JAG Offf icei Commanded
Battleship X at Guadalcanal

"We never saw any enemy shipsin'
the Battle of Santa Cruz. All we saw
were Japanese planes," said Rear Ad-
miral Thomas L. Gatch, Judge Ad-
vocate General of the Navy and com-
mander of the famous "Battleship
X" recently revealed as the USS
South Dakota.
Admiral Gatch, who spoke, at the
Judge Advocate General's School yes-
terday, also commanded the ship in
the Battle of Guadalcanal in Novem-
ber, 1942, and as a result of his con-
duct in these actions was awarded
the Navy Cross, and the Gold Star in
lieu of a second Navy Cross.
Admiral Gatch indicated his opin-
ion, based upon his experiences in
these struggles, that a modern bat-
tleship can well take care of itself
against a goodly number of enemy
planes by throwing up such a screen
of steel that planescannot pene-
trate. In the first battle, the USS
South Dakota fired 50,000 rounds of
ammunition against enemy planes in
25 minutes. "This is the only way to
stop planes," he said. Thirty-two en-
emy planes and dive bombers were
shot down.
Resuming command of his ship for
the Battle of Guadalcanal despite
severe wounds suffered at Santa
Cruz, Admiral Gatch used the radar
device to follow the approach of the
unsuspecting enemy, and opened fire
at eight miles. "My eyes were not
able to see evidence of the Japs until
we fired and then their leadinig heavy
cruiser burst into flames." The ene-
my never knew what hit them and
were not in battle formation.
Although the Japs were not using
a radar device in those battles it is'
probable that they have now received
aid from the Nazis of a similar de-
vice which they may now be employ-

per cent of the crew of the; USS South
Dakota had not been to sea in March,
1942, when he took charge, but that
after intensive gunnery training, he]
was able to boast or the crew's
marksmanship and thereby obtain a
South Pacific assignment. Admiral
Gatch remarked to one member of
the crew, "If you've never crossed the
equator, you've something coming,"
and in thirty seconds all hands knew
that the destination was the South
In response to questions, Admiral
Gatch outlined briefly the court mar-
tial system of of the Navy.
Admiral Gatch is a graduate of
the United States Naval Acadmey,
and has served continuously since
graduation in 1912, with tours of du-
ty in the Judge Advocate General's
Office interspersing tours of sea du-
ty. He holds a law degree from

rangle. In addition to these men, 80
naval architects are stationed on
campus. All of these men are com-
missioned officers.
The men in the V-12 program are
classed as apprentice seamen. They
will wear their undress blues on cam-
pus this semester with their pea
coats and blue hats. The dress uni-
forms with the white braid and stars
on the collars can be worn only on

arines Arrive
From Combat
To Study Here
Seventy Men Leave
For Boot Training,
OCS, at Parris Island
Many of the marines who arrived
in Ann Arbor yesterday come from
actual combat duty in the Pacific.
Approximately 25 men arrived here
yesterday. These include regular en-
listed personnel, transfer students
from Ohio University, Colorado Uni-
versity and other colleges and fresh-
men who have just completed their
high school programs.
These men will fill the vacancies
left by 40 marines who left last week
for OCS at Paris Island and 30 ma-
rines who left yesterday for San Di-
ego having been transferred there
for boot training and active duty.
The marines will wear the forest
green uniform which is the official
enlisted man's dress uniform. They
will wear their khaki field jackets to
classes. The marine uniforms are
forest green while the army uniforms
are olive drab.
Their uniforms can be distin-
guished from the army uniforms by
the fact that they wear their ties out,
have no hib pockets and wear the
marine emblem on their overseas
cap and on their blouse. This emblem
consists of a globe and fouled anchor
with an eagle on top.
In order to be sent to school under
this program, marines must meet cer-
tain educational requirements, be be-
tween 18 and 25 years old and be re-

group, are training here preparatory
to active duty in naval architecture.
They are primarily graduate engi-
neers and architects.
The men came to Ann Arbor on
June 22, 1943 from navy yards, sea
duty and indoctrination centers. The
men are being trained as ship super-
intendents and will be sent from
here to shipyards were they will act
as liaison officers between the ship's

into the yard.
The men are carrying 26 hours of
classroom work and four hours of

engineering. They have to maintain
a "c" average in order to remain in
