The UuiteU State*. 20 years Russia, Germany and Austria wrestled with the problem of assimilating the "Polish minorities." Dual With the AJlics When the World war came, these Poles living under German, Russian, and Austrian governments were torn by the antagonisms' of the war. As Russian, and then. German armies swept across the' Galicla and Warsaw districts, each conqueror dangled bait before 1119 Poles, promising a Polisl state under his protection. , Tho filial decision was to'adhere to the Allies, and the Poles in those countries carried on agitation for this cause. Ignacc Paderwski, the grca pianist-statesman, had already sole President Wilson on the plan of an independent Poland before the Unitei" States entered the war, and it bccani' an official Allied war aim. The treaty of Brest-Litovsk alienatei the last shred of German syjnpath among Poles. Their troops in the 1 Ger man army revolted and fought thei way to the coast to join a Polish legio already fighting with the French.

While the new republic fought Bol- heviks on the east, Germans on the west, and Czechs on the south, the lew League of Nations set Poland's Boundaries, attempting to settle the feschen, and Upper Silesia questions which still agitate the country. A long fight with Ukrainian forces under Pc'tlura resulted in .settlement cf that border, and Poland launched nto a bitter war with Soviet Russia n 1920. This resulted in a settlement of the oK.stLM-n border, and a similar lii-pute with Lithuania dragged on until after a plebiscite in 1923. Large Minorities After all these centuries of jig-sawing. Poland remains today dotted with lacial minorities which make up ncarl> ;• third of it.s population: 3,800,OOC Ruthenians. 2,100,000 Jews, 1,000,00 White Rulhcnians, 1,000,000 Germcns and many Lithuanians, Russians, am Czechs. In 1926 the president of the rcpubli was forced to abdicate in the face o a military coup by Marshal Pilsudsk hero of the 1920 war. Colonel Beck ero, inclines to France.
