COMMENT

Our Forces in Russia.

Why are there only four American battalions in the far-off frozen section of Northern Russia? Because the Administration is unwilling to send a larger force thither. Why are the columns of the Allies and Russians "thin"? Because the same Administration opposed the despatch of a larger Allied force. Why is the Administration opposed to effective intervention in Russia? Because American Bolshevists and pacifists have enough influence with the Administration to intimidate it into limiting its action in Russia to the feeble but fatal performance pictured this week in the despatches from Archangel. It is a repetition in Russia, as our neighbor, the Providence Journal; has the courage to declare recently, of the Administration's do-nothing-but-meddle policy in Mexico. Boston Transcript.
