Events Point to Near End

By HAROLD E. BECHTOL
European Manager N. E. A. .
LONDON, Jan. 5.?Peace with

Everything points to an allied otort

n ft If n/i oollrn Vvn'.r* wowIaiio

Then, under ] ;:ie- conditions, Rusia
can decide wliai kind of govern-1

Behind the scenes, events have
een moving swiftly since Lloyd
leorgo announced: "No more British

The movement toward peace is noc|

hevism. Nor i s it probable that any

^nine's cold-blooded experiment
In the "Feeler'' Stage. I
But Russian peace Is in the "feeler" j
tage right now, and is making pro-j
ross dally. Here are some of the imortant
spurring facts behind it:
1?Business interests are insistentr
demanding peace with Russia,
heaper raw materials and food
'ould hit the cost of living.
2?Lenine knows this, is increasing
Is peace efforts and io making a .ipec-i

onservative right, by compromise, j
S?The allies are In real fear of a j
lerman-Russian alliance if peace
'alts too long.
4?Western Europe no longer
tands in the trembling that the
opening up" of Russia will blow Bolbevistic
red terror all over the world.
Withdrawal of British military aid'

Germany is extremely active and

British Statesmen on
Russia
LORD HALDANE?It is vain to
try to coerce the people or Russia
out of Bolshevism. The way to deal
with Bolshevism is to let the Russians
work it out for themselves.
SIR GEORGE PAISH ?The
dangerous economic situation today
urgently demands r ace in
Russia. When the peopi: o. Runsia
no longer suffer from lutr.....
and privation they will be ab c t
adopt a more reasonable political
policy.
WINSTON CHURCHILL ?
Warns of the very real dangor of a
Gorman-Russian alliance unless
some way is found to bring peace.
The allies would welcome peace tomorrow
if all factions would agree to
a constituent assembly elected from
all\over Russia. But neither Reds nor
Whites will listen to this now, though
many allied statesmen believe they
for Denlkin was tremendously popular.
This aid was expensive. Europe,
will shortly. For the present, Lenine
suggests an 'econon-.Lr Mnri?inn,? .if
the various states?which would, of
course, keep him temporarily in the
saddle ot Soviet Russia.
Use "Only Hope" Appeal.
The more conservative srviettsm
has Its "only hope" appeal for the silled
business man, especially as Lenino
offers concession and a guarantee
of old Russia's debts.
Leuine has been forced to compromise
on ills cardinal principle of national
ownership of all property, to
give the stubborn Russian peasants
private ownership of their grain am,
other products.
Litvinotf, as spokesman for the
Bolshevi&t crowd, now admits: "Pull
communism is only possible if other
countries accept the same economic
basis. They will either follow our
example. or if Russia. is before her
time, she will have to revert to capitalism.
Wo have been forced to take
a middle courso for the present."
Rersia Open by Spring.
At the moment the allies are
eargerly watching for more internal
risings against tho Leninites of Rus- I
sia. Kecontly a number of Red troops
have mutinied and joined the Baltic
forces and there have been persistent
roports of serious internal risings.
j^uuuiu auuiiLs ine ajBCovery ol a
wide-spread anti-red organization.
Peace efforts would be dropped like
hot coals if these disturbances were
to spread, for the allies would cer- i
talnly do nothing that might prevent
the overthrow of the Reds.
BuaiaoM men here are confidently;
predicting: "Russia will be open by
spring." 1

IOTTGHAHCE FOR

Germans.. Are.. Through
With Man They Used
to Worship.
By FRANK W. ROSTOCK.
(Editor Cincinnati Post, N. E. A. Correspondent
in Europe.)
BREMEN, Germany, Jan. 3.?When
I visited fonnor Crown Prince Wilhelm
at Wirlgen late in November he
remarked to me:
"I hope to return to Germany some
day as a private citizen, to live and
work on my estate and help rebuild
Germany."
Despite reports to the contrary,
which inslBt that either the former
kaiser or the former crown prince will
be returned as leader of the German
people, investigation among all classes
in Germany indicates that there
isn't a chance of either ever being restored
to power.
The .people of Germany have not
forgotten how. In that fateful time, in
November, 1918, after Germany had
fought for more than four years, the
Gorman army suddenly crumbled, the
peoplo at home revolted?and the
kaiser and the crown prince fled to
Holland.
Are Dissatisfied With the Government
That doeB not mean that Germany
is satisfied with its present form of
government .1 have talked to people
Df all kinds. Almost to a man they
voiced their dissatisfaction with the
present government.
Franz Ebert, prosldont of the German
republic, Is regarded by many almost
as a nonentity; people make
sport of him in their talk in public
and private; politicians belittle him.
uiu am uiucitus, ana everywuere one
lieara how Ebart and the Ebert form
it government will melt away after
the spring elections.
Germany refers to the former
kaiser as "the man who ran away."
It speaks in a like tone of the former
crown prince, who also ran away.
A former captain in the German
army expressod the sentiment 01
many Germans when he said to me:
"I am not a Bolshevist. I still have
i liking for the old-time form of government,
somewhat modified. But the
kalBer and the crown prince cannot
come tack. After thousands, yes,
millions of Germans had given their
lives?their all?to their fatherland
and had fooght for the kaiser and the
crown prince, there came the time

There was a look In their cyM, micj

a great Idol has fallen.
But the kaiser and the crown
