',. : ",\\-~ ; Mission Was'Important The tremendous size pf the at- icking air* force—98 planes—indi- ite's that the American' ships con- titiilcd an Important target. The aps rarely have sent out such it rge formation against any single bjcctive. .It's possible lhal<'one of heir reconnaissance planes spotted ur ships, if they actually were loving out on an offensive mission, nd the attack force was sent over •illi aiders to annihilate it. From all indications, the Japs -ere badly mauled for their efforts, vith 37 out of the enemy's entire 8-plauc armada shot down, against loss of seven American planes. The Japs apparently know what hose ships were doing in Giiadal- :anal waters, so it will be giving no lid or comfort to the enemy to speculate on their presence there. Air Attacks Significant There have been rumors for vceks that, something bi« seemed to be brewing In the Pacific,, anywhere from the Aleutians to the Solomons. And the furious American lir attacks on Jap positions throughout the enemy's zone of conquest strengthened the belief that our side was going to do the hit- ling.
