counter maneuvers. At soie poillt
tihe (erm1-1an1s succeeded somewhat i

nowhere were they able to bring it to
're retirement. of the G ermans still
remaIns orderly, but everywhere Ilie
at1ll Iroops, anlld estpepelally the Aimler
lc; s near Fere-En-Tardenois, ar'
pres;'a t1em hard. Particularly hit
ter ri ting has taken place around
Fere-En-Tardenols and at Sergy, both
of which towns are now well In the
hands of tile French and Americans.
At Scigy the Germans paid the Amer
icans the coiiliment of reinforcing
their battleline with two divisions of
well-tr-ied Bavarilan troops, m1en whose
courage previously ld been tested,
when the tide of battle was going
agairst the Germans. -It was an effort
eithci to destroy the Americans or to
hurl them back across the Ou:eq. The
effort resulted In failure.
The battleline shifted back and forth
and Sergy changed hands four tIhes,
but the Americans proved to be the
masters of the picked enemy troops
and finally drove them out and re
tained the village. IHeavy casualties
were Inflicted on the Germans.
The fighting in Vere4Nu-Tairdenots
also was of a sanguinary character,
(he opposing forces fighting In close
contact through the streets of the
town, but vith the Germans being
gradually driven iback under lie ia
chine gun and rile fire and from coi
( tact' ith the cold sleet of the allIed
trlmedately south of Solasons on
the western edge of the salIent, the
Ooermans strove hierolealty to hiotld
back th'elr enemies, In order to pre
* vent the further flanking of Solssons
and the possible cuttIng off of large
forces of theIr men fightIng along th~e
Ourcq south of Oulchy-le-Chateau.
Scottish troo!)s, however, catutiredl
positlons in the outskIrts of Buizancy
just to the west of Solssons-Chateau
Thlierry road, while fur ther south the
French overcame the resistance im
posed( agaiinst them, crossed the hIgh
road and took Grand Rozoy and Cugny
and the Butte Chalmont.
Southeast of Soissons, weoll Inside
- the salIent and lit present far outsIde
' the inmmediate battle zone, various
towns and villages along the Solssons

cate that the retIrenient of thie Ger

still further northwvard biefore they<
inand to halt It, face about and give
"'ttle to the allied troops5 along a
