ED AT RUSSIA'S WITH
DRAW FROM WAR
Washington, Feb. 1. How Rus
sia's complete withdrawal from ihe
war will affect the allies ami the
1'nited States in a military way can
not be accurately estimated at this
time, officials here believe, despite
the fact that on p;per the Russian
toilapi.e would seem to give the
Germ a:; 3 a great numerical super
iority of troops on the west front.
O'licially there is nothing to be
said on the subject, because the gov
trnmei has no ofiitial information.
Probably no definite official announ
cement of how it a'-Tecis the situa
tion could be made any way with
out agreement among all the co
belligerents and that is considered
unlikely. Military men. however,

western front will hoid against ary
German fore' that can he thrown

Russian separate p.vco as the men

Since the I'nited States became
