cnres into t tic German front to tlic southwest of Ypres tlie eiu-tnv
contimved their tactics of throwing vast luxlics in massed foi in:itin
sin! wave wm wave against the British in that hector venter ;a .
The position before Ypres had been withdrawn somewhat to a n
line and against this the main attacks of the Huns were directed
To flatten the broad salient which hinges upon Ypres i now
th evident purpose of the (iernians. They have driven a cnrc
into the British line which has brought the general line of the we t
ein front into a formation like an immense inverted S. Tin- lias
placed a targe part of the (icrman forces m a great jKJiket. If i'h
1 alt, to straighten out the British line and so enlarge this pocket t lie
Urt'tfsh position will be"' a strong one. By a counter from Ypie- the
I'ritish might reconquer and regain all or nearly all of the ground
that has been lost in the northern battle front. The very despera
tion of the Merman assaults ujon the Ypres sector indicates that
they know their position will be untenable unless they can widen
the salient in that direction.
NEW ATTACK PENDING
From British headquarters last night a Reuters dcspatc'i -aid
an attack seemed to be impending between Wytschaete and Baillcul
This would plainly, b a part of the effort on the success of which
the (icrman venture, rests.
Early in the day the British fell back to higher .ground which
doubly strengthened their position in that it gave tliirrj aii advantage
in footing anil assured an egress in case further falling back .should
be, demanded. jT
With unabated fury the battle raged throughout yesterday and
the losses to both sides were very heavy. Throughout the ni'il
and all through the day thousands of guns thundered and belched
forth death and destruction. From forty to fifty miles away the
sounds of the great artillery fire could be heard and window- were
shaken by the vibrations from the detonations.
WIN BUT FALL BACK
With Incre'diblc intensity the fighting proceeded. Strong count
erg wer.q lapuched lr the British and wrtth splendid bravery theyi
Iroe baek.'the-eficniy and gained footholds at Metere and at W'yts
t'haetc. Colonel Maurice, the British "eye witness"' said the great
er part of Wytschaete had ln-en recovered in these brilliant counter
but last night (ieneral Haig in his official report said the British
Irid been forced to fall back from those positions and there had been
liM'c change to result from the day's lighting.
In tremendous waxes the Teutons pressed an attack upon tl.
?t!1ebcke 'only to lu shot down at short lauge by a lire which io c
Tc;t't lane-, through the advancing ma.ss.es. In his three years o,"
experie.it c w hich included the greatest battles of hi-toi v. the corre
spondent reported, he had not heard anything to approach this
tremendous and unintcrmitteiit fire nor witncsM'd anviliing which
coiiM approach the appalling wholesale slaughter a that of yes
terday. NO IMPORTANT GAINS
Against these onslaughts the British armie- hi Id and at im point
.could live -4ir;nians claim an important gain. The I'.iiti-h hue had
held, and at times made gains. The effort-, oi the enemy were
fruitless of aiy success.
Between Wytschaete and Baillcul there wa- a continuous ran
noriading arid some strong infantry attacks of the enemy which
failed. Here were the indications of an impending .itt.ek in massed
force. At Boyelles the British steadfastly maintained the -tn.iig
osition which thev held.
