GERMAN MORALE BROKEN
IT IS ADMITTED
With th American army on th
Vesle, Aug. 28. German soldiers be
lieve that Germany ia not planning
any mora offensive becaus of the
man-power shortage according to en
of party of seven of a German pa
trol captured by the American early
Sunday, east of Flames. The soldier
who wss a former bank employe and
the owner of a Berlin roataurant.
aaid th soldiers o longer had any
enthusiasm for war. Moat of those
with whom he came-in contact believ.
ed the war would end soon.
The prisoner had been fighting
three years and declared he waa thor
oughly tired of it He aaid the
soldier understood that th German
losses during th recent allied offen
sives had been very great. The re
ports were credited by the soldiers
and were having a demoralising ef
fect. He aaid he knew ef one divis
ion of 15,000 which had been reduc
ed to lesa than 1,000. He did not
know what became of the men.
Tlenty of Germans, he ftddej,
would desert and surrender if given
the opportunity. Many of them are
constantly watching for a chance to
givea themselves up to the Ameri
cana. Trouble haa been threatened
in the German munition plant and
th army leader were tightening eon
ditiona there. He aaid thn rules gov.
rninir munition worker wer more
strict now thaa ever.
G'rmany, he aaid, haa plenty of
aiuunition, but th maa-powr ques
tion and th actual entry of Amer
ican troop into th fighting ar wor
rying th military leader.
