GERMANS ARE UNEASY. NO SUCCESSOR TO RIECHERS YET L'N'ITED FrtESS CAF.iEir.AM 1 (Ry WILLIAM PHILIP SIMMS.) WITH THi: FFITIS1I A KM IKS IX; FFANCi:.. March US. "In slots the bat-; tie blaze is burning low." I North of the Somme the Fritish seem ' to be holding firm. Southward, wiih the' fighting heaviest. Hindenburg forces arei putting less ginger into their assaults. ' British soldiery doea not believe the comparative -iciet of the battle front means the engagement will die out, according to dispatches from William Phillip Slmms. On the con trary they believe it wlU ro to a finish, ending in a great decisive en gagement which win en dthe battle and probably the war. This may be regarded as one of the most significant thingg in to day's news. , It shows the British won't be con teat merely to stop the Arive. They want to make this the flaal struggle to press it to the knockout which Idoyd George declared must term inate the war. The capture or Montdidier was the surprise c a day that appeared otherwise to show the Germans held at all points. Until this retirement it had been presumed fighting in this vicinity had. not progressed more than three or four miles west of Roye. Haig's report showed the British holding in tha Somme region and taking prisoners and munitions as well. Increased enemy activity was noted in the region of Arras, west of the northern tip of the offensive. Wood reported the Trench making a remarkable defense of the Oise lino and daily increasing the danger to Hindenburg's left flank. Increasing difficulty in the Ger man progress has begun to worry Berlin newspapers while there are intimations Hindenburg himself is troubled. 1 . pi ay' Ten e to bo d. want one liberty loan drh-:.
