"On the lower Devoli, retreating en? emy columns were attacked and dis? persed Thursday night. "Since Juiy 6 we have tnken more han 1.800 prisoners, including sixty ? ine officers." _ The Statement on operations in the Balkans issued by the War Office in Paris to-night says: "EASTERN THEATRE, July 12. There were patrol encounters on the Struma, where Greek troops dispersed a Bulgarian detachment, and at the Cernu Bend. Artillery activity was dis? played by both sides in the neighbor? hood of Doiran, east of the Vardar and in the region of the lakes. In the course of aerial engagemi nts an enemy airplane was forced by the British to '.and near Doiran.

The onemv suffered very heavy ?osses during his retreat." 500 Taken by French In the Recapture of Rouvrelles Plateau tHy The Associated Press) IN THE FRENCH FRONT IN FL'ANCE, July 12.?-The superbly ex? ecuted local action carried out by the French to-day southeast of Amiens not only gave them a large batch of pris? oners, but brought into their posses si< n the entire Rouvrelles Plateau, dominating the region between the rivers Avre and Moreuil and the Noye, through which the main railroad from Paris to Amiens passes, and which has been in the hands of tne enemy since March. More than 500 German officers and men already captured have been senl to the rear, and others are arriving. The artillery preparation precedinf the attack was brief, but it was of i powerful character and the aim of the gunners was so accurate that when thi infantry went over they found tht trees in the small woods abounding ir this vicinity reduced to matchwood. The Germans had laid a widespreac network of barbed wire in these wood: and the shells had blown the win into a great tangle, making the prog ress of the attackers most difficult. Tin French troops, however, overcame th< almost impassable obstacles by gal lant perseverance while under the in cessant fire of hundreds of machint guns. The assault began early in the morn ing and lasted three hours. "?hi Frenchmen advanced at some places t< a depth of 2,000 yards along a fron extending for nearly five miles. Th? village of Castel first fell before thi dashing attack, Anchin Farm next sue cumbed and Groshetre Wood am Brouettes Wood followed. Then Billo Wood was captured. All these posi tions were taken despite the most de termined opposition of the enemy, wh seemed firmly decided to hold the po sitions at all costs. The feat of the French troops wa all the more remarkable as, betwee the two extreme points of the open tion?Senecat Wood and Arriercou Wood?the ground is broken by hill and deep ravines where the enemy ha good shelter and was able to concei trate his forces without being seen. Nothing, however, daunted the Frene infantrymen, and they carried the pa sitions with courage and dash whic took them considerably beyonll the ol jectives set for them. The Germans suffered heavily i dead and wounded, in addition to pri oners, while material and machii guns were captured in considerab quantities. Tht- advance has given tl French good observation posts fro which they can see every movemei of the enemy along the main roai and in Moreuil and MaiUy-Rainevs a region which was the scene of tl severest fighting in March and April.

Prussians Have 47 i Divisions in Russia; Seek Grain and Oil ._'_ Turks Are Cooperating in i Move Toward Baku to Control Caucasus By Aithur S. Draper (Spteial Cabin to The Tribune) (Copyright. 1918, !?>? Tin* Tribune Assuelatlon) LONDON, July 13.?German troops operating in Russia, according to Eng? lish estimates, amount to thirty-two di? visions. A force equivalent to a divi? sion of the German army is in Finland. Austria maintains fifteen divisions in Russia. The German troops in Finland are posted chiefly between Viborg and Lake Ladoga. In Russia proper the armies of the Central Empires stretch in an uneven line from a point near Petrograd to the Black Sea. This line, after running .southward for many miles, sweeps east? ward along the northern borders of the Ukraine, encircles the province of the Don Cossacks and then approaches the Black Sea from the northeast along the Don Valley. Turks March to Baku Further southwest, in the Caucasus, small German forces are marching tow? ard Baku, while the Turns are making for the same objective from the south. The enemj plans in Russia are said to be chiefly economic. Germany and Austria desire to secure grain, metals and oil. Germany also bas a military objective in Finland, where the Kaiser aims to capture the extreme northern point of the country in order to con? vert the harbors into submarine bases. With northern submarine bases. Ger? many hopes to sever all communica? tions with the* Allied powers of West < rn Europe and to occupy Russia's only remaining outlet toward the west by way of the Murm.in coast and Arch ? angel. Germany undoubtedly plans military operations against these ports and the ; surrounding country held at present by the Allies. These operations would be complete with the capture of the town of Vologda, which would completely cut; Russia off from the Western Allies. The Allies landed troops on the Mur- ? man coast in order to protect the peo? ple and munitions from the Germans, at the request of the Russian authorities , of the district, and acting in complete cooperation with the local Soviet. Rainy Night Is Quietest Yet for Americans on Marne (By The Axfiociated Press) WITH. THE AMERICAN ARMY IN FRANCE, July 13.?On the fronts in the Marne district held by American troops last night was the endetest of any since the Germans, in their sweep southward, were stopped sit the north bank of the river. In some sections not a single German shell came over, while in others the artillery fire was far below lhe normal. It has rair.ed every day for the last four days in this region, with the re? sult that the fields and roads are sticky and wet, and unfavorable for marching or fighting. This fact may have had something to do with holding back the expected German offensivot. At the same time the weather has worked to the advantage of the Americans, for during the rainy period, they have been able to strengthen still further their dispositions '.?i forces and their de? fences. The German concentrations are known to be remaining where they were a week ago. Of course there have been movements of enemy forces of which the command has been apprised. It is considered possible that, even with the bad conditions under foot, lhe erfrmy may launch his at? tack at any moment, but it is not believed he will do so until ? the sun dries the earth.

