holds against the heavy and continu
ous artillery fire from the eastern
bank of the river where the Austro-j
Germans are crossing the stream.'
These efforts have not taken the
proportion of a general movement, but'
several battalions crossed the river on
pontoons near Zenson. The Italian I
artillery concentrated its fire on the
raiding parties and either destroyed
them in mid-stream or pushed them
back on the river bank.
The fighting here was desperate and
sanguinary. Men who have returned
from the batteries along the Piave say
the German fire Is extremely heavy,
but from middle caliber guns. Chief
attention now is directed toward the
eastern sector of the Trentino front,
where it appears to be the hope of the
Lencmy to divide the troops on the
Asiago Plateau from those In the up

The enemy is making preparations
which are considered a prelude to a
heavy attack in the valley of the
