Cannot Be Counted Upon For
Their Action Against
By Associated Press
New York, Dec. 19. —Finland need
not be counted upon for aggressive
action against Bolshevism, accord
ing to H. Montagu Donner, an
American who has just returned
from a two months' visit to the new
republic in the north.
Mr. Donner, who is president of
the Finland Constitutional Deague
of America, said that the chance to
enlist the active co-operation of the
Mnnish army in the campaign
against Pctrograd was lost this sum
mer, when Admiral Kolchak, Gen
eral Yudenitch and the other anti-
Bolshevist Russian leaders, neglect
ed to give timel yrecognition to the
ed to give timely recognition to the
lied governments refused to give
assurance of financial support with
out which Finland could not ven
ture to enter upon war with the So
viet government.
At that time, he said, the morale
of the Bolshevist army was low and
the capture of I'etrograd by the
combined Russian, Esthonian and
Finnish armies would have been
easy. Now, with the collapse of the
Yudenitch campaign. Finland must
confine herself to holding her fron
tiers arrd protecting Eastern Ka
relia, which she had been invited by
the inhabitants to occupy.
Fear of Bolshevism in Finland
Itself, ho said, had entirely disap
peared; even moderate Socialists
having assured the existing coali
tion government of their support in
ase of a revival of the "Red" in
surrectionary movement which was
suppressed with so much difficulty a
year ago. Fear has disappeared too
of a repetition this year of the fam
ines under which Finland has suf
fered so severely during the war,
because the harvest has been ex
ceptionally good. Food Is abund
ant in Helsingfors and throughout
the country and supplies promise to
last, through until the next harvest
without resort to "bark bread" and
other famine substitutes, of which
the Finnish population has such un
happy recollections.
Rusincss conditions are good ex
cept for the extreme depreciation
of the Finnish mark and the lack
of shipping to carry Finnish ex
ports. Barge quantities of timber,
wood pulp an<j paper are awaiting
export in exchange for required im
ports, of which the most pressing
are machinery, agricultural imple
ments, etc. A good market is of
fered for American goods of this
character. ,
Another handicap under which
Finnish industry suffers is the high
cost of labor, Mr. Donner declared.
The workmen now worked only
i, bout seven hours daily, the five
o'clock closing hour having* been
made practically universal in all
lines of industry and business, while
wages had greatly Increased as
against prewar times.
International Police
Force, Is Suggested
I jondon. Dec. 19.—Creation of an
International olice force Is sug
gested by Major David Da\ies. a
member of Parliament. He told the
tirotius Society that each nation
should have a sufficient army-to
maintain internal order and
its quota when the League of is a
tions required it; that no nation
should provide the League of Na
tions with an adequate force for
immediate use.
These units should, be- concen
trated in different parts of the
world and' the naval portion simi
larly constituted. Poison gas, war
planes, submarines, heavy artillerj
and tanks should bo ceded to the
league to form the headquarters
force and no state should be allowed
to own them or*to make use of any
new invention for war-like purposes
Major Davies said the greatest re
sistance to the suggestion Probably
now would be found in America
"which was the more saddening be
cause the President of the great re
public was one of the earliest and
most powerful exponents of the
principles of the League."
Reception to Prince
Pleases the Globe
l.ondon, Deo. 19.—The warmth of
America's welcome to the Prince of
Wales moved the Globe to remark
humorously: "Americans will P le -e
remember that he is our Prince not
their*" The paper explains that the
Americans gave the Prince ch a
reception that "anybody might be ex
cused for fearing that they had some
annexationist designs in view.
The Prince's welcome in New 1 ork,
Ihe Globe added, "was the real thing,
coming from, perhaps. the most
warm-hearted people in the world.
They have much to teach him of the
warmth of that friendship which
mischief-makers cannot break and he
had somewhat to teach them about
institutions which, it may be, they
l ave occaslonly misunderstood.
' "The onlv thing wanted to make the
friendship" of Britain and America
impregnable is that they should know
,no another better than they do. To
help on that work was the I rince s

In New KnKland7~where Bronchial

eases of the throat and lungs are so
prevalent, remarkably successful re

the use of a new form of treatment

Oxidaze is a harmless but powerful
combination of curative essential oils
concentrated and compressed into a
small tablet. One of these tablets
slowly dissolved before going to bed
seems to have the effect of releasing
the musqular constriction of the.
bronchial tubes, opening up the air
passages and regulating spasmodic
lung action. This enables the pa
tient to breathe easily and naturally
while lying down and to get a com
fortable night's sleep.
So much interest has been shown
that local druggists, including Ueo.

treatment fails to give relief. Oxi
