London, March 21.—By a flanking attack from the extreme west the crown prince is now trying to force the abandonment of French positions on the northwest front of Verdun ac- cordinf to Paris dispatches today. The German offensive west of Malan- court followed the failure of frontal attacks to break the French front west of the Meuse. The crown prince is now applying the familiar "nut cracker strategy on the narrow sector ten miles west of the citadel. The German thrust near Malancourt, eight miles west of the Meuse, was accompanied by an advance of German troops from Regneville, along the river bank. The plan evident," was to squeeze the French out of the Villages of Cumieres and Chattan- court behind Dead Man Hill and force a retirement on the northwestern forts of Verdun. The German attacks around Malancourt met with some success dispatches from Paris admitted today. By the use of flaming liquods and a heavy artillery fire the Germans penetrated French trenches directly west of Malancourt. The attempt to advance the eastern jaw of the "nutcracker" on the | bank of the Meuse met with a fail- ' ure. A German force that moved ' southward from Regneville was I caught in the flooded lowlands by ; a hot front French artillery on the i east bank of the Meuse and driven hack with serious losses. I'ncle Sam has not been slow in observing the proved valued of aeroplanes in war work, as demonstrated in Kurope, and sent fliers with the expeditionary forces into Mexico to endeavor to spy on Villa's movements.

San Antonio, Tex., March 21.— "The next few hours may tell the story." This was General Funston's curt comment today on dispatches relating Villa's clash at Cruces with Carranza troops coming north from Chihuahua, the bandit's defeat and subsequent flight north directly toward three southbound American cavalary columns. With these detachments of the United States soldiers headed for Lake Babicora, El Valle and Carmen, any effort on Villa's part to escape to the north seems effectually spikedt A hard night's ride brought the American soldiers close to the quarry today. While army headquarters has no definite word that the commander of the Carranza column is formally keeping with the American general, Pershing, through his own Bcouts evidently is being kept advised of the former's movements. "On the map it looks like Villa might be ln hot water," remarked General Funston. "But we must not forget he still has free movement over a big lot of country and that he knows every trail and cowpath in those mountains." According to the best information at army headquarters Villa will make every effort to slip past the southwest corner of Lake Babicora and dash for the Sierra Madre mountains in the region about Guerrero. BY WM. G. MlKI'IIIKll I'nited l*resis Staff Correspondent. Paris, March 21.—Admiral Von Tirpitz has become a physical and mental wreck by brooding over the deaths of scores of his closest friends in the German navy according to reports in general circulation in diplomatic and military circles in Lucerne and Berne. A high Swiss military authority credits the reports, gave me some of the information that has reached him recently, just before I left Berne. "Von Tirpitz," he said, "resembles in sensitiveness the great Japanese military leader who, overwhelmed by the memory of vast losses of Japanese soldiers he sent against Port Ar thur committed suicide upon the death of the late Japanese emperor. "Von Tirpitz has died a thousand deaths since the war began. He has bade farewell to hundreds of splendid young submarine officers who went out to perish miserably under the water. The code among German submariners requires that they shoot themselves when the situation of their T boat become hopeless. Von Tirpitz has pictured to himself—for such is the nature of his mentality too many terrible underwater scenes involving his friends. It is known beyond a doubt that Von Tirpitz felt himself living in a world of horrors. Even the kaiser himself was unable to calm his self-reproach. "German military men saj the Lusitania incident was the beginning of Von Tirpitz's breakdown. He did not visit the admiralty offices for three days after the liner and its helpless human cargo went down. Each new sinking of passenger boats only increased his depression. His subordinates made it a practice not to report the disappearance of submarines unless Von Tirpitz demanded to know the whereabouts of such and such an undersea boat. "The strain became too much. Both the foreign and German newspapers —the latter boastingly—connected the name of Von Tirpitz with submarine horrors. The thing became too personal. Von Tirpitz was a man of magnificent physique before the war but it simply broke him down. y By I'nited Press. i Berlin, March 21.—Austrian troops have evacuated the t'sciezvo bridgehead and trenches northwest after) defending the positions for sixj months against Russian attacks, thei Austrian war office admitted in a statement telegraphed here today The position had been battered into a heap of ruins by heavy pound-; ing of Russian artillery and recent fighting.

"The Russians in the morning had succeeded in blasting a breach 300 yards wide.'' said the Austrian war office statement "Nevertheless our soldiers, though attacked by eightfold superior forces, still held their positions in spite of all losses during seven hours of the most violent infantry and artillery- fire. :i VILLISTA 10,000 ARE IDLE.
