Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 29, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME XL LETHBRIDGE. ALBERTA*! TUCMSIMY, AUGUST 29, 1918 NUMBER 220 FRENCH HUNS ARE NOW FOR DEFENCE OF CAMBRAI AND DOUAI � OEFA HIiENBURG N Allied Operations Are Rapidly Enveloping Old Positions of Germans Before Spring Drive. FIGHTING WILL SOON DECIDE FATE OF HINDENBURG LINE Huns Forced to Retreat So Rapidly They Lose All Control of Operations Washingloil. Aug. 1:9.-Devclo])-Clients on the western baltlotront diir-jug the next lorty-oighL hours should ideternilnc the tato of the much vaunted "Hindenburg Ihie" in the opinion ct some: lullltnry onielals h-jre. With _ tne atreugth oi: the lino iilreauy mater-daily Impali-ed ,.l)y,the British \s-edge drivdh around It's left flank and even more telHng blows threatened b>':.the eteajiy.advanbe ot the French through Mosle toward The Somnio and by the British -east of Arras, observers Jiore believed that the scheme of defense popularly held in Germany to bo the bulwark of th^ western front is in a fair way to become untenable before the main Gorman forces have boon ilriven back to it. Tho impression prevailing in military circles here is that Clonnral Focli's tactics have forced upon the enemy the necessity of making an effort along the present front to stay tho allicil advance, without the o)3tion of withdrawing "unnoticed" to a j)revlously selected lliie. Fo' more than six weeks, they point out, the :naln German armies have been under constant pressure, which, during tho last ten days, has been so great as to necessitate a practically unoheckud J'etreat on a sixty mile front. This withdrawal on tho part of the Germans, while not precipitate,' has been swift fenough, their maisi concentrations being within tho zone of allied artillery lire. Tho longer the tactics of tlie last week are ke;it up, army olTicers declare, tho more dini-cult wlll^be attempts of the German general staff to stop them. CRISIS BETWEEN SPAIN ANDH Another Spanisli Ship Sunk- Spain Must Carry Out Its Threat Paris, Aug. 29,-The Spanlih iteamer Crusa has been sunk by a German aubmarlne, it Is reported here. Newspapers consider that this event will bring to a crisis the relations between Spain and Germany. Availiible maritime records fall to show a Spanish syip by tne name of Crusa. \ ^ ^ ,. � ;- With The French Armies In Tho Field, August 29.'-(Associated I'ross)- Tho rapidly succeediug military events not only confirm that the Germans have lost all control of their oporalions in the regions of tlie Somme. Avre and Oise Itivers, but they indicate that tho enemy's own retreat ia getting out of hand. Tlie effort to stem llie Frencii pursuit by flBhtiug rear guard actions witli machine gun sections, leaving a section at intervals of about 400 yards, was only locally successful. On ground especially favorable' for that sort of resistance such as the terrain around Roye it gained some time for the enemy, enabling him to move ,11 great many guns and a considerable part of his material behind the Canal Du Nord and north of Noyon. All Speed In. Retreat Cut once tills system of. fighting was mastered the strength o� tho fiermau rear guard dwindled - to almost nothing. The Germans, hustled violently by tHo French advance gnard. were obliged to � an engagement with Important forces or to qui�ken their retreat. The Germans adopted the latter alternative and since yesterday morning they Imve been making nil possible haste on the road leading to St. Quenlin, Lc. Fere and tlio Kindopburg line. The .strong position of QuP8iu)y Wood, just west of the Canal Du Nord, from wliere the Germans tried by moans of tho lieavy lire of "pll calibres of artillery to check the French troops advancing on both sides of tho Roye-Noyou KoaU. was captured this morning. Pressure from General Humbert's tliifd army from the �..est and from General Mangln's men who crossed tho River Oise from the south and took Morlincourt this morning while other Frencli troops were entering Xoyon, adds greatly to the diftl�ulties of tlie enemy. The increased danger from those directions will oblige the Germans to make further sac-rincc? in order to save General Von Hutler's army from disaster. Ti'.o Somme lino . having been rendered difllcult for the fiermans by the rapidity of the Entente allied pursuit there is now a question,.with the French troops ready to cross tlie Sorarao at the enemy's heels, where he will be able to make a further stand.
