AUSTRIA USING ALL MEN POSSIBLE With the Italian Army, June 16. -As the first phase of the battle unfolds, it Is evident that Austria Is  engaging all the,,forces possible, although the exact number of the divisions, in action is as yet unknown. Italy's soldiers are fighting on their own soil, and by English and French troopc. All are in the best spirits and making supreme sacrifices to prevent the enemy from obtaining the advantage which Is supposed to belong to an army launching an offensive. The uneasiness preceding the offensive was dissipated, followed by satisfaction by the Austrian action in the TInale district which Intended to block, any efforts of the Italians to threaten their rear and possibly cut the single railway line leading from Austria into the Italian Alps. It appears that the Austrlans had been preparing the railway most carefully so that automobile trucks could carry forward troops and munitions over It.
