At' present the White forces are scab

there are .-tens of thousands of bitter

would welcome 'such - n. signal , for a

Stockholm, Sweden, July 18. The pro
posal of Xr. Fridtjof Kansen for feeding
Russia- has been revived and President
Wilson is expected to act upon it in the
near future. Magnus Swansoiu first assistant-
to Herbert C Hoover, visited
Christian! a, Korway, last week to con
fer with Dr. Naneen.
It appeared that the soviet govern
ment did not reject the original ( off er
Of food and medicine for soviet Russia.
Tchicherln, commissioner of foreign af
fairs, announced that the proposal of
Dr. ffahsen, accompanied by a letter
from Premier Lloyd George. President
Wilson and Premier Glemenceau, dated
April 17, reached Moscow only on May 4,
BEDS MAXS STATEMENT
His statement reads: - - - V .
"From the latest American wireless
sent from, Lyons-, we, learned . that - the
allied governments refused to transmit
the proposal to us by radio. Finally
we . received i it -through the German
government upon the request ot the Nor
wegian legation at Berlin. On May 7,
the soviet government declared - itself
ready to accept the purely humanitar
ian part of the original 'Hansen' offer,
regretting that the allies appended a
political condition the cessation of mili
tary operations by the soviet army. .; .
The soviet government is ready even
now to enter the negotiations for - the
purpose of ending hloodshed. - It replied
affirmatively to the proposal of a con
ference at Princes island, which was re
jected by its enemies, the counter revo
lutionary movements which are receiv
ing: entente aid. The allies, although
officially declaring their opposition to
Intervention, actually carry on an unre
strained interventionist policy. On . ac
count of this the cessation of military
operations presents a political problem
or tae nrst magnitude which tbe soviet
government is willing to discuss with
the - parties actually waging warfare
against us, that Is, the entente govern
ments or their empowered representa
tives.
"Being-. therefore ever-- ready to nego
tiate with the allies, the soviet govern

Paris. July 18. When Sergeant Leon
ard Pf ef fer ot Lake Forest HL, or
derly to Brigadier General Frank Par
ker, commanding the First infantry bri
gade, entered, the village of Luxemburg
in November, he was coming home. He
was born in the village of Luxgrund and
visited relatives whom he had not seen
since as a small boy ha left, home and
came to - America.
"Eventually he returned to France and
served for a time In the foreign le
gion, afterwards enlisting n the Araert j

native village was that with Frauleln
Marie Lutty, a playmate from his school
days. Marie had been waiting' for sev

why Pf ef fer secured leave last Week and
went to Luxemburg. -'

sen to supply food to Russia, which pre
sented purely a humanitarian and not a
political scheme, and Invited him to in
dicate the place and time for m meeting
of his representatives with those of so
viet Russia to consider - the questions
arising Out ot his proposal. The differ
ence drawn in our answer between the
proposal of Br. Nansen ' and the more
general political questions which we, can
discuss only with the interested govern
ments, was immediately interpreted in
allied ruling circles as a rejection n
our part of Dr. Nansen's proposal.
"The American wireless message from
Lyons on May 14 announced that the
answer of the soviet' government meant
the end ef the Nansen plan and that the
fate of Russia now rested with Admiral
Kolchak. On May 15 the American wire
less , declared that the refusal of the so
viet government to suspend military op
erations blocked the plan for supplying
food to Russia. ; These declarations of
the Amertcanwwireless roust be regard
ed as made f learly In bad faith since
the Russian government never refused to
end the bloodshed, saying mors t$an once
that It offered to enter negotiations con
cerning the question and reiterating this
again in the answer to Nansen. The dis
honest declarations of the American
wireless proved once roexe that the al
lied governments have no friendly, hu
manitarian intentions toward the toll
ing masses of soviet Russia and seek
only the destruction of the Russian rev
olution, disguising their. purpose under
hypocritical would-be humanitarian announcements.'
