It was the most significant news in weeks from this North Pacific front and it evidently was a direct consequence of the U. S. counter- offensive which has moved U.

Six Jap sea- planes were shot down in the air, many fire and demolition bombs landed in the Japanese camp area, and all the raiders returned safely.
