Apparently without knowledge of

kinied themselves into classes for

to afford first aid service either to
themselves or to other persons in need
of such help and having pursued cours
es of training cnosen uy memseives.
have then applied to division head
quarters for certificates of fitness.
It devolves upon the divisional of
ficers to decline to furnish these cer
tificates as requested, entirely apart
from all considration of the fitness of
the persons making application and
simply because of the deviation from
the required procedure involved in
such cases.
First nid organizations regularly au
thorized by the American Red Cross
secure their official identity by coil-
formink' strictly to the directions giv
en by the chairmen of the chapters in
which such units are formed, and in
no other way. Full information ns to
the nroner method for procedure in
this liehnlf is obtainable at all times
at chapter headquarters. It would I e
well, therefore, for persons wno nave
become members of first aid units that
have not been duly authorized to ef
fect valid organizations of their re
spective units without delay and there
after to arply for certificates, with
their credentials duly validated.
It will be a special pleasure of the
official organizations of the American
Red Cross, at all times, to facilitate,
in every way, the realization of the
desire of all fit applicants to rentier
firt aid service and to grant certifi
cates asked whenever applicants lie
found qualified for the worK.

Sharp Wedge Being Driven
Toward rismes; New
Trap Is Plan
By John De Gandt. Special Corres
pondent for The Uaitrd Preaa
PARIS, July 29. Sweeping north
ward from Ourcq, th Franco-Americans
are now within eight miles of
Fismes, the important German con
centration center on the Vesle river.
Desperate fighting is progressing in
the new pocket between Ourcq and
the Vesle. when the Germans ar
strongly covering their retreat to th
Vesle.
At points, the Franco-Americans
have pushed several kilometers be
yond Ourcq.
Striking northeastward from Fer-en-Tardenois,
the Franco-Americans
apparently are driving sharp wedg
towards Fismes.
The battlefront dispatches show
-iny salient with its spex at Nesle and
bases at Sergy and points north of
Fere-en-Tardenois.
The Germans, evidently resJishur
the danger of this wedge, fiercely
.-ounterattacked today on th east aid
of the wedge on a two-mile front be
tween Nesle and Sergy. This was
completely repulsed. Sergy changed
hands several times but th French
now hold it. The enemy losses wen
terrific.
Paris dispatches place the Franco
Americans within eight miles of Fis
mes, which is the important point be
tween Rheims and Soissons. If Fis
mes is captured, it might split th
Crown Prince's army.
