tained fully 70,000 casualties in- the
two days ngnung in the "Dormans
pocket" south of the Marne, the Matin
declared today.
London, July 18. American wound
ed arriving today from the seme of
heavy fighting on the French front
drew cheers from crowds at the Char
ing Cross station. Sympathetic girls
flung flowers at the men as they
were taken from trains and loaded in
ambulances. Hands were waved as the
American soldiers were taken away.
Washington, July 18- American
troops have gained entire possession of
their sector on the south bank of the
Marne General Pershing reported to
day under dato of July 17.
German thrusts against the Ameri
can positions northwest t of Chateau
Thierry were "completely broken up"
Pershing's communique follows:
"In the Marne sector our troops
have entirely 'gained possession of the
south bank of the river. Northwest of
Chateau-Thierry the enemy yesterday
repeated his attempt of the preceding
day to penetrate orr lines near Vaux.
His attack was completely broken
up by our artillery fire before reaching
our linos.
"Yesterday in the region of Thia
court a hostile airplane was shot down
by one of our aviators."
. "Northwest of Chateau-Thierry, be
tween the evening of July 14 and tho
evening of July 16, the enemy made de
termined but entirely unsuccessful at
tacks on our positions near Vaux," sec
tion B. "During the night July 14 to
15, he delivered a heavy bombardment,
which included the use of much gas and
which in tho early morning developed
into a barrage on tho Vaux area. Un
der cover of this, a storming party at
tacked the village. The system of in
filtration by groups was used and some
of these groups .passed one ot our ad
vanced outposts, northeast of Vaux.
Our troops delivered withering ma
chine gun fire 011 the assailants and
counter attacked on tho riht of the
assaulting party, where- the penetra
tion had taken plaice. At the bamo time
our artillery dropped u barrage in this
section to cut off the nnimy ietrtat..
The enemy tied but many wet- caught
by our iba-ragc and IS tak'11 prisoners.
The attaick vvas a conplwe failure, '.he
enemy at no time penitra! lg our lines
"On the evening of July 15 the at
tacks in this region were, renewed. A
box barrage, which again included many
gas shells, was placed by the enemy on
the Vaux region at 9:30 o'clock in tho
evening and several large hostile
groups attempted to advance, firing
heavily on our positions. This attempt
also collapsed. Our infant' fire and
a creeping barrage from our uivn Dat
tcries again broke up th assault. ' '

Pershing Reports Success.
Washington, July 18. General Per
shing, in dispatches to the war depart
ment thiB afternoon announced pro
gress of the Franco-American counter
offensive on the Marno-Aisne front.
Commenting on Rersliing'8 report,
Secretary Baker said it was clear that
ninny trfoners and much war material
had been taken. Baker saii.
"Official confirmation of the open
ing of the eountor offensive along the
linu ctMcd in the iw.ipa;ir$ has ar
rived r(m General P'tvii; j,
American troops! participated both
as complete divisions and as units in
association with the French.
''The furst objectives seem every
where to have been attained and, while
no actual count has been made, it is
clear that many prisoners have been
taken and that guns and other war ma
terial have been captured.
"Our official reports also confirm
the fact that the American soldiers
advanced with the greatest dash and
gallantly and were still advancing
when hst heard from.''
' French Cormter-Attack.
London, July 18. French forces, at
tacking on a three mile front from the
Marne northward, east of Chateau
Thierry, have recaptured Nanteuil, Yen
teuil and the Bois De Roi, it was learn
ed from an authoritative source this
afternoon.
The French have' been driven from
tie crest of the ridge south of. Dor
mans by a German local operation.
The front about Chateau-Thierry has
become stabilized, p - 4 I ftl
sary for thetm to throw in if they
would continue their push toward Eper
nay.
There ie just the barest possibility
that instead of using these reserves,
in an apparently fruitless effort to
take Epernay the Germans will attempt
another gamble and attai'k the British
in the Somme and Ancre regions. But
the British are on the alert and in the
meantime the allied reserves are grow
ing. London morning newspapers are
cautiously optimistic. The Express de
clares there is a possibility that ' 'the
failure will become a diater to the
Hun."
"lit is dangerous to say it is a colos
sal defeat until we are more certain
the German has shot his bwlt," the
Mail said.

Washington, July 18. The great
news of the Franco-American offen
sive was dispatched to the White
House today as rapidly as it came into
the Washington office of the United
Press. President Wilson scanned the re
ports eagerly upon his return from golf
at noon and throughout the afternoon
was kept intimately in touch by tele
phone with all developments as car
ried over the United Press.
New York, July 18. A' cablo oper
ator feverishly called "NX" (the Un

"NX flood newsINX good news!''
and ten seconds later the United Press
had flushed throughout the country tho
greatest thrill it has known since the
Americans entered the trenches in
France.
Kxtras seeped from the presses from
Boston to Ban Diego.
Market operations in Wall Street sus
pended as the tickers repeated the Un

In Birmingham an impromptu
thanksgiving prayer service was held in
a lading restaurant. The war depart

Officials Are Eager
Washington, July 18. News of the
beginning of a Franco-American smash
between the Aisne and the Marne was
received with intense eagerness by mil
itary officials at the war department
today.
The sweeping attack in which Am
erican regulars and marines swept for
ward frone one to nearly two miles be
tween Foutonoy, near boissons and Bel
lau, west of Chateau-Thierry, was look
ed upon as intended to turn the Ger
man flank.
The attack apparently s iat right an
gles with tho line of the recent German
advance. The latest aTTiud attack is ex
pected to harass the enemy and divert
the Gorman thrust by an attack from
behind.
This move may serve to halt or delay
an apparent plan of the Germans for an
attack around Albert.
That tho allies were on tho offensive
wa particularly cheering; to American
army officers, who long have chafed
at a purely defensive policy.
