London, Oct. 7. With the
diplomats reported by Athens already
to have withdrawn from Sofia, the
maelstrom of war today rapidly tended
toward engulfment of the Balkans.
Following an unsatisfactory reply by
Bulgaria to Russia's warlike ultimatum,
and dispatch of another similar ultima
tum from Bulgaria to Serbia, hostilities
were expected soon along the Serbo
Hungarinu border, simultaneously with
an Austro-German attack on Serbia's
northern frontier. ,
General Lillian Von Sanders, the Ger
man officer in charge of Turkish oper
ations, has arrived at Plfillippopolis and

-Official announcement of this action
was followed by optimistic predictions
on Germany 's part that the move means

speedy end of the vast European struggle.
No word came from Sofia as to what
her forces had done, but it was believed
possible that her troops had already en
tered Serbia in an effort- to bottle up
that nation bv cutting off her railway
communication with the outside world.
This view was strengthened by the
fact that the Greek minister at Sofia
reported several days ago that Bulgaria
would invade Serbia simultaneously
with her Austro-German cohorts.
At any rate, war on Bulgaria, cither
