Recruits Bear Brunt of Fighting; Marines
AIsq Win Victory and War Council Says
America atemmjig nae ror me Allies
W ASHINGTON. June 6 (Associated Press) American troops.
made up largely of newly enlisted men, only recently arrived
in I'ratn e, bore the brunt of a massed attack by German veterans
yesterday afternoon and signally defeated the foe in. the biK"1
engagement in which the men of I'ncle Sam have yet engaged in
West of Vcuilly Woods, which marks the tip of the German
sa'ient recently driven and where the German invaders are closest
to I'aris, the battle was fought. Here the Americans are holding
the line and guarding the road to the French capital. It was here
that the Americans helped break the German offensive, making a
brilliant bayonet charge atihe end of a long march on Sunday and
throwing the Huns back along a bloody path.
To avenge this defeat the Germans yesterday massed a large
rce which was thrown against the American lines., The Sammies
net the advance steadily and their machine guns mowed the enenn
down in hundreds, keeping up such a pitiless hail of bullets into the
grav ranks that the Germans could no longer face it. The attack
crumbled, then broke and the Germans fell back, fleeing in confusion
It was a complete victory for the American, in their first large
engagement, and the first honors of the battle fall to a regiment
which had not even had trench training nor been before under lire
This regiment, which faced the center of the German advance, had
marched direct from, its training camp to the battlefield and wa
composed of men fresh from the United States.
All the honors of the day did not fall to the doughboys, how
ever. Along the Marne American marines were engaged throughou
the day. In the morning the sea-soldiers charged and captured, a
nest of Ge. man machine guns, wiping out the defenders, killinp
many ami capturing others. During the afterjioon they fought of!
German counters and took more prisoners. Las night they sur
prised and wiped out a large German- patrol. During the day the
successfullv met and repulsed two strong attacks of 'the enemv.
In the Toul sector a patro of only thirty Americans entered
the German lines anil penetrated far back to the third line, of de
fense. There they encountered a German patrol of more tlian 2(X
and attacked them with a vigor that fairly took the superior font
off its feet. The Americans used grenades, rifle and pistol firei
bayonet and clubbed 'muskets and fought the enemy off, althougi
outnumbered seven to one, for more than twenty minutes, inflicting
heavy losses and then falling back in goul order with losses which
under the circumstances are regarded as extremely light.
Accounts of the previous fighting of the Americans are com
ing in despatches from France Which say the American troops de
feated the Germans at three points to the north of the Marne when
they assisted materially in the1 checking of the foe in its yiolen
efforts to proceed further westward.
General Pershing notes that great credit is given to the Amer
iran forces in the official French reports for "their brilliant 'cottntei
attack" to the west of Chateau Thierry.
Despite a long march they'had just completed, the American;
eagerly jumped into the battle within an hour after they reached thf
front. They showed similar spirit and etia1 valor at other point'
ib the north and south of that position.
It was American troops vlu protected the Marne bridge whili
the Allies were crossing and then fought off the Teutons, causinp
sanguinary losses to them before finally destroying the bridge a.'
they, themselves, crossed.
Military chiefs here rejoice because of the facts that the Amer
i -ans are now in the very heart of 'the conflict which they believ
is now almost, if not unite, stabilized since I'.erlin no longer claim;
Further desperate fighting is expected where the American:
now help to bar the way to Paris.
The supreme war council has1 declared that American coopera
tion will make it impossible for the enemy to gain the victory h
vearing down 'the Allied reserves before his own reserves are ex
hausted. '
Official despatches from Paris received last night say the French
rress is enthusiastic in its praise of the American soldiers, theit
fighting and vigor and valor which they are displaying. The Matir
is rexrted as saying: "The Americans have thus, quickly showr
that they are zealous and full spirited in attack, and steady as rock?
in defense. These robust young soldiers in a few short weeks hav
become the equals of the British and French veteran".
Other despatches from Paris quote French army surgeons as
saving that they expect ninety percent of the American wounded
will recover.
The war department gave out the following casualty fist yes
terday: Thirty nine killed in action, thirteen wounded, three dead
i( accidents, six of disease, forty -

whatever damage to American and Allied shipping as was possible.
Survivors of the schooner Lewes and the steamer Carolina said
hat wireless warnings were received aboard those vessels on Sun
lay, notifying them to beware of submarines. ' At seven o'clock a
submarine appeared close off .the Carolina 'and the passengers and
-rew were ordered to leave' the ship irt their small boats, as the
essel was about to be destroyed. The submarine was the U-37.
After the ship had been abandoned and the .boats were being
owed away, the commander of th U-boat ordered them all to re

vho had been left behind. When this man had been taken off,
ihe submarine shelled the steamer, setting fire to her.
