ALLIES' REGAIN LOST GROUND ON jFLANDERS FIELD Ypres Sector Scene of Hard Fighting Marked by Extraor- "dinary Vjolence. ; - Bmnt "of Attacks felt by 25th, 21st and 49 th British Divisions- Hold Lines. (International New Service.) London, April 30-The v.HB - of Locrs, ' petition of strategy , ' import.neo - on . ths Frsnco-Bsl-gran front,- Km recaptured from the Gorman by tho French, it was announced by the British war office today. Other ground that the Germane had gained during the recent fighting on the Flanders ' batt . front wae reoaptured by the al lied forces. . Leers is in Belgium jbeut seven milee southwest f Yores, and has been the scene of hard fighting for the past few days. It lies amidst the hille from which the Germans have been vainly trying to drive the British forces. Although the mighty assault, of the past twenty-four hours on the ren ders battle front were marked by ex traordinary violence the Germans have faired to advance their lines anywhere and the losses . that they have suffered were called very heavy" by Field Marshal Hai in his dispatches to the war office. The German attacks were, extended all the way to the positions ? A b the Belgian army along a front or from fourteen to sixteen miles. The assaults were preceded by an intense bombardment which was es pecially severe between Meteien and Zillebeko lake. ., (Meteren is in 'France near Batl leuil. Zillebeke' lake lies due south cf Ypres in Belgium.) , . . The brunt of the German at tacks fell upon the Twenty -fifth, Twenty-first and Forty-ninth British divisions. The soldiers in these units, although hammered fay violent shell fire and attacked uT. .,,.i.inp numbtri held their lints intact, hurling back the Ger mans as often as they attacked. The Germans were trying to fling back the British flank from the hill positions southwest of Ypres. but their efforts all ended in casualty and when darkness brought an end to the fighting, the field of combat was cov ered with .German .corpses and the - v German lines were " lust where thoy had-bern in the morning jwhen the assaults began. The comparative lull continued upon the Plcardy buttle front (east of Amiens). Cut the shelling has been very heavy on both sides. Sharp inKii attack were delivered on the southern flank of the (iernian salient. The Germans tried to force their wn.v aver the Oise river but wore thrown back The Flanders front has been the . vital field t1 action. On some parts of this front fighting hss continued with the Germans thrusting against certain posi tions despite their repeated re pulses. In the sectors of Scher penberg and Mont Roue (south west of Ypres in Belgium), the Germans eucceefled for a time in Setting a footing in positions held y the French, but the defenders rallied and regained all their ground in strong counter-blows. The thrusts at the Belgian lines centered in the, district north of tho Ypres -Radon railway. It was a noticeable fart that the German war office did not- make a single claim as to ground Rained nor did it mention their attempted efforts to throw back the allied lines alonR the Franco-Belgian frontier. The Germans have used fifteen divisions, or approximately 180. 000 to 200,000 men, in their at tacks around Ypres on Monday, according to the war correspond ent of the Times. Along the front of Kemmel. La Clytte and Dichebusch the (.'.ernians delivered four determined onslaughts without gaining an inch of around. In the Vooremc.eele sector (south of Ypres) savage fighting took place. Both sides held posts in the village and there was terrific firing. The recklessness with which tho GermHn tilth command has thrown troops Into certain slaughter Is appalling. The men wer gent for ward time after time into the galling Are from rifles, machine guns and ar tillery which mowed them down in masses. Another feature of the action of the past several da ,n has been the violence of the gun hie l.ots of can- non were massed on both sides and their mlRhty salvoes shook the earth snd the thunder was heard for miles and milts. The air. black w'lth the smoke of gunpowder, trembled with the concussions Success attended allied thrusts on the Picardy battle front as well as in Flanicrs.
