On the Atniena front, in the Scfmme Valley, the Allies haVe re

, HjlLs, south of Haggard, and all the jiigJiUduminating the groynd
oyer which tle Germans must now' advance at Leplemont, Grives-

The vastly increased intensify, in, the-German bpnbardment
of some sections of the Allied frorit apd the appearance of much
i U'P.V numb.era of German aircrat oyer, the lines indicate that jh'e
expected resumption of the general assault is at liand. The German
guns are directing a hurricane fire against the British at Albert,
against the Franco-British forces,' on' the south side of the Armen
tieres salient, along both banks pf the Lye, and against the Franco
Americans on the Avre jn the Amiens, sector.
i Reports to French headquarters also announce that the Ger
mans are now carrying, out a redistribution of their forces along
the whole front. The movement of troops in the rear of the Jines
Li especially heavy. They have organized a special railway service
and the excellent communication arjf enabling them to move great
'masses of troops in forty-eigh hours preceding a new attack., '
