AND CHECK HUNS
Enemy Uses Sixty Divisions and
Is Bringing Up Other Re-linforcements
If Offensive Fails As Indica-j
ted Italians Are Likely To ;
Counter Hard i
WASHINGTON, June 18 (Associated Tress i - iih the Aus
trians everywhere held in check along the mure than hundred-mile
front in Italy, the close of the third day l the foe offen
sive finds the Allied forces turned aggressor;; in several of the more
important sectors. Everywhere the Allies arc stiffening their de
fense and no where have the Austrian been able to break through
or even to deeply penetrate the advanced defensive area. Alarmed
by the opposition which they are meeting and the possibility of a
counter which will put them on the defensive they .arc reported to
be bringing up heavy reinforcements. Already they are employing
sixty divisions without success, since the initial impetus of their
hrust on Saturday morning. Since that time they hae lost ground.
HELD BEYOND PIAVE RIVER
Stiffening their defense yesterday ihe Italians prevented any
further crossings of the Piave River. On iheortherly and easterly
ends ti tke fcagftw-jKMVewr; the YdTs pressing hard in an effort
o reach the Venetian plains and to break a way through the moun
tain fastnesses wtfich are held by the Italian and Uritish and French
Intense fighting prevailed yesterday along the whole of the
I'iave River sector where, in spite of the enormous losses which
they have already suffered the foe persisted in its efforts to cross
the river, only to suffer further great losses in killed, wounded and
prisoners. The night official report from koine told this and said
that everywhere along the line the Italians and her allies were hold
ing strongly. Four thousand five hundred prisoners were reported
to have been captured while the Austrian official report docs not in
crease its Sunday night estimate of 1',(XK) prisoners since the begin
ping of the offensive.
DESERTIONS ARE FEARED
Earlier reports from Italy said that the battle seemed to be
only in its beginning and that the eni-mx wa.t emploving sixtx tlivi
sioiis. It had been noted that the Slax troops were placed m the
Iront lines, the regiments being stationed at irregular interxals. He
hind were (he Tyroleans and it was evident from the arrangement
ol the troops that fears of desertion w ere felt and the pi ecautionarx
arrangement made to prevent it.
The situation seemed highly assuring to the Italians although
the foresaxv an attempt at a great pinching movement and expected
the battle to continue on for several days before definite dctermiua
tion xxas reached. The prisoners taken were ragged and ill fed in
appearance and seemed glad to have the lighting ox er with I lead
(piarters expressed itself as satisfied and one general said: "Now
let the Americans send oxer to us four or fixe arm divisions and
we will shake hands with them and take them with us into Austria "
The morale of the Italians is splendid and in great contrast to that
of last fall.
REINFORCEMENTS ON WAY
Indicating that the battle is in its early stages and showing
the desperate efforts the Austrians will make, reports from (Icnexa
said that messages received from the frontier indicated Austria was
bringing up great numbers of reserves to reinforce the front. Train
load after trainload of soldiers could be seen making their wax- to
In its official report of the Uritish participation the xxar office
in London last night said that opposite the liritish front the foe xxas
reorganizing afjer the severe defeat it had received.
EMPEROR CARL WATCHES
ienna despatches to Amsterdam announced that Kaiser Karl
was at the Italian front watching the progress of the battle and
that no German forces were participating in it. This report
claimed that lJ.OfX) prisoners had been taken on the Campo, Silt
Tiave River fronts and ground had been gained west of San
hen told of the remark made by the Italian general. Secret. n
Itaker declined to make any statement relative to the number of
troops that xill be sent to Italy until such time as thev are salelx
COUNTER IS EXPECTED
Here there prevails a strong feeling that if this Austrian olicn
-ix e shall fail, as indications are now that it is likely to do, the ll.il
lans will launch a strong counter offensive. Army officers are glee
fully optimistic. Some think that the lull on the Western front
max- be due to the fact that the Germans are waiting results in Italv
and preparing to act according to developments. Thev express the
belief that Germain is already preparing to rush aid to its allv m
case of necessity.

SUNK BY DIVER
American Vessels Heed Warning
and Commerce Against Which
Raid Is Chiefly Directed Is Es
caping With Small Loss
BUILDING FAR AHEAD
OF LOSSES INFLICTED
Sixty-three Ships Will Be Launch
ed On Independence Day and
Building Speeds Forward At
Unheard of Pace
W ASHINGTON'. June 18 V
(Associated Press) Two
iih iff Norwegian vessels have
lii-en destroyed by the German
millers off the Virginia coast and
the divers were operating as late
as last Friday. The losses are'
falling heavily upon Norway and
iiininarativt-l) lightly thus far Mf- '
on the United States against
whose shipping the foe is suppos- '
edly directing its energies. ,
Both of these latest known vie- '
tims of the diver raiders were sail-,
ing vessels. The Kringsjaa, which ;
was submarined ninety miles off
the coast of Virginia, was a ship -of
1958 tons burden. Her entire '
crew is aboard an incoming':Arn
erican -warship. The Samoa was
a bark jf 10 ton JMidas sunk,
by -shell fire on. Friday, morning ,
near the same spot where, the ',
Kringsjaa sank. Fifteen of her
crew were rescued. ' - s
Recently there have been no re-
ports of losses to American ship
ping from these raiders and the
escape of a liritish steamer after
a running fight indicates the un
dersea craft are not fast. enough to
prey upon speedy coastwise com-,
merce. It is also evident that Am
erican shipping is generally obey
ing the warning orders and keep
ing out of the zone of greatest
Thus far, and especially since
the warning was issued, losses to
American shipping has been light
and the shipbuilding program is
easily exceeding the losses.
Sixty-three ships are to be
launched on a single day within
the next month and Fourth of
July has been selected as the fit
ting occasion for the epoch malt
ing record. Throughout the coun
try ship building is speeding for
ward as was not considered pos
sible by the most sanguine. This
is su on the Atlantic, the Gulf and
the Pacific. In the California(
yards this is especially so. Day
;md night shifts work that a hun
dred thousand tons of steel ship
ping may be ready for launching
on the Fourth. The present plants
nl one Pacific port are being en
larged so as to provide seventy
