GERMANS RUSH FRESH
ARMY TO FACE ALLIES
BERLIN", by way of Amsterdam, Sept.
A new German urmy has been sent
This important news was otllcially
announced here today. No Informa
tiun was given out as to the progress
of tho campuign against the allies, the
bare ollielal announcement stating only
that another army had been dls.
It is understood that this army Is
under command of General Von "Uoehn,
and that' It contains either threu or
four army corps (120,000 or 160,000 men).
Part of General Von lioehn's forces
have already reached Belgium and nre
in the vicinity of Renaix.
(This indlcutes that tho new German
army will bo used to strengthen the
German right wing and to prevent the
lines of communication being cut.)
There is some anxiety here over tho
lack of oftlclal announcements as to the
progress of the campaign against the
Franco-British armies, the last state
ment from the General Staff merely
stating that the Germans had fallen
back to strong positions where they
could withstand an attack.

Germans drove southward with tremen
dous force, attempting to throw a wedge
between Paris nnd tho allied uiiuy, but

Sir John pointed out that tho Germans
fully expected to carry out this envelop
ing movement to a successful conclusion
and enter Paris. Letters found on tho
bodies of German soldiers and officers
proe th.s, said the tliltlsh general. By
their ability to move forward, day after
day, on the big swing through northeast

look upon victory as being within their
grasp, when thu tide suddenly turned.
"It will be remembered," tajs tno re

British troops on September 6th was

There had been practlcaly no changes

there was an alteration In the direction
