THE YALE EXPOSITOR, THURSDAY. AUGUST 1 5, 1918.
BRITISH AND FRENCH CUT 11 MILES
AHEAD IN NEW OFFENSIVE BY FOCH
British Armored Cars and Tanks Lead the Advance of Allied
Troops Over Wide Front Thousands
POWERFUL CAVALRY FORCES ARE III ACTION
The Allied Losses Thus Far Have Been Slight and the Ger
mans Are Slow and Weak in Counterattacking.
London The Franco-British advance
cn the battlefront south of the Somme
has reached a maximum depth of 11
miles, according to news received here
ahortly after noon Friday.
Advices from the battlefront south
of the Somme say British armored
cars and tanks, in advance of the in
fantry, have reached within a mile of
the Chaulnes railway junction.
The cavalry, tanks and armored
cars, it is indicated, have gone ahead
to the line running from Framerville to
The total of prisoners captured is
reported to have reached 10,000.
London Fourteen thousand pris
oners and guns too numerous to
mention have been taken in the
British drive on the front south of
the Somme, says Friday's war of
fice report. The cavalry is still pur
suing the enemy.
Paris The battle on the front south
of the Somme was resumed early Fri
day morning and the Franco-British
forces made favorable progress from
the start, reaching various selected ob
jectives. Powerful cavalry forces are in ac
tion. The reports received up to 11:30
o'clock show the attack developing
victoriously on a great scale.
Latest reports received by the
llavas agency from the battlefront are
that the fighting continues fiercely
along the entire Anglo-French attack
The war office report of Friday
morning is guarded, merely saying that
the situation on the battlefront south
of the Somme is unchanged. (This
report evidently covers the lull dur
ing the night and probably was issued
before the battle was resumed Friday
French Advance Four Miles.
On the French Front in France
French troops on a front of six miles
northwest of Montdidier have ad
vanced to a depth of four miles and
captured nearly 3,000 prisoners.
Important material--also was cap
tured. The advance was carried out
with extremely light losses.
The French front runs from the
Avre north to a point just south of
the Amiens-Roys road where it joins
up with the British.
The attention of the Germans was
fixed on the Vesle attack when the
new offensive was opened. There was
no reply to the French artillery pre
paration, which lasted 45 minutes.
German soldiers were captured
while harvesting grain in the fields, so
complete was the surprise. Moreuil
and Moriset were carried by assault.
The difficulties of crossing the Avre
were overcome' rapidly, the French
using hastily constructed foot bridges.
After taking Braches, the French cap
tured La Nelville and the series of
hills dominating the plain beyond.
Pressing the advance already gained
In Picardy, the British and French
troops in smashing attacks are . forc
ing the Germans back toward the Im
portant Pefonne-Roye road. The ad
vance Thursday was probably the
greatest in territorial extent by the Al
lies in one day since 1S16.
Amiens, as a result of the fighting
up to the present, has been almost en
tirely relieved of the German menace
and even the German artillery will
have difficulty in reaching it. The im
portant railway running north from
Taris through Amiens and parelleling
the Allied battle front can now be
used again after being under the fire
of German guns four months.
The Allied losses thus far have been
plight and the Germans have been slow
and weak in counter-attacking. The
greatest enemy defensive assetma
chine gun nets appears to have been
very well squelched by the British
tanks which swarmed through the
German lines. They did their work
with ruthless thoroughness.
Following short but intensive artil
lery preparation and aided by misty
weather, the Allied attack took the
Germans completely by surprise and
they fled almost everywhere pell-mell
before the tanks, motor machine gun
batteries, cavalry and Infantry sent
againBt them. All the objectives set
for the Australians, Canadians, Eng
lishmen and Frenchmen were attained
In remarkably quick time.
In smashing through the German
first lines on the 20-mlle front from
Morlancourt to Hargicourt, or roughly,
from Albert to Montdidier, the Allies
advanced as far as seven and one
half miles in tnecenter. The average
advance was probably more than four
miles. Most determined opposition
has been encountered on the extrem
ities of the fighting front. Morlan
court Is still in German hands, al
though a desperate conflict was staged
Cavalry was brought in late Thurs
day and succeeded in capturing
eral villages and in rounding up scores
of prisoners. Field Marshal Haig has
not definitely reported on the cap
tures of guns and prisoners, but an
nouncement has been made officially
In London that early Thursday 7,000
Germans and 100 guns had been taken
by the British and French. Later un
official reports bring the total of pris
oners to more than 10,000, the French
alone taking 3,000.
Penetration of the enemy positions
has been greatest south of the Somme
to Plessiers. This is directly east of
Amiens and Framerville. The farth
est east reached by the British up to
late Thursday is seven miles from the
Peronne-Roye road. North of the
Somme the British have had to fight
hard for their gains and the same has
been true of the French advance across
the Avre. Once across the Avre, how
ever, the French moved forward rap
idly. The Peronne-Roye road with its
parallel line of railroad. It is the main
communication line. With this in Al
lied hands, or even under short artil
lery range, the German positions north
of Arras and south and east almost to
Rheims would be in great danger.
Montdidier, the pillar of the German
positions where the battlefront swings
toward the east, is invested on three
Should Montdidier fall or the Pe
ronne-Roye road be cut the German sit
uation between Arras and Rheims
would be most difficult, military ob
servers believe. The first result prob
ably would be a withdrawal from Mont
didier to Rheims to the line of the
Oise and the Alsne or perhaps to part
of the old Hindenburg line.
The terrain before the Allies is roll
ing and rather difficult of defense ex
cept north of the Somme. Important
results already have been achieved
should the Peronne-Roye road not be
reached at once. Marshal Foch has
shown he retains the initiative and
the forces to take the offensive. Also
Amiens and the northern roads are no
longer under easy artillery range, The

