Yu jfgj Experts Say
jB: 1 "WASHINGTON, April 0. Reap-
M pearanco of the pink boll worm in
E K .Texas and discovery of the Insect in

' The drastic quarantine now being

I B the review stated, "a new arid very
Wtr serious phase of the situation dcvel

City Crowded With Poverty
Stricken and Humming
With War Activity
WARSAW, April 6 Warsaw is hum
ming with war activity and is crowded
to Its very doors with hordes of poverty-stricken
refugees from tho areas
for which the Poles and Bolshevikl are
fighting. Travelers say it is the most
crowded city in eastern Europe. The
population is estimated to have in
creased from 800,000 to 1,300,000 since'
tho world war began. '
Everywhere there are officers and
soldiers. Military automobiles, trac
tors and various other vehicles of war
traverse the streets all day, and most
of the night. The cafe life is as bright
and gay as ever, but the restaurants
and theatres close at 10 p. m. to save
food, light and labor. The refugees
from Ihe war-stricken areas began
streaming Into the city about a year
ago, and have been coming ever since,
hoping to find food and places to
sleep. The problem of providing for
them has baffled the city officials.
In the poorer districts, basements.!
which for generations wore used for'
storage purposes have been used for
refugees' sleeping quarters, in in
stances 15 to 20 persons, and even
more sleep on a basement floor, on
straw. Others have found shelter in
stables or in buildings intended for
schools. Many of these refugees are
women, with children, who have come
out of the east virtually without funds.
During the day, these people are part
ly supplied with food by the municipal
ity or some of tho welfare organiza
tions. Many exist only by begging.
Warsaw's tenements, always crowd
ed as New York's case side has been
for years, are jammed with humanity
as never before, and during tho severe
winter weather, when there was an
epidemic of influenza, hero old men
and women and children died by the
hundreds every day in this land of the
poor.
City officials see no relief in sight
until warmer weather comes, when
they hope the people -will gradually
begin leaving for the country to work
on farms.

i premier, however, deplore the fact
the allies are not participants in
the movement
"France will inforce respect of
the Versailles' treaty but the allies
will not help to do it," is a caption
appearing in today's edition of the
Oeuvre, the inference drawn being
that tlje purely platonic nature of
the allied support is due to fail
ure on the part of M. Millerand
and his aides to meet the exigen
cies of the situation.
"Pertinax," political editor of
the Echo de Paris, says more con
crete support will be forthcoming
as a result of the premier's state
ment issued last night He says
M. Millerand "feels capable of con
vincing President Wilson, himself,
if he is still guided by rules of
logc."
"Mr. Wilson's memorandum of
March 29," thew riter continues,
"said dispatch of more German
troops into the Ruhr region must,
in his opinion, be justified by
the course of events. We do not
expect passive acceptance of an
accomplished fact from our allies,
but te confident assistance to
Which they have accustomed us."
Premier Millerand's note on the
subject of occupying German cities
east of the Rhine, declared the
.Berlin government, "had given
way to pressure by the militarist
r jpjirlv,'. and .that the sending ofj
-goeim'm;htli'o"o,i5s"iuTb-iflid" neft-rt
tral zone was not justified by the
situation. It was pointed out that
the movement of French forces
would be of a "coervlve and pre
cautionary nature, and could not
be deferred, and the premier de
clared if Germany had carried out
the disarmament clauses of the
Versailles' treaty neither the Kapp
revolt nor the Ruhr revolution
would have occurred.
