When the Russian "Muzhik trades his machine-gun to the Germans for a drink of
vodka, as many are doing, he comes near typifying the act of his Bolsheyik superiors ia
giving up their military .power for an intoxicating dream of anarchistic liberty. Like
them too, he may hit off the transaction with some fine phrase that seems to. sanctify
his murderous bargain.
Declaring' piously that they tan' not continue a war -with the German -and Austrlai
workers, they release those unhappy workers for transfer to the Western front where they,
may soon be thrown in masses at the Allied guns :with far more .disastrous, results- to
themselves than if they had remained in the. quiet trenches of Poland. '

But, boys and girls, what Is our own
