I GERMANY HEARING . , ! I BRINK OF DISASTER I ON FRENCH SOIL iMarshal Foch's Broom Sweeping Enemy Back on Wider Section Than Ever Before and Germans Are Dumfoundcd ' Jg Ludendorff Letting Prussia's Time to Escape Slip by and Every Day Growing Worse j .2 for German Armies. j mm In PARIS, Oct. 12. Today finds Ger- RH ' SJnany a litUo nearer the brink of dis- WM Caster. Marshal Foch's broom applied I. jn the Champagno. has swept the Cenemy back from a wider section of Sttho front than over before. Tt General Ludendorff is reaping tho results of tho cardinal error ho made -in thinking thai the allied offensives tJ-'ero bound to bo spaced at wide in - torvals, like his own. The continuity of tho attacks has literally dumbfounded "-tho Germans and it is plain that there vacillation at grand German head quarters. J?- The evacuation of tho Belgian coast .appears to have been ordered and then (Jftl countermanded which justifies the ln- Rnifl m Terence that General Ludendorff is no I mm ' vlonger guided by purely military con- I 'Hi ".slderations either from tho demoraliz- 11 . Ing effect rotreat on a large scalo ifM ; would havo on tho interior, or with tho iw -idea that tho more territory that re- 'H inains in his hands the stronger will be 'H Germany's position in its conversa- jifl -lions with Washington.

Tho allied commander-in-chief seems to be applying that principle in France. The Gorman front forms a vast salient from tho Escaut to the Meuso, the extreme point of It being at Anizy. Marshal Foch Is attacking it not alono on one flank but on both al- tcrnately, whilo ho is pressing the: center in the section between La Fero and Berry-au-Bac to prevent the enemy's breaking contact and slipping away. At the beginning of tho week It was i the turn of the left of tho allied forces. which struck in the direction of Mau-j beugc and Guise. Yesterday it was tho right that delivered tho blow, aiming it in tho direction of Mczieres. Wheth er both wings broko through, or only one Is immaterial. The result would bo J the samo and the longer the Germans resist thG"SVonsc for thcmv Every day adds to tho wastago of their effective, material and If they hold on loo long! their retreat will become a rout ! i 111 LEAGUE 10 FISH UP ITS 1 I BUSIES AT MEETING H DECEMBER ' Sf NEW YORK, Oct. 12. The good old D ' "National league will officially go into I retirement for the duration of the war j ' -tit Its meeting here December 10. I I Basoball, in so far as the mother I,; league is concerned, will be buried If' 2untll the piping times of peace return Ijj'K1 "Ao this troubled globe of ours, and the I' t business affairs of the league will be I ' jh .wound up. I V .This Is the intention of the mag- j ' jiates at the present writing, and un H j' 'Jess tho German allies are dissolved II I land peace arrives in advance of the ! Ml t meeting, which is doubtful, the pro- j I j If fgrammo will be followed to tho letter. ' j Though neither big league will j I vj make definite plans to operate next i H j i fj'ear unless peace comes before the j jj iflrst of January, there is little doubt I H ?lhat some plans will be laid for start-1 Hi 'J, -jng the game anew. What these plans HI j will be can only be guessed at, and ' Hi f -tiiere are some club owners who feel Hj' 4hat it would be useless to attempt to j H'. ;put baseball back oil the map next H' j ts'eason should the signing of peace H' ' .terms come any later than the first of j ' i .-March. Hi j V It Is pointed out that the players of Hr the various teams will be scattered 1 Jfar and wide long before the first day H' j i 'of January arrives. Some of the ball Hi ; j .parks will have been adapted for other Hi i" .uses than baseball and the problems, H t i imany of them unguessed now, that will H'n . fcorae when the time arrives for a H' J -readjustment of the game, would bo H jj obstacles that could not be surmounted H 3 3n anything like a hurry. The magnates H. 'feel that when the time comes to bring H , S b'aseball back they will do well to HL! 5 !mako haste slowly in rebuilding and H v ' ;r.eopening the pastime. H 1 ' Baseball has certainly suffered a H ij ; lerrific blow, and iLwill naturally take H j he game a long lime to recover. The H 1 1 baseball business is a big and com- H I plicated business, with much money H i 'invested, heavy losses to be recouped i and changes in both the business and I .political ends of the game to bo con- f k idcrcd. H ' i Generally speaking, the national ' ' Uastimo is in a bad way, but it will H; live on and is bound to thrive once Hi jj 'again. The conservative baseball men H'..: tire confident that the game will come H jack better than over after much- H' ' ' needed changes aro made. Lm'' i ; The magnates are not expected to H, go on record as favoring any set plan H r , for bringing tho game back. They H 'dp not want to tie their own hands H in such a manner, and "because of this H there will probably be little food for mmm' j ' Iho fans forthcoming from the Decern - 14 t ber meeting of the National league j here. What may como out of tho ' ' American league meeting Is uncertain j also. I I'Thc magnates probably have a lifo- sized, hunch that tho less safd about il ( , b'aseball for a while the better off fhe gamo will be. Tho big rumpus up !

