DEPaRTM ROADS FOR ADVANCE BUILT BY AMERICANS Engineers Have Been With British Four Months Van guard of Aero Fleet Arrives. No Heavy Fighting. American engineers played a large par; in the preparations leading up to ihf"1 successful British blow toward Cnmhrai last week.

Count von Kertling, the new Irr.yc-ial Chancellor, declared yesterday before the Reichstag. He expre: :-ed the wish that the present efforts of the Bolsheviki would bring peace.
