London, Nov. 11. (By mail to Now

spirit with which tuoy bore their bur
dens and of tho unanimity with which
they supported all branches of their
This is true to a great extent, but
licit entirely so. There has been a min
ority which has criticized nnd found

able majority which has done tho same

The censorship, for instance, has been
roundly denounced as needlessly strict
unintelligent and pigheaded. It is ac
cused of suppressing news which would

IF ARMY IS FLANKED I
DISASTER IS CERTAIN
Safely of Army Depends
Largely (In Incompetence
of Russian Generals
(By Of. W. T. Mason, former London
correspondent for the United Press)
Now York, Nov. 23. General Von.
Hindenburg and his German followers
have now reached the most critical part
of their journey from the kaiser'
frontier to Warsaw.
They sre at Lowicz, planted straddle
wise across the railroad lines from the
northwest, which at this point begins
to converge with tho line from the
southwest or Warsaw. The straddle is?
IS miles long and the angle formed by
the two railroads extends to the east
ward for 45 miles before its apex i
reached at the metropolis of Russian
This engle must be held by the Ger
mans in order to command both rail
roads. Hitherto Von Hindenburg ha
been compelled to protect only tho Una
from the northwest. Now, however, he
must mako sure of the one from tha
southwest, too, or accept the grave risk
of being flanked.
This risk, oven with both railroads)
under German control, Is a constant sno.
Von Hindoiibnrg is truly "'living dan
geronsly," in full accord 'with Nlcfj
Taking Big Risks.
Besides tho railroad angle, there is
river angle alivo with perilous possi
bilities, into which tho Germans are
This river angle Is formed by th .
Vistula. After passing almost straight
across Russian Poland from the German
frontier, the stream bends sharply t
tho southward just before Warsaw isj '
reached, forming a right angle with it
self. Warsaw is on tho north and south leg
of the angle, nbout ten miles from tb
angle itself. On tho east and west leg,
also about ten miles from the bend, in
Novo Georgicvsk, a first class fortres
of great strength.
Into this man-, bntweon the towns el!
Warsaw and Novo Georgievsk, the Ger
mans must venture, if thoy are flunked
or caught in the roar, they will be driv
en between theso two fortresses and,
the Vistuln, with disaster inevitable.
To some extent offsetting this risk
is the fact that no Hussian commander
hns jot shown the capacity for directing
such a coup. Noverthloss, the fact re
mains that at no previous time since thor
war bngnn has there been so splendid an
opportunity for a devastating stroke m
Von Hindenburg is now offering to th
Outnumbered 2 to 1.
Indeed, neither in the east, nor th
west has a comniunder yot shown a bold
ness cnmpnruhlo with thut displayed by
Vim llinderbiirg in his present drive,
which involves dnngers which probably
noboily but he would risk.
Ilis'army is certainly outnumbered 3
to 1, if not morn heavily, and th
ubnmiiiable condition of the Russian,
roads makes it hard for it to profit by
its nnturnl mobility, through which 1
less difficult country, it would enjoy
considoruble advantngo over the Rus
sians. Von Hindenburg is of the type, how
ever, which reveals In such huiiilicnp.
His open criticism nf the kaiser'
strategy at army maneuvers during
ponce times was what caused him to be
on the retired list when the war
