SUCCESS OF Foetf
. "lilACES WHOLE
OF GERMAN PLAN
NEW YORK, July 24 (Associated Press) From all sides of
the Sotssons-Rhcims salient the Allies continue to press in
sewine up .tighter he pocket in
ol Ihe Wn Prince an.) imkira;
tion of his shattered forces.' In1 alf fifectWn.-I igihr were made vefr
terday although they were not, generally, so lortg as in the previous
fighting. 'Ihe pains made yesterday were nevertheless of predt
strategic importance. 1
WHOLE PLAN THREATENED
The German disaster threatens the, whole of the vim llinden
hurg plan for the balance of the offensive, it is recognized ly sonie
in Lierlin. wiss advices said last night that although the public
wa not fully advised in Germany of the reverse to the German
arms enough hail leaked through the news channels to seriously
alarm the people. The Frankfurter Zeitung is quoted ;is saying
l'och's counter attack threatened to head off the whole of
the von Hindenburg plan. '
LOSSES ARE ENORMOUS
German losses are conservatively estimated as in excess of
180,(C)0 men in addition to the terrain, guns, munitions, supplies an'd .
materials that have been taken and destroyed. The Renter's cor-'
respondent said yesterday that according to careful estimates, which
warrant acceptance of the figures as conservative, the German have
employed since July 15, between sixty and seventy army division's
and in the period since that date they have lost in killed, wounded
and prisonersot less than 180,000 men.
GAINS ALONG OURCQ
Important gams were made in the fighting of yesterday along
... r,. . , . , ... '. .
the Ourcq River. In that sector several villages were occupied arid
about 1800 orisoners besides manv deserted truns and machine iruns
were captured. In this advance heavy pressure had to be ovcrconlg
but the gains were most satisfactory. 1
Proceeding up the river, the French on the north bank and the
mericSns on the south the Allies overcame the pressure of the
German reserves and the French took the village of Montgru arid
proceeded on to the outskirts of Oulchy la Ville where they were
within seven miles of Fere en Tardenois which allows the guns of
the batteries that have been brought up to dominate the Armen
tieres Tardenois road, thus further interfering with German com
munications. On the .south of the Ourcq the American forces crossed the
Chateau Thierry road and advanced a distance of about three-quarters
of a mile eastward.
SEE FIRES BLAZING
From Oulchy, looking up the river, the French could see fires
blazing in Fere en Tardenois and in Villers Hatrendos, indicatitlg
that the foe was burtuiff' supplies aixl materials in preparation for
a hasty abandonment bf thosfc jiiMnts in retreat to the Vesle River.
"Ne.rr Montdidier the French Torces scored another important
advance and one of the longer gains of the day. They reached the
westerly fringe of the wood north of SauviUers-Xongival, a total at!
vanre of two miles on this front for the day. In this advance they
took three villages within fifteen minutes' time ami took 350 prison
ers and fourteen machine guns.
DOMINATE AVRE VALLEY
The French now control the heit;Wts dominating the Avre Val
ley. I'.etween the Ourcq and the Marue the French recovered all
ground lost in enemy counters on Monday in the Grissoles fegioli.
seven miles east of Chateau Thierry.
Near Marfeux, in an early attack the French took Pettichamp
wood near Marfeux, taking 200 prisoners and a number of guns. !
In the face of a stiffening resistance and after considerable dif
ficulty the French effected another crossing of the Marne at Poh
;ul ison east of Reuil and proceeded forward. i
Throughout yesterday reserves were brought up by the enemv
and new batteries placed thus stiffening the resistance at ''man v
points of the salient. This movement is expected to continue to
retard progress as it did yesterday but is regarded as a covering
movement for the withdrawal of the army which appears inevitable
MANY AIRPLANES DOWNED
In the air lighting of yesterday, official advices from Paris said,
the French and liritish aviators downed thirty seven enemy planes
and set lire to four observation balloons. Flying out over the enemy
lines they dropped many tons of bombs on several points of Ger
