Romulo, Survivor Of Bataan,
To Talk On Philippine Struggle

Describing that heroic struggle with
an accuracy possible only to a mem-
ber of General MacArthur's staff and
a vividness possible only =to a trained
journalist, Lieut.-Col. Carlos P. Ro-
mulo will discuss "The Battle of Ba-
taan" in the opening Oratorical As-
sociation lecture at 8:15 p.m. Thurs-
day in Hill Auditorium.
As an officer in the Filipino army,
and aide-de-camp to MacArthur, Ro-
mulo is well prepared to tell of the
heroism of the last days before the
American surrender. In a battered
old plane fished from the bay he
made his dramatic fight to. Min-
danao, from there to Australia to
join MacArthur, and his experiences
are some of the most exciting to come
out of the War in the Pacific.
It is not his own experiences,.how-
ever, but those of the men who fought
and died in that tragic and glorious
battle that Romulo wishes to relate.
He will describe their courage and
heroism against insuperable odds-
the pitiful starvation rations of a
handful of rice a day, the complete
absence of. all modern medical sup-
plies, the ragged clothing and impure
water and the constant scanning of
the skies for the American planes
that never came.
He will tell how the courageousz
leader of the Filipino people, Presi-
dent° Manuel L. Quezon, lived in a
tunnel in Corregidor, and then when
weakened and ill, left forone of the
unoccupied provinces inthe Visayas,
and later for Australia and America.
Romulo, winner of the Pulitzer
Prize for the best foreign correspon-
dence of 1941, before the war was
owner of four newspapers and two
radio stations. His prize winning se-
ries of articles reporting his observa-
tions on a tour through China, Bur-
ma, Thailand, French Indo-China,
British Malaya and the Dutch East
Indies :on the eve of Pearl Harbor
were published in his own papers
and in 122 leading American news-
He is an effective:speaker not only
because of his mastery of English and
a personal magnetism which is in-

A BRITISH PORT, Sunday, Oct.{
18.-- (A)- A large convoy has ar-

after eluding a German submarine

The Air Ministry news, service said
escort work of United States Navy
planes, the British Navy, and the RAF
coastal command were so effective
that the pursuing U-boats were un-
able to close in for torpedo attacks.
Flying Fortresses, Catalinas, Lib-
erators and Hudsons which now are
playing an important part in Atlantic
convoy operations provided effective
air cover for the recently arrived pro-
cession of ships.
The day after U-boats sighted the
convoy Catalina flying boats operat-
ing from Iceland flew out ,over the
ships but the submarines withheld
their torpedoes.
The following day, when the convoy
was approaching its most dangerous
waters, coastal command Fortresses,
Liberators and Hudsons joined the
American planes.
Air reconnaissance showed that the
U-boat pack had grown. "
At dawn American Catalinas bomb-
ed two U-boats which tried to attack,
sending the submersibles into a crash
dive before they could let go with tor-
pedoes. Oil spread over the surface
after one of these attacks, indicating
a direct hit.
Early that afternoon a Liberator
spotted two more submarines which
tried to come up for a periscope look-
see at the convoy. They went back
beneath the surface as the planes ap-
Less than an hour later the same
Liberator bombed another submarine

tower as it submerged in haste. A

A Fortress got into the scrap, at-
tacked a submarine and sent another
into a crash dive. In the evening two
American Catalinas each attacked a

line rationing in the midwest was
