Sneed lost a sow advertised the fact in the Columbia Tribune got the sow back with a litter of nine pigs bomb lakes or, effectively, forests they can bomb railroads and strategic centers.

They could reach Helsinki in 20 minutes from Bal- tiski or 40 from Kronstadt Quite possibly they could presently reduce Finnish resistance to guerilla warfare, but the lakes would still be fingers tripping the none too nimble feet of the Red transport. To conquer Finland would cost many a rouble and many a life. Soviet obvious desires are for a frontier protecting Leningrad from future attack by some ally or conqueror of Finland, and for island and land bases which would restore to Red Russia the complete domination of the Gulf of Finland that Czarist Russia enjoyed. Also Wants Petsamo What lights the shadows Is that Russia also wants Petsamo, port on the Arctic sea. Petsamo is outlet for nickel, of which Russia has none, and has i a big, ice-free harbor whence Murmansk could be seized and Russia invaded as British and American troops did in 1918.

Russia, if she is bent on an ef- fort to dominate the Scandinavian peninsula, must consider the possibility of war with Britain whom, most of the time since 1918, she has rated her deadliest enemy. If Russia were to obtain a foothold on the Norwegian coast, that would mean a quick outlet for Russian naval power (including nearly 200 submarines) into the Atlantic. Could Norway stand for that? Could Sweden? Cculd Britain? Even, perhaps, could unless she were very sure of Russia, who would then hold at her mercy supply of Swedish iron? The questions help to explain stand she believes, may not be quite alone. But those who know the Finns say they will fight, whether alone or with allies, if Russia forces them. They may again nego- quite possibly is all Russia really wants.

The final the Red Army or whether it wades into the Finnish help to unriddle the great riddle of inscrutable plans for the future of the U. S. S. R. and the world.

Surviving Latter Day Saints abandoned the settlement after burying their dead in the dry well and joined their brethren in the Mormon capital city of Far West where a day later they entered the general surrender to the state militia.
