ADDS TO HIS DISADVANTAGE
Allies Thoroughly : Prepared Welcome
Each Furious Onslaught As Chance
To Kill More
NEW YORK, June '1 (Associated Press) At the end of the!
first twenty-four hours of the bloodiest fighting of all the war!
the impression is gaining ground that the German offensive towards,
the Oise has already become a German defeat. Despite the em
ployment of great masses of troops, hurled into the battle vortex j
with the greatest recklessness by the Huns, the French last night
were fighting along practically the same line as at dawn. On the
wings the French defense had not budged. In the center it had bent
to only an insignificant degree, while all along the front the Ger
man dead were piled in heaps.
At no point has the French line been pierced and the deepest
German penetration has nowhere extended beyond the "covering
ground", the advanced positions between the frdnt trenches and the
real defenses prepared by the Allies. The German high command
has been unusually reckless of the
has been appalling.
FRENCH MOST CONFIDENT
Reports from the headquarters of the French army state that
every foot of German advance on this new battlefront between
Montdidier and Noyon only bring the Germans further into terri
tory prepared in the most thorough way for defense, ground with
which the Allies are thoroughly familiar and over which the Ger
man progress becomes momentarily more difficult.
The Allied staffs art fully prepared' to meet any ; German effort
: UNDIMINISHED VIOLENCE
The German offensive was maintained throughout Sunday night
and kept up all day in undiminished violence along the entire twenty
one miles, with particularly furious attacks launched against the
French left, south of Montdidier. These attacks were repeatedly
broken up on the. left, although the Germans, by pouring in masses
of reinforcements, succeeded in bending the French center back
through Ressons-sur-Matz to the outskirts of Marqueglise, making
a total advance in the center of two snd three-quarter miles.
The bitterest fighting came in the efforts of the Germans to
drive the French from their positions on the Oise south of Noyons,
the main object of Crown Prince Rupprecht being to extend the
German front south on the Oise to threaten the French salient to
the east, between the Oise and the Aisne. All the desperate attacks
of the Germans at this point failed.
INTO SLAUGHTER. HOUSE
The Germans are striking at those very places where the Allies
have been braced to receive the shock and the attackers now find
themselves being thrown into a slaughter house from whence most
of them will never live to make an exit.
The official reports from Paris state that the advance of the
Germans in the center has given them several small villages, in
eluding Mery, Celloy and St. Maure, which they occupied after
repeated assaults and after sacrificing great numbers of their men.
Every foot of advance has been at a terrific cost.
BATTLE LIKELY TO GO ON
Everywhere the French defence appears to be efficacious, with
extreme violence marking every German assault and forming the
dominant note of the battle. Desperate attacks with huge masses
of men seem likely to continue for some days, although the real line
of defense of the French has only receded at one point, that south

PARIS, June 1 1 ( Associated Press)
American murines launched a new
attack upon the Prussian lines north
west of Chateau Thierry, on the Mama
front, yesterday, penetrating the ene
my's position along a six hundred yard
front to a depth of two thirds of
mile. The attack practically cloared
the Germans out of Helleu Wooda,
leaving them with only a foothold up
on the northern edge.
The Marines carried through theit
attack impetuously, the advance being
over the bodies of dend and wounded
Germans, whose losses were heavy.
Two minnewerfera were captured.
In the neighborhood of Bouresehes
the French and Americans continued
their attacks upon the German lines,
gaining front and adding to the mm

British In Bruahes
There were German attacks upon
various British positions yesterday, one
of the heaviest being at Albert. All

were only artillery duels to be re

Karly in the day the British launch
ed a local attack south of the Homme,
making sligh gains in the neighbor
hood of Beaucancourt. While the gain
in territory was small, the advance
enabled the British considerably to
improve their position at this point.
Opinions on the general situation
were made yesterday by Premier Cle
inenceau, who, referring to the light
ing south of Noyons, said: "It's been
a perfectly satisfactory day," and by
General Foch. The Entente command

that the Allies will assume the offen

they will win.
