Allies Urge U. S. To Favor Intervention In Siberia Before German Peace Move EXPANSION IN RUSSIA WILL BE ASKED IN FOE PROPOSAL Germany is preparing for a vig orous peace move at the expense of Russia. To meet this anticipated move a tremendous effort is being made to bring about unity of purpose be tween the United States, France, and England on the cvestion of aid for Russia. England and France today are carrying on the strongest pos sible propaganda to swing Ihe United States Government to favor American-Japanese or allied inter vention. President Waits. President Wilson Is said, upon ex ccllent authority, to have made no change In his determination not to Intervene in Russia now. lie Is de termined to save Russia, if possible, from Germany. But he wants a con certed allied effort that will succeed when made. It appears likely now that this country will soon suggest an allied mission to Ko to Russia, mingle with the people there and try to learn just how Russia needs and wants to be helped. The need for some agreed policy Is admitted Cermany, by launching a peace offensive, offering to give up Belgium, northern France and make satisfactory settlements with Italy provided she be allowed to expand In Russia, would confront the French and British governments with a very serious problem. .

Due largely to the fact that the Naval Academy authorities took steps to warn youths who wished to be mid shipmen to have themselves thor-, oughly examined physically before! coming to Annapolis for the official' tests, the percentage of failures be-1 fore the examining board Is very small. In fact. It Is hardly one-half of the average for some years The general average for some years past has been about 10 or 1- per cent, and the per centage of absolute failures thla year, up to the present, has barely reached 5 per cent.

Washington coal dealers will not be permitted to add the increased freight rate, effective tomorrow, on coal that Is now In their yards, on dumps, or en route to this city.

It has been a common business practice In the past for retailers In any line to get the advantage of a rising market, but the coal dealers will be hold to strict account on their costs and margins. In many instances, however, it will be a matter of but a fen days before Washington residents begin paying the higher rate, as dealers are deliv ering coal on early orders a fast as It reaches their yards, and will start right In on the delivery of the higher rate coal Bell-ans Absolutely Removes Indigestion.
