In spite of the tremendous efforts

The Allied line today runs south
from Solssons to (Srand IJozoy and
then It begins to turn tn the cast. It
passes Just north of Kcre-en-Tarde-nols
and Lontinues to the apex of the
wedge at the village of Nesles, where
It turns that ply south toward Hon

region seems to have placed them In a

BOLSHEVIK REGIME
NEAR END OF TETHER
By the Associated Press
London. July 31.
Information reaching Stockholm,
hays the correspondent of the Times
there, shows that the Bolshevik re
gime has come to the end of Its tether,
and that the Russian masses work
men and peasants are nbout to rise
tn arms against Holshevlkl tyranny.
OfIirl.il repietentnttves of tho Social
Revolutionary nnd Social Democratic
parties In Russia, have arrived In
Stockholm, says the correspondent, and
have Issued a remarkable appeal to the
socialists of Europe. They call upon
the socialists to form nn international
commission, representing all socialist
parties, to visit Russia and ascertain
by direct Investigation whether the
Russian socialists are not right In de
claring that fhe Bolshovlkl have
brought widespread evils on Russia,
destroyed Industry, caused universal
starvation, despotically oppressed the
people and are now concerned only In
retaining power at all cost
The representatives are Rusannoff,
for the Social Revolutionaries and
Axel-Rod for the Social Democrats.
They represented their respective par
ties In Stockholm In the summer of
1917, when an abortive attempt was
made to organlzo an lnter-soclallst con
ference. DENY ALLIED ENVOYS

Although the Allied gains during the
last twenty-four hours nmj seem small,
some nf them had bten exceedingly
significant, telegraphs Rculer'h corre
spondent nt the American ft nut In
.lance The chief feature of the it cent
lighting, lie sas is the French advance
from Oulchy-le-l'hate.iu. which carried
the villages of Gland Rozoy and Cugny
and swept the Germans off of the Butte
cf I'halninnt This hill was a center of
enemy resistance along the western sldo
of the salient
German guns situated on the Butte of
Chalmont had been able to rake the
Kolssons-Chateau-Thierry rond almost as
far as Vlllemontolre and hurl a cro.a
rlre upon the advancing French and
American troops In the valley of the
Ourcn, The French now are able to
harass from this hill the enemy s retire
ment nnd should be able to clear the
angle .between the Solssons-Chateau-Thleny
rond and the railroad between
Oulehy-le-Chate.iu and Flames and bring
much needed assistance to the Amer
icans In the village of Serlnges.
It will be a costlv task to take the
Nesles Forest, but ther are alternative
possibilities In the comparatively open
giound to the westwaid The railroad,
which is the kev to the Ourcq Valley, Is
in Allied hands. The correspondent
writes:
"The enemy may certainly plume him
self nn his retirement according to plan,
but it can .caieely be according to plan
that he left hundreds of tons of ammuni
tion behind him There is ns et no con
ception of the enormous figures to which
tbe.e losses In materials of war will run
When the vast numbers of shells actual
ly captured are added to til" millions of
shells exnlnded cither by himself or bv
the AMiert tire, some Idea of his loss may
be gained Tho enemy has moved his
gunB wonderfull. well, but his gunners
have been warned to be snarln" of am
munition and to file only when necessary
to support his Infantry "

Buy for Quality Alone Today
Curtailment in Production Makes
Quality the Only Economy at Present
3C3C
Today war-time conditions make de
pendability the first essential in your
automobile.
It is not a question of convenience
but necessity.
The business man speeding up pro
duction of war materials the farmer
trying to make two. bushels grow where
Dne grew before the women giving their
time day in and out to war activities
would find their efforts suddenly cut in
two without their automobiles.
And yet who knows where curtailment
in automobile production is going to
6top? Who knows how long the steady
drain of expert mechanics to govern
ment service must continue?
One thing is sure. You mustf use your
automobile for a greater number of
years. You must exact harder service ,
from it. So you must have quality. You
can no longer rely on the pleasant prac
tice of driving your car a short time and
then exchanging it for a new one.
Here tlien is the big reason for order
ing your Super-Six and ordering it
now.
It almost seems as if Hudson engi
neers built three years ago with the
present situation in mind.
In the wonderful Super-Six motor
they put power and endurance beyond
anything previously attained.
Then they proved the Super-Six by
the most grinding series of tests to which
'an automobile had ever been subjected
race track mountain climbs cross
continent tours the daily experience of
thousands of motorists.
The Super-Six is the car which will
"carry on" no matter how long you must
drive it. It makes you more independent
as far as the scarcity of service median-'
ics is concerned.
If you want a Super-Six, make sure of
it. Order it now. The demand at pres
ent and for some time past has been so
insistent that, even with exceptionally
high prices offered for used Super-Sixes,
there are not enough Hudsoris to go
around. It is only the part of wisdom to
anticipate your needs even a year distant.
