With the French Army in France, Thursday April 18.
Th? French administered a sharp setback today to the German
forces, which since the great push have been hammering away
relentlessly in an attempt to get astride the railroad connecting
Amiens with Clermont. - y
The attack was carried out brilliantly. It began at dawn
along a front extending about five miles between Thennes and
Mailly-Raineval. The French captured several hundred Ger
mans and seized a number of important points, which the
nerny had occupied. N
This ground has been the scene of nearly a dozen fierce
encounters since April 4, in which the Germans have used at
least 15 divisions.

Before the French went ever the
top toJay the Germans sent over poi
sonous shells, but did not do much
barm. The French artillery prepara
tion was extremely vigorous. Then
the infantry went forward in a dense
mist with a fine rain.
The ground was in terrible condi
tion, The French went over their
knees in the mud, but those veterans
of the Somme were not dismayed. On
the northern flank they soon carried
the commanding heights.
Meanwhile, in the center another
wave of infantry entered Senecat
wood, where numerous machine gun
emplacements, which defended the
approaches to Castel were reduced
and cleared up in most courageous
style by grenadiers and riflemen. The
outskirts of Castel were reached and
the garrison of that town was men
aced. FRENCH INVINCIBLE.
Further souh other French units
occupied the dominating heights and
advanced toward Anchiri farm, on the
road between Aill-Sur-Noye and Mo
reuil. Everywhere the Germans of
fered the sternest opposition, but
nothing could stay the French ad-
When the fighting calmed down
prisoners were still coming in. A
number of machine guns fell into the
bands of the French. The German
casualties were very heavy.
Prisoners ndmitted it was necessary
for the Germans to capture Kemmel
hill without delay. The troops put in
for yesterday's unsuccessful attacks
were experienced in hill fighting. The
Alpine corps was reinforced by two
divisions recruited in the mountainous
regions of southern Germany and sup
ported bv Jaegers.
The Jaegers suffered severe casual- p

Washington, April 19. "Kauft
Freiheit bonds." ' v
i This is the appeal made to 'every
reader of German language nrws
papers and iwrgazinel published in
the United States these days in news
and editorial columns and advertis
ing pages. "Buy Liberty bonds" itrge
the editors in the language of Amer
Clippings displayed today at Na
tional Liberty loan headquarters indicated-
that the Germanic language
papers in this country are devoting
proportionately more space to the
preaching of the necessity for over
subscribing the loan as a means of
defeating Germany than are other
daily newspapers. Other foreign lan
guage newspapers are equally active
on behalf othe war credit, includ
ing the Hungarian, Bulgarian and
' Work Bears Fruit."
Thcir work is bearing fruit, ac
cording to reports to Hans Rieg, a
director of the foreign language sec
tion of the Liberty loan organization,
for thousands of subscriptions have
been received from the foreign lang
uage districts of American cities since
the campaign started.
Here are some of the Liberty bond
headlines noted in papers which
reached headquarters today:
"Liberty boundot." Hungarian.
"Koopt nu Vandaag Vrijheids bonds."
Dutch. 'Trestito Delia Liberty."
Italian. "Frihede bond." Norwe
gian. "Bondow Wolnosciowych."
Polish. "Bond Svobody." Bohem

Forty-one nationalities are partici
pating in the third Liberty loan cam
paign and practically all are repre
sented by newspapers which lead in
the work. These include Chinese,
Japanese, Turkish, Arabic, Greek, He
brew, Flemish, Finnish, Danish and
other Scandinavian nationalities,. Ar
menian, Asyrian, Portuguese and
Throughout the country the cam
paign work has been carefully organ
ized. Hans Rieg, the director, who
speaks 11 languages, traveled for
weeks before the loan opened, holding
rallies and developing fighting plans
of foreign language committees in the
Subscriptions Pour In.
In their native tongues he addressed
meetings if Germans, French, Ital
ians, Spaniards, Norwegians, Swedes,
Hollanders, Poles, Roumanians and
Danes. Reports now being received
tell of a multitude of small subscrip
tions pouring into local headquarters
from these adopted sons of America.
For instance, the town of Standish,
N. Y., near Plattsburg, with 300 pop
ulation, nearly all of whom are for
eign borr. laborers, has subscribed
$37,000, or six times its quota. At six
meetings held recently in Baltimore
$1,125,000 was pledged by Italians,
Bohemians, Poles, Lithuanians, Jews
Cleveland's loan committee boasts
that it includes representatives of 31
nationalities. In Chicago district 29
nationalities are organized for the
loan, and in one they obtained $5,000,
