DOUBLE SMASH EXPECTED

, TOyiARDTHEIROVJN BORDER
' j RIS,', September . 8-( Associated Press) Great at have been
? X the development! of Foch'a grand counter-offensive against von
'S LudendorT during th past six weeks, the events of the next six
4' weeks promise jto be on, a much greater scale and with a much great-
er corresponding result. ' ; 0 j
ToUiy thAUieJiave the German armies back, practically, on
tlffe litle from which, they advanced last March to bring a speedy
end to the war through a military victory for Germany. Soon,
within a few days probably, the real Allied offensive will be launch
ed and the work of driving the invaders back to their own borders
i will be tinder way. The developments of the past two weeks ap
pear to ensure a tremendous victory when this drive is started.
GAINS NOW WIPEp OUT
The, bulges in the German line, marking the several drives made
to open the way to Parts, to separate the British and the French
Jinnies and to capture the Channel Pprts, have disappeared. The
steady hammering by the Allies and the forced retreats by the Ger
mans have eliminated every one of the German gains and have de
prived the enemy of each of the strategic points from which it had
been the plan of the German general staff to launch fresh drives.
Mors than that, the victories of the British on the north and the
Franco-Americans on the south have placed them in a position to
carry out with every prospect of success what now appears evident
is Foch's plan, namely to turn the German line along the old Hin
denburg positions from both north and south.
BRITISH READY TO STRIKE
The British are already in position to start their part of the
general plan. In the north, for several days now, they have been
ready to strike a vital blow against Cambrai, but they have made
no move towards the attack which the situation indicates is inevit
able. Their delay has been to enable the Franco-Americans to drive
forward so as to place Laon, on the southern flank of the German
defensive line, in the same position as they now hold Cambrai. That
- time appears to be almost at hand and a whirlwind smash at both
German flanks, at Cambrai and Laon, may be expected.-
The unified command, with Foch directing the moves of all
ihe forces along the Allied front, makes certain that the expected
drives from north and south, will insure the maximum results.
FRENCH GAIN GLORIOUSLY
Yesterday the French armies under "General Debeny, General
Humbert and General Mangin, cooperating on a narrowing front,
made magnificent progress, drawing the net closer around LaFere
and making it more than ever certain that the Crown Prince will
not be able to find the refuge he peeks along the strong line of the
Chemins des Dames.
The French have swept forward all along the southwestern
elbow of the general line for gains at places of three, four and five
miles for the day. Ham and Chauny, positions which fell only on
Friday, are now well in the rear of their new rjpnt, while the ex
treme French left, south of Peronne, has been brought into align
ment with the British force sweeping . towsrds th. HimVenburg position he-
ween St. Qucntiu ami Cambrai.
The French line is now north of the St. Quentin Canal, where the bridge
had ami station at Tungy were captured early ia the afternoon. Following
thia capture (in. I the appearance of a French force north of the eanal, the
whole French line te the. east of the Canal Du Nord surged forward, abreast
of the British, reaching the western outskirts of Vau and running smith to
the St. tuentin Canal through Pluquieree and Happencourt, reaching the Homme
nc m. nmiDiiK, aiinoKT sonin or nt. iuentin and eight miles away.
OLD LUTE If KEOAIXZD
South of the Homme the French reached the Hindenburg line at several
poiuta and pierced it by the capture of tho Coucy Woods. North of the Ailette
Genernl Mangin scored an advance of more than three miles, clearing the Oer
man forces out of the Soucy Woods, while north of the Oise and between that
:iver und the Homme the progress was steady and iipportant. The German
rear guards were overcome at all pointa and a number of prisoners were taken.
The, French line, from where it joina the British until It joins the Ameri
(una ou the Aisne Canal, runs ks follows: From Vuax to Fluquieres to Happen
court to St. Simon and southeast alotg the line of the railroad between J ussy
and Ham to Tergnier, three miles west of La Fere; thence to Bariais aux

BRITISH AGAIN SOOBE HEAVILY-
The Briti-.li scored heavily all along their front except on those new sectors
where they have crossed the Hindenburg line and are withholding their effort
for the French advance. Even on that front they improved their positions us
necessary. The, gains were general along the entire line from llavriucuurt
Wood, eight miles southwest of Cambrai to Ypres.
Along seventeen miles of the southern portion of this line the Germans
were forced back au'd several strategic points west of the Canal du Nurd were
taken, including Beauvoie. At places the British progress was unexpectedly
nipid and a number of prisoners were taken.
In Flanders the British continue to
push their way towards the Messines

"As an instance the battle at Cha- I

the third game of the pennant race by a
2 1 score.

honors about even between Kays of
the winners and Vaughn of the losers.
Vaughn's undoing came in the fourth
Inning when Boston found him for four
singles on which the Red Sox scored
their two runs of the battle. On two
hits, in the fifth, Chicago sent Chi. lie
Pick across the plate for their one lone
tally of the game.
In the following inning it looked as if
Chicago would score again, but all went
for nothing, and in th ninth inning
it seemed again as if the Cubs would
tie the score, for Pick hai stolen second
and gone to third on a passed ball, only
to go out ot the plate when he tried
to steal the rubber. . Barber had been
sent to hat for Deal but the side was
retired before he could accomplish any
thing. Twirlers Break Eren
On hits Vnughn nud Mays broke

being the only extra base hit of the
gume. I'ick 's stolen base was the
first credited to Chicugo in this series,
while Wliitemoji and Thomas got the
first pilfered sacks, also in this game,
Boston played an errorless game, but

was u scrappy one from start to finish,
ami nny one's until i'ick was put out

Pershing's nmcial reports
of the present activities of the
American army on the Aisne
state that the continual pressure
of the Americans is forcing the
lierman line back along the front
towards Rheims. The enemy is
falling back east of Revillon and
on the center of the line, at Con-de-Rheims.
In the general advance the Am
ericans are taking some prisoners,
these explaining that the Ger
mans on this front are very short
of officers. It has been found that
in many cases companies liavo
had no captains, being under the
command of lieutenants. The pris
oners state that this is now more
or Jess general, lieutenants being
in charge of companies, captains
in command of battalions and
majors leading regiments.
REINFORCED, MOVED ON
Yesterday morning the Franco
American lines were strengthened
by reinforcements which had been
brought up overnight, while need
ed supplies had also arrived. This
enabled the delayed advance to
be resumed and the Franco-Americans
reached their Aisne lines
on the north paralleling the Aisne
Canal, to the north of which the Ger
mans are entrenched to hold the front
while the main Merman army continues
Allied guns are now pounding the
crossroads over which the frown Prince
Is withdrawing his forces.
KBW CASUALTY XEPO&TB
It was explained here yesterday that
General Pershing haa sdopted a new
plan for reporting casualties, while it
was disclosed that the casualty lists
which have been sent to America from
American headquarters in France have
not contained the names of those only
slightly wounded. Replying to a re
cent query of the war department, Gen
eral Pershing report that the number
of slightly wounded up to August 2'
who have not been included iu the
casualty lists, Is about twenty thou
sand. The reason he hat not been
cabling the names of these slightly
wounded to America is beeause the
i gerat majority of them could recover
from their wounds before their names
could be. published.
From now on, Pershing will send the
l names of those wounded to Paris by
I courier twice weekly, with hospital
records. Only the names of those
silled in action or dead of wounds and
those who are officially posted as miss
ing will be cabled.
