Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 5, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LE7'IBRroGE DAILY WL^KLTi Germans Admit Line British Headquarter!, Nov. B.- (Reuters.)-The Germans yeater-day (jot the wor�t hammering that they :hav'e ever received. It ha* become a habit of speech to say that.'the enemy is, ttlll unbroken arid unbeaten, but. If things con-tlnile much longer at the present rate, we w//l auMtniy awake to the realization that this state-mept has ceased to be true. A series of battles raging on the west front from Valenciennes to Stenay promise to prove the moot stupendous conflict of the war. It Is 9 mistake to suppose the allies are only engaged with rear-guards of the enemy, rotraatlrig "according to plan." The opposite Is true. The Qe^pians are being forced to fight their hardest by attacks which' threaten to achieve their strategic collapse and the successes gained by the allies have been won against Immense concentrations of'strength which are. striving In a mo&t determined manner to hojd vital points. Marshal Foch, adhering to his right angle front, Is steadily'reducing the enemy's area of manoeuvre,, squeezing him against the surrounding hills from the west, robbing him of mobility In a fash-Ion which Is likely to p^ove dis-a'strous before long. 'NEARLY A BREAK THROUGH ^'.Berlin, sNov. 5.-Formidable at-tipiolcs Iti which the French and British;' used enormous forces of artillery, and tanks, vvere made Monday against the lines on a front oi#more than 40 miles between the Scheldt and the Oise, 'the official statement from .'German headquarters todny says. In a hard struggle the Germans prevented p. break-through. In the Bleulet forest, west of the Meuse,' the statement continues we avoided strong attack^, by withdra'winp in accordance �v"th ordera to the east bank of the Meuse, north of Stenay. The town of Le Quesnoy, It Is added, was ev.icuatSd whet> it was threatened with encirclement ^uth of Catlllon, allied troops advancing ^across the Sambre-Olse can-' al, aboiit one ..mile.

The enemy reclatance here has been broken to the point of eVemoraliiaKion ana_ the Americans are pushing -northward toward Stenay, The enemy is in full retreat northward and offering little resistance. Queen Witnesses FIghi. With the Allied Armies in France and Belgium, Nov. 4.- Allied troops today began the eige of the city /Of/Ghent, .already virtually- surrounded on three sides. The assault on the city was witnessed by Queen Elizabeth of Belgium and hundreds of her ntfn-eombatant subjects. Say.1 Attacks Broke Down, Berlin, Nov. 5.--Strong attacks by the Americans on the heights cast of the Meuse broke down, says the German army lieadqiiarters report. Tentative thrusts by the Amerlcansij west of the Moselle had a similar- result, the statement declared. * ' Captttre Town of .Poullly. �With the American Army on the Se' dan Front, Nov. 5.-After ttte pon toon-bridge at � Brieulles has; been constructed the Americana threw u second bridge across the' MteuE^ at Clery-i'e-Petlt and beigan developing a new line on the heavily wooded ajid very dltfItult ground east of the' rlvqr, between Clery and, Brteulles, a mile front. The town of Poullly, In the bend of the Meuse northwest of Stenay, was captured by the Americans operating west of the Meuse. The west bank ilf the river is now held in its entirety as far north as Poullly. The troops which crossed to the east bank of the Meuse found their advance opposed by bJttfer 'machine gun and artillery tire. This was over, come, however, and the Americans-are making steady progress. The village of Beaumont,- directly west of Ppuilly, has been the American forces which advanced from the heights which they held before Beaumont. The Americans early today began clearing outjJaulnay-wood, iu the bend of the Meuse southeast of Couilly and-.thls afternoon the .wood was in thelf-pQflpeaalon. - jPiBtman. troops who baid remained wiistot the-*teU8^ began to flee across the river early today along the line ngrth;at(d south of Stenay. After des-troyihg the bridge from Stenay to LaDeu-vlU'e,, the enemy opened the Iqoka bit thp .pftnoj and flooded th^.rlv-et 8. ^wldth of Bbout two-thirds of a mlle.^ '�� ' ',  , . , TELL DETA London, Nov. 5.-In the face of the German retreat the situation changes so rapidly hour by hour that it is Impossible to give a definite Idea of the allied advance. Roughly, the allies have carried the Franco-Beigian frontier between yalencienn.^3 and Bavay, whjch is eight miles west of the fortress of Maubuege. The allies arc within two miles of Bavay. They have captured the whole of the Mormal forest except the eastern edge. BULLETINS TO REPRESENT GERMANY Amsterdam, Nov. 5.-Germania of Berlin says that Von Wlnter-feldt, former military attache at Paris, will conduct the armistice negotiations for Germany on the westerifi front. T. H.

WILLIAM ROSCOE THAYKR, OESIROY CHURCHES London, Nov. 5.-(Reuter's)-Despite the German assurance that troops have been ordered to avoid unnecessary damage there have been numerous authenticated cases of wanton dss-truotlon lecently. A French ottlcor, the statement adds, described a case at SecUn, between Lille and Arras, where the enemy dynamited the historic church, the town hall and^rosi-dences of middle class people, while all the remaining houses were plUag-etl and property destroyed, including the canton of Seclln and the adjacent canton. Renter's British headquarters staff statement repeats a letter found on a prisoners as follows : "Those on leave here are not allowed to return at present, as nothing but empty goods trains go to the front to bring back material." i COMING TO MAJESTIC Anything that will serve to dispel "Old Man Gloom" these "blue" days will most decidedly be more than welcome. What better news can be spread around than that which tells the Lethbrldgo public that tlie greatest laughing festival of all time will be with us as soon as the 'flu epidemic subsides sufficiently to allow the theatres to be re-opened. "This panacea for the blues is none other than O. H. Bubb's 1918 edition ot the cyclonic musical farce comedy "Ikey and Abay." Cartoon comedies have alway^~T)een veir popular with the average theatre goer, and it is safe to assert that "Ikey abd Abey" will be no exception to the general rule. It is one endless succession of laughs, giggles, aiiS roars, overflowing with joyfulness and unalloyed pleasure. "Ikey and Abey" will be the first attraction to play at the Majestic theatre as soon as the theatre closing^ order Is lifted hy the authorltle?. Of course, just at this time of writing it is impossible to set the exact date, but Majestic patrons- will be advised in ample time for the exact dates. Other Majestic attractions which will follow in the immediate future will include H. W. Savage's two enormous attractions "Have a Heart," (the super-musical comedy with a company of 68) and "Everywoman," (the wonder play that has everything combined, musical comedy, grand opera, drama and symphony, orchestra). Other attractions boolj^ed for early appearance at the Majestic include "The Unmarried' Mother," "Hearts of the ;World," (D. W. GHf-fith's master spectacle), "Daddy Long Legs," "The Garden of Allah," "Oit, Boy," and others. Telegrai Dr. a. W. MnsfOiV Ont, dlM wltbtn two i from Inflnenaa. ' Rev. J. A.
