' The apparently Inevitable period of pause has now developed In
the battle for Cambrai, the great German base on the Somme front,
and bulwark of the whole Hinder-burg defense position. German
counter attacks and British, consolidation of ground won has suc
ceeded the first" st dee of the great thrusting operation
The British, taking stock of their Indubitably great victory,, have
to their account the breaching of the Hindenburg three-ply defense
lines; the capture of ' approximately seventy-five square miles, of ter
ritory, concentrated on the ten-mile front immediately southwest of
Cambrai, where their advanced positions are now within three miles
of the town; .the further demoralization of the German defense on a
new front, .and. the capture of upward of 9,060 mn, numerous heavy
and light guns, and great quantities bf other, war. material.
Seemingly the British commander. Gen, Sir Julian Byng, just fell
short of achieving a victory that might bare had immediately decisive
result end there Is nothing even yet to indicate that these results
may not be still attained. Decislvness would have been stamped, upon,
the brilliant British achievement had Cambrai itself been taken '-in
the first forty-eight hours' assault But 'very likely "the British did
not have the very great concentration 'of reserve forces at hand with
which to pour through the breached German lines in such fashion as
completely to overwhelm the German defense. . ...
Nevertheless the British success has had, and win continue to
have effects of the utmost importance. It necessitates the Germans
pushing great forces to the Arras and Somme fronts; which had been
t largely stripped to supply the defense in Flandrs along the Passchen
daele Ridge. The campaign in Italy cannot .therefore be so freely
prosecuted, for no troops can, safely be moved from any of the other
fronts In France and Flanders . . . .
Further offensive operations by the British before Cambrai may
be; expected so soon as the existing advanced positions have been fully
safeguarded and artillery Has been brought forward. The Cambrai
campaign cannot henceforth depend again on the element of surprise
and therefore the older tactics will need to be resorted to artillery
bombardment of Cambrai, whose outer defenses have practically all
fallen to the British, until the German holding of the town becomes
no longer possible. .,...!. . . -
Today, the British line before .Cambrel'stretches somewhat un-:
-evenly from Masnieres, on the. Scheldt canal, about four miles due
south of the town, northwestward through Cantainr, three miles west,
by south, to Bourlon, still In German possession. Immediately south
east of Bourlon, In the vicinity or the Bourlon wood, heavy fighting
On'the'ualian front the chief activity still continues fa the moun
tainous sector between the Piave and the Brenta rivers, on the upper,
rightangled portion of the defensive line.
The Istett official statement from Berlin asserts Uiat the crests
of two important heights Ionte Fontana and Monte Spinoncia have
been captured. The Italian official report admits merely that the
advanced positions on these heights have been lost and adds that on
the chief positions at Monte Monfenera and Monte Tomba. as well as
on Monto Pertica, Austro-Germsn assaults were sanguinarily repulsed.
No action has been reported along the Plave river.
The first official admission that the
draft law Is to be amended and that!
a plan la being considered for calling
upon youths down to eighteen years
of age waa made today by Provost
Marshal General Crowder.
In a circular letter addressed to
the local and district boards, Oenersl
