Noyon is believed to have been entered by the French, athough no mention of the fall of the city was made in the official statement from Paris today. The latest advices had French troops fighting their way into the city. The French actiTity last night was confined chiefly to the work of the artillery, according to the war office. Apparently there is a lull in the advance upon the retreating Germans, to enable the French troops to recover from their arduous efforts of the past few days.

President Wilson's letter to Chair- man Sims confirms the belief of those close to the White House that the president is preparing soon to announce a policy of Federal de- velopment of the water power re- sources of the United States. Passage of the bill with the am- endments denouced by Chairman Sims would have tied up practically all water power sites in private hands for an indefinite period.
