Germans Enter Trenches at
Various Points, But Are
Driven Back With Heavy
(By Associated Press.)
French and German troops have
been engaged in heavy fighting on
both sides of the Meuse in the
West of the river the French have
gained the enemy positions on a front
of about 1,400 yards to a depth of
800 yarns, while east of the river the
Germans were unsuccessful in strong
attacks on a six-mile front.
Sunday the Germans sent heavy
forces against the French positions at
Samogneux, north of the Bois de
Caurieres and near Pezonvaux. They
entered the French line at various
points. Violent French artillery fire
inflicted heavy loss on the attackers
and they were unable to hold onto the
trenches they had gained.
The French success west of the
river was made at Malancourt, west
of Dead Man hill. At the Cheppy
wood, immediately west of Malan
court, the French late Friday pene
trated trenches on a front of 800
metres to a depth of 300 metres. After
destroying the positions, the French
returned with 80 prisoners and seven
machine guns. East of Rheims, in the
Champagne, German troops momen
tarily gained a footing in French po
sitions west of Vaudesincourt, but
suffered heaviiy under a French coun
ter attack, which restored the situa
tion. Down Twenty-three German Planes.

On the British Front in Flanders,
Sunday, March 17. The important
coast sector of the western front,
which for considerable time has
been held by the French, has been
taken over ry the Belgians.
That King Albert's new army has
been able to assume this additional
burden speaks highly for the condi
Jion of this comparatively small fight
ing machine, which has battled so
valiantly from the beginning On a
recent visit to the Belgian front
there the correspondent learned that
the Belgians had effected a great im
provement in their organization dur
ing the winier months and certainly
the morale of troops and officers
seems at the highest pitch.
Lieutenant Colonel De Ceyninck,
the minister of war, informed the cor
respondent that it sometimes had been
difficult to restrain the Belgian sol
diers until the proper moment for ac
tion came. The war minister seemed
to reflect the general voice of the
army when he said:
"Whenever the call comes we shall
be waiting to respond with every atom
of strength we have."
