DETROIT, MICH., SUNDAY, JUNE 17, 1945 C 808 TALES A Reserves in Battle, Too, Sweat It Out on 'Bench' NOTE— At the invitation of Bob Murphy, sports editor of the Times, Copt. David I. Zoitlin of the U. S. Marines, a former sports correspondent from Arbor for the Times, takes over today's Bob Tales. Capt. Zeitlin spent 36 months in the south Pacific and was in such campaigns as Vella La Vella, Guam and at Iwo Jima. He is wearer of the Silver Star and Purple Heart. He is in command of the marines aboard the LST-612, located at the foot of Woodward avenue. By CAPT. DAVID I. ZEITLIN, VSMCR C. O. Marine Detachment, LST-512 In the world of sport* the men who cover the various games, meets, tournaments and to forth, usually concentrate their writings on the men who actually partici pate on the playing field. Occasionally, however, an Imaginative scribe will realize that there is a story dow n on the bench where the coach is having his customary session of nervous apasms and the reserves suffer the pain of every shock and jolt received by their teammates in the game, and what is more, suf fer the anxiety of a likely entry into the fray at any sudden moment. In our world of w’ar there is a distinct parallel to this situation as war correspondents concen trate their efforts on the actual fighting, write almost exclusively of the men in battle. But, as in sports, there is in war a story to be told about the reserves, thoae men who bide their time on the proverbial bench, aware of every occurrence in the battle, awaiting the call that will send them into the fight. This is the story about sitting out a battle, the fiery fracas the marines fought at Iwo Jima. Speculate Whether They'll Get In Our entire division, which included three infant tv regiments, was in the reserve. As the convoy moved north towurri * rendez vous area near Iwo, speculation was rank as to whether or not we would get into the battle. The island was so small most didn’t think there’d be room on It for three divisions and the men who were willing to wager we'd get ashore got odds. As the convov approached Iwo, orders were changed and one regiment of our division was ordered to the alert. It was like a coach telling a sub to warm up D-Day came and the two assault divisions landed. The starters In this "game" had gone ir\, We of ti were off shore in tramports. Technically, we were the “floating reserve,'' the 'bench'' being a whole group of attack trarv-iiorts and cargo vessel- The word made the rounds of our ship that the captain of the ■hip had a son. a sergeant, making the landing in the assault with the Fifth Regiment. This brought all hands closer to the battle ■nd we all shared the skipper s anxiety for hi- son. 'Any Word of Skipper's Son?' All Ask We felt for him strongly, for here was a father with his son ■*horr. and shore was fire and misery and everything awful Any word about the skipper’s ton” became a common query. There was no word for seven da>* Then the boy himself came aboard, a bright and clean-cut lad of 20. the skipper’s onlv son. He had been through a week of fire but was cheerful, full of spirit and life. He Visited with his father for a few' hours, then went back to the beach. Two days later the hoy esmr back to the ship, lie had been through more fire. He was still cheerful. He talked to his dad about his mother. He was worried about his mother. He wondered how she'd take it. TAKE IT? A Jap mine had gotten the hoy. The aecond visit to his father's ship he was minus both legs, one arm and the hand on the other. Vet he was alive, lived for aeveral hours, conscious and worried about how his mother would take It until he passed away aboard his father's ship. From the decks of our ships we could see b:g Jap shells ex ploding behind our lines Several nights we lookro on as our am munition dump* burned and exploded, making pyrotechnic displays but making it clear that vital artillery shells were being lost and that the Japs were raising hell behind our lines. One Place to Land, One Place to Go A few davs later the second of the three infantry regiment- in ®ur division was committed, and we were placed on 15-minutr -tand b>. We had debarkation drills riailv We kept abreast of the situation We studied aerial photos. •nd when our titxije. were bold up we knew why. Iwo Jima was for defense ie wa- only one place an Invading l< rc< could land finer force landed, there wa- onlv one way it could go The Japs knew that and*had donfc a beautiful job of getting ready. It was just like a football game in which one of the teams was allowed only one plav. It had to use that play, and only that play, even though the othrr tram knew it and hud ft ‘■f** *-■*l d*dket-uf». 