THE BEE: OMAHA. TUESDAY. OCTOBER 2. 191. GERMANY SHAKF-N, BDT STILL STRONG Secretary Baker, in Weekly Communique on War, De clares Enemy is Beginning to Deteriorate. 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 ing. 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 proceeding satisfactorily. 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 tions. 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 Ypres salient now definitely threat- ens me enemy a hum. ui luiuuiumw . tions to the.Belgian caast. The Os-tend-Lille railway, whfth in a large measuie feeds the German v naval bases at Ostend and Zebrugge, the . later home port of the German high seas submarine floatillas, now comes within, the range of the hre ot the British guns. "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 attacks.' 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, remains powerful" Mobilizing National Guard. The only 'mention of American forces, is as follows: "The mobilization of the National Guard in ' their camp is proceeding Rapidly and the formation .of reorgan ized divisions is taking place. This reorganization is necessitated by the conditions of the present war1 and re quires larger regiments and certain machine guns and other units not typ ical heretofore. Some misunderstand ing of the organization has arisen, but its purpose and nvlitary necessity are being explained ard the division com manders art doing their ufmost to preserve cht Jocal . assoc'ations and historic memories of these state forces. , "The assembling of the national army in the cantonments has gone on with smfot''ness and success. Equip ment difficulties ire not serious and are being rapidly overcome The most obvious shortage fs'in rifles, but an adequate supply for all purposes soon will be at hand and no delay in trac ing results from the shortage. AH overseas forces of course are ade quately supplied.

Vice president Marshall also pre sented today anotheriot of petitions, letters and telegrams from various or ganizations and individuals on the same general subject. Included were printed circular petitions indicating that many such are being circulated and probably wifl reach the senate in great numbers. In reply to one cor responded Vice President Marshall pointed out that while the senate may expel a member, the initiative must come from a Senator and cannot be senate. forced by an individual or an orsan- lzation. The first step toward official con sideration of the petitions was taken today when Senator Pomerene of Ohio, chairman of the privileges and election committee, called a meeting for next Wednesday. It was de cided to have the committee discuss a course of action. The present at titude of senate leaders was said to be in favor of tabling the petitions in the commfttee.
