SHOOT DOWN RUN PLANE By Aaaoclated Pimm to The Review Wltk tha American Army in France, May Sl.—American aviators shot down down another German airplane today, pa the front northweet of Toul. It Ml within the American lines. Hy Associated Press to Ths Review With the American Army In France Thursday, May 30.—German airmen made a pretentious raid on the area behind the American lines ln Picardy lust night. Bombs were dropped on all sides of one of the largest hospitals in a town many miles to tbe rear ot the front. American and French wounded soldiers were carried to cellars and caves by American nurses and members of the Red Cross. Only a tew prisoners were Injured by flying glass as most ot the windows in the hospital had been shattered by bombs dropped the previous night- Several private houses were wrecked and a number of civilians including teveral babies were killed and Injured. That the raid was planned on a much larger scale than recent ones over thla territory ls evidenced from reports mada by many Americans in villages over which the raiders passed. Tbe Germane came in wave formation and then scattered widely. One squadron dropped bombs a few hundred faat trom an American fleld hospital and at the same time one of the long range guns shelled a village a few hundred yards away. The first alarm was sounded at 11 o'clock. The dropping of bombs and the firing of many anti-aircraft guns began Immediately. Later there was a brief pause after whtoh the raiders returned to remain almost until dawn. A new American evacuation hospital had been opened only yesterday in a certain village. A bomb fell ln front of It laat night and shattered windows, hat none ot the patients was injured. In some instances the bombs fell within 30 and 40 feet of a hospital building but fortunately there were no direct hits. A French nurse, her mother and two little slaters were killed jn a house a short distance from a hospital. Another nurse was standing on tha upper floor ot tne hospital nlnisterlng to patients when a piece of bomb struck her, piercing her lung. Five American nurses wera ln the tame hospital. Tbey were Miss Natalie Scott, of New Orleans; Miss Helen Spalding, of Brooklyn; Mies Mary McCadlish, ot Atlanta; Miss Blanche Gilbert, of Cleveland, and Miss Constance Cook, of San Francisco. While the raid was In progress they went about cheering the patients. Although many serious cases of slca and wounded were aggravated because they had to be moved, the nurses had ports. to carry them to the lower uoors and the cellar. "It was an exciting Ume," said Miss Scott, "but there was no panic- Some of our boys actually slept through lt all although their beds were showered with broken glass" Three American ambulances were caught in the raid. Sergeant Ethan Wells of San Francisco who was driving the' first ambulance said: "Our three ambulances were hurrying to hospitals with patients when a bomb wrecked a building directly In front of us in a narrow street. Our ambulance was perforated by flying missiles. We were all hurled out but escaped wltb a few scratches." Private Robert A. Bowman, of Galveston, who was ih the same car said: "There was a terrific explosion. The next thing I knew I was lying on the ground. I looked around and heard the patients groaning. I pulled myself together and found the patients uninjured except for the shock. Our ambulance was shot to pieces." The second car apparently received the full force of the explosion and was wrecked completely. Private Roscoe Wiley of Madison- ville, Texas, was driving the third car. Sergeant J. W. Nolder, of Altoona, Pa., and three patients were with him. "There was wreckage all around us," said Sergeant Nolder. "Injured civilians In the shattered house nearby vara**begging for help.

The Germans are nearing the Marne and the Paris- Chalons railway, which ls the main communication between Paris and Verdun. Although the pace of the German advance has slackened owing to the arrival of the allted reserves, it is recognised tbat the allies have a difficult task to prevent further development of the menacing enemy success. Correspondents say the retreat over the Aisne was a most difficult feat of warfare, both as regards calm generalship and the courage of the troops. The ground was repeatedly defended to the last man. Officers were seen holding the bridges to tbe last moment and were then killed when they blew them up- 300,000 Men To Be Called To The Colors Daring June They Will Be Ordered to Report June 24, Says Official Statement—Quotas by States and Places of Assignment Are Not Yet Determined—Depend Upon Rate of Shipment to France. . , BRITISH CASUALTIES By Associated Presa4f The Review London, England, May 31— Casu- (BY ASSOCIATED PRESS TO THE REVIEW.)

