Admiral Halsey's powerful Third fleet guarded against a possible banzai attack by the Japanese air force today as his' carrier planes blasted the Yokohama docks and submarine pens after being turned back by heavy weather from the Tokyo area.
Associated Press War Correspondent Richard K. O'Malley with the fleet reported six enemy planes attempting sneak attacks, were shot down by carrier planes.
A Tokyo broadcast, recorded by the FCC, -admitted "some damage' was caused by 800 carrier-based planes attacking the Kanto cTistricI of east central Honshu. The attack, the Japanese said, lasted 12 hours and 17 planes were shot down and 25 damaged.
Possibility of a Japanese aerial banzai assault against the fleet was voiced by some officers, O'Mailey said, because of persistent attempts fay reconnaissance planes to locate the American force.
