The only official word received by" midday today was from the French, who again made indefinite oiaims: further progress. Not since the struggle along the North E-2a began a fortnight ago, has Germany made a statement upon which may be based judgment as to the course of events. The best In- formation available is that, notwith- standing their attacks and heavy sac-: rifices of life, the Germans are fur-: ther from the coast than when the battle started. The one great factor upon which the Allies build their hope's of triurn-" phant conclusion apparently is, ac- cording to their claims, beginning to.. -tsll.vlt is the almost, inexhaustible sup'pfy' of men that may be drawn from the vast reaches of the British, and Russian Empires, which are lied upon in time to crush the .Ger- mans oy overwhelmingly numerical superiority.
