Paris, Aug. 2:1 The French advance has swept the
Germans back to within three hiiles of Chaulnes, the
highly important railway and highway center, between
Noyon and LaFere.
. General Mangin's men are reported to have reached
the borders of Coucy-Le-Chateau, only three miles from
the old Hindenburg line. They are pressing eastward
along the roads leading into the town from the Ailette
river and have launched a heavy .track against Coucy
Grove, south of the village. ,
Noyon is being attacked from the northwest, south
east and northeast. The French are across the Oise and
Manicamp canal and have reached the edge of Morlin
court, 2,000 yards (slightly over a mile) from the Noyon
railway station.
The road from Noyon to Laon soon will be penetrated
from another direction.

quarters of the American forces. In a
recent letter he writeg that one of the
