BERLIN, Oct. 7 (via London). Large German and Austrian forces
have invaded Serbia, crossing the Drljia, Save and Danube Rivers at marry

From other sources it was reported that a second German army was
concentrated on Serbia's western frontier. It is this army, apparently,

The Austro-Gcrmans, in all probability, will strike quickly for the
railway leading through Nish and Sofia to Constantinople. Bulgaria Is,
expected fo enter the war by invading Serbia's eastern frontier, cutting
the Salonica-Nish railway and thus shutting Serbia off from railway com
munication with the outside world.
