parties who were behind the Medford
Press three years ago, which ran for
two months, and the Medford Amer

part of the Maritime (Province appear
to have completed the organization
of their army, for since .the begin

troying railroads, attacking trains
and .capturing stations.
About 1600 Bolshevists, early in
the morning of June 3, attacked the
Japanese garrison at Ipolltovka and
caused some casualties. The total
strength of the enemy in the region
of Soochan, south of Ipolltovka, is
estimated at from 4,000 to 5,000.
Their headquarters seem to be locat
ed In the neighborhood of Flolovka.

17-YEAR LOCUSTS HIT
THE EL PASO SECTION
Ml Paso, Texas, July 23. What
city, etaXe and federal experts here
agree is the seventeen year locust
has Invaded the El Paso section of
the 'Rio Crande valley. Thus far,
however, the insects have done no
harm to growing crops, and it Is not
believed they will appear In devastat
(Reports of the presence of the el-
cades were first received from fish
ermen down the river, who complain
ed that the locusts were making uch
a noise they were frightening ail the
flah away. -
Specimens of the males show the
cnaractensttc "W" sign, -which su-i
porstltion Interperts as meaning
"war." This marking is made of the
triangular markings which form the
'Middle" through Whloh the locust
makes his "music." '
The damage done, by locusts Is
confined to the Injury to trees when
the female lays her eggs. The eggs,
hatching under the tender back of
young trees, causes, it to split until
the tiny grub emerges from the cra'ck
drops to the ground and burrows far
down, to see the light no more until
It comes trp17 years later. Old
trees are not injured by the insects,
nor do the cricades devour other
growing tilings according to entymol-oglsts.
