Present Drive As Decisive Foch Expected to Break Enemy's Effectiveness for All Time Germans Led Into A Fatal Blunder Counter Attack Elsewhere Seen as LudendorfFs Only Hope PARIS, July 19. The liveliest ad? miration is expressed in competent circles over Thursday's feat of arms, and every credit is given the officers ??ho carried out the attack. Military critics are deeply impressed by the assault as bring further and finer proof of General Foch's mar? vellous handling of his troops through? out the year's campaign. He has so husbanded his forces that while con? tinuously fighting defensive battles he always has found men with which to rieal a counter stroke at the right place atid a! the right moment. Usually, it is declared, the generalissimo has sur? prised the Germans, who had under? estimated 'he French reserves. Military commentators aiT unani? mous m calling the Franco-American advance a line success. Dut deprecate jumping to conclusions, as the battle i:- still going on. Henri Bi.lou says the fact that the German reserves intended to support '.he defensive of July 15 have rushed to the rescue of General von Boehm makes the continuation of the enemy drive toward Fpernay difficult. "What will the enemy do?" adds Ridou. "Wir. he attempt to continue the offensive man?uvre southward while defending himself on the west, oi will he, dt the other hand, slacken his hold? Will he attempt a counter man?uvre? We have arrived at the moment whrr the manipulation of the French divisions is going to be de cisive, and in that game we may believe that the last word has not been said." Colonel do Thomasson writes that common prudence dictated that Gen oral Ludendorff should keep forces in reserve to pr.rry a thrust on the right flank. By the resistance which the French meet, he adds, it. will be known if this elementary precaution was taken. It may be asked, ho concludes. the infatuation which seized I.ucien liorfT after a long series cf successes has not led him to make fatal blunders. Reviews of the lighting printed by ?ho Taris papers lay stre-s upon the interference with the enemy's railway iinimunications occasioned by the speedy Allied advance. "Our progress southwest of Sois? sons," says the "Echo de Paris," "pre? vented the enemy from bringing into notion his reserves over the railways ?n the vicinity of Laon, near Chateau Thierry, around Rheims ant ?long the Aisne. He had expected to secure groat results from the use of th-so reserves." In its .description of yesterday's action between the Aisne and the I Marne the "Petit Journal" Bays: "An advance was realized on the entire 4o-kilomctre front of the attack of between five and ten kilometres. Between the Aisne and tha Ourcq the advance of three kilometres by Genera] Mangin's army, reported in yesterday's official statement, Was completed within one hour. U. 5. Cruiser San Diego Sunk Off Fire island Continued from page 1 causing intense oxcitiment among the villages within radius of the sound. Residents believe generally that the San Diego encountered enemy raiders ??arly in the morning and was torpe doe?l after a sharp engagement. A dispatch from Washington stated that information from reliable sources indicated that a submarine flotilla is operating off the port of New York. Rumors that the San Diego had collided with another ship or struck a mine were discounted. ("oast guard patrols sighted a sub? marine olf Fire Island between 10 anil 10:30 a. ni., according to persistent re? ports at Bayshore. A hall' hour later the guns were heard. Cause Not Stated i Telegraphic reports from Washing ! ton failed to determine the cause of ', the vessel's sinking. The Navy De? partment earlier in the day issued this !' statement : ? "The Navy Department has received ? reports from the 3d Naval District stating that the U. S. S. San Diego was ; sunk ten miles southeast of Fire Isl? and at 11:30 o'clock this morning. One officer anil two boat's crews were landed at Life Saving Station 81, on Long Island. Other survivors are in boats, and four steamers arc stand? ing by. "So far as it can be ascertained there appears to have been no loss of life. The cause of the sinking has not yet been ascertained." Resident? of Point of Woods, on the ! south shore of Long Island, said an : aviator had landed there with a story of hundreds of sailors struggling in the water as he circled overhead. The aviator telegraphed to the wireless sta? tion at Sayville. ana a S O S call sent a half dozen vessels to the scone of the disaster. Thirty sailors, one lieutenant and one ensign made Fire Island in life? boats, landing at a point about eight miles from Point of Woods. Telephone communication with shore has been taken over by government officials, and civilian residents were unable to learn ; the story of the survivors. Explosions at Sea Heard Citizens of Bay Shore and Babylon heard explosions at sea early in the morning, which were described as sounding like heavy gunfire. The fact that submarines have been expected off the coast was made known by or? ders issued to masters of coastwise vessels within the last few days, warn? ing them to steer as close to shore as I safety permitted. All the boats at the naval training : station at Sayville were sent across Great South Bay to Fire Island Beach, according to a report. It was under ? stood that these boats had been as? signed to transfer rescued survivors from the island to the mainland. None had returned last night.

