On the British fighting fronts in
France British forces have recaptur
ed important positions from the Ger
mans east of Arras, while the Ger
mans in Champagne region have
gained a foothold in French first
line trenches.
The British gain was .made east of
Monchy-le-Preux where Monday the
Germans under cover of a violent
bombardment drove back the Bri
tiah and occupied their .trenches. Be
tween the Ailette river and Moulin
d|e Laffaux toe Germans, in a strong
attack in which huge effectives were
used, captured a section of a trench
held by the French. The attack was
delivered over a front of ebont two
thirds of a mile and followed a vio
lent bombardment of the French
Near Lens the Canadians in an ap
sault on a position held by. the. Ger
mans which was barring toe way to
tlw city, routed out the defenders
and captured the trenches and in
corporated them into top British
lipiea. The Germans in serious at
tacks endeavored to regain the lost
tercsin, but were beaten off.
In the Aujtro-ttaliap theater, thé
Italians on thé Asiao plateau, south
east of Trentino, are again develop
ing the offensive which last week
gave them considerable territory»
but which was stopped by weather
conditions. .The Rome war office re

men, besides inflicting heavy casual
ties on the Austrians, who strenu
ously resisted' the advance.
The expected general engagement
along the Macedonian front has not
yet developed, but on various sec
tors, notably in toe Cerna bend and
north of Monastir toe artillery acti
i vity again has increased.
