General Foch took over the high commanclat an hour when
the mighty battle "was looking extremely favorable .for the

tried to smash the British front 'and win back-the' famous
yimy ridge.
South of that sector the British, by means of swift, and
powerful counter-attacks, had driven the Germaas back
Recapturing important ground and prisoners.
South of the Somme' river fighting of tremendous .pro
portions has continued to rage, but the Germans were held
in check, sustaining staggering losses.

The action of General Pershing in placing the American army, and
the military resources of the United States at the disposition of the
Jrench government caused much elation in London and Paris today. Now
that .General Foch is in supreme command, the Americans, as well as the
British, French, Belgians, and Portuguese, will be directed by him.

Since General Foch, at Tpres,. pre

tact with the British armies doggedly
retreating to the nortttwest.
The. French steadily extended their
lines from the region of La. Fere to
beyond Montdldler. This' successful
operation has 'definitely broken up
what-la now known to. have been the
original German plan, namely, follow.

for the German crown prince's army
to pass through the breach and march
on Paris by way of the Oise valley;
"While barring- this latter movement
by holding the Oise line 'solldly, the

British. This was accomplished only
by masterful, handling- of-the French
reserves throwing in infantry .di

when 'quick action -was necessary,
while artillery was rushed rapidly
