It is learned tViafthe (iernian high command intended that effort to
le a real smash, the object of which was to get astride the Scarpe
River for the flanking of the British on Vimy kidge and for the
capture of this highly important nsition and also thetown of Arras.
GERMANS SEyERELY DEFEATED
The attack, which had been made in force, was .a complete fail
VTt. The British line-stood intact at the conclusion; of the battle,
while the enemy was thrown back, severely defeated, losing several
thousand prisoners and'many thousand dead and wounded.
The French counters in the N..y.n sector arc scoring heavily
and with fresh troops arriving to reinforce the new French line and
drive U still deeper into the enemy's flank, the situation js becoming
" one that must give the German command serious concern.

.dinand Foch, "Hero of the Manie," organizer of the defeiise
if Ypres when the (lertnans first attempted to break through for the
Channel ports, first lieutenant of Marshal )offre, has been selected
by the supreme war council of the Entente as commander-in-chief
f the for.es of the Entente and of America in France.
Official word of this selection and of the placing bf General
Foch in supreme command in France,' was received 'in Washington
yesterday, morning, the actual announcement not being made public
nntil after President Wilson had cabled his congratulations to Gene
al Foch and had made public the text of his message. The Presi
"May I convey my sincere congratulations upon your new au
thority. Such unity of command is most hopeful and an augury of
ultimate success." . ,
Prior to the official announcement of the choice of General
Foch, the disposition of the American forces in France was placed
in his hands by General Pershing, who called upon General Foch at
the war office in Paris. The incident is reported in 1,'Informatitm.
vhich quotes the American general as saying:
"Americans would consider it a great honor to our troops were they to-e-uuaue
in the Picardy bnttle. I ask it in my name snd that of the Amcri
people. All we.ksve Vs yours. Dipo of thow ka you will. Americana will
i'C proud to engngo in tbe jrrentest battle in history."
TOE PBEBBHT OPEBATIONS difiY
It is stated in despatches from Uosdon, which quote the London Post, that
the French and British have agreed upon tho selection of General Koch aa the
tuprorae roaunsnder for the present operations only, the mutter f a pt nun
uent supremo command to be determinml Inter. t
It ia knowq here that the American and French representatives on the
Versailles supreme war con mil have long been urging a uniBcation of com
nan. la. That this has com" now is ue to the necessity of a concentration of
efforts, in which divisions from all the armies eugnged will participate, making
a unified command imperative. . .
Yeaterday General Pershing cabled, to Chief of Staff March: "I bave male
all American resoarecs available to General Foch and our .divi ijn witl be
used if and wh.ort they ae necessary. The French are in fine spirits arid both
Jie French and British armies seem coSndent of victory."
