Large relnforcementc have been brought up and the new line hac been strengthened and consolidated. The correspondent declares there are signs that the German offensive already is weakening. French military authorities are cautious of acting on the theory that the plan 0? the Germans IB to break through to the English Channel, but regard it as patent that such a huge concentration of troops on a lim- ited front means that the present drive is preparatory tg some Important undertaking.
