Fooled Japs
Luzon Landing May
Be Turning Feint

—Once more Gen. Douglas Mac-
Arthur, master of strategic sur
prise, put one over on the jittery
Japs when, from a might\ armada,
thousands of his American troops
landed on Luzon in the same sec
tor of Lingayen Gulf where the
enemy landed three years pre
viously. This may be the begin
ning of the decisive battle of the
Jar Eastern war.
Two days after this landing—
according to latest reports from
Admiral Nimitz •- the carrier
force of Admiral Halsey's mighty
■Hurd Fleet intercepted and made
surprise attacks on four Jap con
voys ofT the Indo-Cmma coast, ap
proximately 1,000 miles west of
the Philippines.
In this first deep sweep in the
south China Sea—presumably to
f>revent the Japanese from send
ng reinforcements to Luzon— our
planes sunk 25 enemy ships, in
cluding 12 fully loaded troop
transports, the light cruiser Ka-
Jori and seven escorting destroy
ers. while 13 other vessels were
heavily damaged.
In addition. 39 enemy planes and
20 flying boats and seaplanes were
Apparently no capital ship- ac
companied the convoys. This prob
ably was due to severe losses
sustained in the second battle of
the Philippines -sea during which
—as revealed by Adm. Nimitz
on Friday—the 43.000-lon battle
ship Musasni was sCHTfPon Oct. 24
and her sister ship, the Yantaio,
damaged. These ships are com
parable to our lowa class.
MacArthur on Friday reported
that destroyers sunk or set on
fire 45 small freighters attempt
ing to land supplies to enemy
forces at San Fabian, 10 miles
north of the invasion area
Though the Nips knew the Luzon
Invasion was coming—having been
tipped off by more than a week of
aerial pounding of their supply
and reinforcement lines through
Formosa and the Ryukyu islands
—they were not prepared for the
unexpected landing behind their
However, the landing ended a
four-day “war of nerves.” during
which Tokyo radiocasters, trying
frantically to guess where the in
vasion would be made, significantly
concluded that the American plans
•'seem quite complicated” an
other way of saying they were
confused by MacArthur’s series of
feints to the southward.
MacArthur'* bold amphibious
leap northward marked the begin
ning of the third round of the epic
battle for the Philippines—a battle
which will determine whether the
enemy is to be cut off from his
stolen empire in the southwest
, Pacific
In all probability Yt will be one
of the biggest and hardest battles i
in that theater, for unquestionably
the Japanese will exert their most
violent effort and risk much to
maintain hold on the Philippines. 1
In the realization that whoever
controls that group of islands
controls the South China Sea ;
through which run the enemy’s
vital lines of communication to
Burma. Thailand. Indo-China,
Singapore and the Dutch Indies.
Thus, should Japan lose Ihr
Philippines, not only would the
hold on her fabulously rich em
pire in the southwest Pacific
become increasingly tenuous, hut
ber who!? cast Asia co
prosperity sphere” would b< omr
endangerri and her dieam of
vorld domination shattered
Gen. MacArthur has predicted
that the baitie for the Philippine l

and key point in the defenses of 1
Luzon—would be fougl t on Lu

500 Die as Typhoon

U. S. Destroyers Hit
While Trying to Refuel
FLEET. Dec. 29 (Delayed) (UP),
—A swirling tropical typhoon
caught a group of Third Fleet ves
sels attempting to refuel from
tankers at sea after extensive
operations, swept 500 men to their
death, sank three destroyer* and
damaged three craft.
(Loss of the destroyers was
announced by the navy depart
ment in Washington Wednes
day. )
Only 91 officers and men sur
vived the sinking of the destroy
ers. the U. S. S. Hull and the U. S.S.
Monaghan, 1,500-ton vessels of the
Farragut class, and the U. S. S.
Spence, a 2.100-ton ship of the
Fletcher class.
Three officers and 24 men of the
Hull, whose bodies or identifica
tion tags were recovered, were
listed as dead. The remainder of
■ the complement of more than 600
aboard the three vessels, except
for 23 survivors from the Spence,
62 from the Hull and six from the
j Monaghan, were listed officially
las missing.
■ Eleven men were iwept over
board frtn < I dpi and two
men perished in the intense heat
of a destroyer’s engine room when
the mountainous waves knocked
out the ventilating system.
For two days the typhoon had
buffeted the ships, after an erratic,
unpredictable course which the
formation was unable to evade.
The destroyers lost steering con
trol while attempting to get clear
of the storm area. First the Hull,
then the Monaghan and the Spence
