PUZZLING OVER THE PROBLEM
Allied Commanders do Not Know
Where Germany's Principal At Attack
tack Attack will be Made, but They
are Ready to Meet It
Washington, March 2. WTiere are
Germany's "Lost Divisions?"
That is the big puzzle on which the
whole effort of the French and Eng English
lish English intelligence offices is centered.
That is the puzzle on which allied
aviators are busy. And it is the an answer
swer answer to that puzzle that British and
French and American soldiers have
sought for the past two weeks in ev every
ery every trench raid and reconnaissance
they have carried out.
The Allies know that Germany is
planning a tremendous offensive on
the western front.
Through the activity of their intel intelligence
ligence intelligence divisions, the aero scouts and
trench raiders, the Allies know the -location
of every unit of the kaiser's
great army with the exception of ap approximately
proximately approximately a score of divisions.
Those are the "Lost Divisions" that
the Allies seek, the finding of which
might unlock the whole secret of Ger Germany's
many's Germany's point of attack.
Allied experts agree that there has
been no battle in this war in which
the results could not have been
changed by the bringing into action
of a dozen unexpected divisions. That
is why it is so necessary for the Al Allies
lies Allies to know, before the Germans
strike, just where these lost divisions
will be brought into action.
Extreme massing of men and ma materials
terials materials at Zeebrugge and along a front
of 20 miles in Flanders, where the
lines begin, and information secured
from prisoners indicate that the big
attempt is to be made there, with
Calais as the immediate objective.
The capture of Calais would put
into German hands the French port
through which the bulk of Britain's
men and materials move into France.
Tremendous terminals and port facil facilities

With Calais held by the enemy,
England's whole system of supply
would be disrupted, her line of com communication

she got them there. Calais loss -would
be a serious blow.-
Of course steps have been taken by
the allied commanders to meet the
expected onslaught. Men and mate-1
rials have been concentrated at the
points where information indicates
increased pressure may be brought.
But the big question still remains:
"Just where will the drive develop?"
When the "Lost Divisions" are found,
that question will be answered.
Although increasingly strong at attempts

The publication of the city mana

some people the belief that the plant
has gone to the demnition bowwows

idea is erroneous. Mr. Johnston says
the plant is a good plant and has as
good machinery as can be had. He
says that the faults noted are minor
ones, that all can -be corrected, that
the city can correct most of them
with its own workmen, and when this
is done, that Ocala will have just as
good a plant as can be found. So far
from giving up the plant as a costly

Specials at the Temple Theater
"The Medicine Man," a Triangle
picture featuring Roy Stewart, will
be shown at the Temple tonight.
Three- big attractions have been
booked for the Temple next week.
"The Indiscreet Corinne," a Triangle,
will be shown Monday afternoon. It
stars the bewitching Olive Thomas, in
private life Mrs. Jack Pickford, who
made a big hit recently in the picture
"Broadway Arizona," in which the
desperate western .lover captured one
of the stage's greatest favorites and
took her to Arizona, where she finally
came to love the Broadway Arizona.
It promises to be a splendid picture,
as all of Olive Thomas' pictures are,
and your only chance to see it is at
the Monday matinee, for the Red
Cross lecture will be given there that
An even bigger attraction will be
seen there Tuesday night in "The
Cinderella Man." The wistful appeal
of Mae Marsh, known wherever mo motion
tion motion pictures are shown, finds remark remarkable
able remarkable opportunity in the strong human
interest situations of this picture. The
amazing versatility of Miss Marsh
which changes her characterizations
so radically from play to play, makes
"The Cinderella Man" quite as re refreshing
freshing refreshing as anything she has ever
done. Mae Marsh will probably draw
the biggest crowds in the future; for
her acting in "Intolerance" was noth nothing
ing nothing less than wonderful. She also
starred in the Birth of a Nation.
But the best has been saved for the
end of the week, when the liltle star,
Marguerite Clark, with whom several
Ocala people are now acquainted, will
star in "The Seven Swans." For the
benefit of many Marion county pat patrons
rons patrons who are very desirous of seeing
this picture, it will be shown at the
Temple on both Thursday and Friday.
