(United Press.) The League of Nations may wield a club in the Vilna dispute between Poland and Lithuania.

Completing Armistice. Riga, Oct. 12. Experts were en gaged today in completing the Ukrainian text of the armistice and preliminary peace treaty between Poland and Russia, and Ukraine. Completion of this work was the last preliminary to signature of the convention, which was framed after 20 days of negotiation. Both Adolf Jofte, head of the Rus sian, soviet peace mission and M. Dombskie express satisfaction with the terms agreed upon. The bol shevik! insist the preliminary treaty is much less favorable than the peace offered Poland last February, l aud the failure of the Poles to have a financial settlement Included in the preliminary convention has been generally regarded as a soviet triumph. French Dissatisfied. . While the principals in the nego tiations insist the terms eventually will lead to the signature of a per manent treaty which will permit restoration of normal conditions in central Europe, there Is much pes simism among the -diplomats and observers, not participating in the conference. The French are clear ly dissatisfied and apparently de- sired a continuation of the war. The bottling up of Lithuania is gen erally regarded as a doubtful ex periment and the occupation' of Vilna by General Zellgouski'a men has created a suspicion that the Po lish government bad knowledge of the plan which has been supported by Polish landlords in Lithuania.
