-GERMANS ADVANCE IN BELGIUM
LOSSES BIG ON BOTH SIDES
London. Germans are slowly ad
vancing in Belgium. Late advices
from front say that British have
ceded certain of their outer line of
trenches "to straighten out their
line" and it is declared that new posi
tions are so strong that German for
ward movement is certain to be
stayed. Losses on both sides are
enormous though German losses far
outnumber those of allies who are on
defensive and fighting under the pro
tection of their trenches.
Germans continue use of poisonous
gases, taking advantage of strong
winds that are blowing directly from
their trenches across the line held by
the British. They are bringing up
enormous forces in the effort to re
take hill 60 south of Ypres, but so
far have succeeded only in maintain
ing a foothold on the easterly ap
proaches to it.
While Germans continue their
main attacks on British positions in
an effort to take Ypres the French
and Belgian forces are violently at
tacking their right wing and have
made gains between Pypegaal and
Het Saste. If these can be continued
they will aid materially in lifting the
pressure on British position.
