The first clash came apparently on the Italian left (northern wing) where the Teutonic forces sought to carry out a flanking move. This was around Asiago. The enemy was re pulsed and a strong counter attack resulted In the capture of a number of prisoners, according to Rome's ver sion. Berlin insisted that 14.000 Italians had been cut off.

For the last three years the pres ence of the enemy on this ridge haa been a source of anxiety to ths French.

The French continue ln close con tact with the enemy. In the region of the newly captured ground along tha Allette, they are organising their position from the Olse canal to Corbeny, where lively artillery duela are noted. The main German positions now centered about Montberault Ridge will come under the converging fire of French guns from Corbeny and th fort of Malmatson. Means Mere Than Mere Gala. Tha Importance of this successful French advance must not be over looked. It meana more than a mere gain of so many square miles of ter ritory; It means. the penetration of the powerfully fortified Siegfried line, hitherto considered by the enemy im pregnable, and pushes back his main defensive positions to within five miles of the fortress of Laon, the major objective. Along other sectors of the western front, relative quiet prevailed. How ever, the harassing of the enemy con tinues unabated along the entire front. The usual artillery duels, trench raids, and patrol encounters took place.
