Germans Do Not Understand Frenchman's
Belief Is Now Common Among the Allies
That the Hlndenburg Line Will
Not Help the Germans Hold Their
Ground In France and Belgium.
Philadelphia l>-dger.
Paris, September 5.?The belief is
growing daily that the Allies now have
the Germans on the run ^nd that not (
even the Hindcnburg nne can sunthem
from a general retreat before
many weeks have passed. As paris
sees Jt the enemy high command is
now showing astounding incapacity to
meet any of the blows Koch is showerS
ing upon them at one point after an[other
along his front. Opinion here is
[ puzzled to find the reason why the
{(ierinan general staff, which for more
than forty years has boasted that it
alone knew all the secrets of modern
strategy, now stands openly confessed ,
as helpless lo offer any reply to the Allied
Seven weeks ago yesterday, after
four great offensives all of which had
proved surprisingly successful, the
tlermans believed they had I'arts within
their grasp and were within easy
distance ol a tier man peace. They
were convinced that both the French
.and the British were powerless to of- ,
fer further effective resistance. Two
days later Koch astounded them by
taking the offensive between the Alsne
and the .Maine, soundly beating the
huge army of nearly half a million
men, who Mlrvril they hud only to go
forward and Wither the fruits of their
previous vietories jand wrenching the
initiative of the whole campaign from
the enemy.
The Germans themselves confess
Koch's success is a mystery to them.
Week after week they have the pillars
of their defensive line fall one after
another?Soissons, Albert. Montdidier,
l-tssigny. itoye, Chaulnes. Noyon. ltaItauine,
Crolselles. I'eronne, and now
Queant, the landmark and symbol of
their idolized Hindenburg line.
High Command Loses Reputation.
After this unythlng Is jiossible. In
French opinion the tacit admission of
the German high command that it Is
powerless to devise any means to hold
up victorious Allies marks the grave of
the reputations of both Hindenburg
and Ludendorff. These specialists of
the eastern front have shown by practical
experience extending over many
weeks on the western front, where
something finer is required than mere
ability to drive a battering ram, they
art- hopelessly outclassed in brain
liower by the sui>erior genius of Koch.
Hopes are running high here that
' the magnificent British victory at Quennt
will have a speedy effect on the
whole German line further south. It
is regarded as inevitable that the ene1
my annles fighting on the front of St.
C^uentine and Izifere must precipitate
' their retreat under peril of being
placed in extreme danger now that the
pivot of their whole line to the west
of Catnbrai is so seriously menaced.
Alarwitz's army east of I'eronne is already
in serious difficulties, while
1 Mangin's army, which has already
y1?!"'! cs the Oloc ftbeut <nld I
way between L&urerc and Noyon, is
ulso a serious factor the retreating
Hermans have to reckon with,
i The role of Mangin is becoming
; more important daily. His left on the
i (?ise evidently intended to support the
right of Humbert's men. who are driving
hack the enemy on La fere and St.
, guentin and to threaten the (icrman
communications with the rear by way
' of Chnuny-Torgnier road, which must
; now l>e well under tire of our guns.
: The enemy obviously realized the danger
in this quarter some time ago and
massed substantial forces in the country
between Councy and Tergnier, ineluding
many of his best troops. In
this direction the enemy had every opportunity
to attempt a counter maneuver.
This did not escape the eye of
Mangin. who promptly took the initiative
himself and upset all prospects the
enemy may have had of developing
any operations of a diversion.
Foe Ha? No Co-ordinated Plan.
The more the struggle develops the
more opinion here is convinced that
the enemy, in addition to having lost
the initiative, is now losing a good deal
of the enormous benetlt he derived
from the unity of command he always
enjoyed since the beginning of the
war. The present entire absence of
any apparent co-ordinated plan of the
enemy is regarded here as indicating
that Ludendorff is no longer personally
directing the retreat, but is leaving
matters more and more to chiefs of
the various individual armies. This is
tion of the general reserves has deprived
the German commands of its
best reason for intervention in the detailed
conduct of the struggle.
During the last few days the question
has been raised here In certain
quarters whether the apparent helplessness
of the enemy on the Somme
front may not be due to some effort he
may be making to form a large urtny
to take the offensive on another part
of the front. The possibility of this,
however, is generally scouted, and for
several reasons it is pointed out that
the fierceness of the fighting at many
points and particularly the frequent
counter-attacks, is evidence that the
Germans are not voluntarily giving
way. but are being beaten fairly and
squarely everywhere. Further, the
enemy is so completely mastered by
the Foch tactics that he dare not reduce
the number of his troops, even in
the quiet sectors, as he is utterly in
the dork as to where the next blow
may be struck or whether it will come
from the French or the. British.
It is felt here that American factors
have already proved much more embarrassing
to the Germans than has
hitherto been realized by the Allies.
The fact that the British and French
are sustaining virtually the whole burden
of the present operations only
adds to the puzzlement of the enemy,
who cannot fail to see in this careful '
husbanding of so much splendid American
man-power a terrible menace to '
their whole future.
The role reserved for the American
army is one of the most frequent sub- '
jeets of speculation here. It says 1
much for the change which has of late
months come over the public, however,
that there is now no apparent desire to '
urge that any particular plan should
lie adopted. Everybody evinces the
most perfect confidence in Foch and
Clemenceau and is satisfied that the
secret Allied plans are safe in their '

itt-atl of the 6.000,000 pesos allotted to
he Philippines as th? quota for the
hird Liberty Loan, the islands subscribed
10.000.000 pesos. Commenting

