By The Associated Press
A. new American invasion in the
Philippines and fresh advances for
Yank soldiers and Marines of the
10th Army on strategic Okinawa were
officially reported by Army and Navy
Pacific commanders late Wednesday.
Gen. Douglas MacArthur announc-

Central Philippines against little re-

W. Nimitz disclosed that Marines and
doughboys on Okinawa were meeting
only scattered opposition as they

The 10th Army was in control of a
large slice of the coastlines of two
eastern Okinawa bays-Kimmu and
Nakagusuku. The eastern coast from
Yaka, on the north, to Kuba, on the
south, was in Yank hands.
To the northeast of Okinawa Amer-
ican carrier planes struck heavily
against the Japanese airforce and
shipping in the Amami Islands, also
in the Ryukyus.
Radio Tokyo acknowledged that
the Yank 10th Army has cut Oki-
nawa in two by driving from the
west to the east coast. It made the
unconfirmed claim that 11 additional
American ships-a battleship, four
cruisers and six transports -- were
sunk off Okinawa.

Lecturer Says
America Gives
Filpinos H1o)pe
"There can be an understanding
between all peoples, because in my
country you and I worked out the
principles of friendship and peace,"
Mrs. Pilar Hidalgo Lim, of Marin-
duque, the Philippines, said last
night in an address sponsored by the
Philippine-Michigan Club as part
of. a program commemorating the re-
turn of American and Filipino forces
to thp islands.
Faith in America
In her speech, "The Orient Sees
America's Vision," Mrs. Lim stressed I
the faith that the Filipinos have in
America as the defender of their lib-
erty and has given them the means
for that liberty.
She expressed the gratitude and
faith that her country has in the
American armies now fightinghin the
Philippines by saying that she wan-
ted the United States to feel her
people as "a strength, a force, a sup-
port for peace".
Vision of Philippines
Whatever should be decided at the
international peace tables, Mrs. Lim,
said, "the vision must never be shat-
tered." That vision, she explained, is
the one which the Americans built
up when they brought education,
commerce, better methods of sani-
tation and agriculture, and demo-
cratic government to the Philippines.
Following Mrs. Lim's address a
program of music and dancing was
presented against a festive native
background by members of the Phil-
ippine-Michigan Club.
