approached 50,000,000 pounds. The ban

Saturday on a front of thirty-five
kilometers the Geimans withdrew
their lines in a crescent, extending
from the Ourcq River to the Ardre
River, before the tremendous pressure
the Trench and American troops had
exerted for the last five days.
Of the front of thirty-five kilometers
American troops hold nearly half.
The Marnn River Is now completely
re-lceared of Germans
Faturday's ad
vance by the Franco-American troops
was the greatest In importance since
last Sunday, when the Germans had
to get out of Chateau-Thierry and go
back across the Marne. and compares
favorably with the sensational gains
made when General Foch sprang his
surprise ten days ago. A sti iking Idea
of what our troops have done in the
last ten days Is ihown by the fact I
that from where one of our units i
I started around Belleau to where our
soldiers stooa yesteinay morning in

, a daily average advance of more than

Germans Reiiring on Vesle
The nature of the German with
drawal Saturday Indicated that they
did not contemplate a big stand on
the Ourcq River. Behind that line is
the Vesle River line, running almost
straight from Solssons to Rheims, and
It seems an opinion woith entertain
ing that the Germans now realize that
they have to get back to that front.
The Franco-American line yesterday
morning ran In front of a crescent
extended from the bank of the Ourcq
through Bruyeres, Vllleneuve, Cour
mont, Passy Trigny. Culsles and Chau
muzy on the Ardre River. This means
that the enemy has been driven from
his strongholds In the forest of RIz
and the forest of Fere, where, accord
Ins to prisoners taken In the last
week, he Intended to make a strong;
stand behind the hills In those woods.
That line runs at some points only
three or four kilometers from the
River Ourcq, and to the south of Fere-en-Tarde,nols
is about three miles from
that German war-trafflc ctnter. All
