PORTS TWIN TRACK SPEEDSTERS Superfbrts Hit Twice at Tokyo WASHINGTON, Feb. 19 (^ -Japanese mainland was blaflted again today by America's B29s. Superfortresses of the 20th air- force daringly bombed industrial targets in a daylight raid on the homeland island of Honshu. There was no immediate indication as to whether Tokyo was among the objectives. The attack on Honshu was the second of the day on Japanese targets. Military and communications facilities "on the Malay peninsula were bombed by Superforts winging in from India base? of the 20th bomber command under Brig. Roger M. Ramey. Forts from bases at Saipan and Tinian in the Marianas under Maj. Gen. Curtis K. Lemay, 21et bomber command, carried out the raid on the mainland. (A Tokyo broadcast, reported by Reuters, said that 70 to 80 B-29 Superfortresses had attacked the' Japanese homeland in a followup lo sweeping raids by U. S. carrier-based planes.) 100 Signed for Community Drive One hundred "cowhands"., have signed up to help in the one-day drive for a Community Fund to finance Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and the Servicemen's Recreation Center, ''foremen" for the "roundup" reported at a luncheon meet- Ing today.

ARBOGAST WASHINGTON, Feb. 17--#-Congressional fiscal leaders bit their lips today as they conceded that the national debt limit will have to' be boosted to $300,000.000,000 very shortly. But they foresaw a chance to start whittling it down 'not later than two years after the war, provided, as one of them put it, "the people wake up." Confronted with legislation to add a n o t h e r $40,000,000,OOC stretch to the present debt limit of $200,000,000,000, the chairman and the ranking Republican mem- bei of the house appropriations committee joined in demanding sharp curtailment of all govern- icnt spending. The debt now stands at $234,00,000,000; a month before Pearl Harbor it was $55,000,000,000. Urges Probe of Jap Atrocities t By ERNEST B. VACCARO WASHINGTON, Feb. 19--UP-Senator Wilson (R-Iowa) drafted legislation today calling for a congressional investigation into Japanese atrocities against American war prisoners. The proposal would set up a three-member senate military subcommittee empowered to hold hearings on the west coast to get first-hand testimony from liberated Americans. Wilson said he understood approximately 5,000 Americans have )een freed of Japanese imprisonment in the Philippines. The committee would take testimony from former prisoners on their arrival in this country to get accounts of their experiences in Japanese prison camps and civil- fan internment camps as well. He said similar inquiries might be made later into German treatment of j Tprisoners, but that in view of yie liberation of so many prisoners from the Japanese by victorious American forces, "it is important that their testimony be taken at once." "WJilson's resolution would be' broad enough to cover the recently-related incident of 1,800 American prisnoers dying in the torpedoing of a prison ship. IN B-29 CRASH attic, horse and similar shows ow come under the government an on meetings of more than 50 crsona. ( The decision was not made in line to affect shows now in prog- ess, the ODT said.

The reports stemmed from a weekend announcement that the Buenos Aires government had sent a sharply worded note to Berlin protesting a German "threat to deny safe conduct to certain Argentine diplomats en route home from Germany. Until now a declaration of war has been a passport of admission into the United Nations family, but'whether it would prove so in the case of Argentina is open to question.
