Bui, meanwhile, its leaders cast about desperately for ways !o lurii the tide of defeat. Takn- iiashi s mission·,-- a one-way suicidal flight -- grew out of this despeiallon.' ·'·' . i ; .' ' v SECH ET MISSION He was a wireless operator at an BIT base north of Tokyo when he was ordered to report to another base for a secret misson. . . , · "I didn't know what it .\vns all about, and my-.superiors said nothing," Takahashi recalls. But he .gradually pieced together details: Three long-range KI77s, twin- engine planes developed for civilian use; were to be refitted. They would-carry bombs, extra fuel and a crew of two: a pilot and a wireless operator-navigator. Five years earlier, a KI77 and a crew of eight flew 10,200 miles non-stop on a circular route over Manchuria. This exceeded the 6.750 miles to New York, but allowance was being made for the heavy bomb load. To guarantee success for the mission, Takahashi says, the planes were to cthnh to 29.50C feet : where the eastbound jet stream would give them extra speed and distance. TO CRASH Once .over New York, the planes were to drop their bombs arid then crash. Takahashi, now a bank executive in Tokyo, says the military planners selected New York 'rather than' Washington or another city because it was America's largest city and also because the jet stream coulc take planes there more easily. "But," says Takahashi," I'm happy the war ended before the mission could begin. I didn't even : i have lime to be transferred to another 'base,; and I never got to meet any of 1 , the others who were selected foi the mission." The Japanese Defense Agency says the war destroyed many important military documents, and it has nothing in its archives on the mission. But 11 says it has heard it mentionec and some Japanese military leaders may well have planned it secretly. Glamor Girl r Joi Lansing, Dies Of Cancer H O L L Y W O O D , (AP) -'Glamour is a great why lo gel aunched,' 1 snid curvaceous Jol Lansing, whose image as an no tress was likened to that ot Marilyn Monroe and Jnync Mansfield. ·The buxom, blonde glamour girl died Monday night at a Santa Monica hospital after a two-year bout with cnncer, a hospital spokesman said Tuesday. She was 43. Though never a big star, her 39-23-35 body and glamorous appearance launched her into several sizeable supporting roles in films and television. But in later years Miss Lansing said she regretted the tact that she had capitalized on her measurements. "My being blonde and curvy, you might say, was a mixed blessing," she said. " . . . I was always known as a glamour girl and categorized only as that. It was very limiting." Born in Salt Lake City, Utah. Miss Lansing moved with her family to Los Angeles at six. She was discovered by a Hollywood producer at 14. After attending Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studio's talent school and taking drama instruction at UCLA, she won the part, of Shirley Swansbn, a dumb blonde model, on the "Love That Bob" television series .starring Bob Cummings. Among her films were "The Brave One," "Hole in the Head," "Who was that Lady?" "Mariage on the Rocks" and "Klondike." Survivors include her husband and business manager, Stan Todd, Services were pending.
