TABLETS . 39 f-iondon, Oct. 22.- fCanadian Press di-spatch from Renter's).-An official report from f^ield Marshal Haig. dated July 20, covering the operations since the first week of December last has been published. Its chief interest lies in Gen. Haig'a account of the Gorman offensive of March 21. He begins by emphasizing that the difficulties created by the transition from an offensive to a defensive policy, necessitated .by the collapse., of Russia, were accentuated by the re-organizatiou of the British divisions from a 13-batia-lion to a, 10 battalion basis and'the extension of the British front to Paris. Meaiwhlle, the large reserves which the enemy was able to create by transferring numerous .divisions from the eastern front enabled him to carry ont extensive training with units completed to establishment. ' Altogether at least M German divisions paftlcilpfited in the, opferafion^ of March *51-pS<"ilnmber considerBbly. in excess'of the total forces oomposing the entire British' army in France. The total British force on the original hattlefront on the morning of March 21 was 29 infantry divisions, three cavalry divisions, of which 1!) Infantry divisions were in line. "The Germans, however, failed to disturb the British and French armies as they hoped to do and a continuous defensive .line was maintained, although it was necessary to give up a great deal of land, mainly the territory despoiled by the Germans in their retreat of 1917 and which was hot strategically vital to the allies. In retiring, the iHeld marshal says, it was thought best to move back more rapidly-on the south.' The ' territory there had been overrun by the Germans and French assistance could reach that sector much. more rapidly than the front' further north. In addition, the iTouthern end 'of the line was not so important as the centre and the north, instructions necessary to this . end;, ftccordlngly were given the British'^5th arn^y. early in February. Thldk fog which tinveloped the battlefield ow: thy :Binor,hlng8 of March 21 and 22, und.Oubiedly maslc-ed the fire of enemy artillery .machine guns and rifles. The ^outheVn sector was lightly held and it had not been possibla to construct formidable de-tenses there. These conditions enabled the Germans to penetrate and turn the flanks of certain localities. The field marshal concludes by saying: "A much larger number of troops would, therefore, have been required to romie'r the defense of the rivers Somme and Olse secure." BOLSHEVIKIKIND 10 WE Stockholm, Oct. 21.-The last of the American Red Cross workers in Russia reached Stockholm today after a {our dfty trip by train from Petrograd. The imrty consists of Major Allan Warden, Oapt. J, W. Andrews and Dr. D. M. Davidson. The Bolshevlki showed the Bed Cross party every courtesy, and Sverdloff, president of the Bussiau Ked Cross, and many Bolshevik! offl-cials, sought to obtain the assistance of the American Red Cross to prevent the wholesale starvation of non-combatants In Russia this winter. � The Americans looked after the entente prisoners at ^Moscow and Potro-grad att^r the departure of the entente missions and relieved the condition of many unfortunates, in Husslan jails. United States Vice-Consul Leonard, who held the, post at Attrakhau, and Vice-consul Burr wer� ktth in jail at Moscow when the Red Cro�s party left, Imt the Norwegian legation had been assured that they would soon be released. These two officials were first Imprisoned at Tsartsln and have been prisoners for pearly two months. They have undargone great prlva- tlnnu. ^ SCHOOLS PLAN! FORM SOOTH Edmonton, Oct. 22.-Schools tor Alberta's new Mennonite settlers are to be established at once. The department of education is calling for tenders for the erection of a number of new buildings jn the several colonies in the south country, and others will follow in due course. Eight school districts will be organized and it is intended" to have some of the schools in operation during the early winter. John T. Ross, deputy minister of education, has just returned from a trip to the southern part of the province, where he personally visited the Mennonite settlements and arranged for immediate action on the school problem, in accordance with the policy previously laid down by the minister. The Mennonltes are to have schools quite like other folks. The new settlers are disposed to be law-abiding and to donform with the Canadian way of doing things, Mr. Ross reports. They were given to understand that no exceptions were to be made for them, but that they were to have schools under proclsely the same conditions as English, French or Canadian people. Some of them ashed it teachers could not be allowed on the permit system, but the answer was a decisive nay. All tiie teachers for these new schools are to be fully qualified, and that point has been made clear and definite. The handling of the situation has been facilitated considerably by the appointment of the inspector for each district as official trustee, and tho erection of scliools, engagement of teachers and other details will be under his direction. Mr. Ross visited tlie settlements at Standoff, Raley, the Mclntyro ranch and in the vicinity of Stirling, Raymond and Magrath, at all of which places the Mennonltes have bought lands. The settlements average about 100 persons each. The newly arrived settlers are not of quite the same kind as the other Mennonltes in the west, it seems. Mr. Ross found them professing to be fey lowers of John Huter, and. therefore, known as Huteritos. They are thorough-going communists, and their villages have been laid off on a true community plan, with a common dining hall and other features of neighborly nearness. They don't want to fight, but their general attitude and i5pinions gave Mr. Ross the impression that no difficulty would be experienced from their presence in Alberta. FALLS TO DEATH W/HILE DOING GOOD ERRAND New York.-While searching for a needy family on the third floor of the tenement house at 2S9 South Fourth street, Brooklyn, Mrs. Sarah Morse, mother of Dr. Joseph Morse, fell from a window to the rear yard and was killed instantly. Mrs. Morse had long been known tor her charity among the poor of the Williamsburg section and when she was told about the South Fourth street family sho started at once to give aid. Mrs. Morse was also active in tho Red Cross. TRIED and TESTED Remedy Eldnay or BUd'ar tronblaa by flrit remoTins the cause. If yon are a snlTerer ute Oin Pills. BOe. �4lox.
