DRIVEN BACK ALONG
Germans Resist Desperately At Some Points
But At Others Appi
Up Preparatory tQ Surrender
LONI50N, August 22 (Associated Press) Latinc-liing an offen
sive against a new front, , the Jlntish yeslcjrday struck porth of
the Ancre River along ten milds, driving in the German lines from
the Ancre north to Moycnneville, taking more titan a thousand pris
oners, several towns and villages and some guns. The latent reports
from, British headquarters last night were that the British advance
was still in progress! with no signs that the conclusion of the battle
had been reached.
At some vital points the Germans resisted heavily, but at others
there was no resistance to speak of, the enemy surrendering read
ily at the first approach. .of the British tanks- The town of Beau
court, which had a German garrison of some hundreds, was won
with a total British casualty list of only three men.
PfclSOtfERS CARRY HANDBAGS
Some German prisoners marched into the British lines carrying
handbags and long-stemmed porcelain pipes, having apparently pack
ed up ready to surrender at the first opportunity. These men seem
ed to have cleaned up for the occasion and appeared as cheerful in
being captured asliouh they were going from the front on leave.
A large number of fast "Whippet" tanks were used by the Bri
tish, these exacting heavy toll aldng this front as they did along
the Soniuic, dashing into and through the German defense lines,
crushing out machine gun nests, shelling every German concen
tration with their quick-firers and rounding up and bringing back
prisoners. Armored cars afso took part in the battle, chasing the
Boche from their lairs.
More than a thousand prisoners had been counted and checked
into the cages in the rear when General JIaig last reported yesterday.
DRIVE IS SURPRISE
Without any artillery preparation and led by the fast tanks the
attack was launched at dawn yesterday, at first along a front of
eight and a half miles, which later was extended on the north a mile
and a half further. The drive came as a surprisi? to the Germans,
who had been launching a scries of local offensives against the Bri
tish line just to the north of the new battleground, centering on the
Participating in the offensive is the British third army, com
manded by General Byng. The advance has already penetrated the
German lines deeply and has swept over Beaucourt, Puisieux-au-Munr,
Achietple-Petit; Achict-Ie-Graiid, Ablainzevelle, CourceUcs-le-Comte
'and Moycnneville. The railroad which. had. paralleled the
German front between Achiet-le-Grand and tjoislejix-au-Mont, con
necting this front with the supply points of Bapaume and Croisilles,
is now almost whofly in British hands and the British tanks have
penetrated well along the way towards Bapaume, once before the
British objective on the Picardy front.
ADVANCE IS STILL ON
Along the whole front sin average advance of five miles has been
made, with the British pressing steadily. Whenever the British
infantry are held up by German machine gun fire the tanks are called
upon. There arc large numbers of these, all along the front, and
( icmiiyi resistance to them' appears to be hopeless.
In Flanders the British continue to drive the Germans back
along the edges of the Lys salient. Yesterday the Tommies attack
ed and carried all the outpost positions of the enemy on the Dranmt
tre ridge between Kouderkot and Locrc-Hospice, southwest of
. pres. These appear to be preliminary operations for an attack
upon the Germans holding the famous Mount Kemmel positions.

BRITISH ADVANCE EASTWARD
Further north the British eastward advance in the famous Lys
sector hrins the new positions appreciably nearer to the old 1V16
line, running east to Arnicntiercs. General I laic's armies arc still ,
pressing forward between Albert and Arras. Innumerable tanks
arc clearing the way for the advance and making artillery prcpara-
tious lc-s necessary.
The Allied drives thus extend from Ypres to Soissons and may '. ,
make necessary a speedy entire realignment of the eneuiv forces.

right wmg iti the N.oyon salient, to the east of the ( )ise. Laval was '.
taken and the I'oilus arrived at I'ommicres, two miles northwest of .
Soissnns, capturing several thousand prisoners. ( )ne army corps -alone
More than twenty villages have been captured since Tuesday
morning and the advance extends to a full live miles in some places. ;
These advances liave brought the French to the Plateau to the north

The advance has resulted in the capture of Lassigny and extended -until
the French line hofds the outskirts of Chiry and Ourscamp to
the southwest of Npyon.
IMPORTANT FRENCH GAINS

General Mangin's infantry which is unremitting.
"JJctween Lassigny and the Oisc the enemy has been pressed
back to the heights overlooking Divotte while the French advancing
from the west have reached the outskirts of Plcmont."
