BDT STILL STRONG
Secretary Baker, in Weekly
Communique on War, De
clares Enemy is Beginning
Washington, Oct 1. Shaken, but
still powerful, is the estimate of Ger
many's defensive strength on the
western front, Riven in this week's
official communique, issued- by the
War department '
The superiority of the French over
their enemies, the communique says,
has been proved conclusively bythe
last weeks fighting, while it has
demonstrated that the fighting
stamina of the German is deteriorat
Of the activities of the American
force in Europe, the communique says
absolutely nothing. Of the forces at
home, it reports mobilization of the
National Guard and the national army
The analysis of. the situation on
the west front, which the communique
says remains the principal battle of
the war. fallows:
"The battle of Menin road (Ypres
salient), which promises-to be one
oi tne greatest Dairies oi tne war. is
following its normal course. Last
week we recorded the, gains of the
British in this sector. This week we
must note the desperate attempts bv
the Germans to retake the lost post
British Capture Zonnebeke.
IBeginning Sunday last, the con
stantly ..increasing violence of the
f " counter attacks reached a culmination
on the 27th instant, when seven pow
efful onslaughts by.the picked 'storm
battalions of the enemy endeavored
vainly to regain the lost objectives.
The village of Zonnebfcke, the center
of the conflict, is now firmly held by
the British. .
"It is evident that the efforts of the
enemy in this sector are not actuated
merely by the desire to regain lost
terrain of little more than tactical
v value, nor must their persistent at-
,tacks be considered merely the nor
mal reaction of a moderate field en
gagement, in which counter attack
invariably follows upon attacks, but
rather it is to be noted that the enemy
realizes fully the immense strategic
importance of the thrust along the
Menin road. ,
"This new British advance in he

railway, whfth in a large

bases at Ostend and Zebrugge, the

seas submarine floatillas, now comes

"The superiority of the British
over the enemies was conclusively
proved during the engagement of the
past week. The battle of Menin
road, furthermore, shows that the
fighting stamina of the Germans is
deteriorating, not that the enemy did
not display great skill and dogged
determination in his repeated counter
Of the fighting on the French front
the comminique says: y
"The outstanding feature of the re
cent engagements is the wastage of
the man power of the enemy. If we
compare the combat front of Ver
dun in 1916, held by twelve German
divisions, with the combat front
along the Aisne in 1917 held by four
teen divisions, botn ot practicauy uic
same length, it is found that during
the same period of time from May to
September, 1916 and 1917 respective
ly, the enemy enraged a'ong the Ver
dun front twenty-five new divisions
last year; along th$ Aisfie thirty-five
ne -' divisions th;s year.
"So great has the wastage of enemy
forces become, owing to the improved
mechanical means of the allies and the
perfection of thei' methods of com
bat that the Germans are obliged to
maintain in reserve as a minimum
guarantee for the safety of their battle
line in the west, a. least forty divisions.
The western front thu remains the
principal battle, f.cnt of the war. It is
still strongly held by the enemy and
his defensive strength, while shaken,

The only 'mention of American
forces, is as follows:
"The mobilization of the National
