Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 29, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY. AUGUST 29, ini� ifllE LETHBHIDGE DAILV HiVXLD PAGi; SEVEN Terrific Hammer Blows of Allies Rapidly Demoralize The Great Hun Machine with tho British Forces In Franco, Aug, 29.~The townn of Bolloy, Ahbb-vUlorR, Herbeaourt and PnilUerB were apparently tokou during tho night nnti ourly this morning, tho aormana oHorhis reslatiftico jrow onlly rear North of tho Ulvor Sommo tho British hagaii moving: ttnatn thin iiioriiliit; and are reported to ^have caplurod Olnchy. 'oboiit haU'wuy botwoou Iho river and Bapaumo. Olnchy Is one of the highest posl-' lions In thiB sectiori of tho battle zone and It ovorlookw a wide atrotcli to tho oast ward. There was fierce fighting for this position this year, becaiiBo of its importance but the UrIllBh Buem to have taken Jtr easily this morning. Us iKiBscsBion by the BrltlRh m'ay cauBo a change In any plan tho Oor-[ inans have for holding tho lino rougli-j ly 'from Peronno on tho south to I uomewh'ttre near Bapaume. North of Uapaiime there has been I heavy fighting at various placet I where the Brltlah are cleaning up ' strong German posts. . * Menace Wiiole Line Bullecowrt is less than n nillo from ' tho British line this morning, Genor-I ally tho main British body is wlttiln � 1000 or 11!00 yards of tho famous Dru-i eourl-Quentin.lInc and the country up I to tho lino itaoif virtually has been � cleared of patrol. A smash through { here would menace tho whole area i back of the old Hiudeuburg line and ; the next place where the Germans i can offer stiff roislstance is, perhaps, ' the line of the Canal Du Nord. After that there arc said to he no '; prepared defenses of any Importance. 1 The Germans in their confidence never considered they would need Iheni. ,\BlrIde the Scarpe the British this , inorninK ntoved from tho lino east of 1 Artoux through the cast sldo of Oppy I Wood. Posts apparently are in Guv ; rollo, half-way across the Greenland I Mill, oast of Pelves and east of Boir-i ry. British posts also ere In Remy and Haucouri, east of CrolsiUes. Mutiny In Ranks Jigsaw Wood, souih of the Scarpo, and tho last wooded position in which there was a boche strong-hold, has been cleared of tho enemy. Tho defeatii of tho last two days and the hammerlDK �eeni to have almost led to open mutiny In aome uf tho Qarniat^ formations. The 'iUlU Oertnan 'division Is especially mentioned in this connection. One officer of tblB uult said his men absolutely refused in a body to fight and ho personally shot ten fur tbotr refusal, lie added that even that did no good, for as the officer said, "they are ab-Bulutely hupolesa." He therefore surrendered himself to the British. Canadlana Caute Panic The officer added that when hla men learned they were opposed by the Canadians the Germans almost fiturtod ti panic. A Conadlau corps is reported to have captured sl.xty cunuou in the operations In tho last four days. It le clear the Germans cannot permit tho BritlBh to advance farther In this quarter � without endangering their whole plan for a gradual retirement, to the south. The resistance which the enemy has been making on tho west front, has varied greatly on different parts of the hundred mile sector on which the battle Is ruglug. Some German divlaions have been nghllng wUh their old time delorndii-atlon while others have been surrendering, very freely. While it la necessary to guard against exaggerated expectations of a Gorman collapse, H is nevertheless true that the fighting of tho last month has given definite evijience of a notable falling away in German morale. Loss of Morale There Is also proof of increasing insubordination and disobedience to orders wliicli Is very significant In an army bearing the reputation of the German machine. Captured orders tell of the refusal of new drafts to enter tho trenches. Others censure officers 'for laxity in dealing with offenders. Germans often are encountered toward the west of the roads. They carry packages containing a few clean clothes and two days' rations and ask British pafrola the way to the prison cagee.
