COUNTERS BEATEN BACK
Heavy Gerjnan counters, suc

been beaten back in some particu
larly .bloody fighting west of
Cambrai and the British are now
firmly installed in the dominating

counters, which had been
made on the jyioeuvres sector n
Thursday, were finally defeated
yesterday, when Scottish troops
overcame the Germans and coin-,

positions they had regained. I
North and northwest of St.
(Juentiu, where the German resis

where the foe is putting up a
