that it desires to participate actively

on authority to-day, have been made by
I'hina in view of the Russian collapse
and the Italian rever.ies. i hma. ahigh
authority declared, stands ready to
?ransprrt an army to Kurope, nnd is
prepared to imMediately dispatch large
numbera of men for work behind the
line* in r rance.
"f'hina," this authority asserted. "has
informed the Allirs that she is willing
to do anything in the war in vi?w of
the Russian and Italian situations, and
that her roopcration will be limited
only by the assistance given to her.
China has not the funds necessary for
? rcatinp armies and provisioning them,
hut she has men and raw materials
whieh she will fumish in unlimited
number and quantity."
