";t ot putting the allies as in,,,!,
the i.letcnsive as he has been.
The allies have been ps,ed far from
he derma,, lines of communication and
tho (.ciniaii battle front has been ex
tended sixty miles, from the region of
Arras to Osteml, t protect an nddi
lonal 3HIHI square miles f comiuered

This situation is puzzling.
If the allies really outnumber the
eniiaii", why are the (Ioniums
cntlv able to make greater impres
sion than the allies '.
3 lie mii-t ol, inns answer In thl. mu.a.
lion is that the I- rem h hii v.. .,( .....

ics in military supplies revealed Inst

A second iiuswer may be that the
I'l-ciuh general stalf lias refused to
sanction the enormous loss of life thai
il front it 1 attack on the strong (leiniau
positions would entail. Tile llcioiiiii.
themselves have til.ini, limed the muss
tactics they used during their rush
through Itclgiuin and France towards
I'aris, ami a policy of numerous minor
attacks has perhaps been inloptml bv
llcneinl ilol'lre as more liouiaiie, though
also more expensive of time.
A third possible alternative Is thiiT
I lie allies are not really in mm h actual
iiinnerii nl snpciiorit.v ill the north but
bavii I n roiiceiitiating fr a new of
fensive against the llcniiuii euticiichcd
camp of Mct,
It would be in keeping with the ninny
unprecedented developments of the
present war if the allies should gain n
uciory against the permanent loitlll
cations of Mel while failing to dis
lodge the enemy fiom his temporary
field rhelters elsewhere.
Probably nil three ot these hypothe
ses plays pint In the riddle f the
(icrnil.lis ability to hold off the allies,
Mot that the game can be continue, I
Indefinitely is most Improbable, New
developments must be looked for soon,
