NE.YORK August 2 (Associated TresS) The central and

. Rcetics of mighty struggles with the" Allies smashing at the crum

' success attained by the Allies during the day that the Germans all
iloug' the section from south, of Soissons to northwest of Fere-en-ardenois
are seemingly in' a most precarious position, while sruth
at of the latter point the Germans have likewise been badly beaten.

GERMAN UNE BLbTTED OUT . ' ,
From Fere-tnTardenoia' northwest to Buzancy, a distance of
u-n miles, (the entire German line ipf yesterday morning has been
blotted out and the Germans driven back along the north hank of
the Ourcq from " the easterly salietjt they had managed to' retain
until this last drive. " From Fere to Hartenne the Allies now have
a straight front, their gains giving hem nnich valuable ground from
which' to launch their, flanking movement against Soissons, whicn
appears to be the logical next step, '
The Germans have lost tremendously, being without artiilcrvl
to resMjnd to the steady hail of shells which deluged their rear posi
tions or to check the Allied tanks.
IMPORTANT, GAINS MADE
Last evening American forces with nritish and French troops
were fighting a severe battle north of tbe Ourcq in the center of the
salient-it is reported in the night despatches from Paris.
In the course of the day's fighting in this sector the Allies took
Grand Rozoy to the northwest of Fere-en-Tardenpis. Thence they
proceeded on to, Plessiere Wood where the combatants locked in
the tightest of trrios. The heiirht tothe north of Grand Rozov where
thev had annroached to within five
I'a.oches about three miles west of Fismes, the junction joint on
the only railroad that is left to the Germans as a means of exit from
this salient. Aerial observers reported that the Germans were in
precipitate flight from Launoy, midway between Soissons and Fere
en I anlcnois.
FORTIFIED WOODS CLEARED
The attack started in the morning with large numbers of tanks
-iving important aid and a heavy .barrage from the Allied batteries.
dvancing with machine guns the Allies quickly cleared the forti
fied woods, thickets and villages. To this barrage and machine gun

The German withdrawal toward the Vesle River is progressing
in full swing, it was reported in the night communique from the
nierican front. This followed an American thrust into the center
of the enemy line at Seringes.
AMERICANS PRESS, ONWARD
The enemy is clinging1, with a force, horn of sheer, desperation
to their strongholds at Nesle and Hois Meuniere to the northeast
..f Kocheres but the Americans have. gained a hold on the northern
end of Meuniere Wood. The Nesle fores't is under the American,
nuns and the Germans are rushing up reinforcements with tanks
in the protection "of those positions so that severe counters are anti
cipated. The heavy guns of the American batteries are pounding Meu
niere Woods unmercifully. Observers and prisoners report that
iliese woods are jammed with German forces and stored with great
ipiantitics of supplies. The German losses must be very great. Their
l.ailied wiri defenses' have been completely blasted away by the
incrican shell fire which has thrown explosive shells by the thou
aiul and ripped and torn their positions to pieces.
Northeast of Sergy, after a battle of an hour, the American
I v attillery was brought up and now commands Chamery, north
i .i t of Sergy.
ARTILLERY MOVED NORTH
