April 25.- (By the Associated Press.)-Vigorous British counter attacks towards Vil-lers-Bretonneux .ipparently re suited in the reclaiming ot a considerable part of the territory lost to the Germanr yesterday. The battle is still raging and it is too early to make claims. London. April 25.-Heavy fighting continues on the s.3Ctor east of Amiens. Reuter's correspondent cit British army headquarters reports. The Germans obtained a footing in D'Aquenne Wood, west ot Villers-Bretonneux, but the Brit-isii counter attacked and drove tliem back to the fringe of the wood. At sever.Tl places the Brit-isli have retaken ground and their position has improved consider-Sbly. Both British and German tanks participated in the fighting around Villers-Bretonneux. Two British tanks, the correspondent says, got ,-tmong a mass of Germans and did great execution. The Germans made a determined attempt to rush toward Kem-mel Hill, but without appreciable effect. The French counter-attacked and restored the position. HEAVY LOSS London. April 25.-Severe fighting was in progress all night in and around Villers-Bretonneux and still continues. Heavy casualties have been inflicted on the enemy there. On the Bailleul sector the battle is continuing over a wide front. TAKE HANGARD Paris, April 25.-The Germans have captured the village of Han-gard on the front southeast of Amiens, the War Office announced today. The battle continued with violence throughout the night in this region. The French lost Ha�u gard. recaptured it. and finally were Sixain forced out of the town, but are holding the ground immediately around it. London, April 25.-Three attacks made by the Germans on British positions east of Amiens have been repulsed, it Is rnnounc-ed officially. On the Flanders front late yesterday, the Germans attacked French positions northeast of Bailleul and were repulsed. Early this morning after an intense bombardment they renewed their attacks In this sector and again at British positions farther east. The British regained ground around Villers-Bretonneux by counter attacks and took prisoners. ON SMALLER s'" ai �r London, April 25.- (Oy Reuters Ottawa Agency)-The resumption BRITISH DOUBLY REPLACE NUMBER OF GUNS LOST London, April 2S.--The Britleh have lost nearly one thousand guns, between Tour and five thousand machine gun*, and tha total manufrcture of ammunition of between one and three weak* *inee the preeent battle in Franca began, Winston gpancer Churchill, miniater of munltlena, told tha houae of commana taday. All th**e loaae* have baan made gaed. ' The munltlena ministry, aaio Mr. Churchill, placed at tfia diaiMaai of air and ground sarvlcsa mere than twice the number af guns lost or dastraysd In ths battle in Pranc*. - Thara war* now, he added, actually mors sarvlosabia guna as a whole and more of every calibre than thara ware at the beginning of tha batti*. Mr. Churdhlll *ald alrplan** war* being produced mere rapidly than trained pileta ware and that v*ry tank loat wa* r*plae*d by another �nd bfttar on*� of the German offensive seems on a much smaller scale than formerly. Its objectives in yesterday's attack were exclusively limited. It is possible that this is do: to the realization of the great slaughter which has been attending the Teuton headlong rushes but the en3my has huge forces assembled in the neighborhood and if local thrusts like that which captured Villers-Bretonneu)'. yesterday can be repeated the enemy is sure sooier or later to take advantage of those gains to push on to the utmost at the best moment. As in the case of the attack which captured Armentieres. the enemy made two thrusts against Villers-Bretonneux yesterday. One was made against Mount Kemmel and was repulsed. The other was launched against Villers-Hangard where the Germans were evidently anxious to wipe out a salient and capture high ground on both sides of tii� road le^iding to Amiens before ^ttemDting another general ad-'ance. The other enemy attacks yesterday were clearly diversions. Correspondents at the front state that no British tank* have been in action for two or three weeks.
