Vi'Hh the American Army in France,
June 27.
In a lull between storms, the Amer
ican army Is preparing to play a much
larger and much more Important part
in military operations against future
' German drives toward Paris. The
longer the Germans postpone the next
flghfthe larger our part In It will he.
Up to this time American soldiers
have appeared on the front In one or
two divisions. "With the large growth
of the United States man-power In
France, It is but natural for the time
to come when our facilities will en
able us to place larger units in the
front lines, s time passes more and
Wore American soldiers complcto
training with the French and British
and reach a stage where they can hold
positions unaided. This Increase In
man-power and in the number of
trained soldiers Is making it possible
for us to work toward a stage where
General Pershing can place an Im
portant force before the Germans in
actual combats.
In the present situation we have
reached but a milestone toward ulti
mate accomplishments by tho Amerl
can military machine, but nevertheless
It Is fair to say that our strength has
reached the stage toward which .our
military leaders have been working
for the last year. American soldiers !
did noble work In stopping (ho Ger
mans at tvo important strategic posi
tions in the last drive namety, at
Chateau-Thierry and northwest of
Chateau-Thierry. bothplaces guarding
approaches to tho French capital.
' Will Have to Pcfent Ynnkrcn
For obvious reasons I cannot state
where tho larger American force will
be located, but suffice It now to say
that the Germans cannot get much closer
to Paris without defeating a consider
able American army. Deelopments of
momentous Import to the American
people are taking place In Trance these
days. Because of the limitations of
censorship and for good military rea
sons, they cannot be revealed until the
Germans have cognizance of them, which
they will have before they completo
many more drives at- Paris.
I can say that, as a military factor,
we have cast off our swaddling clothes
and that we have passed tho stage where
the small American force needed a wet
nurse. The American force that will
aoon be In active military operation will
bei In a position .to 'Stage an all-american
show If the boche runs Into their
positions.
It Is understood, of course, that Gen
eral Foch commands the Allied armies.
Under him are army group commanders,
under them are army commanders, under
army commanders are corps commanders
and under corps commanders aro divi
sion commanders. If a single American
division is serving In a French corps It
Is under the command of tho French
corps commander. If an American corps
Is serving In tho French army It Is
under command of tho French army
commander. If an American army Is
serving in a French army group It Is
under tho French army group com
mander. An American unit, if company
or regiment, or brigade or division or
army. Is under Its own commander for
that unit, who In turn Is under the
'French commander of the next larger
technical unit
Will Get Higher Command.
The reader may thus understand that
the larger the force of Americans fight
ing together, of course, the higher up
the American command goes and tho
more credli' or discredit redounds to
America for the record that force makes.
In line with this exposition it may be
stated that before long America may
hear of the naming of American offi
cers to command larger units than have
- heretofore functioned In France.
America has plans of her own for
ultimate participation in the war. These
plans are perfectly well known to the
other Allies. It never was supposed
that American smaller units were to be
used always to fill gaps. But tho pres
ent policy of tho Germans to force the
issue in the war this summer has made
It necessary for the full available
strength of the Allies to be used to
block the enemy where he makes hln
. drives. He will be held, and Americans
will help hold him.
After the enemy has worn himself out
with this summer's drives, and his
frenzy- ls stayed, then will come a
greater opportunity for the fruition of
America's destined role in. the world
war. That role Is not to hold the Ger
mans on their line in France. It Is
something far different.
But while our aid Is needed to hold:
the Germans, trance and England will
get 'that aid.

NO JOBS IN FLEET OFFICE
Thirty Thousand Applications for
Positions on Hand
Confronted by approximately 30.00U
applicants for positions in the Emergency
I'leet Corporation, Howard Coonley, vice
president of the corporation, In complete
charge during the absence of Director
General Schwab, let It be known today
that there are no more vacancies and
that he cannot possibly hope to place
one-tejih of tbo applicants, many of
whomTiap comn long distance to apply.
When the fleet corporation transferred
Its offices from Washington to Philadel
phia, 35 per cent of the personnel re
mained Intact. A few new places were
created by the transfer, all of which
have been filled The organization now
numbers about 2900 persons.
Jlr. Coonley said that through 'the re
cent resignation of J. M Goodell, In
charge of the personnel division, a false
impression had gotten out that more
workers were needed Mr Ooodell's
resignation was accepted with keen
regret, he said It was brought about by
the fact that Mr. Goodell had promised
U W Page, head of the United States
Bureau of rubllc Roads, to Join his or
ganization when he was needed, and had
felt ohllged to make good his pledge. Mr.
noodell's successor has not been chosen.
Until a successor Is named, George Oiler
Is directing this work.
Vice President Coonley made it clear
that both skilled and unskilled labor still
can find places In the shipyards.

