Americans Among Reserves
Ready To Be Launched Into
the BattleJMow Bein Fought
:'.fl YJrti?'5
NEW YORK, June 2r7T(As8ociated Prc8i) While the German
progress within the salient driven towards the Marne has been
checked c6mpletejy on the east, thfown back on the Marne and
practically held on the west, a heavy new movement was begun
yesterday south of the Oise and Ailette Rivers, northwest of Sois
sons, with the Germans making some progress against desperate
Berlin claims that a general advance was made yesterday along
their whole western battlefront, from Noyon to Chateau Thierry,
but a reading of the map shows the fighting lines to be practically
where it was on Friday between Soissons and the Ourcq River
valley and pushed back south of the Ourcq and from the Marne.
North of Soissons the Germans have made advances.
It is. apparently the German effort to crush out the French
ralient of Soissons, linking up their own salient towards the Marne
with that driven in March towarda Amiens and Montdidier, thus
opening the way to paris via the Marne and the Oise.
The reserves of General Foch are now arriving along the battle
curve in increasing numbers. Among these reserves are regiments
of Americans, who have already reached important areas oh the
line Despatches lo not state that the Americans arc as yet actually
in the buttle, but their employment will probably commence today.
( urrespoiulcnts at French headquarters stntr that the Americans
nc i-airer for their chance in the great battle.
Yesterday morning found the Germans pressing hard for pos
session of Chateau Thierry, the extreme south point of their ad
vance, upon the Marne. To the north and east along the right
bank of the river other (icrman forces were active and numerous
ittempts to cross the river were made. None of these attempts
was in force, however, and no serious effort to establish a foothold
on the left bank was made. The French had no difficulty in throw
ing back the detachments. At Chateau Thierry the fighting was
more serious, but here also the French were victorious and the
'ierniau advance was checked and rolled back almost in the Ourcq
North of Chateau Thierry, at Neuilly-St. Front. mhhIi of the
()mci. and at t'hony, north of the Ourcq, the Germans were check
ed ami held, the invaders making futile efforts to push further west
ward. At both these points and in the valley between the fighting
was desperate, the German losses being heavy. The German ad
vance here is now five miles west of the Chateau Thierry-Soissons
r i. id.
Throughout the morning there was heavy fighting on the
Rhciiiis side of the salient, particularly to the south of that ?ity.
Mere again the French proved victor, in one heavy counter along
the 1 ormans Kheiins railroad, southwest of. Rhcims, the French
taking two hundred prisoners and capturing, four German tanks
Last nifU tlitrAnglo-French heJd their Rheims line intact, with
the city strongly defended, and the German efforts to extend their
salient along this side have been apparently abandoned.
Southwest of Soissons, near Chaudin, a heavy German drive
was smashed early in the morning, the French throwing the attack
rs 1
iacK and taxing tne initiative,
and indicting great losses on
In Soissons itself there was desperate street fighting through
nit the day, the l-'rench defending the southwest outskirts of the
citv successfully" and sending each German assault reeling hack.
I he 1 lermans lost most heavily in this fighting.
M'tiiial despatches from Paris state that northwest of Soissons,
wlu-re the Germans attacked in heavy force, the French resisted
Mi-iingU. indicting heavy losses and withdrawing only when the
iiulnumhering Germans threatened to overwhelm their positions.

Tins by Water Ballast
The new I v pe of scow cull )e made
to turn over at a sharp angle and auto
matically dump the rocks that are on
leek. This canting of the scow Is
iiiised by allowing water to enter one
side of the punt by way nf two valvea
which are npcintcil from the deck. As
soon as wafer begins to enter the scow
she starts t lean to one ' side and
when the 10 cessary angle is reached
the rocks are thrown off. The scow
when relieved of her load ia towed
back to the do.-k and although she ia a
trifle lopsided that does not affect her
vovng". When a fresh load of rock is
placed on the scow she comes to an
even keel nnd the water is pumped
This self dumping scow is the idea of
Mr. West who experimented for some
time with models before deciding to
onstnet the laiye punt nlong the lines

in Washington. However, federal in
q.. . tors are on the job in Halo, rock
litis already been dumped and there is

proceed with the extension as rapidly
as possible.
