WASHINGTON, September 14 (Associated Press) The St.
W Mihiel salient, the last German wedge into the Allied line
in France, was obliterated bythe Americans on Thursday and yes- j
terday. Smashing from the south and west in overwhelming force, 1
General Pershing forced the withdrawal of the main German con-'
tingents in such a precipitoua fashion that twelve thousand remained
behind as prisoners m American hands, great quantities of supplies
and munitions were abandoned and the Huns had no opportunity to
lay waste the country as is their habit in retreat.
Last night the battle was continuing fiercely along . the new j
front which parallels the German border closely, the Germans re- (
sisting strongly while the American battalions crowd them closer ;
and closer to the border line. Prisoners are still being taken in large
numbers and are streaming through the fighting ranks of the Amer-,
icans to the rear. Among the prisoners taken are several hundred
Austrians, their presence among the captured being the first authen
tic knowledge the American soldiers had that Austrians were among
the forces opposing them. The number of prisoners counted last
night totalled thirteen thousand three hundred.
When night fell on Thursday, with French and American tanks
at Vigneulles, on the very center of the Balient in the rear of St.
Mihiel, and with American cavalry operating in the same region, it
was a question whether the Germans between the line of the Amer
ican drives and the tip of the salient would be able to extricate them
selves at all. Through Sacrificing several thousand of their men,
who held rearguard positions with machine guns until wiped out. '
and by not attempting to save or destroy great quantities of sup-1
plies, the Germans managed to escape with the greater number of :
their guns, the Americans taking only sixty of these in the part :
of the salient they have occupied. ,
The French, who launched an attack on the tip of the salient,
contemporaneously with the American drives against both sides,
captured the town of St. Mihiel and the Roman fort south of it,
taking a number of prisoners and guns. They found, in entering
the town, as did the Americans throughout the greater part of the
salient, that the places had been damaged only slightly, the usual
signs of vandalism being absent. 1
Most important of all. it lias Wen found that the enemy ecti
left the railroad line intact, none of the bridges across the deep
ravines beinf; destroyed. This main railroad runs from Nancy

innt without the heretofore wide detour necessary between Nancy
and Verdun.
All reports from France agree that the American blow ha- re
suited in uniptalihed success. All objectives were gained and a bin
administered that puts the Germans on the defense alon their own
border on a section which has heretofore been marked by the bl.od
iest of German offensives.
flicials here believe that the elimination of the salient is only
the beinnin of bigger operations and may be made the cornerstone
for a reat encircling movement intended to isolate Metz, which is
the center buttress of the German line from the North Sea to Switz
erland. The strategic importance of General Pershing's victory is out of
proportion to the territory won and the forces involved. Not onlv
is the Allied line reduced on this front from one of forty miles to one
of twenty, but the great force which it has been found neeessarv to
hold along this front for the defense of Verdun may now be re
leased for action elsewhere, the obliteration of the southern salient
removing the menace to the city and fortress.
