ALBERT AND ELIZABETH WITH ARMY
King Albert and Queen Elizabeth entered Ostend yesterday
; v afternoon, with the Belgian troops, being given a touching ovation
, .': y by the Belgian civilians left in the town by the Germans. The Bel
gian monarchs were welcomed back to Ostend bv a British naval
' force, Adrffiral Keyes having landed from the sea after a British,
' ; naval air squadron had reported the placed cleared of Germans. j
While King Albert was leading a portion of the Belgian armv !
: across the Yser and to Ostend, a second Belgian army was driving I
; . l' the German back upon Bruges, operating on both sides of the Thou- j
: ,J rout-Bruges road. This force later joined hands with the force to!
V1' the west and a line r.unning from
northeast of Ostend through Ou

being advanced last night close to
FRENCH TAKE TOWNS
The French, cooperating with
the Belgians and British, took a
f number of important towns in
' 1 V their drive .towards Ghent. These
' ; j included Vitthem.'Moulebeke and
. . Wypgheme. The Germans on this
y. section of the front offered a des

Jy ' From the region west of Thielt
. . south the Germans are being
- driven back at every point where
they are offering resistance, which
are few, the whole army of Gen
eral von Arnim being in retreat.
This army is estimated at seven
teen divisions, something over
three hundred thousand men.
BRITISH MAKE ADVANCES
On their main section of this
Northern France and Flemish
front the British made notable ad
vances from Courtrai to Douai.
The former city, an important
railroad point, was entered and
occupied. The British fifth army
advaAced and began to encircle
Lille, forcing a hasty retreat of
the German garrison, and the Bri
tish made a dramatic entry into
the famous old' city, marching in
with drums beating. Lille escap

Secretary McAdoo Urges Further
SubscnptionsvEo Liberty Loan '
-V Now Threatenied with Fkiltirfe
While Ainericaiis in prance have been winning one of the bloodiest battles of
the war, struggling forward against thousands of machine guns, through mud and
water, and dying undoubtedly by the hundreds, Americans at home arc failing to
makfe good. The Fourth Liberty Ioau, to raise a minimum of six billion dollars,
was only two-thirds subscribed up to noon yesterday and a sjiecial apjwal has leen
sent out by Secretary MVdoo, urging the nation behind not to fail their sons at
the front. '. 1 '
A special message haj leen sent by Secretary McAdoo to the people of Hawaii,
urging further subscriptions here, irrespective of the fact that the local campaign
has closed. The national-campaign is still open and it is still possible for those who
want to help the Nation aid the cause for which America tattles to place their sub
scriptions through the local banks by cable.
Mr. McAdoo cables Tjie Advertiser as follows:
"Subscriptions reported and estimated up to noon Thursday amount to four billion dol
lars, leaving at least two billion dollars to co nplete the Fourth Liberty Loan. Only two
days are left within which td, raise this vast sum. No country on earth but America could
raise so vast a sum in so shdrt a time.
"America can do it and. must do it. Thr destinies of the world and the hopes of civil
ization are centered upon America.
"We shall fall in everything we have fought for and hope to gain in this war if the
Fourth Liberty Loan is defeated.
"Let every true American citizen today examine himself under the white light of pa
triotism and say whether or not he has done his utmost in this emergency.
"The highest obligation of duty and patriotism command every true American to go im
mediately to his bank or to hi Liberty Loancommittee and subscribe to the limit of his abil
ity to .he Fourth Liberty Bonds.
Don't delay. Don't wait to be urged. Be as quick to do your part in this Fourth Lib
erty Loan battle as our soldiers in France are quick to obey the orders to charge trie enemy.
"Buy Liberty Bonds on the instalment plan if you cannot buy them for cash.
' Every patriotic, bank will help you. If every patriotic citizen will do his duty today,
victory for the Fourth Liberty, Loan is certain.
"The continued victories if our armies in Europe, the certain defeat of our enemies and
the glorious triumph of the; cause of liberty depend upon what the American people do in
the remaining two days of the Fourth Liberty Loan campaign.'
