It is now established that there
were between ninety and a hun

f i a
AGAINST LAON
fARIS, Septemher 15 (Asso
fT ciated Press) General foch,
tn accordance with li Is policy of
not permitting the Germans a
breathing space within which to
iesf, has now followed the St. Mi
hiel victory by launching an at
tack along the bend in the line
around Laort, with such success
that the 1'rench last night were
within a mile in places and two
miles in others of those vital posi
tions which the Germans must re
tain if they are to remain in con-
I
Iter.
With the St. Mihiel tension
lessened, attention is now cen
tered upon the French drive along
the Aisne-Ailette front. Petain's
advance here, if it continue, will
soon compel another German re
treat along a wide front. From
the direction in which tlis latest
drive is being made, it is evident
ly Foch's plan to render the Che
mihs des Dames line untenable.
The French began their new at
tack at dawn on both sides of the
Ai'.-tte River between the Aisne anil
Ine Vesle in the direct! ,u of the Forest
of Coucy at the southern end of the
St. Gobuin massif, the drive making
satisfactory progress. The attack was
mad alotfg a front of eleven miles,
gaining an average of more thun a
mile ami reaching a maximum of two
miles in placer.
Na Town Taken
South of the AiNtte Kiver the
French have tnkeu Mont Disiages mid
the villHge of Alleiuont and Sancy
and have reached the edge of the
town o' Vpilly, on the north batik of
the Aisne east of Soissous.
The attack was launched at five in
tbe morning and one French division
at nn early hour reported having taken
a thousand prisoners, while other divi
sions announced a total of eight hun
dred before noon. The Germans coun
tered repeatedly during tire day, but
their attacks were weak although their
