Buchanan JoHn Torwnce Managing Director Business Manager THE SITUATION AT PRESENT Through Rethel, northeast ot RlieinlB. through Mezieres to the Bel- gium.frontier northward: and east to j Lusemburs and In Lorraine, lies Iho only line of communication ap- parently open to" the Germans. A concentration towards this point Is apparently being made -by the enemy. To delay the pursuing Allies is one of the main objects of the retreating foe, and the plan has 'been tempor- arily successful by the destruction of the'bridges across the river Aisne. The relief of Fort Troyon, which protects the heights of the Mense, eases the French position, and gives the Allies another advantage. The situation at the present time that the enemy is siiii io north of the river Aisne, and thai fighting is in progress all along that line. From Aniien's to Rheims the position is held by the Allies. The Croivn Prince's army is evidently re- treating ia the direction of Rethel, being driven back northwest of Ver- dun In the direction of Varennes, lies in that-line On the French right the Germans are reported to he falling tact across the border of Lorraine. The Germans are evidently doing their best to hold their centre and west wings .in order to give the bulk of their army time to reach the frontier.
