Joffre, French Commander-in-chief; Field Marshal Sir John French, and King Albert of Belgium, are de- veloping a new plan of campaign that involves the almost continu- ous use of artillery on a vast scale along the whole line. Masses of artillery have been employed by both sides since the beginning of operations In prepar- ing for infantry attacks, pounding their adversaries for an hour or two, then suddenly suspending fire and assaultinn with infantry. The Allies are now methodical- ly maintaining their shell fire for days at a time, without infantry attacks, dropping projectiles Into every fifty-yard square of charred front, and repeating progress with 3 deadly, automatic, unceasing -pounding. Official reports obtained by French army officers from thelif own observers, from prisoners and from photographs made by aviators show that parts of oppos- ing lines which have been sub- jected to this unceasing bombard- ment, have been rendered unten- able.