DOG LICENSE RUSH KEEPS UP
Registrars Are Swamped and Sup
ply of Tags Runs Out
The rush for dog. licenses continued to
swamp tho attendants at the various
places of registration today.
Women came with small poodles In
their arms, while small boys were
dragged along at tho end of chains or
ropes attached to some huge animal.
Very few of those, registering their
dogs today received license tags, the
shortage of which was felt during the
first day's registration. Manufacturers,
owing to tho shortage of metal and
labor, have been unable to fill tho city's
order, but in the nbsence of tags cer
tificates aro being lsfQed which will Im
mediately bring the release of tho stray
"purp" that happens into tho net of, the
dogcatchers.
City officials expect to receive another
shipment of tngs within a short time
and they will bo mailed to dog owners
Immediately. In the meantime, persons
are urged to keep their llcenso certifi
cates close at hand In case the official
dogcatcher wishes to see It.

London, June 27.
The Kaiser was furious when he
learned of Chancellor von Hertllng's
speech to the Itelchstag and Immediately
pent him a severe telegram, said a Cen
tral News dispatch from 'Amsterdam
today
Qerman politics hae been boiling
since the speeches of the Chancellor and
the Foreign Secretary have become pub
lic The Amsterdam correspondent of the
1"hange Telegraph states that the
Kaiser has given his consent to Dr. on
Kuehlmann to resign as Foreign Secre
tary since he has Incurred the enmity
of General on Ludendorft
The Deutsche Zeltung prints .warm
comment of Von Kuehlmann's speech,
calling him a "defeatist, a traitor and
an ally of the International socialists."
The German nolitical situation has
been further enlivened by a strong at-
acK against the latest speech of the
Kaiser by Doctor Haase in the Reichs
tag This Independent Socialist leader
charged Austria with starting the war
with Germany's approval and ridiculed
Von Kuehlmann's statement that mutual
commence Is necessary to peace negotia
tions "There Is no piragraph of the "Brest-I-ltosk
peace Pact that has not been
broken," declared Doctor Haase "Tur
keys action In invading the Caucasus
was unlawful and attempts to annex
Esthonla and Livonia were contrary to
the treaty "
Doctor Haase then attacked the mili
tary party, saying-
The militarists are supreme Von
Hertllng and Von Kuehlmann are merely
ng ieaves in order that the m lltarv
party leaders shall not show themselves
in their entire nakedness. Why not
create a clean government and make
the chancellor the real goernor of .tha
state, Instead of Von Ludendorft?"
Another Exchange Telegraph dispatch
quoted Vorwaerts (the organ of the
German Socialist party) as saying:
We boclallsts want a government
that will adhere to Von Kuehlmann's
speech. What we a're doomed to get.
however. Is another Mlchaells, perhaps."

cellor )

KUEHLMANN SLATED
TO GO FOR ADDRESS
Wnftliingtnn. .Time 27.
Herr von Kuehlmann, German Foreign
Minister, is slated for letiremcnt as a
result of his Monday speech In the
Reichstag, according to authoritative
cables to French officials here today.
Kuehlmann's qualifying .peech on
Tuesday, In which he attempted to re
Interpret his earlier remarks, widened
the breach and antagonized both the
Liberals and Junkers, the report states.
In his second appearance Kuehlmann
excused himself "pitifully;" the cables
stated, "for his appeal to the good will
o" England and for having doubted the
ultimate triumph of German arms."
Kuehlmann declared that the ruling
party in liermany was tho military, and
that it was very desirable that the sltu
ntlon he cleared by Ludendorft coming
forward and assuming the responsibility
now resting upon the Foreign Minister
"It has been saW." Kuehlmann Is
quoted as saying, "that monev Is the
ruling motive of the English. This war
has shown that homage to the golden
calf Is as ardent In our country as hi
England and 'America."
Commenting upon the submarine war
fare and America's participation, he
sain:
"We were told that victory would be
ours by January, 1017. When the sub
marine warfare was begun, Herr Helf
ferlch assured us that America would
not take an active part. Admiral von
Capelle promised their results would be
nil. There are 700,000 Americans In
France. The submarine has not Im
peded their progress."
The Russian situation also came in
for a resume In Kuehlmann's second
speech, and tha present policy was criti
cized.
"The Flemish movement In which we
placed faith Is a pure swindle," he
declared, "the situation In Esthonla and
Livonia under our occupation Is deplor
able. That Is what is called liberation
of smaller peoples from Russian oppres
sion. If the Russian peoples rise again
It will be a life or death struggle be
tween Germany and them."
Kuehlmann's play to tho Pan-Germans
by declaring that "military success is
the only condition on which to baso
dlnlotnatlc relations" failed to hae the
desired result, while his ambiguous posi
tion further served to convince the Lib
erals of their Insincerity, the cables say.
