balance beforo uncovering his major strategical scheme. A glance at the map will show that the only part of the British front from Ypres to the Somme which has not changed since the great offensive move? ment began on March 21 is that be? tween Givenchv and Arleux. Along these twelve nines run Vimy Ridge and the Lens-Loos Hohenxollern redoubt, exceedingly strong positions, which were won by the British at great cost. The enemy wants Arras and wants it so badly that he may even make a heavy drive between Givenchv and Boisleux, southeast of Arras. A suc? cessful drive by the Germans, here would force the British to evacuate Bethune and Arras, and at the same time it would relieve the right flank of the German armies which are oper? ating on the front at Amiens. That is tho view o:f those who expect a resumption of activities on the south? ern battle,ront. Th?iy do not believe that Lodendorff bus weakened his forces on tho Somme to help the army operating on the Lys, and, in fact, they think that the southern armies have been reinforced during the pause since the first week in April. Across tho devastated plains of Picardy the Germans nave extended many miles of light railways and have built new roads, u great army of labor? ers being employed at this work for the last three weeks. The armies of Boehm, Von der Muritz and Hutier probably will be colled upon for heavy work in tho next phase. If Boehm's forces como into action the battiefront will be length? ened until it reaches utmost to Rheims. For three weeks Kheims has been al? most smothered with shells, Such ac? tivity usually points to bigger things. On the other hand, some critics be? lieve that the enemy will persist in his northern campaign just as he did after iho i'.VMt check nt Verdun. They rea? son that tho German command is cut to crush the British army and that Ludenclorff will gradually concentrate his main force in front or Haig's army. 'Ihey think that he will bo quite satis tied with ?*low progress in tho north, because ev.-ry success there brings with It a greater strategic prize. Provided the weather continues fair, this week should disclose more of tho enemy's plans. No subject is of m'ire Interest to the Gorman military critics than the Allied reserves. They treat the ouestion in great detail, and al? though most of them profess indiffer? ence they exhibit a real anxiety. Germany Expects Decision Early in May, Captives Hint OTTAWA, April 22.?Router's cor? respondent at British headquarters in France says tho Germans continue to mass troops on the Bailloul-Neuve Eglise line und north around Dernan court. He adds that, according to Ger? man prisoners, leaves of absence will be resumed in tho German army early in May. "Such action," the dispatch says, "suggests the enemy anticipates a de? cision or the abandonment of the of fensive by then." The lull In the fighting in France is not expected to last long, notwith? standing tho inclemency of the weather, with wind and rain, says an? other Reuters dispatch. "Tho Germans are licking their hurts after their recent thrashing and evi? dently do not mean to reattack until they are ready to do so on a great seule," the message addu. "They aro being openly und enormously raiu forced, but tho Allies havo also strengthened their forces and it Is not lil.ely that tho next thrust will be any more effective in achieving a decision than that of a month ago, when the German people were told to expect a speedy triumph. "The expectation on this side, in? deed, is that the battle muy lust well through the summer. For one thing, it will henccjforth bo impossible for the enemy to benefit by a strategic surprise similar to that of Murch 21, when they uttacked on a front of fiTty miles. "All the enemy's onslaughts hitherto have failed to attain their cbject, owing to tho impossibility of using reserves, and resulted in the bottling up of a million and a half of men in the tri? angle of Haaebrouck, Amiens and Noyon. These troops, originally sup? plied with a week's rations, are virtu? ally starving in u devaotated region which is difficult to revlctual. as tho ground is marshy and pitted with shell holes constantly under lire. "There is a greut concentration of shell fire at Mount Kemme', which is already stripped of trees. This is prob? ably the act-no of the next big attack. "Details of the Belgian success of tho 17th of April rhow that it was mont brilliant und also important in result?, for it played a part in foiling th?* at? tempt to cut off the expected British retreat from the Ypres Baiient." British Repulse Strong Attack on Front Above Albert (By The Aiso-lated I'rei?) WITH THE BBRITISH ARMY IN FRANCE, April 22. Taking advantage of the moonlight, the Germans at 10 o'clock last night made a strong but unsuccessful attack against the British positions north ol Aveiuy wood, on the front above Albert. Heavy fighting continued until 4 o'clock this morn? ing. Tho Germans appear to have taken one Britmh outpo*t? but to huve lost ground themselves elsewhere in the wood.

