MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE THURSDAY, JANUARY II, 1945 SWIMMERS TRY TOM NAVY Japs Ferry Explosives irijLingayen Gulf Abiard Vice Admiral Thomas C. KinkiU's Flagship, Lingayen Gulf, (jp)_Japan'£ air force in the Philippines has been dashed, its navy beaten, so Wednesday night the enemr called out his swimming team.- The waters of lingayen gulf are still crowded with the greatest Pacific; invasion convoy--fully 2,500,000 tons of U. S. combat and assault shipping--manned by more than 50,000 sailors. * Against this force, 12 little Japanese swimmers ferrying explosives paddled 'into tbe transport area. They' were found in the morning still floating around, some of them shoving boxes containing: TNT. They attempted to duck under them when detected. Two were picked np and when taken into a small boat tried to blow it np with hand grenades. Others were shot in the water as they re r fisted capture. Commenting on the Japanese trick, Vice Adm., Thomas C. Kinkaid, commander of the Luzon task force, said: "We are not im- i pressed." ) Japanese were up to some other ! small-time tricks in this big-time ( war. Three small boats were raid- » ing parties, carrying explosives, stole into the area at the Lingayen \ beach and attacked several ships. ! Damage was negligible and more costly to the raiders themselves than to their floating target. Security watches, however, on all ships have been ordered to be · on the lookout for floating con- tact mines, one-man torpedoes and midget submarines. The-natives' canoes have been forbidden to approach U. S. ships, regardless o£ how innocent they may appear. In fact the only Japanese opposition to American landing operations Wednesday night came from these bomb carrying Japanese. While the attack was co-ordinated, Vice Adm. Daniel B. Barbey, 7th amphibious force commander, described it as "more odd than effective." The Japanese approached American shipping in slow boats or swimming, with their beads hidden under boxes. They used handmade torpedoes, tiny bombs and even hand grenades Some of the torpedoes were made out of oil cans filled with explosives which the Japanese pushed ahead of them at the end of a long pole. Most of the Japanese were blown up with their bombs. Two Japanese swimmers .attempted to sink a destroyer by tying some grenades onto the fantail. Regarding this attempt Admiral Barbey said: "A swimming man just can't carry enough explosives to do much more than blow himself up." Heavy ground swells and rough surf have been more of a menace to unloading operations than what little the enemy has been able to do. However, 50,000 tons of guns, tanks, munitions, heavy engineering and equipment of all types were put ashore the first day. IOWA'S NEW GOVERNOR--Here's Gov. Robert D.

Carl, federal crop statistician, showed a drop to 455,993,000 bushels, 79 per cent of the 1944 crop. The Jan. 1, 1944 figure of 463,463,000 bushels was 81 per cent of the 1943 crop. "The drop in stocks this year, despite smaller feeding operations, can be accounted for partly by the fact that stocks from preceding crops were largely depleted during the extreme shortage of feed before tile new crop was harvested last fall," Carl said. LUMSDEN DIES ON U.S. SHIP British General Killed in Jap Attack London, (JP)-- The British war office announced Thursday that Lt. Gen. Sir Herbert Lumsden had been killed by -a Japanese air attack Jan. 6 while aboard an American warship in the Pacific. Lumsden, appointed by Prime Minister Churchill as his special representative to Gen. Douglas MacArthur's headquarters in November, 1943, presumably was killed during the invasion of Luzon island in. the Philippines whei Japanese planes heavily attacke the American convoy. Lumsden formerly was a corp Come Help Yourself to these January Bargains ommander in the British ·my in Africa. The announcement said: "The war office announces with leep regret the death in action of ~.t. Gen. Sir Herbert Lumsden, D. S. O., MC., who was killed by enemy air action Jan. 6 while on the bridge of one of the U. S. warships engaged in the Pacific. 'In a · message to the prime minister Geii. MacArthur, under whom Gen. Lumsden was serving, says: . " 'It is superfluous for me to speak of the complete courage which this officer so frequently displayed in my immediate presence during the operations in this theater during the last year. His general service and usefulness to the allied cause was beyond praise and his loss has caused deepest sorrow through all ranks. My own personal sorrow is inexpressible.'" Lumsden was 48 years old. He commanded the 12th Royal Lancers which won fame for rearguard fighting during the retreat to Dunkirk. Advertising Used to Aid War Effort On Half Of This Fine Clothing Stock!
