I ondo n ce es of the allied army, winch is try- ing to turn 'the German right wing are claimed in an official announce- ment issued at Paris this, afternoon. It is said that the allies' Western "ig has advanced considerably and Peromie has been occupied after a des- peratc''struggle. Peronne is 75 miles north of Paris and 25 miles north of Lassignv. near where au advance by :Iie allies was announced in yester- day afternoon's oflicial statement. The position o't.Peroiine indicates the .movement of the allies left wing -which' is much farther north than their main battle line. The turning movement of Franco- British forces first directed against General Von Kluck in an effort, to en- velope his. army appears, from unof- ficial to have met stub- born resistance from strong. German reinforcements. The Paris announcement says that gonne forest there were no import- ant engagements today BATTERING RAM GLinUN RIGHl Paris, Kept. M formidable force the, Germans threw against the allies' left is still flinching, according to the official communication, under the unrelenting blowrs of the Franco- English 'battering ram. Even the fam- ous Guards, as in the battle of Marne, are .unable to stand the pres- sure and are giving a little more every day GERMANS ATTEMPT TO BREAK 4ROUGH The diversion attempted in Lor- Continue Advance on the Over Germans Also raine having proven ineffectual, the Germans arc now making a fierce drive in the Wocvre district, north- east of Verdun. The object, no doubt, is to cut off the army operating around Nancv but the Germans al- ready had tried to make an opening between Verdun and Tpul, besieging I'royon at tlfe same time. It is doubt- ful that they will .succeed anv.-betfeer this time than t-hev did 'in the former attempt. Nevertheless the manoeuvre con- stitutes a grave picnace to -tbe allies, who arc resisting desperately and hate thus fat repulsed- the attacks' with heavy losses.
