U reports ih..t the Austria- Hungary
government is eayer to maintain dip-

States is corroborated by information
reaching here from Vienna. The
M'or.g in.pre-sr.ion prevails that Aus-

s.ririf.ce whirh t rrgards as reason-
abl. to avoid a rupture although such
action apparently would mean flying
in the face of Germany. And even

WAR TO F.XTEND
OVER ANOTHER WINTER
1 ''"ih March 2 -The war may
easily extend over another winter as
lar as purely military factors ure
concerned accordiiiK l a statement
by Cenera' Krederick 1! Maurice di-
re tor of military operations for the
Imperial Herman staff in an interview
uiveii to the A SM. ii lateil Press
Heiioi'iil Maura e is an authority on
iniblan hi lo y and has been chosen
as Hie Inoioaphcr of Hubert K ee in
a series published under the title of
"Makers of ihe N.ioi-onl Century."
In his opinion there is llllle differ-
"i. e between lho strategy followed
by ihe i . inn and. us in the war be-
tween Hi" stales ami the strategy
l is ihe (treat struuRle of
"ll. . men over in the trenches."
said Oeneral .Maurice "who see only
a briel and i Innate purl of the not no I
op. rations a ie inclined m assert that
the major principles of warfare have
chanced hut this h true of strategy
which. ii irt I i ii c to Napoleon
i ha nucs every ten years a period
whii had he lived today would have
I n induced lo five years. This Is
due to Hi" increased Inventive poxver
over the linn when Napoleon fought.
"People wonder frequently why.
wiih Hie superior resources in man-
power undoubtedly possessed by the
allies that more progress toward vic-
tory is not made. The reason lies In
favor of strategy which made your
war between the states so long and
enabled Napoleon to keep his back to
the wall so bmi; when it took the
collusion of all Kuropp to hold him.
"Oeneral Hubert K I.ep and Napol-
eon worked on Interior lands from a
central position and they hud the
u.'iiius to make the best possible use
that this Rave them.
"The Henna ns understood this
bum of strntfRv so well that even In
p. at e time their economic necessity
turned to military needs. In their
ir.uispo: liiiion alone the result of this
polh y can be seen.
"I see no indication of what has
be n assi iti'd that the Germans are
wit'ndiawiiiK at some place aliins our
front because of a desire to force
ope. i fiuhtiiiK. This movement is u
retirement forced upon .them Tliey
do not like it any more than we do.
You may he assured no army likes to
retire and therefore it Is certain the
Commas will make an effort sonie-
