(Corre spondence of The Associated Press i While American and other allied troops are waging war against the Bolsheviki on the northern front, an other war is continually going on in Archangel the war against Bolshevik spies and agents. Nearly all the trouble that has oc curred in Archangel, in the way of strikes and hesitating morale on ihe part of some of the new Russian con script troops, can be traced to these agenLs. In the lirsr piace. when ihe allies occupied Archangel, it was ab solutely Impracticable to search out, among the civilian population all the Bolsheviki who remained behind Many of the Bolshevik soldi U whom our forces captured at the front, including many who said they were I'nreeH tn aarva with the Rnlahovtlrl despite their objections, volunt, and were accepted, in Archangel, Into the new Russian battalions formed here to fight the allies. Some of ih . e men were sincere volunteers and are doing splendid work at the front. A few others however, became ringlead ers of Bolshevik propaganda pios aimed to destroy the fighting raonle of their comrades. , Also, in the territory near the front, w hich consists for the most part of for-; ests, Bolsheviki have been able to come through our lines disguised as peasants. It Is a tribute to the allied and Rus-j sian Intelligence service that the work oi these agents has been, for the most' part, nipped in th bud Realizing the source of most of the labor troubles that have arisen from; lime to time, the governor General Eugene K Miller, has prohibited strikes among workmen employed on war materials One of the efforts of the Bolshevik agents has been their attempt to gain sympathizers among the American sol diers This has failed signally. Bolshevik propaganda seems so harmless to Ihe American troops that junior officers commanding detach ments along the Emtsa river in the Kadish sector, on several occasions, accepted arm loads of printed matter from Bolshevik officers who came across No Man's Land to parley with them. The Americans are short of reading matter down on this sector, which is accessible only by sleighs, and the Bolshevik literature helps to amuse t! in these long Arctic nights. Most ol" it, written in a flamboyant ctle apparently by some Russian v ho for merly worked for one of the New Vork Socialistic newspapers, calls on the Ann ricans to come over and join the happy Bolshevik proletariat and lay down their arms Much of the propa ganda is included in a weekly news paper, printed in English al Moscow. There is also a pamphlet, written by a former English journalist, which ai tempts to prove that the Bolsheviki treat their prisoners well, Instead of killing them, as the Americans have grown to belu ve from evidence they ha e encountered In these parleys between American and Bolshevik officers, which are usually on the subject of exchange Ol prisoners, the Bolshevik officers salute ours, although the salute has bien abolished in their own army.

HIGH PRICES AND NO WORK RUIN THEPEASANTS ARCHANGEL, February 11 (Cor respondence of 'he Associated Press) rilgh prices and no work have ex hausted the savings of the peasants' and, according to advices reaching the American and other allied food com mittees in Archangel, the world will have to feed and clothe the half mil lion people who live behind the Al lied lines in North Russia lor at least eighteen months. Six months ago. almost every peas ant family in this district had its sec ret hoard of banknotes. While in the cities the people were, in many in stances, starving, the peasant had money hidden under mattresses, in socks and burled in Ihe ground and hidden away from possible Red Guard raiders were supplies of grain and oth er foodstuffs. In August frost killed most of the meagre acreage of grain that was sown last year in this territory which is mostly forest. The secret food hoards were eaten months' ago Lumber mills and otner concerns wnicn usually gave employment have been shut down, and the peasant, with no source of reve nue, has been digging every day into j his money savings to buy the food , that canif in from abroad when the Allies landed. There is no prospect of I North Russia feeding herself until the next harvest and even this is made extremely difficult by the shortage of, seed grain The Allied food committees in Arch-j angel are seeking a way to help this population. The conditions that pre vail to an equal or worse extent throughout Central Russia, under Bol shevik control. The American Red Cross has ceased civilian relief on a large scale in the Archangel district, since this work is to be taken over by the Hoover fed eral organization, whose representa tlvea, at this date, have not arrived. The Archangel Viestnik, commenting on the situation says: "If the North Urn Region desires to be able to :mb I sisf on its own supplies, ihe neces- sary seed grains must be received not ilater than in four months. If they are not received in that time, the popu lation Is either condemned to starva tion or they will depend entireh upon the Allies." Relief work among the peasants in1 the hunger stricken territories along, the Murmansk peninsula and on the' Arctic Pechora, at this time of the year, is greatly hampered by the Ice. An ice breaker with about 700 tons' of flour, sent to the Pechora district had to return to Archangel, unable to I penetrate the ice fields. oo Lee Magee Traded To Brooklyn for ; infielder Kopf , CINCINNATI, O..

Dr. McCartnev nave it is unforiunaie that 'no attention has been called to the fact that this order is In no way intended to reflect upon the labor battalions properly so called, which are a permanent and In . dispensable feature of the United - ites army The popular mind." he, adds, "is likely to confuse ihe Labor Battalion feature of army life with the disciplinary labor referred to in Gcn-i oral Order No. 32."
