! backward march and not halt it again until their old line at the
| Chemin des Dames is reached.
Chemin des Dames Outflanked
1 Through the continued French progress on the German right
' flank north of the Aisne, however, even the Chemin des Dames
line virtually outflanked and the retirement may not stop short
of the Ailette.
The campaign for Cambrai has halted as faf - as the push on
' the direct line for the city is concerned but the advances which
j the Anglo-French forces are making southward along the line
j are calculated to work notably toward the success of the main
drive. The Somme and the Canal du Nord water barriers have
been passed in this sector and the German stand back of the canal
in the north may be rendered futile as the enemy left flank on the
canal line at Havrincourt is menaced by the drive farther south.
i On the Flanders front the British pressure seems likely to drive
! the Germans farther than they apparently had intended going in
; their retirement. Field Marshal Haig's troops are pressing in
: upon Armentieres both from the north and south and their thrust
j seems likely soon to be considered as threatening Lille, the great
| manfacturing center of Northern France, southwest of
1 Armentieres.
i With the American Army in France, Sept. 6.—The Germans
i last night were destroying bridges and ilooding the country be
tween Chauny and La Fere, a good indication that they do not
expect to remain much longer in advance of their old line which
ran from La Fere to Barisis. During the day their retreat con
tinued in daylight east of the Ailette river and their columns
suffered very heavy losses from shell fire.
Between the Ailette and the Aisne French troops advanced
to a line from Margival to Quincy and Chivres, while to the
north they occupied Coucy-le-Margival to Quincy and Chivres,
while to the north they occupied Coucy-le-Chateau and Coucy
-le-Ville, approaching their old line of 1917 around the edge of
the hilly wood region of St. Gobain. There they will encounter
the formidable defense works the Germans prepared as part of
the old Hindenburg position and which perhaps have been further
strengthened since the beginning of their retreat.
With the American Army in France, Sept. 6.—Franco Amer
ican troops reached the south bank of the Aisne last night between
Conde and Vieil-Arcy, an eight mile front. American forces dur
ing the afternoon occupied the towns of Dhuizel and Barbonal
virtually without 'opposition.
From the Veslc northward over the plateau the Germans were burn
ing everything they could not move northward or which might be of use
to the French and Americans. Between the Marne and the Y esle the
Germans had left great stores of supplies and ammunition because of
their hasty withdrawal.
Bridges and Roads Destroyed
The Germans had endeavored to destroy small bridges. Engineers
quickly repaired the roads. Nothing of military value was found.
The plateaus for every few miles was dotted with frames of German
airdromes, from some of which the Americans say German raiders who
bombed Paris operated.
The canvas coverings for the hangars were taken by the Germans
when they retired and the wooden frames were so damaged by shells that
they virtually are worthless.
Again Cut Down Trees
Behind the advancing Americans in the desolate valley of the Vesle
between Bazoehes and Fismette the Germans burned the freight cars
along the railroad and twisted skeletons ot the cars are standing on the
tracks The trees along the roadway between Bazoehes and Fismette
had been cut down by German s*ws and German shells. The stone houses
in Fismette have shellholes in their sides and roofs and some were
smashed by German bombers who endeavored to drive out the Americans.
Mother of Hero Who Died
For His Countrymen Serves
With the Flag 'Over There'
Paris (By Mail) Down In one
of the French port towns is a Y. M.
C. A. hut entirely devoted to serv
ing the navy. Behind the counter
of the canteen is a small, gray-hair
ed woman who used to have a boy
in the navy.
His ship was torpedoed last spring.
It sank so quickly that there was
time only to cut away two or three
rafts. The officers'and crew went
into the water together. It was
every man for himself. But there
was not room on those rafts for
This woman's son. who was an
officer, swam from one raft to an
•other, making sure that every pos
sible man was saved. Then, be
cause his raft was sagging with the
overweight, he dropped quietly over
the side and let himself go down.
The navy knows fhat story. It
knows that this mother is trying to
take up her son's job where he left
off—taking care of the blue-jackets.
You ought to see the way those boys
look at her and speak to her.

Find Germany Army
in Rapid Decline
With the American Troops in
France, Sept. 6.—Every evidence
obtainable by the Americans as they
press upon the German armies points
to the gradual, continuous, and ever
more-rapjd weakening morale of the
troops and the lowering of their ef
fectiveness to a serious point.. The
American military authorities draw
this conclusion from the action of
the German command in shortening
the line by voluntary withdrawals,
its enforcement of longer tours of
duty in the front trenches upon the
troops, the combing of the service for
infantrymen, the disbanding of storm
battalions to bolster up inferior divi
sions, and even the use of Austrian
troops on the western front.

Where Germans May Try To
Stand Behind Hindenburg Line
The leading article in THE LITERARY DIGEST this week—September T.th—
is accompanied by a helpful Map which shows the present Hindenburg line, and also
clearly indicates the line behind it at the River Meuse, which, in the opinion of ex
perts, will be where the Germans will make their new stand. It also shows the
territory the American troops are holding in Alsace, Lorraine, and along the Vesle,
. including cities, rivers, etc.

Western Front.

The reason Vinol proved such a
