| Share of America in Over
throw of Bolsheviks Con
cerns the President
By Associated Press
London, Dec. 20. The London
correspondent of the Manchester
Guardian suggests that President
Wilson's sudden determination to
come to England is due to his de-
I sire to consult the British govern
i rnent regarding the Russian situa
tion before the preliminaries to the
| peace conference. The correspond
ent points to the presence in London
,of former Premier Kcrensky and
! Paul N. Milukoff, former Russian
i foreign minister and leader of the
! constitutional democrats. He also
1 calls attention in this connection to
I Wednesday's statement by Viscount
iMilner, the secretary for war, on the
| Russian situation, which he says was
J "evidently intended to prepare the
j public for events to come."
"Rumors of an advanced policy
' against Russia are growing dally,"
the correspondent continues, "and
I feeling not only in labor quarters
i but in commercial quarters, too, has
i become very tense about our next
adventure in Russia. The impetus
of the Allied movement Is believed 1
to come from London, not Purls.
The share which America must take
In any big attempt to overthrow the
Bolshevikl und reconstruct Russia,
If Bhe takes a further share, must
be a large one."
