BERLI N SILEN O N
Berlin, via Copenhagen and Lon
don, Si-'pt. ''.Another day has pass
ed without news of the groat battle
near Paris, concerning which no re
ports nor details have been available
since a week ago.
The general staff *n response to a
query characterized the general sit
uation as "favorable," but refrained
from any comment whatever over the
course of events since the first days
of the 7'jiig'lish-Frerich attacks and the
withdrawal of the German right wing
A report vrhU-h was in circulation
that the operations had already re
sulted in a great victory found no
confirmation. On the contrary, it ap
pears that the battle can still hist

extent and from which so much de
pends will not be decided in a short

London, Sept. _- The correspond

the plains of Chalons, says:
"It is possible that if he is strong
enough to hold the Argonne forest
that the Germans may complete a
change of front and swing their ar
mies in the pivot of Argonne round to
the Meuse valley, in which case Gen
eral von Kluck's army will find itself
in the position of outside running,
such as at the bend of a railroad
track, and might be unable to get
around in time."
