Brownfield C-C Hears Tech Man (3r Still Correspondent) BEOWNFIELD, Feb. 18.—Lynn Nelson was presented the distinguished award medal as the outstanding young man of Brownfield tonight.at an annual Americanism banquet of Brownfield Junior Chamber of Commerce m the American Legion hall. He is president of the chamber. Principal. speaker was -William M.

MacARTHUR ON THE BATAAN PENINSULA, Feb. 15. (Delayed)— Dear Boss, pleasa hire Johnny Weismuller for this assignment. I am getting too old to play Tarzan. Time magazine's correspondent Mel Jacoby and I were sitting on Corregidor dock th;'s afternoon waiting.to ride in one of the inshore naval patrol boats commanded by Lieut. Ted Raymond of Amesbury,' Mass. I was perch<=d atcp a ptii'.ig swinging my feet and trying to chew a mule steak sandwich. It was a nice calm afternoon. AH of u* reporters have had plenty o< excitement in thi» war. We've dodged shells, developed the knack of diving gracefully into foxholes, trampled over mountains, ridden tanks, climbed trees, bounced over the ocean in tiny patrol boats and inhaled tons of dust. We've buiied our nose* in concrete trenches during bombings and have been scar-' ed stiff a dozen times a week. This afternoon, J?coby and 1 were setting out tc see seme more Eataan fighting. But before v;e c.oild get to the war, it sneaked up on us. There was a distant thump of cannon, a scream of descending shells and nearby bursts shattering the peaceful afternoon. Then I wasn't on the piling anymore, but in the water of Manila bay, 20 feet below. So was Coxswain Harold Hershberger, Brooklyn, N. Y., who had been standing next to me. Jacoby and others or. the dock dived under a flat car from where they maje their way to a nearby bombproof shelter. Swimming with tin hat, Army shoes and camera isn't so difficult when you have falling shells to urge you on. Herrhherger and I figured the Japanese artillery cif th« south shore of Manila • bay was concentrating on the Corregidor dock area. The next rhell confirmed our guess so we paddled further under the pier and clung to the concrete pilings. A number of' high explosive shells hit the pier above our heads. Then the Japanese gradually lifted their range. Most shells fell harmlessly into the water throwing up thirty-foot columns of spray fringed with smaller sprsys from shrapnel. When the Jap guns shifted to other targets, we swain around to the other side of the pier through Diesel oil which covered us from head to foot. Then we climbed over barbed wire and made our way to a. place of safety by easy stages. We hit the dirt when shells came near, but neither of us was hurt except for scratches and small cuts.
