Shitaya, Asakusa and Arawaka districts. Some of these apparently were also hit. "Substantial bomb tonnages were dropped upon the Musashlna airplane plant located in the northwest section of the city, and on other selected targets In the industrial area," said the War Department's communique, lilt Target Squarely The raid was curried out In daylight and the visual bombing enabled the American planes to put their demolition and incendiary hnmh'i squarely on the vital Japanese tar-Kets. The Japanese attempted to minimize the damage Inflicted 011 their important war industries by the raid, but conceded that the Super-forts attacked for two hours, damaging factories and other Important installations and causing some fires. All but Two Return All but two of the participating aircraft have returned to their Sai-pan bases and pilots reported they met only moderate anti-aircraft fire and slight fighter opposition. The lack of effective air interception over the capital caused surprise In military quarters since it has been known that the Japanese have been withdrawing planes from the perimeter of their defense in the Pacific to protect their heavy industries on the islands of Kyushu and Honshu. . fa 320 Tank Ships About 320 tank ships are being used in American coastal Zest in Salads For variety and zest in salads, combine shredded or chopped cabbage with shredded carrots, or grated onion.

In addition, navy planes got (wo more and sharp-shooting ground gunners knocked down seven for a total of 42. The Japs took to the air in increased strength due to the improved weather, but where intercepted long before they reached our positions and only a few got through. While the enemy convoy was being cut to pieces by MacArthur's airmen, fierce ground fighting continued on Leyte. Drive, South of Linton Carving out hard won gains in the Ormoc corridor, infantrymen of the gallant 32nd Division continued their drive south of newly-won Lj-mon. where several thousand Jap's were killed, and crossed the, Leyte river. They beat off k counter-attack hy the Jap 2ith Division with severe losses to the attackers as they drove south of Ormoc. On the eastern flank of their line, the Yanks were cutting up enemy strongpoints in the Hill 1525 area, while Japs remaining in the Minoro sector, south of Capoocan. split Into small groups who offered frenzied resistance to the advancing Doughboys.