Hunter "Backs Against Wall" Shows Need of Men Tells Local Toronto Uni? versity Club War Won't Be Won in France Great Britain has no reserve army j to send to France; the 7,500,000 men ' enrolled by her since the beginning of 1 the war have fought and died on thirty ! seven fronts, and when it is said that i she has her 'back against the wall' it ? means that." These statements made j by Lieutenant Colonel F. Fraser Hun ! ter, D. S. 0., British PrQYQSt Marshal in the United States, before members j of the University of Toronto Club creat | ed a sensation last night at the Yale i Club where the Toronto men were gath? ered for their annual dinner. "Wo simply haven't got the men or we wouldn't say our backs are against the wall," said Colonel Hunter. "We bend but never break, but for God's sake get there before we die." Tho much heralded army of "a mill? ion British reserves" is nothing but a "newspaper army," Colonel Hunter de? clared. Every available British sol? dier has been utilized in India, China, Somaliland, Turkey, Persia, South Af? rica, and in more than a score of other places which, there being Germans in? trenched, are "just as truly battle fronts as Northern France," he pointed . out. j France Not Only Front ? "England is actually fighting a world j war on no less tnan thirty-seven tronts," he continued. "You who sing j 'Over There* and such songs seem to feel that France is the only front. "The war may be lost in France, it is true. But it. may not be won in Fiance. And while you are winning 'over there' Germany is quietly marching over this world?with the Russians, with the Turks, with whoever will go with her. And when you're done with your shindy over in France Germany will be a world power. "You people with the black coats are the real general staff of the armie?. j You don't want to hear me talk unles? I can give you some truths. There is altogether too much talk anyway. Sol? diers don't want to hear about liberty and democracy; they want to know their task and get at it. I talk to you | in the hope that you can influence Lon- j don.andif Qttoawa and Washington to j do something. ' "Get them to do something in Rus- ; sia. One year ago 15,000,000 of the I finest soldiers in the world were fight? ing for the Allies?the Russians. Don't forget the maximum effort of Germany for the first years of the war was di? rt cted against the Russian front. Now ? there are 2,000,000 Russian graves along what used to be that front. But ; as a result the British took Bagdad, ! and German influence has disappeared from Persia and Afghanistan all on account of the Russians. "That ought to give you a better idea of the Russians than that they are mere cowards. It should stop you throwing mud at them, even though j they are now Bolsheviks. They went out of the war because they were boat- . j en?beaten by a superior military I power. I have traveled Rusia from I one end to another and fought with j its people, and I know the one thing ! they hate is the thought of German domination. They have their hands out | to us and we should do something be- i fore Germany does." Must Sink Personal Ambitions j The difficulties encountered by Great j Britain in repelling the German in- j fluerico and arms in Singapore, the ''? Cameroon Islands, India and South At- ' rica were recounted by Colonel Hun- ? ter. Few persons in America, he said, ? r??alize that Great Britain at one time had more than 1,000,000 men in South* ? Africa. In Mesopotamia, he said, one of the greatest obstacles to successful j operations was personal ambition on i the part of military officials. "If per-son?l ambition is allowed to enter into this war we ought to lose i it, and we will," he declared. "A short tim<3 ago I visited Ottawa, and, as a soldier, I was perfectly disgusted with what I found. For one thing, there seemed to br; not one army, but three armies, each with its particular view. Ono wanted, to go to France #nd the others had their particular wants, I forget what." Colonel Hunter concluded with an appeal to his hearers not to subscribo to "newspaper campaigns'' for counter offensive actions in Franco at this time. "There are not enough men to win in France now, that is the plain fact," he said. "Get it into your heads that Germany must be stopped everywhere ?not only in France. Let's stop hrr in Russia. Force action in Washing? ton, London and Ottawa, and let's stop this damn talk about Russian treach? ery." Sir Robert Falconer, president of the club, said that Canada is supplying more than 40 per cent of the men for the Royal Flying Corps. Toronto Uni? versity men who have entered the ??or- i vice number 4,500, he said, and of this number :!7r? have been killed, J. A. Haskell, formerly of the Du Pont Powder Company, but now en? gaged in aviation motor production for the government, said that Liberty mo- ? tor production would begin in quantity during the auinmer. The ordnance de? partment this week, he also declared, would test a new machine gun which contains only l'A pieces instead of the 160 component part? of the Browning gun.

