TAKE INITIATIVE AT VARIOUS
POINTS AND BOMB CITY OF
MANNHEIM AFTER AERO
Increased cannonading in the reg
ion of Verdun, especially around
Douaumont, the Chaume wood and
the Caurieres wood, where a year
ago, were the theaters of some of
the fiercest encounters in the war, in
dicates apparently the intention of
the Germans to keep the French
forces in this sector well occupied
or might even mean a renewed ef
fort to break through at this vital
The allies, however, are evidently
making ready for an untoward event
and have taken the initiative in
other directions. A British air
squadron has successfully bombed
the city of Mannheim, the great
Rhine commercial center and one of
the most important bases for the
revictualling of the Germans on the
western front. Numbers of fires
were started in this city, a ton of
bombs being dropped. The British
squadron had numerous combats
with the German airplanes in this
expedition and one of the British
machines was forced to make a
Moderate Artillery Work.
Paris, Dec. 25. The ofScial com
munication issued tonight says:
"There was moderate artillery ac
tivity over the greater part of the
front, quite spirited on the right
bank of the Meuse. South of Juvin
court we raided the enemy lines
and brought back prisoners."
Belgian communications: "In the
course of the last two days we have
bombarded Schoor, Lekke and the
road to Schoorbecke, in retaliation
for the use by the enemy of poison
gas shells directed against Rams
capelle. There was artillery action
in the region of Bixschetoote. Last
night enemy prisoners were taken in
the region of Merckem."
British Army Headquarters in
France, Dec. 25. Christmas .day
was bright and cold on the battle
front, but there were no demonstra
tive celebrations. Also there was no
fraternizing with the Germans as
hapened on the first and even on the
second Christmas of the war. The
German methods of warfare have
wholly destroyed any tendencies of
that sort among the Britons.
The British guns have been active
during the last few days. Yester
day they achieved considerable con
centration on the enemy in front of
Bccklaere and inflicted many cas
ualties. Haig Sends Christmas Greetings.
London, Dec. 25. Field. Marshal
Haig, according to the official an

messages to the various allied com
manders. The following message
went to General Pershing, command

"From all ranks of the British
armies in France I send our best
wishes for Christmas and the new
year to our comrades of the Ameri

proud to think the' new year will see

From Wednesday's Daily.
Mrs. Mary Hall, wife of John S.
Hall, has in her possession a cream
pitcher, which is trimmed in blue
and gold, which has been in the
family for more than two hundred
years, and has been handed dowfr

eldest daughter of the eldest daugh

GOT OUT FOR CHRISTMAS.
From Wednesday's Daily.
Roy R. Holly, who has been in the
detention camp for some time on ac
count t the quarantine at Camp
Funston, wrote a letter to his folks
a few days before Christmas stating
that he had been released and that

that the quarantine would extend
o"ver the holiday and that he would
have to be cooped up. He rejoiced
in that he was fortunate enough to
get out and enjoy the season.
