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

pared to dose within a very few days.
The legation employes have sent their
baggage to Camp Grappe, the emer

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
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

cated considerable bolshevik unrest in

and British governments relative to

Berlin Attempts to Reduce Prices by
Refusing to Purchase.
Washington, D. C, Aug. 6. Picket
ing against unnecessary buying has
developed in Berlin in an effort to re
duce the high cost of living, according
to a report from the American com
mission in Germany yesterday to the
department of commerce.
Attempts are being made to discour
age purchasers until prices fall. A
slight drop in prices has stopped buy
ing rather than stimulated it, the re
port stated, as purchasers are await
ing further reductions.
Charged With Conspiracy to Tie Up
the Necessities of Life.
Chicsgo, Aug. 6 Indictments against

names of those indicted had become
public through a "leak" several hours
before the federal grand jury complet
ed its report, were returned yester
Judge Alschuler ordered the indict

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
