Tha Americana and Britiah are
now fighting together In Prance.

of the war
Large numbers of American troopa
are putting finishing tonchee to their
preparations for active fighting be
hind tha British line In a beautiful
rolling country which resembles
' , western New York in full bloom.
Tho Americana started Sunday
morning on maneuvers an which they
took their flrst long hike In heavy
marching order under a broiling aun.
After six hours tha Americana were
still full of go when a long-lino af
infantrymen were seen resting in
the shade of a hedge. Soma were
footeore but tho operations were
going to the satisfaction of tha offi
cers "They have covered a good deal of
ground before it waa cool,' said the
colonel In commend. "This hi their
first trial nnder heat and they are
standing it WelL"
The men are pictures of health
and appear to be trained to tha hour
for hard fighting. All wars la good
humor, even thoaa with blistered
"Hail, hail, tha gang'a all hare,"
failed one who, outdistanced by his
company, came limping along down
the dusty road nnder a heavy pack.
Besides ma never and regular ex
' erriae tha boys are being coached ta
the last minute ia Britihsh schools
In all the tactics of modern warfare.
All over tha region where the
Americans are billeted along with the
British there are evidences of how
well the Americans are getting on
with the British.
For several weeks past the Huns
have been engaged aaaiduoualy In
bringing up guns and supplies of alt
ainas and also new forces to recon
, etitute the unit which tha Am.rL
cans, British and French gens tut ta
pieces as tbey tried at various point
to break the allied line and tha feel

offensive on the Western front The
allies, reinforced by many Ameri
cana, are ready for tha issue.
That tha Germans have the cap

evident front their latest epenrUon

which lies only 80 miles northwest

While no large settle actions are
recorded every indication ia that the
Germans are making final prepara
tion for a resumption of the great
drive. Allied forces have taken up
stronger positions and Improved
their linea every where since the
German failed to more than bend
their linea in the March offensive.
It la impossible for the Huns to ever
muster superior numbers again, with
a million American reserves in France
snd on the way.

The young people who are now
taking a course in journalism, and

congratulated. They will enter the
profession along about tha time the

Whstever the part played by the
newspapers in the past, or during
war, they will play a atill more im
portant part when peace again romea

Many of the promiaing young peo

Then, the wsr is rapidly wearing
out thoaa who are now upon the
staffs of the papers. Newspaper men
are getting old more rapidly than
ever before, under the stress and

comes, the newer lights of the pre

genius; the ambitious young people
who are now fitting themselves for
the profession will find themselves In
