WITH THE AM KUIC AX ARM V
IN FRANCE, March IS. One of
the chief arguments against the im-
, mi'nence of an immediate German
! drive
on the western front, is thj
j fact that German newspapers an;
! printing stories on the subject, but
these arguments were pointed out
i today as possibly being groundless
; when it is realized that all of th'j
live big German operations since the
beginning of the war have been
widely heralded in advance.
The five big German campaigns in
their order were:
(1) The driving back of the Rus
sians from the Dunajec to the Rrest
Latovsk line in the summer of 1915.
(2) The overrunning of Servia In
the autumn of 1915.
(3) The Verdun drive in the
spring of H16.
(4) The overrunning of Kouman
ia in the fall of 191.
(.") The thrust against the Ital
ians in the fall of 1917.
Other bifir German offensive or. -erations
were the submarine war
which was announced early in the
winter of 1JU4-19K- and aerial
bombing, announcement of which
came in the fall of 1317.
OUkt Campaigns Heralded.

. 'ii 1 1 v ...IUI J 1 . . jiivi n .1 mal . 7 . . T
one of the campaigns mentioned
above wer? clearly foreshadowed.
Iteports to Swiss newspapers from
German and Austrian sources indi
cated a concentration of artillery foe
von MacKensen's attempt to breach
the Russian front at the point A
its farthest advance into (Jalicia
the Cracow sector. Then came th
Servians call for help before the
advance of the Germans, Austrians
and Rulgarians to the Greek bor
der. Next appeared stories in the
Dutch press about German troop
concentrations on the western front.
The enemy made no secret of th?
formation of a great mobile army
for operations against Roumania,
while the newspapers foresaw the
offensive against Italy long beforo
it was launched.
!Ioh for Peace Spark.
Germany officially gave notice of
her submarine intentions and for
months the German newspapers
have been carrying stories about the
reinforcement of bombarding" squad
rons to carry the war farther afiehi
than ever before in an effort to hurt
the morale of the civilian popula
tion. In this thy have failed.
It is pointed out. however, that
there is a certain amount of bluff
in German references t the pro
posed offensive in the west, as Ber
lin undoubtedly hopes that the
peace spark may flare up into flame
before any drive can he launched
and hosts of men sacrificed.
Military critics hold that the fact
is plain even to the casual observer
that it is row or never for German
before the United States puts an
army in the field overshadowing in
size and equipment even the hosts
put under arms by Knuland and
Frame. Furthermore, standardized
tonnage will ease the shipping pres
sure considerably.
The enemy command now i evi
ilently stayintr its hand because it is
reluctant to play its last card. An
other failure like that at Verdun

GORE Iii FIGHT
Wants Important Rider At

loternational News S;rv;.e:
WASHINGTON. March IS. Tho
senate today was involved in a bitter
tight over an effort led by Sen. (lore
of Oklahoma, to hang two important
riders, on the agricultural appro
priation t ill.
The VivsX. of these riders is ?n
amendment for $2.50 wheat, ot-
withstan-Jinq- I'res't Wilson's opposi
tion, 'en. Gore, a frequent insur
gent, today demanded the suspen
sion of the senate rules to make the
rider in order. His motion reiuires
a two-thirds vote, and although sen
timent is fairly strong in the senat;
for $2. 50 wheat, indications were
that the movement would fail.
Sen. Gore, as chairman of the ag
ricultural appropriation committee,
takes the position that America will
not obtain the maximum of wheat
production necessary
this vear un-
less the price to the farmer is ma
terially increased. If he failed to get
the price increased oy action on tho
pending agricultural bill, he will r2
new the "effort at the next parlia

The second of the riders is a pro
posal to place the meat packers'
books under the inspection ami
supervision of the department of ag
riculture. The measure grows out rf
the Henev investigation of the meat
packing industry. To him this pro
posal in ?rder a two-thirds vote sus
pending the rules is also required
and it was considered doubtful
whether they could be obtained.

TransMiriation H'ff IVohlcm.
One of the big questions of
modern warfare is transportation
getting supplier and munitions to
the front and Americans are work
ing with that principle in mind.
American engineers follow the
theory that the enemy suns may
rip up the trackage for a short dis
tance, hut that shells are unlikely
to shatter entirely the right of way
as experience shows that even ter
rific bombardments don't oblierate
trenche for a long distance.
The Americans figure alo that it
is almost as easy to replace stand
ardized guage lines as the narrow
guage. The standard guage lines
can handle twice the traffic of the
narrow giiase systems and besides
eliminate reshipment.

Farmers throughout the country ar?

boys up to full quota will soon 1-3

Indiana farmers have asked for
lä.OOO boys ami men for full time
work during the harvest season.
Mere than 9.000 are already enlisted
in the state. Colorado has asked fo
additional numbers to work on the
farms ami to help with the season'
canning.
Massachusetts has arrange! with

school boys early so they can tak-
their places on the farms and back
up their brothers "over there." Ap
propriations for training the boys in
farm work have been obtained in
Massachusetts and Pennsylvania ha.-?
followed with a suni'ar measure f-r

Western states which used th"

WITH THi: AMKKIv'A.N A KM Y
IN FKA-VCF. March 1 ... ( Delayed t
In all three sectors where Amer
icans are on the fiont. line north
of Toul, east of I.uneville and at
the Chemin des Maines the tier-
mans have discovered that they are !
opposed by "tough customers" when
it comes to lighting men. The enemy
is evidently not going to make the
Fame mistake he did in l'.1l. when
he classed the Kritis.h as "a con
temptible little army."
The Germans have learned that
the fresh American troops, unused
to the refinements taught by 4 2
months of warfare, are undaunted
in the lace of the heaviest bombard
ments and the deadliest and most
horribl pn.duets of the German
laboratories.
I'se All Horrors.
The enemy has used successively
mustard ga chlorine gas. teat
shells and liquid tire, all intermingled
with concentrated hombardments
from long range guns as well as
from heavy howitzefs and the I tUst
type of huge calibre trench mor
tars. Colossal shells from the Ger
man minenwerfers tear up great
craters bi enough to set a good
sized church in-
The boches' attempt to harass,'
Americms at night by sending over
bombing aeroplanes have signally
failed. The American otlicers and
men hive found the hide-and-seek
lightinr against aircraft with high
angle guns and searchlights highly
entertaining and amusing.
Furthermore, the enemy has found
the Americans have the same high
grade marksmanship as the Britih
and tint tho Yankee soldiers don't
f'jrget the instructions drilled int
them during months of training with
rifies and automatic pistols.
Dispute P(Ncssioii.
The Germans found to their dis
satisfaction that they were no
longer undisputed possessors of "No
Man's land." American patrols hao
been sweeping the territory between
the tr.nches at frequent intervals
between sunset and dawn, always
eager for a brush with enemy pa
trols. Their activity has proven
highly annoying to the enemy, pre
ventinc him from repairing the
breaches cut in his barbed wir- by
the guns during the day.
In the Lorraine stor. -.ist of
I.uneviile especially, the offensive
spirit of the Americans has b. en re
warded as the Kavarians evacuted a
trench rather than withstand the
continual heavy pressure exerted by
the Americans.
DNconeertcxI hy Shell.
The Germans have been onenly
disconcerted by the metal thrown
against him continually by the
Americans as it is part of their
policy to conserve shells everywhere
except in openly active sectors which
they li've to choose for themselves.
Recently captured German army
orders, broucht in by raiders, li
(losed that the German high com
mand :s showini; anxiety over the
