MEANING OF MOVES
IN TODAY'S WAR NEWS
The Germans have taken the of'
tensive in the West. Thisis clearly In
dicated in the continued assault t o the
Crown Prince' army in the Argonne
region and violent German attacks all
along the line from Arras to Ypres.
The large movement of German troops
from Galicia along the railways of
southern Germany is said by the
French to be preparatory to a glgantio
assault on the Verdun line of defenses.
Flushed with victory on the eastern
front the Germans apparently feet that
"now or never" is the time to strike a
more or less decisive blow to their
enemies in the West, The French and
English seem to be ready, however, and
have thus far repulsed all German at
tacks. Russian resistance to a diversion of
Mackensen's main army toward Cholm,
an important railway centre, dominat
ing the Ivangorod-Warsaw system, in
dicates a sudden and sensational coup
in the Warsaw drive. Recent dispatches
from Austrian headquarters announced
that Ivangorod was the next goal of
the Austro-Oerman forces. The cur
rent dispatch from Petrograd sheds
further light on the Austro-Gcrman
Sweeping advance of the Austro
Germans in the South Poland invasion
between the Rug and Vistula Rivers
under Maekensen and progress in Hn
singen's violent offensive along the
Dniester and Gnila Ltpa Rivers in
Southeast Galicia are causing conster
nation in Petrograd and London.
Menace on IParsnto grows hourly,
as the Germans are only 100 miles
from the great covering fortress at
Srest-Litovsk in one sector and are
moving rapidly toward the Ivangorod
stronghold-base in another.
Soma Slav strategists deem thojorce
of the Galician offensive of the foe is
spent and look for a turning movement
directed at tho Germans between the
Bug and Vieprs rivers.
The desperate attacks and terrific
losses of the Austrians along the Isomo
front reveal the fact that Vienna is
putting forth its uttermost efforts to
check the Italian advance. The way
to Trieste is clear, but the Italians
cannot take advantage of this opening
until they have forced the retirement
of the Austrians from their strong po
sitions around Gorizia, where the
heaviest fighting is now going on.
