A concentration artillery fire on the
American position in the St. Mihiel
sector began Saturday morning. It
was resumed with increased vigor
just before midnight and continued
intermittently until nearly daybreak.
The Germans laid down a barrage
and leaped over the parapets and
reached the American front line
trenches closely behind the barrage.
Attack With Bayonet
At this moment the American in
fantry burst from their shelters, at
tacking the enemy with grenades and
The struggle continued back and
forth for some time, but over most
of the front involved the American
troops were completely victorious, as
was evident from the heavy toll of
enemy dead and wounded.
At another point a large enemy
force surrounded 25 Americans in
front of their trenches. The Ameri
cans "suddenly attacked and killed
several of the Germans and returned
to their trenches uninjured and bring
The enemy's casualties in the four
days' fighting are estimated at be
tween 300 and 400. Of this number
more than 100 were killed.
Although the enemy wasted fully
a half of his specially trained shock
troop battalion of 800 men he was un
able to penetrate the American lines
which remained unchanged.
Thirty-six Prisoners Captured.
Of the 36 prisoners taken by Ameri
can troops in the fighting on Friday
northwest of Toul, during which two.
German attacks in force were repulsed
with heavy casualties to the enemy,
12 have since died of -their wounds.
The American troops also captured
two German machine guns, besides a
quantity of small arms, grenades and
other war material.
The prisoners taken belonged to
the 25th and 65th Landwehr units, the
16th Pioneers and the Uhlans. The
prisoners said they had had no food
for two days, as the American ar
tillery had prevented their rations
from being brought up to their po
sition. The enemy front lines had been de
stroyed by shell fire, and during Fri
day's attack the Americans tem
porarily abandoned their own front
line, alipwed the Germans to enter it
and then forced them to engage in
hand to hand fighting in the open,
in which the American troops greatly
This attack, which was the longest
and largest scale operation conducted
against the American troops since

The lieutenant called on the Ger
mans to surrender. One of them
raised his pistol as if to shoot, but
the lieutenant shot him through the
head, whereupon the others lifted
their hands high and yelled, "Kama

prisoners into the rear of our line and
then returned to the front and re
sumed the command of his platoon.
I-ive other Americans penetrated
into a German dugout where 12 of
the enemy were slightly wounded.
They resisted surrender, but our men
threw grenades into the dugout, kill
ing four of the Germans. The others
quickly gave themselves up. ;
Scores of officers and men whq had
been assigned to rear line duty
pleaded for an opportunity to go to
the front line. The artillery men also
