THE NEWS SCIMITAR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER ?. 191. GERMANY FACING mi mm nrrriT IVIILIIAlu UtrLMi OR CAPITUUTION (Continued From First rr.) France wnich rfrr""11' the survival of the older salient extending to SI. iJobaln. Here the German rcjrat hna become almost a flight, owing to the threat coming from the British, ldc. Yanks Break Through. Finally in the east, between the Aisne and the Meuse and astride the Meuse. our American troops have hrok en through the second lit"' of Ger man defense and nr.- advancing down the Mens on either hank, having at ready eliminated the Maubeuge-Mesl-eres-Meti lateral railway ami thus brought about complete isolation be tween the enemy's center and right and hla left. No one mil venture to prophesy that the German anny la now Immediately to Buffer something like the disaster whleh ha. in turn overtaken the Turk, the Bulgar an. I the Austrian upon the battlefield, the sort of dlaaater whleh has made Sedan forever memorable, in military history, hut the unmistak able fa t is that the existing condi tions permit one to say that it is not only Impossible, but hardly Improba ble. After four months of defeat the tier man has now to execute u long and 0ttflcu.lt retreat, with both hla flanks In peril and I is renter exposed and requiring to be extricated from tin ex ceedingly dangerous situation. ny lo cal collapse now will Inevitably bring general ruin. Any fallun on either flank will precipitate a eolossal rap ture of lierman troops and tin' sub stantial elimination of tin fighting forces of the German empire. It Is with this situation in their eyes that the German government and the Herman people will receive the armistice terms of nations fighting them. In a similar situation Austria delayed too long and had to make her submission after the destruction of her annv upon the battlefield. Hesi tation In Germany now may remove the last frail hairier which Intervenes between the allies and a complete mili tary d. . Lsion. Can Win Delay. By contrast, tr German generals i an extricate their armies from the present critical posture, then the) will he aide to draw them bark behind the ver solid obstacle which the Metise river constitutes from Meileres lo the Dutch frontier and extend tins position south ward behind the Thiers to the MeU- Thlnnvlllc system of defenses, In thla latter case they can well expect to hold their new front until the coming of spring, for the end of campaigning weather is certainly at hand and all advantage of position will be with the enemy If he gets off now. Ami In tills slate of facts we may expect that th" German will postpone his surrender for the balance of the noncampaiKtiieg season. He will use the respite allowed him by the season and the successful retirement of his troops to the Mouse line to endeavor tu modify the dreams of his enemies by aefng diplomatic rather than mili tary weapons Hut he will do this Willi the full recognition that if he fails then he must accept the allied terms before the spring campaign can Open or endure complete military de feat in the next campaign. We have the three possibilities: Im mediate military disaster now. with u necessarily prompt surrender, such aa Austria has made under similar con ditions; a successful escape from the 1 H la TW Ol S MI3S0URI pacific UAIDUifMi. a rnanxe ot tune taiic will lie 118, and this advance notice ol the , V i'ooms on mis ami coiuiecting r oiuei-s win oe m aiiaoie at s'. i lions and online. ecu 111 (in n I-.ST P,OIM ( Read Down) ftt :00a 10:18 a 11:06 p a:26 p 919 2:10 p Tcio p M -'Oj 201 MEMPHIS DMT, 12:01 p e:00p IDOOplev, Memphis Ar.
