Saturday night the Germans
launched , an attack in force upon
the British positions northeast f
Ypres where for several days pre
vious they had been conducting se
vere bombardments. The attack
proved futile fof the British raUod
the Germans with a strong fire and
the attack, was repulsed before h
even reached the entanglements
and with a tremendous loss for the
FRENCH HOLD ON V v.
At Dezonavaux and Vauquois in
the St Quentin 'sector the enemy I
launched' attacks upon tlie French
positions but both of these assaults
were met and readily repulsed' by
the Poilus who took a large num
ber of prisoners in v the counter I
which was" immediately launched
and put the Bodies to rout.
Aside ..from 'bombardments and
reciprocal, artillery duels there was
little other activity on the Western
Front. On the French front the
weather is Very cold and a heavy
