BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPEK OP NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI Blythevillc Dally News Blytheville Courier BlythcvLlle Herald Mississippi Valley Leader BIATHUVILLE, ARKANSAS, THURSDAY, MAY M, 11MJ2 SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS I SEft LOSSES OFF AUSTIN SltlP" Big U. S. Bombers Sink Another Enemy Ship and Damage Two Others MELBOURNE, Australia, May 14. (NU>—Gen. Douglas MacAvlhur'.s Flying Fortresses and Catalina- Consoliclatcd bombers, opening a new phase of their offensive, have sunk one Japanese ship, damaged two and smashed 15 Japanese bombing planes in attacks over a 1750 mile front, it was announced today. Defensive fighters, newly arrived from the UniUci States, shot down two and damaged one of a formation of Japanese Navy-O fighters which vainly attempted to raid the Allied airdrome at Port Moresby, New Guinea. U. S. Successes Reported MacArthur announced in a general headquarters communique that his planes had sunk a 3000-ton enemy' invasion ship and obtained direct bomb hits on one of 3000 tons and another of 2000 tons in a punishing raid on Amboina, Japanese naval base 660 miles north of Darwin in the Netherlands East Indies. Bombs were showered on the general harbor area. Pilots saw 1 a wharf burst into flames and it was indicated that extensive damage was done to dock installations, with the possibility that other ships were damaged by near miss blasts or bomb fragments. llnbaul Again Bombed A second fleet of United States and Australian flurs attacked the great enemy invasion base at Ra- baul, in the Bismarck Islands northeast of Australia. They swept over the field to find that the unsuspecting Japanese, apparently believing unfavorable flying weather would keep the Allied fliers home, had left a group of at least 15 great bombing planes on the runway. Within a few seconds demolition and fragmentation bombs were persons falling among them. -, The crews saw three go up in bits, and it seemed unlikely that any of the rest remained serviceable. •;. Jap Fighters Hang Back While Japanese fighters hovered about nervously, apparently fearing .to attack, the Allied bombers plastered, :the Dipping ' in " Rabaul harbor with more bombs and flew home. MacArthur has now divided the invasion zones definitely into those northeast and northwest of Australia. The attack on Amboina opened a new phase of the Allied aerial counter-offensive against Japanese invasion preparations. Amboina or Ambon was one of the two principal Netherlands East Indies naval and air bases.'Japan took it early in the Indies campaign. It lies 660 miles north of Darwin, the Allied north coast Australian base, and 580 miles northeast of Koepang, the great Jap- amsc northwestern invasion base on Timor Island. • Amboina is in a position where it can be a valuable secondary base. Further, it could be used for a Japanese sea-borne attack on Port Moresby. It lies on the direct air line to the Philippines. WASHINGTON, May 14. (UP) —Secretory of W»r Henry L. Siimsoii declared today that there «as a "real danger" of air attack on tltc West Coast and that he was fil:ul that the armed forces there were on the alert against it. He made the stsilenient at si press conference in reply to a request ton comment on the numerous blackouts caused on the West Coast by alarms resulting from the approach of enemy planes. WASHINGTON, May 14. (W) —This Summer's army Held maneuvers will consist of sev- eial operations, each smaller thun the gigantic maneuvers held last year but entailing more concentrated training and field work, the War Department announced today. Each maneuver will be conducted by troops within an army corps instead of having several corps participating in a single vast exercise involving hundreds of thousands of men as was done in 1941, the Department explained.

(UP) — Pierre Laval's efforts to interfere with the United States moves to neutralise Martinique as a potential Axis throat .in the' Western Hemisphere, will be ignored, a responsible source snid today.

(UB)—A violent earthquake rocked Guayaquil and surrounding territory last night, killing at least GO persons smashing three large buildings • and disrupting electric and communications lines over the metropolitan area. The temblor lasted one minute in Guayaquil, a city of 06,000 in WASHINGTON, May 14. (UP)—French war vessels ut Martinique are being immobilized as one of the results of negotiations bcinff conducted there, it was learned today on hip-h authority. The conversations at Martinique arc hcin? continued and it was emphasized in official quarters that the United States is not dealing with the Vichy I'overnincnt on the Martinique issues. Immobilization of the French war vessels was arranged through cooperation between French and American naval officers and other officials there. The most important of the vessels is the aircraft carrier Beam which fled to Martinique following the collapse of of France. l.ASHIO MANOALAY, BURMA INDOCHINA FORMOSA REINFORCED JAPS L Chinese Cut Enemy Communication Lines But Japs Drive Forward HANOI PHILIPPINES China Sea Southwestern Ecuador.

No Note to Vichy An official source said that since no United States note had or.cn sent to Vichy, therefore, nothing from Vichy on the subject of Martinique was desired. Tin's was apropos to a United Press Vichy dispatch that Laval had sent the United States a note agreeing to promise that no French warship would be used against the United Nations, that three French warships in Martinique harbor would be neutralized, but refusing to hand French merchant-ships there over to the United States. The fact that President Roosevelt sent an admiral and a diplomat to Martinique last Saturday showed that no interference from Vichy was desired.

TOCCOA, Ga.. May 14. (UP) — The case of Jack Labaume em- ploye of the Letourneau construction company charged with the murder of a business associate, is expected to go to a jury late today. As Labaume's trial opened yesterday, he testified that he shot and killed Charles Peterson, construction foreman of the Letourneau firm, because he was jealous of the attentions Peterson was showing loward his wife. Speaking in a low, almost inaudible voice, Labaume told how on April 15 he killed Peterson wounded Mrs. Labaume and thei wounded himself in a suicide attempt. The shooting occurred a Peterson's home. Terrell To Entertain Kiwanians Next Week Livestock United States had demanded that French tankers and other merchant shipping at Martinique be turned over to this government. The question mark at the moment appeared to be the genial, tractable Robert, who apparently reported the first American proposals to Vichy. Whether Robert intends to be bound by Vichy's counter-proposals was not clear. The United States considers Robert a man of honor and if he pledged his word on an agreement it would be as acceptable as the assurances given previously by Marshal Henri Philippe Petain. FAST ST.

Standing at the bars of thc big "bull pen" on thc third floor of the county jail. Hargrov.? was making thc mast of the brief moments that visiting hours regulations permitted him to talk with his mother. Mrs. D. L. Hargrove. Neatly dressed, there was nothing about his appearance to lend credence to recurring reports that despondency inr$ anxiety have wreaked a heavy oil on his physical condition. Normally rather .slender, he seems to have lost lil.dc weight since being jailed. A noticeable nervous tension underlies his outward calm, but there is no indication that is of an extreme nature. TJcasant Rut Not "Talkative Known by his acquaintances f».s a mild, quict-spokon and courtoour sort- of fellow. Hargrove was pleasant but reticent throughout the course of the interview. "I can' afford to say anything now," wa. his only reply to all questions relating to the crime.

People who know him say that his love for his mother- has always been a he remembers nothing about the dominant factor in his life.

Nor, has he ever given tainly. when she is around, he has eyes for no one else. Despite his courtesy during questioning. it was plain that his answers wore given absent-mindedly and that he was anxious to get back to her side.
