Scarcity of Fighting Material.
The German army morale is un
questionably weakening so far as
certain elements which make up a
large part of the army is concerned.
Rut disregarding that and putting
all the boches on an equal plane,
when the Germans started their
drive cf July 15, Ilindenburg had
some seventy divisions in reserve
with which to batter his way to
Paris. In the fighting to date since
then the seventy-three German divi
sions have been identified, of which
forty-eight were brought up from
the German reserve. Of these eighty
sixteen were so decimated that they
cannot be used as shock troops for
at least four months. Sour of these
were put out by the Americans. The
Fifth guard division, Fourth Prus
sian guard, Twenty-third and Two
Hundred and Sixteenth. The Ger
mans now face the problem of build
ing up these divisions with a great
scarcity of first class fighting material.
Hindenburg had to draw heavily
on his reserves, it is thus seen. On
the other hand, Foch hardly touch
ed his. Germany now has twenty
frahs divisions. She can use these
for her promised drive against
Rritain. Rut will she? I think she
will not. Ilindenburg dare not take
the chance with these twenty' new
divisions. It would leave him strip
