A supply of provisions from the
United tates has arrived, the des
vLe)aders of the Murman coast
people recently applied to the
consulates of the United States
ami' the Allies for protection. Tjiis
is the section in which, last week's
despatches said, a state of war
had been declared and conditions
were such that it might' create a
iciash wth the United States and
the Allies and Russia and Fin
land. It is thought in official circles
that the . Murman coast may be
one of the fields of operation un
der the reported new policy of
the United States toward Russia
which it is believed has been ap
proved by President Wiiscm.
Allied and . American forces
have been affording this section
of Russia protection but the
special reason for the landing was
the protection of supplies and
materials landed there wh'e Rus
sia was still at-war with Germany.
