Seems to be Vast Encircling Proiect umed Against Paris
By Henry Wood,
(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
With the French Armies in the Field, June 10.The
present drive on the Montdidier-Noyon front, according
to military critics, constitutes the northern arm of a vast
encircling project aimed against Paris.
This movement, starting from the Avre, in the region
of Montdidier, and being southward as far as possible to
wards the capital, would co-ordinate with the southern
enveloping attack from Chateau-Thierry, thus seeking to
envelope the American and French troops between
Montdidier and Chateau-Thierry.
The Germans still have a minimum of about fifty un
engaged divisions (600,000 men) for their present effort.
The determined resistance of the French, who are holding
the enemy on the wings and only permitting comparative
ly slight progression in the center, has gained sufficient
time to enable the alliesfor the first time since the
rginal drive in March to bring up reserves before an
appreciable amount of ground was lost.
The Germans began Sunday's attack with ten divisions
(120,000 men), but suffered such heavy losses they were
forced to engage other divisions before nightl .;' .

BRITISH NAVAL EXPERT
UPON U-BOAT RAID
First Lord of Admiralty Is,

By Arthur E. Mann
(United Press Staff Correspondent)
London, June 10. "It is too early
yet to forecast what the presence of a
German, submarine off the American
coast may proteud," said Sir Erie Ged
des, first lord of the admiralty, in an in
terview with the United Press today.
"On the one hand, it may bo meivdy
a spasmodic raid similar to that canied
out by the U-53 earlier in the war, or it
may mean the beginning of a serious
submarine campaign off the American
"The vigorous and successful British
anti -submarine campaign in our waters!
lias made submarine operations very
costly to the Germans and perhaps they
calculate on getting better results along
the American coast. In this, however
tlicy will undoubtedly lv disappointed,
since all our experience over chro has
been placed without reservation at the
service of th.1 American administra
tion, which will thus be able to base its
anti-submarine measures on practical re
sults. "There is no indication that there
has been' a sudden increase in tlio num
ber of enemy submarine?. On the con
trary, there is no doubt we nro sink
ing submarines faster than the Germain
ar.? building them."
Sir Eric, pointed out that there is
some advantage in forcing the submar
ines tu operate farther from the Ger
man bases. "The longer they have to
travel to rneh the operating zone, the
less fuel and supplies they will have and
consequently the less time they will
have to spend in the operating zone,"

burg's new ofeusiv.e between Montdid

the important French communications

Von Kluck's famous advance on Paris
during the early weeks of the war.
Von Hind?nburg 'is returning, in fact
to the original German strategy of 1914,
in all its essential details. This month's
advance to the Marne is no more than
a reproduction of the drive directed
over tho tamo ground in tlio summer of
1914 by the Baxon general Von Hansen,
while tho present advance toward Com
picgno is a reacceptance of the strate
gic policy of Von Kluck. Both Von
llausen and Von Kluck are now in re
tirement because of their failures. Their
impetuous efforts were overcome by
General Foch's famous counter offen
sive south of the Marne, and General
Foch now faces the same situation that
confronted Marshal Joffre in August,
Even the time clement vi operating

In 1914 to capture Paris and so end
the war in the west before Russia
could develop her major offensive. In
the same manner, Hiudenburg is now
attempting to rush to Faris in the hope
that he can end the war before Amer
ica's major offensive begins. Thcre Is
this difference, however, between the
situatiou theu and now: the allies had
no largo force of reserves protecting
the road to Poris In 1914, while General
Foch's principal reserve strengtn is at
present concentrated southwest of Gom
plegne where he is strongly blocking
Von Kluck's old pathway to the capital.
At n. noint south of Amien fire the
j allies better prepared to resist tho Ger
man advance than between MoutUiuier
and Noyon. Every hundred yards gain
ed by Hiudenburg in this sector can
only be et a cost in casualties equalling
the highest slaughter of German man
power during the Picardy offensive.
Genral Foch has a splendid railway
service running into the Compiegne for
the rapid movement of troops.
