U.S. NAVY SMASHES JAPANESE BASE. U.S cruiser and destroyer shells find their marks and leave the burning smudges of Japanese defensive forces off Wake ISland, the pacific. The long black smudge to right is from a Japanese patrol boat, which is still under destroyer gun fire, one salvo of which is indicated by the white splashes. the two dark smoke smudges to the left of the center of the picture are from burning sections of a Japanese four-motored plane. During this combined American sea-air attack on Wake Island, which was one of a series of successful U.S. Navy raids on Japanese held bases, shore batteries, were silenced and hangars, storerooms, ammunition dumps, gasoline, and other fuel stores, patrol boats, several dredges and fueline barges were destroyed.