S?*,tl?nA?*nd the headquarters of the I bird District for information were all referred to Washington. Measures to deal with n new U-boat ri.id were said to have been O ken promptly by naval and military officers. Flotillas of destroyers an 1 putrofcboats were reported to be scouring the waters in the vicinity of New York Harbor. Lrter in the day airplanes joined in the extending search. Airmen Hunt for U-Boats When the first news or the disaster reached the aviation field at Hemp stead, the student fliers stampeded for the hangars. Every available machine was manned, and the squadron pro? ceeded across Long Island ami turned out to sea in a hunt both for survivors and lurking submarines. A thick mist bung over the ocean nil day, adding to the difficulties of the rescuers. i The members of all the boat crews at ' the Fire Island and Oak Island coast i guard stations put to sea early in the I afternoon, and none had returned, at a i late hour last night. The men were said to be assisting in the transfer and j rescue of sailors from the sunken ship. | It. was reported in marine circles that wireless call;-, for help had been | picked up by coastwise steamers, and all within radius proceeded at full speed toward the point where the ves I sel sunk, which was located definitely j a short distance off Cherry Grove. Hundreds Rescued The crews ?if incoming vessels de | clared later in the day that they had passed rescue shins at sea with hun ! dreds of survivors aboard. Several ! tankers and one naval vessel were de ! clared to have joined tiie searching j flotilla. One tanker reached Quaran ; tine late last night, but the survivors ! were not landed. A return of the undersea raiders has not been unexpected. The sink? ings in May and June had forewarned t)ie navy against the possibiity of fu? ture attacks. The sinking of a war vessel, however, had not been antici? pated. The San Diego is the first major naval vessel the nation has lost since the beginning of the war. Nothing but coastwise vessels were victims of the submarine flotilla that visited Ameri? can waters earlier in the year, and only destroyers and submarines have been successfully attacked in the war -/.ones. The vessel itself is not regarded as a serious military loss, and naval of? ficers were more concerned about the probable casualty list. Preparations have been made at the United States Base Hospital at Fox I Hills, Staten Island, to receive wounded | men. The authorities there were not | certain whether these belonged to the j crew of the San Diego, although it was '? considered highly probable. Firing Preceded Explosions In elaborating on the story of the ; tiring they had heard off shore resi ! dents of Bay Shore stated that there j had been a few shots at first, and later ? a series of heavy explosions, as though a vessel were blowing up. There was silence for several hours, and then the firing broke out again. This continued all of the afternoon and into the evening, and indicated that patrol ! boats may have brought a submarine i to bay. Outside ?if the firing a veil of mys | tery concealed the events that were ; taking place at sea. The story told I the villagers by the aviator who" flew ?over the scene of the sinking, how? ever, was reported by credible vvit ? nesses. The aviator was flying along the \ coast when his attention was attract? ed by the report of guns. He turned ?off his course in the direction of the ! sounds and a few miles off shore found himself hovering over a naval ves? sel which was awash with the waves and on the point of settling. Ile wheeled above in the air for a while in an fffort to make out some point of land through the fog that would help him in marking down the exact location of the sinking shin. n the meanwhile the vessel went under. and the aviator later described the scene below him of sailors flounder? ing in the water and clinging to boats and life rafts. He turned back to shore and came down in an open field in the outskirts t of the village of Point o' Woods. A? j soon as he had telegraphed his news tc i the nearby wireless station he left the village and his identity was not ascer* i tained. Several residents declared the avia* ! tor had told them of sighting a sub | marine on his return trip to land. The San Diego served for many year.? | as the flagship of the Pacific fleet. Sh< j and other craft of her type have beer ' used in convoy work, although classi? fied as of no servie' in fleet manoeuvres She carried an armored bell, fore anc aft extending above and below th%( water line. This belt was five inches : thick. The armament consisted ?>f foui i 8-inch guns, fourteen li-inch guns an? I eighteen .'