The American invasion of Leyte and Samar islands is ahead of schedule, and the Japs fear Luzon will be next. The American invaders have won unquestioned control of Sntnar, which is just across a strait from Luzon, ana on Leyte, virtually all organized resistance has ended. Yanks Reach Hills The Americans on Lcyle have TODAY'S WAR ANALTSIS Jap Drydocks Prime Targets For Bombing By JAMES HARPER United 1'ress Staff Writer American airmen mny write a new chapter of destruction for the Japanese navy in a post-scrip to the bailie of the Philippine sea. Tlie enemy fleet suffered heavily In that fight, but it-may suffer even more heavily in its aftermath. Naval experts believe the time Is ripe to deliver a coup de grace to the Jap navy by completing the destruction of.cripples that managed to limp away. Tills could be done in coordinated attacks by both .land and earlier based planes on ships undergoing repairs in Japanese harbors. Not all the enemy islands are with- drivcn into the hills nearly half in ran ee of China-based B-29s. But way across the island, from east luckily, most of Japan's ship fa- to west, and arc within 1G miles of cllitie s are con- the Ormoc air and sea base on the centrated on the west coast.

A London broadcast this niornin" quoted a Tokyo radio dispatch telling of a new fleet engagement. But monitors now believe the Japanese report was B garbled version of the announcement of earlier naval action. Turning to' the war on the Asiatic mainland, the Japanese are putting on increasing pressure to lake Kweihn. Tile enemy has penetrated the outskirts of the city, and fighting has increased in intensity. A communique from Ceylon reports that Chinese and British forces have retaken almost 2000 square miles of territory in their northern Burma campaign to reopen the India-China supply road. Little River Gin Damaged By Fire Sunday Fire seriously damaged the Little River Gin early Sunday and burned 170 bales of cotton, although a Part of the gin proper and some cotton were saved. Discovered by the night watchman, the fire started in the baled cotton stacked near the gin. Origin is unknown. An estimate of the loss had not lieen completed today. Volunteer workers fought the fire until extinguished aiv. it is believed that the five-stand gin can be put into operation before the end of Hie season, provided parts are secured immediately. J. F. Harris is manager of the cooperative gin, located four miles south of Homeland. Seed House Damaged By Flames Saturday The cotton seed house of Hughes Gin on South Broadway was damaged slightly Saturday afternoon when fire broke out in a small more destructive'.blow,"at anchored warships than land-based bombers, es "operating from Flat-tops usually engage in dive bombing aV'^compared with the ' high-level hbrizoiital bombing of long-range land-based planes. Thus, they probably would be'more successful in luting the comparatively small target presented by a warship. Steel Shortage Acute Future attacks on Kyushu shipyards may destroy, war vessels, but past attacks on Kyushu steel plants already have Impeded their repair. Japan always has been somewhat t.hort on steel. And that situation has been aggravated by the war. When the Japs fenced off a vast empire, they cornered 98 per cent of the world's teak, 96 per cent of its natural rubber, 92 per cent of its quinine, 65 per cent of its tin nnd 82 per cent of its tea. But, as for steel, here's what the Foreign Economic Administration says: "The Japanese war machine is determined largely by Japan's capacity to make steel. Japan's conquests since Pearl Harbor have brought it virtually no new additional steel making capacity." True, those conquests have brought the Japs new sources of ron and other materials that go into steel. For instance the world's largest iron deposit lies in the Philippine Island of Mindanao. But Japan hasn't been able to enlarge its Industrial facilities sufficiently lo turn those materials into more steel. The enemy Is losing one- and-one-half-million tons of merchant shipping a year. And he's building only a million tons, largely because of a lack of steel. Steel Center Already it American B-29s have concentrated on a 20-mile coastal ribbon along the northern tip of Kyushu which is Japan's chief center of steel production. They have hammered Yawata, Japan's largest steel city which produces 20 per cent of Us total supply. Japan itself produces 1,700,000 annual tons of Iron ore. It gets nine million tons from Korea, China and Manchuria,. and 300,000 tons from the area south of Formosa. From this ore, the Japs turn out 10 million tons of pig iron. And this pig iron, together was scrap, is turned into 13,700,000 tons of steel. By contrast, America's steel production is about 88 million tons, Boston Appeal Possibly Final OneForF.D.R. President May Not Make Visit To Ohio As Was Expected By Hulled Press President Roosevelt apparently has make only one more major campaign speech before election. That's the one scheduled in Boston on Saturday. White House Secretary Stephen Early today told newsmen that right now the President is planning lo spend this week In Washington taking care of Important work. And he indicated that the President \ylll :-.ot carry his campaign into Ohio as some had expected. However Early said the definite decision will be made within 2-1 hours. It Is known that some of Mr, Roosevelt's advisers are so pleased with results of his weekend trip to Philadelphia and Chicago that they arc urging him to make the Ohio swing . Brief Stops Scheduled In New York. Democratic National Chairman Hannegan has an, nounced that Mr. Roosevelt vill' make brief stops at Bridgeport ant! Hartford, Conn., and Springfield Mass., on his way to Boston Saturday. The President will probably make brief train-side speeches at each stop. Governor Dewey will cross the President's patli on Wednesday on his way from Albany to Boston, where he Is making a speech Wednesday night. The Republican standard bearer plans train stops at Piltsfield, Springfield and Worcester. Mass. Arid lie is expected lo spend .Thursday campaigning "in Connecticut. . t . .' .

A total of seven battleships, seven heavy cruisers, three light cruisers pnd 17 destroyers are listed as probably sunk or, at least, dam- nged.
