AOSTRO-GERMANS HELD BACK
Reinforcements Arrive and Westsrn
Front Extends From North Sea to
Adriatic—War Department's Week
ly Review Is Issued.
Washington.—England, France and
Italy stand firmly united to oppose
any further advance of the enemy In
the Italian sector, says the war de
partment's weekly review of military
operations. The statement suggests
that the Teutons probably thought
Italy would be left to her fate, or that
the allies would be unable to dispatch
the necessary forces In time, but de
clares that England and France al
ready have sent large reinforcements
and the western front today stretches
from the North sea to the Adriatic.
Only bare mention of the American
troops In France Is made by the de
partment. In pointing out that the
momentous events in Italy must not
"lead us to forget that the principal
battle front of the war remain*" tn
France and Flanders, the statement
says, "here our forces are lighting."
"Our attention durhig the past -weak
has been centered on the glgantle
struggle now going on In the Frlullan
plain," says the review.
"The Austro-Oerman forces, break-
ing through the Italian defenses
along the upper reaches of the Isonso,
have erupted Into the low lands, and
carried forward a series of rapidly
coordinated operations, which hare
resulted In the conquest of much ter
ritory.
"Trench warfare has, for the time
being, been abandoned. Great troop
masses are maneuvering in open
country.
"Under the direction of General Ca
dorna, the Italian armies have with
drawn to the west bank of the Taglla
mento river. • • •
"The momentous events in Italy
should not lead us to forget that the
principal battle fronts of the war re
mains. as it has been since the be
ginning, the Important sectors of the
western front, Ift France and Flan
ders.
"Here the overwhelming bulk of
enemy strength is concentrated. Here
our forces are fighting. »
"Steadily the Franco-British foreee
are pushing forward."

The enemy Is using both hltfi explo

GERMAN TROOPS RETREAT
FROM CH EMIN-DES-DAMEB
Full Extent ef Retrograde Movement
Not Yet Fully Known.
The Germana have retreated from
pointa along the historic Ch«mln-Des-
Dames sector on the Alsne front In
France, where for seversl months the
French troops of General Petain had
been keeping them aharply to taek.
Just where the retrograde Move
ment took place and how far It ex
tends cannot yet be told, as the Ger
man official communication merely
says that the Teutons, "unnoticed and
undisturbed by the enemy," system
atlcally withdrew their Unes trom the
hilly front in this region. The entire
Sine to the north of the AJsne where
the Germans were last reported as
facing the French Is undulating In
charaoter from the Soltsons sector
eastward to the Ticlnlty of Craonne;
and therefore It is Impossible, from
the rather terse acknowledgment of
withdrawal, to delimit the terrain
which has been given up.
Nevertheless it seems apparent that
the Germans, tired of the terrible or
deal they had been forced to undergo
for some time from the Preach artil
lery an'd violent infantry attacks, have
decided to fall back upon Laon, capi
tal of the department of the Aisne,
which with Its network of railways
has been the quest of the French.

Washington.—MMltary experts hero
do not expect winter to halt the great

Flanders. Secretary Baker's weekly
review of war operations discloses the
belief of thenar department that po
tency of material and men will enable
the British - and French coatmanders
to utsmph over natarai obstacles and
continue forcing the enemy backward
without waiting for spring?
The review touches for the first tkae

In dwelling upon the Importance of
the battle of Flanders and its effect
upon the morale of the Germans, tha
war secretary declares It apparent that
the German high command planned
the recent expedition again*! the Rus
sians in the Riga sector la order to
holster np morale and meet impend

her Unea In the east, he adds, Ger

of her line of ootamunlcations and
Increased confidence tn the final allied
victory.
The ie>tn covering the week end

"Our men in France, after three
months intensive training are In splen

"The full Importance of the battle
In Flanders is beginning to be reveal
ed. In to appreciate the real

the effect it has had on the morale of
the German army and the German peo
ple, we must consider briefly the
Oeitnan attacks In the Riga sector. In
cluding the capture of Oeeel, Dago,
and other minor Islands of the Fin
nish gulf.
"While no attempt should be made
to belittle the Importance of the po
sitions gained try the enemy, we can
not fail to record that it Is apparent
that the Oermana undertook this ex

the morale of the country, mors par

RED NOVEMBER S.
THREE MIEAICMiS KILLED
Five Men Ars Wounded and Twelve
Taksn Prisoners—No Details as to
How Americans Were ;Trapped by
Teutons.
Washington.—ln the first clash be
tween American and German troops on
the Trench front November 3, the
Americans lost three men killed, five
wounded fad 11 taken prisoners. Fur
ther than the brief report from Gen
eral Pershing and receipt of the cas
ualty list nothing has come through
to Indicate Just how the small body of
Americans occupying a sector of
trench on the front line were trapped
by the Oerman* and the entire number
dlspoeed of. Belief here Is that the
men were forced Into their dugout by
the Intense barrage fire preceding the
attack and trapped there by the Ger
man Infantry. Those not killed were
compelled to surrender or accept the
alternative of being blown to piece*
by hand grenades as the Oermans had
all the advantage. It Is likely. In the
opinion of army officers, that the men
killed and wounded were those left
outside the dugout as sentries when
the majority sought protection from
the barrage. This Is the general prac
tice along the front by both sides. It
Is possible that the attackers reached
the trench sooner than expected, and
that the lookouts were shot down be
fore they could summon their com
rades from the dugout. In that event
the Germans undonbtedly covered the
entrance to the shelter and the Ameri