-1-inch rapid lirers. Her cos' ; is estimated at $5,341,754. U-boats appeared east of Cape Rac? j a week ago, sank the schooner Manx ? man and unsuccessfully attacked othei I vessels. It is believed that these sub ! marines continue to lurk in America! ! waters. The San Diego was southward bourn i from the Portsmouth (N. II.) Navj i Yard when she was sunk, running he: I course in near the shore. She wai commanded by Captain H. II. Christ; and had a compliment of 51 officers 1,030 enlisted men and 63 marines. Th? vessel formerly was the California, bu was rechristened when the dread nought of that name was launched 1 She was an old type vessel, laid dowr : in 1902, and was not equipped with tin ! newer devices of protection agains ; submarines. Her speed was twer.ty-tW' i knots. San Diego Colors, Saved by Survivor, Cheered by Crowe By William J. Carver POINT 0'WOODS, Long Island, Jul; 19. The first men to reach shore fron the cruiser San Diego, sunk ten mile off the coast and nearly opposite thi place, landed here at 3:15 o'clock thi: afternoon. They rowed ashore in tw< lifeboat:. Many of them were nearly naked none more than half clothed. One car ried a bundle, held tightly beneath his arm. As the lifeboat grounded on th? sandy beach he was the first to sprinf into the water and stagger up beyon? the reach of the surf. Then, while willing hands were help ing his companions from the two smal boats, he slowly unwrapped the bundf and shook out into the breeze the color of the San Diego. The effect was mag netic. Many of the sailors, as it was learnei later, had been in the water for hour before being dragged into the boats All were tired, hungry and thirsty Many could scarcely stand. Yet, a sight of the strip of bunting, ever; man stiffened to attention, and anothe instant, faifrlv shattered the air with i cheer?half exultant, half d?liant. For an instant, theirs were the onlj voices heard. Then the several hun dred summer visitors who live, eithe at the hotel or the cottages, took U] the shout. Another instant and thi sailor reverently folded the flog, and with an ensign at his siile, led thi handful of survivors up the beach, t\\< by two. and singing "The Star-Spangle? Banner"' as they marched. Thirty-five Men Reach Shore Thirty-five men in all came ashore Six were officers, the others member! of the crew. They had started aheai of the other boats to make the ncares point of laml and give the first com THE CRUISER SAN DIEGO SCENE OF THE SAN DIEGO'S SINKING ', p?ete tidings of the disaster, as well as ; ! to summon aid for their companions. Their arrival had been anticipated by the suminer Folk. Shortly after 11 o'clock *he sound of firing and one tre? mendous explosion had given ample warning that, something unusual was taking place off shore. All through the rest of the day the shore was lined with members of the summer colony. Most of them had no other aid in their eager scanning of the sea than the shade they secured from a hand over their eyes. Some few, however, had binoculars. And it was these who first gave word that far out on the ocean were two small boats headed here. As the two lifeboats broke into the surf and dropped down into a roller one moment', only to be lifted hirrh the next, on" wild shout- of encouragement after another >>'reeted the men pulling at the oars. Scores rushed out well into the surf to meet the incoming boats. As the keel of one and then the other grated on the sand eager hands laid hold and rushed them h ?ich up on the beach. Food Awaits Sailors Most of til? men were wet to the -skin. Those on shore whipped off coats and sweaters to wrap around them. Up at the hotel big pots of coffee and huge piles of sandwiches had been prepared at the first word of the approaching boats. Escorted by practically the entire summer colony, the thirty-live survivors went to the hole!. There, fitted out with warm, dry clothing am! still car? rying sandwiches in their hands, the men asked for the telegraph office. Their lirst thought was to get a mes? sage off to their homes. Hundreds on the San Diego were naval reserve men, only recently as? signed to the ship. Many came froir California. Despite the willingness of the mer to tell what they could of the loss o the San Diego, it was clear that thej had only a partial knowledge of th'i events that had taken place themselves : Of one thing they were certain a sub marine had sunk their ship. Several of the men declared they hai seen the U-boat. Two of them, mem bers of a gun crew, declared they ha? shot at it, and one was certain he ha. seen at least one direct hit scored. The officers, however, were not cer tain whether it had been a torpedo o a mine which accounted for their ves sel. They said that the huge cloud o smoke which spread out over the wate an instant after the explosion made i I almost impossible to tell what had sent the ship down. Although they had only a brief mo? ment to sense the extent of the disaster. the men this, afternoon expr?s:-?"