CAVE WARFARE

JAPAN'S NEW METHOD Guns And Suicide Planes Now More Effective N.Z. Press Association—Copyright Rec. 2 p.m. NEW YORK, July 13. "Japan's surrender must be exacted by force because the Japanese will not surrender to the, inference that they are beaten," said the Under-Secretary for War, Mr. Patterson. "We must prepare ourselves to win the war with Japan in the hard way, -by killing soldiers right through the ruins of Tokyo and throughout the home islands. "The main Japanese armies are still intact. The Japanese have developed a new method of caye warfare and henceforth will be in country favouring the defender. They are also fighting progressively a smarter war with artillery, which is more effective than a year ago.

"Suicide bombers used to come in low along the water, attempting to hit a ship's hull, thus making them an easy mark for- *our gunners, but now they try to drop vertically on the deck from cloud cover. We have recently captured an efficient new type of amphibious tank. New Japanese jeeps and reconnaissance cars have air-cooled engines, offering many advantages for operations in Manchuria where low temperatures are often encountered."
