south of the Somme, and also have
driven back across the Ancre river,
the Germans who forded the stream
Wednesday. The fighting still contin-
ues to be sanguinary on all these sec-
tors, but everywhere the British and
French are holding the enemy. Es-
pecially severe has been the fighting
west of Albert where the Germans in
an endeavor to debouch westward
were repulsed by Field Marshall Haig's
men with heavy casualties.
British Gain Near Somme
The British gains between the Som-
me and Ancre regions are represented
by the recapture of the town of Mor-
lancourt and Crapelle. South of the
Somme they have advanced to Proy-
art which lies to the south of Bray.
All along the 50-mile front from the
region of Arras to the south of Oise
near Noyon, the effects of what was
to have been the final stroke to end
the war in a victory for the Teutons,
are plainly evident only in the re-
devastation of the country side and
the wreck of the towns and villages
through which the armies have pass-
ed.
400,000 Germans Disabled
I It is estimated that in the great at-
tacks delivered in mass formation
more than 400,000 of the nearly 1,000,-
000 men the Germans threw into the
fray are dead, wounded, or aie in the
hands of the Allies.
-About 25 miles represents the great-
est point of penetration made at any
place by the enemy in his advance,
and at the northern and southern ends
of the big salient he has left his flanksf
dangerously open to counter attacks,r
which, if successful possibly, might
result in a retreat greater than in
1916 retrograd movement of von Hin-
denburg, and nullify in its entirety the
drive that has been accomplished. ;
Allies Front Strong
Notwithstanding the strength of the
German drive, of the British or French
front, along the latter of which Amer-
ican troops have given a good account
of their ability as fighters, has not
been dented.. Ground has been given,
it is true, but so skillfully and with
such precision of movement that a
surveyor could have scarcely have
worked out a more even line. Still
intact in the hands of the allied fore-
es are portions of the old line from
which von Hindenburg fell back in
his "strategic retirement" in 1916.
On the other battle fields the opera-
tions of a minor character continue,
but daily the situation in Italy gives
further indications that an offensive
against the Italians is in preparation.
Large re-inforcements continue to be
drawn up behind their lines by the
Austrians and Germans, and the artil-
lery activity on the whole front is,
growing more intense.
