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
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
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.

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
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
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
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
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.

into the lead.

the $30,000 added Dixie Handicap,
the race before the run for the
He Rolls was second and Gay

the mile and three-sixteenths in
1 56 4-s—just two-fifths of a sec

with Jimmie second by two
lengths over C. F. Martin s Bring