1o stop it. The marines had one play on Iwo. and although they were smeared time after time, they kept on driving. Intensive study of pictures and the re|M>rts by casualties made It clear that the terrain on Iwo was the worst yet encoun tered. both from a tactical and phvsical standpoint. The volcanic ash was a powdery duj*t; you sank into It when you walked, it filtered through your clothes Into your skin. It didn’t do your lungs any good when It got In them, which it did. We learned from casualties that a lot of our tri*nd< had l>een killed. We had a spanking new second lieutenant aboard our ship. He was a replacement, was sent ashore to take over what wa- left of a hard-hit platoon. He hadn't been ashore a da> when the word came back that he had been killed. As Baffle Rages, Men Waif, Waif . . . The casual!irs were the most mutilated we had ever seen Giant Jap mortars, rockets and artillery were taking off nior< arm- and legs than we had experienced previously They were fighting a historical battle ashore and we on the floating bench waited. Waited. Waited. We were scared, but we wanted to go in; let there be no mistake about that. Our regimental commander darn near got himself locked up trying to get us into the fight. The privates kept pestering me, “When are we going in, captain, when are we going in"" Our bat talion commander was raring to go, and he kept trying to find out when, when we were going ir.. I find it almost unavoidable to analyze the psychology whereby men and officers are sineerely desirous of subjecting themselves to a fight when they can see beforehand what It might cost them. In spite of the presence of mutilated casualties, arm leas, legless, disfigured, maimed; In spite of the knowledge of the fact that the Japs were using new and powerful weapons, in spite of the dismal conditions, the Intricately and heavily defended positions. In spite of a stark realization that to go ashore meant hell for all and the end for many, the marines wanted to go in. The answer is probably the fact that the American b«>y is an eternal optimist, but what is rhore, he holds more dear than Mfe itself bis He If-respect. It is hardest of all to be around when there's a fight, to know your friends are in it, and not join them. To those of us who were at Iwo, but not in the fight, there shall always he a question? “What would have happened to us had we gone In?” _ We’ll never know. Like the guy on the bench who expected into the game—but didn’t. Ike Anticipating Giants-Braves' Game WASHINGTON. June 16 (INS) —Gen. Dwight D Eisenhower let It be known today that he is looking forward to seeing the New York Giants play the Bos ton Braves at the New York Polo Ground* next Tuesday. % A /V CAPT. DAVK ZEITLIN Dolph Camilli Signs With Red Sox Nine WASHINGTON. June 16 iINS) Dolph Camilli. left-handed first baseman, has agreed to terms with the Boston Red Sox and will join the club within a week, it was announced today. Camilli recently was released by Oakland. Polynesian, 12-1 Shot, Wins Rich Preakness Hoop Jr. Second, Darby Dieppe 3d By OKUAR FRALEY BALTIMORE, June 16 (UP> Mr*. P. A. B. Widener’s Poly nesian bested the mighty Hoop Jr. today and won the richest Break* ness in the history of old Pimlico. A sweating, shirt-sleeved crowd of 30,(XX) saw the fleet son of Un breakable, * with Wayne Wright bobbing in the saddle, break on top ann run the Kentucky Derby champion into the Jight tan track before they hit the first turn. He stayed on top all the finished two and a half lengths in front of the favert'd Rose Run colt. Polynesian ran the mile and three-sixteenths in 1:58 4-5. Darby Dieppe, third in the Derby, once more came home in the show position. I'AVOT FIFTH The Widener winner returned $26.00, $6.70 and $3.80, having left the gate a 12 to 1 shot in the field of nine. Hoop Jr. paid $3.20 and $2.60 and Darby Dieppe gave his backers a $4.30 pay off The Doge was fourth. Pavot, fifth; Sea swallow, Sixth: Alexis, seventh; Adorns, eighth and Boba net. ninth. Polynesian shattered the dream that Hoop Jr., the pride of Ala bama contractor F. Red Hooper, would become one of turfdom’s greats by adding the Preakness and