The- British and Americans figure lhat S'i.- 000.000 a monlh should cover all Russian costs. Om- charge agmist Austria would be than half of that. Th e Russians were bitterly disappointed at the outcome ol Austrian elections. Only live per cent of the people voted Communist. There are no Communists in th- cabinet and only three In Parliament. Under such conditions it is pretty obvious that if all the occupying troops were withdrawn. Communism would not have much chance lo establish itself in Austria. That apparently is the basic reason the Russians do not want \ to leave and why they seek to em- i barrass th e present non-Commiin-1 ist government of Austria.
