LONDON, April 9

Mr Green wall, the Berlin correspondent of the "Daily Express," states that the Communists owe their strength in Bavaria to the possession of food depots. The Allies must either hurry up and make peace with the present German Government, or soon they will be faced with a Soviet Germany, which will not make peace at all. Bavaria will never, pay the Allies a red cent. To-morrow it may be Wurtemburg or Saxony, perhaps Prussia, until the whole country, which is rapidly sinking in a fog of despair, goes over to Bolshevism. ' There are already signs of Bolshevism in Prussia. Millions, of Russian money is being spent nightly in the Berlin gambling hells, in which well-dressed Russians are seen with up to £150,000 in notes. Nobody j carries such sums with an honest purpose. The Allies previously held the trump cards, and could have done what they liked with Germany. The position now is doubtful. The Allies must either! put in a receiver .to run Germany for the benefit of her creditors, or allow her to laugh up her sleeve and get better peace terms than she ever conceived in her wildest dreams. The Allies should urgently control the prices and distribution of food. Germany has only one weapon—Bolshevism. If the Allies delay, the German Government will simply throw in its hand and say, "Do what you like." Then there will be a danger of Bolshevism over-running" and engulfing France and Great Britain. The Peace Conference ought to realise that they are dealing with a desperate, hungry nation. The issue is simple— peace or Bolshevism ?
