COMPARED TO BATTLE THAT
FOCH PLANS THE PRESENT
BLOW IS BUT MINOR ONE.
Washington. July 20. War de
partment officials expect the real
counter-offensive againnt the Ger
mans to be launched later in the
present year. This was d'isclosed to
members of the house military com
mittee by (ieneral March, chief of
staft. who indicated that tne employ-
jment of possibly eight American Hi-
visions in the present double battle
on the Atsne-Marne-Kheinis front
would not affect materially plans to
hurl overwhelming man-power into
the great struggle to come when the ,
effort to beat the enemy back off
r renin and Belgian son oegins.
It was made plain that the smash-
j ing attack of Franco-American forces
on the Aiane-Marne line is yet re-
gardrd as only a minor operation in
comparison of what is to come. The
. i ,. i i .
success ui inc unvv wunenfu yenier-
dav bv General roch. however, has
already been startling. Otlicial re-
ports from Paris tonight said that
'.17,000 pnsuneis and IICO guna had
'been csptured. The Berlin state-
ment admitted French advances but
I ignored American participation and
j claimed 20,000 prisoners had been
j taken by the Germans in their drive
j launched lust Monday. Apparently
'the enemy commanders dure not ad
mit to the German people that Amer
ican armies are already fighting over
a long front and scoring repeated
successes over veteran German di
visions. KENTUCKY CASUALTIES.
