Although the Americans were outnumbered more than two to one, the correspondent of the Associated .Press with the American army in France telegraphed under date of Monday, that the Germans were completely repulsed and were driven back into their own trenches. The known enemy casualties included 64 dead, many wounded, and 11 prisoners, besides a number of wounded who were dragged back to the German lines by their comrades. CAMPAIGN FOR THE THIRD ;..
