paring to make his' next stand.
The advent of the Allies was the
occasion , of., the greatest enthu
siasm on the part of the wearied
Italian soldiers who could hardly
believe their eyes -when they saw
the colors of. Great. Britain .and
France. The news spread from
rank to' rank and from regiment
to regiment V and . has served, to
greatly, hearten the Italians.
Military experts said last flight
they, believed General Cadorna
would make his stand 'upon the
, Piavc River and that preparation?
for It had been making for the
past several days. V'
. Yesterday. five German armie?
l kept pounding on the ' Italian
front ili an effort to overrun the
Venetian ' plain. " The enemy

ians were retiring but 'said th
retirement wa9 being made, in
good order from the Tagliamente
River toward the Livenzo River
but despatches from Berlin, claim
ed the retirement was disorderly
that on the Isonzo front the Ger
man advance continued uncheck
ed and that thousands of .prison-'
ers have been taken?'
General 'Maurice, '. speaking ir
London yesterdayrnade the start
ling statement that, the retire
ment had long since been planned
by Cadorna. He said: "Th
withdrawal of the Italians' Tag
liamcnto line need give .,no un
easiness and cause no worry. It
has always been a part of the
plans of General Cadorna,"
He does not believe the figuro
as to prisoners taken which havr
been given out by the Germans
'.' Anot her startling statement
was made in London by Viscount
French who said that Great Bri
tain must be prepared
for anv -
eventuality and that the next sur
nsc "might even be an invasiof
f the British Isles themselves."
The British armies in Palestim
have, captured the. coast cityof
Gaza, about fify miles from Jeru

point on the Mediterranean abou'
100 miles below Jaffa. Many
roads lead 'from it to the Holy
