Mac Arthur s Invasion Army Drives on Leyte Capital Continued From Page One commissioner of the los, resident Philippines. Lack of Japanese opposition was surprising since it seemed incredible the Japanese could have been unaware of the American mtentions with the huge armada which stretched beyond the horizon coursing fon days toward the landing points. Single Plane Sighted One single Japanese plane made a brief appearance over the landing scene and was shot down before it could do any damage. One submarine was detected before the armada reached the island, but was | not heard again after destroyers at! tacked it with depth charges. I ONE Says Prussia Fight Near Climax Continued From Page One borders of the province where the Junkers generals maintain vast nutates. Berlin insisted that another group was striking toward Danzig on the Baltic from the Narew river above Warsaw In a supreme bid to cut off the entire province of 14,000 square miles. The Rominter ITeide is a preserve of SI square miles near the Roniinte river, northeast of the Prussian town of Ooldap. The Germans acknowledged yesterday that the lied Army had advanced several miles into East Prussia In the direc lion of its great capital city o Konigsherp. FABRIC The unique blending of colors in Stroock mcnswear fabrics; coupled with the unusual feel and finish of the cloths; display an artistry and craftsmanship seldom duplicated in the woolen textile field. It is with pardonable pride that we present these soft, supple shetland-like fabrics... woven of the finest of virgin wools... and tailored with the excep- tional skilhmd care that such fine woolens deserve. THE SUIT HARRY COFFEE FJtffSNO AND *AKCftSffflD The voyage up to the Philippines was almost as incidentless as a peacetim-.' pleasure cruise. Iteacliheads Seized Covered by the greatest naval and air bombardment of. the Pacific war, jungle veterans of the American Sixlh Army under German- born Lieutcnant-Gcneral Walter Krucger, swarmed ashore from hundreds of assault craft and quickly seized beachheads against light opposition and fanned out inland with tanks and mobile guns. Three and perhaps four expanding beachheads were secured, front reports said. One column, advancing from San Ricardo, was Hearing Tacloban, capital and principal city of Leyte. with a population of more than ;i(i,li(KJ, only :i miles to the north. Karly unconfirmed reports had said that Tacloban was captured, but on the basis of later information, these appeared premature. The fate of Tacloban's big airfield, as well as other airfields just inland trom the j east coast, was not known. Opposition Develops Japanese opposition was reported | f,'•„',„ developing in the Tacloban area and around Poanan, southernmost bridgehead, at midafternoon as the defenders, stunned and scattered by the devastating pre-invasion bombardment, began to rally their forces. Enemy forces entrenched in the hills behind the coast were harassing the invasion troops with mortar fire. Bloody fighting was believed in prospect when the doughboys reach the main defenses inland. (A Dome! transmission recorded by the Federal Communications Commission said Japanese forces "are at present engaged in strong counterattacks against the enemy invaders" at Tacloban and in the Cabulian area at the southern end of Leyte.) Supplies Arrive "Our ground troops are rapidly extending their positions, and supplies and heavy equipment already ar.o flowing ashore in great volume," MacArthur said in a jubilant special communique announcing his amphibious stab deep Into the eastern perimeter of the central Philippines. The sun-bronzed MacArthur watched the pulverizing pre-invasion bombardment by two American fleets, an Australian naval squadron, and two air forces, from the bridge of the American Cruiser Nashville in Ihe Leyte gulf. Thousands of tons of steel and explosives were poured into Leyte's defenses by naval guns ranging tip to IB inchers and hundreds of planes. No Ship Lost Not a single American ship was known to have been lost so far. A single Japanese plane attempted a pre-dawn attack, only to crash in flames after dropping a bomb harmlessly in the water, but no concerted submarine, motor torpedo boat or aerial counterattack was reported. United Press War Correspondent Ralph Teatsworth reported from Leyte later that MacArthur had set up headquarters at the island. MacArthur's command, he said, had designated today as "A" Day to differentiate it from "D-Day" applied to other invasions. Among the first ashore after the beachheads had been secured were President Sergio Osmena of the Philippines exile government, and his secretary of information, Colonel Carlos P. Romulo. Manuel Quezon, president at the time, of the Japanese conquest of the Philippines, died in Uie t'nited States last summer, broken by the tragic ordeal of his country. MacArth'ur estimated the Japanese forces in the Philippines at »25,00i), including the Fourteenth Army group under the command of Field Marshal Count Juichi Terauchi. By striking at Leyte, the Allies "at one stroke slipped into the Japanese forces in the Philippines," he said. Anticipating landings on Mindanao, the Japanese were "caught unawares in Leyte and beachheads in the Tacloban area were secured " with small casualties,"' American combat teams paved the way for the successful penetration of Leyte gulf by landing three da*'s ago on the northern tip of Dinagal Island and the southern portion of llomonhom island and overwhelming enemy defense position guarding the entrance to the huge bay. liven then huge convoys of ships were converging on the Philippinus from forward bases scattered all over the central and south went Pacific. They rendezvoused last night off the central Philippines and at dawn began moving through the entrance to the Leyte gulf. The warships, comprising lh> greatest ocean-going amphibious armada in history, included the Seventh American fleet under Vice- Admiral Thomas C. Kinkaid, the Australian squadron and elements of Admiral William F. llakscy's Third American fleet. Overhead wheeled hundreds of carrier-borne and land-based bombers and fighters, some of I hem coming American-occupied Morotai in the Halmahera group tiOO miles south of Leyte and others from the southern Palau some 650 miles to the southeast, of Loyte, When Poyal Families get together To ialk of life or war or weal To keep their talk from stale ey keep supplied withREGAL PALE B«J.AMtEIL«l£V.lNO CO IN POULTRY "It's the Right Start!"
