You will be in my country by Christmas. ' As aKsylriier, 1 congratulate you." Yanks Slaughter Them. American Headquarters in France, Oct. 4.-When German forces advanced on Tuesday in an attempt to .capture Apremont, on the front northwest of Verdun, American tanks suddenly emerged from the town in all directions.

The American tanks after smashing their way through the German lines, wheeled about and repeated the operation with deadly results. The enemy losses were extremely heavy. In one German company, nine men were killed and thirty were wounded out of seventy. In another company, ten were killed and forty weTe wounded out of eighty. U. S. Official. Washington, Oct. 4.-The official communication follows: "Headquarters of the American Expeditionary Forces, Oct. 3.-American troops fighting witii the French have driven back the enemy and taken Blanc Mont and other positions in Champagne.

The Day's War Summary (By the Associated Press) Northeast of St. Quentin the British today are fighting in the open country behind the Hindenburg line after pushing ahead five miles since Monday. From-Lens northward and from Rheims eastward to the Argonne the allies continue to bend back the German flanks In smashing attacks. The breach driven through the German defenses south of Beaurevoir is on a. front of five miles. To the north, (he British are plunging ahead east, southeast from Le Catelet, while south, the French are attacking successfully between Sequehart and Lesdins. The Germaft resistance is bitter, but there has been ifo let up in the allied pressure. Thursday, the British captured 4,000 prisoners. CAVALRY AND TANKS THROUGH BREACH With the British in the open country northeast of St. Quentin and the cavalry and tanks pouring through the breach, the German positions around Cambrai and Laon will become very precarious. Through the opening in the line, Marshal Foch would be able to throw troops in and take Cambrai and Laon in the rear. PROGRESS EAST OF LENS West of Lille, the British continue to press the Germans eastward while extending their line south of Lens to Mericourt, where a good advance likewise has been made. Between Lens and Armentieres the British have moved forward an average of more than three miles on a 20-mile front and east of the Bois Grenler are within six miles of the outer walls of the fortress of Lille. Meanwhile, the British and Belgians in Flanders are widening the salient cast of Ypres. which threatens the German positions on the coast and the network of railroads .west of Ghent. There are no indications that the Germans have halted their retirement in the Lille salient, but it is not considered probable that they will give up Lille without heavy fighting. PINCHING ENEMY EAST OF RHEIMS Around Rheims and oast of the Suippe, the French are drawing closer the sides of the German salient oast of Rheims. American troops have joined the French east of the Suippe and have assisted in the advance northwest of Somme-Py by capturing the strong positions of Blanc Mont and the Medeah farm. Further east, the French have taken Orfeuil and Bomont Chateau. In Albania, the Austrians are reported retreating in disorder now that their base at Durazzo has been destroyed by entente warships. American, British and Italian warships participated in the attack on Durazzo. This sensational exploit, which was carried out on Wednesday, has reduced the Austrians to one large naval centre n the Adriatic, that of Pola. taking sides with the allies. n considering the question of the attitude of Austria-Hungary, the possibility of Hungary taking action separate from Austria should not be ignored.
