FRESH ALLIED GAINS OX ROAD TO BAPAU3IE 300 Yards of Kaiser's Line Taken West of Foureaux (High) Wood. London1, Aug. 17. After taking twinty-four hours to reorganize their broken lines the Germans mado six desperate counter attacks to-night upon the trenches the llrltlsh took from them northwest of Pozlcres on the Somme front yesterday. The Brit ish repulsed every one with big losses. So exhausted were the Germans on the Trench front that they ventured no attempts to recover the ground from the French. A strong British attack northwest,of IUntln-le-Pctlt. along lhi road to Uapaumc, was successful. Tho Brit tin captured about a hundred yards of Herman trenches. ThU success brings them nearer to the villages of Cour crlrtte and Martlnpulch. In the nituult yesterday tho llrltlsh captured 300 yards of German trenches wet of Foureaux wood referred to In llrltlsh reports as High wood charg ing 300 yards front their own trenches to do mi, the War OfUce reportetl.

The German otTtrlxl statement, tele graphed hero from llerlln. makes a half ienl.il of the British and French suc tcses of yesterday. It udmlts uut nnd cut only that the French gained JuO yards of trenches near Uelloy-on-San-terre. at the south of the Somme lino. About the gains west of tho High wood and sotith of Mnurepas It says "portion f the enemies' troops which penetrated cur positions were driven back again." During tho day the Germans at tempted an nttack on the trenches cast of Slouquet farm held by the Austra lians who captured Pozlcres In July. There Is a salient In the llrltlsh line here hlch to-day's attacks west nf the High wood were designed partly to straighten out. Tho Australians turned their ma chins guns on the advancing German lines rnd. as the report tays, "nipped th attack in the bud." On the French front In the Somme tn. 4y there was a lull nfter tho storm. Entirely undisturbed by the UMial t'oun tr attacks the Germans make when a rise has been cut out of their trenches, the French consolidated whut they gained yesterday. French In Strong Position.

This ofllcer said the French losses on the Soinme were no sherc near as great ns In the Artols n1 ('hamp.igno drives. "Never before havo the Germans fallM to react when successfully at tacked," said this officer, "and their failure to do so In this case Is either gn of weakness or, more likely, due to confusion of oiders.

Hitherto the Cardinals, following the Pope's example, have been preaching- and praying for peace at all their services, they have exhorted all the faithful to at tend tho functions of Intercession for an early peace.

Cardinal Ferrari, Archbishop of Milan, and other Cardinals holding; episcopal sees have publicly explained that the Catholic Church wants to see a lasting pence.

Soon after the war com menced the Pope permitted the Italian authorities tj recruit all but fifty of the HOSPITAL SHIP TO HEAL SULU TRIBES Rockefeller Foundation Fit ting Out Vessel for a Five Years Cruise.

Standard Oil officials said tho full ef fect of this crude oil production will be J over within two weeks and gasolene prices then will havo reached their minimum.
