FAMINE IS RUSSIA'S PERIL
(untry Is Hard Pressed to Provide
Staples Essential to the Main- .
tenanc of Her Inhabitants.
Not Germany but famine is the
most desperate peril' which Russia
faces now.. Uuia is- hard pressed
to provide staples c??ential to the
maintenance of her people, observes
a correspondent.. Great cities such
as Fetrogfad are short of provisions.
Bread is hard to obtain. ' 'Appeals
have been published to' the citizens
of the capital explaining that the
grain-growing provinces ' refuse to
sell their wheat or flour and begging
the people to remember that any dis
orders will make it yet more diiScult
to get food. '
With such conditions existing
what will happen at the end of the
long, hard Russian winter? And if
actual starvation blights the chief
cities of' Russia, then what can be
hoped for from the army and the
government? N .
In the largest sense, of course,
Russia will survive. To a certain
extent that vast country ?nay-vea-
oomback before' the end of 'the
war. But no help from Russia can
be counted on ty the allies. They
may hope for some uncertain assint-
ance, but their plans will necessarily
be made, without reckoning on Mua-
eovite co-operation at alL
