In through saturday april in wit Host families would pay of Public wrote income tax Bill by pall Freye a laughable false propaganda. Center of a joke. Just to turn eyes to Public. that was the japanese radio broadcast Friday a broadcast strangely denying the unreported bombing of Tokyo by three Amer icon planes. Saturdays japanese radio Broad j casts told a different Story however. Planes bearing United states j insignia flew Over and bombed j Tokyo Yokohama Kobe and i Nagoya. Fires were started at the 1 latter two cities As the planes went Over a 275-mile area of Japan a coast. Some villages were machine gunned. Damage was negligible. Air raid alerts sounded All up and Down the islands. All that was the saturday japanese radio report. There was no confirmation of the attacks from the u. S. Army Navy or Gen. Mac Arthurs Headquarters. Congressional leaders military experts and commentators in the United states hailed the action if it was True As the Start of the heralded offensive against Japan. Start of the offensive drive was marked earlier in the week however and followed the same radio broadcast pattern As did the latter one. Homes radio said monday that three american air planes had attempted to bomb the suburbs of Manila but had been driven off. It was unconfirmed. On wednesday the confirmation came. Long Range bombers of u. S. Army air forces in Australia flew the Lang trip to the Philippines smacked at Nichols Field in the suburbs of Manila at Batangas port in Southern Luzon Island at Cebu and at Davao on Mindanao in the Southern Philippines. That was the first Good news of the week for United nations readers. That was the Start of the offensive. Big bombing planes including flying fortresses made the flight into japanese held territory of the Philippines led by Brig. Gen. Ralph Boyce. It was a two Day picnic in which 110 tons of bombs were dropped according to Royce. Some planes landed and took off some evacuees. One plane dipped its wings Over besieged Corregidor and was cheered by the americans and filipinos who Are still holding out on that Island.

Princeton n. J., april 18.�? if the 60,000,000 eligible voters of the nation wrote the 1942 Federal income tax Bill it would contain Many surprising features. Typical families earning $2,000 a year who Are now exempt even under the Treasury a new drastic proposals would be required to pay $54 a year if the Public wrote the tax Law. Even families earning As Little As $1,000 we Ould be required to pay a Small tax. While thus broadening the base in order to require a majority of american families to pay the Public w Ould at the same time recognize the principle that the higher incomes should Bear a proportionately higher tax Load. But far from a soaking the Rich a the people would actually place less of a Burden in the upper income groups than the Treasury has proposed. Survey 48 states. The Public a ideas of what the new income tax Bill should be were gathered by the american Institute of Public opinion in a Cross Section Survey of All classes and groups in All the 48 states. Each person interviewed was asked this question a in order to help pay for the War the government will be forced to increase income taxes. If you were the one to decide How much income tax if any we Ould you ask a typical family of four with an income of $1,000 a year to pay a the question Wras repeated for various sums up to $100,000. The results representing an average mean of All tax sums named Are Given below and Are compared with the tax proposals made by Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau on March 3 of this year. We.

It is interesting to note that on incomes of $3,000 and below the Public would tax at a considerably higher rate than the Treasury prolong Over the far East they also poses. On the other hand persons were causing some perspiration to wit ii incomes of $5,000 and up flow from the brow s of Adolf hit would substantially less under Ler and Hermann Goering.

