PENDULUM NOW SWINGS TO
SLIGHTLY FAVOR ENTENTE
London. Russians, Rumanians
and Franco-Serbians are continuing
their hammering against lines of the
central powers on every eastern and
southeastern front today. At some
points Germans and Austrians are
attacking fiercely, but according to
advices at all capitals the larger suc
cesses are being won by the arms of
the entente allies.
French troops are today co-ordinating
trenches and positions wrest
ed from Germans yesterday at'Sailly
Saillisel on the west front, at which
ploint sporadic German attempts to
recapture positions are going on with
increasing intensity.
Fighting about Cernavoda for pos
session of great Danube span that
forms longest bridge in Europe,
where for days Russian right wing
is reported from Petrograd to have
patly succeeded in turning Macken
sen's left flank, apparently has
reached its most critical stage.
.Military experts believe result at
Cernavoda will depend partly on 50
mile forward dash of Russo-Ruma-nians
against Gen. Falkenhayn's ar
mies in Transylvania far below Bu
kowinan border, where defensive
movements have been succeeded by
a sledge-hammer offensive. Any
measurable success in this region, ex
perts believe, must weaken Cernavo-da-Constanza
front of Mackensen.
Paris. A most violent battle is
raging with continued success for
French-Serbo forces in region about
big bend in Cerna river.
Bucharest. On right of Alt valley
Rumanians have been forced to yield
ground . in region of Saracibste.
Enemy attacks oh left were repulsed.
Petrograd. German naval forces
bombarded Finnish coast Friday
under cover of fog. . Number of ves
sels sunk.
Berlin, via Sayville. German
troops still hold eastern edge of Sail-ly-Saillisel
position. Only groups of
hostile detachments feeling their
way along Danube have attacked
Gen. Mackensen's extreme lpft wing
in the Dobrudja and these were
forced back.
London. Considerable number of
prisoners were taken when British
troops captured German position on
both banks of Anore river.

VILLISTA BAND IS MARCHING
TOWARD PERSHING OUTPOST
El Paso, Tex., Nov. 13. About 300
mounted Villistas under Bandit Lead
er Quevedo today are proceeding
from the vicinity of Gallego toward
the outposts of Gen. Pershing's
American expedition at El Valle,
about 50 miles distant.
This is the same band that raided
a Mexican central railway passenger
train and killed 29 guards while
searching for Americans at Lamuna
recently. The Carranzistas, how
ever, do not believe the bandits will
hazard an attack unless they en
counter a small reconnoitering force
of Americans.
United States government officials
reported today that a military train
of Carranzistas has been captured at
Fresno, just outside Chihuahua City,
by Cillistas.

PRESIDENT IN WASHINGTON,
GETS DOWN TO WORK
Washington, Nov. 13. President
Wilson was back at work in Wash
ington today. He faced a vast job
which must be cleaned up rapidly.
Pending receipt of a message from
Charles Evans Hughes, conceding
Democratic victory in the election,
the president withheld any an
nouncement regarding his policies
for the next four years. He has in
timated to immediate friends, how
ever, that he will issue some state
ment upon receipt of Hughes' con
gratulations. The president will start work very
soon on the message to congress, to
be read when that body re-convenes
next month.
