Eaemy Halted At Mount Kemmel, Is Rein
' forciog-Abaodoning of Sector Said
To Be
NKW YORK, April 28-( Associated Press) Whether Or "n,t
the Allies will attempt to longer hold the Ypres salient will
soon he decided. German possession of Mont Kemmel continues
to threaten and further thrusts are expected when Hun reinforce
ments are brought up. The line to the south is strong and the
Ypres salient is the point which is watched with the deepest anxiety.
Yesterday there was something: of a lull in the terrific battle
that has raged in that sector. The artillery fire was heavy but the
Germans ceased for the time being to irplt great waves of infantry
against the British. Reports last night 'said the enemy had been
bought to a standstill at Mont Kemmel.' ln other sectors of the
WKtern frojit the British and French scored successes and regained
me fifth ground they had lost in the earlier fighting.
While there was a diminution of infantry activity in the Ypre
s; bent yesterday the intensity of the German artillery fire was tcr-riii'-
and .an intense bombardment of the Allied positions before
Mont Kcnimel continued throughout Jthe day and far into the night
the sky was illumined by the flares from bursting shells.
The British and the French were meantime steadily strengthen
ing their positions and putting to good advantage the breathing
spell which was afforded by the absence of infantry attacks. The
(iermans were busy consolidating their forces in preparation for
a new drive against the hills to' the west of' Mont Kemmel where
the Allied forces are preparing to make, their nextv stand. The
tremendous losses which the Huns have suffered in their massed
attacks upon the British have compelled them to pause and to bring
up reinforcements before "undertaking any further assaults.
It is this expected attack which will determine whether or not
the Allies will continue the battle for the Ypres salient or will fall
further back and take up new position's which have been prepared
for such an emergency as confronts them. It is to the west of Mont
Kemmel this terrific thrust is expected antf it is an admitted pos
sibility that it may not be awaited. Many are predicting a with
drawal by the British. '
Some idea of the magnitude of the effort which has been exerted
by the Germans can be formed' from the estimated numbers which
they employed. It is said they used on the ten thousand-yard salient
from llrancour to Ypres and the Comines canal ten full army divi
sions. The losses they sustained were' enormous and it is to recover
from those losses by the bringing up of new reserves that the lull
of yesterday was permitted. - nw '?'' ' " ' ' ' '"

there was much artillery fire indicating that the lull is only tem
Berlin issued an official report on the.Jiy's battling which said
hat "the enemy vainly attempted to retake Mont Kemmel. At

The position of the breakwater nt

At times, it wrs stated by th Maui

storms play havoc with the port,. and
it is necessary at times to -take ves