Downtown Office: 16 Wall Street Astor Trust Office: Fifth Avenue at 42nd Street Bankers Trust Company Member Federal Reserve System The Great War?1440th Day German Blow, Aimed at Paris, Appears Near LudendorfF Expected to Hurl Hordes Between Rheims and Verdun Foe Shifts Troops To Southern Line Allied Command Is Fully Prepared and Confident of Blocking Drive By Arthur S. Draper (Special Cable u> The Tribune) (Copyright. 1918, by The Tribune Assodatloa) LONDON, July IS.?Despite heavy showers in the last few days, the Ger? mans seem about ready to open their great summer battle- their most pow? erful and determined blow in the 1918 campaign. Ludendorff wants to score a knockout and a quick decision. France is likely to feel the full weight of the great German army, which has undergone complete reorgan? ization during the last month. Where will the blow fall? It seems a safe guess to select Paris as the German objective. If this guess proves correct there is likely to be a resumption of activi? ties south of Montdidier and possibly east of Rheims. That Ludendorff will se? lect a sector unassailed hitherto in this campaign seems probable, which would place the chief attack somewhere be? tween Rheims and Verdun, with possi? ble subsidiary drives between Mont? didier and the Marne. Moving Forces Southward Recent Allied raids, of which there have been a great number, have shown the enemy holding their lines north \ of the Aisne very lightly. There have been indications of movement south? ward in the last fortnight. Political reasons dictate a German effort against Paris. Although events have disproved the frequent forecast of a renewal of the German attack, there seems no doubt that this time a great blow is imminent. Foch will not be caught napping, and the enemy will meet stiff obstacles, whatever road to Paris he selects. Because Ludendorff will attack re gardles-* of the initial cost, it is well to be prepared for enemy advances j during the first days. Either side is bound to win ground under the pres? ent system of offence and defence. The anxious question to both sides is i the developments after the first shock; ' to the Allies, whether they can find the "dead point" of the attack and check the whole movement; to the enemy, wnere they can exploit their ' initial success. Tanks are almost certain to play an important part in the new battle. The German system of attack consists of a short, heavy bombardment, then a quick thrust by storm troops in eche ion formation, machine and light field gu?ns being used to widen the salient, j Foe Using Big Tanks Recent fighting has shown the Ger? mans employing more tanks, great ponderous monsters, armed with heavy guns and clusters of machine guns. In the new attacks the enemy is likely to uncover many of these highly mo? bile batteries. Against them .will be pitted French mosquito tanks.sort of a David and Goliath combat, with, it is hoped, similar results. Germany lost many of her finest storm troops on the Somme, the Lys and the Maine; that is one reason why the enemy has been so slow in launch? ing his summer campaign. Ludendorff is certain to throw in his best at the outset, and the real test will come when the Allies encounter his second rate divisions, those needed to exploit the initial gains. Germany begins the new phase with markedly inferior oir force. Early in the battle the Allies' superiority is likely to become apparent. Britain has developed this branch of fighting amazingly in the last few months, while American airmen have advanced rapidly. The battle of Chemin des Dames be gan during the full moon, which is now in the first quarter. The May at? tack was planned to last only a few | clays, but the present gigantic strug? gle muy continue for a month. It is considered probable that enemy air end long range bombardments of Paris ' will be renewed as soon as the offen bive is in full swing. Without minimizing the seriousness of the situation, it can be stated posi? tively that the Allied high command regards the future with confidence.

American Wounded Begin Arriving at London Hospitals Most of Them Come In at Night and All Receive Best of Care Smoke in Ambulances! i Patients Visited Regularly by] Committee Formed of Women From U. S. LONDON, July 13.?American wound? ed are now arriving in London in con- ? siderable numbers from the sections of j France where the Americans are bri- ! gaded with the British. They reach ' the various main line stations on Brit- j ish hospital trains, together with the I hundreds of British wounded with ? which the trains are laden. The American soldiers are receiving i the best of care and are be\ng visited by American women members of a com? mittee formed to look after them as soon as the hospital authorities give their permission. Most of the Ameri? can cases arriving in London are classi- i fled as serious. About one-fourth of ! the men received their wounds while in the fightng line, the remainder be? ing accidents or sick case?. In the lat? ter category are a considerable num? ber of men who have pneumonia or appendicitis. At each Station a long line of British ambulances are lined up and they take away the men in rotation as they are detrained. The Americans take their turn with the rest and are transported j to whatever London hospital their par- ' ticular ambulance happens *to repre- \ sent. The automobile ambulances used j in London are of the latest type and usually accommodate four men. The soldiers often receive cigarettes : as they detrain and are permitted to smoke as they lie on the ambulance stretcher for a ride of ene to four miles from the railway station to the hospital. Most hospital trains irrive in Lon? don in the evening and the ambulances, with their brilliant headlights and roomy electric lighted interiors, are a i familiar sight in the London streets. ; The pedestrian catches a glimpse of the patients through the open rear of the ambulance and during the last few ? evenings it has been often possible to \ see American soldiers lying at the side of English, Australian and Canadian Tommies, all cheerfully smoking cigar? ettes. As soon as the American patients reach the hospital their pi rival is re? ported to the American Army Medical Service and to the American Red Cross. It is expected that as soon as the American authorities take o- er the two London hospitals which the American Red Cross recently announced were to be used exclusively for American wounded, most of these men will be transferred from the nospitals they are in at. present to a hospital which has a staff of American doctors and nurses. Two new American hospitals, located in the London suburbs, will be taken over within a fortnight.

"In the Chateau Thierry region from July 9 to 10 the German artillery was more than usually active and his infan? try nervously alert. His alertness re? sulted in the use of many flares during the night. His batteries were active in counter battery fW and in harassing fire on our positions in the front and rear. There was short concentration during the evening in the Voie, du Chatel region. Some gas, mainly of the sneezing and lachrymatory variety, was used.
