First, the allied smashes aroand
the ring encircling the Germans are
giving the former the initiative at a
moment when it disrupts the care
folly laid summer campaign which
Ludendorff promised would bring vic
tory and peace.
Second, Foch is using up the Ger
mans' time, which is vitally import
ant to them.
Third, the German militarists so
encouraged the public with the idea
of taking Paris that they dare not
idmit by retreating, that their chance
is gone.
Fourth, Ludendorff accumulated
vast quantities of material within the
Soissons-Rheims pocket for future
operations, which he is trying to save
by throwing in fresh divisions.
Even were the allies to be stopped
now, they have accomplished far
more than they intended when they
started their big counter blow.
Meanwhile, the French, Americans
and British are tpethodically pushing
on, meter by meter, kilometer by
kilometer, while Ludendorff is put
ting in divisions from other parts ,cf
the line^ which had figured in the
Germans' plans for the coming weeks.
The enemy must now reconstruct his
whole plan of campaign if he would
recapture the initiative. The despera
tion of the Germans is illustrated at
Hill 193, where the Americans re
pulsed eleven attacks in one day and
took nine hundred prisoners.
Inside the Pocket.
[By Lowell Mellett, United Press
Staff Correspondent.]
WITH THE FRENCH ARMIES IN
THE FIELD, July 25.—The allies con-j
tinue their relentless pressure against
the pocket into which the crown
prince's inglorious "Friedensturm"
led hundreds of thousands of hopeful
German soldiers.
One point after another is giving
way before this pressure. The meas
ure of resistance the Germans are
able to offer between Rheims and
Soissons—which likewise, is the
measure of the danger of their situ
ation—is shown by the fact that
.. about forty-three of their divisions
(516,000 men) are now within the sal
ient, of which fifteen were added af
ter the "Friedensturm" started. In-

side the pocket, the seriousness of
the German predicament has been
increasing daily for the past five days.
Ferc-en-Tardenois, the center of all
railway and high traffic from the
south, is being heavily bombarded by
the allied artillery and airmen.
What such a bombardment means,
I was able to discern while standing
on a hill beneath a line of French
sausage balloons.
I saw great volumes of smoke roll
ing up from two villages behind the
German lines. I saw the crew of a
balloon descend safely in parachutes
when seven Boche aviators attacked
the gas bagj.
In this section, since the dawn, the
French had advanced six kilometers
(three and three-quarters miles)
completing the capture of Bois de
Cratelet, and taking Brecy (seven
miles north of Chateau-Thierry.)
At some points the Germans resist.
At others apparently only the ma
chine gun garrisons .ire left, to hold
up the advance.
Forty residents of Brecy remained
the village when the others evacu
ated. These told tales of horrible
treatment at the hands of the Ger
mans. The whole district hereabouts
revealed the utmost devadtatioii.
Forced Germans Back.
WASHINGTON, July 25.—North
west of Jaulgonne American troops
have forced the Germans back to a

eral Pershing reported today, under

'Between the Ourcq and the Marne
our troops participated in local com

"Northwest of Jaulgonne the en

depth of from one to two miles."
British Line Advanced.
LONDON, July 25—.British troops
advanced their line slightly south of
Rossingol wood, in the Hebuterne
sector, taking a few prisoners. Field
Marshal Haig announced today.
"Earty last night the enemy at

AMSTERDAM, July 25.—The

increasing numbers.]
