The disintegration of this line is being hastened by the vigorous strokes delivered by the French along the Aisne, while further east the German left flank in the active battle urea'fs being hammered hard by other French forces and the American 1st army in the Champagne, Argonne and Verdun regions. BRITISH NEARING LE CATEAU Most telling in its immediate effect 4s -ttie thrust by Field Marshal Haig southeast of Cambrai, where American troops also are operating.

AMERICAN THRUST EAST OF VERDUN The American army is delivering hard blows upori the trembling German defensive system.

GREAT AMERICAN AIR SQUADRON In.the Argonne, where a junction has-been effected with the French at Lancon, new attacks were launched this morning.
