The Japanese admission of losses j was conservative, in the cstima- t| n of American navy men who participated in the battle. (This was the first detailed report on the bailie, and Ihc first indications of enemy losses.

In a dazzling display of diversified power, General MacArthur's big bomber force sank three destroyers and eight large merchantmen or transports at Rabaul Tuesday and ripped open the hull of a heavy cruiser while planes of Adm.
