GERMANS AGAIN ATTACK BELGIANS Offensive Movement Stopped After Many Skirmishes Strict Censorship Put Into Effect to Remarkable Degree Not One Word Regarding British Troops or Naval Ac tivities, Numerical Strength, Where Army May Be orPosition of Any Battleships. The censorship put into effect by the British authorities over the movements of the empire's armed forces, afloat and in Belgium, is effective to a remarkable degree. Not one word of news has come through for several days past concern -ing British military or naval activities. Censored despatches from Brussels and Paris have frequently referred to the pres ence of British troops arrayed against the forces of Germany, but one word has been allowed to come through from any source to indicate what the numerical strength of the British field army may be, or where the units may be located. Equal secrecy shrouds the movements of the British war ships believed to be holding the German fleet in check in the I North sea. NJf r.T-.r t- n iL,,, ,-,u C f U i.; 1 Wl.
