FRENCH HOLD THEIR

GROUND.

PARIS, May 7

It is semi-officialiy stated that the incredable violence of German attacks on Hill 304 failed to overwhelm the French. The battle has been resumed during the last forty-eight hours with a fury, unknown prior to the great Verdun conflict. After repeated failures to capture Hill 304 from the rear the Germans attempted a flank movement involving a frontal attack on the northern slopes. This movement was accompanied by an intense bombarbment by guns of the biggest calibre to which the French batteries replied vigorously. The Germans at some [points reached the front French dnes, but the northern slope is now a neutral zone the French holding the summit and the Germans being at the bottom of the hill. The German bombarbment continues with sustained intensity. Their infantry is not moving owing probably to overwhelming losses.
