For the moment, the eye of the
allied world are turned away from
the front in France toward the hith
erto inactive front In Albania, where
the French and Italian continue to
path successes sgsinst Austrian.
While it is not expected that far
reaching results will be brought about
the movement has great possibilities
The fighting is along a line sixty
miles, from the river Devoll to th
Adriatic. Easad Pasha and ths Al
banians are fighting the Invaders
from the north by side of the allies.
Though seventy miles from Salon
iki, the enemy ranks there already
exhibit symptoms of nervousness, for
th Austro-Bulgar right wing may be
outflanked and there are signs thst
the offensive may be launched north
from Saloniki at the same time
against the war weary Bulgarians.
The political results will be not-'
able for the successes they will bring
to the side of th allies the hill tribes
which are among the finest fighters
in ths world.