Note Shell bursts at left Center and water spout from bomb Between the two ships. Laval officially answers to Petain under changed French government Washington april 18.�? a military men and congressional leaders today hailed the reported bombing of Tokyo and other important japanese Industrial centers As heralding the Start of a real american offensive. There was no official information from the Navy or War departments to confirm the Tokyo radio reports of the Aerial raids. Observers assuming the Tokyo broadcasts to be True believed the raids probably were carried out by Carrier based planes. In that event there might be no official reports from the u. S. Navy until the carriers have returned to their bases. But in All quarters Here there was elation Over the news from Tokyo and a feeling that it was a big step in the grim business of getting ahead with the winning of the War. Andrew j. May dem. By chairman of the House military affairs committee said he believed the raid had taken place bind that it was a the beginning of a general fulfils prediction. He said it a is hard for me to believe anything Japan says a but he recalled that to Days ago he predicted Tokyo would be bombed shortly. He saw a a fulfilment of that prediction in the japanese radio reports. Chairman Carl Vinson dem. Of the House naval affairs committee said a it appears to me that the Allied nations Are begging to take the chairman j. Buell Snyder dem. Of the House War department appropriations subcommittee declared a the raids will prove int in boosting morale not Only at Home but especially in China and a the great masses in Russia will have foundation to believe that they wont have to fear an attack to their rear while they Are battling the germans a he said a i predicted in january that Tokyo would be bombed collects fund for raid Pilot Auburn n. Y., april 18. A a Joseph Doran Veteran of world War i said today he had collected More than $100 for the Pilot of the first american plane to bomb Tokyo and that he expected the fund would reach $200. Doran informed of the reports of the Tokyo bombing said he planned to turn the Money Over to military authorities. A the military authorities Are Best fitted to know the identity of the Pilot a Doran said. Vichy april 18.�? May i and i now predict that it will be bombed from Many quarters by july House democratic Leader John w. Mccormack of Massachusetts said that a from now on Japan a. _ a a a can expect to be on the receiving marshal would try to shift the government either that the nazis were attempt i i fighter planes giving the German air Force no respite irom defense and causing no end of damage along the invasion coasts. The attacks pieced with the news of chief of staff Marshall in conference in London obviously were giving the Reich Good cause for alarm at invasion possibilities. N the Middle of All this bombing France was being revised and the revision was being done by pro nazi Pierre Laval. Wounded a year ago in an attempted assassination Laval came Back As a chief of the government a formed a new Cabinet and then watched As the u. S. Fumed at its diplomatic defeat. Friday came news that ambassador William Leahy had been recalled a for consultations at Washington. Allied nations thought that Germany would almost certainly take Over the Good sized French Fleet and some vital colonies. The news was not made cheerful by the announcement saturday that the worlds largest submarine the Surcouf. In free French hands had been considered lost. Tion. Sentiment Long present. It is doubtful however that even the experts Are aware of the extent to which the people them serves Are prepared to accept a broader tax base. The Public a acceptance of such a , As a matter of fact not a new development. Institute surveys for the past two and a half years have found a willingness on the part of the majority of hairier Henri Philippe Petain today in Back to Paris where he would be aug rated a changed form of gov in closer Contact with German of Ern ment for France with Pierre curation authorities Laval As chief responsible to Petain and with Admiral Francois Darlan As Petain a heir apparent in Sun preme command of All armed forces. I the German radio said that new Vichy regime was a Petain Laval Darlan government. Dispatches from Vichy did not completely clarify whether pro Axis Laval would be the chief Power in the new government As had been expected but the official version was that Petain As chief of state had leans to pay income taxes. Even delegated specific Powers to Laval after the lowering of exemptions last year it is estimated that less than half of All american families had to pay a Federal income tax on March 15. Nobody of course wants to pay taxes but if taxes Are to be levied it is apparent that the Public a idea of what should be paid differs considerably from that of the Treasury or of Congress. But left the French Fleet armed forces and air Force under Darlan who is responsible directly to Petain the decision of Petain that the a present form of government no longer corresponded to the needs of France was officially announced by information minister Paul Marion. It specified that Petain a decided ing to maintain the marshal As a a a front for p of Axis Laval or that Hitler had failed in his efforts to Laval presented his full Cabinet put a completely Axis controlled list to Petain and took Power regime in Power immediately at a conference late on the surface Petain retains this afternoon succeeding the re control of the French Fleet through signed Cabinet of Admiral Francois Darlan and his prestige with the Darlan who is now commander of French people presumably will be land and sea forces under Petain. Used in support of the Laval cab the Laval statement that he inet if it is accepted that the new would be responsible to Petain for Cabinet chief is responsible to his policies and acts indicated Petain admiration is Mutual among australian and american fliers by Don Caswell United press staff correspondent advanced air base aus a Thalia april 18.