sire to expreaa our aincere ap

and hearty cooperation rendered
by the Kant cwegonian in re

strenuous times. Pendleton has
respondedly splendidly to our
calls. I am now asking your
further assistance and coopera
tion in recruiting the marine

strength of thirty thousand en

ered only 3000 Britishers in the sama
battle. General Maurice. director of
operations, 'asserted. He declared the
British losses were fifty per cent un
der those suffered by the British in
the Sorame battle.
"In the battle of Arras." Maurice
continued, "we captured two hundre-i
guns, and occupied territory two times
as large as that reclaims! In the
battle of the Homme. -
"We've got the Germans reduce.!
to such a stage of nervousness they
claim big losses at a point we didn't

a British attack on the thirty kilo

road was repelled with bear? loas?.
The fact hi no single British soldier
moved in that sector. Whenever w

"A German order captured on one
