. London, March 22. (Special Cable
gram to Omaha Bee and New York
.Tribune.) The Germans are bucking
' an Iron wall at the point near Cam
bra!, where their offensive against
j&t British lines was started. ; '
i I am familiar with the ground over
hich this great battle is being fought
- It gives the Germans an initial ad
vantage, but the nature of the terrain
itt this point makes a real strategic
I November last I walked over a
great part of the front where the Ger
jnan offensive is opening and dis.
cussed its possibilities.
It presents some amazing features.
The base of the assault is a line run
ning irregularly along the ridges. The
trench system is provided with a deep
underground tunnel about 18 feet
below the surface. I walked up a
stretch of this near Croisilles, which is
south of Arras, and is one of the
places mentioned as under attack.'
'i ADVANTAGE WITH FOE.
If the enemy wishes to retake the
ground he more or less voluntarily
quitted last spring, he has a great in
itial advantage. He can probably con
ceal several divisions underground.
His back areas are well treed and
much built over. He has had a year
longer to dig trenches than the allies.,
He can see our concentration very
much morw easily than we can see his.
More than this, he is making his
drive at a part of the front which the
British have only recently taken over
from the French. A little farther
south he probably hopes to gain some
advantage from the weakness natural
to a point of junction, but in the past
the laison of the two nations has
proved itself to possess even double
REASON FOR POLICY.
It is easy enough to understand why
the tierman higher command, should
have changed the general Dplicy from
retreat to advance, The Rnssian
news explains that. But the tactics of
this particular battle are .rather less
obv(ous. . V : . . : '
i A local victory her, is probably
easier than anywhere else, in the line
because our defenses are less well!
concealed, our gun positions more ex
posed, and more trench systems,!
newer and therefore less elaborate.
' If the enemy needs a victory for his
newspapers and for Austrian circul
ation, the place is well selected. But
the whole allied line will not bend.
4 H he wants a real strategic victory
ind a deep advance, his difficulties will
Ueeome "a thing imagination boggles
at" when, if ever, he reaches the old
battlefield of the Somme.

DESTINY Of MILLIONS HINGES
ON RESULT OF GREAT BATTLE
I (By Associated Proa.) . '
' Exactly 25 months after the Germans began the historic battle of
Verdun, the thunder of their guns deepened into a tempest of jire along
"the British front in Northern France, and they began what may be the
greatest battle of the war, a struggle which may lead to results which
will shape the destinies of millions of people over coming centuries.
The attack was made on a scale hitherto unknown during this waf '
of major offensives. It was over a front of 50 miles. Official reports
are very brief, but correspondents at the scene tell of the terrific storm
of artillery fire that burst over the lines held by Field General Haig's
The bombardment began at 5 c'clock Thursday morning Just
before the early spring dawn was breaking 'over eastern France. Shells
of large and small calibers, were rained upon lines held by the British
about five hours. Then German infantry stormed out to make the first
great assault-.The Germans, favored by the wind, moved forward under
cover of a pall of smoke, which hid the assaulting columns from the eyes
of the British holding the front lines. - ;'
Describing the battle, Andrew Bonar Law informed the House of
Commons that lightly held portions of the British line had been with
drawn, but said that there was no need for alarm on the part of the
country. The Associated Press correspondent at the British front re
ports that an attack there had been expected, and that great prepa
rations had been made to meet it. The Berlin official reports say that ,
the Germans have penetrated some British positions.
Nor were the German efforts concentrated on the front held by the '.
British. Early Thursday morning the Germans assaulted the French
lines near the village of Ornes, to the northwest of Verdun, and claim
to have penetrated a considerable distance. Near Rheims, too, the
, French were subject to assaults, but here the artillery bore the burden
of the fighting.' " , '
The atacks a Verdun and Rheims, however, may be considered for
the time being as mere diversions to the principal attack which has been .
loosed against the British. They would serve to keep French forces at -Verdun
and Rheims, from being transferred to the British sector, if that
part of the battle line should show any suggestions of bending back.
Nothing has been, reported as to attacks on the lines held by the'
Americans. It has been expected that the Germans would make an as- ''
sault on the American held trenches in the Lorraine and Toul sectors, i
acting on the theory that troops which "have not had experience in en
gagements of the first degree might be found easier than veterans. That
such an attack may yet be launched, and with only slight artillery prep
aration, is within the possibilities. . .

