MEETING OF MOOSE TONIGHT ROLL CALL AND ELECTION. C'rirfg Broken Watches to Share*. (BT ASSOCIATED PRESS TO THE REVIEW.) Standing firmly before the war atricken city of Rheims, the French have checked a new German drive launched laat night, five days after the offensive on the Montdidier-Noyon line came to a halt. The fighting; on the active battlefront has been extended to a point five miles southeast of tha cathedral city. At 6 o'clock Tuesday evening the Oerman artillery began a heavy bombardment between Vrigney, weat of Rheims, to the village of La Pomelle, oa the north bank of the Vesle river east of that city. Three hours later the Teutonic infantry stormed out of their trenches to begin the assault. According to the official statement.issued st Paris the Germans were nowhere successful in their attempts to enter the French lines, being repulsed with heavy losses. The front over which the new attack was launched is approximately fourteen miles in length. It has been expected that the Germans sooner or later would attempt to straighten out their- lines in this region, because the close of the Aisne offensive left the allies in a favorable position along the front from the Marne east of Chateau Thierry to the region north of Chalons. Having interior lines, they are able to quickly concentrate these forces on'either side 6Y the angle having its apex at Rheims. • The ground over which the Germans are attacking west of Rheims is rather high and irregular. To the north of the city it is more level and to the east the French, being between the enemy and the Vesle river, would be operating at a disadvantage were it not for wooded hills which they hold on each side of the village of La Pomelle. The connection between this assault and the one between Montdidier and Noyon last week is rather difficult to tcace, except that a straightening of the line would be of advantage to the foe. Raiding operations are reported from the British fronts in the Somme and Lys sectors. •Fierce attacks are being made by the Austrian* to overcome the Italian resistance along tbe Plave but the defensive line still holds. Appar eatly the enemy sees hi* only hope of success in enlarging his gains across tbe Plave, having been given a disastrous check in the mountains from west of Aslago to tbe Plave. Ia tbe mountlns the Aastrlans have been generally on tbe defensive since they were checked and then thrown back over the terrain gained Saturday in the first day of the offensive. The French and British around Aslago are under a heavy enemy bombardment and the French Tuesday repulsed a strong local Austrian effort Along the Val Suganna and against the bastion ot Mantegrappa tte ea emy holds further attack in abeyance. Along the nearly 30-mlIe Plave line the situation bas not improved greatly from an allied viewpoint although tbe Austrians bave been defeated at most points la efforts to enlarge their gains. Where and to what force the enemy ha* crossed tbe river and bow' far he has progressed into tbe Venetian plain are got outlined clearly ' but apparently the Italian* have given most ground on the north around Montello and on the south ef Capo Sile. From their foothold on Montello, an Important plateau three by eight miles in extent which dominates the country between Bassano and Tre vlso, the Austrians are intlrl"g violent attempts to drive the Italians off the height entirely while the Ital lans are fighting just aa determined ly to keep tbe enemy close to the river bank, the fighting of the past few days has been favorable to tte Italians. Ia the center from Maserda to Fossalta, the Austrian* gig being bald well to check' aad have been unable to make any progress acros* the Plave despite repeated attempts. Seemingly the Austrian* bave pushed bask tbe Italian* several miles between Fossalta and Cage Sile and along the Fosseta canal which runs southwest towards Venice. Capo atta la la th* lowlands along the Adriatic but if the enemy reaches tte Fosseta canal to tta north he would be better able to puah toward Mestre and outflank the line northward along tba Piave. What gains tte eaemy ha* made, however, bave been hardly commensurate with the preparation* made, tte shells expended and the Uvea lost Emperor Charles, unless his troops can maka swifter progress, will have to. call off his "hunger offensive" and face the populace at home.
