The story oilers so simple an explanation" that I believe it will be found m due time fully conf.rmed by local evidence which cannot be oblit- erated. I "Everyone knows >tliat the great I German 42 centimetre howitzers re- I quire a concrete base, which has to be most carefully and laboriously con- structed. A certain German baron, has occupied .for some years, a cha- teau five miles from Namur. Last spring he made a new tennis .court in the grounds. German workmen were employed, and a deep concrete founda- tion was layed to precise measure- ments with a line of rails running to its." centre. Above it the asphalt ten- nis .court then was laid. "The. presence of concrete beneath, and especially the rails, which 'were supposed by the few persons who. saw them to be simply .conveniences for bringing up.the concrete, naturally no important acttacued 'to by those who played tennis this sum- mer on the court. "When'.the Germans made on Namur, giant howitzers, which cau only move-at the two miles.an hour, drawn by thirty- two horses for. each were placed m position on the rails, and firmly stationed on the concrete" which, was 'exposed and cleared in hy the removal of the asphalt. The ten-. nis court's position gave a clear and exactly measured range to the forty of Namur, wnich were smashed iipi'ra two days. "At .Maubeuge; similar plans 'were made. Some forest lanjl five miles away was sold two years ago for building purposes to a firm now be- lieved to be agents of Krupps. Indlt an alleged traction engine fac- tory fot-.which the space was .'covered with a deep layer of concrete and provided with rails The Germans ifhii in tho same way. It is.sus- peeked that similar concrete bases were prepared before the war by Ger- man agents around Antwerp, but the Germans do not appear to have found them accessible yet, or the Belgians forestalled them and rendered the concrete base useless." "A workshop near Schoonaerd was last week labelled by the Germans Not to IIP burned, It was built with German materials and German lab- the Belgians returned to it'they found it contained a complete plant and materials for making pen- toon NEW S.
