"To them i.-i committed the task of

? canvass being made of the mem

discloses the fact that the majority
of members have already completed
th* ir pledges by purchasing stamps
to ihut amount. Many of these pur
chases were made during the current
month, and. as a result, it ia expected
that the District of Columbia will re

Berlin officially admitted tonight
that the German center between

that the main line Is still Intact.

The fiercest all-day struggle raged

five miles due west of Le Catelet
