TERS IN FRANCE, March 21.
The Germans this forenoon launched
a heavy attack against .the "Hrjtiah
lines over a wide front In and near
the Cambral, sector, and the assault
bears all the earmarks of lIng the
beginning of the enemy's much her
aided grand offensive.
Hard fighting Is proceeding from
a point north of Lagnlcourt south

Goubeancourt. The attack was pre

guns of all calibers, and the duel
between the opposing heavy bat

The Germans have employed gas

forces hurled themselves on the Jlrit

place lying' due west of Hoursies.
At the same time other German
forces advanced behind a smoke
barrage along the ridge running
northward In Gouzeaucourt. It may
be Vid that the attack - in .this re

the HriUsh and that they had made
great preparations to meet the on

the scene of the last great battle in

IN FRANCE, March 20. Secretary

ers that had nV prevlsiously been

various high officials.
In an informal address to the
Rainbow division, officially , known
as the 4 2nd division, the secretary
took occasion to explain o the
army, as well as to the people f
America, the reasons for the mili
tary secrecy which deprives the s"ald

Rainbow Division Efficient
"But now " it is safe to mention
certain divisions which were first to
arrive in France and have alreajly
In France ana nave aireyy
in the line. This includes the'
Rainbow division, famous because
it is representative of all parts of
the United States, which, however,
as a military unit, is to be Judged
only bv its efficiency against . the
enemy, regardless- of its origin At
the jsame time this division should
find in its character an inspiration
to the esprit de corps and general
excellence. It should be conscious
of its mission as a symbol f na
tional unity. The men of Ohio I
know as Ohioans and I am proud
that they have been worthy of Ohio.
A citizen of another state represent
ed in this division will find himself
eaually at home in some other group
of this division, and the gauge of
this state's pride will be" in the dis
cipline of that group as soldiers, its
conduct as men, its courage and skill
in the trenches.
"You may learn more than war in
France; you may learn lessons from
France, whose unity end courage
have been a bulwark against that sin-
ster force whse character you are
learning in the trenches. The
Frenchman Is. first of all, a French
man, which stimulates rather than
weakens his pride in Britain as a
Briton, in Lorraine as a Lorrainer,
and his loyalty and affection for his
own town or village and his home.
n truth, he fights for his family
and his home when he fights for
France and civilization against the
orinciDles of the ruthless conquest
of people of other races and culture.
"Thus you will fight best and
serve best by being art American,
with no diminution of your loyalty
to your state and your community."
