TROOPS COM Dn Three Important Sectors They Have Been' Compelled to Give Up Positions of Great Value Under Attacks of the British and French Troops. OF HUES, CPy the Associated Press) The Germans on three important sectors of the -western battle front have been compelled tc give up posi tions of great strateiric value under ilie onslaughts of the British and Trench troops. In the Lys sector west of Armen t.eres the enemy has retreated over a front of nearly six miles, leaving I he town of Merville in British hands. I'ctween the Matz and Oise rivers the French have fought their way to the vrestern outskirts of the dominating position of Lassrgny and further south in this hill and wooded region have debouched from the Thiescomt wood and also captured the town of Pim prcz, situated in the Oise valley on the Noyon-Compiegne road. Around the curve in the battle line ronhwest of Soissons the French from rear Carlepont to Fontenoy on the Aisne. a distance of approximately rme miles, have driven back the en- my to an average depth of more tnan a mile and captured several vil 1:. pes nnd 2.210 prisoners. Unofficial reports record the capture by the British of the railway station on the western outskirts of the im rortant town of Rove, one of the pivp '.1 points on the battle front between ii:c nmme and the Oise, but there no official confirmation of this. Viewed on the war maps, the gains in the new operations- are most im portant ones for the allies, for. aside irorn wide areas over which the enemy has been compelled to acknowledge tlofe.it. the weakening in the German defence is becoming daily more notice able an 1 apparently within a short time they probably will be forced to i Trrmeni e a retrosrade movement on stale that will mean the entire blot ting out of old lines and the taking up of new ones to tne east ana bouui east possibly from the region of Rheims to Ypres. The Lvs salient is fast fading away under the attacks of the British and the voluntary retirement of the Ger mans to new defence positions east-, ward, and seemingly the big west erly bulge into the allied line between pres and La Bassee soon muse ais- appear. Under the new gains or tne .Brit ish around Roye, and particularly those made by the French from Las signy to the Oise valley and north west of Soissoss, the Germans now are in a bad predicament. Here their positions are dominated by the allied guns from the west, southwest and south for many miles, and apparent ly a retreat eastward across the plains of Picardy and over the Somme, and even from the western Aisne, will be necessitated. The latest German official communi cation asserts that French attacks between the Oise and Aisne, delivered over a wide front, failed, hiit the French war office statement is speci fic in announcing the penetration of the environs of Lassigny, the cutting of a passageway through the Thies court Wood and the capture of Pim prez. That there has been hard fight ing, however, is indicated by the Brit ish official statement, which says that northwest ot Chaulnes the Germans succeeded in penetrating the British line at several points but later were Driven out. Additional American troops arrived last week in Vladivostok to aid the other international troops in their op cration against the Bolshevik and i German forces in Siberia.'

Aug. 16 (By The Associated Press). General Dieterichs,. the commander of the Czecho-Sloval forces, in pointing out today the great odds his troops are facing, estimated the enemy strength at 40,000 men, with 70 guns and 200 machine guns. The status of the Czecho-Slovaks in Trans baikalia is unknown, he said, but it certainly must be desperate. . To at tain the object sought by the entente allied governments, a substantial force must be sent to the Manchurian front. Dr. Yaromir Spacek, a member of tke Czecho-Slovak national council, has left for Washington to acquaint Prof. T. G. Masaryk, the president of the council, with the situation of the Czecho-Slovaks. Dr. Cpacektold the correspondent that the Czecho-Slovaks will abide by the decision fo Professor Msaryk as to whether they shall pro ceed to France, which is their anvbi- tion, or stay in Russia to fight the enemy, if given adequate support. Opinion on all sides appears to be that the allied governments are under estimating the magnitude of the task o iliberating the Czecho-Slovaks and do not realize the necessity of actual warfare against superior numbers.
