Several months before Germany d"-

He was sent to the front with th"j;nlo ;jlis pa,t 0f tju. souihern battle line and thereby eompel the enemy
army. His wife got letters occasion-io ieadjcst the fitnl throcgh Chamaign to the Meuse. '
allv from his the fu-st two years ofj Around Grand IVi , north of the Argone Forest, the Americans hav
the war. His letters th n ceased and

the American Red Cross to endeavor
to learn thi fate of her husband, j

to work rather than fight.

will end before leng go Vr husband

AMERICAN'S ENTER BATTLE.
Washington, October 'thirty-three thousand Austrian troops, hun
dreds of guns and innumerable machine guns have been captured by Ital
ians and allied forces on the Italian front, said an official d'spateh today
from Rome. The Three Hcndred and Thirty-Serond American Infan
try regiment has gone into action and the fighting now "extends practically
all along the course of the IMavq River.
The Austrian are resisting sti.bfcrny, throwing in many new divisions
but have not been able to stop the advancing forces.
Th dispatch follows:
Our offensive is developing farther south, said the dispatch, and stretched"
practically all along the course of the Piave. The Third army is now yi ac

The enemy is resisting with cxcept:onaI stubborness, and is throwing into
the fray new division without, however, being successful in holding back
our trocps. On the Grappa region the troops of the first Italian army, with
