Gen. Ferdinand Foch
Elevated to Rank of
Marshal of France
Paris, Aug. 6.(Havas Agency.)
The council of ministers has ele
vated Gen. Ferdinand Foch, commander-in-chief
of the allied forces
on the western front, to be a mar
shal of France.
The ministers have also con
ferred the military medal on Gen
eral Petain, commander-in-chief of
the French armies on the western
President Poincare presided at the
meeting of the council In pre
senting the name of General Foch,
Premier Clemenceau said:
"At the hour when the enemy, by
a formidable offensive on a front of
100 kilometers, counted on snatch
ing the decision and imposing a
German peace upon us, General
Foch and his admirable troops van
"Paris is not in danger, Soissons
and Chateau Thierry have been re
conquered and more than 200 vil
lages have been delivered. Thirty
five thousand prisoners and 700 can
non have been captured, and the'
enemy's high hopes before the week
have been crushed. The glorious
allied armies have thrown him from
the banks of the Marne to the Aisne.
Such are the results of the high
command's strategy, superbly exe
cuted by incomparable commanders.
The confidence placed by the re
public and by all the allies in the
conqueror of St. Gond, the Yser and
the Somme has been fully justified."

Com Crop of State
Still Has Chance to
Return a Good Yield
The corn croo of- Nebraska was
damasred by the hot winds of Sun-
dav and Monday. Just what that
damasre will amount to in the aggre
gate no one can tell at this time, as
some localities have suffered much
more than others.
The greatest damage, according to
reports being obtained by the rail
roads, seems to be in the South Platte
country, and in the counties in the
eastern part of the state. Through
the northern portion and in a greater
part of the western half of the state,
it is believed that he damage is light.
In the localities where the damage
has not been serious, railroad officials
who keep in touch with crop condi
tions are of the opinion that with rain
within the next two or three days, the
corn would round to and make a
fairly good crop.
To German People
Amsterdam, Aug. 6. There is in
creasing anxiety in Germany over the
situation as it has developed in , -cent
months, according to a dispatch
to the Handelsblad. I he dispatch
reads: '. . , ' , ;
"The number of those in Germany
who, like Dr. Richard . von . Kuehl-
mann, former foreign secretary, are
convinced that force of arms will not
put Germany on its feet again, is
steadily growing. There Is sufficient
justification for a Jess comforUble
feeling now than a few .nonths ago
not only as a result of the retreat
from the Marne and the American
danger, but. also on account of the
precarious political and economi: sit
uation in Austria. The Russian ques
tion, however, is the one which
causes the greatest anxiety to all."
