WITTT THE FRENCH ARMY IN
FRANCE. J:30 P. M.. Oct. 19. (By the
Associated Press.) The first French
Army under General Debeney, after
months of severe campaigning is fur
nishing one of the best examples of
the endurance of the heroic French
troops in the fighting- on the Oise..Con-
tinuing their pressure on the Wrmin
lines during; the night. General
rebeny's troops completed the conquest
of the territory west of the canal from
Jfannappes to Noyales and this morn
ing were overcoming stout resistance
on this most difficult ground.
The Germans are favored by nature,
the ground In this region being well
adapted to the artificial floods to which
they are resorting and to ambushes.

The most competent authorities' ad
mit that the German retreat has thus

fashion. The question whether the
Germans will be able to hold the vital
points along the Aisne and Oise until
they get out of precarious situations
elsewhere is becoming more and more
acute. Yet predictions of the immedi
ate crumbling of the German line any
where are considered premature.
The Germans now occupy north of
the Aisne and the Serre the second line
of retirement called the "Hunding" po

alley of the Oise and its left upon the
hilly forest region at Grand Pre gap,
vigorously attacked by Gouraud and

NORTH OF RHEIMS. Oct. 16. (By the
Associated Press. Perhaps the most
glorious page in American military his

cluded in the Champagne battle, in
which two divisions of United States
troops the Second and the 36th have
done thein inadequately heralded part
of forcing back the German hordes
facing the famous city of Rheims.
The work of the Americans was more
notable because one of "the American
divisions the 36th entered the ter
rifio battle at an important point.
Although new to fighting and with
out ever having heard shellfine before,
the division withstood the most bitter

Americans were brigaded. The Gen

Division, having arrived during the

it made an extended advance on the

This operation was accomplished in
few- hours. A general attack was

The Americans swept away all resist-

flank the German line, known as the
Essen trench, was pouring in an en
filading fire from machine guns. AI
though this trench lay In the sector to
the left, the Americans sent over de

So rapid was the advance of the

reached the German observatory on
