MARSH IS PROVING BARRIER
THAT KEEPS GERMANS
AND RUSSIANS APART
COLD SNAP NEEDED
Prussians Are Malfing Every Ef
fort Possible to Moke Pinsle
(Hy Associated Press)
Flask, Russia, April ."..-The thirty
odd kilometers of the arc around
Pinsk have been fortified since the
Herman army took its position herc
last September as probably no other
( section nu any front, cast, west, or
sonthenst. The Prlpot swamp, which,
lon account of the mild winter, has
j former a natural barrier between the
German end Russian lines, has check
ed tmth thc German advance and the
Russian counterattacks. Hut the
Germans have realized thut a Kingle
cold snap might make the swamps
passable, and to forestall such a
thing, ?hoy have resorted to every
known evpedlent to make every foot
of their positions Impregnable.

Associated l'rc-ss correspondent, the
Prst newspaper man to visit Pinsk
since the Germans occupied it. has
just returned from a tour of the Pinsk
front, and although he has previously
visited tereral positions in both the
eastern und western theatres of war,
the fortress-like appearance of the
'pc nuihithir of Pinsk" impressed him
remarkably. The city ix Hanked on
thc south by thc swift running river
Pin i. I'cyond the river lies half a
mile of swamp and joins the Pinn.
Still further beyond lies more swamp
lands, which extend for several miles
to the mainland and the Russian nosi
tiun. To thc northward runs tho
river Jaesolda, flanked on 1 th sides
by miles of swamp lands, on either
edge of which He thc German and
Fortunately for ibo troops which
hold tlie northern section, the only
place where an offensive can reason
ably be expected, the swamp land
terminates in dunes which are easily
adapted for defensive purposes. Along
this northern section regiments of
cavalry have laboriously dug them
selves Into the ground end have per
fected every means to make it impos
sible for 'tho Russians to break
The defense scheme ls a series of
"Stuotzpunkto" or supporting points.
Ai ono place tho supporting points is
a villa,' completely surrounded ,'by
trenches, shelters and entanglements.
At nnothcr It ls a sort of fort built in
to the earth, with subterranean pas
t-ages, protected by sand bags, earth
and wood, and ringed about with hun
dreds of thousands of running feet
of barbed wire. Each supporting
point is not over 500 yards distant
from some other, and they are con
nected by wire t nlarfglcments from
100 to 120 feet in width.
Tho cavalry regiments that are
guarding the northern section are
among the finest in the German army.
Their officers include some of the
greatest nobles in the empire whose
names arc known all over the world.
For almost six months now they have
lain in their position, living alternate
ly in underground shelters and in the
great villa that stands on an eleva
tion plainly In view of the Russian
"How is it," asked the correspond
ent of Count S-, cousin of a fa
mous German naval commander and
chief of the brigade, "(hat the Rus
sians do not shoot your villa to
pieces? Tho nearest' Russian artil
lery position isn't moro than six kil
The Count laughed. "There seems
to bo ari unwritten and unspoken
agreement that " we wont touch the
Russian, headquarters if they .1 ave
ours alone. They have had ample evi
dence of the accuracy of our guna
and know that we could demolish
their villa if wo wanted to." .
Thanks to the fact that there is an
at.nost unlimited quantity of wood on
hand, for Pinsk in peace-times is one
of thc timber centers of Russia, the
Germans have been able to build out
across the swamps and In this way to
establish far-flung outposts on every
burnock of ground that is large, enough
to bear a blockhouse.
Paralleling tho Strumen half a mlle
to the/ south ls a narrow, muddy dike
or dam that was built some time ago
by tho Russians, partly to check the
swamp waters, and partly as a pros
pective railroad bcd. This dam ? ex

With tho help of wooden stagings

are veritable arsenals. Each . is
