WILLISTON GRAPHIC WAR REVIEW (Continued from page 2) ed the high ground north, west and southwest of Bapaume and have sur rounded the important positions of Thiepval, on three sides. Tuesday, August 27 Extending the Picardy battle line far to the north into the Artois sec tor, the British launched an attack this morning in the Scarpe region east of Arras. This attack may be considered as a new development of the terrific battle east of the Ancre river, which has been going on since last Wednesday. The British war office says that good progress is being made in the new attack which was begun in an area where the Germans hold strong ly fortified lines, which have been held by them for the last two years. Just to the south of the Cojeul river the British have seemingly en countered a slight setback, for to day's reports show that they are fighting west of regions where the battle was said to be going on yes terday. Bapaume Pocketed Bapaume is seemingly being slow ly pocketed by the British. Favreuil, a mile and a half to the northeast, has been taken by the British, who have passed beyond the village, while further north Mory has been left be hind by Field Marshal Haig's men. Progress on each side of the Somme river is officially reported from Lon don and it is said that the British are advancing toward Maricourt, four miles northeast of Bray. There has been artillery activity from Roye to the Aisne river, accord ing to the French report, but there is no mention of new infantry attacks in this vital sector. German surprise attacks on the French lines in the Vosges sector have been repulsed, according to Paris. As the battle stands today the Brit ish appear to be quite near the old Hindenburg line south of Arras, while they are making an attack directly against it along the Scarpe river. If the attack launched this morning is successful it may have a determining effect on the course of the battle fur ther south, for a German retreat over a wide section might be followed. French Hammer Away North from Soissons, past Noyon to Roye, the French are hammering the Germans with their artillery. Except on the vital sector north of Soissons the infantry has been inactive. East of Bagneux General Mangin has cap tured 400 prisoners in a successful thrust eastward. It is not improbable, in view of the reports of an enemy retirement north of the Vesle, that the Germans are holding there in order to protect the flank of the with drawal movement between Soissons and Rheims. Premier Clemenceau says the for tunes of war have been definitely de cided, owing to the victories of the last six weeks. Austro-Hungarian soldiers have been taken prisoner by the Allies at two different points on the main battle line, but there are no indications that Austrian aid for the battered German divisions is in great force. Comparatively heavy fighting is taking place in Albania. Vienna says that Austrian troops have crossed the Semeni near the Adriatic and claims successes also in the center and on the enemy left. Rome reports the repulse of Aus trian attacks against advance posts along the Semeni. Miss Monroe To Teach 1st Grade Miss Zilpha Monroe of Lamoni, Iowa, who for several years taught the first grade at the Central School in this city will teach that grade again this year and will take the place of Minn McClung, who resigned at the last minute. Miss Monroe is with out doubt the best primary teacher that ever taught in the Wil liston City schools and the Board of Education is very fortunate in secur ing her services again f^i the com ing year.
