"The allied command consider with full confidence that operations as u whole, are thus: "Tho second phase of tho grand offensive ia ending with tho strategic; clownfall of the Germans. The actions which continue today are tha lust convulsions ot the battle of Ar-nientlerea or rather its reaction. They cannot ho of capital Importance. "The main thing for our enemiea id not to occupy this or that spot. )t la not to obtain such results that they have spnnt three hundred thousaiul men. All their nation, all tho world, knows that their desire is to bring about the decision of the war. Thia is beyond their reach today. Havi they a chance ot uttalning It tomorrow? What will they try? Consider tho idea which has governed them. U is the necessity ot finishing the conflict ; they have promised to their peo< pie tho crushing ot the enemy In tha west. "On that point they must reconiio their Impotence. They desired to expend their troops and their inventiva ganins in the pursuit of a decision. They cannot find this by a usurer's battle. On its aide the Kntente Is completely ready, thanks to two decisions-the brigading ot Amerlcait troops with the French and Lloyd Qeorga'a man power bill.
