Paris, March 2 8—Military experts declare that the vaunted "Hindenburg line" is likely to be turned shortly, compelling the Teuton high command to make another "strategic retreat." Gen. Nivelle is following up today, with unparalleled swiftness, the bril liantly planned stroke by which his storming· troope occupied Coucy-le Cbateau and opened the point of a second wedge toward Laon, the other being north of La Fere, where the French crossed the Oise and the St. Quentin Canal in force. To the north and south of St. Quentin, the heart of the "Hinden burg line/' the Allies are driving for ward irresistibly, and have cut two of the four main railroads which feed the city, the third being well within range of ther guns, leaving the Ger mans but one to bring up supplies for their hard-pressed armies. General Nivelle was driving his wedge with sledge hammer blows against the Germans today north of LaFere, and at the same time, by hot pursuit, forging another such wedge thrusting at Laon.. The most bitter fighting of the advance and the re treat so far is centering around the point of this second wedge near St. Gobain forest. On the British front the fighting was still open as opposed to the masses of men now coming to grip on the French sectors. The British are steadily forging ahead cavalry and armored cars, incessantly har raseing retreating Germans. Weather conditions continue the main obsta cle to swifter progress. Use Armored Cars WILLIAM PHILIP SIMMS (United Press Staff Correspondent) With the British Armies Afield, March 28:—For the first time since the fighting in Belgium since the be ginning of the war, armored cars supported by cavalry achieved the capture of a town today. The village was Bovelles. The armored cars supported on the north and south by British cavalry swept ■over the Germans. The enemy fled, not having expected more than a clash with small advanced, force·. êperlal bu OtMed ^ Berlin, Mar.

Governor Edge, addressing the may ors and representatives of large and small municipalities today at the con ference called by him to prepare the communities to meet any wi emer gency that may arise, reiter <1 his f^^Kr dèclaratton that whirt is most tlonetl Guard. This, the executive told the congress, is tile most press, η g want of the hour. The second most important need is the organization in each municipal unit of the state of reserve corps of older able-bodied men on the ratio of at least I one for every three policemen, men I who will sign their names to an agree ment mustering them in at any time for home guard duty. New Jersey's third paramount neces sity at this critical time, Governor Edge stated, is to find out what the ί industries of the state can offer in the I way of clothing and other supplies, fori troops he stated that yesterday the state purchased 10,000 shoes at a cost of $40,000. "We would like to know," said the executive, "just what we can depend upon from the industries,of New Jer sey, especially in the way of equipment and the kind of prices we can get in buying the supplies." Speaking in a general way. the gov ernor said that two regiments have been called to the colors and another( would probably be ordered to inobil-j ize in a few hours.

PRESIDENT ACTS 1 TO PUT NAVY III FIGHTING SHAPE Asks Congress That Navy be Raised to lOO.OOOMen— Has Five Plans to Accom plish This—Col. House Ar rives to See the President. Special by United 1'rene Wire. Washington, March 28-—President Wilson has taken all the steps within his power to bring the navy to its maximum man strength for the pres ent. He has asked congress that it be raised to 100,000 men. He still has several ways open wherein he can bring the land forces to greater strength, though specula tion is that he will get his main in crease by acting for volunteers or by having congress pass a compulsory training lawr. The means, whereby the larger army could be obtained are: Increase of flic militia from 150,000 men to full war .strength, 450,000. Increase of the army from 120,000 to war strengtLu 170,000 by bringing company units to their entire quota. IncreaM? of the army by add ing at onee all the annual im provement's designated by the last army bill. This would give 270, , UOO in all. C all For Volunteers. Have congress pass a universal ι service measure whieli would I probably be shaped to furnish 500,000 youths. Military men say that as plans are now shaping the war department is considering its enlargement measures on the idea that the "bitterest strug gle this nation has ever known may be our part.*' These men say the country ought not to be misguided in its views that real war—and not merely police work —must sooner or later be the portion of the big force that will probably be demanded of congress next week. Colonel House at White House. With the arrival of Colonel Ε. M. House, at the White House, the ballet son is rapidlv whIwag!·! Into shape and has called in his per sonal friend and adviser to go over pome of the details of it. It promises to be the longest address the President has ever delivered to congress. In addition to outlining the course of events which have led up to the present situation with Germany the President will recommend immediate passage of legislation which failed to get through the last congress. Revenue legislation will occupy an important part of his address. ïtcady *Y>r Mexico Trouble. While realizing· possibilities of trou ble from Germans gathering: in Mex ico, authorities said today the govern ment is prepared adequately to cope with that situation. Sporadic outbreaks and border raids are the most to be guarded, against. Indications are against any real military danger. Reports to the government show conclusively that a great many Germans have been and still are fleeing to Mexico. Reports In dicate concentration at Toi reon, but all this flight does not mean that they are preparing to light this country; many are fleeing in fear of internment here. Insofar as authorities reveal there is no disposition on General Carran za's part to heed German machina tions and plunge his people into any conflict with the United States. Many of the German workers are being" sent out of the Tampico oil re gions for fear that they will do dam age to the properties, which are Great Britain's main source of supply for her fleet. A separate executive department of the government, to be headed by an added cabinet member, would be cre ated to assume sole charge of this country's aviation service, if a bill which Representative Caldwell, New York, will introduce next week, passes congress. Under Caldwell's plan the aerial service of the United States would be made the greatest in the world. What Will Stone ΓΚ>? Special by United Press Wire. Washington, March 28—Specula tion is rife as to what will be the atti tude of Senator Stone an any warlike move asked of congress. Reports here today are that Stone will fight openly and bitterly against any more war like moves than have already been taken against Germany. Whether he will go so far as he did on the armed ship resolution and abandon his ?ommittee leadership to Senator Hitchcock, is producing a lot of spec ulation. Talk today is that the House will show itself more ready to do the President's bidding than the senate. Meantime the House foreign affaire ?ommittee is working on state of war resolution, which it plans to int roduce immediately. FIRST CLASS LU IV CM SERVED MADISON CRIL.L ». M. 35c.
