It was the first large scale counter thrust delivered by the allies and con stitutes an important victory, which, if followed up, threatens to turn the whole German center unless the Crown Prince draws it back at least 13 miles to the Roye-Noyon front to bring it on a level with his right flank.

WEEKLY WAR REVIEW Participation of American 8ldlers In th Great Conflict Brings the Battle Closer Home Our Boy a Fighting shoulder to Shoulder With thai British and French Germans Slow Ing Up. p'Annn mi nimn ill nilUU UH 1 nu LIBERTY LOAN Washington, March 27. The turn ing point in the ztrantic conflict in France is close at hand, according to AmOUnt WHI Bfi S3.nfl0.nnfl.. . -i "-i American and other military oflicials here. For the people of the United States the announcement by the British au thorities that American troops are fighting side by side with French and British defenders, brings the battle closer home. Until General Pershing reports as to the American forces engaged, no cue here will hazard a guess concern ing the part they are playing. Amer lean heavy artillery has been training In England and the men are familiar with British great guns. They may be reacting the front with new guna sent to replace those lost during the retirement American tank detach ments also hare been at the BritUu training camps for months. American engineers are officially reported as in the battle zone. It was regarded as entirely possible, however, that American infantry divt sions. already seasoned by front line experience in their own sector, had come up with French reinforcements They would be certain to operate with the French, as their equipment Is largely French and they must be sup plied with ammunition and replace mcnts from the French communica tion lines. Should this prove to be the caso, H is possible, officers here believe, that American troops will be with French units in an effort to score heavily gainst the Germans when the mo ment for attack arrives. The official British report, while ad muting further German advances in the capture of Roye, indicated a de cided slowing up of the direct prog ress of the drive against the British front. The offlda statements indi cated that the Germans saw danger In the txpoeure of their left flank to the threat of the French line on the River Olse. Evacuation of Noyon gave tn.o French a river line to hold agalnsi the Germans on a front that paralleled the flow of ammunition and supply trains to the more advanced German forces in the region o'. Roe. Bitter aeranlta against the French line wsre made without avail. Mean while the evacuation of Roye by the British served to extend still further the German supply lines agalnsi which a French assault might be wuncnea. 000 at 4 14 Per Gent.

The attack was started on a 60-mile front, rrcm the Scarp river to Verdun, compris ing the British front In northern France. By Employing masses of troops, -supported by a great weight of artillery, the Germans penetrated the British lines at certain points ce- tween the Scarpe and Vendeuil. At the end of the third day Berlin claim ed advances had oeen made by the Germans at several points to a depth of nine miles. The fighting never ceased for a moment It has been definitely ascertained that more than 1,000,000 Germans have been brought to the western front in an endeavor to crush the British army holding the line from the region of Arras to the south of St. Q:ieat!n. Berlin reported the capture of Chauny, Peronne and Ham and to hare Increased the number of pris oners taken to more than 30,000, in addition to 6C0 guns and large stores of war material. The Germans also announced that American troops were brought up to aid the British, and that they were beaten with heavy losses on two sectors. Paris announced officially that the Germans are bombarding the city with a monster cannon, which has been located In the forest of St. Go- bain, west of Laon, 76 miles from the Paris city hall.
