NAZI WEST FRONT
ATTACK REPULSED
___
(Continued From Page One)
of the western front, where it bends
west from the Rhine and runs to the
Luxembourg frontier.
The sparsely worded high com
mand communique referred to the
action as a “quite important sur
prise attack,” indicating it was con
siderably larger than the recent lo
cal skirmishes between advance
posts and patrols in this sector.
Since yesterday artillery fire has
been increasing along the entire
sector between the Rhine and Mo
selle rivers.
However, military observers warn
ed against attaching undue impor
tance either to the cannonading or
to the surprise' Nazi foray.
The artillery fire, apparently heav
iest in the Biles valley just east
of the sector where the Germans at
tacked, covered the area farther to
the east betwreen the Blies and Vos
ges mountains as well as the Mo
selle valley, some 50 miles to the
west.
