The allied infantry moved forward near' the Ypres-Staden railway and on outskirts .of..Houtb.ols.t extreme northern edge of the active front in Flanders. The French advance was along a width of about of a mile. The British at- tack probably along a somewhat wider extending towards Poel- capelle and possibly taking in the area of that which has been the scene of some desperate fighting with- n the last few the German re- actions being extremely persistent here. Both groups of troops scored early successes. Paris an- nounced that all their objectives were attained by the French while Marshal Haig reported satisfac- tory progress for the British. The operation apparently is aimed at bringing the left flank of the allied advance somewhat further forward as a support to the where the wedge has been driven farthest into the German front.

More than twice as many German submarines were lost in the first ten months of this year as in all of last year the premier asserted.

Grandson of Captain H. H. Cumings of Tidioute Victim of a Submarine NAME HEADS LIST OF THOSE LOST Had Been in France Driving an Announces Victims Heading the list of casualties on the Transport Antilles is the name of H. H. emergency address unknown. Investigation however re- veals the fact that the young man Is the son of Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Curningg of Philadelphia and a grandson of the late Captain H. H. of Tidioute. Telephonic inauiry of Mrs. Harold of who' is an aunt of the young man developed the fact that Mr. Cumings had en- listed in the French Ambulance Corps last March as a driver and that he had recently been discharged after com- pleting the term of his enlistment. Mrs. Hawkey stated that recently she had been in conversation her brother H. H. and that he had stated that his Son had com- pleted his term of service and was preparing to return -home and that he would do so at the first oppor- tunity. Circumstances are such that there is no doubt that the name of the man who went down on the Atlantic is that of young who like his illustrous grandfather responded to the call for arms. Mr. Cumings is 20 years of age and was an expert automobile driver so that when the call came he left with a number of other young men from Philadelqhia to do his bit in the am- bulance work in France. Posessed of cool nerves and with great ability he soon won commendation by his work in the ambulance corps. His letters home were of vast interest and were filled many obser- vations of the work that were most in- teresting and engaging. He is sur- vived by his parents and one brother Pierce of Philadelphia. Oct. casu- alty list shows that not all the lost were Americans. The of whom-many were probably killed by the came principally from Spain and Portugal. Some of the non-commissioned army among the American troops were men of foreign birth.

The closing week of the campaign is being hampered on the part of certain rural communities in the middle west and south and by reports of deliberate efforts on the part of the treasury department' to make the re- turns appear less than the figures actually show.
