NEW YORK, May 4 (Associated Press) Frustrated in their
efforts in the North, to break tlinnih the Allied lines ami
1'.' to matte their way to the Channel Ports, disappointed in their fail'
: ore before Ypres, the Germans yesterday turned their attention
ia i the south side of their salient hut met with no success and were
.. unable to score any advance in the day's fighting in that direction.
' ; Heav bombardments by the Germans were reported from sev
erat Sectors and only on the south side of the salient was there any
indication of the, point or points against which the expected next
phase of the offensive would be directed. - ;
'" - : , &mnt:ipa.IlaTi1iruM-k m-i lur 'there was reported a
'. ' " tremendous crescendo of artillery fire during the early part of the
' day. but i did not ptasage any concerted infantry assault as might
O have been expected. There was also heavy artillery fire reported

tm the Amiens front several German positions had Wen taken.
: On the main French front the day was comparatively quiet
and the French official iommunique said there were no infantry en
