Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 26, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1918 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE Allies Score Big Advances Today In Palestine, Balkans and Along the Rheims- Verdun Front in France With the French Army in France, Sept 26.--(10 ajr.).- (Associated Press). - At 9.30 o'clock today a French officer of high rank told the correspondent that the news from the principal points of the front attacked were excellent. The French 4th army has taken Servon, which has been in German hands since 1914, and Navarin farm, a strong ^position, around which there has been much violent fighting.

The only means of exit for the Bulgarians here is a narrow passage between Kichevo and Krushevo. (This body comprises the first .Bulgarian army.) The army seems doomed to destruction or surrender, or to a retreat into Albania, as the allied heavy artillery now installed northwest of Monastlr commands the passes In the other directions. ALLIES RACE FOR U8KUB. London, Sept. 26.-The position of the first Bulgarian army on the allied left- in Macedonia Is dangerous, according to reports reaching here, but it Is not believed that the army Is faced with Immediate disaster. The Italians, who are advancing against the first army from the south, must pass over much extremely rough country before they can get in contact with it. It Is believed that the first army which is commanded by Gen. Geshof, will be forced to attempt a retreat westward into the mountains of the Serbo-Albanla frontier. The country is very rough and It would be Impossible to handle artillery. The matter of food supplies also would be difficult. *The reports also Indicate that the Serbians, who have cut the German  Bulgarian communications, are joining in the allied race for Uskub. -GAIN SOME MILES London, Sept. 26. - (7 p.m.). - French and American troops launched an attack this morning against the German positions on a front of 40 miles between Suippe and the River Meuse. j The Germans voluntarily abandoned their forward positions. There was not much artillery or infantry resistance to the Franco-American drive. The Americans attacked on the right wing and the French made their assault on the left. The "lied forces penetrated the German position for some miles.

Berlin, Sept. 26.-(Via London.)- The capture of 50 French and Americans in Lorraine to the east ot the Moselle is reported in today's army headquarters statement. British Losses Light. The British casualties during the operations in Palestine have been Ibbs than one-tenth of the numher of prisoners taken from the Turks, an official announcement states. (The latest report gave the total prisoners as "more than 40,000.") The text of the statement reads: "in the northern area, our cavalry has occupied Tiberius, Semakahand Es-Samra, on the shores of Lake Tiberius, Sea of Galilee, despite the determined resistance ot the Turkish garrisons. "East ot the Jordan, our cavalry has occupied Amman on the Hedjaz railway and are in pursuit of the Turkish force retreating northward along the railway. "Since the commencement of the operations on the night of Sept. 18, our total casualties from all causes amount to less than one-tenth of the number o� prisoners captured." Serbian Official. London, Sept. 26.-The following addition to the Serbian official statement was issued this afternoon: "An enemy battery which attempted to take up a position in order to come into action was attacked by our machine guns. A complete German machine gun section was also made prisoner. The Germans complain that the Bulgarians had abandoned them intentionally and said that the Germans had continually compelled the Bulgarians, hy threats of opening fire aa. them, to return to the' fighting line. Greek Official. Athens, Sept. 25.-Greek troops arc aiding in the Allied advance in Macedonia, on the three sectors of the front, according to �n official statement from the Greek war office today. East ot the Vardar, the Bulgars are in flight toward Valandova with the British and Greeks in pursuit. The statement reads: "The allies are pursuing; the enemy on the entire front between Monastir and Veles. Franco-Greek detachments are marching toward Prilep, � which has been occupied by the French. "French, British and Greek, troops already are beyond Gievgell, north of Lake Doiran. On the left bank of the Vardar the British and Greeks are pursuing the fleeing enemy , toward Valandova." % (By the Associated Press) French and American troops are today storming the German positions in Champagne and further east in what apparently i� another major stroke by Marshal Koch, The new attack is progressing favorably according to early reports, BULGARIA HAS BEEN INVADED / On the Macedonian front, British troops have invaded Bulgaria as the Serbians and other allied armies pursue the hard pressed Germans and Bulgarians east and west of the Vardar. GREAT POSSIBILITIES IN NEW ALLIED DRIVE The new allied thrust In the west comes on a front which has not been very active since the Germans failed to advance in Champagne in the defeated offensive of July, east and west oi Rheims. French troops are attacking in Champagne which runs from Rheims eastward to the Argonne west-of Verdun. The Americans are moving forward east of the Champagne. Great possibilities might result from a successful allied advance on the front east of Rheims, as the German communications would be severed and the formidable enemy position from Arras to Laon endangered. The length of the attacking front is- not disclosed, but it may [possibly from Rheims eastward past Verdun t.o Southwest of Metz. BULGARIAN FIRST ARMY IN TROUBLE In Macedonia, the allies are advancing all along the 130-mile front between Monastir and Lake Doiran. The Bulgarian first army on the allied left has been placed in a dangerous position by the cutting of the Prilep-Veles road at Izvor, while the Serbians are in the outskirts of Ishtil, 18 miles east of Veles, and one of the bases of the Bulgarian second army. Apparently the Veles-Ishtib line, the most formidable forts of the enemy south of Uskub, will prove untenable. SERBIAN8 MAKING RAPID PROGRESS Northeast of Lake Doiran, British troops have crossed the frontier into Bulgarian Macedonia, threatening the extreme eney left flank. Enemy territory was invaded at KoitBturino, a few miles south ot Strumitza. Kousturino is at the headwaters ot the Trekanay river, which runs through virtually level country to Strumitza. Meanwhile the French and Greeks are pushing eastward from the Vardar river in the direction of Strumitza, which is situated in a valley between two- high mountain ranges. The massif of Popadija, east of Babuna pass, has been taken by the Serbians. Babuna pass is a rocky defile through which the Vardar flows to the Aegean sea and presents a difficult problem to attacking troops. TURKS FAIL TO RALLY Turkish troops in Palestine have not rallied from their defeat which must by this time have forced them past the northern end of the Sea of Galilee. MINISTRATION OF LIBERATED TERRITORY Parjs, Sept. 26.-CHavas.)-Liberated territory in Palestine will be ad-re'ntsterecl under the agreement between the British, French and Russian governments in 1916, it is learned hero. England and France will carry out the agreement under which France is charged with the prepara- tion ot a scheme of self-government for the people of Palestine. This work will be the subject of conversation which will take place, shortly. When the Bolsboviki authorities took control in Russia, they published a number of secret diplomatic documents found in the archives in Pet-rograd. Among them was a convex tlon negotiated between Russia, France and Great Britain, under which Alexandretta in Asiatic Turkey was, to he a free poTt and Palestine was to be a protectorate under the three governments. York Review": ".Miss Talmadge goes on apace. No other picture star has made euch rapid upward strides as this beautiful and talented girl in the past twelve months." And she is progressing all the time; each picture surpasses its predecessors-that it the open secret of the tremendous popularity of this Select Star. "By Right of Purchase" is a highly dramatic photoplay ot metropolitan society life in which the heroine, Mar-got Hughes, marries Chadwick Himes solely for his money, despite her infatuation for Dick Derwent, a handsome profligate. Himes loves her passionately, but it takes many months and much suffering before Margot works out her salvation and finds that she truly loves the man to whom she belonged only by right of purchase. A stirring photodrama with a punch, and replete with heart interest. A good comedy will also be shown.

Pro-Germans in the United States were to have been appointed agents of the bureau, it is said.
