fate there Mew They're Talking About Jlf-Propefled Oners .r.d That post-postwar world sure will be great if only half the wonderful things that arc being dreamed up now come true. Latest is the jet-propelled ocean liner, shown in model form above. It was designed by J. Tomadelli of New York City, who says it will carry 6000 passenger? acrors the ocean in 30 hours at approximately $50 per round trip. He estimates the cost of the 1100-f i, . vessel at $35^000,000. ;ho papers remained until crews wern called to clean away the debris of a minor tunnel rave-in. Landing at bomb-marked navy dock, Pugh. and his party went through thr: tunnel to a. spot on the old "market place," near the foot of Dr-n-'or hill whcir Waimvright handed his document of surrender to a Japanese colonel. , Carefully, Pugh eyed the landscape, spotted again several familial- reference points. Briskly lie stepped away to a location which he said marked the northwest corner of the old market plane. "It was right here." he remarked. For five hours Pugh led his party by jeep and afoot, first to the surrender spot, then Denver hill, then to "topside," location of barracks, officers' quarters, the old parade ground and a lighthouse. E..nvn the rc'ay. along ofikrn' ;uvv. were the timbered ruins of n house which left to board a submarine for the United Stales just before "The Bock" fell.
