VIOLENT OFFENSIVES ON
FRONT S OCCUR DURING
Germans have continued attacks on
the French battle front, marked es-
pecially by furious fire of heavy guns,
and the Russians have resumed a
violent offensive over more than a
hundr ed miles of the eastern front,
intended probably to draw off Ger-
mans :rom the Verdun attack. These
are the main battlefield headliners of
the past several (lays. But the field
of geniiernl diplomnatic relations has
been ii d up stringently by the sink-
ing of1':i Bi'tih hships Sussex and
EnglIslmlnl:t u, w h ichl carrie(1 AmiericanfL
passzen s a ooaI'd. The Mexican
question is s1ll holding fire, and the
course that the Carranza troopers will
follow is still a burning one.
The Germans have kept up violent
assaults on the lines of the French,
especially west of the Meuse. They
have come within about four miles of
the Paris-Verdun railway, which
seems to be an objective. Numerous
reports state that the city of Verdun is
in flames in many parts. British at-
tacks farther west resulted in the
gaining of a few hundred yards of
trenches, but numerous French coun-
ter attacks on various partso of the
line were on the whole unsuccessful.
Russians trying to repeat the manoeu-
vers of 1914, when they drew off the
German campaign toward Calais, began
RBEVIEW Of WEEK'S WAR
recently a general offensive on most
of the eastern fronts, especially to the
south of Riga and in Bessarabia. The
results of these battles have contra-
dictory reports in the Petrograd and
Berlin offices. Russians have also oc-
cupied Ispahan, in a part of Persia
generally conceded as being under
the sphere of influence of Great
Britain. Russians are besieging Tre-
In the field of diplomacy, the situa-
tion is tied up by the deliberations re-
sulting from the sinking of two British
ships in the channel, and the probable
loss of several American lives. Wash-
ington authorities propose to await
further proof before assuming that
the sinking was by German submarine.