BUMPER CROPS THROUGHOUT U.S.
Practically Every Crop Is Growing On
a Larger Scale Than Heretofore.
Washington Bumper crops of al
most every foodstuff grown on the
farm were indicated again Thursday
in the department of agriculture's
monthly crop report despite a falling
off of prospective production in prac

verse conditions, principally hot and
In round figures the loss to farmers
of this prospective production is rough

more than $450,000,000 in principal
grain and food crops and $250,000,000
Practically every crop is growing on
larger acreage this year than that
planted last year, indicating that the
farmers have been making strenuous
efforts to meet the heavy needs of
the Allies and increasing demands at
Corn, the country's greatest crop,
was the heaviest sufferer from the dry
and hot weather of July, losing 171,
000,000 bushels in prospective produc
tion since the first production forecast
was made from June conditions. The
monetary loss to corn growers is
around $275,000,000. From almost every
part of the country came reports that
corn this year is from two to three
weeks ahead of its average condition,
indicating that practically all of the
crop will mature before the dates of
first frost. That condition should as

Drought and heat made inroads on
potatoes, causing a loss of 15,000.000 in
the prospective crop and sweet pota

WHAT WOMEN CAN
DOTO Will THE WAR
Conserve Food and Buy Liberty
Bonds Two Ways They
WOMEN OF AMERICA, WAKEUP!
Pour All- Your Savings Into Uncle
Sam's Lap Keep on Saving and
Pouring Until the World
By INEZ HAYNES IRWIN.
What can the women of America
flo to help Kin this war? Two things
are certain; one that they can do a
great deal and another that, unless
the war lasts tea years louger, they
can never do so much us the French,
English and Italian women have done,
they can never suffer so much as the
French, English and Italian women
save . suffered.
To me, returning to America after
two years in the war countries, the un
touched gayety of the American people
came as a terrific shock. I bad left a
world as black and silent as night; a
world In which I had seen no dancing,
a world in which I had heard no spon
taneous laughter or except In the case
f military bonds no music. At first
the atmosphere of America was almost
unbearable. I was obsessed with the
desire to get back to the allied coun
tries, to suffer with them, rather than
enjoy the comparative comfort of a
comparatively unaroused Anieihru.
The luxury everywhere appalled me.
Thos hundreds of motors gliding
through our streets for instance!
Private motors have long ago disap
peared from allied Europe. The beau
tiful fabrics, the furs und laces, the
gorgeous sport clothes and the dazzling
evening dresses which still distinguish
the women of America.
Ban on Evening Clothes.
The first time I was invited to a
dinner party 'on my return, I wore a
long-sleeved high-necked gruy-and-black
gown and fouud myself a wren
among birds of paradise. No woman
of France would think of wearing eve
ning clothes. Indeed, both men and
women are prohibited by law from ap
pearing in evening- clothes at the thea
ter. On the few social occasions In
which they take part, French women
are dressed in black gowns with a lit
tle lace at the neck and sleeves. ' Eng
lish woraeu still wear evening clothes.
When their men return on their rare
leave from the front, they cover their
aching hearts with as much gayety as
possible in order to send them back to
the filth and the vermin and the rats
and the damp and the cold and the
wounds and the constant sight of death
psychologically refreshed. But most of
the evening dresses that the English
women are now wearing date back to
the beginning of the war. And strang
est of all, perhaps, for a country at
war, those lustrous streets with their
rows of electric lights "and their vivid,
flashing, changing, iridescent electric
signs. In Paris, you plunge Into a
deep twilight when you leave your res
taurant, and in London you grope your
way home through a dangerous Sty
gian gloom. - Then the careless spend
ing In American hotels and restau
rants. In Paris those places close at
half-past nine. And foodl Food con
ditions have never been so bad in
France as In the other allied conn
tries, for France has always fed her
self and is, moreover, the world's best
cook. But In Italy and England, meat
is a rare luxury to be obtained only
once in a great while ; butter . and
sugar are long-forgotten dreams. ...
See Their Homes Destroyed.
And then in the case of France and
to some degree of Italy, the allied
women have seen vast stretches of
carefully cared-for ancient forest and
enormous sections of softly-beautiful
farming country turned into metal-rld-flen
dumps; they have seen dozens of
Imall cities and hundreds of little vil
lages transformed to ash heaps; they
have seen so much old sacred beauty
in the form of churches, cathedrals
and historic monuments reduced to
hills of rubble that the whole world
must seem a desert to them. They
have even had to endure the extra
affront of an exhibition In Berlin of
the art treasures looted from northern
The allied women have nursed the
wounded, the tubercular, the under
nourished; they have taught new
trades to the crippled and blind and
those who are Invalided for life. They
have taken care of thousands and
thousands of refugees from Belgium,
northern France and Siberia. They
have had to provide for the bringing
op of thousands of orphan children.
This has not come upon them gradual
ly, but all the time and in increasing
But, after all, these things are as
nothing to the death of the flower of
their male youth. England and France
and Itnly have lost so much In man
power that no member of our genera
tion looks for happiness egaln during
his ow n lifetime I They hope only
for one thing to Insure the freedom
of the next generation. "

English woman who was

But that is not all. In a manner of
spt aklng. the . women of Europe are
fighting the war Just as the men are.
They have not, except In the case of
the famous Battalion of .Death, died
In battle; and yet a half to three

marines. What can the women of America
do to equal all this service and all
For three years, the French and

death of our democracy. What can
we do to make up for that long, hesi

now. As Lloyd George said in parlia

the world democracy is assured. The
men of America are doing their part
doing it with suffering and death.

What Women Can Do.
It is the geographical misfortune of
us women of America that we cannot

the women of Europe have given.
They are near and we are far. They,

things we can do all the time and
