HERALDED OFFENSIVE
(Continued from Page One)
on the Aisne, according to the official
statement issued tonight.
"In the battle regions in Flanders,
on the Lys battlefield, and on both
sides of the Somme and Avre, artil-
lery fighting has become more in-
tense"
(By The Associated Press)
Artillery Pounds Entire Line
Germany's great offensive on the
western front has been resumed.
With only brief artillery preparation,
two. blows have been struck by the
Teuton army, which has been re-or-
ganized since disastrous losses were
inflicted on them by the French and
the British during the Picardy and
Flanders battles in March and April.
One attack was on the line from
Voormezeele to Locre, southwest of
Ypres; the other on a 35-mile front
from Pinon, north of Soissons, to
Rheims. This is known as the Aisne
sector.
In Flanders, the Germans have
gained virtually nothing, but further
south, the Berlin official statement
says the German crown prince's
troops have carried the whole ridge
of the Chemin des Dames, and are
now fighting on the Aisne river. The
German attack in Flanders is against
positions taken up by the French on
May 20, when they recaptured Bru-
loose and Locre, and strengthened
their line on each side of Hill 44,
which they had retaken a few days
before.
Fierce Battle Waging at Amiens
On the Amiens front the present
battle recalls the fearful fighting of
last summer along the Chemin des
Dames, where for weeks, the <Ger-
mali crown prince hurled his men
against the French positions, only to
see them crushed and beaten. Last
year 75 divisions were engaged in
German attacks along this line alone.
The attack here is really in the na-
ture of a line straightening opera-
tion. It is being launched from Laon,
at the center, and is aimed at the
elbow in the line, formed during the
fightingrin the Picardy in March
and April.
Foch Knew Position of Blow
Evidence that the Allied supreme
command was forewarned of the new
German attack may be found in the
fact that British troops are fighting
there. Up to the present, it has been
believed that British forces did not
hold positions much south of the
Somme, east of Amiens. The German
crown prince is in command in this
sector, and this may indicate a seri-
ous effort to break the Allied line.
Crown Prince Ruppreeht, of Bavaria,
a phenomenal commander, and the
German crown prince, for dynastic
reasons, will strive to outdo what-
ever success was obtained by their
colleague of the north.
It is probable that American troops
are engaged in the fighting in both of
the battles on the French front. It is
known that the American troops are
close behind the Allied lines in Flan-
ders, while some time ago it was re-
ported that they were near Rheims.

Late official reports note quite se-
vere fighting in various sectors,
among them the Atremont forest,
where Americans are known to be
holding portions of the present line.
The reports say that the Germans
were repulsed from these attacks.
It is officially reported from
Washington that American positions
in the Picardy sector have been sub-
jected to attack, and that at places
the Germans penetrated them. The
enemy, however, was driven out by
the Americans.
Airmen Use New "Multipli Camera"
London, May 27.-A new "multiple
camera" with which Allied airmen
are now equipped is a development of
motion picture cameras. An airplane
observer can take thousands of pho-
tographs at the rate of one a second.
In this way it is possible to map
the German lines with precision.
Each camera is capable of 750 expos-
ures with a single loading. The turn-
ing of the film for the new exposure
is accomplished automatically.
Need Architects for Civil Service
Government officials are at last
realizing the need of architects in the
carrying on of the war, according to
notices received recently by the arch-
itectural college. In the announce-
ment of the next civil service examin-
ation, men skilled in architectural.
branches are offered positions rang-
ing from that of junior draftsman at
$1,200 a year, to skilled architects at
$2,500 to $3,500.

Alumni Features
in flay Inlander
That the alumni of the University
have indeed circled the globe is in
part told by the literary contributions
to the "Alumni" number of the In-
lander, which appears today. Our
own state is well represented by
Maude Caldwell Perry, '96, Elmer
Adams, "08, Leonard Lawson Cline,
'13, who is now on the Detroit News,
and Prof. J. Raleigh Nelson, '94.
There are further contributions

from Louisville, Ky.; Gertrude Buck,
'94, from Poughkeepsie, N . Y., head

college; and Muriel Tyson Parsons,
'16, from Bath, Maine, who is still
vivid in memory as of distinguished
poetic gifts.

ously great. Poetic variation ranges

"Advertisingh s a Vocationdfor
Women" is the topic of an address
to be given by Hazel Whitaker, '06,
this afternoon at Newberry hall. Miss
-Whitaker, who is at present employed
in the advertising department of the
Hudson company, has had experience
as a teacher, social service worker,
and, as correspondent on the Chicago
Tribune, and is therefore particular-
ly well qualified to present the possi-
bilities for women in her chosen field
as contrasted to the usual lines open
to them.
Work and salaries in the advertis-
ing field are particularly attractive,
Miss Whitaker asserts, and she be-
lieves it to be one of the best pro-
fessions open to women today. All
University women interested in this
work either as a permanent occupa-
tion or for temporary work during
vacation axe urged to attend the lec-
ture.
Alien Wonien to Register Soon"
Registration for alien women will
take place June 17 to 23, according to
Chief of Police Thomas O'Brien. As
yet none of the forms for registra-
tion have been received at the local
police station, where the registration
will take place, but definite instruc-
tions are expected within a few days,
when they will be made public.
It is not expected that the registra-
tion of alien women from the Univer-
sity will be heavy. The possibility
that there are a greater number of
foreign women on the campus than
men is slight, as there were only
three men from the University regis-
tering under the former alien regis-
tration lav.
