(UP)-French and.British high eon mancls today prepared to rush large numbers of Krili»' troops arriving in Prance into positions on the wester . lioiU where French troops reported an advance into Cm man territory in the rich Saar Induslrial area Accelerated Franco-British milt- * • — tary operations against Germany coincided with disclosure that Genera) Edmund Ironside, chief of the British general staff, and British Air Marshal Sir Cyril Ncwall have been at their posts on French soil since Sept. 4, Aided by airplanes and big nor-ts ?„, -1"^, °. le T * re " ?l1 tl ' 00 ' )s were reported to have reached (he edges of .several towns In the Saar ba ' Artillery fire thundered all along the 120-mile front. It was made known officially that -British troops were now arriving in France mid would take the' ' places alongside the French in ti fighting lines. French official communiques wci most reserved but reports fro Luxemberg and Switzerland nort and south of tho active front Ii dicnted that the French had mac considerable advances in an opei ation Ts'hleh seemed only in i opening phase. As many as 600 tanks were use in one operation alone, ninone eral on the front at the northcas corner ot Prance, according to re ports. It was said further that tl French were net using the crac troops in the Maginot Line but ha sent newly mobilized reservist against the Germans. French troops wore nnderstoo to have attacked in several sectors The northeast comer area wa selected it was believed because tl frontier is not marked by n rive nnd the French troops and tank were able . to advance througl K-coded hills directly onto the Oer man advance lines. Thc Luxcmberjf and Swiss re ports said thnt the French ha< captured a series of pill boxes nnd artillery emplacements at the out side of their drive and thus were able to continue their progress.: Parisians had caught up on the! • sleep during .. the. night •; because thejre_ha.d_b<?tri -no-air-alarms,,'anc people going to work were cheerful Trains proceeded on schedule, newspapers appeared en tbne and cafes were able to serve both coffee ant rolls. As the result of three false air alarms, the government ordered that henceforth air alarms shoult not be given unless there was rea reason to believe' enemy planes were approaching. It was rncogni/.ed that will) thc front now active, there should be constant German fieiia! incursions which would not necessarily bring enemy planes here Though it was estimated that hardly mere than l.OOO.COO. people remained In Paris' normal 3,500.000, authorities continued to appeal to parents to take their children away, insisting that (here were still loo many people in the capital. There seemed no let-up in Ih. flow of reservists toward the front. The high morale of the people was shown by the humorous signs which tradesmen left on their shops to advise their patrons that they had been called to the colors. "Tomorrow I will shave people free at the front," said a sign on a barber shop. "Have an errand to do. Will lie right back." said a shoemaker's sign. "Gene lo Ihe opening of the hunting season," niniouiiccd a grocery store placard. "Be back for Easter, above all at Trinity," said a sign on a Trlnite Place shop. "Gone for the annual mobilization period. Return right away," said another sign. Livestock EAST ST.