Belmont Stakes to his Derby triumph. Only six horses in his tory have turned that feat Sir Barton. Gallant Fox, Omaha. War Admiral. Whirlaway and Count Fleet—and little Hoop was not of their company. RIC HEST PURSE Polynesian, a supplementary starter who wasn't named origi nally for the run for the black eyed Susans, earned the richest purse in the 55 runnings of this historic fixture. The gross value of the purse was $87,670 and the net value to Mrs. Widener wa* $66,170, more than Hoop Jr.'s winnings of $64,850 in the Derby. The time. 1:58 4-5, did not men ace the Preakness record of 1:57 which bargain-buy Alsab set in 1942. But it was plenty good enough to win. It was tight going for a while, as the field blasted out of the barrrier with Hoop Jr and Pavot. the undefeated 1944 juvenile champion, matching strides along the rail and the others bunching down the middle. But on the first trip past the grandstand and down the turk into the back stretch. Polyne-ian sticking his muzzle into the lead. William Helis Rounders, piloted by Freddie Remeisrheid who was to ride Helis' Adonis in the Preak ness scored a five-length win in the $30,000 added Dixie Handicap, the race before the run for the Susans. He Rolls was second and Gay Bit third as Rounders rolled over the mile and three-sixteenths in 1 56 4-s—just two-fifths of a sec ond over the Dixie record of 1 56 2-5 set by Riverland in 1943. It was one-fifth of a second faster than Alsab’s 1942 Preakness rec ord.

June 16— Harold Newhouser bagged his ninth vic tory and Roy Cullenbine and Rudy York added to their homa run totals a* the Tigers swept both ends of a double-header from the White Sox, 7 to 5, and 6 to 1, I today. The victories boosted the Tig ers’ league lead to two and one half games as the Yankees suc cumbed to the Athletics. A crowd of 5.996 saw the Tigers snap a Chicago winning streak, which had reached four. It w,.- the first appearance of the Tigers in Comiskey Park this year. Other scheduled games here were rained out. HAL HOLDS ’EM With a six-hit performance, Newhouser pitched his team to an easy triumph in the second as his mates punched out 11 hits, 10 of which came off Johnny Hum phries, who hurled eight innings before being lifted for a pinch hitter. Newhouser’s wild pitch in the third inning cost him a shutout. Mike Tresh led off with a single, moved to second on an infield out and took third on the sour toss. Tresh scored as Oris Hockett was retired at first. The Cullenbine and York homers were their fifth and fourth, re spectively. York’s, driven far into the lower deck in left field, came in the fifth with two out and no |one on base. Roy's was tagged in • the seventh with Eddie Mayo on ! base and was parked in the lower deck in right. Time* Photo MAYO ALSO HITS Bestdes his homer, Cullenbine also posted two singles. Mayo also bagged three hits, two of them two baggers. With a single, Lopat in the sec ond inning, drove in two runs that gave the White Sox an early lead in the first game. Bunching three hits with two away, the Tigers seored two to tie the count in the fourth. Maier hated home the pair after Cramer and Outlaw’ had singled. But the Tigers’ joy was short-lived as the Sox struck back with two in the home half of the fourth. Cucci nello's homer accounted for one and Nagel scored the other after he had whacked out»a triple. However, the Tigers posted two in the fifth and once again the score was deadlocked. Cullenbine and York batted the tallies across. In the eighth the Sox put over what looked like a winning run. Curtright led off with a double to right and took third on Dick shot’s sacrifice. SQUEEZE PLAY FAILS Here Trout entered the picture. With Cuccinello at bat, tJhe Sox attempted a squeeze play, a dar ing maneuver nipped in the bud by a great play by Trout. He fielded the ball near the first base foul line and, while off balance, tossed to Richards at the plate, retiring Curtright. But Nagel dumped a Texas leaguer into short center field which scored Cuccinello from sec ond. which the veteran had stolen. With one out in the ninth. York and Cramer walked. Webb ran for York and when Outlaw came 1o bat he faced Ross, who had n placed Lopat on the mound. Outlaw grounded to Nagel at first and Webb and Cramer moved up a base. Maier was given an Intentional pass, after which Hostetler, bat ting for Richards, singled to left, Maier also scored when Tresh fumbled a throw from the outfield.