In addition, Paris says there was fighting along the whole line. Military Comment By William L. McPherson Yesterday was another day of comparative quiet on the Western front. More local activity was reported in the neighborhood of Lens and Albert than further north in the Lys Valley salient. German preparations for another attack in force are still under way. The Allies must stand and wait, and they can fully afford to do so. It is well to remember that the initiative cannot pass from one side to the other in the midst of a great military operation like that now under way in France and Belgium. Conditions forbid it. They deter? mine in advance which side is to assume and retain the defensive. Sound Allied policy requires the avoidance of a bid for a decision until the natural preponderance of the Entente in man power can be brought to bear. France, Great Britain and Italy must wait until America enters the war on a scale corresponding in some degree to her military resources. Germany, on the other hand, has elected to take advantage of the temporary equalization of her strength on the West front with the strength of the Allies. She wants to reap the advantages of the Rus? sian collapse. It is a gamble for her?a gamble dictated by political as well as by military considerations. The Allies would play into Ger? many's hand by rashly risking a counter offensive equal in scope to Hindenburg's present offensive. Thsy are limited by the requirements of their situation to local counter blows?to attacks which, however heavily delivered, will really constitute only an offensive-defensive. For the first time ,in weeks brisk lighting was reported yesterday all along the Sal?nica front. The Allies -were probably making a demon? stration there in order to deter Bulgaria from sending troops to France or Italy. The German High Command has had agents in Sofia for some days past, who are urging Ferdinand to help the Germans out in l'icardy and Flanders?possibly by replacing on the Piave line German divisions which have been hurried north. One such division was identified the ether day in the Somme region by the French Intelligence Department. Ferdinand is a very selfish and sparing monarch. He will doubtless welcome an excuse to keep his armies at home?all the more so since he is reported to be greatly annoyed by the evident purpose of Germany and Austria-Hungary to turn Bessarabia over to Rumania as a com? pensation for the loss of the Dobrudja. Title to the Dobrudja, under the treaty whiph von K?hlmann and von Czernin recently made with Rumania, rests with the Quadruple Alliance, and not with Bulgaria. ; This is another grievance which the crafty Czar of the Bulgarians \ cherishes. The Allied army in Macedonia has been, on the whole, a non-pro j ductive investment. Its role has been a negative one?to .defend Greece and to contain in the Balkans a certain number of Bulgarian and Turkish army corps. It may be of service in the present crisis in the West if it engages in demonstrations more or less threatening, which will prevent the stripping of this front for Hindenburg's benefit. The Official Statements LONDON, April 22 ?-Field Marshal Haig's reports from head? quarters in France to-day said: NIGHT Hostile raids attempted early this morning south of the Somme, in the neighborhood of Ilamel, and south of La Bass?e Canal, opposite Cambrin, were repulsed. Northwest of Festubert, under cover of the bombardment reported this evening, the enemy succeeded in capturing an advanced post, which had already changed hands several times during the recent fighting. As a result of another successful minor operation which we carried out in the Robecq sector, we advanced our line slightly and cupturod sixty-eight prisoners. Bodies of hostile infantry assembled in this neigh? borhood wore engaged by our artillery. UAY--Early in the night a strong local attack, accompanied by heavy shelling, was made by the enemy against our positions in the neighbor? hood of Mesnil, north of Albert. After sharp fighting, in the course of which the enemy succeeded in capturing one of our advanced posts, the attack was repulsed. We improved our positions slightly during the night in the Villers-Bretonneux, Albert and Robecq sectors. A number of successful raids wera carried out by us at different points south and north of Lens, resulting in the capture of prisoners and machine guns. There has been considerable artillery activity on both sides on dif? ferent sectors of the British front. The enemy's shelling has been directod chiefly against our positions astride the Somme and Ancre rivers, in the Lens sector, in tho neighborhood of Festubert, and in the Nieppe Forest. Artillery Very Active, Paris Reports PARIS, April 22.?The War Office announcements to-day said: NIGHT There is nothing to report to-day except quito pronounced artillery activity in the region of Montdidier and Noyon. On April 20 and 2J four Gorman airplanes and two captivo balloons were destroyed by our pilots, and a fifth was brought