"If Knglaud persists alone in favor
ing departure from Salonika," said a
high French offieinl today, "then the

aid the Serbs."
Sir John French, of England, is un
derstood to have suggested the Aband
onment, while. General Joffro and oth
ers objected to leaving the Serbs to
the mercy of the Teutons.
France has known for some time
that Knglaud was dissatisfied with Bal

parliament have oponlv called the Salo
nika expeditions useless, too lata and
too small to aid the Serbs.

SEPARATE PEACE FOR

By J. W. T. Mason.

New York, Dec. 6. The possibility
of serious disagreements among the nl
lies is developing with Great Britain's
reluctance to mnke a major military ef
fort in the Balkans. Russia and Serbia
at least aro urging redoubled resist
ance. France, however much her Russian in
vestments might incline her to support
them in these urgings, must secretly
approve the British attitude, if it
means a greater concentration of forces
on the western front. For, certainly,
France and Belgium cannot bo freod
by driving the central powers' troops
out of Sorbin. On the other hand, if
the central allies dominate the Balkans
nt the end of the wnr, Russia will con
sider herself defented.
At this point, there enters tho pos
sibility thnt Russia will conclude a sep
arate peace to save her prcstigo at
least to an extent, in the near enst.
It is probable that 700,000 central al