?! the opinion that at least three hundred of their companions had been lost. They waited around the telegraph office and the telephone most: of the afternoon, anxious for definite word. Discipline Is Perfect Discipline on the boat, every man agreed, had been perfect. They were making ready for the shore leave that had just been grante?! them at the moment of the explosion. Some were shaving, some, bathing, most only half dressed and all planning just how they were going to spend the free hours in town. Then came the explosion. The San Diego floated for at least fifteen minu?s after the explosion. Every one of the 1,114 members of the crew had dashed to their posts within a few seconds after the shock. They stayed there until ordered into the boat,s. The gun crews were the last to leave the ship, and some of -hem were forced to dive into the sea, so fast did the big cruiser go down during the last min? utes it remained afloat. Many of the sailors stood at their positions along the decks until they became flush with the water, and then camly stepped off and swam until picked up by the boats which had been launched in perfect order and without a hitch. All through the afternoon (ho two lifeboats layed side by side on the beach. The sailors were hurried t> the hotel ?id the cottages and mai'e as com? fortable as possible. Hack from the men to the boats and the.i back again tn the hotel, the summer visitors wan? dered in an endless procoision. Hour after hour every pair of bi? noculars in this place swept the sea, the owner of each eager to be the first to ?liscover the next boat that came in. No more arrived, however, through the afternoon, but the watch? ers were rewarded along toward the middle of the afternoon by the sight of live tankers which swept past the shore line in single file, the decks of two of them crowded with white-clad sailors believed beyond doubt to have been other survivors from the war? ship. As the afternoon wore on and word came that hey were to be taken on Hoard a navy patrol the men, with the people here, spent the time in watch? ing the seaplanes and dirigibles which phot out to sea to lend a hand at res Men 's Genuine Mohair Suits Black and White Stripes, Blue and Whfle Stripes, Plain Black and Grey Mixtures For these hot days $ For Coat and Trousers.

Oil Skip Thought Submarine Victim; Oil Barrels Found SEABRIGHT, N. .1., July 19.- Indica? tions that the German submarine or submarines again a* work on the American coast may have bagged an oil ship among their other game be? came apparent to-day when trawlers, out for blue fish, ran across numerous barrels of crude petroleum at sea. Andrew ,J. Applegate and his son Howard picked up several barrels of oil to the southward of Ambrose Chan? nel lightship. About the same time other trawlers reported having ?een quantities of oil on the waters about the fishing grounds. Practically the entire trawling fleet at o?ee abandoned the blue fish hunt? ing to salvage oil. British Transport Barunga Torpedoed And Sunk by U-Boat LONDON, July If..The British transport Barunga has been sunk by a submarine, the Admiralty announced this afternoon. There were no casual? ties. The text of the Admiralty statement reads: "The transport Barunga, formerly the German steamship Sumatra, out? ward bound for Australia with unfit Australians on board, was torpedoec and sunk by a German submarine or Monday. There were no casualties." Torpedo Sinks Carpathia Off Irish Coast Five on Transport Killed, but Crew Escapes and Lands in Safety Rescued Passengers in Titanic Disaster Vessel, Returning From Trip With U. S. Troops, Is Victim of U-Boat AN ATLANTIC PORT, July 1!).?The British transport Carpathia, bound westward, was sunk off the Irish coast some time last night by a U-boat. Five men who were in the engine room when the torpedo struck the ship were killed. All others on board escaped in lifeboats and landed at the nearest port. Three torpedoes in all were fired at the Carpathia and all found their mark. Despite the fact that the ship sank rapidly excellent discipline prevailed and. so far as is known now, not one single accident marked the lowering of the lifeboats and the abandonment of the ship. The Carpathia, which was of 13,603 tons gross, helonged to the Cunard Line. Prior to the war she was en gagcil in the transatlantic service, but was taken over by the British govern? ment immediately on the outbreak of the war and has done transport duty ver since. Lsed to Carry Troops From the time this government be . , ii Die big rush of men across the ocean the Carpathia had been one of the ships to u* valiant service. Her last departure from an Arherican port was late in June. The Carpathia was built in 1903. From the time she made her first trip across the Atlantic the liner enjoyed wide