TO STARVE TO DEATH
Maxim Gorky Thinks American -Will
He too Late for Hungry
STK KHOLM. Dec. 9. Maxim Gorky,
Kussian novelist and formerly head ot
the Kussian relief commission, told The
Associated Press correspondent when lie
passed throngh this city on his way to
Ueriin that he believed the deaths from
starvation in Uus-.ia would aygreate 35,
ttftn.ouo. s i
He heartily praised the support which
the American people were KVi; to the
starving people of Russia but said the
only way out of the serious situation
would be through the establishment of
isteruatioiial relief founded on the
American olan, broad, eihejent, complete
and well controlled.
lb- doubted, however, whether the nec
essary relief would arrive in time to
He expressed the opinion that Mr.
Hoover's relief was somewhat imperfect
and lacked organization, because Milii-j
cient safeguards were nut taken to pre-,
vent the stealing of the food by pangs
of Soviet oilirials, from the time the
commodities arrived in IVtrograd until
thev are consumed.
. M. Gorky said Mr. Hoover bad placed'
too much confidence in the Soviet.
He dephoed the passivity of France
aiid excused Germany for not coming to
the supKrt of Russia. Sweden's contri
bution to tlu famine he thought was
but a drop in the ocean. f
On the o.'iestion of Russian interior
politics, Gorky said ' unrest is as com
mon as dinner is here, but nobody takes
any notice. Onite recently there was a
bene riot in lYtrorad which was only
quelled after much bloodshed."
