Force of Offensive Is Momen
tarily Expended and Delay Is
Enabling Strengthenina For
Further Efforts
Local Engagements and Raids
, Are Generally To Advantage of
' ' Allies Ostend l Shelled and
Heavily Damaged
ASHINi.toX, May 18
(Associated Tress) Al
though the momentum of the
German offensive has for the time
being been spent it is quite evi
dent that the enemy is going
ahead with preparations for its
resumption upon a large scale.
' New reserves, fresh troops, guns
and ammunition are being
brought up evidently for the pur
pose of another effort to smash
through to the" objectives which
they have heretofore . sought to
reach. This isr told in the sum
mary issued by the British gen
eral staff and cabled from Lon
don last night.
i During the past week the
Western front has been compara
tively qHiet except for local en
gagements and raids in which the
AfHes have generally had the ad
vantage. It was evident that the
momentum of the great offensive
had been expended but it was
equally evident that the Germans
were preparing for a great effort.
The longer they can wait to do
this the more they will have avail
able for such an offensive and
.they would soon be able to re
sume on almost the same basis
as previously.
, The enertiy cannot delay too
long, for American troops are
now coming in faster. New
American army troops have arriv
ed within the zone occupied by
the British forces in Northern
France where they are complet
ing their training with the troops
that are blocking off the enemy
from advance upon the Channel
ports. These troops have not
.been detached from the general
forces of General Pershing but
are a part of the new movement
of troops which the Hritish pre
mier, Lloyd George, alhwleil to in
his forecast in which he said the
Americans were arriving in ever
jrreater numbers.
General Haig yesterday con
ducted successful raids in the
Iieaumont-1 lamel neighborhood
in which he took a few prisoners.
Hismen also rushed a post north
of Merris where they destroyed
the garrison. With these excep
tions no infantry engagements
were rejorted in the Hritish com
munique ol last night.
Increased violence in the Ger
man artillery fire which may pre
sage a resumption of the offen
sive in the near future is reorted
from various sectors of the Bri
tish front. There appeared to be
a concentration of the enemy's
gunfire on a small sector between
I abasee and limeville and in
creased shelling was noted from
I oconhingen along the western
. fide of the Flanders salient as
tvell as along its northern side.

Grain Supplies Are Not Coming In
From i Nations On Which
Germany Forced Treaties
AMSTERDAM, May 18 (Assoc iated
Prei Great disappointment is . felt
in Germany at the failure to secure
grain from Russia, the Ukraine and) Ru
mania in the quantities expected' and
which the people were led to believe
would rome following the completion. of
peaee negotiations.
Thus Jar only JS7 tons or grain naa
Seen brought into Germany from the
Ukraine, it is announced by the tier-
. man patters and this is less than one I
fifteenth of what Germany should have
I received by this time.
By reason of the failure to seenre
breadstuffs from the countries with
which the Central Powers hava com
pleted peace treaties the shortage of
grain has become more acute than had
been ei)vte.l and it has been found
necessary to further cut down the daily
bread ration for the civilians, reducing
; it one fifth. While until now it has
j been H) grams per capita daily this is
reduced by the new rationing drder. to
1H0 gramH. The old ration was equiva
lent to a fraction more than seven
ounces daily and the new one is a shade
lees than five and two tbir.ls ounces.
The public is better at this further
curtailment of their food allowance
when, other rations are almost equally
scarce. Loud complaint is voiced by
the common people.
