3C were In Russia. Today Germany
has no divisions on the Western front,
it the Italian battle line ia not In
cluded In that definition. Austria had
79 divisions last year. Now she has
only 77. having been forced to con
solidate some divisions.
Haa Power to Wane.
Germany's leaders have refuaed as
long as possible to lessen the number
of divisions, since war la fought today
with divisions and not with numbers
of men. Originally Germany had about
17.000 men to a division. Today the
number Is near li.000. The time is
not far off according to military ex
perts. when the German power will
begin to dwindle and then Germany
will find herself driven to the con
solidation of divisiona.
Reports received here also show that
the new class of young soldiers,
known as the class of 19S1. will not

more that 450.000 men. Once a year
thereafter. It Is estimated, Germany
can gain only 4.V>,000 men for her
fighting ranks, unleaa some great
change la made In the use of men

Gala 450,000 a Year.
Great Interest Is attached here to
the reported atatement given out. It Is
believed, with the approval of Hlnden
burg s nd Ludendorff. In this state
ment It Is pointed out that It may be
neceaaary for the Germans to fall
back twelve kilometers. At some
points the Germans have already re
treated twenty kilometers.
The statement is published In the pa
pers throughout Germany and seeks
to explain why the much advertised
great offensive proved to be a boom
erang to the men who conceived it
After renewing the promise that a de.
cisive blow will be struck against the
allies, the statement says:
"The physiognomy which the strug
gle presents on the front between
Soissons and Rheims and In the
Champagne in consequence of the Ger
man attacks and the Franco-British
counter attacks has led to the neces
sity of postponing for some time th?
decisive blow. With this end In view,
a new basis for subsequent operations
and for the atrategical regroupings
has to be created.
??While awaiting until these prep
aration are completed, we have been
forced to retire In a northern di
rection on the Marne front. A re
treat of about a dozen kilometers
will perhaps be sufficient It is not
thought necessary now that Hin-,
denburg should find himself undei
the obligation of withdrawing the
front as far back as the Vesle River.
The German "interior front* (refer
ring to the civil population) Is Im
plored not to renounce its confidence
In our great leader. Hindenburg."
It is noticeable that the statement
mentions the opposing troops as be
ing Franco-British, no mention of
Americans being made.
