LONDON, Thursday, March 159-The earth-shaking debut of the
world's biggest bombs, weighing 11 tons each, capped a merciless assault on
the Reich yesterday by more than 500 Allied planes which ripped and
blasted Germany with everything from .50 caliber machinegun slugs to the
new superbomb tall as two-story house.
A rail viaduct at Bielefeld, 38 miles east of Muenster, was the target
for the RAF's newest "town buster," the world's biggest package of explo-
sive, which was used for the first time by four-engined Lancasters specially
adapted for the purpose.

Education Plans
Agred Upon,
I nW a shing lto.n.
Plans for the formation of an
Anglo -American education' commis-
sion, first of its kind in history, were
agreed upon at the meeting this week
of the American Council on Educa-
tion Executive Committee held in
Washington, D. C.
Education school Dean J. B. Ed-
monson, who returned yesterday from
Washington, said that the commis-
sion was to be set up as soon as
funds are available.
A bill for the reorganization of
the Federal Office of Education was
discussed, Dean Edmonson said, and
proposals were endorsed to increase
its services to schools and colleges.
The bill calls for increases in the
number of areas to be served.
The problem of education for the
returning veteran and how he could
be protected against low-grade col-
leges was brought up, Dean Edmon-
with members of the American Col-
son stated.
