Washington. — Five fully equipped
American armies in Europe is the as
tonishing prospect disclosed to the
House military committee by Gen.
March, chief of the United States
army staff.
The greater part of these armies
will go to France, hut It is pointed
out at the War Department that if
Austria, Turkey and Germany should
determine to die in the trenches, some
of the American field armies will be
found on the Italo-Austrian and the
Macedonian front
Secretary of War Baker, speaking
some time ago about the desire to
help Italy, stated that there-would be
no limit to the assistance as soon as
the circumstances warranted the dis
path of forces to her consistent with
her demands»
Specflically Gen. March stated that
there would be in existence by July I,
1919, an army of 4,800,000 men, aud
he has, therefore, stated that a field
army consists of approximately 1,000,
000 men. There are, he said, 3,200.000
men "under arms," of which nearly
one and three-quarters millions are in
Gen. March's plan is to have called
to the colors between now ana next
July 2,700,000 men, which, added to
the 3,200,000 now under arms, will
make a grand total, with all allow
ances for casualties and rejections, of
4,800,000. It is believed by officers
that with the constantly increasing
monthly figures of laying down the
troops in Europe the whole number
of the draft necessary to raise the
2,700,000 will be in Europe on various
fronts by the middle of July. The tre
mendous number of Americans to be
under arms in Europe will make it
necesary to further classify the total
into "groups of field armies," which
is the next and highest possible clas
Simultaneously with Gen. March's
statements to the House committee
the War Department issued a state
ment which calls for a great expan
sion in the air service. The magnifi
cent programme of Gen. March is evi
dently based on the proper equipment
of every arm of the service and an.
unlimited number of planes of all
binds is necessary to complete the ef
fectiveness of the American troops in
the field. It was doubtless due to the
needs of the colossal army to cross
the seas by July 1 or next year that
the air service has made arrange
ments to fill its ranks with men from
all classes of the draft
Bishop To France.
Boston. — The Rev. Dr. Edwin H.
Hughes, resident bishop of the Meth
odist Episcopal church, left here ior
an Atlantic port and will sail for
France within a few days. He will
establish headquarters in Paris and
will have direct charge of Metnodist
chaplains at the front.
Mere Colleges Selected.
Washington. — Twenty-two addi
tional colleges have been authorised
by the War Department to organise
units of the Students' Army Training
Corps in October. Among them are:
Southwest Texas State Normal
School, Texas; Union University.

Toronto. — When his machine
caught fire while flying more than 10,

Cadet Henry C. Saunders was burned
to death.
Mere Nurses Needed.
Washington. — Denial of recently
published reports that the nursing
needs of the army had been met was
made by Brigadier General Charles
Richard, acting surgeon general, who
said that 26,000 nurses must be ob
tained before the end of the year.

London. — The British have gained
ground in the neighborhood of Holuo.a
village, north of St. Quentin, accord
ing to Field Marshal Haig's report.
A German post west of La Bassec
was captured. New posts were estab
lished northeast of Neuve Chapelle
and in the neighborhood of Ploeg
Another small but important bulge'
of the Ypres salient into German ter
ritory was forced by the British
troops when they attacked on a front
of 2,000 yards along the Menin road
and drove back the Germans for a
distance of 600 yards. This advance
carried Field Marshal Haig's men
within a mile of Hooge,' which figured
In many fierce conflicts in previous
fighting. Further south the British
at the same time pushed northeast
ward of Ploegsteert and established
posts 200 yards in advance of the ci 2
line which they had occupied before
the German drive began in March.
This was the third consecutive day
of fine weather and the battlefields
are rapidly drying out
British troops m the past 24 hours
have ceptured 1,301 Germans. There
is plenty of evidence that the enemy
is expecting further concerted attacks
at various places. A captured order
points out that the allies must now
be expected to strike heavy blows and
bewails the lack of assault troops as
rendering any prospect of successful
counter-attacks or effective resistance
Prisoners recently captured say that
every effort hah been made to sup
press all news of tbr American suc
cess at St. Mihiel, concerning which
alarming rumors prevail. The gen
eral impression seems to be that the
American victory has been so over
whelming that the German army com
mand does not dare admits the facts.
The text of the statement reads:
"Our troops made progress in the
direction of Le Verguier, nortnwest
of SL Quentin.
"We improved our positions slight
ly and during the night northwest of
Hulluch (between Lens and La Bas
see) and northwest of Neuve Cha
pelle (Flanders front).''
