Solid Allied Line The Junction has a further significance in that it would mean that a solid Allied line would be descending on the Reich frontier and the Siegfried Line along an unbroken 400-mlle front. There is a strong possibility that the Junction between the northern and southern armies has been effected because spearheads - of Gen. Patch's forces have peitetiated the Chaux Forest where Gen. Patron's troops are shown to be operating. Race to Chaux Forest - West of Besanoon the Germans set up a strong defensive line along the Louie River between the villages of Paray and Quincey but the advancing Americans breached it after a bitter engagement and dashed on to Chaux Forest. At the western end of the advance. French columns fighting under the command of Gen. Patch have overrun Givry, five miles east of Chalon and reached another point ten mileB north of Chalon with the capture of Allery. Seal Off Border The swiftly advancing French are now more than 75 miles north of the liberated city of Lyon while the Yanks on the eastern flank have sealed off the entire French-Italian Alpine border.
