Tha firat ataga of the great German
offeneivs on the western front has

Uerman failure, the enemy having
fallen short of realizing hie aims In
the first great amaeh, according to
dispatches from British headquarters
After attacking all day yesterday
ana until a late hour taut night, the
Germans let down in their smashing
operation along fifty mllei of the
British front and had - not resumed
their heavy assaults at the latest ad
vices from Sir Douglas Halg today.
Further, hard fighting was ahead,
however, the field marshal predicted.
The enemy was still befog held In the
British battle portions, he reported,
which means that the British line is
still intact, although admittedly it has
been bent backward at, points under
tho terrific Teutonic aafiault.
The battle line has moved Ift
only one direction, however, the Brit
ish having struck spiritedly ai me
German masses and regained eome of
the pbslttohs Whlo.il they had tern
porartly abandoned. .
The German oineiai statement r
celved today reports that the British
positions were attacked from a point
aouthcast of Arras to IA Fere, the
British iirst lines being captured. The
dispatches from their headquarters
purposely omit giving the exact po
sition of Hie British lino nt present

tained the battle line but nowhere did
the Germans gain the objective planned.
Regiment after regiment was hurled
against the defenses of the British
front and Field Marshal Halg reports
the German losses as exceptionally
heavy. Desperate fighting continues
all along the' line from the Hensee to
tho Olse and especially on the Cambral
Enejny efforts before Cambral were
aimed principally to the north and
south of the salient left after the fight
ing ceased there last November, with
the evident purpose of cutting oft the
salient and driving through the open
ing toward the-old battlefield of the
Germany's latest offensive finds both
sides .prepared for the shock of pro
longed and sanguinary combat. For
months the Germans have been train
ing troops and moving up guns and
supplies behind their lines between
Arras and St Quentin, The , British
also have been active and were pre
pared for any blow the enemy might
deliver and had anticipated that the
offensive movement would come where
It did.
Behind The British lines is the de
vastated area over which the Germans
retreated last March. Field Marshal
Von Jlindenburg declared at the time
that the devastation was carried out,
not only to hamper the allied armies
but to. provide a battlefield for the fu
turo. The German attack may be only
a feint but a large bleach in the Brit
ish lines might involve the safety of
Paris and Amiens and the French
channel ports front the liiouth of the
Heine, to Belgium.
German artillery fife also haS been
Intense on a lengthy front north of the
La Bltssee canal and In the Ypres Sec
tor in Flanders. On the French front
the GermRiis have carried out minor
attacks northeast of Verduh and in
Borrnlne. French troops repulsed both
attempts With loss.
British monitors and fiaval aircraft
have made a combined attack n Os-
tend, Belgium, a German aetial and
submarine base and British seaplanes
have attacked enemy mine sweepers
near Helgoland with machine gun f re.
In the attacks on Ostend British air
men brought down five German ma
chines, while the monitors bombarded
the town heavily.
Germany, according to unofficial re
ports from the Hague, Considers that
the attitude of Holland toward the
Anglo-American shipping demand has
changed the relations between the
German and Dutch governments. The
same report says that Germany would
take It as a cause of war If Holland
Should abandon her remaining de
mands regarding the use of seized
Dutch ships by the United States and
Great Britain.
