FORCES London, July 4.-Remarking that the press had emphasized the fact that American troops had been brigaded wltli the British and French, Admiral Sims, at the celebration today, said he wanted to call attention to the fact that for nearly a year all the American naval forces in European waters bad. been brigaded with British and otlier allied forces. A majority of the destroyers from the United States had been serving under the military direc tlon ot a British admiral for more than a year. Others wei* serving with tliifC.-British in Uio Mediterranean. Many destroyers- and other vessels �were under French command and submarine chasers were In the Adriatic. American dreadnoughts had been serving under the commander In chief ot the Grand Fleet. "It Is unnecessary," said Admiral Sims. to state that the reason for this has no connection with the competence ot the admirals to direct their own forces. From the very beginning it was established as an infiexibio'policy that unity ot command and direction was a _prime requisite tor success." Performed Duty The American forces, he declared, were small compared to the united naval forces, but they had performed tlieir duties to-thc satisfaction of their supreme oommandera. America's effort'w-st not at an end, although she has in I'uioponn waters 250 ships, 3000 officers and 40.000 men servlnsr in all (he-Kui'opeau areas. The coming year more than three times the present number of destroyers will he fighting with the allies, more than 150 sujjmar-Ina chasers will bo in the war zone. More than half ot them are here now. "The submarine situation has been met," the admiral asserted. "At the present time the allies are .sinking submarines faster than they are being built and building ships faster than they are being sunk." Admiral Sims concluded: "It is idle to prophesy how long the war will last. The only definite statement that can be made Is that It will last until Germany is thoroughly beaten."

OF FIERCE NAIURE mim �FRIDAY AND SATURDAY PARAMOUNT PICTURES PRESENT Italian Army Headquarters, July 3. -The fighting that is in progress along the lower roaches of the Plavo is as severe as was that ot last week In this region, where mud. sand and water are everywhere under foot and clumps of tall growing grasses are frequent. To add to the difficulties rain and wind storma occasionally swept over the area. At four points the Italians attacked the Austrian position in this region along a front of eight miles. In this comparatively small stretch no loss than 12 temporary bridges thrown across by the Austrians were destroyed by airplanes dropping small barrels of burning oil upon them. The Italian infantry are frequently seen at a short distance away calmly waiting while the bridges are attacked from tlio air, -Uie troops then being thrown against the remaining Austrians. About the most violent reaiatanco diflplayed by any of the enemy troops is that of the Bosnians and Herze-govlnlans on this front, who are still wearing thejr picturesque turbans. As the Italians advance they are finding' the dead among those already stripped by their comrades. There are other Austrians. however, who as aoon as they are taken prisoner and find themselves safe within the Italian lines cry "Down with Austria."
