Although the latest German offi

the situation on the battle fjnt la
unchanged, there has been a change
on one of the most important sectors
in PIcardy. And American marines
were responsible for it.
Attacking on a front of about two
and a half miles in a fight that be

In four hours drove back the enemy
two and a quarter miles and occupied
all the Important high ground north,

machine gunners had turned into a

After a breathing space in Thurs
day's battle, the Americans returned
to the fray and at last accounts hard
fighting was in progress for this sec
tor which commands the Marne at
that part of the front where the bat
tle line swings eastward toward
Rhelnis. The marines took 100 Ger
man prisoners In the early encounter,
while the French troops on their left
also gained an advantage over the
enemy and made 1(0 captives.
