SURVIVES CRASH LANDING HEADQUARTERS 13TH AAF, SOUTHWEST PACIFIC — Enemy flak that knocked out one engine and set the remaining engine on fire failed to stop a 13th AAF B-25 medium bomber from carrying out a mission against Manado, strong ly-fortified Jap town in the north ern Celebes. The fighting crew, which includ ed Staff Sergeant John L. Thurs ton, gunner, 110 North Madison Street, Whiteville, N. C., kept the badly-damaged plane on its course I until they had straiea ana DomDea Manado. Then, only a few minutes be fore a possible explosion, they brought the B-25 down for a water crash landing. Jap troops rushed machine guns to the beach to fire at the fliers, who had left the sinking plane and were floating on rubber rafts 1,500 feet from shore. While other B-25s of the “jungle air force” formation strafed the beach to divert the machine gun ners, a 13th AAF Catalina flying boat landed and. picked up Ser geant Thurston and members of his crew. Bullets chopped the sea around them as the Catalina took off with the rescued men aboard. “I never thought we’d make it,” said Thurs ton, describing the mission as his toughest in a year of combat. They made it, however, and Ser geant Thurston was brought back to his New Guinea base, tired but ready to fight again. A member of the Crusaders, crack 13th AAF medium bomber outfit, Thurston has flown in numerous attacks against Rabaul and other South Pacific enemy bases. When the Crusaders clean ed up Rabaul, they moved to New Guinea to knock out airdromes in the Netherlands East Indies and sever the Japs’ supply lines. More than 200.000 Japs are stranded in the Indies, cut off from reinforce ments and supplies as a result of the daily Crusader patrols. ---v BUY WAR BONDS AND STAMPS Cold'Prepaiationt.asldimctpd -1 EASTER FLOWERS r (Easter Sunday— 1 April 1st) CORSAGES of Or- \ chids, Roses, Car- j nations, Gardenias, Sweet Peas, etc. p 0~i PLANTS— N Easter Lilies, Gar d e n i as.
