Petrograd said the Rumanians
have been forced back in the

every asserts that counter attacks
by the Teu'tonic Allies here were
repulsed at the point of the

taken place anywhere along this

Twice today, in the morning

launched violent attacks agrainst
the positions newly won by t! e
French in the Chaulnes wood,
south of the Somme river in
France. Both attacks were re

heavy casualties, according to
Paris Some of the attackers in
the morning offensive gained a
foothold in the French first line,
but were surrounded and the 150
survivors made prisoner.
Berlin in admitting that in
Saturday's fighting the British
north of the Somme made gains,
characterises the British losses
as a "r ckless sacrifice of human
lives' Reveral trenches between
Blaches and La Maisonnette,
south of the . Somme, were re

Notwithstanding bad weather
