WASHINGTON, Attpust 15
Complete severance of the few
vestiges of diplomatic relations
which have existed "between the
United States and the Bolshevist
soviet srovcrnment at Moscow arc
indicated in the reports to-the.
state department of the course
tha't has been pursued by United
States Consul General to Mos
cow. DeWitt C. Toole Jr.
Consul Toole has turned over
his duties at MV&fow to the Swe
dish consulate, the message an-,
; ionce. Jras destrqyed his code
Ixjok and has demanded from, the
soviet government at Moscow
safe conduct to the United States.
The olhcial despatch containing
this information is dated August,
2, and is the first word heard from
the consul since he joined with
the consuls for the Allied nations
in demanding an explanation ,of
the statement of Lcnine that a
state of war existed between tnc
Russian soviet government and
the co-belligerents against the
Central Towers. It is assumed
the reply was unsatisfactory, aid
such as to make impossible the
marritcnance of the shred, of dip
lomatic relations which had up to
Uvat time' been preserved.
ULTIMATUM TO FINLAND
Oher reports which have
reached the state department
from sources which are. consider
ed reliable say that the German
government has addressed an ul
timatum to the French govern
ment requiring the Finnish army
to prepare to march against the
forces of the co-belligerents on
the Murmansk coast within two
As Finland has appealed to the
United States through northern
Europe neutrals for assistance in
the way of fund and supplies, giv
ing the assurance that time of
these would reach Germany, the
position in which I' inland 1 1 1 n I -its.clf
placed is untenable. It must
obey the behest of Germany and
go without food supplies and the
hope of .securing any or must ex
