Chances' ot Isolation
The skilful withdrawal of the
east of Ypres removes the larger traction of the chances of an i-j
lation of the British and Belgian armies in Belgium from the main j
mass of allied armies in France and of a consequent disaster. Until
the British have retaken the Mcssines-4'Vhitesheef' ridge or re
tired out of Ypres altogether, the danger will remain, hut not in
any acute form.
In estimating the meaning of
tions must be examined, hirst
value of the ground, evacuated;
new front on which the British have
elected to stand, at least temporarily.
The reasons for the retirement are
simply told. When the JJernians on
Monday took the Messines-Wyt-shaete
ridse, which they had been
assuilinj; for several days, they look
ed north and dovvn hill upon the
tdnple railway 'une and the main
highway, which feed the Ypres
salient and they were only three
miles away from these. If they
could advance three miles, before

rcp point, they would envelop ana
capture r:ian uiuumiius "i iiiusii
troops and a vast booty of guns and
m;ahly ( u';iit.
As it stood at the critical moment,
the British on the ride east of
Ypres in a broad circle from the
flooded area to Passchendaele were
nearly eight miles away from the
point in the Ypres-F'operinshe road
toward which the Hermans were
advancing and from whion they
were only three miles distant. it
was, therefore, essential to retire at
once and to do two things', namely.
to fret all the troops ea.-t of Ypres
back nearer the danger point and
secondly to get a many as possible
beyond it to avoid a threatened
To accomplish these two things,
Haig first drew back his troops from
the broad circle of hills to a com-
paratively straight front just east
of the ruins of Ypres. the tmnt oc
cupied bv the British when they
began their great offensive la
ivear. This retirement snortenea nis
line bv nearly 1." miles and this
retire west of Ypres and beyond the
danger point, l'urther, it gave Haig
.vome fresh troops, which were ap- i
i pat ently used in the counter offen
sie, which on Wednesday took but

What were the values of those gains
in the main; they were alues that
were impoiiatu oniy ior an oueu
sie. When Haitr set out last year
to tliie a wedue between the Her
mans on the Ilelcian coast and those
in the I.s valley, and west of Lille,
he had liist to capture the circle of
hilN east and north of Ypres. of
