fenders were driven back, the coMt-
munique said, leaving 135 dead on
the field.

Admiral William F. Halsey, Jr.,
whose amphibious forces seized a
500 yard beachhead at Empress Au-
gusta Bay on Monday truculently
challenged the Japanese to bring
their navy out of hiding and com-
mented that when they do "the
sooner we will march through To-
kyo." He implied that far bigger
blows were in the making.
MacArthur Is Hopeful
General MacArthur took a more
sanguinary view of the Bougainville
landing. In outlining briefly his plans
for meeting the Japanese counter-
attack which was gathering force
at Rabaul and being reinforced from
Truk Island, 700 miles northward in
the Carolines, the Allied commander
in chief indicated the battle for Bou-
gainville probably will be the blood-
iest since the battle for Guadalcanal.
MacArthur's statement was made
with the knowledge that the last and
greatest attack on Rabaul Tuesday
had given Japan .its worst setback
since the battle of Bismarck Sea last
Halsey Aids Marines
Halsey sent his torpedo bombers in
support of the Marines at Bougain-
ville. There were dogfights practi-
cally allc.day between Allied and Jap-
anese planes attempting to disrupt
the invasion.
Yanks Make Third Attack
At Buka, American naval air units
executed their third attack on the
Buka and Bonis plantation airdromes
Tuesday, 28 tons of bombs were drop-
ped on revetments, plane dispersal
areas and supply dumps. The entire
area was strafed and four Jap bomb-
ers were destroyed or damaged on
the ground.
Two medium cargo vessels off shore
were strafed and left burning. There
was no interception. A Jap recon-
naissance bomber was shot down af-
ter the attack.
Liberators, Dauntless divebombers
and Avenger torpedo bombers struck
the Buin area airdromes on southern
Bougainville on successive days, drop-
ping 143 tons of bombs on Kahili
and 46 tons on Kara. These fields
have been bombed repeatedly and the
latest raiders encountered no inter-

came the returns from the city's
most heavily populated wards to put
the mayor in the lead.
At almost the very end of the

from the 22nd ward. They gave Jef-

which enabled the Nazi regime to

ment to the Republic that there vere

"The short period of Bolsheild
rule in Munich enabled Hitler to get
his starrt." he said. Another fact
that permitted the Nazis to take ovei "

together with various other fact&rs,
