ARMED FORCES RADIO BROADCAST CONFIRMS REPORT OF TWO 97TH REGIMENTS TAKING OVER IN YOKOHAMA
Confirmation of reports that the 97th Division has largely replaced 43d Infantry Division troops in Yokohama came yesterday from Armed Forces Radio on Guam.
An announcement from the headquarters of Lt. Gen. R. E. Eichelberger, Eighty Army commander, clarified earlier reports that "there is only one more combat team which must arrive to bring forces up to full strength" by striking the 43d Division from the list of units now occupying Japan's main home island of Honshu.
This would indicate that reports in yesterday's TRIBUNE that two of three combat teams from the 97th are now in Japan.
