THE WAR TODAY
WAR NEWS AND WORLD NEWS
ON BATAAN PENINSULA.—
The distant boom of cannon apd
the trickle of battle news from the
Ingle telegraph have bolstered
the morale at the people in occu-
pied Manila, authenticated advices
reaching the U. 8. fighting forces
The Japanese, on the other
hand, by the brutality of theii
now un-uniformed sentries and the
widespread hunger they have
brought to the city have faiie
completely to win the friendship
of Manila's Filipinos in nearly a
month and a half of occupation.
UNDHR HEAVY ATTACK
LONDON. — The British im-
perial line on Singapore, still beat-
ing off the enveloping disaster,
four times counterattacked the
Japanese invaders Thursday, three
of the charges breaking but one
of them accomplishing its appar-
ent objective of covering the con-
tinued evacuation of women and
children and the removal of port-
able military supplies.
Through the day and into the
evening the clipped voice of the
island’s radio assured the world
that the imperial banners had not
yet been struck, hopeless though
the position still appeared.
At 9:30 p. m. Singapore time the
Singapore statfbn wax calling out:
“The Japanese are endeavoring
to obscure the real position on
the Island of Singapore behind
“We are not only going to fight
We are going to win. 'We shall
emerge from this struggle.”

SOUTH IN ISLES
WASHINGTON. — A Japanese
drive southward to occupy the re-
maining islands of the Philippines
was disclosed Thursday as more
enemy troops massed for a renew-
ed attempt to smash the defenses
of the Bataan Peninsula.
Niponese troops who presumably
moved southward from Luzon oc-
cupied the island of Masbate, the
Wit Department announced. Thus
they extended their control to the
