IN THE FRENCH FRONT IN

ecuted local action carried out by the
French to-day southeast of Amiens not

dominating the region between the
rivers Avre and Moreuil and the Noye,

More than 500 German officers and
men already captured have been senl

The artillery preparation precedinf
the attack was brief, but it was of i
powerful character and the aim of the
gunners was so accurate that when thi
infantry went over they found tht
trees in the small woods abounding ir
this vicinity reduced to matchwood.
The Germans had laid a widespreac
network of barbed wire in these wood:
and the shells had blown the win
into a great tangle, making the prog

French troops, however, overcame th<
almost impassable obstacles by gal

Frenchmen advanced at some places t<
a depth of 2,000 yards along a fron
extending for nearly five miles. Th?
village of Castel first fell before thi
dashing attack, Anchin Farm next sue
cumbed and Groshetre Wood am
Brouettes Wood followed. Then Billo
Wood was captured. All these posi
tions were taken despite the most de
termined opposition of the enemy, wh
seemed firmly decided to hold the po

The feat of the French troops wa
all the more remarkable as, betwee

Further southwest, in the Caucasus,

The enemj plans in Russia are said
to be chiefly economic. Germany and

objective in Finland, where the Kaiser
aims to capture the extreme northern

operations against these ports and the ;
surrounding country held at present by

Rainy Night Is

Americans on Marne
(By The Axfiociated Press)
WITH. THE AMERICAN ARMY IN
FRANCE, July 13.?On the fronts in
the Marne district held by American
troops last night was the endetest of
any since the Germans, in their sweep
southward, were stopped sit the north
bank of the river. In some sections
not a single German shell came over,
while in others the artillery fire was
far below lhe normal.
It has rair.ed every day for the last
four days in this region, with the re?
sult that the fields and roads are sticky
and wet, and unfavorable for marching
or fighting. This fact may have had
something to do with holding back the
expected German offensivot. At the

the advantage of the Americans, for

LONDON, July IS.?Despite heavy
showers in the last few days, the Ger?
mans seem about ready to open their
great summer battle- their most pow?
erful and determined blow in the 1918
campaign. Ludendorff wants to score
a knockout and a quick decision.
France is likely to feel the full
weight of the great German army,
which has undergone complete reorgan?
ization during the last month. Where
will the blow fall? It seems a safe
guess to select Paris as the German
If this guess proves correct there
is likely to be a resumption of activi?
ties south of Montdidier and possibly
east of Rheims. That Ludendorff will se?
lect a sector unassailed hitherto in this
campaign seems probable, which would
place the chief attack somewhere be?
tween Rheims and Verdun, with possi?
ble subsidiary drives between Mont?
didier and the Marne.
Moving Forces Southward
Recent Allied raids, of which there
have been a great number, have shown
the enemy holding their lines north \
of the Aisne very lightly. There have
been indications of movement south?
ward in the last fortnight. Political
reasons dictate a German effort against
Paris. Although events have disproved
the frequent forecast of a renewal of
the German attack, there seems no
doubt that this time a great blow is
imminent. Foch will not be caught
napping, and the enemy will meet stiff
obstacles, whatever road to Paris he
Because Ludendorff will attack re
gardles-* of the initial cost, it is well
to be prepared for enemy advances j
during the first days. Either side is
bound to win ground under the pres?
ent system of offence and defence.
The anxious question to both sides is i
the developments after the first shock; '
to the Allies, whether they can find
the "dead point" of the attack and
check the whole movement; to the
enemy, wnere they can exploit their '
Tanks are almost certain to play an
important part in the new battle. The
German system of attack consists of
a short, heavy bombardment, then a
quick thrust by storm troops in eche
ion formation, machine and light field
gu?ns being used to widen the salient, j
Foe Using Big Tanks
Recent fighting has shown the Ger?
mans employing more tanks, great
ponderous monsters, armed with heavy
guns and clusters of machine guns.
In the new attacks the enemy is likely
to uncover many of these highly mo?
bile batteries. Against them .will be
pitted French mosquito tanks.sort of
a David and Goliath combat, with, it
is hoped, similar results.
Germany lost many of her finest
storm troops on the Somme, the Lys
and the Maine; that is one reason why
the enemy has been so slow in launch?
ing his summer campaign. Ludendorff
is certain to throw in his best at the
outset, and the real test will come
when the Allies encounter his second
rate divisions, those needed to exploit
the initial gains.
Germany begins the new phase with
markedly inferior oir force. Early in
the battle the Allies' superiority is
likely to become apparent. Britain has
developed this branch of fighting
amazingly in the last few months,
while American airmen have advanced

will be renewed as soon as the offen

the situation, it can be stated posi?
tively that the Allied high command

LONDON, July 13.?American wound?
ed are now arriving in London in con- ?
siderable numbers from the sections of j
France where the Americans are bri- !
gaded with the British. They reach '
the various main line stations on Brit- j
ish hospital trains, together with the I
hundreds of British wounded with ?
which the trains are laden.
The American soldiers are receiving i
the best of care and are be\ng visited
by American women members of a com?
mittee formed to look after them as
soon as the hospital authorities give
their permission. Most of the Ameri?
can cases arriving in London are classi- i
fled as serious. About one-fourth of !
the men received their wounds while

in London are of the latest type and
usually accommodate four men.

evenings it has been often possible to \
see American soldiers lying at the side
of English, Australian and Canadian
Tommies, all cheerfully smoking cigar?
As soon as the American patients
reach the hospital their pi rival is re?
ported to the American Army Medical
Service and to the American Red Cross.
It is expected that as soon as the
American authorities take o- er the two
London hospitals which the American
Red Cross recently announced were to
be used exclusively for American
wounded, most of these men will be
transferred from the nospitals they
are in at. present to a hospital which
has a staff of American doctors and
nurses. Two new American hospitals,
located in the London suburbs, will be
taken over within a fortnight.
