WOUNDS EASILY KILL POORLY FED HUNS Escaped French Prisoners Report Many Deaths in Hospitals. Lack of food and clothing in the German armies is responsible for their tremendous casualty list?, according to the story of Georgeg Balmat and George? Arnaud, two French soldier? belonging to the 6th Company of the :.-'d Battalion of Alpin? Light Infan try. They were prisoners in the hands of th? Germans for several days but escaped to their own lines. Their report h?? Just been received at the French War Mission here. They were used st Oulchy to bury the dead from the hospitals there. They report that while there were about an equal number of French and '??man wounded In the hospitals, and the natural presumption would be tha: the Huns would make a greater effort I to save their own men. yet there were I between 3d and w bodies of German I soldier? for burial each day and only I a f?w French. The two renchraen were told by a German stretcher bearer that the ? French wer? well noiirlened ?nd coa ' scquehtly robust and so were ?ble to | bear the ??Derations n. eawary ?nd i r?lly to quick recoveries, but th?t ? the Germans were In such a state of | physical exhaustion from malnutri tion and improper clothing that they were unable to resist even minor operations.

GERMAN NAVAL DRIVE DUE, ACTIVITY WOULD INDICATE Dash Into North Sea in Full Force, Now Aug mented by Power of Russian Dreadnoughts Thought Interpretation of Tirpitz's Orders. London. July lt.?Th? Oermana are believed to be about to ?tart their great naval dash into the North Sea. The Kaiser's fleet, which has been bottled up In the Kiel Canal and th? Baltic Sea for thr?? years, now re-enforced by the ?hip? taken from Russia, la known to be In readlnea? for a' supreme test with the Brit ish-American fleet. Extraordinary activity In the Ger raan naval baa?? and tb? recalling of all the German naval officer? to tbetr ?hipa recently, together with ?n official telegram which haa been spread about Oerm?ny. saying the admiralty ls considering a naval offensive, lend credence to the be lief that the greatest sea battle of tha war is Imminent.
