Reuters Correspondent at American Headquarters says: The enemy is feeling the effects of our [American] prolonged bombardment. Our aeroplanes are meeting less opposition owing to urgent demands on enemy aircraft elsewhere. Our machines are effectively assisting gunners in keeping the Aisne bridges and their approaches under constant fire. All supplies for the Germans south of the Aisne must daily cross by bridges over the Somme which are always unserviceable owing to our fire. Hence they are still good targets. Immediately the dense morning mists have dissipated, overpowering heat is responsible for the surrender of many Germans. They say they are unable to sleep at night owing to our artillery fire and persistent bombing, which have also reduced their supplies of food.
