Rmnors of an impending German thrust through Alsace were heard
in Switzerland as German strength was massed with such strategy that
an attack via Istein, the Rhineland "Gibraltar," across Alsace between
Mulhouse and the Swiss fiontier was considered probable. Meanwhile,
French sources said French guns dominated the six German industrial
cities underlined on this Associated Press map. Around those cities
French troops were widening flanking movements in efforts to make
capture possible.

Mr. Prakken pointed out, because of
the inadvisability of combining city

been done in the past, with little in-
