Fighting "from pck to rock" over the roughest coun try, the Italians captured Hill No. 652, the "key to the enemy defenses north of Monte Santa," the Italian official state ment states. (P.y Lowell Mellon, United Press staff corresiondent. LONDON, April 27.,by mail. The ancient kingdom of Poland just now presents the attentive attitude of the mouse that waits to see which way the cat will jump. It might be possible to express the situation in a more pleasant way, but I the expression is that of Dr. Leon Lit winski, spokesman for the Poles in Lon don. Poland, first caught in the man gle of the Russian advance and German retreat and then in the mangle of the German advance and Russian retreat. probably has suffered as greatly as any country of Kurope. not including Bel gium or Serbia. A million and a half of her sons have been enrolled as belligerents, 900,000 in the Russian armies and ((X),000 in the German and Austrian armies. But Poland's position in present Weltpolitik is that of desperate neutral ity. Both Germany and Russia have promised her much. Poland wants to cash one of those promises. Of the two. Russia offers the more a complete in dependence. But there is this drawback, l)r. I.itwinski explained. Russia is promising independence to territory oc cupied by German troops. And there is more or less of a string attached to Germany's proposal, which is a completely reunited I oiand witn iis own local government, under the wing of the German empire, somewhat like the position of Bavaria. The string is the unrelenting emphasis on the sug gestion that Poland raise an army of her own against Russia. "A reunited Poland would be a great betterment of our before-the-war situa tion." said Dr. Litwinski, "but what we want, of course, is lwth a reunited and an independent country. We have been immensely encouraged by the procla mation of the new Russian government, though previous Russian assurances, naturally, did not impress us very much." "Do you consider that President Wil son's mention of Poland in his discus sion of possible peace terms has had ef fect ?" "Oh, colossal!" exclaimed Dr. Lit winski. "Colossal!" echoed Dr. George de Swcitochowski. "Colossal, Colossal!" repeated the other Poles in the room. "It was this way." said Dr. Swcito chowski. "There's been a lot of gener alizing about small nations and there's LATEST BULLETINS ll'.y tinted Tress WASHINGTON. May 19. The state department has Announced that Nicar agua has broken relations with Germane. been some mention of Belgium and Ser bia, but beyond that nobody has ever gone. The case of Poland has been handled very gingerly. There has been the fear perhaps, that it might be nec essary to do a lot ol compromising when it caine to settle Poland's case. President Wilson left no room for doubt, so far as he was concerned; he declared it should be a reunited, auton omous, independent Poland. Now we know where we've got one real friend." "Suppose it becomes an independent Poland, will it be a republic or a mon archy?" "That is now uncertain. Hitherto the Poles have had in mind a new kingdom of Poland. But monarchies seem to be going out. "If our independence comes through Russia, where the democratic ideal has taken a real hold, undoubtedly the dis position would be to make Poland a re public. If through Germany, a limited monarchy would seem most likely un less there is a decided change in Ger many in the meantime." Belva Lockwood Dead I!v United Tress WASHINGTON, May 19.

Rejecting the Roosevelt section of the conscrip tion lull 1 resident Wilson last I night signed the measure. After an nouncing that he will not avail himself, lor the present at least, of any authori sation to organize volunteers. He de clared that it would interfere with the purpose of the prompt creation and the early use of an effective army. "It would be agreeable to me to send one of our most distinguished public men, whose gallantry has been proved in many striking ways. Politically, too, it would no doubt make a profound im pression, but this is no time or occasion lVr compliments, for my action is not calculated to contribute to other than the immediate success of the war. The business now in hand is undramatic. practical and of scientific definiteness and precision. "The troops to be sent to France will lie taken from the present regulars. The responsibility rests on me. 1 could not escape it if I would. I am too much in terested in the cause we are fighting for to be interested in anything but its suc cess. "The power against which we are ar rayed has sought to impose his will upon the world by force. It is not an army we must shape and train, but the enure nation. "The people must draw together and present a close, compact front against the common foe. The whole nation must be a team in which each member should plan the part for which he is Lest idted. This is in no sense a con scription of the unwilling; it is rather a selection from a nation which has volunteered en masse. "June 5th need not be a technical hol iday, but really a day of patmtic devo tion." The American force will probably not take field guns at ibis time but will depend on the French artillery. After signing the bill the president is sued a proclamation directing registra tion to take place June 5th. 1 lie proclamation states that any of ficial, swearing to false statements, or anyone trying to evade service by means of fale statements, will be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and liable to be sentenced to a year in pris on, or tried by court-martial, if subject to the military law.
