LONDON, March 30. -- Although the London newspapers re- gaid the situation on the western front as still serious there is noticeable a tone of greater confidence in their discussion of the battle now in its 10th day.

French reserves continuously are arriving and Â· entering the battle but as yet the German advance cannot be -said to have been stopped." The Daily Graphic believes that today's news is distinctly encouraging, while the Daily Telegraph says: "The week ends fairly well. It has been the most breathless and anxious time for the Allies since the opening -day of the war, but the enemy has been slowed up and every day that passes strengthens OUT confidence the more."
