Prussia (Continued from page 1) slans approached to within two and one-half miles of Lomza. A battle of major proportions loomed In this sector of northern Poland, where Moscow said "the enemy bus turned his bridgehead on the left bank of the river Nurew Into a strongly fortified area covering the approaches to East Prusslu." "The Germans are putting up stubborn resistance," the communique added. Unofficial reports Indicated the Russians were massing new strength along the East Prussian frontier unci In northern Poland. General Ivan D. Cherniakovsky's third white Russian army has been reportedly reinforced with more than 100 formations of infantry in the last forthy eight hours.

Crippling U. S. Air, Sea Attack Hits Philippines (Continued trom page 1 WASHINGTON. D. C. The smashing American sea-air assault against Japanese shipping and port installations in the Philippines ap- Dcared aimed today at checking possible enemy move to gut loot out of the East Indies before that area is pinched off by the next anticipated United States Invasion drive. Third Fleet in Action Admiral William F. Halsey, Jr., kent his promise to meet his fighting men further along the road to Tokyo when he sent his powerful new Third Fleet into action off Mindanao and destroyed or crippled at least 89 Jap cargo ships and 68 enemy planes. Naval analysts expressed the belief that recent heavy ship move ments in that Jap-held area were aimed at getting as much raw rubber, oil, tin and other vital materials out of the East Indies nnd back to Japan as soon as possible. Expert Philippine Invasion The Tokyo radio already has warned its listeners that they could expect an invasion in the Philippine area In the near future. The heavy concentration of powerful American Fleet units in the southwest Pacific indicated that the next invasion move was imminent if not already underway. Mindanao has been pounded for weeks by Gen. Douglas MacArthur's airmen, and the strike by Halsey's Third Fleet foreshadowed important developments in that new Pacific war zone. Palau in Limelight ' Also In the limelight was the Jap anese stronghold or raiau, wim-n guards the eastern approaches to the Philippines and which must be taken or completely neutralized before American ships with men Bnd materials can move safely Into Far Eastern waters.

US Seventh Army Tanks Smash To Seal Escape Cap Continued From Page 1) DoubB nnd Ognon Rivers despite heavy German opposition. The Nazis fought hack with artillery and tanks but failed to keep the Americans from taking the outskirts of Vesoul. The Nazi command launched desperation counter-attacks to keep withdrawal routes into tho Reich open. Iteiel Gernmn Counter Attack One strong German attack at Mer-sault was repulsed. Some 300 Germans were killed and 300 others taken prisoner In tho engagement. The fight proved costly to the Germans In equipment, with the Americans destroying 300 enemy vehicles and 12 guns. French troops crossed the Ouche River, west of DIJon, at several points. Other elements drove north-. ward between DIJon and Sombeinon.
