Guam, Sunday, June 17.—
(AP)—The U. S. Tenth army captured the last three Japanese- held hills on southern Okinawa's high plateau Saturday with the unintentional help of enemy artillery, which mistakenly shelled its own forces on one of the peaks before he Americans took it.
The 96th infantry division seized the 548-foot summit of Yuza hill, highest on the escarpment line, which the Nipponese had used effectively as an artillery position.
