American action in opening days of the battle for Australia will be centered in long-range, heavy bomber attacks on Jap 1 anese invasion fleets, it was pre dicted today by military experts. The report on the first such raid listed seven Japanese ships knocked out at no cost to the American force. Previously Japan's total ship losses officially claimed by American action were 138 vessels of all types and Admiral Thomas C. Hart said such attrition must be causing the enemy great concern for the future. Commanded by Maj. Richard H. Carmichael, eight heavy American bombers raided Japanese shipping in the harbor of Salamaua, New Guinea, on Tuesday. They dropped 18 tons of bombs on their target, leaving two Japanese ships sinking, four on fire and one beached on the shore. The American planes re turned to their base undamaged, the Army announced in a commu nique late yesterday. Admiral Hart Reports. In a leport on naval action in the first three months of the war. Admiral Hart yesterday credited Japanese air superiority with a major share in Nippon's gains. "The enemy has been able to em ploy land-based planes throughout all his advances," said Admiral Hart, the former Asiatic Fleet commander and former commander of Allied naval forces in the Western Hemi sphere. “The final salient feature of this campaign is that while the enemy has won it. captured much territory, etc., his own expenditures have been high. • • * The compilations made by the Navy Department are good and. as already given out, show | losses in ships of various types, which with the enemy's limited capacity for replacement, are bound ; to be a subject for his great future concern. "Unfortunately, the Allies also : have had losses; but with the ex ception of the Repulse and the Prince of Wales (British capital ships >, they are not serious from a comparative standpoint. Admits Campaign Lost. “The American Asiatic Fleet has been involved in the loss of a cam paign. But the war continues and most of that fleet, with what is now a veteran personnel, remains to as ! sist in carrying it on.” In the Atlantic war, Secretary Knox announced that the Navy would henceforth withhold identi fication of merchant ships sunk by German submarines off the Ameri 1 can coast. The announcement of names makes it too easy for the enemy to get valuable information as to the extent of damage done, the Secretary said. Hereafter the Navy will describe lost vessels as small, medium or large ships only. Publication of personal experience accounts of sur vivors will be permitted. Master Builders Propose Freezing Labor Contracts ! The Master Builders’ Association | today proposed to seven labor organ izations that "we mutually agree upon a policy of no change in ex isting labor contracts or wage rates for the duration of this emergency.’’ "May we count upon your co operation.” asked a letter from the association, signed by Victor R. Beauchamp president, "in this prac tical and sound economic policy?” The letter went to the Laborers’ District Council. Carpenters' District Council, Reinforced Concrete Work ers' Rodmen. International Union of Operating Engineers, International Association of Bridge. Structural and Ornamental Iron Worker', Cement Finishers and the Washing ton Building and Construction Trades Council. Several existing agreements be tween the employers in the con struction industry here and these labor organizations expire in the near future. --.

Bataan Propaganda Backfires Against Japs; Makes Defenders Fight On Even More Strongly By DEAN SCHEDLER, Associated Press War Correspondent. WITH THE U. S. A. F. F. E. ON BATAAN PENINSULA. March 9 (Delayed i.—With the war in the Pacific entering its fourth month, Japan's propaganda machine was working overtime in efforts to crack both Gen. Douglas MacArthur's troops and Filipino civilians into capitulation. The Japanese used every angle of appeal, tanging from Japan's swift advances to the south to the Japa nizing of Filipino textbooks in Ma nila preparatory to the re-opening of the schools In an effort to play on the emo tions of the Filipino-American troops, Japanese planes dropped leaflets telling them that they "had been sold out by the United States in favor of other Allies.” Surrender cards also were dropped carrying detailed information to facilitate their advancing to Japa nese lines unhindered. These and other methods used to try to get the defenders out of the dust-covered Bataan Peninsula have been completely ineffective with the soldiers other than to reinforce their determination to fight on even more strongly. Radio Plays American Tunes. The Manila radio all day long is playing American records, even favorite United States patriotic tunes, which reach Corregidor and Bataan radios in full strength. During the news broadcasts the announcer, with Japanese boast fulness. presents a rosy picture of the occupied areas in Manila and depicts an increasingly grave situa tion in the fighting in areas still held by Filipino-American troops. A recent program carried a direct appeal to Filipinos to lay down their arms, return to their homes and enjoy peace and prosperity with the ‘'aid'’ of Japanese special ists sent from Japan. The answer to this was seen with marked clear ness in the face of any Filipino soldier or civilian listening to this type of honeyed appeal. The Filipino - Americans' one source of news, which brings the realization that the United States has not forgotten them, is the San Community Services Planned Tonight At St. Mark's Dr. Shoemaker to End Lenten Talks at Church Of Epiphany Tomorrow A community lenten servicp at 2 o'clock tonight at St. Mark's and the Incarnation Church will mark the midweek high of lenten serv ices throughout the city.

