This is correct, writes William
but the situation can be brought out still more
strongly by stating the case in a positive instead
of a negative manner.

TCI ADYttTEtR'S SL'3-WELKLY
The Week In the War
GN tfie Western front there are growing vindi
cations that Vonc tremendous offensives may
soon be launched. Although the date reported
to have bjtn set for the commencement of th$
great German offensive has come and gone with
out any" serious operations by the enemy indica
tion l ave iiot been wanting that, preparations are
going steadily ahead back of the Teuton lines and
a stage of preparedness is being reached. ' , , ,
Meantime the Allies have not been idle. ' The
reports for the week have told bf numbers of raids
and the French and of some by the
. i .t'--
oermans. it nas, eviaentiy ueen tne purpose oi
the, Allies to "feel out" the eriemy'a'nd'to gain
valuable information of the strength of various
Back of the German lines it is known that targe
forces are being massed. This is reported by, the
air scouts, the value of whose information cannot
be over-estimated. In former days, such prepara
tions might have gone on to completion with al
most ho information reaching the other .side.
Modern" war methods give the Allies a, definite
idea of Teuton plans and a consequent opportu
nity to meet and contravene them.
Weather conditions will probably control the
fituation on, the Western nvnt: -The winier has
leen cold,.wet and rainy. Especially in Flanders
the ground has become thoroughly Saturated and
boggy so that a few days of d,ry weather which
give promise of ground upon which movements
of men and guns would be possible, are nullified
by a rain which in the autumn would have been
a small deterent io intended actions. .'
From the Italian front little news has been re
ceived. Such news as has come from Jhat theater
has indicated the position of the Italians and their
Allies to be stronger than ever before.
In the' American sector our khaki clad boys have
leen seeing some real warfare. It develops that
in this sector at points the trenches' are fright up
against "those of the Germans. As yet no con
certed attack has been made by either belligerent
and such infantry engagements as have occurred
have been' merely skirmishes or meetings of
patrols. ' Reports say the Americans chafe at not
being 'permitted to make raids on. the enemy in
retaliation for those which the enemy made upon
them and. fear "the people at home will consider
them a. useless lot unable to take care of them
selves." One captain said he had thoroughly re
cohnoitered the enemy positions and knew of at
least three different points where he could suc
cessfully raid the enemy and "get away with it"
lot -could not make such raids because of the im
plicit orders" forbidding them. -. .
In Great Britain the government party had some
troubles in the house of commons early in the
week which seem to have resulted largely to the
satisfaction of the premier. There is evidence
that the British people are in some numbers dis
appointed over results secured and in consequence
of this, it is surmised, a change in the staff has
been deemed best, thus bringing about the resig
nation of General Sir William B. Robertson. On
the face of it this seems of a similar nature to the
sentiment expressed in some sections of this coun
try following the investigation of the war depart
ment, especially on the subject of some of the
expressions and sentiments reported of Secretary
In congress there is still the possibility of a
clash between the administration and the majority
of the committee on military affairs and their sup
porters in the senate and the house. It has been
unfortunate that such controversy has taken the
turn it has because of the impressions which may
go out to the worldof a lack of harmony in war
affairs conduct. If it will check the injection of
partisan politics into the conduct of the war it
will have accomplished results which may well
counter ballance any ill effects.
In combatting the submarine menace the de
velopments have not been significant. There is
every indication the taking of destroyers for the
convoying of troop ships will open the way to
larger successes against the merchant marine by
the enemy undersea craft though they may neglect
such opiortunities in efforts to "get the Ameri
cans" en voyage.
In the north of Europe conditions remain un
settled. It is claimed by the Central Powers they
have a peace treaty with the Ukraine and Ru
mania is about to open up negotiations for peace
with probability of a treaty with that country.
Against the Bolshevik government Germany is
ready to take the aggressive and resume hostili
ties. It is reported Austria and Bulgaria will not
agree to this. Bulgaria is said to have already
-ntered upon a separate treaty with the Bolshiviki
and Austria is ready to grant more time in the
hope of an eventual agreement. If let alone Aus
tria might secure this by. waving indemnities and
territorial acquisitions. llowever. the Central
Powers achieve their main point in a Ukrainian
peace in that from that source they may be able
to secure greatly needed food supplies.
W hen Secretary Baker explained before the
senate military committee that certain things in
connection with American military preparations
had not been done because "the war was three
thousand miles away", he said something that he
will probably never be allowed to forget. Already
he has had reason to wish that before he dropped
his remark he himself had been at least three
thousand miles away from a reporter.

Roused By Talk
The camp garrison had an illuminat
ing talk a few days ago from a young
British sergeant who haa been "over
the top," had three years' experience in
France to his credit and a couple of
wounds thrown in for good measure.
The young fellow just in his twentina
gave a talk which aroused the men to
a feeling of enthusiasm and an uniler
staading as to why the government is
demanding such rigid attention to
training. The young sergeant told them
graphically of what they -would be
called upou to do in Europe and how
they would go over the top, use their
bayonets and haudle themaulves, juilg-
ing by his own experiences.
The garrison has a ateady diet of
bayonet practise. Jt ia bayonet work
almost every day and unusual prod
riency has been displayed in this form
of modern warfare. They have not yet
bad Jnetruction in the use of the gas
masks but this is coming soon as the
