PAHIS, Nov. 23. 10:45 P. M. The
following: communication was Issued
"Today, as yesterday, there was can
nonading in the north in the direction
of Solssons and Rheims.
"In the Argonne there was violent
attacks by both side, which, however,
were without results."
THIELT, Belgium, No. 23. (Via The
Hagu and London.) There are clear
indications that "General November"
will take a leading part in the opera
tions along the front by the Tser Klver.
Teh days of cold, wet weather have
been followed by three days of frost
over the entire territory outlined by
the cities of Middelkerke, Thourout,
Thlelt, Roulers and Tpres.
Much of this region is covered with
stubble ' field, over which there is a
coating of Ice, making it almost im
passable for man or beast.
The German troops are living in the
ruins of two scores of villages and
small cities. They are becoming im
patient at the delay and are suffering
from the icy winds which penetrate the
wlndowless buildings in which they
General Attack Preferred.
They would prefer a general attack
to finish the battle, but any such sud
den movement Is prevented by the in
undation along their front. The water
covered territory is now crusted with
a thin coating of ice, which supports
large colonies of hungry, seagulls.
Thousands of lives have been lost in
this area without effecting any deci
sive changes. .
On the other side of the inundated
country, safely entrenched behind
frozen dikes, stand the British, Belgian
and French guns.
The soldiers there, on account of di
rect communication with France and
England, are well cared for, while the
Germans are handicapped by being
obliged to requisition supplies from
the devastated country where the pop
ulation is dependent upon American
Gasoline Running Low.
The automobile supply system of the
Germans is working less satisfactorily,
wing to the growing scarcity of gaso
line. The Germans are awaiting with great
hopes the arrival of engineers whose
duty It will be to find some means of
crossing the Inundated territory, but
the methods which are to be employed.
If decided upon, are being kept secret.
Meanwhile, a strong second line of
defense is being prepared by the Ger
mans. It runs from Courtral to Ingel
munster, Wardamme, Oostcamp, Bruges
and Blankenburghe. Trenches are be
ing constructed along this line and
cannon are being set up to make ready
for any eventuality.