Ty is. now Captain Tyrus 'Cobb, having T"Tfrn rnmmlKsInrmrl In tho Phnmlnol Ij tj Warfare Service. He will receive his . I military training at the central of- r flcors' school. j ilt is understood that Captain Cobb 5 I 4 wfas commissioned with a view to be- ( .' ing given a command in a gas and 'I ,1 . flame regiment.

Campi was a real fighter and a j most likable chap. In fact he was un- ; doubtedly one of the most popular j boys ever developed in California, and j it "is fitting that his gTave bo marked 1 by those who flocked to see him fight when he ranked as one of tho coun try's leading bantamweights. 1 ; JokinyEvers Calls for i Football Togs for Boys Over There NEW YORK. Oct. 12. "Big Bill" Edwards recently received from Johrr ny Evers, now in France, the follow ing cable: "Need 500 football uniforms." Edwards is hustling to make good. He has appointed a large football committee to co-operate with him throughout the country, and has wrlt- ten letters to the managers of the different college football teams urg ing them to co-ojiqrate in this most Important collection of "material. Do nations can bo sent by express, pre- paid, to W. H. Edwards at the Cus tom House. New York City. If this sort of an appeal .strikes the I 'hearts of different' men throughout the country who have no football uni forms to give, checks will be appre ciated. In a letter addressed to many of the old-time football stars who form a committee, Edwards has included the following statement: ''Dhere is much of the football spirit In this var. You men know what team work' in football means. The men 'over there' aro finding that the football spirit they learned at college is helping them very much in this war. If wo here at home can help our boys 'over there' by contributing jerseys, sweaters, belts, football trousers and shoes we will be doing our bit" & j Some of the men put on tho com mittee are Walter Camp.

PATSY KLINE MADE GOOD AS THIRD MAN IN RING NEWARK, Oct 12 Patsy Kline, tho former Newark featherweight, who of ficated as referee In the Leonard -Lewis contest, acquitted himself very well on that occasion and ranks as perhaps the boat of tho referees oper ating under the direction of the State Athletic Commission of New Jersey. Under tho law permitting boxing bouts In that state the commission assigns the referee for every show, and in fu ture Kline probably will be named as the third man In the ring in a majori ty of the important contests staged. ; Another former boxer who is classed as a most competent ring of ficial is Jim Savage, the former Or ange heavyweight Tho remainder of the stiff Is composed of men of just ordinary ability and no great amount of Judgment. 00 Enlist in Iho unlimited army of Uncle Sam'a financial supporters, 00 Read the Classified Ada.

President Wilson who came to New York to take part in the celebration here of Columbus-Liberty day tomorrow played an Important part tonight In an Improm ptu Liberty loan rally at the theater where ho witnessed a popular musical comady. At the end of the performance an appeal was made for subscriptions and no one in the house seemed more in terested 'in the response than did Mr. Wilson. After more than $125,000 had been pledged B. Bertram Piko of Pike, N. H., announced that ho would buy $100,000 worth of bonds for cash if 100 other persons would buy 1000 worth each, with the understanding that the bonds were to be autographed by the president, Mr. Wilson readily assented to the proposal and the sale began with a rush. Actresses and chorus girls volunteered tp take the bonds to the president's box and for nearly an hour he was kept busy autographing thera. Mr. Wilson himself subscribed for $2000 worth but not for cash. James W. Gerard, former ambassador to Ger many took $15,000 worth and then George Conroy of Pueblo, Colo., a youthful marine who lost part of his right hand at Chateau Thierry an nounced that he would pay cash for three $50 bonds. This offer was greet ed with tremondous applause and the president Invited the marine to his box and congratulated him besides autographing the bonds. Eoth Mr. and Mrs. Wilson shook hangs with Conroy. The total sales for cash aggregated more than $750,000, President Wilson was given a voci ferous welcome, when he was recog nized upon his arrival and again at the end of the first act. Ho bowed his ac knowledgements but merely smiled at the calls for a speech. Ropqrts from London that Austria Hungary and Turkey wero willing to accept tho president's p"caco program were communicated to Mr. Wilson by the Associated Press through Secre tary Tumulty but no commont was made. oo FRENCH CAVALRY PURSUES GERMANS WITH THE FRENCH ARMY IN CHAMPAGNE, Oct. 11.

The advance on the eastern part of the battle front was much accelerated the aSBMa ggaaiiii .i itt French and American troops at some points gaining about seven miles. The Americans, notwithstanding a heavy bombardment of the region with mus tard gas shells took Machault. General Gouraud's troops advanced to the river Retourne over most of its length and took Savigny-sur-AJsno, only two and a half miles south of Vouzieres, which is in flames. Guise and all of the villages south of Laon are in flames. oo Camkai Victory . Growing Daily In Magnitude PARIS, Oct. 11. XHavas.)
