Lemberg, along an eighteen mlle line
should Lemberg be retaken, Austria
would have reclaimed virtually entire
province of Galicia, almost all which
was in Russian hands during the ear

Petrograd expresses the opinion
that the Russian positions west ot
Lemberg, which are of great strength
on account of the character of the
country, can be defended successfully
against a frontal attack, and contends
that subsequently the efforts of the
Austrians and Germans will be con
centrated, on:,^k?ajtoagfg further
north from rh* Baa, whteh -ls thirty
five miles northeast of Lemberg.
According to the German war office,

Ships of the line, like tile Arizona,
are built to give and receive punish

has little in common with that ot the

largest ships to engage each other

sacrificed in the construction of the
battleships to weight of armor and
