and carriers to destroyer escorts, and, according to one source, 2 500 smaller landing craft. The heaviest enemy attacks came after the battleships and other warships steamed into the Uneayen gulf Saturday and unleashed, in MacArthur's words a "blistering air and naval bombardment" that knocked out virtually every enemy shore battery from Lingayen to San Fernando and sent the enemy fleeing inland. Vice Adm. Jesse B. Oldendorf commander of part of the bombardment force, said the enemy opposition Saipan." was "worse than at "There we got some shore fire that was bad, but here we had 3 days of constant air attacks that was a lot worse," he said. At least 79 of more than · 100 attacking planes were shot down. J Japanese underseas and surface forces also attempted to stem the assault. A midget submarine fired 2 torpedoes at the armada, but was rammed and sunk by * destroyer. Two Japanese destroyers also were sunk before they could ;do any damage. An enemy coastal cargo ship and many small harbor a n d coastal craft similarly were blasted to the bottom. While the bombardment force was in action in Lingayen gulf, the main invasion' armada w a s moving north from the Mindanao *ea, south of Leyte. It feinted toward Mindoro, then streamed north, in a 100 mile long procession past Manila'and reached Lingayen gulf Monday night 1 At dawn Tuesday, battleships and. other warships began their final 2 hour bombardment of the landing beaches, climaxed by a rocket barrage from small craft that swept in close to shore. - An official spokesman said a force comparative to that landed at ' Leyte--100,000 men--was landed in the Lingayen gulf and one broadcast from the island estimated that 50 per cent more troops were ashore in the 1st 24 hours than at Leyte. " On Mindoro, just southwest of Luzon, American, forces continued the pursuit of Japanese troops in the coastal sectors and shot down 2 enemy planes attempting to attack American shipping. · Another 402 enemy dead were counted and 27 captured in the past 2 days on, Leyte.

These, needs, he declared, include 900,000 men for the armed services and 700,000 others for war production and war-supporting activities. "The .only complete and adequate legislation," he said, "would be national war service legislation 'of the most comprehensive nature." Such legislation, he stated, would shorten the war and minimize the'loss of lite. Pending enactment of an overall statute, Patterson said, the war department favored "work or fight" legislation for all men between the ages of 18 and 45. The committee is considering such bill. - .

To replace these men upon their induction, he said, some way must be found to shift older men into war jobs. The legislation which Patterson indorsed as a substitute for a general national service law if congress will not approve that would subject to immediate induction any man between the ages of 18 and 4o who leaves a job without board approval. Those physically fit wonld be used for regular military duty the o t h r J nto said would be "unattractive" assignments. Patterson said the army "would deplore the induction o£ large numbers of men for special service units," adding: "We don't need "lem." The primary purpose, of the bill he declared, is to "persuade and force, if you like," men not now supporting the war effort to immediately do so. He emphasized the necessity of denying normal veterans'- benefits to men in the special service units, asserting that they would not be subject to the usual physical risks and hazards of warfare.

Moscow' dispatches admitted the Russians were giving ground at some points before superior German numbers, hut the soviet morning communique said all attempts at a breakthrough had been blocked and th3t the enemy's casualties were piling up by the thousands. · · ' · ' . · ' · . : · Both sides were reported pouring reinforcements into the battle, as well as into a 2nd critical sector north of the Danube, where the Russians were closing in on Komarno in a desperate effort to outflank the nazi divisions striking for Budapest. The focal point of (he fighting remained on the Esztergom-Buda- JH-st highway northwest of the city. There the Germans were attacking incessantly with tanks and infantry against a thin wall of Russian guns and armor drawn up within 15 miles of the capital. At several points the Germans succeeded in breaching the red army line, but Moscow said all the penetrating forces were rounded up and destroyed. Simultaneously, another strong German armored force swung wide around the Russian left flank between the Bakony and Vertes mountains arid hooked in below Bicske, 15 miles west of Budapest. Repeated thrusts by I massed tank formations were' beaten off and the nazis switched to infiltration tactics with equally small success. The soviet communique said at least 1,500 Germans were killed in that sector Tuesday and that dozens of enemy tanks were destroyed, running the nazis' armored losses since the start of the a-day offensive to more than 50C tanks. Outnumbered on the direct approaches to Budapest, the Soviets' mam hope of beating back the German relief army appeared to res ii. wl j h ^"' e flai ~"~ i n* column north of the Danube. That force Wednesday advanced 4 miles or more on a 3-mile front to capture the river town of Iza, 3y, m iles east of Komarno. More than 1,000 Germans were captured and hundreds of others were killed in that sector, but the nazis were reported rushing reserves to hold Komarno, the funnel through' which their armor and infantry columns were moving down on Budapest from the Austrian border.
