MAIN PLAN HAS FAILED
There is small dJubt that 'the attackers intended by their su
preme effort in thH lector, southwest of St. Quentio, to effect a
rupture in the
British line, but We
were the German
leaders of success is evidenced
brought in bv avia,torSj who" State that the Germans yesterday
brought forward cavalry' tehirld" this front, the evident intentior
being to throw this cavalry force into the breach for the first of a
nat turning movement
Throughout yesterday afternoon the Germans attacked unceas
ingly against the British, right f flank, .which rests upon the Frencl
left near Ham,' while there was so the most desperate fighting sixty
mill's to the north, at Mory. ' liere the British counter charged re
peatedly, only to be met, by frtsji Germltv troops And. driven back
again, th, reform for newcounter charge. For miles along thi
sector the grovtnd is hidden by themirigled dead of bqth armies.
, HAIG WIRES BRIEF SUMMARY
Reporting on the general situation, General Haig w,ired yes
terday afternoon: ' .
"The battle js continuing with the greatest intensity on our
whole front south of the Scarpe River. Southwest of St. Quentit
our troops have taken up tjheir new positions, where we arc heavih
engaged with the fneny." ,
The battle has lapped past the British section in the Hani sec mi
and the French are heavily engaged defending their left flank, agains
which large enemy forces are being thrown In the effort to break i'
away from the British-right. Portuguese troops' are engaged in the
fighting on this sector. - .
- BRITISH DEFENSE SUPERB
Karly reports from correspondents w.ith thfc British forces say
that the operations are so fast, and the changes of situation and ebb
and flow of the tide of battle backwards and. (or wards, are so kalei
doscopic, that it is impossible to visualize the scene as a whole.
Forty-six German divisions have been identified of,t)ie huge
attacking forces. Expert estimates place the number of German
participating as ninety divisions.
The strength of th,e enemy mortar fire obliterated the British
trenches and cut the defensive wire. Gas shells were sent over in
va-t numbers without, however, reaching all the British positions
At one point, where the wire remained unbroken, the Germans used
giant scissors, carrying the implements in the forefront of the at
tacking parties, reminiscent of the methods of Frederick the Great
SLAUGHTER IS TERRIFIC
The slaughter of the enemy is apparently the greatest of which
du re is any record. - ,
F.very available gun on the Allied front is concentrated on the
solid bodies of enemy troops, hurled forward in waves following the
artillery fire. . - -
