Dixmude and Ypres, Claiming
London, Nov. 12 —A Critical
stage in the battle in West Fland
ers has been reached and the next
few days, if not hours, should pro
duce something more decisive than
has yet occurred.
The Germans have continued to
attack with all the forces at their
command and the British and the
French, who hold the line between
Dixmude and Ypres, but with the
exception of the capture of Dix
mude, which occurred Tuesday,
and some little progress around
Ypres, they have not been able to
make any material advance.
The French official report, is
sued this afternoon, says that all
the attacks have been repulsed.
The Germans are no longer utiliz
ing green troops in this region,
but have brought up the pick of
their army, including some Prus
sian guards, who attempted an of
fensive movement against the Brit
ish, but without success.
Both sides express satisfaction

the first time a great 'cello play

Mr. Search is ably assisted by
Robert Raymond Lippitt, an emi

good music. The concert is one

Berlin says that the attacks of the
allies have been repulsed and that
their own attack is making head

it is felt that so long as t! e allies
can hold the line of the canal from

. Prepare Winter Quarters.
In France from the northwest
to the southeast there have been
engagements of lesser importance,
in which, according to the French
report, General Joffre's unities
have succeeded in gaining ground
and strengthening their positions.
The Germans continue to destroy
bridges and railways in Belgium,
but with what object remains a se
cret. It is thought, however, that
they are making preparations to
winter in that country apd they
are taking every step to prevent
their plans from becoming known
to their enemies.
