AORIVEONmy Paris, April 29.-(Toronto Mall and Empire Cable.)-Since the beginning of the German offensive there has been much talk here of an Austrian offensive against Italy. Austrian mlHtarjr critics, however, say such an offehs'lve at the^resent moment is almost impossible. Great Austrian trooji concentrations hasp "taken place In the rear of the Austrian lines, however, and it is expected here that .offensive soon Will be launched. The military critic of the Neuve Frele 'Presseot Vienna says the weift-ern front together with the southwestern front really constitmes ' but one front, but owing to difficult communications, unity Is not perfect yet. Replying to those who ask why tha Austrian.offensive has beeu bo.much delayed, tlie critic contends tlikt a. simultaneous attack is not applfcabltft in the present case. 4978 565?7539 06036? 03 ;
