'Allies Recbnnoiter and Test Out
German Defenses While
Teutons Assemble Forces
NEW YORK, February 14 - ( Asm iatcd Press) Not waiting
for the Cermans to start their long advertised drive on the
West front the French and the Hritish forces are showing aggres
! siveness in the shape of raids upon the enemies' positions with a
view to determine their strength and are keeping the Teutons so
busily engaged in meeting these raids that they have as yet been
enable to successfully launch an offensive.
While the engagements of Tuesday and yesterday, were hardly
of the magnitude to be called a great battle some of the raids were of
major importance and the official reports of both the French and the
3ritish tell of successes though Hcrlni official reports claim repulse
6f British attacks. Meantime the Germans continue the massing of
troops and the evident preparations for their offensives.
In the course of three raids on Tuesday between La Prete and
Jlomme Mort Woods French forces advanced to the German fourth
. line of defenses taking a number of prisoners from the ninth Bava
Han and the ninety-fourth I.andwehr divisions. German entangle
intents were destroyed in part by the barrage of the French artlller)
. 'nd in part by the infantry when the poilus reached the first posi
iion. This they penetrated and proceeded on despite the enemy's
shell curtain and this they did with negligible losses. Almost with
out casualties the French forces proceeded to destroy a number of
etiemy shelters and emplacements and they returned to their own
' lines with much valuable information as to the enemy positions.
During tins French attack the Germans attempted a raid on
Ijegneville in the same district but their attack was repulsed with
toeavy losses inflicted.
Another raid is reported from Paris in despatches which . said
' the French raided three systems of defenses along a tyelvc hundred
..meter front southwest of Butte Mesnit in the Champagne sector,
' captured a hundred prisoners and destroyed a number of shelters
and much war material.
v , In the five days of fighting, this same despatch reports, from Feb
ruary 5 to 10. the French destroyed twenty-eight German airplanes,
Heavy fighting on the road north of Lens and about Peronne if
reported in the olficial rejorts from Berlin which tell of strong recon
Itoitering expeditions having been sent out by the British and claimed
these were repulsed though British reports claim the information
sought was obtained.
? On the American front in the Lorraine sector the day was re
ported as the quietest since United States troops entered that sector.
, There was little artillery fire and a heavy rain greatly hampered any
plans for infantry raids as wfeft as bringing the slackening q! the big
jiin fire.' The whole sector' is a sea nf mud, despatches TronJ th
Amerk an front last nigh reported. There were no casualties in1 thai
fceetor in the past twenty-four hours.
. Meantime there is no halt in the plans of the Germans for the
launching of an early offensive. In their front lines, opposite to the
French front, their hard work continues where they had erected 3
formidable line of defenses in preparation for the winter.
In the rear, air scouts report, the concentration of Teuton force
progressing steadily.
Military authorities agree that the largest possible force of Ger
mans that can be gathered on the Western front and hurled against
the Allies is 2,340.000 men and claim that in man power and gun
power the Allies should be readily able to maintain their superiority.

AMSTKKDAM, January 31 'Aasoci
atcd l'ress i- Marriage and divoroe In
Turkey huve become snbject to much
stricter laws than heretofore, according
to information received here. A recent
enuctnient makes the civil ceremony
compulsory for Mohammedans, Chris
tlans am Jews alike. 1'riesta of nil
confessions ure no longer authorized
to solemnize a marriage which has not
been previously registered before a
Turkish magistrate.
Polygnmy is recognized by the new
law; hut should a .Moslem wish to take
nntn himself a second wife, he may no
longer divorce the first one upon the
second bride's demand, as has been
th" practise. I'nder the old Turkish
svstem, divorces were not difficult to
obtain, and wives had few righis. The
new law however, places the wife's
status on n much higher level. It pro
vides that a reconciliation shall first
be sought between the two parties for
which purpose a special tribunal with
.1 court of appeal has been instituted.
Westerners regard as one serious flaw
n the new law the fact that it fixes
