Washington.—Official tables of the major buttle casualties of the Amer-. i*an forces in France, made pub lie February 1 by General March, chief of staff, slimy that approximately 10,- 000 men remain wholly unaccounted for nearly three months after the end ing of hostilities. The deaths, miss- ing ami known prisoners are tabulated up to January 10 for each of the thirty combatant divisions of General 1'ersliing's army. The total is #U,o02, °f whom 17,434 are classified as miss- ing or captured. An appended sinte- ment shows tliut only twenty-nine American military prisoners were be- lleved to lie still in Germany on Jun- nary S, and that 4NU0 prisoners had been checked up as returned and 118 died in captivity.

To that figure, also, must he added 1551 men of tiie marine brigade, figures for which, not carried in the laides, were obtained from officiai sources. This brings tiie grand aggregate of deaths from battle up to 40.709 on re turns estimated officially to lie 95 per cent complete. As figures on missing and prisoners of the marines are lack ing, the number of unaccounted for which finally will be added to the roll of tiie dead cannot lie accurately esti mated. The army tables, however, give a to tal of 14,619 men missing In action, and 2785 known prisoners, making up the 17,434 missing or captured. The army rolls record 4918 American military prisoners accounted for. Admittedly, there are many possibilities of error, but the statement says it is anticipated that the indicated unaccounted for list of 12,516 will be brought "down to less than 10,000."
