FRENCH LINES .
, (CeallniMd From 0O
the French left in this area, while the
right would be supported by' Villers
Cotterets wood. These forests offer
natural mean for defense, of which
the French have taken full advantage.
It is believed here that the Germans
will not attempt to , capture Com
piegne itself by direct assault and that
the present phase of the operations
will ome,to an end shortly unless
they make better progress in the Mont-didier-Autheuil
sector and can flank
the defenders out of the whole Com
piegne salient. In reaching this con
clusion, , officers have noted that
wherever the cost of advance has been
exceedingly' heavy the German ad
vance has promptly halted and a point
has been selected for the next assault
where the cost would not be so great.
. Flanking Operations Blocked.
The stubborn French resistance to
the northwest in blocking flanking
operations on Compiegne from this
direction, while the check encountered
northwest of Chateau Thierry, where
American marines have hit hard re
peatedly and have atopped the enemy
in hia tracks thus far, has prevented
an even greater flanking movement
from the south that might have dis
lodged the French defenders of Vil
lers Cottereta forest A
Thia southern movement is believed
to be of wider significance than the
operations the enemy was pressing to.
day north of Villera Cotterets wood.
If it should be renewed successfully
the fall of Compiegne and readjust
ment of the whole line from Mont
didier to the region of Chateau Thier
ry would fbtlow in a long, alow curve,
welding the Picardy and Aline the
ters into one great battleground. .
If observers here are correct in re
garding'this as the real German, pur
oose underlying both theAisne of
fensive and later j developments
around the Compiegne salient, it is to
be assumed, it is said, that their fur
ther conclusion that the main attack
would then be renewed, probably on
the Montdidier-Aibert-Arras tront,
also is well founded. It remains to be
seen, however, whether the immediate
effort of the enemy will be content
with leaving Compiegne substantially
as it now stands, or whether the as
sault will be pressed both north and
south ol that place to name me ae
fenders of this remaining salient out
of their strong forest positions.

London, June 13. Private letters
from Germany which have come into
allied hands indicate' the havy weight
which the war has imposed upon the
poor in that country. ,
' Anxiety for peace finds frequent ex
pression, as well as anger with the
militarist element in the nation.
"We hope (hat peace will come
soon," writes a man from Berlin, "for
already there have been small riota,
but when the time comes it won t go
well with the rich people. ' , ,
'For the poor there is so little food
that they can hardly live, while the
rich people have stores laid up for
years. ' Poor people are only fit to be
shot The men in the field suffer for
the rich and we have to go hungry."
Along the same lines a man from
central Germany writes: ' ,
"If the rich people had nothing to
eat, as we poor people have, the war
would soon come to an end." ' '
Many of the letters return again
and again to attacks on the milttar.

are held responsible for the continua
