TEUTONS' HEAVY GUNS ARE USED In a Bombardment of Unprece dented Violence in the Vi cinity of Hill 304. far associated priii) The Germans have resumed the of fensive In spirited fashion In tho Verdun region. Paris report a bombardment of unprecedented vio lence In the vicinity of Hill 304, northwest of the fortress, by reason of which the French were forced to cvacuate some of their trenches on the northern slopo of the hill. The Germans, however, were unable to advance because of the French bar rier of flre and were checked In at tacks to the west and northwest of tho hill.

A?aoci*Tto ??????> WASHINGTON. May fi. ? Tho probability Hint a diplomatic break with Germany linn been averted, at least temporarily, was strengthened today, when tho official text of tho German note, laid before President Wilson and Secretary Lansing win found to bo almost Identical with tho unofficial version sent to the United States In press despatches. Ofllclnln had Indicated that should the oOlcial text lienr out the unolllclal version, they thought It liuprobablo diplo matic relations would have to be sev ered. unless there should be further attacks upon merchant ships In vio lation of new pledges given. Disap pointment lias been Indicated over certain features of tho Gorman reply and some high oltlclala believe that It at loant cannot bo accepted uncondi tionally. The president and Secre tary Lansing studied the text careful ly today, going very minutely Into the phraseology and the shades of mean ing that might be attached to various expressions. Opinion ns to whether the note re quires ail answer seems divided. De cision rests with the president and until he has made up his mind. It Is unlikely that an official expression of opinion will bo forthcoming. So i far he has not Indicated to anyone Ms final Judgment In tho matter. It ID entirely possible that 110 rr'ily will be sent for the present at least, and that the president will maintain complete silence for n time, al lowing Germany to demonstrate on her own behalf the good faith of her Intention to carry out the policy Indi cated In her now orders to submarine commanders. Although the president reallies that the promises given are (he cardinal elements of the note, he Is understood to be displeased over the language used nnd the con ditions apparently attached. Should tho note be accepted as satisfactory and a reply sent. It is expected to take the form of a notification to Germany thnt the United States has decided not to sevor diplomatic re lations as long as the new submarine orders remain effective nnd are ob served. Several members of the cabinet wore not In Washington today. Sec retary Lansing left tonight to spend p. week end at Annapolis, taking with him one official copy of the German note. He expects to have fully di gested Its statements by the time of bis return Monday. The only Indica tion regarding the personal attitude of President Wilson was obtained to day, from persons close to afTalrs of the White House who declared him as feeling himself In a position where lie could not question Germany's good faith, nnless the declaration made by the German government should not prove affective. Count von Bernstorff, the Oerman ambassador, returned to Washington today from New York, lie said he had no Instructions from his government to discuss the situa tion with Secretary Lansing and that' he did not intend to go to the state department unless he should be so Instructed by Berlin or Secretary Lansing should Invite him to call. Officials would not be surprised If the ambasiador should be Instructed to call upon Secretary Lansing next week after he and President Wilson have had sufficient time In which to reach conclusions. The official text of the German note was made public today by the state department. Ambassador Gerard, in transmitting the document, said he had received copies In both Oerman and English, probably accounting for the fact of the official and the unoffic ial versions being so nearly Identical, a slight difference In the text occurs In that paragraph where the unofficial (Continued on page 6, first section.)
