The U    tonight raided a store which was the warehouse for stolen communications equipment (apparently from U.S. Bases) and arrested three persons.

We must trace the other conspirators.

The heroin manufacturers (another laboratory has been raided in Caloocan, still belonging to the Tan Su syndicate) must be tried by the Military Tribunal and if found guilty, executed publicly.

And the same thing must be done to the AFP personnel who participated in the manufacture of the bomb in Joe’s Dept. Store (Sgt. Gacutan)
