Malcto stated, to break up Japanese concentrations of men and supplies that under cover of darkness each night for many days came onto the 'Canal. So many of the bic U. S. guns wore in action that the supply depots had trouble keeping enough shells on hand for ihc daily bombardments the local soldier stated. ;n his bunt for a way of getting more shells up to the guns, Sgt. Maielo found a ton and one-half Chevrolet truck usced originally by the Japanese, but which had been knocked! out of action by American lire. The local soldier stated that the truck was pockmarked with -bullet and -shrapnel holes but that the motor had not. been hit. Pressing into service another soldier of his detail. Sergeant Maleto. while under fire most of the time, replaced brakes, armature clutch plate and other incidentals on the Jap truck and finally got it into working order. This addition to the U. S. artillery supply line which up to thai lime .consisted of only one truck, :L 3 3-2 lonner, kept the guns well supplied with shells and ihc const-ant. bombardment effectively throttled Jap counter attacks, aid- od in ihe clearance of the i5la;-,d, •and saved many American lives.

The local soldier weighed 260 pounds when he \vcnt into tlie war none, but lost '15 pounds during the fighting oiy the 'Canal where the constant warfare, the heat and rain made regular rest and meals something to read about. He now weighs only 136 pounds but looks well and fit. Sergeant Malcto's eyes gleamed when bo was asked about the heavy guns he was with on the battle lines. He stated that American artillery was the best in the world and American artillerymen are i,hc boys who can really make those big guns talk—and hit. The veteran soldipr wears the new gold stripes for overseas service, and has a host of campaign ribbons and stars that he wears only occasionally. , Following his furlough, which he £oi when his name w;u? drawn from a Imt on an island in the Pacific, he reports Ixick lo Camp Buttner, N.
