Prof. Pupin has great faith in Field Marshal Mishitch, the Serbian com mander who repulsed the Austrians in November four years ago, and who he says now is commanding a well-efjuip-ped and seasoned army of 60,000 Ser bians. These troops are not excelled as mountain fighters, according to Prof. Pupin, and he is confident that they know every inch of the terrain over which they are advancing into the heart of the Bulgarian forces.

The Huns there will have to give bat tle at a disadvantage or retreat. "I do not speak of Austrians because there are no such people not in the sense in which the word is used. "The people of Austria are many and varied Magyars. Poles. Hungar ians, Rumanians, Serbs, Jugo-Slavs. Rumelians, Czecho-Slavs. Italians, etc., besides some millions of Germans.
