LONDON, Oct. 38,
TImj beginning of the ISth week of the
war finds the Allies and the Germans still
locked In a furious struggle in the west
ern theatre of war.
The greatest Interest now centres In the
fighting in the northern sphere, around
Arras, Lille and over tho Nieuport-Dlx-mnde-Roulers
line In Belgium. The time
ly arrival of reinforcements and big guns
saved the Germans In that region Just
as their lines had begun to waver beneath
the vigorous assaults of the French, Brit
ish and Belgians.
The Germans have been ablo to achieve
successes near IJllo, France, and on the i
Tser In Belgium. Dlxmude. Belgium
has been badly damaged by artillery Are
and flames set by shells.
The following description of fighting
and havoo In northwestern Belgium has
been telegraphed by a correspondent of
the Dally Telegraph, who visited the
Dlxmude battlefield last Wednesday in
company with a son of tho Belgian War
Minister, 31. De Broqueville:
"No pen could do Justlco to the grandeur
and horror of the scene. As far as the
eye could carry nothing could bo seen i
but burning villages and bursting shells, i
I realized for the first time how com-
pletely the motor has revolutionized war
far and how every other factor Is
dominated by tho presence or absence of
this method of transportation. j
"Every road to tho front was packed
with cars. They formed an ever-rolling, I
endless stream, going and returning. In
every village hundreds of private car3
were parked under the control of medical
officers, waiting to carry the wounded to
field hospitals. ,
"On tho firing line a terrible seine pre.
seated Itself. Thij shell fire from tha
German batteries was so severe that the
Belgian soldiers and French and British
marines were literally blown out of their
dug-outs and sent scattering to cover.
Along crowded roadways and across shell
torn fields knots of peasants old men,
women and children could be seen in
