LXIV, NO. 250  A TEXAS NEWSPAPER  ABILENE, TEXAS, THURSDAY MORNING, MARCH 1, 1945-FOURTEEN PAGES  Associated Press (AP)    United Press (UP)  PRICE FIVE CENTS  Nazi Tank Defense Grows; Fight Bitter  ‘Marines Capture Third Airfield  ’On Iwo, Control Half Island  U.S. PACIFIC FLEET HEADQUARTERS, Guam, Thursday, March 1.—(AP)—A big Marine push on little Iwo ^Vedncsday won them most of the island s vital central plateau with gains that one general said went far toward deciding the 10-day-old campaign. The hard-fighting Devildogs won complete control of a second airfield. They rolled past the f island's principal town of Motoyama. They reached a third incompleted airfield, gained more than 500  They  yards all along the line. They advanced up to 800 yards through the best developed a set of fortification encountered anywhere in the Pacific.  They counted 4.784 enemy dead.  Well over half of the island, which Lt. Gen. Holland M.  ^ Smith expects to fall shortly,  ® is in Marine hands.  M.'i! Gen. Graves B. Erskine of the Thud division said the battle for the plateau is the decisive operation and once all of- it is in Marine hands the field of Iwo's north a end will be down lull.  ^ Wednesdays impressive gains snapped the back of Japanese resistance which had compelled the Marines to measure pains by feet and yards for five days.  The push in the center pierced  *    the mam enemy line of resistance.  From this point on, the enemy strength and will to resist can be expected to grow weaker.  The death count for the enemy obviosuly is far from complete.  Front line correspondents said the % advancing Americans found large members of enemy dead in pillboxes, shell and bomb holes and in fortified gun emplacements. Many of these dead had been dragged into pillboxes and holes by the Japanese to conceal them.  4 The count of rncmy dead covered a period up to 6 p. m.  Monday. Inasmuch as a previous communique listed 3,568 Japanese dead up to noon the same day, the new report suggests the killing of more than 1,000 Japanese in a six hour period.  On the ue>: shore. Mai.
