General Von Buelow Says War May
Continue for Indefinite
T A L K S T O CORRESPONDENTS
By Carl W. Ackerman
(United Press Staff Correspondent)
German Army Headquarters on the
Somme, via Berlin and "Wireless to
Sayville, Nov. 11.-As long as the al-
lies maintain their present conditions,
peace is out of the question, and if
they expect to force peace by a de-
cisive blow along the Somme, that ex-
pectation is an impossibility.
So declared General von Buelow,
commander-in-chief of the German
forces along the particular front where
interest now centers in the great war.
He spoke to foreign correspondents at
his headquarters today.
"The English and French face an
impossibility along the Somme," he de-
clared, "if they expect to break
through. Every soldier, every officer,
every general on the German side
knows that the enemy cannot do so.
It is technically and physically im-
possible. The battle will continue two
months, two years, 200 years until the
English and French get so much iron
pounded into their heads that they
can't carry them."
London Says Columbian Torpedoed
London, Nov. 11.-The American
steamer Columbian was torpedoed. A
Lloyd's dispatch tonight said that she
sank. The dispatch apparently was
confirmed in later messages from Ber-
lin which said the crew, half of whom
are Americans, ,'had landed on the
Spanish coast together with the crews
of the Norwegian steamer Fordal and
Bulto, and the British steamer Sea-
tonia, which also were torpedoed. The
combined crews number 163 men. The
Lloyd's dispatch reporting the sinking
of the Columbian, an American-Hawai-
ian line freighter bound from Boston
to Brest, was the first news of the
ship since she wirelessed on Tuesday
saying two submarines held her up
and that one of them shelled her. No
