ENEMY PUSHED NORTH OF OURCQ ALLIE8 ENTER FERE-EN-TARDE- NOIS AND TAKE TWO TOWNS NEAR RHEIMS. FOE DEAD LINE MARNE FRANCO-AMERICAN GUN8 ROAR DEATH CLIMAX TO GREATEST BATTLE OF WAR. Western Newspaper Union Newa Service. With the American Army on the Alsne-Marne Front, July 29. The French and Americans bave con tinued their rapid advance to the northeast, and the forest of Fere was cleared of the enemy Saturday after noon. The allied forces are losing contact with the Germans. Paris. The Germans Saturday re treated along the whole front north of the Marne, the war office an nounced. French and allied troops, pressing bard on the enemy rear guards, have reached the line of Bruy-eres-Vlllenueve Sur- Fere, Courmont, Passy-Grlgny, Culsles, La Neuville and Chaumuzy. This means that the German crown prince and his generals are extricating their troops from dan gerous positions as best they may. The Franco-American troops, con tinulng their pressure on the Germans In retreat from the Marne, have reached and crossed the Ourcq river and penetrated the town of Fere-en Tardenols, one of the great German supply bases for the enemy troops In side the Soissons-Rheims salient Meantime, on the center of the al lied right wing southwest of Rhelms, violent attacks by the French have forced the enemy to give further ground and enabled the Frenen to cop ture several towns of strategic value and to draw their front appreciably nearer the high road which runs northestward from Dormans to Rhelms. On the extreme wings of the grad ually decreasing pocket near Sols sons and Rhelms the enemy, heavily reinforced, is holding tenaciously, real izing that successes there would re sult in a general crumbling of his plans of defense against the locking up ot his entire armies inside the big bag.
