Just as Rumors Persisted for Dayt

(By AMocUUd Proaa.)
LONDON. Jan. IL-Only a change
in tfae weather or entrance into the
war of Rumania or Italy, or both, ls
likely to bring about any marked
change in the. military situation In
Europe for some time to come.
The belief ls growing in countries
allied against Germany. Austria and
Turkey, that Rumania with her Weil
trained army ot not less than 400,000
men soon will throw herself into the
conflict. This, in effect, would link
Rumania with the extreme Russian
left now forcing its way into Hungary
Taking into consideration the Ser
vian and Montenegrins, tills would
form a line menacing AuatrlarHnn
gary along the entire southeastern
frontier from Rusais to the Adriatic.
Just as rumors persisted for days
erttfr to Turkey's entrance Int* th?
war so .ramara, now center about Ru
m eula And y^aty,TTf1'ilff'.ia^i ff irrg
ing among the general public in
France and England that deSnlte ac
t/on win not loni be delayed.
Meanwhile ths armies already In
the field la the east *nd weat remain
virtually ?esaiocana. in Alsace the j
French continue, by sapping and spo
radic charging, attempts to force their
way nearer the Rhine, but neither sids
claims any new progress. Tba Ger
mans threw heavy reinforcements Into
Alsace after the recent French ad
vance and apparently they have held
their ground, in view of the failure
of the French to consolidate positions
they took after much hard lighting.
With a comparativo lull tn thia quar
ter and artillery duela predominating
near the Belgian coast, fighting of a
desperate character has broken out In
the center, notably to the northeast
cf SclssvuS, which, through bombard
ments, seems likely to suffer the fate
of Rheims, and farther east, in the vi
cinity of Perthes and Beausejour,
from which points the Allies have
been trying to reach the important
railway to the north, the seizure of
whtcn would cut one of the German
main arteries of communication.
