Presi dent Wilson today apepaled to tho country to "make an end of this dis graceful evil." The text of the President procla mation follows: "My fellow countrymen,.

(Received 2 o'clock) The Franco-Americans in turning Fere forest overcame the last great'physical obstacle before Fere-en-Tardenois, and the catpure of that all-important German concentration center is believed a matter of hours. The fall of the city will endanger the German position within the Soissons-Rheims salient more than any other single operation that appears realizable within the com ing few days. Having turned the great forest the allies now have prac tically a clean sweep from the south and are enabled to flank the city by advancing down the Ourcq valley from the southeast. - Having captured Oulchy-Ie-Chateau they can attack Fere-cn-Tardenois from the west. The allies may thus press in upon the city from three sides-over more than a 15 mile front. Latest reports show them less than four BRITISH AIR SC0REi,nilesf,om - FOREST COMPLETELY TAKEN.
