Boys in British
1 Are Supervised
(Correspondence of the Associated Press.)
London. Tune 1. A nvt boy prob'
lem brought about by the war ha,
created a field for male experts in
social work in England that of act
ing" as supervisors for the thousands
of boys employed on munitions work
throughout the country. The sudden
riscin the economic value of the boy,
the competition for his services and
the high wages he is paid have made
many of his kind less amenable to
discipline than ever.
The Workers' Welfare Department
of the Ministry of Munitions which
has been studying the boy problem in
its new phases finds that the chief
complaints are these:
Feeling certain of easily finding an'
other job, a boy readily leaves a work'
shoD because of some slight misunder
standing or seeming injustice, ana Ms
high wages tend to make him inde
pendent of home control, and extrava
gant and thriftiness in spending them.
Believing that the boy needs, aside
from the formal factory control,
kindly supervision and guidance, it
has been decided to appoint super
visor to be paid by the management
of each of the 3,UW-odd munitions
It is proposed that the supervisor
shall look after the general working
conditions so far as they affect the
health and comfort of the boys. Be
fore any boy it dismissed or given his
discharge, the case is to be turned
over to the supervisor so that, by an
interview with the boy, or a visit to
hit home, he may be able to remove
the cause ot the trouble.
It is intended also that the super'
visor shall be told the wages each boy
earns, which will enable him to ap
preciate the boy's financial position in
his home, and devise the best means
for encouraging him to save.
Over 100,000 Lost by
British Fighting Turk,
Says Vienna Journal
(Correspondence of the Associated Press.)
Vienna. June 1. The losses of the
British Irak expeditionary force
amounted, up to the end of the second
week in May, to more than 100,000
men in killed, wounded and prisoners,
according to Heer Und Politik.
In a series of engagements with the
Turks last November the British lost
1,020 dead, according to this journal,
and this number must, it says, be
added, together with its proportion
of wounded, to the British casualty
lists published at that time, admitting
a loss of 25,000 men in. the Irak cam
paign. At the first of the year 1916
the British losses were more than
40,000 officers and men killed and
wounded in action or dead of disease,
according to this paper's figures.
' If to all these figures are added the
prisoners of Kut-el-Amara, tHe total
estimate of 100,000 in British losses

addition to the unresponsiveness of cable
quotations an increase of country offerings.

crop conditions In the southwest. Absence
of export demand operated further to cause

FORCE FOR SALONIIIOYE
Experts Say Offensive Could Hot Be
Undertaken With Fewer Than
TERRAIN DITFICUIUES GREAT
(CorreaponSenee trf the Asanclalaa Krsss.) j
Sofia. Miv 31. In military Quarters
at the itfacedonian front and in polit- '
ical circles here the opinion is ex
pressed to the Associated Press cor
respondent that while an offensive
move on the part of the entente
forces at Salomki is not out of the
Question, such a maneuver would be
evoid of all prospects of success rl
unaertaken with tewer than jury
army corps, or about 2,000,000 men.
Thus far the entente allies hare
brought to Saloniki about 350,000 ef
fectives, with the addition ot w,uuu
Serbians the entente coircmgent
would still be below a half a million
men, a force considered here as being
entirely inadequate to undertake the
rehabilitation of Serbia.
The terrain difficulties which the
entente troopi -would be obliged to
overcome are regarded as enormous.
In all cases the entente, troopi would
have to fight uphill. One or two ad
mittedly weak points in the Bulgaro-Austro-German
line are amply cover
ed by stronger positions immediately
in ine rear, n la siaieu ra xnc
respondent, so that a falling back
would be an entirely strategical affair.
The Macedonian defense line runs
in the main as follows: In the east it
has the Cengal Dagh as its extreme
rtnint nf smrmrtrt. Theas: mmmtaifrs .
are from 4,500 to 4,800 feet high, rug
ged and precipitous towards e
south, the Erection ef attack. Then
cornea the' very narrow Talley of the
Struma, the defense of which can be
carried out from the foothills of Bel-
ashitea Planma. West of this Talley

single high crest some forty kilo-
nicies .unit I uniting uuc wcbi, owuu,
of the Tsnffe in ouestion lies the val
ley and lake of Doiran, and slightly
to the northwest of the Uoiran ami
vardar ralleys the Blarusha Flamna,
m -which the Anglo-French troops
were oeieatea in tne name oi io-,
tnrmo, in November, 1915.
The remainder of the line consists
of the Padjah, Marianika, B la tec,
Nidshe, Dobropolje Planinas and
their connecting crests. Then comes
east of Monastir, a terrain -which so
far , has not interested the entente
troooS verv much. The Suhagora
mountains and . Mato and Prespa
lakes adjoin the -very difficult moun
tain country ot southeastern Albania.
Feasible lines of advance of the
entente troops are the Vardar Valley
and the country about Doiran: the
valley oi the Kanua river, upon Mon
aitir; and lastly the Talley of the
Struma. Only the first named conies
iuto consideration, however. To reach
the Stroma, the Creek government
would have to place at the disposal
of the entente troop the railroad
line to Detnir Hissarj anil to advance
towards Monastir the railroaq to that
point would have to be used.
Line1 Purely Defensive, '
The present Entente line is sorely
defensive. Its center is at Kukush, in
tireece, tntrty-lrve kilometers trom
Lake Uoiran. from there is sweeps
in an arc towards the Vardar valley,
where at the closest point of contact
the lines of the two opposing forces
are still 3.000 yards from one another.
This peculiar line of the Entente
surprise by the Bulgaro-Germans. In
some quarters the view is held that
it was dictated by a concentration
rearward, due to the transfer to
France of considerable French forces.
Since the country between Kukush
and the Bulg arc-German front is
open, the Entente troops would have
little difficulty advancing to the op
ponent's lines. The wtuation hai per
mitted the establishment of a line of
entrenchments by the Bulgaro-Germans
that may be said to have its
equal only in the western theater of
war. : . -: '
In reviewing the chances of the
Entent troops to drive the Bulgaro-Austro-Geraians
out of Macedonia
and Serbia, Bulgarian and German
officers argue that wiist 400,000 Ser
bian troops could not do on the de
fensive cannot be undertaken by the
Entente troops on the offensive un
less an army of 2,000,000 is employed.
The Serbian army, despite its num
ber and heroic conduct, failed to
prevent Serbia falling entirely into
the hands oi the central armies. This
was due in part to the great flank
attack executed byt he Bulgarians,
which endangered the Serbian army
constantly. Entente forces advanc
ing north would have to count with
the same handicap, it is pointed out,
and for this reason, no offensive from
Salonki can be successful, ft is
claimed, unless the Entente govern
ments are ready to employ the large
Opinion is expressed here that the
central group of belligerent! must
ultimately clear Salonki oi its foreign
garrison, either with, or without the
consent of Greece. Since Greece
realises that its Macedonian posses
sions will be placed in jeopardy if the
central power troops eject the En
tente forces from Saloniki and its
hinterland, it is easily conceivable, ac
cording to well informed circles here,
that the closing chapter of the Balkan
operations will contain the fact that
the Greek troops assisted in removing
the Anglo-French forces from Sal.
