' , From Fere-tnTardenoia' northwest to Buzancy, a distance of u-n miles, (the entire German line ipf yesterday morning has been blotted out and the Germans driven back along the north hank of the Ourcq from " the easterly salietjt they had managed to' retain until this last drive. " From Fere to Hartenne the Allies now have a straight front, their gains giving hem nnich valuable ground from which' to launch their, flanking movement against Soissons, whicn appears to be the logical next step, ' The Germans have lost tremendously, being without artiilcrvl to resMjnd to the steady hail of shells which deluged their rear posi tions or to check the Allied tanks. IMPORTANT, GAINS MADE Last evening American forces with nritish and French troops were fighting a severe battle north of tbe Ourcq in the center of the salient-it is reported in the night despatches from Paris. In the course of the day's fighting in this sector the Allies took Grand Rozoy to the northwest of Fere-en-Tardenpis. Thence they proceeded on to, Plessiere Wood where the combatants locked in the tightest of trrios. The heiirht tothe north of Grand Rozov where thev had annroached to within five I'a.oches about three miles west of Fismes, the junction joint on the only railroad that is left to the Germans as a means of exit from this salient. Aerial observers reported that the Germans were in precipitate flight from Launoy, midway between Soissons and Fere en I anlcnois. FORTIFIED WOODS CLEARED The attack started in the morning with large numbers of tanks -iving important aid and a heavy .barrage from the Allied batteries. dvancing with machine guns the Allies quickly cleared the forti fied woods, thickets and villages.

The German withdrawal toward the Vesle River is progressing in full swing, it was reported in the night communique from the nierican front. This followed an American thrust into the center of the enemy line at Seringes. AMERICANS PRESS, ONWARD The enemy is clinging1, with a force, horn of sheer, desperation to their strongholds at Nesle and Hois Meuniere to the northeast ..f Kocheres but the Americans have. gained a hold on the northern end of Meuniere Wood. The Nesle fores't is under the American, nuns and the Germans are rushing up reinforcements with tanks in the protection "of those positions so that severe counters are anti cipated. The heavy guns of the American batteries are pounding Meu niere Woods unmercifully. Observers and prisoners report that iliese woods are jammed with German forces and stored with great ipiantitics of supplies. The German losses must be very great. Their l.ailied wiri defenses' have been completely blasted away by the incrican shell fire which has thrown explosive shells by the thou aiul and ripped and torn their positions to pieces. Northeast of Sergy, after a battle of an hour, the American I v attillery was brought up and now commands Chamery, north i .i t of Sergy.
