ABERAVON DISTRICT SHIRKERS. In connection with the Aberavon recruit- inr area. which incliides Aberavon, Port Talbot, Margam, and the Dnffryn and Afon Valleys up to Glyncorrwg and Blaengwynfl," embracing a population of 35,000, the number of grouped men this week since the re-opening of the Derby scheme has been only 50, which Is very small considering the large number of known eligible young shirkers who are in the district. a number of whom openly declare that they &re on the look-out for some of the good jobs which will be vacated by those irho have joined. During the ftt part of the, "Vxby group aoheme 2,030 re en were fI'our:oe. id previous to the Derby eoheme S>000 were TOP DOG." ( OUR POSITION ¡ TO-DAY. GERMANY READY FOR BEATING. | (Reuter's ■Srecial Servins.^ I BRITISH HEADQUARTERS, FRANCE, Jan. 11. B„i.tti. ng at lunch to-day in the hospitable headquarters of a certain division, where the roar and rattle wavering along the fight- ing line necessitated talking in sustained crescendo, the following statement was made to me:- Anyont3 who reaiiy believes that the position is the same to-day as it was a year ago, because the line is very much the same has no knowledge of the truth. Then we were desperately hoid.ng bark the German push for Cala's. To-day the Boches are 'Touching Offensively opposite the iop-dog. wOnd",rètlg w hen he will make his next spring. Germany wiii have to get rid <p her other adventures before she can tali l"ut preparing for another offensive in i; lenders. "h-e truth is that we have now got Ger- many ready for beating. Top-dog, and the n,t inove on the board to us: that is the position to-day on this front, and none know it oott: than the Boches themselves. We know their dispositions aiu! strength facing us to a nicety, ju.t as I have very little doubt thev know nuiv. Whon 'We Are Ready. It is because ot this knowledge that they ask uotrrrg better than for us to leave them ajone; t-o carry on the trench business in a passive way. But this is not top-dog's game. I cannot, naturally, give vou any- thing approaching- to definite figures, but I think you may t ike it fht we outnumber the Geamans. e can taKe their first- line trenches any time ire want to. But. strategy has to look considerably byond the business of bi.exkn.ig through,' which a good niany folks at home really seem to think is the only thing necessary to finish the struggle. The break through is I h Coming ail right, but not until we art ready to move definitely from this not uncomfortable chateau. It has become a Eurt of stock phrase now to say that for every shell the enemy sends us we return him two As a matter cf fact we often do a great rLw.i more than this. Then, again. n->t only do we out- number them in our fie id and heavy artil- lery, but there is a growing confidence on the part of our gunners that our weapons are better than theirs. The enemy has, in fact unmistakably passed its zenith, and is now on the down grade.. I e are still steadily soaring. I think it iS well that people at home should know the truth, because they will then face more cheerfully the big burden they are hemg asked t? -houM-r. We have J reached our present position at colossal cost and sacrifice. But we must not relax one tithe of the efforts by which this has been attained. That is the price of ultimate victory.
