Ico Is used for PLAN A.RETREAT With 'The American Army On The Alsne-Marne Front, August Associated Press) Germans used less artillery late yesterday against the attack- ing forces on their front depend- ing more upon their machine gun- ners for defending their lines. This fact, coupled with stories of pris- oners i and deserters, tend to strencthsn the belief that they are planning a withdrawal to new positions along the river Vesle. "A deserter Into the lines last night declared that or- ders had been issued for a'serjes of retograde movements until F.ismes on the Vesle- had; been reached. Except for: minor en- gagements there was only artlK lery fire along the. line up to noon today and that was comparatively light." i 1U.ATERLAL.
