Floods Which 'swept down the
'iave River have caught the Aus
rians in a trap. Their bridges
iave been swept away and their
ommuntcation with their main
orces ahd reserves beyond have
een severed. Yesterday, in this
light, they suffered immense
losses before the strong counters
which the Italians launched
against thein.
How costly has been this at
tempted offensive to Austria is
shown by the estimates of enemy
los$es which were received in
Paris last night in an official com
nuniqiie from Rome which placed
iiich casualties at 120,000. The
ustrian pressure still continued
it Mnhtcllo but was less severe,
he night communiiiue contiriued,
'.ut the advance had been check
id at every point along the hun-Ired-mile
front. At Dona di Piave,
to the southeast of Zenzon the foe
attacked heavily launching no less
than five attacks during the day,
all resultirtg in repulses. The hold
ing at Montello was regarded as
weakening the very keystone of
all plans.
Austria's official report of the
day's results is a tacit admission
that the offensive has been check
ed and turned into a defensive for
it merely claims that "all enemy
assaults have broken down."
American aviators have seen
their first service with the Ital
ians and have scored an initial
success. C)n Thursday they were
sent on a bombing detail and
blew two holes through a bridge
i (he
foe had. thrown over the
Piave, all returning to the base.
