BATTLE IN NORTH FRANCE
AGAIN BECOMING ACTIVE
IN THE VICINITY OF YPRES
Paris, Dec. 2, 2.55 P. M.—The
French War Office gave out an officinl
announcement in Paris this afternoou
"In the region to the south of Ypres
and Saint Kloy an attack of the enemy
against an entrenchment taken by our
troops during the day was repulsed by
us. Our artillery inflicted damage on
a group of three batteries of heavy ar
tillery of the enemy.
"At Vermelles, the chateau and the
park surrounding it, two houses in the
village and some trenches were occu
pied by our troops. There has been a
spirited artillery exchange in the vicin
ity of Fay, to the southwest of Pe
ronne. In the region between Ven
drose-Craonne there has been bombard
ment, to which the French artillery re
plied with success, accomplishing the
destruction of a battery.
''ln the Argonne a German attack
against. Fontaine Madame was repulsed,
anil we made some progress in the occu
pation of a trench in the forest of Court
and Chaussees and a minor fortified po
sition near St. Hubert.

there is nothing to report."
LATE WAR" NEWS SUMMARY
Continued From Flriit Pane,
j check the forward movement of Aus
tria's invading forces. The Servians
S have been forced to fall back behind
. strong natural positions.
Official reports concerning the cam
| paign in Russian Poland which were
available in to-day's dispatches still
I failed to make clear the confused sit-
I nation in the east, where for days a
| great Russian victory has been claimed
!in unofficial advices from Petrograd
j and London.
Earl Kitchener's statement in the
' Houso of Commons that the Germans
\ had suffered the greatest disaster in
their history remained opon to challenge
by Berlin. It is said that the powerful
Teuton armies, driven on the desperate
efforts by the peril of their position,
have cut their way through solid lines
of enveloping Russians. What it has
cost has not yet been told, but it is in
dicated that the Germans, in extricat
ing themselves, have inflicted enormous
losses on the enemy and have in turn
paid a terrible price.
If it be true that the Germans have
freed themselves from the danger of
the Bussian defeat in Poland the sit
uation to the north and south is still
j pictured as menacing for them. The
; importance of the campaign to the
i campaign to the north is Indicated by
the fact that Emperor William has gone
: into East Prussia to direct personally
! the movements against the invading
Russians. Nowhere else is German ter
\ ritory threatened by an invading army,
except in a small part of Alsace which
has been held by the French since the
early days of the war. To the south in
Galacia, also the Russians are reported
: to be pressing forward victoriously, sur
| rounding Cracow on the three sides.
1 The fall of this stronghold might bring
' to Germany the danger of invasion from
| this quarter.
In the west reports of furious fight
ing along the Yser canal in Belgium
which have been current for the last
j two days still lack confirmation. So far
as official advices show, the situation
all along the battle line of 280 miles
is quiet, and whether the Germans have
decided to make another great effort to
| break through in the northwest is not
j yet disclosed.

"Hotels and restaurants are expect

society this winter," said one hotel
man, who is as well up on the restaur

"It. is believed that fashionable people

"As a matter of fact, the day of the
lavish spender is gone, so far as New
York is concerned. We shall never see
again the era that ended nine or ten
years ago. Those were the days when
men from Chicago or Pittsburgh vied
with each other in the extravagance
of their entertainments. It was noth

Nowadays the average is about $1.50.
