French Aid In Attack That Threatens

By EDWARD W. PICKARD.
The American First army, General
Pershing commanding, started the first
great wholly American ofllenslvo
Thursday, attacking on hoth shies of
the St. Mihiel salient southeast of
Verdun. The French assisted by at
tacking on the point of the salient, hut
the operation was planned hy the
American "tuff and executed hy Amer
ican ollleers and troops.
By Friday night the operation, so
far as the salient wns concerned,
seemed practically completed, for the
ltlg wedge had been ilattened out and
Ihe new line established hy the Ameri
cans ran from Pont-n-Mousson down
the. Moselle to Pngny, thence across the
Wocvre plain to llattonvllle nnd along
the. heights of the Mouse to the old
line In front of Verdun. The fact that
fully 20,000 prisoners were taken
and that the towns and railways nbnn
doMMl by the enemy had not been de
stroyed made ridiculous the German
nfliclnl statement that the retirement,
which had been under consideration
for some years, was completed without

After n terrllle artillery preparation
which for four hours smothered the
entire r.glon within the Oerman lines
with shells, the Yanks went over the
top exactly nt five o'clock, following
a rolling barrage timed for an ad
vance of 100 meters every 40 minutes.
Grent numbers of tanks supported
them nnd cleared the way by crushing
numerous concrete machine gun shel
ter nnd breaking down the elaborate
wire defenses. Amerlcnn aviators In
flocks quickly drove nway the few lluir
alrmon In sight nnd thereafter dl
WRod the enemy supply centers, mu
nition dumps anil hangars with
bombs, while the observation planes
directed the work of the nrtlllery.
Everything moved like clockwork and
the troops hpeedlly gtdned th'dr ob
jectives and went on to the next ones.
Village after village was "taken and
by Frldny the cavalry hnd advanced
far Into the center of the salient nnd
occupied htrong positions,
Having given up nil the ground they
won In their great spring drive, and
finding themselves hack on the old
Hlndenburg line, nnd In some places
well behind It, the Germans decided to
stop their retreat for n while. Marshal
Foch did not fully nssent to this deci
sion, but powerful concentrations of
Hun artillery and reserves In strong
positions, coupled with torrential
rains throughout Plcardy, brought the
nllled offenslvo almost to n temporary
standstill. Not that the lighting by
nny means ceased, for the French and
It.ltlsh kept preying forward, though
wore slowly, nnd the Oermans deliv
ered desperate counter-attacks, which

Ing evacuated last week and the air
drome moles cast of It weie being dis
mantled. The Hrltlsh, llglrlng tierce
ly and repulsing heavy counter-attacks,
were advancing steadily through Hav
rlncourt, Pczlcrcs and Gouzcntieourt
nnd forced n crossing of the Canal du
Xord, thus taking the main defense of
Cnmbral on the southwest. St. Quen
tln was the goal of a race between the
Hrltlsh nnd the French, the former
winning Vermand, Attllly nnd Vendel
les and closing In on the Important
city from the northwest, while the
French southwest of the objective
crossed the Crozat cannl nnd took a
number of vlllnges. A little farther
south the French forces enptured
Travecy on the Olsc, Just north of La
Fere, and from Its heights were able
to dominate the latter town, which was
reported to lH9e been burned by the
Germans. This operation, together
with the French udvance eastward
from Couey-le-Chateau, threatened to
Hank on hoth sides the forest and mas
sif or St. Oobain, the chief defense of
l.aon. Withdrawal of the enemy fnuu
that forest, which Is full of guns In
stiong defensive positions, might tlnn
he compelled without direct attack,
width would be expensive and dllll
cult. At the western end of the Chemln
des Dames the Oermans were lighting
furiously In the region of Lall'aux,
wheie they were trying to regain pos
session of the dominating ridge which
the French and Americans had taken
from them. Many fiesh troops were
used In these nttaeks, but their efforts
were all In vuln.
Although the stupendous German re
treat of the past eight weeks has been
conducted skillfully and the enemy line
has not been broken through, his nr
mles maintaining contact with one an
other, It hus been In every way n most
expensive operation for tho Huns. In
addition to the loss of grent numbers
of guns and Immense quantities of ma
terial, captured or destroyed, they
have lost more than 1100,000 men, the
majority or whom, fortunately, were
killed. Tho morale of tho nrmy Is
being gradually broken by relentless,
continuous and .successful blows de
livered by the allies, the supply of
lighting effectives Is getting low, nnd
the people at home are becoming dally
more dlssatlblied and restless. Cap
tured orders reveal that the wounded
men nre put back In the ranks before
they are cured, and prisoners released
by Russia ure not given time to re
cover their strength und health. Aus
tria has reluctantly responded to the
call for aid and In the quieter sectors
Austilun divisions nre placed between
German dlvlblons, or Austrian soldiers

regiments. This Is taken to mean that

I'erlln because he Insists on an Aits-,
trhm solution of the Polish problem, '
nevertheless was employed mice moro
last week to start a Teutonic pece j
offensive. This, aimed directl at Presi
dent Wilson, was a suggestion that tho I
central powers and the entente get to-
get her for an exchange of views and to
consider all the things which nre keep-'
Ing the belligerents apart. He lntl
niaied this might make further light-
Ing unnecessary. Though President '
Wilson Is not quoted In reply, Wash
ington dispatches mnkc It clear that ho
holds unwaveringly the position thnt
the only tolerable peace will bo, not
negotiated, but dictated to tho central
poweis by the allies, and that thnt Is
the kind of peace which the allies will
achieve. In this, It is needless to say,
he Is backed up hy the entire nation.
No one In n position to predict pre
sumes to believe that such a peace can
be attained this year, but no one In
tends thnt any other kind of penco
shall bo accepted by America. We
