Today, on the eve of the anniver

That the Germans have gained
ground In their encircling movement
on the French left wing Is admitted
by the French foreign office, but it
it asserted alHo that after a three
daye,' battle in this region the An-Alo-French
line, although pushed
"tack, still remains unbroken.
This is described U4 the "wearing
d-.wn" policy on the part of the al
lied armies, and it is claimed that
the losses of the attacking forces
have been much greater than those
of the defenders.
French reports alone are availablo
thus far and nothing is reaching the.

their real value.

The veil of secrecy, drawn
lighter yesterday than any time In
tho lust thirty days, maybe taken
as an indication that events of
importance are transpiring In
northern France. A similar si
lence was observed during tho
fighting around Mons, Cauibral
and LeCatneau last week
The latest report on the situa
tion north of I'arls was Issued
I a fit night. It said that the
French luft, owing to the prog
ress of the German right wing,
had been forced to "mark a new
retirement." Explaining this an
nouncement, the French embassy
in London announced: "The An-filo-French
army corps have had
to give ground, but nowhere
have they been broken through."
The fighting now, in which
the allies are believed to be op
posing the German advance, in
thought to be centered around
LaFere, a strongly fortified
Olse, seventy-five miles north
eust of Paris. The fate of the
French capital may hang on the
outcome of these operations. It
Is not definitely known whether
the Ilrltish troops in France have
been engaged again or not.
A news dispatch from Dieppe
says . a great battle has been
fought at Crolsllles and probably
Is still in progress. No details

source. Crolsllles is ten miles
