dispatches from Petrograd say the
Russians havo won over the German
forces which penetrated Poland.
Tonight's olllclnl report simply says
tho battle continues to develop to the

the Germans are trying to extricate
themselves from n position very un
favorable to them.
The Germans, on the other hand,
claim they have Indicted heavy losses
on the Russians between Lodz nnd Lo

ports of a victory uro true, express
astonishment that the Germans should

SOUTH AMERICA WOULD BE RID
OF EUROPEAN WARSHIPS.
Belgians Do Not Receive Enough to
Keep Them Alive Appeals to
College Men for
Western Newspaper Union News Service,
Washington. The United States
government has been asked by the
principal nations of South America to
co-operate with them in negotiations
with the belligerent powers, of Europe
to bring about the exclusion of all
belligerent warships from the waters
of the two Americas and safeguard
the trade of Pan-American countries
with ench other. Argentine, Chllo,
Peru and Uruguay have laid their sug
gestions before the Washington gov.
eminent, while tho Brazilian govern
ment Is considering the advisability of
taking a similar stop. Practically all
the Central .und South American coun
tries have been circularized by some
of the principal nations, resulting in a
series of diplomatic conferences in
Washington and the capitals of South
America, which are now In progress.
Appeals to College Men.
Washington. An appeal to univer
sity, college and school pupils for as
sistance in alleviating suffering and
distress in Europe has been issued
by tho American Red Cross.
"Frequently operations have to be
performed without anaesthetics," the
appeal says, "the lack of gauze band
ages and absorbent cotton produces
infection, ending often in death from
gangrene or tetanus. The armies en
gaged are composed of young men of
our own age and for this reason it
seems particularly fitting that their
suffering should appeal to you."
