All the officers of last .year of im

German Lines Give Way
With their lines broken in many places from the North 6ea to
Verdun the Germans are beginning to retreat at many points
along the battle line. Outflanked and imperiled by the advance
of the Anglo-Belgian armies east of Ypres, the enemy now is rap
idly retiring from the La Basse sector. It is reported that Mciiln
and Roulers are burning, that the Belgians are within two miles
of Turcoing and that Lille is being emptied of its civilian popu
lation. •
Around St. Quentin the fighting still continues in mostly rear
guard engagements.
Retreat Before Bertholet'B Army
Near Rheims, the Germans are retreating before General
Bertholet's army. In Champagne, the enemy slowly is giving
ground as General Gouraud moves northward; f
In the Belgian sector the enemy's situation apparently is most
critical. Their retirement from La Bassee apparently necessitates
abandonment of the district of Lens, to which the Germans have
desperately clung.
Move Heavy Guns Off Coast
The Germans are reported to be moving their heavy guns
back from the western Flanders coast, and rumors from Holland
says the whole ooast may be evacuated.
British, American and French forces apparently have broken
the Hindenburg line between Le Catelet and St. Quentin. They
are across the Somme rivers which was the strongest line of de
fense in this sector.
North of Rheims the French have carried the hill positions
preparatory to pushing forward across the lowlands east of the
Aisne canal.
Hard Fighting in Two Sectors
In the Champagne and the Argonne the French and Americans
are fighting hard and progress seems to be very slow. The drive
north of Rheims is closely related to that near Verdun.
With Damascus lost to the British, Turkey again is reported
to have unofficially approached the Allies with proposals for an

In Austria the demand for peace is assuming a more definite

May Resort to Quarantine
City health department ottlciuls
are awaiting notification from the
State Department of Health which
will require all physicians in Harris
burg to report at once to the bu
reau all cases of Spanish influenza,
or grip. Dr. J. M. J. Raunick, city
health officer, said that a number
of doctors are already making re
ports of all their cases and urges
other physicians not doing so to
communicate with the bureau at
Dr. Raunick is of the belief that
unless tho epidemic is soon checked
drastic quarantine measures may be
necessary such as are now In force
in other cities where schools, theat
ers, churches and all other public
meeting places are closed. There is
no indication yet that such a step is
necessary in Harrisburg he said, but
if reports from physicians show an
alarming spread of the disease which
has already caused many deaths
when it developed into pneumonia,
then health officials declared they
will issue the quarantine order.
Warning Is Issued
• Dr. Raunick has issued a warning
to everyone In the city to avoid large
crowds and has requested that any
p(*on who sneezdlj or coughs while
in public or at home should use prop
er care in preventing a spread of in
fluenza germs. "Use handkerchief, or
better than that, paper napkins if
at home, then burn them," is Dr.
Raunick's advice.
"The best preventative is the use of
o good nose and throat antiseptic to
kill the germs. Plenty of sunlight,
fresh air, keep windows open at
night and plenty of cover on beds,
use proper care in rapid changes of
temperature from warm buildings to
the open air, do not get into large
crowds, and do not get too close to
members of the family who may be
sneezing or coughing—all of these
precautions will prove a big aid in
stopping a spread of the disease.
"Physicians should report cases
they arc treating at once. It is high
ly important that the city health
authorities keep a close watch on the
number of cases developing so that
they can determine with what degree
of rapidity the influenza, or grip,
is spreading. Unless everyone co
operates in this manner there will be
difficulty in checking the contagion
and drastic measures may result.
"The deaths from pneumonia
which are being reported seem to in
dicate that in a number of cases
persons first become victims of in
fluenza, and that other minor afflic
tions follow rapidly developing into a
serious condition often of such a
nature that it can not be checked in
time and results fatally."
While there are no complete re
ports at the health office Dr. Raunick
said that from communications from
physicians there is no doubt that the
affliction is still spreading.
