PARIS, Sept. course of the fighting on the western front contin- ues to show day after day that Marshal Is practicing-'his -precept "the whole'art of war consists in attack- with telling effect on the enemy. As Henry Bidou points out in the Journal Des Debats, the battle of the Marne is being reproduced with the positions reversed. Six German armies are recoiling, closely pressed by seven or eight allied armies, as was the case with the allied forces four years ago. The allied armies form the arc of a circle enclosing the Germans and, just as in the Marne battle, the fight rages, now on the center and now on one or the other wing. -Each move-is made with such skill and decisiveness that Its effect is felt, in every part of the line. At present Gen. Mangin is having innings, while the British have been resting on their laurels for a brief period and -preparing for a further blow.

Transportation of United States troops In France has been highly or- ganlzed by Col. Samuel M. Felton, i who has returned home and reported I that the situation is eminently satis- i factory. Gen. -March told the commit- i tee. Representative Shallenberger, of Nebraska, called attention to reports of a shortage of planes and said the public should know the truth. March replied that all reports, includ- ing Gen. Pershing's confidential mes- sages, indicated that there was no shortage whatever. Gen. March said the advance of the allied forces continued tb be entirely satisfactory and that the reports from all sources regarding the situation were of an encouraging nature.______ Final action was taken by the board of education in monthly ses- sion last evening to transfer the posi- tion of school nurse to the board of health, with the nurse department funds 'on hand. This is in accord- ance with a recommendation made in a report of the committee on sani- tation and health March 7, 1918, Dr. Wilson, formerly of hlcago, as has been stated, has been engaged as assistant health officer. He has been her for some weeks and it is his in- tention, with the co-operation of the healt'h .board, to give Racine a. de- partment equal to that in Kenosha.. The committee on i sanitation and health. In its report to (.he board of education last night, stated that ow- ing to the fact that the board of health has employed physician who will give all of his time to the work planning to employ sufficient nurses to obtain satisfactory results, it re- commended that the board turn over to said board such school nurse de- partment fun'ds as are still on hand, and also the school nurse and offer such co-operation as will make the work in the schools a success. In the future the city council will. no; doubt, appropv'ote, funds for the erection of a modern and upjto-date isolation hospital, in fact, such ac- tion would have been taken this year were it not for the fact that the government asked for a curtail- ment of all expenses in municipali- ties during the war. The present is- olation hospital is entirely Inadequ- ate and the old house on Lake ave- nue. used in addition, is not fit for such purposes. _ _ MEN NEEDED HOME ARE URGED TO FILE EXEMPTION PAPERS WASHINGTON, D. C., Sept. .-5. Because many men of the new draft ages are expected to refuse to claim exemption from military service, regardless of provost marshal general's office today suggested that employers or interested dependents should not full to file formal claims in such cases. It is pointed out that' the form of the questionnaire purposely 1 eaves the exemption claim open to be filled by others than the registrant himself. Gen. Crow- der's staff feels that failure to present legitimate exemption claims for sentimental reasons will almost certainly work hard- ship and ..injustice, especially since the local boards now are beinc asked to conduct classi- fication at top speed. Genera.! failure to have such claims filed, it is said, also will serve to slow up the work. DIVER TORPEDOES U.S. TRANSPORT RESULT OF RACE FOR GOVERNOR IS Gov.'vPhilipp Is Increasing Belated Re- turns Are Received, anfl He May "Come Under the Wire" a Winner.

The ncrwspaper report of the Journal-News gave Wilcox-v, 1717 and Philipp 2010. The of- ficial canvass today shows that Wilcox received 1703 and Phil- ipp 2016. Those figures in- crease Philipp's majority over Wilcox in Racine county from 293 to 313.......... MILWAUKEE, Sept. Gov.

Wilcox, the latest figures favoring Wilcox by 07 votes. Of the missing- precincts, 120 are said to be fEivorable to Philipp and GO to the advantage of Wilcox. Because of the closeness of the race ann the usual slight variations in the unofficial and official figures, the result, it is expected will not be known until the official canvass has been made. The county canvassing boards in the various counties met-thls morning find it will not be before they have completed their work that the win- ner of the1 primary can. be named with any degree of certainty. Gov, Philipp Thursday night de- clared that in the event he is renqm- a "few "hundred "votes 'he will Invite Senator Wilcox to -enter the field against him as an independ- ent candidate.