Sufferers Must Have Prompt Attention
at Hospital.
American soldiers suffering from
shell shock are r.ow hurried in the
shortest possible time to a base hospital
established here for the special
treatment of such cases, says an associated
Press correspondent writing
from Lorraine. The element of time
is regarded by the specialists attached
to this hospital as r. prime importance.
Kfforts are made to deliver such cases
to the hospital within for^y-eight
hours after the first symptoms develop.
A special ambulance service has
been organized for that purpose. Once
here the shocked soldier remains until
treatment of his case is finished.
If the nervous trouble of the patient
results from concussions or front the
strain of service, it is curable here. If
it is not curable, it is because the case
was not brought here soon enough or
hwnnap it hiui il chronic foundation be
fore the patient went in*o the army.
Nervous symptoms resembling what
has been culled shell shock have devclo|ied
under the simple strain of sT-rvice
in soldiers who have never heard
a shell explode.
Base hospital 117 treats both these
aspects of war neurosis and only according
to the highest standards of
neurological science. Hypnosis is seldom
used. No dangerous experiments
are allowed and isolation is not followed
excepting the single ward routine.
The patients are kept together and the
nurses :.re kept with them, giving the r
company us well as their experlen.vd
care, and both are a part of the cure
The patients themselves when they
have recovered sufficiently become exofficio
members of the staff; they cooperate
with the doctors and nurses
in helping the other boys out of their
muddled condition of mind and their
unsteady state of nerves.
The most obvious part of the treatment
Is the use of tools or instruments
of sport. A shaking hand that is unable
to retain anything in it gradually
steadies with patient gripping
exercise and this method has the advantage
pf occupying, .. Jja-tPind. Vhlle
it re-educates the hand.
One boy whose head and hands were
shaking constantly was seen weaving
things out of dyed ends of string on a
loom made for him out of odds and
ends of lumber by other patients.

obtaining through practice he is gaining
control of his nerves and will be
cured in a few days. A machine shop
with turning laths, a tailoring shop
and the ambulance garage furnish
occupation to many.
All cases of palsy and paralysis resulting
from concussion are cured here
when taken in time. A boy who was
brought in with a paralyzed leg is now
walking around the grounds, after a
week of treatment. Defects of speech
are the most difficult cases; the treatment
is longer and requires greater
pain, but they yield to it finally.
Why Guynemer Wore His Medals.?

His answer was, "If I do this it is

Industries Named That Are Essential
to tbe War.
Four Classes of Industry Indicated In
the Order of Their Relative Importance
As Being More Necessary Than
Other Industries.
Washington, September S.?A new
priorities list of industries and interests
essential to the war or the civil
population was announced today n>
Chairman Ha rue h, of the war industries
hoard. It was described as the
master key" governing the issuance
of priority certificates by the priorities
commissioners of the board for
fuel supply or electrical energy, transportation,
material facilities, capital,
and labor and as the basis of industrial
exemption from the draft.
"The inclusion of the industries and
plants on this preference list." said the
announcement, "does not operate as an
embargo against all others, but the effect
is to defer the requirements of all
other industries and plants until the
requirements of those on the preference
list shall have been satisfied."
Industries have been grouped into
four classes according to their relative
importance. So distinction, however,
has been made between any of the industries
or plants within any one class
and it was explained that no significance
is to be attached to the ordei
in which they are listed within an>
class. The industries or plants under
Class 1 are of exceptional importanci
and include those most vital to thr
prosecution of the war. and the public
and their requirements must Ik- fully
met in preference to those of the three
remaining classes.
Residences In Class 1.
Fuel for domestic consumption?residences,
apartment houses, restaurants
and hotels?is in Class 1. In thai
class also are food, railways operate*
l?y the railroad administration, th?
army and navy, aircraft, ships and
shipyards, war chemical plants, coa
mines and byproduct coke plants, cor
tain public utilities, ordnance am
small arms plants, and aininunitioi
and explosives.
Requirements of those grouped un
der Classes 2, 3 and 4 will be gives
priority over those not on the preference
list, but as between these thre<
lasses, there is no complete or absolute
preference provided. Relative iin
l>ortance of the industries and plant!
within each group will be the basis o
Kach plant listed in the three las
I classes will be required to file with thi

