April 19. French of fleer who Is certainly in a position to speak with some authority said to a New Tork Times representative, ac cording to a Paris dispatch to that paper: "I do not think that we may expect General Foch to take the Initiative Just yet. In my opinion, and It le only an opinion, for I cannot In any way speak officially, there Is no Im mediate necessity for Mm to take the Initiative of the kind which we all hope and feel sure he will take soon er or later. "At present both (he British and French armies are very busy killing Germans, and killing them at a very satisfactory rate. Indeed. This, of course. Is our Immediate object, and If the Germans are so obliging ss to continue to give us the opportunities they have given during the last week we shall be the last to raise objec tions.

IVe have the Boche where we want him to be, snd we have no dSubt that we can keep him there a great deal long er than It will be healthy for him. "There Is no reason for any anx iety as to the present situation, none whatever. The best thing I can tell i you to do Is what Foch told Clemen-' ceau nearly a month ago, and that was simply, "Walt.'" This fairly sums up military opin ion here. The allied game Is to kill the Boche and wait. It Is difficult even to hint at any kind of predic tion under present circumstances, but there Is an opinion here among peo ple whose Ideas are worth listening to that the'great struggle In Plcardy and Flanders may continue under Its present aspects for perhaps another three weeks before any striking change occurs in the situation. Hard Knocks Certain. This period will undoubtedly be marked by many hard knocks, but the . allied forces are In a position to stand them. That they may give ground and probably will do so ini to be the general expectation. j But so did the French at Verdun. ; I' took the boche six long months, un- j uc, ,&, iituic takvinui, Liibuutni.nun, to advance four miles from Diuau- mnm? ftntll V uram flnallv ilnnn, H I fore Fort Souvllle.

April 29 Encour aged by the report that Germany had sent an ultimatum to Holland and that the two nations were on the brink of war, fully 1.000 Germans In terned In a Dutch camp at Vapenveld revolted, and many of them escaped across the frontier before they could be recaptured.

All this is important to the man with an income the Government will probably need it. An Italian gentleman named Sifrnor Stefano Bardini has been selling his art collection. Inter esting names and fastened to in teresting antiques, and interest ing prices paid. It would also be interesting, if not impertinent, to ask how much was invested in Liberty bonds by the various lovers of the antique that bought trifles for $10,000 and $15,000 apiece. A Liberty bond is dreadfully new, but the Kaiser has some an tique notions that would prevail If this war went the wrong way. Those particular notions would be as harmful to the buyer of an tiques as to anybody else. It is probable that the pur chasers of these relics of other days bought Liberty bonds as lib erally as anybody else in propor tion to their fortunes. But how quickly Liberty bonds would sell if it were possible to make every American as much In terested In Liberty bonds as some Americans are interested in carv ed, painted, sculptured, or enamel ed relict of old time. i m y - r A'5-- si .ni) l ; vxmofi&stz- m. fK&- ..-ife i. n mos - -ff -sesey ( wHfcr eLse TrefteN f CAV- ivr, .77 " - J J Lag'l eLSG -TreRe BGlbGS A APPR.eC I AT16NJ MOUO ArJb -THtJ f IF H-H A?PRGCIA.THS MY LMoaJ pie He APPfceciArres V TO ResPerr MY MEMORY . . . rv.rcrfine- I- A h THE SCCOML pssssW ResPetr my MEMOP-Y UJttOO M GOME L E NEW TORK, April 88, A Dutch business man arriving here from Ger many ssld that a German staff officer told hlra the German high command did not consider the American army as a serious factor In the war because the troops were only amateur soldiers, says a copyright Rotterdam dispatch to the New York Times. The German officer continued: "Americans are clever business people, and we shall be glad to cap ture 200.000 of them and place them In our factories and machine shops, where we have British prisoners working. Can't Starve Germany. "It Is foolish for the entente allies to think they can starve Germany Into submission to their demands. Agri cultural experts have been sent from Germany to Turkey. Roumanla.

The Dutch buslnei man said that an army officer of high rank In Berlin ' had told him that the total number of' Germans who had been killed or had died of wounds or sickness since the' war began was 3.000.000.

At tempts probably will be made to amend the measures to Include a larger number, but the Government will have to bear the responsibility for Insistence on the Quota deter mined upon by the War Do partment. Indications are that at least 1,500,000 men will be asked for. This number will not be difficult to get. Provost Marshal Enoch Crowder, whose business It Is to supply men.

Such a revision undoubtedly will be necessary whatever the War Depart ment finally settles upon as the num ber need that can be accommodated this year, because It Is the business of the provost marshal's office to have men ready for any emergency that may arise.

By Inquiring carefully Into deferred classification-, the provost marshal may discover that more men should have been placed In class 1. and ex plicit instructions to Government ap peal agents to look Into all cases pre viously regarded ss close may glvo the necessary reserve supply of men without touching the lower classes. It Is estimated that such a revision may bring the number of registrants in class one up to a.iwtUKK). This means -of course reducing the number In the deferred classes in such fash Ion as to mske class two larger than heretofore.
