$ ALLIED ARMIES IN GRAVE PERIL British Public Learns That Ser* ious Situation Exists On Two Russian Fronts. RED DANGER IS REAL 01r Ernest Shackleton, Who Has Just Returned From Archangel and Murman, Says Reinforce ments Must Be Sent. London, April 4.For the first time the curtain has been raised for the British public on the position of the Allied armies in Northern Russia. The serious situation in the Mur mansk region and the attempt by the Bolsheviki to drive the Allied troops on the Archangel front into the sea are the cause of much anxiety. The London papers carried startling head lines of which "The British Army Im periled" was typical. The public bought the papers eager ly, having no idea which army was re ferred to. Some of the papers de clared that another Kut surrender or Khartum tragedy threatened. Sir Ernest Shackleton, director of equipment and transportation of the Northern Russian Expeditionary force, has just returned from Murman and Archangel. He declares that both fronts are in danger and that the Bol shevist danger is a very real one, be cause the Entente forces are outnum numbered by disciplined, well armed and well equipped troops in close touch with the Allies' extended, but by no means strong front. Urges Immediate Re-enforcements. "We must avoid the possibility of another Khartoum," says Sir Ernest. He urges the need of sending re-en forcements immediately. These, he says, can reach Murmausk from Eng land in less than a week. Failure of the offensive in the direc tion of Tukkum, in Courland, west of Riga, is admitted by the Russian soviet government in a wireless message re ceived here today. The message adds that fighting is in progress in the direction of Mitau, southwest of Riga, and in the region of Pskov, northeast of Riga.

Bolshevik desertions continue. As an example, 50 miles south of Ufa a whole regiment of Bol shevik cavalry joined Kolchak's force and turned their weapons upon their former comrades.