popularity among ocean travel? lers. This feeling became one of gen? uine affection for the ship following i the sinkrng of the Titanic. The Carpathia, 100 miles away, m | answer to the calls for help sent out i by the sinking Titanic, rushed through | fog, mist and storm in an ocean ?filled with icebergs to the side of the sinking vessel. In all, she rescued 806 persons from the Titanic. A few days later thT survivors were landed in New York, and since that day the names of Carpathia and Arthur Henry Rostron. her commander, have been known in more out-of-the-way places than those of any other ship and navigator ef the mercantile marine. Honors Paid Sailors Britain and the United States united in showering honors on Captain Ros | tron and his crew. Medals and loving j cups were numerous. Then he and the old Cunardcr resumeil their trips to and from the Mediterranean, until i he left the vessel for another post. When the war began the Carpathia, like all other vessels of the British | lines, became a munition ship and transport. Since this country joined th?' Entente she has been almost ex-' clusively a troopship, and little had been heard of her until the news of the torpedoing came yesterday. Numbers of times she has escaped U-boat attacks. In March, 1915, a terrific gale encountered off New York tollowed her through an entire voyage and laid her on her beam ends several times. Captain William Prothero, hep commander on this occasion, said it was the worst storm he had ever en? countered. Hero Is Modest The last heard of tfie Carpathia. prior to yesterday, was on November 12, 1916, when she went aground off Ambrosi: Lightship and remained for a few hours stuck in the mud. Of Captain Rostron hut littie lias been heard *;inco the time of the Ti? tanic disaster. He was the wearer of live medals, including one from Con? gress, before he left his berth as com? mander of the Carpathia. In his own eyes he was no hero and declared t'iat most heroes were "accidents of fate." "No man is a hero of his own voli? tion," he explained. "But every man Half day to-day! Rogers Peet Company Broadway Broadway at 13th St "The at 34th St. Four Broadway Corners" Fifth Ave. at Warren at 41st St. has the power to live up to the best of his manhood and duty." I 215 Are Rescued The survivors number 215. Some who have been landed say the vesse. was sunk by a German Submarine at about 9:15 o'clock Wednesday morning. All of the passengers and crew were saved, with the exception of three fire? men and two trimmer?;, who- are sup? posed to have been killed by an ex? plosion in the engine room. Members of the crew say that just after the passengers had breakfasted a torpedo struck the vessel slightly for? ward of the engine room, and a minute or two later a second torpedo crashed into the engine room. There was no panic. Passengers and the surviving members of the crew trot away in the ship's small boats without difficulty. For a time it appeared as though the Carpathia might remain afloat, but the U-boat came to the surface and fired h third torpedo. The liner tilled rapidly. and sank about two hours after being struck by the first torpedo. After her disappearance the submarine ap? proached the Carpathian boats, hut did not fire on them. Sixteen Ships Sunk By U-Boats in June In Atlantic Raid Gorman U-boats paid their first visit to the Ani'-rican coast at the beginning of June. The first word of their oper? ations was received on June :i. Their raiding began some days before that, it was learned eventually. Before the submarines ' ft thecoast. cither to return to Germany or to scuttle away to some hidden base o". this side of the Atlant c, they sank sixteen ships m all ? six steamers and eight schooners. AM hut two of the vessels wer.- American. Although there is .till some doubt of the actual number of U-boats par? ticipating in that raid on American shipping, it is generally believed there were tw >. At any rate, the U-37 and the U-r-51 were sighted on at least one occasion, cruising together, and ! no reports were ever verified to lead i to the belief that more than those two ventured to show themselves in these waters. The first definite news of the pres? ence of U-boats off the coast cane to Xew York late Mon-.!-.--, on,June :i, when the captain and part of I le crew of tin? schooner Edward 'i. Cole, told of the sinking of their day before while off Atlantic City. The submarines crui : [or hundred miles up and down the coast, sinking their ?. ctims each time by gun-fire. Not once during their raid ing were they reported to have used a torpedo. The victims of the fir * l boat raid were chiefly small trading schooners. The largust vessels sent down faj the raiders were the Carolina, of the Porto Kic-.n line; the Herb?_>rt L. Pratt, ;>. tanker, and the British freighter Har pathian.
