German Advance pushed strong mm nd bricks thrown .
Objectives of Enemy Not Yet Dis
closed and Foch Still Holds
Reserves In Readiness
NF.W YORK, June 1 ( ssociatcd Press I--Accompany ine, an
n"uinl statement from the Allied central staff at Genera!
Fu'Vi's headquarters that full c infidciu e is felt that the tide of the
(ifrnuii drive in the Champagne will soon turn, is another that the
( icrnian advance has reached the Marne along a ten-mile front and
has turned westward, in the direction nf Paris.
The tip of the German advance towards the Trench capital is
now at Chateau Thierry, fifty miles northeast of the -city and nl
t.ventv miles from the hightide of the German Invasion in I'M 4.
While the correspondent of Renter at French headquarters re
ports that the Germans reached the Marne with the momentum of
their drive south unspent, the l'.ritish and French are still holding
the sides of the salient strongly, unierotrs desperate efforts oi
the Crown Prince to widen his positions along the Aisne hae been
thrown back, although the French line both north and smith of
Soissons has heeti withdrawn some and the fate of Kheims i un
know n.
Contradictory despatches regarding the situation at the cathe
dral citv come from Paris and London. )n high military authority
the London correspondent of the Associated Press states that it i
almost a certainty that Kheims ha fallen. Paris, on the other hand
announces the British line covering that city to be still intact, will
a successful counter having driven the Germans out of Thillois
southwest of Kheims.
The most significant item of the many from the battle-front is
an official statement from French headquarters that General l oci
has not yet brought his reserves into the action.
The (lerman efforts to secure greater elbow room and to widei.
the gap between Pinon and P.rimont, through which now forty divi
sums have poured brought vicious assaults against the French hold
ing the line M the Ailette River, south of laon, the French with
drawing their advanced lines but maintaining their hold upon the
main positions. Paris reports all the German efforts to adva'ief
west along the right bank of the Ailette were repulsed and that tin
situation on this Hank remained unchanged throughout the day.
despite heavy Jernian efforts, persisted in the face of severe losses
The situation northwest of Kheims. where the liritish are hold
ing positions along the Aisne Canal, is likewise unchanged. Here
as on the opposite flank, the Germans attacked persistently.
The Ixmdon reports are by no means so optimistic as those frotr
Faris, the' fall of Kheims being practically conceded in the Pritisl
capital. If that position has been captured, as London appears t
believe, it is expected that the Germans will push eastward tmvan'
Ft. Menehould, forcing the Allied line to he withdrawn to the soutl
and thus extending the salient as the Germans must have it extend
ed to be able to consolidate their gains with any degree of safety
to sav nothing of extending their advance.
While the Germans have forty known divisions south of tin
Soissons-Kheims line, a total of nearly oOO.OCO men. they are kuowi
to have in reserve north of that line and available for quick usi
at any point another force of forty three division-,. ,,r marly (od.fXX
men. This situation creates anxiety.
Despatches from the general staff, announced in London last
night, state that it is not as yet made certain whether the German
mam attack is not to he made against the western line, for anothei
drive upon the Channel ports and another great ctYm i t.. separate tin
French and liritish armies. This may acemmt for the failure o
General Foch to bring his own reserves into th Champagne battle
It may be his foreknowledge that they vv II l.c needed mote alonp
the line of Picardy and Artois.
The Paris despatches state that German light f. .rces hav
reached the Marne between ( harteves and laulgotine and havi
vvung to the west, their advance troops being now engaged before
Chateau Thierry. An attempt to pus I: the flank vvln.h runs ,
Chateau Thierry through Missy, just east m . nnv, further tc
west, Which would bring it south of Soissmis and admit of an at
flick against the French there from two sides, was icpiil.sed. Reu
