PAGE FOUR CHAUARLON IN THICK OF OAHHATTLE Jap Plane May Have Been Hit by His i Gun Fire. Mrs D. P. Smith has recently had word from her brother, Chas. B. Carlon, former Algona boy now in the navy and in command of a fleet of four minesweepers at Pearl Harbor. Charles survived the December Jap raid and was not even hurt, though he was aboard his flagship, which was moored within a stone's throw of Hickam Field. He wrote: "My second officer was spending the weekend on the other side of the island, it being our time off for repairs. Others of my men were on shore with their families. The boys on shore later reported that the Japs flew so low over housetops that the ships could have been hit with •stones thrown by hand. "I had shaved and was debating whether to take a shower before or after breakfast. Then I heard a couple of distant explosions in the navy yard and saw planes diving. Next there were explosions and fires at Hickam t Field, and the air was full of planes. Fires at Jap Plane. "The planes circled us, but no one in my ship was hurt; per- } haps we were too small to be, noticed. My ship did get guns ; mounted and operating, puny as • they are, but whether we got a ' Jap plane will never be known, j "I saw one Jap plane on the ! tail of an army bomber coming | in to land, and the Jap was gain- j ing fast, almost ready for the j kill. I yelled, 'Get that so-and-1 so!' And our guns turned on him. j I couldn't tell whether he fired, i but he pulled straight up, turned ! on his side, and made off behind j a point of land behind where I j couldn't see him. The m c n j claimed he fell into the ocean. ] "Other Jap planes were flying j "by, most of them so low that we I could make out their pilots' den- , tal bridgework—even the slant of their eyes; but,, short a few ! men and with no other officer j aboard, I was kept too busy get- i ting under way to pay much attention to them. I didn't have time to eat till night, and it was two days before I had my clothes off. Hopes Japs Return. "Like all others in the U. S. •armed service here we have been hopeful every day that the Japs I would come back; but they know ! well enough what mass suicide it i •would be, and so are keeping their distance. I'm not idly "boasting either. There are more planes and everything else here now than to begin with, despite the destruction of December 7, and we are all ready. "Christmas with us was just another day. No one was allowed to go ashore. I have had only iour (Jays off in a month. New Year's was more like Christmas for me, for I received a package from home. With blackouts at •night, life has been rather mon- •otonous here of late. In an Ad- •vance I noticed a list of Kossuth boys here, but Mel Peter- .son is the only one I know." 4 GROUP HERE ATTENDS WEDDING AT EM'BURG Among Algonians who attended the wedding of Ellen Newell, Emmetsburg, former Algona teacher, to Merrill, son of Mr. and Mrs. M.

C. S. Whitehouse, Haflan Blanchard, Walter Thompson, and N. L. Cotton attended a nine-county meeting of the Boy Scout Prairie Gold Area council at the Elks club rooms at Fort Dodge Thursday evening. Mr. Whitehouse, district commissioner, the president, and the vice president were awarded the Silver Beaver, highest rank in scouting. This award is given only for "distinguished service to boyhood." Mr. Whitehouse has an outstanding record in the field of scouting. Quoting from the Fort Dodge Messenger: "Mr. Whitehouse, long a scoutmaster 'on the firing line' with boys at Omaha and Paton, also with continuous service in various capacities, was one of the most surprised leaders at the meeting when his silver beaver award was presented. "A life scout, 9-year veteran, and recipient of the highest training award (the scoutmaster's key), Whitehouse has served his boys well and as scoutmaster of a troop in a small community has been the salvation of many boys. "As a member of the Fort Dodge camp staff, Whitehouse's work has been highly valuable to the camp director. Scouters throughput the council area were well pleased to hear that Whitehouse had received this high honor, and they expect him to be inspired to do a bigger and better job of scouting during 1942."
