AMERICANS IRE RUSHED UP Koscinsko Air Squadron Sent to Defend Pol i ish Capital TRANSFERRED FROM SOUTHERN FRONT Because of the Desperate Situation on Front Nearest Warsaw " Hood's Pills In small doses A GENTLE LAXATIVE In Larger Doses A THOROUGH CATHARTIC Mad I by C. t Hood Co., Lowan, Mats. Warsaw, Aug. 5, 8:30 p. m. (By Iho Associated Press). Owing to the des perate situation on the front nearest Warsaw, the Kosciuszko squadron, the air force composed mostly of Amori- cans, attached to the Polish army, is ' being transferred from the southern front. The squadron will aid in the .defense of the Polish capital. ,The American consulate in Warsaw 'will be closed on Friday and Consul Rsnkin is making preparations to de part Friday night. Most of the rec ords already have been shipped away. 1 The American . legation is also pre pared to dose within a very few days. The legation employes have sent their baggage to Camp Grappe, the emer p?ncy headquarters of the American typhiu expedition. HOPEFUL REPORT FROM POLISH STANDPOINT Advance of the Bolsheviki on Warsaw Has Been Slowed Up Partly Through Determined De fense of the Poles. Paris, Aug. 6. Russian bolsheviki forces which have been attacking the Poles northeast of Warsaw for the purpose of enttting communications be tween that city and Danzig seem to have been checked for the time beinj by the desperate defense of the Polish armies. Dispatches received 'lere appear to indicate an improvement in the military situation in that sector of the front. Observers are inclined, however, lo look on the fighting near Brest-Li-tovsk, east of Warsaw with some con cern, as the bolsheviki have massed large forces in an effort to break through there. It is felt that the out come of the battle now being waged In that region may decide the fate of Toland. It is possible the apparent slowing of the soviet attack in the north may be due, hower, to difficulties encoun tered in bringing food, munitions and reinforcements to the front over coun try roads that are believed to have been thoroughly wrecked by the Poles. If this is the case, the Poles may be given only a brief breathing spell be fore, being called upon to meet the impact of another tremendous drive toward their capital. While their comrades were launching a counter onensive in tne nortn, tne Poles fighting on southern sectors of the line have struck back at tha bolshe viki and have driven them from terri tory that theyhad won. in Galicia,. (' In this region, however, there; is reason to believe the Boviet armies' are not se strong nor so flushed with victory as they have been further north,where the Polish line has been crumbled up by the attacks launched against it, Rumania has begun the concentre tion of forces in Bessarabia. Whother this move is for the purpose of reliev ing the pressure against Poland or to force the withdrawal of soviet troops now on Rumanian soil has not as yet developed. A Geneva dispatch indi cated considerable bolshevik unrest in Rumania. - - ; ;. " Conversations between the French and British governments relative to steps to be taken to induce the bolshe viki to halt their attack, or to help ' Poland went on all day yesterday, but no official announcement on the subject has been made. GOING TO AID LEAKING BOAT Four Steamships Sent in - Response to Appeal From the Supartco WATER IS GAINING, SAYS MESSAGE POLES LEAVE OSTR0V. Evacuated Town 53 Miles Northeast of Warsaw. London, Aug. 6. A semi-official mes sage from Warsaw, filed last night, says the Poles have evacuated Ostrov, between the Bug and the Narew rivers, 25 miles southwest of Lomza and about 53 miles northeast of Warsaw. The dispatch declares that Polish officials believe that the present rate of advance if maintained would bring the Russians into Warsaw in from sev en to 10 days. .

Charged With Conspiracy to Tie Up the Necessities of Life. Chicsgo, Aug. 6 Indictments against 41 leaders in the recent railroad strikes which Judge Samuel Alschuler refused to receive Wednesday because the names of those indicted had become public through a "leak" several hours before the federal grand jury complet ed its report, were returned yester day.

Proposal Made to Put Them In State Owned Plants. Berlin, Aug. 6. A practical sugges tion to solve the vexed problem wh.it to do with 100,000 army men who, in compliance with a Spa undertaking, are facing discharge, is offered by the "eco nomic union of German professional soldiers' which has worked out a scheme to distribute the men in differ ent state-owned plants which are at the present moment lying idle. The German government is to subsidize working expenses of these plants and fix a scale of wages. The operation of the plants would constitute a novelty because they would be worked on the principle of "mutual comradeship," and the rela tionship of employer and workmen would be eliminated. The government would take over the main output of the plants and there would be planned extensive land settlements on state- owned lands, which workers would cul tivate, and on which they would build their own dwellings after performing eight hours' daily factory work. The i promoters claim that the scheme has already secured official support on prin ciple. All Prussian district presidents have been summoned to meet Minister Sev ering to confer on matters affecting the security police.
