Allied aeroplanes bombarded Herman

valuable reconnaissance work. Twenty
Fokkers attacked the Hrltl-h aeroplanes
engaged In one of the raids, but were
driven off by the llrltlih escorting ma

Were brought down. Three of the Hrltlsh
machines are reported missing. JtrltMt
kite balloons remained In the air all day
directing the tire of the Hrltlsh artillery.

An Intimation or the plans of the
allied commanders for a steady pounding
of the German line rather than any
effort at a spectacular assault Is con
tained In a senil-nmcl.il statement Issued
In Paris to-day. This statement, re

At several points the advance has cov

Allies Id to extend their lines over the

to-day admits the withdrawal of 11 Ger
man division under piessurc of the Hrlt

trenches to positions previously prepared
for the defence of the second and third
Unas. The abandonment of material

of this country for an offensive mtit
have nurprired the Germans. The blow
must have struck them where they least
expected It. He visited the area when
the Hrltlsh took It over from the Fiench

not to be supposed thut the Germans
gave our troops an easy chance. Their
