' Contracts for-Supplies to Go
- Forward, 'But Prevented
From Falling Into the
Wwhingtom D. C, Nov, 30.The
American government, is shaping what
is described, as a tolerant policy in
dealing Vith Russia in its present
straits, so as to show hope and faith
for the ultimate triumph of a sane
democracy, .,' '
It ; was . declared today that even
should ' the Bolsheviki conclude an
armistice with Germany there is no
present intention, to brdadly list
Russia as an enemy.
Contracts -for supplies of material
for Russia, it was said, would go for-
.ward as. usual, in the hope that they
would be , applied to the cause of
world democracy. It was pointed out
'again, however, that these are under
control at all times and can be pre
vented from falling into hostile hands.
In view of the attitude, expressed
here it appears that should the inter
allied war council at Paris decide to
send what -hat been described as a
threatening communication to Russia.
i the American ' delegates might not
subscribe to it. Of course, their ac
, tion will be finally determined by the
nature of the communication which
; may be sent. .

sanitation having been adhered to. as
closely as possible. The entire coun
try, however, shares in the honor of
having its representative units bow
at the front in the world war., ;.
Secretary Baker hat announced that
as fast as men and ships are ready
they will be combined and additional
i forces sent to join General Pershing.
: By thia means guard divisions first to
show themselves fitted for transpDr-
. tatlon to the training camps in France
will be first to go. . ' '
It appears possible that the re
grouping of national army divisions,
made necessary by the use of drafted
men to fill up depleted National
Guard divisions," will determine the
or4er of the first national army units
to be sent over. Tin that regrouping
two national army divisions were
formed, one representing the whole
eastern section of the country and
one equally representative of all mid
dle states. All of-the far west is al
ready in the national army division at
Camp Lewis, American-take. Wash.
If the same policy is followed with
relation to the national army that
has been followed in connection with
the National Guard, it seems likely
that these three divisions, other things
such as training and equipment being
equal, would be the first of the na
tional army to go over, as every state
in the union would then have national
army men at the front as it now has

LAID RAILS TO AID

bombardment when the twin lines of
steel . began to creep forward once
more. After the engineers had
reached a point where they were ex
posed on the sky line, it wes neces
sary to work at night or on foggy
days in order to avoid enemy obser
vation. -There have been three forces of
Americans employed in this region
since about August 1. Two of them
have been occupied with the opera
tion and maintenance of light railways
and the other has been constructing
narrow, guage lines. The importance
?f this work hardly, needs emphasis,
or it is well known that over these
railways food, ammunition and ma
teria) of all sorti are poured up to
lend support to the fighting forces.
The correspondent has visited many
of these engineers since their arrival
and has found them as fit as possible
and eager for work. Most of them
undoubtedly look forward to the time
when they will be able to join the
American forces, but just now they
are content to do their bit here and
learn valuable lessons in military rail
roading. Prefer to Work Under Fire. -'
; The correspondent was talking with
three officers today and the only
anxiety they expressed about the fu
ture . was the fear that they might
later be compelled to- work far back
of the lines out of the fighting tone.
The engineers love to hear the guns
and get dose to the firing line as
military orders permit Some of
them had ' an 1 unusual experience,
much to their liking, on the first day
of the offensive. The,. British called
for volunteer stretcher-bearers to go
forward to the battlefield and bring in
wounded- British and German's. A
large number of the engineers-offered
their services, which were ac
cepted. They just had finished a hard
day's work on the railway, but they
gladly undertook, the new,, arduous
and dangerous task and labored
through the night getting injured sol
diers back to the dressing stations
They were highly complimented by
the 'British for their efficiency in this
line, of service, which was rather far
reached from building railroads.

Some of the producers complain that
as they have granted wage increases
based on expectations of silver at $1

price lower than that would work

President Studies Austrian Problem.
Washington," Nov, 30. President
Wilson continued to work on his ad
dress to congress today, and the fact
that he had before him a great quan
tity of material bearing on relations
with Austria caused some speculation
as to whether he would touch on the
subject Official intimations of what
the president: would' say still were
withheld. The fact that he is hold
ing, the address open to the last
minute, probably so late that advance
copies may not be available until he
starts to speak, puts accurate predic
tions out of the question. One offi
cial today said the problem- of
whether the government should de
clare war on Austria was not so easy
of solution as it looked to the aver

GERMANS USE ITALIAN
WOMEN AND CHILDREN
AS SOLDIERS SHIELD
- - v -
Washington, Nov. 30.-All , the
oppressive measures which character
ized the German invasion of Belgium
nd many of the acta of. barbarism
which revolted the civilized world,
semi-official dispatches from Rome
today say, are now being practiced
by the Austro-German invaders of
Near Zenson, the disyatches say.
the invaders placed Italian women and
children before their troops as they
advanced and the Italian soldiers
were compelled tq sacrifice their in
nocent countrymen. '
1 In he Friuli region war taxes,
requisitions and conscription of la
bor is being practiced as it was in
Belgium and northern France. Aus-tro-German
prisoners tell of Italian
noncombatants massacred by .the in
vading troops and loot from Italian
homes and shops has been found on
the bodies of dead troops.
Soldiers on the Piave declare they
hear the screams of women and chil
dren front, the opposite side of river.
The invading armies have taken
away cattle and other property and
burned household furniture for their
bivouac fires at night Bosnian
troops, the dispatches say, have com
