more important atill, the Teutons have carried a large
eaainea rnltre by itorm.
The Herman have not attempted to advance their wedjre farther
into the'.linc. for no new attack on Merville and farther wcat bare
been reported. They have devoted their aole" attention to the work
of. widening out the salient and striking at Messine ridge and the
railroad' running about aix'milea north of Ilailleul. Meaaines ridge
i the key to the Ypre sector and- it possession will give the Her
man a commanding position in starting a new drive. If the Ger
man auecesae are continued,' there must be a Ilritish retirement
from Ypre and poaaibly for aome distance farther north, while the
cutting of the railroad passing through llazebropck would be still
more aeriou for the llrittsh.
So important are the point won by the German that the
British must be expected to counter-attack at once in an effort to
sweep the invaders back into the lowland onee more.
