British Line Holds
From Arleux north of Arras, to Al-
bert on the Somme, the British line
has been holding stubbornly and has
thrust back the Germans at a num-
ber of points. From Albert south
to Montdidier there has been a slow
movement to the west, but the hill
west of Montdidier is still being held
by the French. No ground has been
made against the French along the
southern side of the salient driven
into the allied lines, while it is as-
serted that the French counter attack
from Lassigny to Noyon is still going
on. The extreme depth of the Ger-
man wedge now is about 37 miles.
Wait for Allies to Strike
Meanwhile the allied world is wait-
ing for the . entente forces to strike
back at the Germans. The German
advance now is converging on Amiens,
