July 27 ( Associated A flay oi tne Allies counter oncnsive mere appeared 10 lie some lessening in tbe intensity and the violence of the combat although the day was marked by some desperate fighting on Various sectors ofJ the Soissons-Rheims salient and the pinchers that are being aplie't by General Foch tightened their grip on the1 mouth of the Sack in which is enmeshed the army 6f General von Boehhi. ' Big guns are being brought upon the plateau which dominates' fere en Tardenois preparatory to the taking of that position. These dominating heights were taken yesterday morning. ' I While the Germans are not yet attempting a gerteraf retreat the fact that they are depending chiefly on their tmacRihe guns to re tard the advance of the Allies indicates that a retreat js purposed. IMPORTANT GAINS MADE ' j The entire German position within "the 'Ma'rhe salient is such that it may fall at any instant as the result of a sharp, forward Allied movement of yesterday morning and therefor, the German command has ordered the retention of present positions' regardless of losses until new defensive positions can be prepared for the pur-' posed retirement. This situation has been brought about by tke rapture of Villemontoire and Ouelch le Chateau " which give trie Allies the heights which dominate Fere en Tardenois arid make the fail of that t)sition imminent, thus further narrowing the mouth of the pocket to about fifteen miles across. ' HUNDREDS OF PRISONERS In these engagements several hundred prisoners were taken be sides four hundred cannon of various calibers and stores of muni tions, the new positions giving an immense strategic advantage. With the expected capture of Fere en Tardenois the required ralijte of the Allied batteries will be further decreased and the greater part of the pocket will be at all times subjected to a racing artillery fire that will mean death or surrender.

A neHv army, commanded by General vbri Eben has taken' up its position between the armies of Generals von Boehin and von Suttier. GERMANS COUNTER HARD Thus reinforced the Germans countered heavily to the south west of Rheims and made some gains. The Allies in. these counters lost the town of Mery and Hill 204 but "they still hold Marfaux, J3ouil1y, Ste. Euphrasie and the Courton Woods, Between the Ourcq and Chateau Thierry the Franco-American forces have advanced six miles beyond the positions which they held a week ago. German retreat to the Vesle River , is forecast in a I lavas des patch to LaLiberte. This message said that theemy's stores wef-e, burning arid' von Boehm must retreat speedily J 6r face certain dis aster.' To the south of the Ourcq there were only artillery engage ments, the night official reports. To the southwest of Rheims sev eral advances were made. GERMAN RESERVE FORCES ARE NERRING EXHMJStlOtl f ONDOX, Julv 27 (Associated JLfwhat the Germans captured on July 15 remains in their hand$ and much of what they held previously has been taken from therti, reports the Reuters correspondent in messages received at an early hour this morning. In the Soissons Rheims battle, he says, the Germans have usdd sixty-five army divisions which have been terribly shattered thils exhausting all of the reserves of the Crown Prince. The only re maining reserves available for Germany are thirty army divisiorls .which are with the armies of Ruprecht. i Thus the German osition has been rendered most uncomfort able but he does not consider that it is absolutely Untenable arid Jelieves it is no worse than the position in which the British fouild themselves in the Ypres salient last spring. ' Copies of orders which have been taken from Germ.m prisoners show that the German command had ordered a retreat on the first day that the Allies attacked but later this was found to be imprac ticable because of the pinched salient. It was then that the ordefs issued that positions should be held as long as possible and.sinde that time the efforts of von Boehm's forces have been directed to holding back the Allies. '.