�?the australian and american filers at this base get along Fine for the aussies think the Yankees fight like veterans and the americans say the a it was enly a matter of time when our forces would take the offensive a he said. A your men of the Navy and the air Force have done a wonderful Job to Date under the trying difficulties that confronted them. That situation is changing. We can rely on them when they meet the fire greatest fear. It was pointed out that Early in March an american task Force including a Carrier raided the japanese owned Marcus Island Only 900 Miles from Tokyo. It appeared Likely that now a stronger naval Force probably has penetrated through the japanese defences to launch planes from a Point still nearer the coast. There were other possibilities however such As the merchant ships requisitioned by government several Hundred vessels affected by new order Washington april 18�?<u.r> a the War shipping administration has requisitioned a fall essential Ocean going tankers and dry cargo vessels owned by american citizens a Admiral Emory s. Land administrator announced today. The announcement said the action affected a several Hundred the government already has taken title to or is using 75 per cent of u. S. Freighter tonnage. Under Marine act. The general requisitioning was ordered under the merchant Marine act of 1936 which says a whenever the president shall proclaim that the Security of the National defense makes it advisable or during any National emergency declared by proclamation of the president it shall be lawful for the maritime commission to requisition or Purchase any vessel or other water Craft owned by citizens of the United states or under construction within the United states. The War shipping administration recently created by president Roosevelt has taken Over functions of the maritime commission in directing the operation of the american merchant Marine. Co operate with Navy. Under the requisitioning order the owners of vessels affected will became agents of the War shipping administration which will conduct All future merchant Marine operations presumably in close co operation with the Navy. There has been criticism that certain private ships were allegedly disregarding naval instructions in submarine infested Waters. However it was stated that this was not connected with today order. It was emphasized that the government is not assuming ownership of vessels affected by the order but is a taking Possession on a charter basis with the owners to be paid a at a reasonable an official said the action a taken a to give the government full control Over these ships and to place All shipping operations on a uniform a under this new set up the government no longer will have to negotiate with any ship operate vice president on the journey i tor a he said. A it will merely or from Washington sat in the Audi Der these ships to go where they ence and gazed attentively at her Are the order affects a Ocean going vessels. Generally speaking it does not apply to great Lake ships although a few of them possibly can be transferred to Ocean service it was said. There was no official indication that the requisitioning might be a prelude to the naval operation of the merchant Marine although naval operation has been considered. The proposal that the Navy operate the merchant Marine for the duration of the War has been made several times but difficulties involved have made the action seem j unlikely. Must repay owners. Should the Navy operate the i merchant Marine the Crews probably would enlist As regular seamen while the officers would enter the naval Reserve and be placed i on Active duty aboard their own vessels. Under the merchant Marine act Wallace s son gets army bars Aberdeen. Md., april 18.�? a vice president Henry a. Wallace today told his 23-year-old son Robert and 94 other newly commissioned second lieutenants that in the latter part of 1942 the United states will be producing More War material than any nation a for combination of nations in the worlds history. Speaking during graduation ceremonies at the officer candidate school in the army ordnance training Center Here Wallace said americans hated to turn from thoughts of peace to military matters because they did not feel human Progress Lay in that direction but that now they Are in the fight a with mrs. Wallace who accompanied son throughout the ceremonies. The latter a husky six feet two youth sat on the stage with his fellow graduates. Entered As draftee. Young Wallace entered the army As a draftee. Among the other new lieutenants was a regular before army enlisted Man. John r. Black Well of Cumberland md., who was cited for meritorious conduct at Hickam Field Hawaii during the dec. 7 raid. The vice president told the graduates and guests that for the rest of this year nearly half of the National Effort will be devoted to War. A now that we have to fight a Wallace said a we Are going to fight with enthusiasm doing the Job mom wholeheartedly than either the germans or the a by the last half of this year we shall be producing More War material than any nation in the history of the world a he assured.
