IS A MENACE TO RUSSIA With Finland Forming Vnioo With the Central Empires Serions Situation - Arises for Enssia and All oi the Xentral Scandinavian Countries. By Associated Press. . - 'WASHINGTON, June 20.--Germany's activities in Finland and the "Aland Islands are causing fears among tee northern European neu- 'ttaJs that a "middle Sea of the North" is contemplated by the autocratic Central Powers as an adjunct to their aggressive plans for 2121 economic and military alliance against the world under the same of "ittttel-Europe." "The results obtained by the Germans in the Russian Baltic states gtra the neotral northern countries 'much room for atter thought," de" dares Dr. Jar. C. Asche, the Scandi- Bavteu economist, in an article received here ia official dispatches. -·mi* operation* of the Germans in tfce Baltic provinces oajr have consequences which no peac-e congress ever wai Save the power to efface. ' "The Germans d«slre to connect ^Ftalaad in aa economic way with 'Mlddfe Europe. Finland Is a country ot raar materials. H Germany be- 1 comes master of the Baltic, and Fin' land becomes an independent state -with economic connections wit±L [·Middle Europe, Russia's wish to ex- · tend toward the west !s probably ' once for all made impossible. · "In order for Russia to get on her . feet again, she must find an outlet for Her natural riches, anl when she has no way open to the west, she must get there by aid of thi Middle European group, especially Germany, and "by aid of Scandinavia, In this way, an interchange of trade between Scandinavia, the Middle European group, and Russia, and the entire Mohammedan world would be possible, and not simply a future dream. " "With regard to Norway, it is not oat ot the question that this country trill have to consider suriously wboth- ' er she will not have to lean more to the east and south than now is the case." Bearing on the sam' subject is an Abstract Irom Affarsvnrlden, a leading Swedish trade journal: "Germany's actions on Aland and in Finland, and the inclusion of Filand Jn the German protected states, is a very serious thing £ot the economic life and the whole future of Sweden." it says. "Finland and possibly Rus-! £ia under German economic and po- I litical control are a menace to Sweden | greater than any before. There are j already indications to show that Germany is extending her new influence as .far north as Spitsbergen."

Recently the price has advanced to six and eleYeo cents, the extra cent being adOed to the war revenues. REFORESTATION Being Tindcrtalicn by Anlhrodte Coal ^fining Companies. B«cayse the opei-arors of anthracite coal mines need timber, an im- petnfl has been given to the reforestation of tie mountains and bills in tie mining region. The scarcity of lumber for mine props and other mine uses has led to the creation of a forestry department by several of the large mining companies, one ot winch has just reforested Bear Creek watershed with 5,000 white pine and 5,000 Norway spruce trees. Thirty thousand more trees are in process of cultivation at Ha«to, in the Panther Creek valley.
