Warsaw, Aug. 14. The Russians
attacking Warsaw have worked well
toward the rear of that city's defences
and are attacking Plonsk, within a
dozen miles of the Vistula, northwest
of the Polish capital, according to Fri
day night's official Polish communique,
available early to-day.
The statement says the enemy Is
advancing toward the Novo Georlevsk
Zegrje sector, north of Warsaw, and
that masses of Bolshevikl are attack
ing Nasielsk (twenty-two miles north
west of Warsaw) and Plonsk (six
teen miles west of Nasielsk and about
thirty-two miles northwest of War
saw). The communique announces that the
preliminary attacks upon these places
were repulsed by the Poles.
The roar of artillery on the battle
front could be plainly heard in War
saw. The Russians have brought up
artillery in the region of Radzymln,
Just south of the Bug.
President Pllsudskl In receiving a del
egation of citizens of Warsaw declared
to-day that the Government was firmly
decided to fulfill Its duty until th end.
He said the capital would be defended
until the last extremity.
A delesatlon from the Hungarian Par
liament visited the Vice-President of th.
Polish National Council of Defence and
renewed the Hungarian proposal to aid
Poland against the Bolshevikl. The
Hungarians are said to have offered to
place at Poland's disposal 50,000 men
and stores of arms and munitions, to
supply wheat and to furnish the service,
of the Hunsarian Red Cross.
Red. 31 Mllea From Waraaw.
On this northeastern front, along the
Bialystok road, tha Russians were
twenty-one miles from Warsaw, this
rhornlng's newspapers reported.
Before Saturday's dawn artillery
flashes were visible against the cloud,
to the north and northeast, and at time,
the sound of cannon could be heard.
People on the roof, of the highest
buildings watched the gun flashes until
the early hours.
To-day's communique ' concedes that
th. Poles withdrew further in the centra
of the Warsaw front, asserting it was
for the purpose of regrouping soldier,
who have fallen back upon the defetyc
line, less than twelve miles out.
But even more serious than the ap
proach in that direction, according to
observers, Is the situation northwest of
Waraaw, where some 2,000 Red cavalry
men are making rapid progress toward
the Vistula. The cavalry's right flank,
which follows the Prussian frontier, haa
been reinforced by Red Infantry soldier,
who have requisitioned the peasant.'
horses and are following closely upon
the heels of the cavalry.
The Poles sey there Is no chance of
the Bolshevikl crossing the Vistula
either below or above Warsaw, as th.
Russians have been doing habitually for
200 years In taking Warsaw from tha
west, and that all precautions In thesa
sections have been taken.
