proacft Disaster For Mies
LONDON. April 13 (Associated Press) The mightiest battle
of tin- war continues to rage in undiminished violence along
the British line it Northern France and Southern. Flanders. w',!
t lie tiertnan legions making gain at one point, that arc important
I nt heinjj held at every crucial section of the blazing front Utterly
reckless of the cost in. the lives of their men, the (crnvin high com
mand continues to drive his massed armies forward and jhc slaugh
ter has reached proportions that make tame in comparison) the red
dest days of the Verdun struggle.
GERMAN CAINS ENLARGED
While the Germans have gained none of thf. dominant p-i-lion?.,
despite their continuous assaults, they have enlarged their
rains in the salient thrust northwest towards ., JBailleul from the
south of Armentieres, forcing the British line at this, point into a
sharp U, with its loop running a short distance southeast of Bail
leul and its points resting upon Armentieres ajid J.ayentie. The
opening made in the British position is some five miles wide and
into this von llindenburg is pouring fresh troops and an increas
ing number of guns. . . .,, ,
DEFINITE CRISIS REACHED
Colonel Maurice,, the British "Eye Witness", describing thN -it-u.ition,
says that it is "not pleasant"'.
"A dchnite crisis has again been reached and the situation is
not pleasant. The enemy has -driven tfte tip of his Armentiere
wedge forward until it ia now near Bailleul, a railroad center for
the lines leading to he Wytschaete and the Messines fronts, lie
is also advancing towards Haze'nhrouck, also an irn'pWtant railroad
center. However, the Germans have not yet gained any of the
dominant positions and the British are strenuously resisting any
HAIG ISSUES STRONG APPEAL
Early in the day, in general orders, Field Marshal Haig is-uol
a stirring appeal to his men to fight to the last. "Every position
from nnw on must be held to the last 'man", he said. "There must
be no further retirements, but .with our backs to the wall and be
lieving in the justice of our cause, each must fight to the end. The
safetv of our homes and the freedom of mankind depends upon us".
To this appeal the British responded nobly, smashing back
the Germans nlong all hut two parts of the front and on fhese yield
ing ground only when to remain would entail certain capture by
vastly superior numbers and fighting for every inch of the way
The-German losses are reported by prisoners and by the British
commanders as terrific, while the British also lost heavily.
Field Marshal Haig, in his official rcjMirtj to the war office,
described the day as follows:
"The enemy maintained a strong pressure all day against the
l!ritish lines southwest of Bailleul, the British being pushed b;-.ck
in continuous fighting to a position in the neighborhood of the Bail
leul railroad, where we are now heavily engaged.
"The enemy also made slight progress between the Eawe and
"At all other points we maintained our positions."
It is definitely ascertained that sjnee March 21. when the Battle
of the Somme was launched, the Germans hae brought into their
offensive more than two million men. More than one hundred and
ten divisions have now beer) identified.
BERLIN ANNOUNCES SUCCESSES
The official German account of the recent fighting against the
northern end of the British front, which recounts men and guns
taken, says: "Three thousand British, including fifty officers, sur
rendered at Armentieres when their retreat was cut off by the Ger
man advance to the south. We also, captured at this point forty-five
cannons, manv machine guns and other rich booty. The total ntim
ler of men captured in the Battle of Armentieres is now twenty
thousand, with two hundred cannons."
Along the twentv live miles of this great battle, the British have
been pushed back lor an average of two miles north and south ol
Arnuntiercs. and along the entire front the Germans are ceaselessly
attempting to add to these gains. General Ilaig is making a bril:
liant defense however, and the German advance is slowing down
The attacks, however, arc undiminished in violence and the force-;
being thrown into the conflict are being constantly reinforced with
lresh men. j- : J'
There has been nothing approaching disaster in any of the
British reverses and the loss of towns and the -trip of territory are
only part of the grim game in which each side is racing to see which
can kill the most of the other
gaps in their own ranks.
Wounded men from British
brought back here for hospital
mates slaughtered the Germans as
heaps over which others trampled
be trainuled upon, and still the
that they could not be killed fast
paid a terrific price for every foot.
"Yesterday morning, following
British line- on the Messines rulge. German uilantiv succeeded in
Mvuring a temporary f(X)thold on a portion of this highly valuable
terrain. British reinforcements arriving, heav v counter attacks de
veloped ami the ridge was cleared again of the cneniv. Gcrmai)
attacks which followed were smashed and the enemy driven back.
Again-t the village of Ville l.'hapcllc determined attacks were
mad, three times the Germans charging in wave- and three times
retiring, their ranks shattered and broken by the hail of shell and
bullets which greeted them. Here their losses were immense.
North of Armentieres hetvy drives were made against I'loeg
stcert, the Germans pressihg the British back to the neighborhood
of Neuve Eglisc, the Germans capturing Mcrville At other seer
