Bong Raises Bag
Of Jap Planes To 38
Leyte — (UP) — America's lead-1
ing air ace — Major Richard
Bent, of Poplar, Wis. — has shot |
down two more Jap planes, rais- !
ing his total bag to ;58.
Bong scored his latest victories '
in air battles yesterday against
Japanese planes protecting a con-
voy west of Leyte and other
enemy aircraft attacking Amer-
ican naval forces in Ormoc Bay.
Even as the Wisconsin ace
was getting his two new kills, it
was announced in Washington
that he has been awarded the
Congressional Medal of Honor.
The award went to him because
he has voluntarily engaged in
I combat although his present as-
signment as a gunnery officer
! does not require it. Major Bong
has shot down 10 planes while
supposedly on non-combat duty.

Provide 53,000X00 War Jobs
CHICAGO — (UP) — Stude-
haker President Paul Hoffman
says a record expansion in the
output of goods and services ov-
er 1940 levels is the only sound
way to provide a required

Hoffman asserts that a gross
output of from 155,000,0(H),000 *n
170,000,000,0C0 must be achieved

attitude which has suggested

more plausible si 20,000,000.000

"Not do I think it realistic." he
adds, ."to give heed to a gospel
