Decided Changes In Rus-
sian Situation Expected
Within Few Weeks.
Fall Of Petroerad Will
Enable The Allies To
PARIS France May (By the As-
sociated Press). Specialists on
Russian subjects attached to various
allied delegations at the peace confer-
once expect changes in the Russian
situation within the next few weeks.
The Finnish movement which has
been threatening Petrograd and which
has been shrouded with mystery is
now well defined. Gen. Cdenitch and
4000 Russians operating with him
have the support of the Finnish gov-
ernment and troops and have re-
cruited large numbers of Russian
peasants who have become tired of
Bolshevik requisitions. Gen. Udeaitch
controls the southern end of the Kola
railway. The escape of the Bolshevik!
operating against allied forces in the
Kola peninsula has been made impos-
sible and communication between the
Moscow government and the Mur-
mansk coast has been cut off.
Under the direction of Gen. Udea-
itch the residents of Karelia dis-
trict are apparently preparing to
launch a movement looking to their
annexation to Finland. This would
give Finland the Kola railway and a
northern outlet tc the Arctic.
Entente Backs UdenltchT
The Russian commision working for
a united Russia here is trying to
block that step. Many persons be-
lieve the entente powers are en-
couraging the Udenitch movement. If
he should occupy Petrograd. the re-
victualling of the cttv by the allies
would be easy and the apparent aban-
donment of resent plans of re victual-
ling Petrograd under neutral auspices
is reararoea as an indication tnat tne
entente experts the Bolshevik! soon to
be forced to withdraw to Moscow.

Disillusionment And Disappointment
At Failure Of League Of Nations
DARIS France May fc There seems
1 to be an impression in America that
opposition to the league of nations
comes from reactionary quarters In
continental Europe and that the mass
of people in all countries believed in
and accepted this document.
This was the obvious belief of the
president when be appealed to the
Italian people over the beads of their
government but today the response of
the Italian people Is unmistakable.
They have followed their government
with the same enthusiasm and na-
BtBsttr that the German people--narched
with its government in the
crucial days of July 1914. There has
been revealed again how Impossible
it is to rally a country to abstract
Justice when national aspiration is
All Distrust League.
Moreover it is now clear tisat If
conservative Europe always distrusted
the league of nations. Socialist and
radical Europe is now equally op-
posed. "Humajite" speaking for the
Socialists of France says today: "We
declare then once for all. that the
proletariat affirms its bitter disillu-
sionment. We are not astonished that
the international Socialist conference
at this moment meeting at Amsterdam
also unanimously rejects this society
I am convinced that a measure of
hope for the future of the league of
nations survives ir ureat oniain
where conditions in a degree recall
those of the United States since Great
Britain like the United States is
separated by an ooeam rampart from
the continent that on tne continent
the covenant of the league of nations
has already become as meaningless as
tne agreements at rne uague.
The Fatal Blow.
The Italian gesture which has pro
duced the crisis from which we have
not yet recovered was a fatal blow.
Wars now going on In the east were
unanswerable illustrations of the in-
capacity of the peace conference to
deal with Bolshevism.
Continental Europe conscious that
its necessities its age-long traditions.
Its peculiar problems have not been
understood. Is unmistakably in the
throes or reaction against idealistic
solutions for what It regards as total
ly practical problems.

National Unity First
The last four months have clearly
and unmistakably demonstrated that
the peoples of Europe quite as much
as and perhaps more than their gov
ernments are controlled dv old con
ceptions of national unity political
security individual economic exist
ence and development. They have
demonstrated that France and .Eng-
land will accept no league of nations
that does not carry with It the spe-
cific additional guarantee by Great
Britain and the United States against
a new attack by Germany; that Italy
will not resign national aspirations
and sacrifice Flume; that the Poles
accept no compromise in or out of the
league of nations which deprives them
of unquestioned ownership of Dantzig:
that Jugo-Slavla prefers another war
to any compromise along the Adriatic
It is the growing realization of
these facts which created the atmos-
phere In which the league of nations
covenant was adopted. It was the
realisation of these facts which led so
many of those present to describe the
sessions as a mockery. Aa all events
however permanently accurate the
contemporary conception may be. no
one can mistake Paris judgment upon
