LONDON, Not. 7. The allies, con-
tinning their pressure on the ISO
mile front from the Scheldt to the
Meuse, made Important advances all
along the line yesterday.

by the French, In the center. They
shoved ahead nearly eight miles,
carrying their lines to within that
distance of Harson, which consti
tutes the northern gateway for the
German armies rapidly being trap
ped along the southwestern edge of
the Ardennes. A similar advance to
day may see the practical isolation
of these enemy forces completed, as
the Americans have virtually closed
the eastern exit In the Meuse region.