They will be ordered to report June 24, but it haa not been determined to what camps they can be assigned so the list of apportionments is for the present being withheld. The quota is based on estimates of the space available for the men in camps and cantonments. If the rate of shipment of troops across again is raised still more men may be called. In any event the probabilities are that enough men will be called for special service to round the number out to 300,000. total of 166,802. The losses were dmdod as follows: -Killed or died of wounds—Offlcera 1,536; men 20,618. m_ Wounded or missing—Officers 6,- f-2; men 188,666. British casualties reported week by week have recently been running near the 40,000 mark evidently representing the losses sustained during the heavy fighting that started with the banning of the German offensive In March. The total reported during April was only 83,475 as the lists apparently did not begin to reflect tally the effects of the casualties sustained in resisting the Germafc thrusts ln Picardy and Flanders until tbe beginning of M?.y.

(BY ASSOCIATED PRESS TO THB REVIEW.) Keeping the tide of their advance In the center flowing strongly, although seemingly less swiftly, toward the Marne, the Gennans simultaneously have executed a stroke on the allied left flank that has extended the battle line westward and virtually linked up thc present battle field with that of the Somme. The attack was delivered along the Ailette nver, northwest of Soissons. Sweeping forward in the salient that projected between the Somme and Aisne battle fields, the Germans drove the allied line bsck so thst it now runs northwestward from the vicinity of Soissons, through Epagny and Blerancourt to .the Oise river, apparently at its point of junction with the Oise canal about eight-miles east of Noyon. " ■ ■ Ji___ The Noyon area was included within thd field of the German offensive in March when the French established new lines along the Oise aad the Oise cirial to the east and southwest of that town after being driven back below St. Quentin. The German drive down the Oise valley toward Paris was then checked. The present offensive movement here suggests the possibility of itt resumption. The advance in the center has now brought the Germans within two miles of the Marne at one point, Paris dispatches report. The wedge here appears increasingly narrow, however, and on its flanks below Soissons' and Rheims the enemy is reported firmly held. The French war office announces the breaking down of enemy attacks in the Soissons area and to the south, while on the allied right the line extending northeastward toward Rheims from the neighborhood of Vezilly appears virtually unchanged, the Germans failing in all their efforts to win ground. ...... . The energetic defense on the right wing is exemplified by the fighting at.Thillos, three miles east of Rheims, where the Germans entered the town only to be driven out by a French counter attack. By such resistance the safety of Rheims is momentarily sajeguarded, but observers of the operations view its ultimate fall as apparently inevitable. . • . , . , , . The probability of German penetration right up to the banks of the* Marne ia the center of the advance is likewise indicated in the newa dispatches, which mention the near approach of tha Germans to Chateau-Thierry and Dorpians, both of which towns are on the Marne 'river. The civilian population has left Chatcau-Thiarty and some of the refugees from it have already passed through Paris for the ulterior. On the British front the Germans are active with their artillery east of Amiens and in the Albert region to the north as well as on portions of the Flandera front, but no infantry movements of note are reported. In the Toul sector on the French front the Americans have carried out a successful raid. Baffled In their efforta to strike eastward and westward from the new salient in the allied Unes, the Germans are attempUng to reach the Marne with their heavy forces before the allies' resistance becomes strong enough to bait them entirely. Ia ths center, however, the enemy progress ls slackening as the allied reserves are being thrown Into the battle. Heavy fighting continues all along ttS arc-shapetd salient from Soissons to Rbeims. Struggle as they will against the French defense on the WMt around Soissons the Germans are unable to gala Ia the region of Rbeims tte same story Is true as tbe British and French divisions there stand firm. ,. By penetrating to the Marne or southward from Fere En Tardenols. seven miles north of the river which they now bold the Germans, apparently hope to spread out eastward and westward, as they failed to do further north and thus outflank the strong allied positions at Soissons sad St Rheims. French resistance in tte eenter, however, is growing ln strength and the Germans are getting farther aad farther away from their olginal base along the Ailette- Paris and London view tbe situation more favorably and in neither capital Is there fear thM the Gernmn offensive will become as serious a menace to the allied defense as tbe original onslaught ln March. Although the German salient is about 11 miles deep at the center, Paris ls aot much nearer nor has the enemy's advance yet affected tta allied Uaes eastward trom Montdidier. ttl fact, the Germans would be in a dangerous position should Gen. Foch strike eaatward along the Aisne. This, may be tt*. purpose of tte allied strategy ia holding strongly en the flanks as tte Germans get deeper sad deeper into the pocket toward tbe Marne.
