Thumbnail for

Paris. The Germans are continu
ing their efforts to break through the
allied cordon to "attack Dunkirk, the
the vicinity of Dixmude and Roulers.
A series of assaults in force were de
livered by the Germans, but, accord
ing to military headquarters here, all
failed.
There are significant rumors of im
pending trouble for the Germans in
the north through a -bold stroke on
the part of the allies. Reports are
current here that the allies have been
able to land a strong force either at
or near Ostend under the guns of the
British fleet. If this should turn out
to be true the Germans will be men
aced by an attack from their rear.
There is, however, absolutely no confirmation.
Fighting without definite result
continues at Courtrai, in the vicinity
of Lille, and along the Lys river and
the La Basse canal.
Petrograd. Official statements de
clare that the Germans are continu
ing their efforts to cross the Vistula
river at several points despite heavy
losses. At no point, says the state
ment, have they succeeded. The Rus
sians are declared to be advancing
steadily although slowly on the War-saw-Ivangorod
front, driving the Ger
mans before them. According to a
statement published in the Army Ga
zette some 18,000 German dead, left
on the field by the retreating Ger
mans, were buried by the Russians.
The war office states that the Ger
man right wing, which is extended in
to GaTieia, has been making deter
mined attacks in co-operation with
the Austrians but it is claimed that
at no point has the enemy succeeded
in gaining any distinct advantage.
The AustrianB have attempted to
cross the San river, only to be re
pulsed with heavy losses, while 15
Austrian officers and 1,000 soldiers
have been taken prisoners.
London. Although several of the
morning newspapers have reports
that Ostend has been re-occupied by
main, objective of the present cam
paign. Reports received today tell of
heavy fighting through last night in
the Belgians at the Belgian legation
and at the British press bureau, it
was stated they were without any in
formation whatever on the subject.
