PARIS, March 2.1. The first daylight air raid on Paris
came today, which was one of perfect sunshine. The people
of l'aris refused to immure themselves in cellars and other
Biititerranean shelters and although the subway stations were
crowtlnl, the stret'ts always had a preat number of people
in them watching for an aerial battle or some other stirring"

The "all clear" was then sounded and the normal life
The cable office reopened to take care of accumulated
piles of dispatches. Pieces of shells on examination were
found to be full of rifling marks, which proved that they
had not been dropped but had been fired from a gun. This
apparently left a greater mystery than ever as to where the
gun in question was located, the nature of it and by what
method it was being operated.
Another thinj? that turned the thoughts of officials at the
munition laboratory-to the possibility that a cannon was be
injr used was the regularity with which the bombs fell, one

BRITISH ARMY HEADQUARTERS IN FRANCE, March
f3---Tn Germans this evening were pressing their attach
hard on the right flank of the British near Ham, while on
the northern end of the battle line desperate fighting had
been going on since yesterday about Mory, which has changed
hands several times. ( ,
It is reported that some of the enemy infantry pushed
down across the Semme canal and drove forward again)
prepared positions to which the British had retired. y
German cavalry was seen behind the advancing jGeraiaa
infantry and there was small doubt that the attacking force
intended to make supreme effort to ruptiire the British
line in this sector, which Is near the junction of the French
and British lines. r
The British strategical withdrawal along the battle front '
to better positions has been carried out deliberately and in
accordance with the plan, where by saving the lives of British
troops while the attacking forces have been advancing undef
increasing difficulties with huge cost of life.
' About Mory, the battle has been esneciallv fierce and wk
the story of the British defense can be told it will be a record
