The allies have invaded Austria. Italian and Ameri
can forces according to a diplomatic dispatch received in
Washington today have landed near the great Austrian
naval base of Pola.
This gives the allies a foothold on Austrian soil be
tween the enemy armies retreating from Italy and the
. Pola is situated on the Adriatic, at the tip of the Is
trian peninsula, 55 miles south of Trieste and 45 miles
southwest of Fiume. It has one of the finest harbors in
Europe and was the chief naval base of Austria contain
ing great dockyards and the headquarters of the admiral-1
ty. It is strongly fortified. It has a population of 50,000.
Seizure of Pola will enable the allies to overrun Istria,
menacing Trieste and Fiume and opening the way for a
real drive behind the Austrians retreating from Italy. It
also gives the allies a strong strategic position in the rear
of the Austrian Balkan armies. Vienna is 250 miles north
east of Pola.-, " . ..'..'"
Whether any of the Austrian fleet remains at Pola
is not definitely known. Conflicting reports have told
o f the fleet being removed to Fiume and of mutinous
marines seizing the ships at Pola and turning them over
to the Jugo-Slavs. ' . s v
, The allied drive in Italy, according to dispatches re
ceived by the Italian embassy at Washington, has result
