TMERICANS IN FRANCE. Tours, Central France, Sept. 1— (Correspondence of The Associated Press)—Along the railway routes and the great national highways of France one sees mile after mile of the new telegraph and telephone lines set up by the American army, with squads of linemen in khaki stringing the wires and laying out new lines. The tele graph offices all through the war zones are crowded with khaki-uni formed operators and a personnel of American officers and enlisted men. It is one of the extensive systems suddenly installed on a huge scale with the coming of the Americans, spreading a vast wire network over all France and realizing government operation of telegraph and telephones on foreign soil even before it was un der way on home soil. This military nerve system is not alone telegraph and telephone lines, but cable lines across the channel so that American headquarters in France can be in immediate inter course with American officials in Lon don; wireless receiving and sending plants for detecting enemy exchanges and carrying on our own radio work; couriers and dispatch riders; weath er observers to warn when storms may impede military operations and all those modern methods of rapid communication which have become in dispensable to warfare. It is a complete linking together of the army front and rear, headquar ters, staff and line, keeping the com _ . .11 l manning onicers in cunauun wuui with every division and every other branch in the huge field of operations. The movement of troops and the ac tual fighting of battles are largely dependent on this highly developed army communication, which not only joins our own army but keeps up the liason of a vast united command. It is something over 500 miles from the French coast to the battle line in eastern France, and through out this distance there is a ompletc system of 10 and 20-wire American telegraph lines, linking the seaports with the front and also spreading through the vast ramification of ware houses, camps, hospitals, construc tion shops and military establish ments of all sort extending from the ports inland to the firing line. There is another multiple line run ning southward toward the Mediter ranean and over to the Spanish fron tier. These are the trunk lines, extend ing clear across France and, besides these main arteries, every division and branch of the army has its own telegraph and telephone lines keeping up constant intercouurse with head quarters. In every area occupied by the army along the front a complete system of lines runs back to switch 1 r- 11 ' "" " '" T Quality Goods ■= - """" a Our longtime of customers attest to the splendid quality of goods to be found at this drug store, and that they are in creasing in numbers is also evidence that service, added to quality is highly appreciated.

On the frst day of the big battle above Chateau-Thierry when the Americans began their famous drive, there were 27,000 messages averaging over 60 words each—all the way from an extended report on an operation to a short sharp order or some new move in the swiftly-moving drama. Within six weeks, since the Ameri cans had got into action, the commun ication between front and rear had quadrupled, and six weeks ago had quadrupled over the service on April 1 when the American activities were beginning to get in motion. I The culmination of the great battle late in July stirred into intense ac tivty every branch of communeation, with orders flying to hospitals, sup ply centers, ordanance works, and to the trading and rest camps for the steady movement forward of fresh troops.
