Life in Denver is always a surprise. We were out for a short drive when my father saw this horse tied up at a supermarket sign. He always has his camera handy so he pulled over and snapped this shot. We’re getting accustomed to such sights. On the war fronts, most of the action seems to be in the Pacific. The Allies landed today in Biak in Indonesia. This is Operation Horlicks. The Japanese sent cruisers Kinu, Aoba, and destroyers Shikinami, Uranami and Shigure fromTarakan to reinforce Biak with 2,300 troops from Zamboanga on Mindanao; however, after being sighted by B-24 bombers and receiving word of the American invasion of Saipan, the operation was canceled and the Japanese troops were landed at Sorong instead.
