battle front; however, it Is Impossible
for Von Hindenburg to devote his at

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