down by our in? fantry lire. Sixteen enemy machines fell inside their own lines badly damaged after aerial engagements. In the same period our bombing airplanes carried out numerous sorties. Forty-nine thousand kilos of projectiles wore dropped on rail? way stations, cantonments and enemy aviation grounds in the region of St. Quentin, Jassy, Chaulnes, Roye, Ham, Guiscard and Asfeld. Two fire? broke out, in the Chaulnes station and the Asfeld station. A munitions depot east of Guiscard was exploded. DAY A German raid last night east of the Avre, in tho region of Thon nes, was repulsed. Wo took prisoners. Another German raid eii3t of Rheims gained no greater success. Active artillery fighting continued i nt different points on the front. ! Prevented British Crossing Canal, Berlin Reports BERLIN, April 22.?The official communications from general head- j quart its to-day said: DAY On tho battle-front? there were local infantry operations. Enomy attempts to advance across La Bass?e Canal to the northwest of Bethuno failed under our fire. North of Albert we captured eighty-eight British, including two of? ficers, and took twenty-two mino throwers and n few machino guns. Tho artillery buttle revived only In a few sectors. On the rest of the front tho lighting activity remained within mod?rate bounds, Southwest of Altkirch (AUuce), we took some prisoners during,,? reconnoitring ad? vance. Allies Open Offensive on Balkan Front 4 Heavy Fighting Reported; Troops of Many Na? tions Involved To Prevent Bu?gar Aid for Ludendorff British and Serbians Score Gains; Italians Re? pulse Attack LONDON, April 22.?Great fighting activity has begun on all sectors of the Balkan front, it was officially an? nounced in Taris to-day. British, French, Serbian and Italian troops have engaged in lively clashes with the en? emy, in which the advantage has rested with the Allies. Apparently the forces of many races facing the Germans, Austrians, Turks and Bulgarians in a great semi-circle sweeping from the Adriatic to the ?Egean have begun a general attack with the object of forcing the enemy to maintain his forces at full strength and to prevent withdrawals to rein? force the Teuton armies in France and Belgium. Recently there have been intimations that Bulgarian troops soon would reach the Western theatre of war in large ? numbers. Indeed, some of them, ac ! cording to German official announce ! ment, are already there, constituting ; with the Austro-Hungarlans a reserve army. To Hold Up Bulgar Aid The Kaiser not long ago went to Bu? charest with various German digni? taries, ostensibly to settle certain Bal? kan questions, but really, it was re? ported from Switzerland, to demand greater aid in the west from Bulgaria. The present Allied demonstration on the Balkan front is probably a kind of holding action to prevent the Bulga? rian Czar from giving promised as? sistance to his fellow autocrat. An in? dication that it was coming was re? cently disclosed in a heavy raid, dur? ing which a number of Bulgarian vil? lages were occupied. Gains by Serbians The Paris communication says that Serbians near Vetrenik captured an "important enemy work" and held, it against violent enemy counter attacks. The British brought 'jack pi isoners south of Doiran. The enemy assaulted Italian ad? vanced posts in the Italian sector, but without success, according to the French statement. A communique is? sued in Rome to-day said that Italian troops at dawn Saturday inflicted se? vere losses on' German advanced posts, wiping out one of them. c ????-?. Pershing Tells Of Casualties In Toul Fight Continued from img? 1 who participated in the battle, show that the Americans stuck to their guns while the Germans wore placing liquid fire, gas and almost every other con? ceivable device of frightfulness on them. One of them, who lay wounded in an American hospital to-day, kept his machine gun going after the chief gunner had been killed, two feet away, and he himself had been wounded, thus protecting a turn in the road known as dead man's curve, over which some of the American couriers passed in the face of a concentrated enemy fire. That the enemy's losses were so se? vere that he changed his mind and was cured of his beliof that it was going to be a walk over, was indicated by his feeble artillery fire yesterday and to-day. Despite the driving rain, how? ever, the American artillery showed signs of animated activity. The of? ficers and men were in fine spirit, even the wounded laughing and joking. Great Preparations Made for Attack On Pershing's Men iliy Tlie AMOoUtert 1'fcas) WITH THE FRENCH ARMY IN FRANCE, Sunday, April 21.?When an entire regiment, reinforced by storm troops, attacked the sector held by American troops neur Seicheprey, Gen? eral Pershing's men fought the most ! serious engagement they have as yet i experienced. The attack was made by a considerable force, and indications I show that important preparations were made for it. Unusual precautions were immedi? ately tulun along the whole sector