T 14 Wednesday, Jan. 12. 1913 MASON CITY GLOBE.-GAZETTE HALSEY; MUST OCCUPY TOKYO Urges U. S. Accept No Peace Until Then Washington, (If)--Admiral William, F. Halsey, Jr., reporting the Japanese Ileet is seriously crippled declared Monday "we will keep on pressing and hitting him continuously," until Tokyo is occupied. The 61 year old commander of naval forces in the South Pacific urged that the American people refuse to accept any peace until troops reach Tokyo. Halsey told a press conference that, "there is only one definite place that has got to be taken and that is Tokyo. Don't let anyone stop us until we get it either." He-said that the forces in the Pacific in continuing to pound the Japanese are relying upon keeping, the enemy guessing. "He'll get set in one place and we'll hit him in another," he said. Asked about the apparent reluctance o£ the Japanese fleet to light, he replied: "Ether they are ··saving 'their lorce until we approach the shore of the Japanese empire or think they can wear us down by attri- tion tactics and we'll get tired and make a negotiated peace suitable to them, which God knows I hope no one will permit." Halsey said American forces have "definite superiority in the air, on the sea, aiid on the land wherever we are." When he was asked v whether the Japanese fleet could now be considered to be badly crippled he replied: "I would say rather than badly, seriously." But, he continued, the enemy still can muster a fleet large euou«h to put up a serious battle. Concerning Japanese h i n t s about a major offensive in the Pacific in 1944, the admiral said: "There is no bigger liar in history than Japan. If you read the Nipponese propaganda you can read anything." , With respect to enemy air strength he observed that their planes are "about the same, in fact a little better," but that there is a very definite deterioration in Japanese pilots. The Jap soldiers' disposition to surrender, he said, is increasing. 484 Cadets Will Finish ASTP Study ; Iowa City -- Certificates indicating successful completion -of work in the army specialized training program will be awarded to 484 cadets at the University of Iowa in the special convocation o£ Jan. 29.
