B29s IN NEW STRIKE
WASHINGTON. (AP). —
GUAM (AP) — Flying new "Jack" fighter planes, Japan's recently-Idle combat pilots jumped into the aerial warfare over the homeland , Sunday., trying vainly to item the assault of longrange American Mustangs from Iwo Jims, which ravaged Tokyo airfields for the fourth time in five days.
The Iwo-based Mustang, Okinawa- based Marine Corsairs and Navy search planes destroyed or damaged 50 Nipponese planes, — many on the ground —sank eight small coastal ships and damaged six others. Seven Mustangs were the only American planes reported milling from the day's far-ranging forays which struck nearly every section of Japan's shrinking empire.

BERLIN, (AP) The inter-Allied Deadlock over the government of Berlin continued unbroken today as high diplomats began arriving for the impending Big Three meeting.
Averell Harrirnan, U. S. Ambassador to Moscow, is to land at the Tempelhof airdrome this afternoon and take quarters near the "little White House" prepared for President Truman in the heavily guarded Potsdam area.
A procession of American Limousines started regular service from the airdrome to Potsdam, carrying distinguished visitors.
American Army signal experts were stringing a thick network of cables and wires by which Mr. Truman will be in touch with Washington while he confers with Generalissimo Stalin and Prime Minister Churchill.
Guards from elite Red Army regiments were increased throughout the Potsdam area. A heavy sprinkling of American and British sentries were in the area.
The Berlin government impasse over the issue of supplying food and fuel for the districts occupied by the Americans and British still was unsettled and the possibility increased that the Big Three might have to resolve it.+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
