Blows At Japs Wideh; Tokyo Hints Marshalls Invaded BY MORRIE LANDSBERG (Associated Press War Editor) Invasion winds blew around pivotal Japanese bases in the central Pacific today, fanned by thundering assaults of army and navy bombers and the guns of probably the greatest American task force ever* sent against the Nipponese. Tokyo hinted that American troops already have landed in the Marshalls athwart Japan's first line of defensive bases. One broadcast declared "it has been made clear to us that the enemy has taken a new offensive operation against our Marshall islands group." But strict radio silence dictated by security reasons blanketed the movements of the mighty naval forces, including battleships and aircraft carriers, which bombarded the Marshalls from the air and from the sea over the week-end. The Navy made no mention of I anjt invasion operation as such in � -\ Lost And Found Nazis Moving More Offices From Berlin RUSSIAN VAN ll BUT 4 MIES FROM ESTONIA Soviets Take Town Near Border and Are Closing Last Escape Gap on Shattered German Columns. Arc The Marshalls Next? LONDON, Feb. 1 (IP) - Maintaining the most sustained air offensive in history, American heavy bombers smashed at the French invasion coast yesterday in the 30th Allied assault on that area in a month while bomb-carrying Thunderbolts dropped their loads on a Nazi airfield in Holland. The raids, carried out after the morning. llAF's 14lh winter saturation attack on Berlin .reportedly had left no quarter of the capital un-scarred by Allied bombs, were made without loss. The OWI said the Swedish; newspaper Uppsala, Nya Tidning published _ a; ; Bfin .despatch reporting " '"'about 6,000 persons' killed in Berlin Saturday night, and that some 5,000 were reported killed during the last raid on Frankfurt where 50,000 people are assumed to be bombeu out." This estimate on casualties in the Saturday night raid on Berlin followed an estimate Sunday - by the Swedish newspaper Mya Daglit Allehanda that 6,000 persons died in the Friday night raid bringing to 74,000 the total killed in 13 raids up to Saturday. The British x*adio in a broadcast recorded by CBS said "some important German government offices have been transferred from Berlin to Breslau" which so far has escaped Allied raids. Allied bombs now have brought death and destruction into every quarter of Berlin, a Swedish cor-(Turn to Page 6 -No. 8.) announcements yesterday telling of a seaplane raid Sunday night on Wake island, 700 miles north of the heavily-fortified Marshalls, together with earlier Army Sev-| enth Airforce attacks on bases in the mid-Pacific island chain. The strike at Wake, delivered by two -squadrons-of-Goronado seaplanes, was described officially as strong. It was regarded at Pearl Harbor as undoubtedly timed to knock out the enemy airfield and prevent either Japanese air reinforcements for the Marshalls or counterblows against U. S. naval units. Land-based army bombers, in the 25th day of the aerial offensive to soften up the Marshalls, smashed at Kwajalein, Mili, Maloe-lap, Wotje and Jaluit atolls Saturday night  and  early  Sunday Juanita Wait, 18, kisses her 6 month old daughter, Marilyn, in Detroit, on seeing her for the first time since November when she left the baby with a friend so she could visit her husband, Wayne, 19, at an Army camp. The friend (?) deposited Marilyn in a stranger's automobile, and wrote Juanita about it weeks later. Marilyn wound up in care of the Children's Aid Society. ' (Continued on Page 10.)

JOINT COMMITTEE OF SENATE, HOUSE OKAYS NEW TAXES By FRANCIS J. KELLY WASHINGTON, Feb. 1 (ff) - The new $2,135,800,000 tax bill which is counted on to swell the government's total income to more than $43,500,000,000 a year went io legislative drafting experts for a final publishing today. As approved last night by a joint conference committee of Senate and House, the measure proposes to raise more than a billion dollars through sharply increased excise taxes, about half a billion extra from corporate excess profits taxes, apparently $664,000,000 from individual income taxpayers, and the balance from higher postal rates. Senator George (D-Ga), head of the Senate conferees, predicted the bill would be approved in both houses tomorrow. The conference adjusted a number of contentious issues, including amendments to the war contracts renegotiation act which in general tend to modify the impact of renegotiation upon contractors. House conferees waged a futile last-ditch action to tax pari-mutuel betting. The Senators, including Majority Leader Bark-ley of horse-breeding Kentucky, insisted taxation of racing be left to the states. Into the bill, however, went such new excise rates as these: (Turn to Page 6 - No 4.)

Whi}e Gen.   Leonid A.   Gov-orov's main forces battled their way through the streets of Kin-gisepp, last enemy bastion east of Estonia,   his   spearheads   seized control of nearly all roads on the high ground   approaches   to   27-mile-wide corridor   between the Gulf of Finland and Lake Peipus. The stategic junction of Kin-gisepp was expected to fall within the next 24 hours and outflanking columns may cross into Estonia and complete the plugging of the Narva corridor almost as quickly.
