It began at dawn along a front extending about five miles between Theiines and' Mally-Raineval. The result was in addition to the capture of several hundred Germans and the seizure'o'f a number of important points which the enemy had occupied whence he prob- aSly intended to make another forward bound. This ground has been the scene of nearly a dozen fierce encounters since April 4. The Germans have thrown at least 15 divisions into the fray at · different periods in an obstinate effort to reach their objective. ._. Before the French went over the top today the Germans evidently saw that an ..action was brewing.. They sent poisonous shells but did not do much harm. The French artillery preparation was extremely vigorous. Then the infantry .went forward in a dense mist with a fine rain. The ground was in terrible condition. The soldiers went over their knees in the mud but those veterans of the Somme were not .dismayed.

A peti- 1 tion for a pardon, signed by 3,000. women of Geneva, was sent to the | crown princess of Germany nearly a i year ago.

The outskirts of Castel were reached an'd the garrison of that town was menaced. Farther south other French units occupied the dominating heights and advanced toward Anthim farm on the road between Ailly-Sur-Noye and Moreuil. Everywhere the Germans offered the sternest opposition but nothing could stay the French advance. .-· . · ' " ,. . -j . . . When, thejighting calmed down prisoners were still coming in.- A number of machine guns fell into the ha'nds of the French. The German casualties were very heavy. 6EKHAKS KEPUtSED IX GIVEXCHT ASSAULT. LONDON, April 19.--The Germans were completely repulsed MAKE OF PHYSICALLY FIT, TOTAL OK ius REACHED $MOD.

TROOPS BUSHING TO FRANCE. April 19.--Premier Orlando announced in the Cham- tter of Deputies today that Italian troops would 'be dispatched to the battlefront in France. The announcement, which was received with a storm of applause, was as follows: "Italy, which follows with admiration the heroic efforts of the Anglo-Freach troops on the western front, could not remain absent from the battlefield of France. She wishes to bring to her allies tangible proof of solidarity and very soon the colors of Italian -regiments will fly over the fields of Picardy beside those of the French, British, American, Belgian and Portuguese, thus sealing the union which exists between the allies peoples fluence, in securing com missions, from' lieutenancies up, in the Ordnance, Quartermasters, intelligence. j or some other department, for no other purpose than to escape service at the front. The uniform of the American soldier, instead of being an insignia of dare and do for the country, is being desecrated by. its use as a shield ajid protection to slackers. "And I further object to the real soldier; officers or privte'--tie man who m'cst face danger for his country --being required on al! occasions to deferentially salute such .non-combatant commissioned officers. This tends to destroy the morale of the army, and "This i [rally round (lie fla.g and don't shoot til! you see the whites of thoir eyes stuff is dead. It's gone long ago.
