Von linden burg has veen compelled, as the result of last week's lighting by thajJLmerl cans, to abandon his hold on the Argonne forest, south of the Grand pre pass, and to begin preparations for a retreat from the Champagne hrough Luxemburg before General Fershlng closes the main Luxemburg highway leading into Germany from France. Simultaneously with their advance toward the Luxemurg road at Stcnay, the American developed a. new threat last week against a German re tirement from the Champagne by way of Belgium. This movement, which contains pes sibilitles of great Importance, Is di rect from the west, towiird the forest town of Hirson. If Hirson falls to the Americans, it will not be possible for the Germans In the Champagne to move around the western tip of the Ardennes massif and conduct their retreat by way of Liege. Defends Wooded nelshta. Hirson Is theVwestrrnmost defense of the Ardennes forest and hllsl. Stenay is the protecting point which guards the southeastern approaches to the Ardennes. The distance be tween the two Is about sixty miles. If General Pershing's armies can occupy both strategic centers almost simultaneously, the German troops In the Champagne must take refuge In the difficult highlands of, the Ardennes, where adequate, supplies cannot reach them and where., their losses in guns and munitions wlf be enormous. Von Hindenburg clearly sees this trap. Because of It he has started an extensive retreat along the whole of his Champagne front. He has started to blow us ammunition dumps north of Lille.

The Americans and British are now facing the enemy across the river, be tween La Cateau and Solesmes. Other Americans, to the southward, are mixed up with both British and French In the fighting for possession of Andlgny forest, east of Bohaln. The allied troops found Bohaln practl cally Intact, the Germans having no time to destroy and plunder It to the extent which marked their leave-taking from other French towns. In the last fire days the "Wild Cat" division has taken 3,000 prisoners, be tween SO and 60 cannon, and several hun dred machine guns. Since September 20 It has recovered 150,000 square yards of French territory. SERBS SIX MILES FROM CITY OF NISH LONDON, Oct. 13.

CUTTINGlmUM DEFENSE RETREA doubtless already besrun to move some of his reserve supplies back into Germany by way of Luxemburg. He cannot return S very large quantity, however, because of the possibility that If this Is done Marshal Foch win make a sudden assault and break through the Inadequately protected Champagne line. German Plight Critical. The present situation in the Cham pagne Is the most critical the Ger mans have bad to face since their re treat began along the west front last July, i Owing to British pres sure on th northern part of the battle front; however, it Is Impossible for Von Hindenburg to devote his at tention exclusively to the extrication of his Champagne armies before the eastern and western exits are dosed. The British progress this week south of Oambrai and about Doual Is pushing the Germans back to tho Valenclennes-Maubeuge line, near the Belgian border. This Is the last position the Germans have before they must enter Belgium. If Valenciennes and Maubeuge fall without a serere struggle, definite notice will have been served by Von L Hindenburg that he Intends to evacu ate western Belgium. With these two concentration points wrested from the enemy, there remains no natural line of defense south of Brussels. Brussels Itself is not fortified. If .the Germans seek to retain posses sion of Brussels for trading purposes at the peace conference, their last positions tmust be established at Waterloo. The relinquishment of Waterloo would mean the evacua tion of Brussels. It la toward Waterloo. ' therefore. that Field Marshal Halg is now push ing Von Hindenburg from the Doual and Cambrai sectors. BERLIN ANNOUNCES GREAT DEFEAT OF ALLIES BERLEf, via London, Oct IS. Defeat of an "immensely superior force" of French and Americans in the Champagne fn a two neels' battle has enabled "smooth execution" of the Ger man retirement fn the Alsne bend, the German war office an nounced yesterday. A retirement west of Bona! was also reported. "West of Doual we withdrew ur lines," the statement said. 'The enemy, slowly following, occupied the line of Vendln-le-Tiell, Harnes, and Hanin-LIc-tard. "In the Champagne, General von Ernems victory over im mensely superior Franco-American forces in a fortnight's strug. gle and exhaustion of the enemy has rendered possible the smooth execution of our retirement In tho Alsne bend. 0n both sides of Bohafn, Brit ish, French and American at tacks were repulsed."

Itegtjm ?BieaaTrtqnK SYSTEM LONDON. Oct. 13. The entire Ger man defense system has been -broken up by the terrific blows of the allied armies, snd especially the British, durinr thV past week. If the breach beyond Cambrai Is extended much farther by British and American troops, a debacle of the armies of Crown Prince Rupprecht is a pos- sioiiiiy. Six week of the best fighting weawcr is apsoiuteiy essential to develop to the fullest extent the re sults of the allied operations during we two montns. The hammerlike blows of the al lies in the region of La Cateau now. Imperil the retreat of German forces from the salients both to the nortn ward and 'southward. The most competent military au thorities say that If the present situation nad prevailed a month ago the war certainly would h,ave ended during the present year. uiven suitable weather, they as sert that General Foch still has a wonderful chance to have "his bat tle," thereby so crippling the German armies that the Kaiser's peace cry win change to a devout supplication. The German line Is crumbling, be- (cause the enemy has Insufficient guns and because HIndenburg's attempt to conserve nis divisions by shortening tne cattle line has failed. The startling fact remains that the German line from the North sea to Rhelms now is 100 miles, the same distance it waa'bn August 8. At the same time the battle line from the North sea to the UoseDe river Is 318, miles, or only thirty-tight, miles less than It was on August 8, In spite of the fact that the Germans have been forced to evacuate the Argonne and St. Mlhlel salients.
