Bupprecht Unprepared.
Neither the tanks nor the troops en
countered a gr,eat deal of barb wire or
trenches. Obviously Bupprecht either
over-estimated himself or underrated his
opponents. It is clear that he little (ex

er, he was aiming to push on himself.
Th,o present battle line is just south
of the old Somme shell-hole country,
which Field Marshal Von Hindeuburg
laid waste in J17 during his retreat. He
dynamited farms and villages, felled
orchards and trees bordering roads and
von cleared away the underbrush, giv
ing as his excuse that he was preparing
the ground for open warfare in tho fu-
turo, when the British would have this
desert at their backs and the dnoaded
German "superman" in front.
Today Von Hindenburg's legions are
being pressed back against the Hun-
mado waste, with scarcely one small tr,ce
or brush for protection. Marshals Foch
and Haig apparently have caught Von
Hindeuburg unawares. If he escapes a
bitter drubbing, present signs are to
tally misleading.

With the French Armies in tho
Field, Aug. 8. (Night) One thing
apparently revealed by the German lack
of. resistance at some points on tho
Albcr't-Montdidier front today was tho
degree with which the enemy line was
stripped to furnish men for the disas
trous Marne campaign.
Tho part played bjr tho French in
today's battle was comparatively small,
merely sustaining tho right wing of
tho British advance. They actually
started on a front of only four kilo
meters (two and a half miles) but later
this was widened.
At the beginning of tho attack the
French lino was between Bonrges ami
a point West of Morizel, south of the
Amiens-Roye ' road. With the widen
ing of the line, it Included tho whole
of the Avre river as far as llargicourt
(four miles north of Montiliilier.)
Three hours after the 'French infantry
dashed forward it was holding tho wood
northeast of Moreuil and the town of
Morizcl. In the latter place stiff re
sistance was encountered, necessitating
a flanking movement from tho north
west. Four hundred prisoners wero
taken there ami many boches killed.
The Avre wns crossed between Bra
dies and f'astel (a front of about four
miles,) the infantry wading, Bwimming
and utilizing the new bridges. Be
cause of the steep bank opposite, as well
as the sloping ground beyond, this wns
lery could come up.
After the fall of Moreuil the Ger
mans became panicky and fell back
rapidly, the French taking Braches, La
Neuvillc end tho heights north of it in
quick succession. Lnter they took
VillerB-aux-Krables and caried their line
forward to a.lipo running through Mcz
iores and tho heights east of La Neu
villc, including Hill 102, making a to
tal advance of from six to seven kilo
meters (three and three quarters to
four and third miles.)
