The approaching entry of American troops into the line of battle beside the troops of the entente is being awaited with absorbing interest by the men who are facing the Germans along the front where Emperor William twenty days ago launched what was intended to be a crushing blow for the allies.

Maurice, chief director of mili tary operations at the war office announced this afternoon.. "The enemy has obtained no footing on the high ground anywhere." The Germans captured a considerabia part of Ploegsteert wood, Gen. Maurice said. "In yesterday's fighting," Gen. Maurice said, "the enemy trans ferred the scene of his operations to the front between Armentieres and Bethune. The ground of the main attack was held in the center by a Portuguese division with a British division on each flank. Tha main blow fell on the Portuguese. The terrain is an absolutely flat alluvial plain with no feature of any technical advantage, but an awkward salient has been made into our line whence the enemy may attack either Bethune in the south, or Armentieres in the north. "Great importance attaches to the fighting around Givenchy, because this is one of the few rises and is an important gateway on the road to Bethune. Its recovery by the British is therefore highly important." London, April 10.
