Striking proof that the German
power is fast crumbling came this 1
week in the. announcement by Gen
eral March, chief-of-staff, that the
news from all battle fronts was "con
tinuously good," and that 1,750,000
American troops have now been em
barked for overseas service.
"Just six months ago," said Gen.
March, "the enemy thing his lull mil
itary power against the British lines
in Picardy in the great drive thai was
to end the war in a smashing victory.
Today he is fighting desperately to
hold the tottering Hindenburg line,
the defensive system from which he i
struck that blow and back into which i
he has been hurled.

American armies have broken defi- j

American forces in France are more
than half as strong as the whole Ger
man array and the tide of American
fighting men .toward l;raree is con
tinuing at an even pace."
The western battle wall has been
rebuilt by the allied and American
forces, according to national capital
observers. When the first American
army swiftly trampled out the St.
Milji 'l salient the last possibility of a
German strategic stroke passed. The

the North sea to the Swiss border.
Along the center of the great
sweep of the front. British and
French armies are. storming ahead
night and day, harrying antl harass
ing the battered German divisons
without rest. Pershing's men stand
before Metz anl Conflans and against
that new threat the enemy must
gather reserves here on this new
front at the very time when every
available reserve division is sorely
needed to meet the allied rush to the
north. Signs of further withdrawal
are manifest along the German front.
In payment for their lavish expen
diture of lives in the abortive of
fensive, the German leaders have now
been compelled by formal decree to
reduce the fighting strength of every
Infantry unit. Instead of 980 men
in each battalion there are now only
850 under the revised organization
