Tongues of flames and smoke or dust were seen to be emitted from what is popularly supposed to have been a' new crater opened near the mountain top. Frank A. Perrett, the American volcanologist for the Carnegie Institu tion, who occupies a station at Mt. Vesuvius to observe its operations, has expressed to the Associated Press the opinion that no new volcano has been formed but that the earthquakes caused displacements of subterranean »«»,_ strata causing a fissure In the earth's ,MrB' .crust and thait gas escaping therefrom was mistaken by onlookers as the op ening of a new crater. The phe nomenon was not a new one. Mr. Perrett said the seismical instruments showed a towering of the earth level in the earthquake district previous to this tremors. This had been ob served on other occasions when earth quakes occurred. This view is shared by Senator Cap lellini, a leading geologist who has been interviewed by the Messagero and who says there may have been an eruption of gas through a fissure on Mount Pisanino and the supposed column of snvke above the mountain may have caused by clouds of dust from falling earth. The tongues of flame, in Senator Caplellini's opinion, may possible Have been inflammable gas from under ground wells of oil. He said, how ever, that volcanoes can appear Inde pendently of the structure of the earth's crust and that the greatest catastrophes have occurred from the appearance of volcanoes where no body expeoted them. For example, the geologist contin ued, Mount Etna rises out of post Pliocene strata while the volcanoes of the Andes mountains in South Amer- ^s^-fefc-s w*tf~•» r-w'tt..

At many paints it is some distance east of the line fixed for Poland's east em frontier at the Versailles confer ence, and touches the latter line for but a short distance in the neighbor hood of Brest-Litovsk. Poland would have control of the railway junction at Brest-Litovsk that she might have direct railway communication along her eastern frontier. Soviet delegates propose that hos tilities cease within 48 hours after the preliminary treaty of peace is signed and that Polish troops withdraw ap proximately 15 mileH westward of the demarcation line.
