GERMANS AND AUSTRIANS
FIGHT AMONGST THEM-
PETROGRAD, April 30 Enemy deserters state when the flooding of the Austro German trenches at Pinsk necessitated their withdrawal the Germans retired first, leaving the Austrians to hold the trenches. The Austrians were so incensed that a bloody hand to hand fight followed in which one hundred were killed and wounded, German and Austrian troops hurried to help their comrades and the fight became so serious that the German staff sounded an alarm that a Russian attack was taking place. The ruse was successful.
