MARCH REVIEWS
BULGAR DEFEAT
WASHINGTON, Soptemher 'S (Of
firial) Gen. Peyton March, chief of
taff, in his weekly review said the
impending collapse of Bulgaria s a
direct result of the concentration of
American forces on the west front.
Hitherto whenever a section of the
Central Powers was nieua I, explained
General March, Germany had been side
to withdraw divisions from the western
front to bolster up threatened points.
"That day is itow past," said March
"a a result of the concentration of
the entire American armv on the west
ern front. This forced the German
goneral staff to keep intact its whole
strength in France."
He said that the elimination of Bui
garia, should a separate peace be urant
ed, would foreshadow the isolation ol
Turkey and possibly the reentry of
RBinania into the war. The effect of
these events on the grand strategy of
the war, he said,
is obvious.

i ne Allies are smashing
the German defenses along
four distinct sectors of ther.i
west front between the North
Sea and Verdun.
Serious inroads have been
made in the Hun line north of
Ypres, around Cambrai inthe
Artois, north of the Aisne
and on the Champagne sec
tors.
The British last night were
within a mile and three-quarters
of Cambrai and had over
come all the natural obstacles
making up the defenses of
that city. The Cambrai-Douai
road has been cut and made
useless to the enemy.
In the Balkans the Allies
are pressing the Bulgarians

LONDON, September 29 t Associat
ed Press! In one of the' most success
ful of rexent smashes along tha Brit
ish front in France Goneral Haig yea
terdny drove his lino to within a mile
and three quarter of Cambrai nnd that
city apparently lies at the mercy of his
troops this morning. In his advance
yesterday he took ten thousand pris-
oners, raore-than two hundred guns and
ten towns and villages.
The drive was along a front of
twelve miles, defended by nearly a j
hundred and fifty thousand Germans, j
who fought desperately but who failed
wholly in stemming the British rush
almost to the gntes of the important
objective city. The British cut and
smashed their way through every nat
ural obstacles between their front and
Cambrui, carrying one line of defense
after another and advancing over th
bodies of the Germans they had killed.
Cut Cambrai Doual Boad J
The advance generally was to a depth
of two miles, while the Canadians
gained nearly three miles and brought
the British line to the Cambrai Douni
road, cutting that and forming a wedge
between these two strategic points.
The battle was opened yesterday
morning on a six mile front directly
w est of Cambrai, the British taking
some ground and then boing chocked
jj nciivv vterninn couuicrs, ine uerman
attack overlnptiing the advancing Brit
ish front and extending as far south
as Beaiicnmp. The Tommies held the
charging Germans, broke their offen
sive and then advanced against and
through the beaten Huns, driving them
as fur as the eastern edge of Snilly,
two miles northwest of Cambrai. Ljttor
Sailly was cleared and the Tommies
fought in still closer to the city.

Among the places taken are Marco
