other portions of the line to aid of
attacked French troops, thus reliev
ing allied pressure against German
front around St. Quentin.

ceeding with unabated violence. The
French were forced to relinquish a
few trenches here, but for most part

points which fell in the first fury of
German attack. Teutons' assault
was attempted over front of more
than a mile.
Meanwhile dispatches indicated
systematic progress in encircling
movement around St. Quentin by
both French and British forces.