All to Be Vaccinated In Honolulu District B\ tn« Associated Press. HONOLULU, March 12—The military Governor's office said yes i terda.v all persons in Honolulu and nearby districts, totaling about 200. 000, would be required to take im munization treatment against small pox and typhoid fever beginning April 1.

Quartermasters Seek Action, Volunteer to Join MacArthur Wide World News. CAMP LIVINGSTON, La.. March 12.—Fed up with being called "gold bricks,” a couple of soldiers in the Quartermaster Detachment decided to call for volunteers to join Gen. MacArthur on Bataan. They soon found out there are plenty of soldiers in all parts of the country anxious to make the at tempt, if the Army would approve. Typical of the hundreds of replies pouring in by mail and wire was this one from Staff Sergt. James T. Walker of Fort Ord, Calif.: "I can shoot the eyes out of a fly at 400 yards. Tanks and men come much easier.” The originators of the idea. Staff Sergt. Ernest Henson and Pvt. James Barrett, said it was to give all quartermasters a chance to prove they aren’t "goldbricks.” The movement isn’t officially spon sored by officers, but the authors . say that as soon as tney ve got nuu names, they’ll ask the War Depart ment for approval. , Here are some of the other replies: Pvt. V. S. Cissua, with an engineer outfit at Fort Ord: “That's a damn good idea of yours, but why limit the fun to the quar termasters? That isn’.t fair to the rest of the Army. I know of one good engineer that feels he ought to . have the same opportunity you have 1 so nobly hogged for the quarter masters." Pvt. Charles N. Miller, Chanutf ! Field, 111.: I “I have been in the Army six months. I am from Kentucky and I know all about shooting a rifle and other guns. ! Pvts. Arthur S. Takacs, James C. Cochran, Leroy Rogers and Jesse J. Crouch, Fort Knox, Kv.: j “All of us have been in over nine months and are tired of being ‘gold | bricks.' 5 available radio receivers, hanging on to every word. Buoyed by Broadcast. The recent March of Time broad cast dedicated to Gen. MacArthur and his men sent thrills through the listeners as it brought them the feeling that the United States, quite j the contrary to Tokio's claims, was not lettiAg them down. Tokio recently employed an ex asperating method to block out the programs by use of a "howler,” which often makes reception im possible. However, when the howler is on full stream the soldiers re-* taliate by saying "The news is so good that Tojo can't stand to let us hear it.” An equal appeal to both Filipinos and Americans is made in the Amer ican programs, which are given both in English and Tagalog. The Filipinos thus hear the words car ried thousands of miles through the air that the United States is following wholeheartedly their ef forts to hold each kilometer of their native land. During a recent night I overheard the reactions of a group of Ameri can soldiers after they had listened to a radio program from the United States. Cites Equipment Need. A bearded sergeant told the group: "Nuts—all those billions of dol lars are okay, but I favor using Winchell’s suggestion that we are not a bunch of Sergt. Yorks. We need stuff to rip into the Japs with." A lad with a Southern Thccent drawled: "Wait until some Flying Fortresses make a call on Tokio. Then you'll be thankful the United States Is tossing billions about." I sincerely believe that every American officer and soldier would like to be able to send a card of ap preciation to the United States for the efforts to help morale. They know that United States factories are pouring forth an endless chain of war materials which soon may find place in a good-sized convoy headed in this direction. These Americans, representing ev ery State in the Union, stand firm on the ground of Bataan and forti fied islands, knowing that the United States will not let them down. Dies Launches Probe Of Spanish Fascists' Latin American Moves House Votes, 331 to 46, To Extend Committee's Life for Nine Months B* tt * Associated Presi. The Dies Committee has been renewed for nine months and has started an investigation of Spanish Falangist 'Fascist* activities in South America. The House voted 331 to 46 yes terday to extend the committee's i life from March 31 to next January 3, and Chairman Dies announced he would ask for $300,000 for its expenses. The Falangist investigation had been considered by the committee since a member. Representative Thomas, Republican, of New Jer sey, made a personal study of the situation and submitted his infor mation to the committee. This information, committee sources disclosed, showed a well organized movement among influ ential families in Latin American countries and in Puerto Rico for restoration of Spanish supremacy. Actually Under Way. Whether committee investigator* actually have left for Puerto Rico or elsewhere was kept secret, but a committee source said "the investi gation actually is under way. not in an office in Washington, but at a place where first-hand leads can be obtained.” Mr. Dies himself said the $300,000 appropriation request—largest since the Committee on Un-American Activities was created in 1938—was necessary to continue investigations already undertaken or contem plated. During debate yesterday critics charged that the committee had been lax in investigating Fascists, while Representative Thomas called it "the most successful weapon against fifth columnists.’ "It has failed to investigate the real Fascists and Nazis in this coun try that are really doing harm,” said Representative Sabath, Demo crat, of Illinois. Enemies Listed. ftepresentative Mason, Republican, of Illinois, a committee member, fol lowed with a statement that the character of the committee’s ene mies and friends "tell the story in a nutshell.” Among the enemies Mr. Mason listed Fritz Kuhn, former German American Bund leader; the Com munist Party and its fronts, the National Lawyers' Guild, the Inter national Labor Defense and the In I ternational Workers' Order. Representative Marcantonio, American Labor, of New York in i terrupted Mr. Mason to assert that | "the Ku Klux Klan indorses the Dies Committee.” The New Yorker has been one of the most persistent critics of the committee. Mr. Dies himself charged that ‘‘more money has been spent in the last four weeks to discredit this com j mittee” than Congress would ap propriate for the committee's work when it is continued.

District Youth Held After ’Admitting' Murder in Texas Hitchhiker Also Talks Of Slaying in Florida; Sister Aids in Arrest A mild - mannered, bespectacled youth who tells a story of killing men in Texas and Florida was held without formal charge in a first precinct cell today after his sister arranged his surrender, police re ported. Detectives from Dallas. Tex., were on their way here to question the prisoner, Raymond Stanlev Mc Pherson. 22, who gave an address in the 2000 block of Thirty-seventh street N.W. They are investigating the death of Rudolph Canan, a motorist whose body was found by the roadside outside Dallas. Yester day three other persons, two of them young women, were arrested for this crime. Washington police were in formed. Talks of Miami Slaying. i Young McPherson admits this killing and talks "very vaguely” about another slaying in Miami, police here asserted. Miami au thorities reported they have no known unsolved murders—but de tectives are expected to come north to investigate. Three headquarters defectives placed the youth under arrest late Tuesday, it was revealed, and he has been undergoing questioning by relays of police officers since. His arrest was dramatic, accord ing to the police account. A phone call came to them from his 25-year-old sister. Miss Virginia McPherson of 4418 Forty-second street N.W. She said her brother had just returned to Washington and declared that he was carrying a gun. She feared he was "in trouble." She arranged for Detective Sergts. Thomas Nall.v, R. E. Talbot and J. J. Tolson to go to the lobby of a Wisconsin avenue theater. Goes In After Brother. Her Drotner, sne Knew, was inside. She went in and persuaded him to come out and give his gun to the detectives. It was following this that he blurted out—police say— the story of two killings. Young McPherson answered the description of a man whom police were seeking to question about the holdup of a filling station here on February 24, detectives said. It was after this date, they said, that McPherson went on a hitch hiking swing which carried him to Texas and back through Florida to Washington. The Miami shooting of which he tells did not take place on this trip, however, but about a .war ago, de tectives reported. It was about one week ago that he was picked up in Tulsa, Okla . by a motorist bound for Dallas, Mc Pherson was quoted as saying. He shot the driver as he stepped out of the car to stretch, somewhere near the Oklahoma-Texas line, according to the police version of his story. Dumped Victim From Car. He pulled the still living man back into the car and took the wheel, police went on. But “gurgling sounds” from the victim proved so unpleasant that he dumped him out about 4(1 miles from Dallas, the story continues, and he drove on alone. In Dallas he stopped at a comfort station to change clothes, leaving bloody trousers behind him, the police account continued, and later he abandoned his victim's auto and started hitch-hiking toward Miami A check of records showed that a Raymond McPherson has served 15 months in a reformatory at Hunt ingdon. Pa., police reported. Thi; followed a period of probation on a i forgery conviction. The probation was revoked after a suspended sen tence for auto theft was imposed. LOST._ BAG—In telephone booth.
