Fire Nagoya Again The same day, the biggest force of Saipan-based B-29's yet to fly to Japan started huge fires at Nagoya, Nippon's airplane center on southern Honshu. A dispatch from Associated Press War Correspondent Vern Haugland at Guam said the aerial task force was of sizeable strength, indicating that up to 100 planes participated. Tokyo said 90 B-29's mde the raid. This Superfort raid was the first to be engineered in the field from American territory. The force was directed by new B-29 headquarters at Guam, the island that was reconquered by the Yanks last July. Hint Invasion Prelude Adm. Chester W. Nimitz announced the Formosa, attack in a Pearl Harbor communique whose meager detail suggested a radio silence to protect just such a continuing operation as the last previous carrier-based pounding of Formosa in October, the prelude to Mac Arthur's return to the Philippines.

Kussians Yield Ground In the last two ,days the Russians had given ground and It was probable that more would have to be yielded, although the .Russians appeared to be getting the situation in hand. The German counter-assault was sprung from the area of Komarom, a Danube river town 45 miles northwest of Budapest. The German-Hungarian garrison in Budapest, where the Russians have overrun 1,062 city blocks, was reported making savage attacks in an effort to break out toward the relieving force. Nearly a third of the eastern section of the capital was in Soviet hands, an additional 200 blocks having been captured in JAP SHIPS DESTROYED OFF WESTERN LEYTE the last 24 hours. ^se Ground The exact n Danube time the Germans launched their counter-attack in the Komarom area has not been disclosed,, 'but from available reports it appears to have been Tuesday morning in the snowy dawn. A heavy German thrust was thrown at Russian artillery posit ions. A Red Star dispatch said the artillery line had been forced back by Ge cuum tanks southeast of the city but it did not state the extent of the withdrawal. The official aci'ount, said merely that the Russians had given up several populated points along the southern bank of the Danube. Nazi Air I'mver in Action The most recent df facial accounts of the advance on Komar- om had placed Russian elements 101/2 miles cast of the city.

I.KMAY WASHINGTON. Jan. 4 (fi -Storm signals were hoisted today over the newly-launched 79th congress. A huge question mark arose over tho ability of the administration to command a constant majority in the house, as a Republican- Democratic coalition overrode Democratic leaders on tho opening day of the congress to put tin- old, so-called Dies committee on permanent basis. Democratic leader McCormack, of Massachusetts, arguing against a disregard for precedent, told the house that never before in history "has congress created u permanent investigatory committee." The new committee to inquire ntti unamcrican activities will be the only permanent body of congress with continuing power of subpoena. ]n a thumping, noisy opening for the new congress, tho house Republican - Democratic combine sailed to a 207-to-186 victory » surprising development in view of the large Democratic gains of house scats in the November election. Administration leaders hoped for gained a majority of '24'J .scuts to 190 Republicans.

Congressional Medals To 134 in World War H First Army Hits AsvonRunstedf Turns on Palton By JAMES M.

Some 15 miles or so to the south, Lt. George S.

German advances of up to four miles In Lorraine reached almost to ReipcrUnvlller, six. miles bolow Bitche and just 13 miles north of Saverne on the Allied lifeline to the Rhine city of Strasbourg. A small force of Americana was withdrawn from ft corner of Bitche tUelf, a bastion of the old Muginot line.
