X ' WITH THE BRITISH FX FRANCE June 6 Jut aa events on the ground are shaping thenHelves fnr a final crash which will Inevitably decide the world's fate, so the aerJul offen sive Is dally waxing- fiercer. ' The mutual struggle for the air's mastery has scarcely ceased day or night. ' British airmen felled 336 German In less than three weeks up to June 2 of which 28 3 were totally destroyed. - 8omeilmes the agonized pilots Jump ed from the burning; planes In midair a.nd went whirling over and over, landing far from the machine' wreck. During- the same period' 536 tons of high explosives were dropped be hind the German lines. Feats Spectacular. The Zeebrugge mole, Bruges docks. railway stations and munitions works far Inside Germany have been attack ed and repeatedly set afire. On one day a boyish- British airman shot 34 Prusslons from the sky, dropping 59 tons of bombs on enemy military cen ters, going as far as Bruges, disdain Ing; , anti-aircraft shells bursting about, and swooping low and starting disastrous flrea along the waterfront. Next day the same raiders charged several German air fleets, demolishing ti crau. ine wrecss somersaulting to the ground. Klsewfrere they drop u ped S3' tons of high explosives, going aa far aa Karlsruhe where they bombed trains, stations and war work although ferociously attacked by German planes. The fighting Patrol so perfectly protected the bombing planea.that only one Brit isher was lost. These two exploits occurred May 20 and 31. June 1 I saw an air battle -resulting In. the downfall of 25 planes. The same night 27 tons of bombs were dropped on the Keebrugge mole. ; Allied Air Victory Near. - German warplanes are more dar ing. They bombed many towns and villages behind allied lines. Hospitals were the worst sufferers. Several hundred patients, doctors, SlHtara and attendants were killed outright nnd some burned alive. With the Am ericana the allies are now able to In crease rapidly the silled advantage In the sky. and airmen are confident the enemy will soon be completely outdone. BRITISH PRESS SAYS SUBMARINING WILL ' MEAN DETERMATION . LONDON", June . The - British press believes the submarine opera tions agxlnitt the coast were Intended to lure back Amerlcon destroyers and patrol boats from Kuropean wnters. btia are confident that result is not accompllHhed. The bombardment of American coast cities Is considered entirely pos sible. '. The first news ow the submarining was published here yesterday after noon. The express said: "IMrates have plenty of opportunity for mis chief in the western Atlantic. It is possible some American seaports will be bombarded. An extension ef the campaign will mean some loss, with certain retribution and hardening of American determination. America can protect herself and help us. too." The Graphic said, "This desperate search for victims Is & proof of the straits to which Germany Is reduced. A number of victims Is the result ol the" attacks being unexpected. Th United States Is now prepared."' Spence Re-elected Master of Grange; Policy Repudiated 8AL.EM. June . C. E.

Casualties fn the British ranks reported during the month of May reached a total of 166,802. The losses were divided as follows: Killed or died of wounds: officers 1,636; men 20,518. Wounded or miss ing: officers 6.182; men 138,566. British casualties reported week by week have recently been running near the 40,000 mark, evidently represent ing the losses sustained during the !inninS of the German offensive in March. The total reported during April was only 52,475, as the lists apparently did not begin to reflect fully the effects of the casualties sustained in resisting the German thrusts m Picardy and " t." w 1 Flanders until the beginning of May.