of the front as soon as tho Gorman inten? tion was known. An extremely heavy hostile bombardment with poison gas shells opened in the night and lasted until 5 o'clock in tho morning. At that hour tho enemy infantry dashed for-! ward, preceded by storm troops which j had been brought to the scene especial-1 ly for the attack after preliminary ! training on ground similar to the sector held by the American troops. The assault was over a line 2,000 yards in length, and at several placea the enemy succeeded in entering the American lines. They even entered and occupied Seicheprey, where the Ameri? cans holding that position offered the most stubborn defence. Without a mo? ment's delay, following their retire? ment at Seicheprey, the. -Americans or? ganized, with the French, a counter at? tack, which was carried out brilliantly, driving the Germans out of the village and taking a number o? prisoners. The lighting did not cease until lute in the afternoon. The severest encounters occurred in Renncre3 Wood, where the Germans had taken a firm hold at diuvn despite the most strenuous defence by small bodies of Americans stationed there. The French and American troops joined in the counter attack on this section of the line, eventually succeeding in oust? ing the enemy. The amalgamated troops worked in closest cooperation and by the end of the day were able to score a complete victory nr.d restore their lines as they were before the engagement. In this vicinity many prisoners fell into the hands of the. Allies, while the barbed wire aVid shell-pitted ground was cov? ered with German corpses. Two German Fliers Downed by U. S. Gunners at Toul Illy The Ai.scv.ir.tctl Pro?**] WITH THE AMERICAN ARMY IN ; FRANCE, April 21,?Two low-flying | German airplanes were brought down i Saturday by American machine gun | ners during the German attack i and I about Seicheprey, northwest of Toul. ! The machine gunnel.; who bagged the '? Germans had been ordered to retire, but they remained in their position 1 and fought effectively against the i enemy aviators. ; During the engagement the Germans : concentrated 'their artillery lire on the American telephone and telegraph j wires, which were cut many times. | Couriers were forced to pass through ! two or three barrages in order to main : tain communication. In the meantime ? the men of the signal corps, many of them smoking Cigarettes in face of a heavy bombardment, restored the ? wires almost as fast as the enemy shells disrupted them. Ambulance men ventured into No ? Man's Land during the thick of the 1 light and did heroic work in gathering ' up wounded. One German, who had offered to surrender, attempted to explode a bomb on the ground as three | Americans approached him. Another ; soldier, however, discovered the trick ' and hurled a grenade at the German. One of tho German's legs was blown off, and he died later, a prisoner of the men he attempted to blow up. A village near the front lines which [ the'correspondent visited to-day tells a mute tais of Saturday's fighting. There are huge shell holes in the s'treets, and parts of the church and other buildings have been blown off. The enemy lire became so hot here that Salvation Army girls, who had been serving coffee and doughnuts to the Americans, were forced to leave. The girls protested, saying they were not afraid of the Germans, and wanted to stay in their dugout, but the officers did not wish to take the responsibility. As they left, the girls were cheered by soldiers returning from the front lines. '"We're Just Beginning" "Tell them back home that we are just beginning," said a lad, who Mas in the thick of the fight, his back now almost perforated with shrapnel. "It was fine to see our men go at the Huns. All of us who thought baseball was the great American game have changed our minds. There is only one j game to keep the American flag flying J ?that is, kill the Huns. 1 got several before they got me." The other men in the hospital were of the same spirit, while in a nearby ward was a wounded German prisoner, who, it develops, was spared after he had thrown up his hands, at the same time having concealed bombs with which he intended to kill Americans. I This fellow in sulky manner waved off the American guard with one hand. A nurse said he had given more trouble than all the Americans combined. There appears little doubt that the Germans thought they would go through the American line, as they said once they would go through "Great Britain's contemptible little army." The enemy made another attempt at a line occupied by the American troops on the right bank of the Meuse soon after the uttack near Seicheprey. Sixty of tho enemy started u raid, but were repulsed by a heavy fire. Some of the Germans reached the American entanglements and were left dead, hanging to the wire. But the enemy carried o?r all his wounded. An American raid against the enemy line near by was carried out about the same time, and one of the raiding force was brought back dead and one wounded.
