A USTRIA, bankrupt and in every
way distressed, has become a bone
of serious contention between Italy
aid tl little entente. Plans for an
ecionic union between Italy and Aus
tria, which might result later in the
virtual absorption of the latter, have
been put forward, and are said to
have the approval of Great Britain
and France. The scheme would re
lieve Austria's most pressing needs
and give her an outlet to the Adriatic,
aind wotild satIsfy the growing Italian
sentilent for expansion. But Jugo.
Slavia, Italy's rival for control of the
Adriatie, doesn't want Italy strength
ened, and furthermore-she wants to
grab the Austrian district of Kagen
firt. Rumors that Serbian irregulars
were about to invade that region
stirred up a lot of excitement in Eu
ropean capitals, ani1d Jugo-Slavia was
constrained to deny any intention of
invading the district and to promise
to restrain the irregulars. The
Czechioslovaks wecre credited with a
hankering to seize the northern prov
inces of Austria in case of dismemb~er
ment of the succession republic. Buda
pest heard that both these little en
tente nations were planning to send
trooips through Hungarian territory
into Austria, and Count Andrassy,
cliut Irman of thle Hungarian foreign af
fairs commiittec.edcared Hungary
would resist this, addinig that Hun
