French Inflict Heavy Ixikscs.
(By the AnsfKilatetl - Prca)
WITH THE FRENCH ARMY IN
FRANCE. April 1, - Comparative
calm reigned this morning between
the southern flank of the battle front
and Montdldier. . (
: Heavy German forces,' however,
were thrown against the village of
Grlvesnes, about half, way between
Montdldier and Moreuil, . evidently
with the Intention of. forcing a pas
sage toward the railroad running In
to Amiens from the south.
All efforts by the enemy were In
vain. The French .troops held firm
throughout a long and constantly re
newed struggle In the outskirts and
streets of the village, where the
soldiers-came to closest grips with
bayonets and hand ' grenades. At
noon the village was still in the
hands of the Fernch, thefjrmans
having been repulsed on several oc
casions with th3f heaviest losses. .
Allies Recapture Positions.
Still further northward the Brit
ish and French fought shoulder to
shoulder in the vicinity of Hangard-en-Santerre,
preventing dense colum-
ns of the enemy rom gaining ground
ana later recapturing some positions
with a number of prisoners. Wher
ever the allies regained territory tbey
find heaps of German dead which the
Invaders had no time to bury. . They
appear to have suffered terrible los
ses from the fire ,of French field
runs. The Germans, themselves had
hitherto .been short of artillery but
more guns ;w'ere brought up today..
All Repalsed, Says Parix.

Two Thousand Gas Projec
tiles Dropped; Americans
(By the Associated Press)
WITH THE AMERICAN ARMY IN
FRANCE. April 1. A deluge of gas
projectiles and explosive, shels fall
on certain portions Of the American
sector northwest of Toul for four
hours last night and this morning. A
number of towns, trenches and roads
were targets for the enemy, who be
gan firing before midnight. First
one place was "strafed"; and then
another. At one location alone four
thousand shells, two thousand of
which were gas projectiles fell.
.Toward the end of the shelling,
the Germans let down a barrage in
front of one of the American front
line positions for good -measure. Lit
tle damage was done.
The American artillery retaliated
and dropped many shells near a truck
carrying supplies to an advance post
before the driver abandoned it.
Two American patrols entered the
enemy lines last night. Both found
the belts of wire heavily electrified,
one reported that the strands Of wire
were connected with interrupters,
which gave, off sparks as a warning
to the enemy sentries.
Great-activity continues In tthe rear
of the enemy lines'. One especially
active point is in the town of Pannes,
at which the -Anierlcan gunners do
not shoot : because the French civil
ians are -still there. As many as
1000 Germans have been seen there
at one time during the last few hours.
Vehicles on roads back of the Amer
lean lines were shelled by Germans
this morning. ? j
