T Amsterdam, Sept. 20.-A' semi-official report on the recent fighting issued in Berlin by an army expert says:  'After the Anglo-French forces had endeavored vainly since Sept. H to create a suitable base from which to attain their aim of breaking through the Siegfried positions, Marshal Foch's troops resorted, on the 18 th to a big mass attack from Ilavrincourt to the Somme. "The attack began at. 5:.v0 a.m. with the heaviest fire reaching deep into the rear of the terrain. Numerous tanks rattled forward before the Anglo-French infantry, while a strong squadron of battle airmen descended very low in order to shake the German defense by machine-gun fire and bomb-dropping. "On the flanks at Gouzeaucourt and Trescault our troops held out. The British three time3 stormed against Gouzeaucourt while Trescault held out against four partial attacks. "In the centre the British succeeded in pressing in the German lines. After bitter fighting Epehy and Ronssoy remained in the bands of the British. "Reports that after further artillery preparation there was another British onslaught about 4:00 a.m., but all attempts to advance from Ronssoy were stopped by machine-gun fire from the ruins of I/empire and the onslaught was defeated by a German counter-attack. "AH efforts to gain ground in the St. Quentin sector and broaden the attacking area south of the Somme likewise were unsuccessful. "All the fighting occurred on terrain in front of the Siegfried line, in spite of the greatest exertion of the enemy," it is declared. SON HAS HIS FATHER ARRESTED AS AN ENEMY South Band, Ind.-Henry Boetcher, aged 55, was arrested at his home charged with being an enemy alien. The affidavit was sworn to by-his son, Arthur W. Boetcher, who said his father had made many treasonable ut- terances. . "The only reason we are at war is because the president and Morgan and some of the other fellows loaned, so much money to the allies that they were afraid they Would lose too much )f the allies were whipped," is one of the statements alleged in tho affidavit.
