ALLIES MASS BIG
Indications that Great Offensive
Movement Will Start Early
TEUTONS MAY ATTACK FIRST
(Correspondence of the AsvocIstPd Press)
SALONIKI, March 1. The great
Balkan offensive of the allied armies
Is believed to be arranged for the
first week In May. Should weather
conditions prove exceptionally favor
able, It may occur even earlier. That
It will take place noon no one In
Salonlkl doubts for a moment. The
only thing that can atop It Is for the
' Germans and tbe Bulgarians to move
first and there Is little belief In
x this contingency.
The Increasing stores of munitions
and eupplles a!riving In this port In
' an unending stream, the constant
s hard work of General Sarrall and bis
staff, the activity of the allied scouts
and aeroplanes and the cheery
' features and high spirits of tbe
'French aqd British soldiers, and the
. eagerness of the Serbs to get them
, selves'into the fighting again at the
earliest possible, moment, add to the
conviction that an attack on Salon
lkl in tbe spring Is a certainty.
There ere today Home 95,001) French anil
130,000 British troops here, which is about
a man to every foot and a half of defen
sive line to be held Besides tho British
j and French, there are some l,ono Serbs
; in SuJonLkr and along the Oreelc frontier.
There are also said to be some 1?,000 more
French en their way from Marseilles,
making a total of 236,000 allied troops as
a garrison for Salonlkl, not counting tho
. personnel of tho warship stationed In the
Macedonia er Eirypt.
. Military crltlfcs ' consider this figure far
' In excess of .defensive necessity, particu
larly when tHe physical defense works of
the place to be ield by them are aa plan
ned as those' which have been constructed
aroand Salonikl. ;Bitt In addition to these
forces actually available, or soon to he
available In Macedonia, there are the re
mainder of the French and British troops
withdrawn Crom Galllpoli, still at Mudroa
. and generally scattered about islands of
Ijtamioa. Tehedos. ' Imbros 1 and Mytilene.
There are probably more.-but assuming
that there are only 100.00 of these, ready
to be dispatched to Macedonia or Eirypt.
as occasion may require, this would bring
- the, fltrure of those available for Instant
use lit Salonlkl up to 336,000 men by spring.
There are also 25,000 Serbs in America and
elsewhere whom have only recently been
called to the colors wnd some of whom
are arriving every few days at' SalonlW.
which brings the figure 'up to 361,000 men.
' Laree Amy tor Albania. y
Meanwhile In; Corfu'-, there are soir. '
134.000 Serbs refitting, and at Blierta some
.2."),000 more, making a total of 159,000 Serbs
.available1 for work ' In .' Albania, to. be

Col. Mailer Would
Go After Villa, tut
; He Has Not the Time
"TV should go Into Mexico and make
them behave. That la the only solution of
th situation." Colonel John G. Maher
The colonel came to Omaha for a short
visit. Ma said he felt pugilistic when he
read th reports of Villa' activities on

organise a regiment end go down to the
border myself, .but I can't oare the time
Just now ,r added the Lincoln man.
During ills stay her the colenel looked

sidering. He aaid he would take a new
typewrlter.to .the front If he ahould go.
) "I met Villa many time "when. I 'was

In fact, some of the prisoners live so
