United States Will Lend.
Big Sums to Russ Government
Washington, April 18. The Ameri
can government is only awaiting defi
nite word from Russia as to the needs
of that nation before taking active
steps to strengthen the new govern
ment and .make more effective its re
sistance to Germany. No specific re
quest for assistance has been received.
It is taken for granted that large
sum will be lent to Russia if it is de
sired, because it is agreed, that the
United States should go to almost
any lengths to assist the new demo
cratic regime there. A group of"
American engineers will be sent to
Russia, if requested, to assist, in. sys

Meanwhile the bulk of the French

here and on other parts of the line.
Telephonic reports from various

German prisoners were to be seen on
their way to captivity.
Before evening more than 10,000 had
been counted and others were arriv

exceedingly severe losses, their com

would be many desertions except for

reasonable time, we deem it best to clear away
these certain lines quickly.
