In many clrclea here today, tha vic tory was hailed as, perhaps, the roost Important military stroke achieved by tha allies since the battle of the Marne. Aotual penetration of the Hlnden burg line, which Germany has boasted was completely Impregnable and which her militarists have led the peo ple to believe would forever bar the allied progress, MAY BE EXPECTED TO HAVE A POWERFUL EFFECT ON GERMAN MORALE IN THE FIELD AND AT HOME. Field Marshal Haig has not com pletely and definitely located the driv Over Confident Germans Had Expected a Rattling Artillery Move to Come First By WTLUAM PHILLIP SIMMS. With the British Armies In the Field, Nov. II.—The strangest battle In the world's history was that by which the British today smashed the Hlndenburg Una. There has been no other battle like It In the annals of warfare. ONLY THE WOODEN HORSE OF TROY OFFERS A COMPARISON WITH HAIG'S BLOW IN TACTICAL ORIGI NALITY.

They blazed the trail, their gigantically ponderous paths offering fre« entrance to the In fantry Immediately behind. They crashed over wire entanglements, over artfully oonoealed Chevaux de Frise, over trenches themselves end the walking Tommies followed. Prisoners pouring back of the lines today were still dazed with the sur prise of the attack. THEY WERE UTTERLY FLAB BERGASTED. Not an officer nor man had the slightest Idea the British could possibly strike on their quiet aeotor at a time WHEN IT WAS SUPPOSED EVERY OUNCE OF BRITAIN'S STRENGTH WAS CONCENTRATED IN FLANDERS.

'To my mind, the most satisfactory channel of communication available Is provided by the German Soclalsts By J. W. T. MASON. New York, Nor. 21.—General Haig's great victory against the Hlndenburg line haB been won by the adoption of revolutionary tactics that may change the whole course of the war. Surprise has been restored to strategy. The British advance has been made with tanks serving Instead of artil lery to break the German barbed de fenses. No preliminary bombardment of the enemy's position waa under taken sufficiently far In advance of the attack to give the enemy time to prepare his resisting measures.

The Hlndenburg .line starts at Dro court just northwest of Douai and runs In a fairly straight line down through Vltry-en-Artols, Vllllers, Cagnicourt, to Queant and Pronvllle, thence on the Boursles, Havrtncourt, Gouzeaucourt, Epehy and SL Quelntln.

The lower section Is the "Siegfried line' 1 both together form the general scheme of the Hlndenburg front.* The total length Is about 40 miles. unprecedented barrages to do the trick. So they dozed and slept and took life easy In the German lines. There was practically no artillery fire felt from the British side—"the Englischer sweln" were too busy with their con centrated guns at Passchendaele, and besides they didn't have enough guns to concentrate, so why worry? That must have been the German psychol ogy. No more utterly demoralized human beings In the world were seen than these name sleekly confident Boches us they crawled from their dugouts, sleep barely out of their eyes, at the sound of crunching, lumbering Jugger nauts above them—to find British sol diers swarming everywhere. They raised their arms In shrilling cries of "knmerad," "kamerad," and fled hith er and thither, dazed and terror stricken. Guns that never fired a shot in this battle were seized by the Tom mies or else crushed Into the yielding earth by the steely weight of the tanks. Cement emplacements, steel bound roofs of dugouts, crunched In burying Germans like ants In hills trodden un der foot. ALL OLD RULE8 DISCARDED. All of tho rules of preparation for war and of the actual battle strategy Itself were thrown aside In the British coup. Some time Monday night a large number of BrlttBh tAnks took their berth behind the lines. The Germans didn't hear them; It was too dark for them to be seen. In the early morning Tuesday these monsters crawled forth In the hazy light between darkness and daylight. A smoke barrage concealed their camouflaged sides. The Germans did not know they were In action until they rumbled and wheezed over their heads. The Hlndenburg line—the Impreg nable, the never-yielding, the last word In defenses—was taken, therefore, without a single preparatory gunshot. HOW COMPLETE WAS THE SUR PRISE OF THE -GERMANS WAS EVIDENCED IN THE FACT THAT AT ONE POINT A GERMAN DI VISION WAS IN PROCESS OF RE LIEVING ANOTHER AT THE VERY MOMENT OF THE ATTACK. 1 British tanks cleared the path for the infantry. NEVER BEFORE IN TRENCH FIGHTING. Never before since the adoption of the trench system of fighting, have tactics of this kind been employed. Ar tillery always hag been the advance «gent of the Infantry. Sometimes the preliminary booming has continued for more than a week and always for sev eral days. Thus the enemy has been given ample warning of the direction from which an attack was Impending. But Haig apparently did not loosen hla artillery days in advance of the L — a . « ... . treason why, aide by side with such A DEMOCRATIC GERMANY WE SHOULD DO ALL IN OUR POWER TO STRENGTHEN THE DEMO CRATIC ELEMENTS IN GERMANT.

