HUN PRISONERS ASSET Their Retnrn to Fatherland' Sure to Spread the Bolshevik! Propaganda; Germany May Attempt to Keep Back tie Hordes Soon to be Released. By Associated Press. WASHINGTON, Feb. 12.--How Russia's complete withdrawal from the war will affect the Allies and the United States in a military way cannot be accurately estimated at this time, officials here believe, despite the fact that on paper the Russian collapse would seem to give the Germans a great numerical superiority of troops on the western front. Officially there is nothing to be said on the subject because the government has no official information. Military men, however, confident that the allied lines on tie west front will hold against any German force that can be thrown against it, profess not to regard the Russian separate peace as the menace it would appear on paper. The fact that 1,500,000 German prisoners will_be free to return to Ger- ·many is regarded with no alarm at all. The general opinion here is that Germany would be more interested in keeping the prisoners In Russia than risk having them carry Bolshevikl doctrines back to Germany.

There is jo»t mamma and I left and we have 1 aw awful hard time. I want to keep my old dog, Brownie, ti wtUcli over us at nights." Touched by the simple appeal of little David Treasurer Rush and Covraty Commissioner Logan Rush and others made up a large purse and sent it with the license to the owner of "Old Brownie."

With men in various walks of life joining hands with the toilers, the working men of Connellsville and vicinity Will tonight give expression of their loyalty to the country by a procession over the streets and a mass meeting at the high school auditorium.
