Optimistic Over Outcome.

as being at the front. He is optimistic
over the ultimate outcome and would
think of nothing but an allied victory.

might leave the French left en the
Aisne front unsupported. Retirement
there would bring the battle lines
closer to Paris.
Thousands Taken Prisoner.
German reports that 25,000 prison
ers had been taken were regarded aa
not at all improbable. The capture
of certain points on the first defensive
system probably was what made the
sector of the line abandoned by the
British tyite&able. and started the
withdrawal Presumably the 16.000
men said by the Germans to have
fallen into their hands yesterday are
included in their new figure of 25,000
prisoners. The first captures un
doubtedly were made when the front
lines were breached. The remainder
probably is composed of rear guard
units leftin position to hcjM off the
enemy until the British withdrawal
under fire bad been accomplished,
then to surrender. '
The Germans themselvea . lost
50,000 or more prisoners to the
KFreneff and British in the withdrawal
on the Somme alone, and a great
number also were taken in the retire
ment from the Marne during the first
year of the war.
Officials were hopeful that tomor
row's retiort would show clearly the
German objective and steps to offset
it. They are beginning to look for
counter blows by the allies on other
Sectors. N)w that the Germans are
so deeply involved in their enterprise
in the at. Quentin region it is thought
they could not spare large
to face attack elsewhere
checking their own advance.

the masses of Germans who came on
in denser formation than ever before,

Germans 600,000 Strong.
"For example, south of St. Quentin
one of our divisions had to bear up
against the repeated assaults of no
fewer than six German divisions, pos
sibly 90,000 men, and only when the
assaults ceased with darkness did our
troops withdraw to strong positions
behind the canal system between M
Quentin and the Oise.
"It isestimated that altogether
nearly 600,000 Germans participated in
the offensive. The enemy fought well
and his gunners did good service. The

Throughout the night the battle
front extended southward and it was
reported this morning that the French
army was now engaged. -
The most intense fighting appears
to have been around Roisel and Trin
court The slaughter in the enemy
ranks was appalling.
Twelve. times every available gun in
the area was concentrated oh solid
massed bodies of enemy troops, when
the airmen grew -weary with emptying
their machine, gun drums and drop

crowds of troops and returning for

repeal of the Mocket law and the
constitutional amendment to require

exceed a' week express fears that they
cannot finish the program in twice
that length of time. This is .particu-
arly disturb ne to two or three, of
them who are running for city com
