British and French Troops Repulse
Assaults Around Rheims, and
French Reserves Help Hold Back
Centre of the German Advance.
PARIS, Mny 30. The Allies arc holding Cac Germans at all
point on the Aitne front. In Flanders the British troops com
pletely repulsed a strong German attack northwest of Festubcrt.
It in announced by the French War Office that tho battle
alonr; the Aisnc front continued nil night, with the French main
taining the western outlets of Soissons. Northwest of Rheims the
Franco-British forces broke all the German assaults and main
tained the defensive positions.
In the centre of the German advanre fighting is taking place
in the neighborhood of Ve7illy (approximately eighteen miles
south of the Chcmin ties Dames, where the German attack vns
launched on Mnndny).
French reserve nr continuing (o arrive on the front and
the German advance is being resisted with great tenacity.
The Germans made repeated attempts to brock through the
French defense in thn Soissons region, but were each time held
up by the determined French resistance.
The Germans have been obliged to leave their guns on the
northern side if Ihe original line, which can be crossed only a? a
certain number of points which arc highly vulnerable to Allied
airplanes. The enemy is thus prevented from reaping the full
benefits of his rapid advance.
I lie si.itui of Un- ItciicIi at I lie western iiJc of Soissons sliows an
cneeiiir.iojn.s' sliilfniti of Hie resistance ana" partly compensates for the
Ins:, nf the m.iin n.irt of Hie town, the evacuation of u-IiL-h wis .11..
noiiihvil last nielli. Neillirr this loss, the retirement of the British forces
toward Khriiii.s, mu the German claim ol 25,000 prioiier has duutited
the Allies. The lollovWni; scmi-ollieial note was isueJ to-J.iy:
"Toe Germans .i-iin progressed yesterday, nut while, on out
hand, tliey failed lo pierce our lines, on the other it ivcoiiifortinjj to
ol)5eive that their march was slackened considerably by Hie arrival
ol our reserves.
"As Ihese come into pluy the balance will gradually be restored
and soon the German flood will be dammed.
"The French command retains undiminished confidence, based,
as it is, on the power of our resouices and the Incomparable, valor of
TWO MAIN OIUECTS OF THE DlilVE.
As Hie battle pioceeds I lie enemy's purpose become; plain. It is
b'irst of all, eighteen miles south of Hie Veale flows tlie Marne,
whi.:h forms with Hie Oi'e one of the great avenues of approach to
I '.iris. Sm'i lis CJUfM' runs Hie Clnlons Railroad, Ihe main eastern ar
tery. To j;ain a looting in Hie Marne Valley, or even 1.1 approach within
artillery ranjje of ii, would be an appreciable result. Thai is sulTicicnt to
show why the German; continue to push southward so vigorously.
I heir advance there yesterday amounted to only J 1-2 miles, as ajjaint
5 I-.? nu Ihe lirsl da ol the attack and seven on the second. This indi.
rah", the Kiowin;; force of jhe oposition which the enemy is en
counteriiiK. Ihe sereind nbjctiive, which the German staff considers even mora
import jut, jiiilKins by Ihe ellorts made at Soissons, is to broaden Ihe
jient lo the westward. Ily enlaruint; the action there Hie German
Crown I'rince intends lo approach nearer lo Paris on the direct route.
The French command is lolly aware of the importance of this move
ment. Ithoui;h Soissons was evacuated lo prevent needless sacrifice of
I men. the French hold all the roads leading out of the town.