in the corner outside of Judge Day's

News From Neutral or Allied
Countries Misconstrued to
Aid German Cause in ,
(By dMoclatod Frew.) '
Berne, Nov. 8. Probably at no.iime
since the war began has German
propaganda been more aggressively
active in Switzerland than at the pres-
Those Yfk6 arc following the Ger
man campaign declare that uncounted
millions are being spent, and that
the expenditures have been increased
since the day, not so very many
months ago, when xounter efforts
were ; begun counter . efforts that
with a comparatively Insignificant
amount of money have accomplished
wonders by their tact and clever
ness. ' -
The.German propaganda is qperated
in a score of ways, but the chief
method is the presentation of the Ger
man viewpoint and German news in
the papers, but because it is clumsy
ft is vastly less effective than the
outlay should warrant. In brief, Ger
many. has tried and is trying to in
fluence Swiss public opinion as if the
Swiss people could clearly understand
the German way of thinking.
As the basis ojJts propaganda work
here Germany acquired a number of
newspapers in Switzerland several in
the. German language and one pub
lished in French,, the latter now under
suspension. Similarly, the "Swiss" pa
pers in the German language are quite
as abiousiy German . as the. Berlin
Lokal Anzciger or the Cologne Gaz
ette, execept that they are immeasur-
lably less able.
Distribute Colored News. ;
, The Germans acquired or started a
whole series of news agencies through
which to distribute their news. Soon,
however, these agencies added an
other and vastly more important func
tion, -that of collecting and transmit
ting news from countries at war with
Germany news, however, carefully
colored if not actually distorted.- It
was in this direction that the German
propaganda began to be dangerously
While German newspapermen them
selves could only roost along the Ital
ian border at Lugano, and the French
at Geneva, and transmit colored news
from Italian and French -newspapers
to Germany, the neutral Swiss cor
respondents of ,the so-called "Swiss"
agencies had free access to Italy and
France. They carefully chose all the
misleading, even though technically
accurate, news they could squeeze by
the censor. If a -sensational and un
influential deputy, in ;th'e. French or
Italian Chamber makes an attack on
the government, it is faithfully flashed
to Switzerland; if a score of women in
Rome throw stones during a protest
meeting, Switzerland hears of the
"rioting", that is gravely menacing the
established order it. Italy.
With America's entry into the war
the agencies went a step farther and
rendered another important service to
Germany, distorted news from the
United States. .Again and again the
reliable, the genuinely Swiss journals,
issued denials or published the cor
rect news.- The first effect was not to
be corrected by later stories.
lmbargo' Used as Arguments, ,
The general trend of this American
news concerns the embargo and Am
erica's intentions toward Switzerland.
Every storj in a list that would fill
a scrap book tended to show that the
United $tates hag the intention - of
starving its little sister republic. Not
even an announcement by Switzer
land's president that from authentic
reports he knew that food was under
way or soon to start could offset the
effect of the first stories. And they
had meantime gone to Germany and
were foil -wed. by sympathetic editor
ials in German papers popular her"V
commiserating with Switzerland i.
its struggle against Yankee oppres
sion, r , ,
A third propaganda method which
began early-to operate and, still flour
ishes, is that of "literature" that Is
distributed by the ton. Switzerland is
flooded with it, and the protests that
have been raised have come in a sur
prising number of cases from Gerftian
Switzerland. The procedure is "echt
deutsch." It is one that has been fol
lowed in Holland, in Scandinavia, In
all the neutral countries since the be
ginning of the war.
Austrians More Clever.
, Vastly more effective and clever
has been the Austrian propaganda In
Swizterland. Shortly after the open
ing of the war two influential and
clever newspapermen one - an Aus
trian from Vienna,' the other a Hun
garian from Budapest both of whom

HAD 80,000 SPIES
All Are .Being Hunted Down

(Correspondence of The AaaoclateONfre!..)
Petrograd, March 22.-Thirly-three
long lists of spies, informers and
agents provocateurs m jx-Emperor

by the commission for' securing the
new system of government apppinted
by the provisional government im
mediately after the revolution. Fifty
more lists may be expected. The,
total number of these secret legion-"
aries of autocracy is expected to
reach 80.000. Those whose guilt is
beyond doubt have been put in jail;
but it is not yet settled whether they
will be tried and punished or merely
kept (in jail until the peril, of a reac
tionary colinttr revolution has passed. ,
As1 revealed by these iuquiries, au
tocracy's spies and informers were Z
much less picturesque and romantic
than they appear in the typical "ni
hilist novel. 'Most belonged to the
more intelligent working class or to
the minor bourgeoisie. They were
paid badly, the average wage for or

accomplices being $20 a month. The
spies were usuallyonstructed to be
