There Is nothing from Berlin to reveal the portion of the Germans that are contending for the coast line. There Is no doubt, however; that they are bound for Dunkirk and Calais and are expecting a strong resistance. , , , Rains that caused much suffer ing to the troops in France earlier in the campaign, are falling again on the battlefield so continuously that great hardships result to the men, and military maneuvers are made more difficult.
