SPEAKER REVIEWS
RUSSIA’S OUTLOOK
Dr. Strakhovsky of G. U. Tells
Rotarians of Soviet
Conditions.
The recovery of Russia and estab
lishment of closer relations between
that country and the United States
was predicted by Dr. Leonid Strakhov
sky. professor of history in the For
eign Service School of Georgetown Uni
versity, who fled Russia while under
sentence of death by the Bolshevists,
before a luncheon of the Rotgry Club
at the Willard Hotel yesterday.
Dr. Strakhovsky sought to refute
"myths” regarding Russia, which he
declared existed in the minds of the
average American. The first of these
was that any relationship existed be
tween the revolution against the Czar
in March. 1917, and that which pre
cipitated Russia into Bolshevism in No
vember. The former revolution at
tempted to establish an era of freedom
in Russia, he declared, and failed due
to the fact that it was inapproDriately
undertaken in time of war. The sec
ond was the idea which exists in Amer
ica, that Russia is more economically
prosperous under the Soviet regime
than under the Czar, and finally that
the present government is based upon
principles of democracy.
In order to show that Russia today
is under the most complete form of
dictatorship, Dr. Strakhovsky pro
ceeded to sketch to his audience the
machinery of the Soviet government.
That the Proletariat party has not the
support of the Russian people Dr. Stra
khovsky is convinced, and he believes
that they have been able to maintain
themselves in power only through the
lethargy and disorganization of the
Russian masses. The actual number
of confirmed Communists in Russia
was estimated by Dr. Strakhovsky at
less than a million. He emphatically
declared that Russia would live to free
herself from Bolshevism and that she
would eventually be bound to the
United States by closer and ever in
creasing ties.
At the request o' the members of
the Rotary. Dr. Strakhovsky related
some of his experiences during the
revolution, which included a seeptacu
lar escape from prison when under
sentence of execution in 1918, and a
flight on skiis across the snow to Fin- j
land, 200 miles away. .
Dr. Strakhovsky is the son of a for
mer Russian governor, and twice was
wounded in action against the Bolshe
visits when serving with Wrangell’s
"white” army in the Crimea. He was

Oldest Fire “Engine”- Shown.
England’s oldest known fire “en
gine” has just found a home in -the
London Museum. It is a large oval
wooden tub, and the water was pumped
through an iron pipe in the middle.
Originally It rested on a carriage with
solid wooden wheels, but these have
disappeared. The "engine” was made
in London in 1678 for a town in Bed
fordshire.

for the next four years.”
“The power to voice a protest will be
stripped from them,” he said.
Mr. Huff asserted that President Hoo
ver's stand against the export debenture
proposal was Anal proof that the ad
ministration "was determined to deal
with the farm relief problem without
reference to surplus production.”
The farm official contended co-oper
ative organizations would be forced to
surrender many rights to the Federal
Farm Board which it is proposed to set
up. and that the co-operatives in effect
would become "wards of the Govern
ment.”
"The fatal defects in this plan, in
my opinion,” he continued, “are that
it sets up no standards for the co
operatives, nor as to price level.”

“BUDDY POPPY” GIVEN -
HOOVER BY VETERAN
Comdr. Carver of Boston Telia
President of Purposes of An
nual Drive.
President Hoover yesterday received
the first 1929 “Buddy poppy” from Eu
gene P. Carver, Jr., of Boston, Mass.,
commander-in-chlef of the Veterans of
Foreign Wars. The presentation was
made at the White House, when the
poppy was pinned on the lapel of the
President’s coat by little Bertie Boyer,
whom Comdr. Carver lifted in his arms
for this part of the ceremony.
The President was reminded that this
poppy was made by disabled veterans
at Veterans’ Hospital 81 in New York
under the auspices of the Veterans of
Foreign Wars. The President heartily
Indorsed the annual Buddy poppy drive
as a “worthy enterprise."
Prior to the pinning of the poppy on
his coat the President gave Comdr.
Carver the following indorsement; “The
annual Buddy poppy campaign under
the auspices of the Veterans of Foreign
Wars is a fitting symbol of the sacrifice
of those who died in the service of our
country and should remind us of the
obligations and sacrifice demanded of
all good citizens in time of peace.
“The fact that the manufacture of
these poppies gives employment to dis
abled ex-service men in the hospitals
and elsewhere adds to the worthiness
of the cause. I am glad to give my
hearty indorsement to this worthy
cause.”
Comdr. Carver also told My. Hoover
that the funds will be used for the care
of the veterans’ widows and orphans.
JUDGE SAYS ROMANS
KNEW BOOKKEEPING
DUNDALK, Ireland C4*).—lrish farm
ers would do well to take lessons from
the old Romans, who were the greatest
traders and the best fanners the world
has ever known, said Judge Devltt dur
ing a court case here.
The Roman, he said, would consider
It a disgrace If he was charged with not
keeping accounts. To say that to an I
old Roman was to charge him with I
being & slipshod, knavish, idle fellow.
“When a farmer comes Into court and
tries to set his memory against a busi
ness man’s account books, he has a poor
chance of winning his case,” declared
the judge.
