Small Raids and Make i Slight Gains
Paris, June 4. American troops have struck their first
blow in the new battle of the Marne. Fighting side by
sjde with the French, they hurled back a German force
which reached the southern bank of the river the first
time the Marne has been crossed by the enemy since early
in the war. ,
"In heavy fighting south of the Ourcq, the Germans,
with the help of heavy artillery concentrations, carried
.Mosloy, Neuilly-flja-Porterie. In violent fighting these
villages were taken and re-taken."
.The Germans crossed the river south of Jaulgonne,
mid-way between Chateau-Thierry and Dormans.
The Franco-American force took a hundred prisoners.
After the boches had been hurled back the French' and
Americans destroyed the bridge.
An American force also stopped the German advance
before Neuilly wood, hurling the Huns back by a magnif
icent counter attack. ,
"An American force stopped the Ger
mans attempting to reach Neuilly
wood,' 'the communique said. "By a
magnificent counter attack, they, hurl
ed the Germans back north of the wood.
fNouilly wood is on the south bank of
the Ourcq river, just weSt of tlws vil
lage of Neuilly- St. Front and seven
miles west and north of Chateau-Thierry).
"Further south, the Germans realized
no gain on the Marne front. One Ger
man battalion which reached the left
bank near Jaulgonne, was hurled back
by a Franco-American counter attack,
with heavy losses. The Bridge was de
stroyed and prisoners taken.
"The Germans were held without pro
gress by the Ftench between the Oise
nnd the Aisne.
"Between the Aisne and the Ourcq
the battle was going on with great vio
lence yesterday evening and last night.
"Violent attacks Wi?rc made in the
region of Pernant, ..Baconin-Et-Breuil,

Hunt Is Under Way All

By Carl D. Groat
(United Press staff correspondent)
-Washington, June 4. Germany has
failed to gain any military advantage
from her spectacular U-boat raids oft
the American coast-
If she intended to terrorize the Am
erican mind she has failed likewise to
accomplish that.
These two facts stood out in bold
lelitf today in thei wake of the star
ling news that Teuton U-boats had
been perating since May 25 off our
coast, bagging probably twelve or more
vessels of various types, but missinj
any cargo or troop transport.
Secretary of the Navy Daniels was
authority for the flat statement that
American naval strength abroad would
not be diverted to home shores because
of the foray. Germany, he suggested,
wanted strongly to dent the American
lineup abroad, so she perhaps could un
dertake important naval actions over

1 War Summary of United Press I
1 1402nd Day of tie War; 75th Day of the big Offensive
Marne Front. American troops sig
nalized their appearance in the new bat
tle of the Marne yesterday evening
by defeating the Germans in two sensa
tional counter attacks.
In conjunction with the French, they
hurled back a German battalion which
had forced the first crossing of the
Marne south of Jaulgonne. This town
is mid-way between Chateau-Thierry
and Veruuil, which represents the four
teen mile front by the enemy north of
the river.
Further to the northwest an Ameri
can detachment, operating alone, stop
ped the Hun advance at Neuilly wood
and threw the Germans back to the
northward. This represented the high
tido of the enemy's westward progress
during the day and stood out above a
series of temporary French defeats to
the north and southward.
Betweeu the Aisrue and the ' Oisc
rivers the Germans failed to gain, but
to the southward, between the Aisne
and the Ourcq, and between the Ourcq
and the Marn.9 they took seven vil
lages. Twe of these, Mosloy and Neuil-ly-La-Porterie,
were taken and retakon
several times and their ultimate fate
was still in doubt.
On the eastern portion of the new
front, between the Marne and Rheims,
there was no ehange.

Are Now Dropping Tons of
Bombs Upon German Troops
Behind Lines
By Henry Wood
(United Press Staff Correspondent)
With the French Armies in The Field,
June 3. French aviators, regaining
complete mastery of the air, dropped
sixty three tons of bombs ou German
troop concentrations back of the Marne
battle front Saturday and Sunday, it
was learned today.
The principal attacks were directed
against Bivouacs and marching troops
iu the concentration regions of Fismes
and Oulchy-Le Chatcav,
One squadron commander sent more
than fifty machines against a column
of marching Germans, five kilometers
(three miles) long. Charging like cav
alry, the air men descended to within
3-j feet of the ground, raining bombs
and machine gun bullets on the column
until it was completely routed. "
During the first week of the Marne
drive the French brought down 23 Hun
airplanes while six "sausage" balloons
were destroyed in the region of Rheims
in one day alone.
Everywhere the French squadrons are
successfully breaking op columns of Ger
mans marching to the front. Reconnoi

Congress May Investigate
Its Own Law Breaking
Washington, June 4. Congress pro
poses to investigate itself.
Professedly shocked by disclosures
of a local newspaper purporting to
show use of liquor in the house office
building in "dry" territory, niembers
wore demanding an investigation. The
newspaper printed a picture of twenty
nine "empties" which it said came
from a barrel in the lavatory of the
fourth floor of tho office building. It
carried quotes of janitors and others
tending to show that a collection of
"dead soldiers" daily in that region
was not uncommon. t '
Prohibition people attempted to
make the pictuie and story appear a
plant by tho wets.
It has been common gossip here that
some congressmen though voting for
dry measures, "got theirs" in the way
of liquid goods even though the -town
is dry and importation from adjoiniug
cities more or less restricted.
Rome congressional leaders professed
to bo shocked at the insinuations of
