HURL BMlit ATTACK
AND COUNTER HARD
Foe Gains Foothold At One
Point On Piave But Can
W.V KINGTON', June 19 (Associated Press (Austria's giant
human pincers are unable to close upon, the Italians as they
.lid last October in spite of the desperate elTorts ot the Austrian
cc .i .inanders who yesterday hurled half as many more men into
the i;rcat combat in Northern Italy as have been hitherto employed.
The French. I'.ritish and Italian troops have stalled the upper jaw
of the pincers in the Venetian Alps and all of the power of the Aus
tiians is unable to move it. Along the upper I'iave front the Aus
irians have gained a footing but no moe and along the lower reaches
..f the river the Italians are also holding them splendidly.
In the Alps the foe has been unable to make any advance since
ihe initial advance and the terrain that fell before its first mighty
'low has been regained by the Allies. Their losses are reported to
' enormous and it is reported they Jiave thrown thirty-two new
divisions into the onslaught, thus bringing the total up to ninety-
wo army divisions numbering in all a million men or more.
RESIST AND COUNTER
vThe Allies are successfully resisting at all points and are cottn
vr attacking vigorously and with splendid results, said the Italian
nfiicial report issued last night. "The Austrians arc resisting our
.ottnters desperately but at points have been compelled to give
'round. Much of the fighting is at close quarters and a battle field
f more tlian one hundred miles in length is drenched with blood.
The Italian command feels that the first onrush of the Austrian
hordes has been effectually blocked but realizes that the final vie-
ory has not yet been achieved and that the Austrians will' renew
their efforts, probably throwing the weight of still greater num
bers of legions against us. Each day the conflict is lecoi"'nq- more
FRENCH FIGHT GALLANTLY
Enemy repulses and successful counters by the Krencli forces
ii Italy are told in a llavas despatch which was received in Paris
'.ite last night. On the French front the Austrians opened the day
with a bombardment of intense violence and this w;is followed by
troii attacks of massed troops. Here, as everywhere on the Asiago
front, the attacks were repulsed. With the repulse of the foe the
Mlies countered heavily upon them, accelerating the retreat and
nking prisoners as well as important war materials. In this fight
ing the enemy losses were immense as can be judged from the fact
that before the position of one French regiment there lie the bodies
of more than six hundred slain Austrians.
AUSTRIA USES RESERVES;,-.,
bringing in thirty-two more army divisions, using every avail
tide gun and with a vast flock of air craft to assist, using three
I'rmies in all against the long Italian front, the Austriatjs exerted
their greatest efforts to get their pincer movement underway yes
ii'rd.ty. The fighting became more intense than on any of the pre
vious days of the attempted offensive. Generally the Austrian
ilorts were fruitless and they' were hurled back, only to return over
i he corpses of their own dead and to be again repulsed. After the
assaults in the Asiago and the mountain sectors had been shattered
ud after the successful counters against the foe, the fighting on the
eft Hank of the Italian front slackened but on the right flank, alon.g
the I'iave River it gained an even greater intensity.
GAIN SMALL FOOTHOLD
lietwccn the Conegliano railroad and Zenson bend on the Piave
River the Austrians, under heavy Italian fire have succeeded in
throwing across the river, within a distance of a mile and a half,
loiirti'cn bridges and have gained a foothold on the Western bank
of the river. Hut there their efforts to force away through to the
Venetian Plains have been stopped and they are held tinder the
rrritii- fire of the Italian batteries, .suffering enormous losses and,
thus far. unable to proceed further. Here is the only Hitit where
the olTensixe, now entering on its fifth day, has gained any nieas
: r.iMe advantage.
Vienna reports late yesterday afternoon claimed the capture of
.U,'X) prisoners and 120 guns.
As against this is to be reckoned the definite knowledge that
'lie Austrians have themselves lost thousands of prisoners, many
i-Mtts ami their casualty list is far in excess of that of the Allies
. ho are fighting from superior positions and in the mountain sre
'rs Irom the higher ground.
Italian Ambassador Celere called at the war department offices
vesterdav and spent a long time in conversation with Secretary
P.aker. W hen the talk was concluded neither of them would issue
. nv statement but it is understood that their prolonged conference
elated chiefly to the recent proposals that American forces shall
i sent to Italy as well as to the French front.
