OVERSEA NEWS
The 19th raid was made by
Japanese bombers at Port
Moresby, capital of Papua, yes-
terday morning. No damage
was caused, and there were no
casualties. It was the third
raid on Port Moresby in three
successive days.
A war communique issued by the
Prime Minister, Mr. Curtin, last night
stated: "Three bombers took part in
the attack, dropping 16 bombs, most
of which fell into the sea. The
enemy's aim was upset by accurate
anti-aircraft fire, which kept the
bombers very high. The raid lasted
about a quarter of an hour." (See
page 5.)
Pacific Problems.—President Roose-
velt, at his Press conference on Tues-
day, indicated that he was not im-
pressed with the need for constituting
any new consultative body at Wash-
ington to deal with Pacific war
problems.
Port Moresby Raids.—The smallness
of the Japanese air force used yester-
day morning caused some surprise at
Port Moresby, as at least 44 aircraft
had been employed in the two raids
on the previous days.
Details of Tuesday's raid at Port
Moresby, when one attack was made
on an aerodrome and another on the
town, show that damage was negligible
and that no casualties resulted.
Air Initiative.—Our war correspon-
dent in Papua says that evidence of
the Japanese determination to at-
tempt to recapture the initiative in
the Few Guinea area, which has been
wrested from them by the aggressive
Australian and American tactics, has
been given by the attacks of the past
three days on Port Moresby.
Aircraft Destroyed.—A Washington
communique giving additional details
of the raid on Lae, capital of New
Guinea, on Sunday, says that four Fly-
ing Fortresses and nine P40 fighters
of the U.S. Army and two Hudson
bombers of the R.A.A.F. took part.
Burma Position.—The situation on
the Toungoo front (150 miles north
of Rangoon) is serious, avoiding to a
New Delhi communique.

There were few surprise re-
the Joint Parliamentary Com-
mittee on Broadcasting, which
was tabled in the Federal Par-
liament yesterday.
The committee could reach no
unanimity on the subject of complete
nationalisation. Though Labour mem-
bers made a separate recommendation
in favour of nationalisation, it is
known that this will not be accepted
by the Government.
Australia As Allied Base.—The
Prime Minister, Mr. Curtin, referred
in the House of Representatives yes-
terday to the general acceptance by
the Allies of the Australian Govern-
ment's view that the Anzac Area was
vital to their cause.
This, he said, might well indicate
the turning point of the war—pro-
vided it was followed by swift and
resolute action.
Respirators for Civilians.—A million
respirators for use by the civilian
to be distributed shortly.
In making this announcement yes-
terday the Minister for National
Emergency Services, Mr. Heffron, said
that the respirators would be made
available by the Department of Home
Security, and would be distributed by
the National Emergency Services.
Mr. Casey's Appointment—A spirited
denial of claims that he had been
responsible for causing to develop in
Australia "a very severe breach of
unity with Britain" was made by Mr.
Curtin yesterday in the debate on Mr.
Casey's new appointment.
Obstacles to Marriage.—Soldiers of
the United States Army have been
warned of the difficulties which are
likely to arise if they marry while
abroad on service.
Coal Award.—The Central Coal Re-
ference Board yesterday granted a
uniform 40 hour week in the coal-
mining industry, applicable to New
South Wales, Victoria, and Tasmania.
Women's Wages.—Pending the es-
tablishment of a tribunal which will
fix wages for women in munition fac-
tories it is proposed that they shall
receive 60 per cent. of the wages now
paid to men.