Masgln Has All CooflieBce Id the
Americas Soldiers.
German Prisoners Appear Reluctant to
Fight Americana, Saying That They
Would Rather Surrender?All Germans
Are Not That Way, However.
Chas. H. Urasty in Philadelphia I>*d
Paris, France, September 5.?A
corner of the (treat battle toward
which all eyes are turned is the sector
where the Tenth French army under
General Mangin is making a systematic
and well-manned effort to bore its
way to the rear of the German position
further east of the Vesle and the Aisne.
French military science is all for outflanking
tactics as against a front assault,
so costly in huinun lives.
American troops are holding the
enemy on the Vesle. The line there
swifigs back and forth from one side
to the other of the river. Those changes
ot a kilometer or two have no significance.
It is in the neighborhood of
Juvigny on the flank of the German
' salient that it will be decided whethei
the Germans can retire from the area
north of that strong position or whether
they can hold it.
i 1 spent Sunday near Juvigny. In
the morning I drove to General Mangin's
headquarters and met the commander,
whose name and fame have
become so well-known in America
in these last few weeks. Some of our
finest troops, including the Second Division,
belonged to Mangln's command
between the Oureq and the Vesle.
Tti 1 ? V.,. .... that nt
niM repuiuuuii is c<?ji>ucit -..?v v.
a hard hitter, and I expected to find
a personality upon which aggressive*
nt'ss is plainly stumped, instead I found
? a man somewhat under medium height,
[ with pale face and very quiet in mun1
ner. The cantrast between his char'
acter, as one sees him and his energy
' and boldness in the held adds inter
est to his general personality.
Mangin's Message to U. S.
i 1 told him that the fact that so nuiny
of our troops had served in his army,
and had won such fine success under
i his leadership had made his name fa
miliar in America, and I asked him if
e he would give ijie a message of some
- kind to send across the Atlantic.
"Yes, he said, "say this for me. It
9 is easy to lead Americans to victory,
f In fact, they take their general with
them as upon the on-rushing tide."
t 1 think General Mangln would have
b liked to pursue the subject, but geni
erals must be careful not to say too
9 much for publication. General Mans
gin's experience with the Americans
i has made him thoroughly familiar
with material, and when the high command
placed in his hands the lancc
for the thrust at the Germans north of
1 the Aisne, he promptly put u sharp
] American tip on it.
Our party arrived rather early at the
1 headquarters, but another party, driv1
ing from i'aris, had been there three
i, hours ahead ol? us. In it was includi
ed Premier Clemenceau and he paid
5 his visit to General Mangin at 7:30 in
. the morning. Like his breed in his
1 native jungle, the Tiger keeps early
. hours.
i, We drove through rolling country
. which recall the rich uplands of the
. Missouri valley, like Salina and LeI,
fayette counties, Missouri. There was
r a scar here and there, but war had not
. .spread its characteristic devastation
. and the harvests looked excellent. We
r could feel autumn In the air, and one
. of our party observed "The frost will
. soon be on the pumpkin." '
Guns Like Silly Geese.
' At the Alsne we ran Into war ruin
again. We passed hundreds of captured
German guns standing on the
streets and in the squares, looking for
s ull the world like silly geese with their
noses pointed uselessly upward.
Our objective was the headquarters
of the American troops and we found
them in the weirdest place imagin~
able, the description of which I omit,
! lest the rules he violated, though the
Germans know where it is and pop
' away at it with their artillery.
Our visit was timed at a busy moment.
Our well-served artillery had
j been smothering the Hoche and pro(
tecling our own advance around Juvtgny,
all of which has already been cabled
to you. What perhaps will appear elaborate
Is the steady stream of Ger1
man prisoners being brought in from
? this action, and of whom I had an op
portunity to see something.
p The American troops in this sector
' include many who speak German, and
the prisoners talk to them in their own
language and more freely. The large
r bag was made up entirely of men who
1 voluntarily and, from a military viewB
joint, needlessly surrendered. One lot
^ said that their officers had one by one
p disappeared "to attend a conference"
J somewhere behind. They didn't see
the use of going on without officers, so
r they came across into our lines- It is
p doubtful if many German companies,
1 without officers to club and pistol
s them into fighting, could now resist
1 the temptation to follow the example
" of those trooDS.
y Don't Want to Fight Americans.

- lately regarding the American sola
dlers in a different light, and count
1 on good treatment if they surrender.
% Some even announced that they were
i, unwilling to fight Americans. Several
. said they wanted to make their homes
; in America when the war is over,
r I was struck by the appearence of
. the prisoners. Their faces were dull
* and their eyes lightless. They seemed
f scarcely human beings, but onlv
1 "dumb, driven cattle." Among the
early prisoners I had noticed a pretty
good physical standard and uniformity
j of type. But these were a regular
printing office sorts box.
As I examined them I felt sure that
such men could not long be depended
, on to maintain the struggle against
I the Allies. Later, when I made this
observation to an American headquar,
ters officer, he said:
"It won't do to generalize from what
r you have seen. Those prisoners are
' after experiences that would depress
even our men, and appearances may
, be deceptive-"
t in with American soldiers from
a section where the ?i? riuu:i-Am< Sinn
, element is strong. 1 wouldn't .'!!
these youths German-Americans, for
there wasn't a trace of "kultur" in
them. If their forebears -.-ver had any
( of it, it has all been bred out, which
is the greatest glory of our political
and social system. We take the newcomer
in, and he becomes part of us. J
