, ALLIED LOSSES LIGHT JTSTH!!
The Allied losses are very light lin-relatios to the losses being
inflicted on the enemy and in "proportion .to the magnitude of the,
operations. British army headquarters reports yesterday s.tate that
many more wounded Germans than British or French are ibeing
brought into the field clearing statons. Many German Red Cross
units have been qaught in the general advance , and the German
doctors and nurses are being used to help in the general emergency
hospital work, being given charge io many cases of the German
wounded the British Red Cross workers bring in,
North of the Anere the British are now firmly established in
their new positions and the German counters, which have been
fierce around Chipily and Morlancourt since the launching of tue
Allied drive, have ceased altogether. The Germans are now falling
back all along this part 6f the line, saving whatever they can, while
British patrols are pushing their way toward Bxay, an important
base point of the enemy.
AMERICANS IN HARD FIGHT
On this section pi the. faot .noh of the &mnie an American
force came into the battle yesterday. .Following the caHure of
Montdidier by the French, the British and Americans advanced tor
pethcr beyond their objectives taking ChijMly pwr after 4e8p.era.te

quarters, wen; not more than might be expected, considering the
bit.er fighting. . i . '

"t4ns is tl

(Associated Tress)
lis is the time when the Kre(
est efforts must be put forth to
keep. tbe enemy running," was a
comment of Chief of Staff Gen.
Peyton C. March in the rcfiort
which he read yesterday at his
weekly conference with the news
paper, men.
:Our troops have taken more
prisoners than they could han-
dlev.,ahe read in connection wilh
the Results achieved south of Al
bert. The British report that all
of their camps behind Amiens are
filled vijith, prisoners. The Allies
have, captured, all of the artillery
of the foe iu that sector."
He said that some American
forces have been thrown into the
hghting in the Somme-Amiens
salient and have succeeded in
overcoming a stiff resistance and
helped the British to capture
some important positions.
ALLIES ADVANTAGE
; Reverting to-the general situa
tion General Jul arch said:.' "The
crrentest arlvnntarrr that has cnm&

to. the Allies is that tbey have tak
en the, pffensive and can now keep
'Jte enemy . guessing in j toad of

our greatest effort. General Fm-h
is following sound 'military prin
ciples aud is hitting without .re
laxajtion Wb8 . you get the
.enemy going, keep him going.
"Tiie whole . battle line from
Rheims to Inlanders is being
straightened out. The Franco
British drive in Picardy has put
the enemy in a bad position,
again, one similar to that in
wliivh thay found themselves in
the Aisne-Marne salient. They
arc hi. a pocket which is being
closed upoM them." .
Any suggestion that the end of
the war is at hand because of
these recent Allied successes
should be discouraged, he said,
but the time has come to keep the
enemy r mining and to hit him
hard.
KEEP NIBBLING
Reverting again to the situa
tion on the V'esle front where
there are large numbers of Amer