NO MILITARY LET-UP. "Bo long as military effort la neces sary there must be no slackening on the part of the allies, but that la effort, we should not attempt, by wise and sensible uee of the political weapon, to hasten the settlement of the war by a peace which shall be Just, honorable and democratic." Waits for American Fighters England's Hope Based on Yankee Man Power and Many Millipn Tons of United States Shipping. London, Nov. 21.—England looks anxiously for the day when America's "first million men" shall be In France and when America's first «,000,000 tons of shipping shall sail the seas bringing more men, more munitions, more supplies, In the common cause against autocracy. The hope ot an early realization of these plans, as expressed by Premier Lloyd George In his speech opening the Brltlsh-American war conference, was re-echoed throughout England today. It served again to emphasize the Brltfsh public's realization of the vast Impetus which America will give to the allied war machine and, to the !

"Like Britain," the premier said, "the United States is a pacific power and she, therefore, has had to build up a war organization fçpm the start. In doing so she can learn from many mistakes which Britain made. Two of the most urgent matters today are man power at the fronts and ship ping. DISCOURAGEMENTS.

RUSSIA ANeTiTALY SITUATIONS DEMAND QUICK ACTION BY U. S.

AU editorial comments held the prime minister's forceful address had aptly summed up the part America must henceworth play in the concert of nations leagued against Germany.

The emphasis In tho British official report is placed on the fact that the enemy was completely surprised. No such surprise lias ever over taken the Germans on the western front since the battle of the Marne. They have always known beforehand when any major attack was preparing. NOW THE BIG SURPRISE PARTY Today, however, it has been demon- 1 strated that a surprise attack can b, undertaken along; a huge front with great success. The German air ser vice even can bo fooled. If the Ger mans are unable to discover the direc tion of attacks In advance, their fight ing efficiency must suffer an immense decline. Tho allied superiority. In man power and munitions will then play their real part in the war, for the Germans haven't enough men to concentrate ev erywhere at once.

Defense counsel, Henry Uter hart said the prospect of seeing her child. Jack, after court adjourned to night, had made a marked change In Mrs. De Saulles. The sister, Amalio, looked even sadder and more weary than Mrs. De Saulles until the ques tlonlng of prospective Jurors got under way again.

Admitting this Utterhart will demand that the prosecution prove—"beyond a reason able doubt"—that the beautiful Chilean was perfectly sane when she did the killing. Every Juror In the box has answered "yes" to the following questions: "If, when you retire to the Jury room, you have a reasonable doubt as to the sanity of this defendant on the night of Aug. 3, will you acquit?" Thus Uttferhart believes he has only to create a reasonable doubt of Mrs. de Suulles' Insanity In order to ac quit her. WILL SEE CHILD TONIGHT.

BRITISH MENACE MAIN COMMUNICATING LINE By ED L. KEEN. London, Nov. 21.—Field Marshall Haig has broken the Hlndenburg line. At various points on a front over at least a score of miles, the British commander In chief today reported his troops had smashed their way for a distar '8 of between four and five miles through the first defenses of the vaunted Hlndenburg defenses. UTTERLY DEMORALIZED.

OVER FORTY MILES. Last night's report from Field Mar shal Haig specified operations extend ing in all from the river Scarpo to St. yuentin—a front of nearly 40 miles. Today's report, however, does not specify the exact frontage on which the line was broken, merely announc ing lt was "wide." The British may have started their drive at scores of points along the var ious parts of the 40-mlle line nnd later concentrated at certain strategic sec tions. This would seem to be borno out by the great advances made di rectly opposite Cambrai. The concentration apparently cen tered there, where the largest gains were reported.
