RUSSIA AND EUROPE

This letter is not meant to be a challenge or contradiction to what appears to me obviously erroneous statements regarding the above •subject by your correspondent, Douglas Black, as Mr. Oscar Mcßrine has abundantly attended to that matter. However, in order to bring comfort and confidence to Mr. Black, and all others who seem to fear that the military ascendancy of Russia constitutes a danger and menace to the future safety of Europe and the world, I will quote the words of the late Henri Barbusse, a French savant, who gave his life for the freedom of his country in World War No. 1. It is as follows: "No one pretends that the Bolsheviks are angels. I only know that these young men are fighting for the independence and freedom of their Fatherland. If they go down, they will go down with clean hearts, and with clean shields, for they are striving for an ideal that will 'live beyond them. If they fail they will, none the less, have written a page more daring than any other to be found in the history of the human race, and in years to come men will Judge your country, and my country, by the help or hindrance it gave to the writing of it." FRANK MORROW.
