The great attack was fruitless, the
Germans failing to sain the new po
sitions. The French recaptured lost
ground in other sections.
The Germans after concentrating
their forces, bitterly attacked. The
crown prince's plan of strategy this
time was to transfer and suddenly
attack from East Hurtebise to west
of that town.
Prussians Ijokb Heavily.
The two great mile attack won
nothing for the Germans. Between
Chevreaux and Hurtebise the French
regained all their positions lost dur

held completely plateaux Craonne

of the tremendous losses Inflicted on
the attacking troops it became known
Tuesday that In one attack alone
Prussian regiments lost half of their
effectiveness In a few hours.

The recruits of Troop D. raw and

It is a regrettable fact that never

Pendleton made such a hit with the
