GERMANS RETREAT TO VICTORY
SAYS KAISER OFFICIAL
Berlin, via Wireless, March 21.
Germany is retreating to victory; an
other master stroke has been achiev
ed by Field Marshal Von Hinden
burg and the entente's plans for a
great spring .offensive have been de
stroyed. This, in brief, is official explana
tion given to' Germany's retirement
on western front.
Germans have made whole coun
try between old line and new a wil
derness. German forces will be entrenched
in strongest possible defenses, pro- i
tected by forests of barbed wire en
tanglements. Free fire zone in front
will give clear view of enemy. Guns
have been carefully ranged. Enemy
must come up, must dig itself in,
must arrange transport of millions of
tons of amunition, food and supplies
over the wilderness left by the Ger
mans. Allies will face German forces pre
pared for every contingency and pro
tected as an army was never protect
Germany is retreating to victory
because her armies are taking their
places in new positions, long prepar
ed. These positions embody newest
lessons of the war. They will force,
enemy to learn their trade all over
again. They may affect transforma
tion of entire character of the war.
London. In several places today
fighting is within two or three miles
of the "Hindenburg line" as experts
here have picked it out. French are
nearest German permanent defenses.
British have made haste more slow
ly, preferring to rebuild destroyed
country over which they advance.
Germany's new line, officials here
say, lies in position where engineers
and strategical experts have chosen
every feature of topography as an
Ay this change comes at point
where Germany's enemies had plan
ned a new spring offensive. The
kaiser's forces have run away to specially-prepared
offensive hues, which
the allies will now be under disad
vantage to attack.
Tokio. Prohibition against publi
cation of news of arrival and depart
ure of Japanese merchantmen sailing
in Pacific and Indian oceans was an
nounced by government today.
- Washington. Reports that allies
have partially lifted their blockade of
Greece .interpreted as' admission of
their failure to unseat King Constan
tine In favor of Venizekw' revolu
tionary government. Greecian situ
ation regarded as another blunder of
allies' Balkah diplomacy. '
