^ PAGE SIX ^ + + + The WAR TODAY + + + • BY DEWITT MACKENZIE .We can't know the extent 'jf the damage which the German offensive has done the Allies until General Eisenhower launches his major colmter-atrack and puts Nazi Marshal-Von Rundstedts flashing steel to the full test. That ijreat and perhaps decisive battle isn't likely to be lor.g deferred, though one proceeds cautiously with estitnutes these day.s when news fi-oni the front often is delayed 48 hours by censorijhlp. As things now look we may expect to see shortly it titanic engagement which will liame throughout much of the some 2,501' square miles whicli the Germans have overrun.: The prospects remain .broadly what I hey were the day Von Rund- siedt flung hi£ attack through a pea-soup los: against the thirilifholil American front alonp '.he Argonne. He knew then that hu; colossal gamble, into which he was poui'ing all his re.>^ources, would bring him one of two things—cither he would suc- ceet' in delaying final Allied victory over-Hitli-rdom indefinitely.: or ne would receive a knockout blow. Those alturnutives still art; before liim. Ther" Is. however, this Idlfferetice: his position is mu.-h stroni^er today becau .'^e of th« damage he has inflicted to the American fighting machine and because he has succeeded in uniting his two original sptarhead.s, 1 hereby giving his salient .much greatfr stability. General Eis"iinower ha .sn 't yet lost his oppor'auilty of administering a; knockout to lii.j opponent. Stiil, Von ; Rundstedt by cluver generalship has i maneuvered liimself Into such a p(<- | .'ition' th;;l ulR-ii hi- has to f:;ce the: lull .slrcivjth (if the Allied counter | blow hf )!iav Lie ablf to pull bac'a ' into "his old jiositjon in the Siegfried defi -nst'. and thus avoid hav- •iiK liis forces cut off and annihilated This of oui^e would mean lie had "iuccerdi-d in protractiriu tht' wai; .so tint his masters could fisii lor peace.

As we ljuilt up our reserve! we'd want to tflrn our 4rength into aggressive acts. Military training would takt? out of a young man's life, by interyupthig rfls schooling and occupational plans and delaying the tlm^ when he could marry and establisli a home. . fSuch training isn't netjessary. 'We've done pretty well by halting uatil war came and then using our wartime draft system. If there is a real league to preserve peace, a big reserve force wouldn't be necessary. ^The combined strength 'of the league partners would be enough to deter or crush an aggressor. , Compulsory military tralnlnK would niake other nations suspicloti^ of us, particularly Latin American countries. They, too, would consider it n^lfcessary for them. Then there'd be ail armament race. Compulsory military training didn't save FraAce.
