MORNING AVALANCHE •-. By FRANK HEWLETT *Uniied Press Staff Correspondent „. WITH MacARTHUR'S FORCES -JN THK PHILIPPINES, Feb. 12. *—The gun erupted with a roar Ayhich jolted me backward, a bril- Jliant flame lanced out and I heard <a hallow swishing sound from the 'fhell. »>. Looking through the glasses I £aw it Jiit and a few seconds later v jhe sound of the explosion washed «back. • It was "right on the nose." The Shell struck just where'the lieu- •fensnt at the gun controls had said •it would strike. £ Were Blasting Japanese ;; I was seeing Gen. Douglas Mac- -Arihur's artillerymen in action— •and they were sending over "spe- ^cial delivery" packages of death .at the Japanese, blasting them, 'blasting their guns and blasting [their machines. ^ It was dawn on the front lines •in Bataan. ;• Through the night I had been .with the gunners, whose accuracy iBiight have been responsible, up •to now, for cheating the Japanese [of victory. * Countless rounds of TNT-loaded •shells have been dumped on the jenwny positions. Crews behind the ,guns have been mostly Filipinos •jiow seasoned campaigners who learned the hard way—as they fought. '.: The fire has been deadly, shown ;fay our own observations, by docu- jTjen^s found on dead Japanese officers and by our intelligence rc- •ports. ^ I stood with a battery which .swept a wide area, virtually destroying everything within hun- "dreds of yards. * I stuffed my ears with cotton, back-stepping from the force of -every shot. ' Three miles away, on the infantry front lines, the shots were 'striking home. Over and over the |frim task went—the loading, fir- 3ng, the shells striking, spewing death: * Instructions Telephoned ,, At a vantage point nearby were American officers. They telephoned down instructions to the gun crews. ; ' New targets were picked.

I found lighter artillery Slamming over more packages of Eeath. Those batteries were well covered as a precaution against ppotting by planes. Ae soon as " . ^Charlie"— the enemy— disappear ed from the sky, the guns would open up with a new barrage over pur infantry into the Japanese lines: Guns Virtually Intact While marshal of the Philippine army, an artillery officer told me, Douglas MacArthur was responsible for getting guns from the United States which now are outdistancing the best the Japs have ox his withdrawal to this" area of land stand" he brought his gun units virtually intact.

W. B Irvin said Thursday. The day has been officially proclaimed by Gov. Coke Stevenson as a holiday for schools so that moldings may be used for the registration. As Lubbock draft boards have made other arrangements for places to register there will be no need for schools to take a holiday, Dr. It-win said. Schools Cooperating 'We are cooperating with the draft boards by furnishing them with interpreters for Spanish- speaking registrants but as we have already set our schedule of holidays and need all the time possible for our regular session it would seem foolish to take a holiday Monday when the buildings are not needed," Dr. Irvin" said. _ "Gov. Stevenson's proclamation was made only to provide places for registration if they were needed," Dr. Irvin said, "and the action by Lubbock officials is in no way contrary to his declaration."
