There is no certainty that' the German artillery activity oa'tife. -Western, front is the beginning of the much Taunted spring drive. It may be preparatory- to such a movement 'as its extension over a wkte front would indicate that the enemy'is seeking out a weak, point, or is striving to ma?k a movement in. an unexpected iuar- t*;r; Whatever may he the plan it may bs depended upon, that tlje Allied armies, including our. own which no\\ toldw an important sector of the Hue, wilJ^be quick to discern the object and vfll_be prepared-for any:.onslaughts Hffidentiurg m his desperation ^may make. - . ' Â·. ?'Â· Â·" It is well knowTi .that the Germans have Â· been preparing a driviv for months.Rast on a scale surpassing all previous efforts. The betrayal of Russia: by the harebrained "revolutionists, aod the delivery of that naUoa, into the hands of "Germany/ has released laiige bodies ^f troops which have : been massed 6a the vreatern front until the numerical strength, of the opposing forces is nearly equal. Realizing, as the Kaiser and his war-lords do, that "We axfi at ihe decisive moment" of tiie war and oae of the greatest momeais in German history," it is to be oxpecter that the'supreme effort of Germany to^crusfa. the Allied* armies will be made In the conflict which may now be^actualry-in progress. Compared with the preparation made by Germany that made* by England, France and America is no less formidable. Since the arrival in Franco of the first contingents of the American Expeditionary Foraes, the most intense activity has prevailed in the direction of establishing Imes ol communication between, the'bases and the front and preparing tire armies for either a defensive or offensive campaign,. The American, engineers have rebuilt the railways in the rear of" the lines, .have manned the trains and.ap- plied American methods to the handling of untold tons of munitions anc supplies^so that .today the Allied armies are more completely supplier with all the necessaries for an assault, or for making a drive of their OWTJ, than at any j.?j.*evious time in the progress O f tbe trar. There is 'the experience of former camp^gns from which to profit and there is a grimmer determination to "see toe thing through" animating the forces thai bare steadily driven the Buns back from the high-water rcark ot" .their advance toward the Channel coast ant toward Paris. . Â· The struggle will* be the inost 'titan- tic -of the war, the fate of nations including' our crwa depending "upon the outcome. Through a willingness to sacrifice any number of-men the Germans, ..by. mere, weight of .numbers, may make temporary local gains, but they will not be able to break down the barrier that has been raised against their permanent forward move- meat. The Allies will vrin'anA in that winning pur boys will have a part that will; add -icaperigbable'glory to Ameri- porting affidavits and thus secure deferred, classification 'for 'them. Unless Ihis is done the farmers will be without' recourse to retain the relatively email-number.', of farm, laborers who now'reinain stfcct'to call for military service*. '" In this particular the selective service law has tailed of its announced purpose of protecting, one. of tbe most icntial industries -from a depletion of the. ranks 'of ,its workera. 'The ner^'Juit as patriotic as any .other classVof citizens,' have"not urged:tbat preference^be given" them, as-a class. Individual workers have, in many iu : stances, 'refused and irill still refuse to aste for exemption from military service because of their occupation as farm laborers. The employing farmers, not of draft age, have expected different results from the Jaw wiviout the: necessity of- having to perform the somewhat unpleasant and unpopular task of seeking to have men exempted from service which many of them are entirely willing to_enter upon!. Much better andjmore.'satisfactory results would have followed from an application of the principles of the law as originally understood "than to have interpreted tbe selective feature to apply solely to the selection of men physically qualified to be soldiers, and with apparent disregard of the needs of tne essential -in-dustries. Do 'not allow yourself to be foolccj by the apparent mild advent of spring- at so_ early a date., March has HP change*obfe~ moods' and "U ca;i ring: many of them in the remaining ten 4*7?- "..,".'.','' ." i In his -latest -public- deliverance or. the war the TCaiser"makes fiO reference to the combined power and mig-ht of "Me und-Gott." TTIth" evident dis-cour- "fieremenf over the. outlook he. admits that '*W* are at the decisive moment of '.he war and one of the Â£reo.tÂ«)t moT^en..ts in German history.

Tb.^ popular conception of the law has Jeen that jt would automat;.cally delude necessary farm labor from mlUtarr'serrice so" tbat- production 1 of foodstufEs might be conttiiucd upon, a scale commensurate with the n^ds of war time. -Durlng v ihe 'first' drft' th"ere ; were many exemptions under the rules and: regulations ihc-n in Co'rcc. which granted exemption to registrants who established the, fact -that they were necessary -as .agricultural 'labort-rs or farm managers.
