WHERE HE STARTED.
GERMANS FIERCE ATTACKS FAIL.
PARIS, May 10
A semi-official message says the German objective west of the Meuse is still Hill 304. Three German attacks on Monday night in dense formation were attempted in a frontal and enveloping assault, but all completely failed and the enemy suffered heavy losses. Renewed attempts on Tuesday met with the same fate. It is believed that the Germans employed three fresh divisions which were decimated. Thus after five days furious assault, costing enormous sacrifices, a recrudescence of the Verdun offensive, unprecedented in violence, leaving the enemy exactly where he started. SHIPBUILDERS BATTALIONS. LONDON, May 10 Mr Runciman replying to Lord Lonsdale regarding the expenditure on shipbuilding promised to consider a suggestion to form shipbuilding battalions on the lines of the Dockers battalions.
