Along with Other Allied Troops
They Are Pushing Germans
Very Hard.
PARIS. July 1.?11.63 p. in.?The
French have retaken the Thlaumont
work, according to the olflclal stalement
Issued by Ihe war ofllce tonight.
The text of the communication follows:
"North and south of the Somme,

"In the morning and during the
course of the afternoon along Ihe en

gained possession of the llcrmaii first
line positions.
"North of the Homme the French

approaches to the village of Hardecourt
and In the outskirts of Ihe village

"South of Homme the villages of

"The number of unbounded German

which regular officers would be
assigned to aid in the training of

with the mobilization of 100,000

In Congress the Senate military
committee prepnred to Increase by
probably more than $100,000,000 the
army appropriation bill as it passed
the House. The committee how has
approved an Increase totaling $75,000,000.
It Is expected the $18 2.000,000
measure passed by the House
"will reach a total of more than $300,.
000,000 when reported to the Senate.
Some Items Added.
Among items added today, were
$13,000,000 for the army aviation
service, Includiug provisions for
equipping twelve national guard aviation
squadrons; $1,04 5,100 for the
. signal corps, $12,200,000 for national
guard field artillery and ammunition;
... _ $4,586,000 for machine guns; $1,.
000,000 for armored motor cars and
" ' $5 ,000,000 for ordnance stores.
"We expect these figures will stagger
some members of Congress,"said
Senator Chamberlain, chairman of
the committee, "hut we are going to
put the responsibility for adequate
military preparedness squarely upon
Congress. The national guard, as
. has been demonstrated in the last
few days, needs equipment. We are
going to show Congress in these figures
what must be appropriated to
put it in proper shape."
Paces Another Angle.
In the House, the appropriation
committee faced another angle of the
Mexican trouble.
Secretary Lansing called for an additional
1300,000 to get Americans
out of Mexico.
"The conditions are such at the
^-present time," the secretary said in a
;. memorandum dated June 28. which
accompanied the estimate, "that in
j; my opinion it is highly desirable that
! every American citizen should leave
; Mexico at the earliest practicable
? moment. The appropriation made
heretofore by Congress for assisting
i Americans in th nt of Mexican
!; trouble Is exhale; and urge that
; the amount aboi tloned be cx:
pedltcd as much i dble."
Emergency .unites.
;; From Secretary link. there came
" an estimate of ft,643. - to meet
emergencies on tin- bot h r. The
- ".money is needed to buy equipment for
-_?the national guard ranging from machine
gunB to engineer inn oents.
A Item of S450,000 is for the purchase

long awaited British offensive on the
west front finally lias begun. Tho
earlier activity of tho British had a
more or less "feeling out" character
and left it uncertain whether General
fir Douglass Hague was In earnest
or merely endeavoring to hold tho
German forces on liis front. But today,
it is fairly apparent that tho

speaks of heavy artillery tire, gas

as preliminaries to strong reconnaisancec
in force along the AngloFrench

were everywhere repulsed.
There is no uneasiness manifest,
