The trouble with most of the specula
tion regarding a military decision
springs from the hypnotic effect of
the familiar battle lines. The allied
task in the west has been in
the Germans out of France and liel-
Kiura, and the obstacle to that
achievement, In most mlndp.. la the
series of German lines. Actually, the

strongest enemy lines, Is the German
While we have been watching the
swaying lllndenburg line and waiting
for It to break, Marshal Foch has
boon trying to break the German
Prmy Instead of the Hlndenburg line.
His objective Is not Berlin or the
Uhlue, but the remaining organized
forces of the Germans. When they
are defeated, we will have victory,
not when the Hlndenburg line Is
broken or the Itlilne crossed, If eith
er takes place before the enemy Is
smashed. For this reason It Is better
to count prisoners and guns taken
and German divisions defeated than
to measure allied sirccess by ground
gained, be It ever so impressive

Of new American ships more than
2,000,000 deadweight tons have been
completed and delivered to the ship

total launching since January 1,
1918, has been 482 vessels of 2,392,
G92 deadweight tons. The United
States has more shipyards, more ship
workers and more ships under con
struction and Is building more ships
month by month than ajiy other coun
try, and it has not yet nearly reached
the limits of expansion In the Indus
try. Of foodstuffs, the American people
have produced this year enough for
all their needs, and with reasonable
economy and prevention of waste,
there will be 6,730,000 more tonB of
foodstuffs for shipment to the Ameri
can armies and the allies than were
sent abroad last year. With voluntary
co-operation among consumers In this
country and pooling of resources
among the allies, there should be suf
