' SAN DIEGO, Cal.. Aug. II. Colonel
A. J. Hanlon. commanding the army
aviation forces at Rockwell Field,
North Island, announced tonight that
two aviators from the Ninth aero
squadron, with base here, had been
missing; since 4 o'clock yesterday after-
Boon. They are second Lieutenants
Frederick B. Waterhouse of Weiser.
Idaho, and C. H. Connelly of San Diego.
The two aviators. Lieutenant Water
house actinic as pilot and Lieutenant
Connelly as observer on border patrol
work, started from Yuma. Ariz., to San
XMego at ll:t." A. M. yesterday.
Colonel Hanlon said his conclusion
ai that the aviators had been forced
to make a landing, possibly below the
Mexican line, near Jacumba. in San
Iiego county.
Fifteen machines were sent out from
North Island today to try to find the
missing officers, but all returned with
out having found a trace of them.

the treaty was not laid before the peace
conference. The French are wondering
if there may be further secret treaties
of which even Premier Ciemenceau does
not know.
While the newspapers severely cen
sure the British policy they point out
that France is partly to blame for hav
ing permitted England full sway in the
near east where there are huge French
Interests. While the Persian treaty
furnishes a topic for general discus
sion just now. there are questions quite
as delicate which hold up other treat
ies. The conference seems to be groping
in the dark for a solution of various
problems. Grave news comes from
Silesia and Poland.
Because the conference seemed too
weak to take a definite stand in regard
to Silesia the Germans, Poles and Spar
taclsts are today fighting the matter
out with the result that coal produc
tion is seriously curtailed. There is talk
of sending allied troops into Silesia.
- Another problem awaiting definite
solution concerns Hungary, Roumania
and the small new states in central Eu
rope. It is acknowledged that all these
matters are calculated to retard the
establishment and the functioning of
the league oT nations. Colonel House
is reported to have been busy for some
time with the British conferees in an
effort to have the league in working
order as soon as the treaty with Ger
many shall have been ratified by the
allied parliaments.

MINSK. Aug. 21. (Special cable.)
Following is the translation from the
Yiddish of Henry Morgenthau's procla
mation, which was dropped from air
planes by Polish aviators before the
entry of Polish troops into Minsk. I
picked up the leaflet from which the
translation was made in the streets of
Minsk, after the entry:
"To the Jewish population of Minsk:
"I take the liberty of asking you to
observe perfect quiet during the entry
of the Polish troops, and in no event
to help the bolshevik forces. Partic
ularly I urge the young not to meet
the Polish army with any acts of
"Outrages and pogroms can be avoid
ed only if we Jews do not give the
roles any reason for starting them.
The Polish government and the com
manders of the Polish army wish to
avoid any outrage, as do our friends In
America and England. Only by friendly,
mutual co-operation on both sides can
pogroms be avoided."
It was signed. "Henry Morgenthau.

I learn that the bolshevik commis
