This was the notable result of the
attack near Helleau Wood on the
Marne front, by the Americans on
Wednesday. . They did not seek to
break through. the German line.' but
wanted, to reach high ground which
wonld command the villages of Torcy
and Rouresches. This ground is
now securely in their possession.
The French attacking -oulhwest
of Sois-ops. on the Aisnc front, had
the same object in view. Herman
counter-attacks against the new
French positions have been repulsed
with heavy losses to the enemy.
The liritfeh. on the Lys salient of
the Flanders front, cut into the Ger
man lines on Thursday and succeed
ed In shoving the enemy from his po
sitions on several little ridges of
land to lowwr levels.
There is reason for believing that
preparations are now nearly com
plete for a resumption of the Ger
man drive. Jtist where the blow
will fall is not known, but it is ex
pected to eclipse the ferocity of the
attacks of Cambrai and Aisne. An
epidemic of influenza in the German
armv it rerwvrtAr! anil thf together
with the prevalence of typhoid, dys-l
entery and other disease may delay
the onset for a time.
A week ago the Austrian began
their flight across the Piave river
from the western bank where they
had received a sanguinary check at
the bands of th Italians. It is pos
sible now' to view the vent In Its
true perspective and estimate the vic
tory of the Italians as a great defen
sive triumph. General Dial, the
Italian commander la chieT, has not
pursued the Austrians further than
the Piave. except for the setting up
of strong bridgeheads on the eastern
banks of the river. y
There is still danger of 'another at
tack being launcher against Italy,
this time from the mountain front
and with German forces leading
their allies in their attempt to force
their path down into the Italian
plains. For this reason, apparently.
Genera.! Diaz is content to hold the
Piave strongly and to wait, for the
moment at least, any farther attacks
against his vital mountain positions.
The situation in Russia is obscure.
While there are indications that the
sway of the Bolshevik! may be near
its end, there is no confirmation of J
