MIGHTY JUMPING-OFF PLACE FOR INVASION

PHILIPPINES ROLE

Millions Of Tons Of Arms

Pouring In

N.Z. Press Association—Copyright Rec. noon. MANILA, July 24,

The Philippines are rapidly being converted into a mighty jumping-off place for the invasion of Japan, said Lieutenant-General Wilhelm Styer, in an interview. Millions of tons of supplies were pouring into Manila. Rear bases in Australia and New Guinea would be rolled up rapidly, the remaining troops and supplies moving to the Philippines. Batavia radio announced that Japan was making hasty preparations at Singapore and on the China coast to repel invasion which was believed to be not far off.

Japs Talk Of Defence

Tokyo radio reported that th<» speedy construction of defences would prevent easy landings while Japanese troops on the China coast presented a flank danger to an enemy attempting to land on the Japanese homeland. The radio also said that Japan's Totalitarian party would meet tomorrow to hear a report by Dr. Shimomura "on the latest state of His Majesty's health." Foreign Minister Togo would give a detailed explanation of the international situation and Captain Jurihara, vicechief of the Press Section, would discuss the actual war position.

The radio added_that a vigorous exchange of opinion would take place, after which the President, .General Minami, would lead members in shouting "Banzai." The chief of the United States Army Air Forces, General H. H. Arnold, told a correspondent in Manila of plans for greater blows against Japan. "We will use all the air power we can lay our hands on," he said. "We are going to use it to the maximum extent and there will be a place for both the Royal Air Force and the Royal Australian Air Force."
