Filipinos Demand Air Raid Reprisals Funeral service was held Sun day afternoon at the Arbor Grove Methodist church near Millers Creek for Carl Willard Pierce, 23, Wilkes’ first casualty In 'he armed forces since the outbreak of the war. Pierce, a machinist-pilot in ■he U., 9. Navy, was killed In a plane cra-sh near Nova Scotia on December 7. HI? body was found a week later near Halifax, N.C., and 'was sent home for burial. T'hree others were killed and one was Injured In the crash but few details were learned here. He enlls'ed In the navy at the age of 17 and had advanced rapidly.

Manila.—Japanese air squadroaa lost a number of planes in a two- hour bombing attack on the for tress of Corregidor, guardion of Manila Bay, today but avoided any new daylight attacks on the unde fended city of Manila. Demands for retaliatory bomb ing of Japanese cities swept tha capital’s population tonjght after the first bombless day since Christmas Eve. The Japanese apparently were concentrating their air attack on the fortress—known as the Gibral tar of the Philippines—that lies about 30 miles from Manila in the. center of the wide entrance to the I bay. (There was no indication as I to whether the attack was prepar- 'atory to an attempted invasion by sea of the Manila area.) “Corregidor was raided by Jap anese planes today for two houra,** the communique issued by United States headquarters said. "A num ber of Japanese planes were shot down. There is no material change on any part of the two fronU( on land) today.” Leonard Sprinkle Stricken On Sunday Funeral service wac held today at Charl'y church for Leonard Sprinkle, age 52, 'wbo died sud denly Sunday at his home near Benham.
