This was the case between Corey
and Longpont today. Here the op
posing lines run along the edge of the
forest of Villers-Cotterets. Into which
the Germans are trying to obtain an
entry. In the meanwhile the Ger
mans have assaulted several times
unsuccessfully. From this vicinity
they have been bombarding I .a Ferte
Milon, but have been unable to break
1own tbe barrier of allied resistance
and have been subjected to very
heavy losses. Their objective seems
to be the envelopmnt of the allied
troops occupying the bulge, or forc
'ng them to fall back.
The allies, however,, are holding
firmly at both ends for the present,
despite their inferior numbers, and
the German push appears to hav
reached an obstacle which the enemy
Mnds difficult to ovrcome. '
PARIS. June 5. All the efforts-of

prisoners and some machine guns.
"In the region or Longpont the
Germans who had succeeded in mak
ing some progress around Chavignv
farm were driven out. leaving in our
hands about fifty prisoners. Every
where our positions were main
tained. "Our viators were very active in
the while fighting zone. On Jnne 4
in the valley of the Savieres our
bombing) esradrille dropped more

on enemy concentrations, which were
completely dispersed. On the night
of the fourth about fourteen ton of
explosives were dropped o the rail
way stations at Fisraes, Fere-en-Tar-
denols. Rove and Dohaln. .

military correspondent of the British
wireless service writes as follows
concerning the operations on the
western front:
"The situation in the Alsne sec
tor may almost be said to have reach
ed that position or stability to dis
turb which would require the intro
duction of some new factor. All
operations of the last 24 hours have
had only local or tactical signifi
cance, and, in the balance, have been
as much in favor of the allies as of
the enemy. Tow points are especial
ly noteworthy. The appearance and
successfully operation of an Ameri
can unit on the Cha.Xiu Thierry
front, and the considered expression
of confidence published by tbe allied
supreme war council."

Beat Off Two German At

emy Wiped Out
Another Group of Americans
Put Up Fight Behind
Hun Lines
FRANCE. June- 5. American ma
rines wrote another glorious page in
their history Tuesday night and
Wednesday morning in beating off
two determined German attacks on
the Marne battle. Last night they
wiped out a large enemy patrol, this
morning charged and captured en
emy machine gnna and this after
noon killed many of the enemy and
took prisoners.
The Germans concentrated large
forces before Veuilly wood and be
gan a mass attack. They were mown
down by the American machine gun
ners and the attack was broken up
before reaching the American line,
the Germans fleeing In confusion.
The marines are fighting like Tro
jans, and have no desire for sleep.
Arter inflicting heavy losses on the
enemy last night they almost anni
hilated an enemy patrol this morn
ing. Tbe outfought the German ma
chine gun position this afternoon,
killed seven Germans and captured
a Wounded German.
The story of how the Americans
aided the French in stopping the
German advance at Chateau Thierry
Is a most remarkable one. The reg
iment which bore the brunt or the
fighting bas had a glorious career
dating back to revolutionary days.
Although it is now composed mostly
of newly enlisted men, many of whom
had never been under fire, it arrived
In France and marched direct to the
battle line from Its training camp.
The regiment's fire was so deadly
that (they broke up an entire German
formation and drove orr the enemy In
conluslon. Their French comrades
say Ihey showed the greatest skill
and accuracy while under fire.

Make I Hiring Rewrne.
Two American lieutenants, both
from Tittsburg. played conspicuous
parts in stemming the German ad
vance along the Marne. Lieutenant
Walter R. Flann?ry was the first
American decorated with the French
war cross for participation In the
present great battle. Lieutenant John
T. Bissel. a West Tolnt graduate,
commanding two machine gun units,
was the first American to cross to
