Up French forces Are continuing a methodical Advance on the Western front in face of German artillery fire which becomes heavier As attack troops approach the West Wall it was made known today. Operations which had extended in recent Days to Points along a 60-mile front entered for the moment principally on a 27-mile sector Between Saa Bruecken and pie Masens. In gains of from two to four Miles yesterday the French had made closed approach to Saa Bruecken Wei Bruecken Blie Kastel and pie Masens reports said these towns were All important because they were at the Start of the real West Wall and because they Are part of a Rich Industrial and mining area which Germany needs. Communiques of the High command continued to emphasize that the Advance was methodical and that it was not a grand scale attack on the West Wall or Siegfried line. Rather it was said the operation was a starting Point for later action against the main line when and if a weak spot had been found and also a Means of providing a valuable safety Belt in front of Frances own Maginot line. All positions taken were being consolidated at once against either local counter attacks now or big German attacks later. Reports indicated that nearly All towns being mentioned in connection with French operations had been emptied of their German civilian population and thus Industry in them was paralysed. This meant to the French first that each Point evacuated lessened German Coal production secondly that any lessening of production detracted from the value j of German gains in Poland. Considerable doubt was expressed in any event that Germany had labor to operate polish mines. Tanks and motorized units were being used in one Force now. It was indicated and whereas at the beginning of the French movement Little groups of infantrymen and machine gunners were used to feel out the German Advance positions entire battalions were now engaged. 4 Outi tied on i Nice four London sept. 12 up radio j broadcasts from Warsaw said today i that counter attacking potes had a driven germans Back several Miles West of the City and had repelled All German thrusts from the North.
