The best summary of the new scheme
which has yet appeared is published
in a Swedish newspaper, the Gothen-
burg Tidningen, from the pen of a
German propagandist. He outlines
the project as follows:
."The future central Europe-Russian
P~ "block," among other aims, will have
before it the mighty task of bringing
e, the great riches of Russia into the
world market. For this purpose there
are two natural windows on the west;
opie is Hamburg, the other Copenhag-
en. Those two towns will become the
great markets of the world. The pro-
duce of southwestern Russia will go
by the Danube and Rhine-Elbe water-
ways to Hamburg; the riches of cen-
tral and northwestern Russia will go
by the Dvina and Volga to the Baltic
and Copenhagen. In this manner an
interchange of produce and manufac-
Ii. tures will be realized between Scan-
u!IluF-dinavia, the central European block,
- Russia, and the whole Mohammedan


nisteel, chairman
at the meeting.

Germans Welcomed
"The Germans have been given a
friendly welcome by the Baltic peoples
who hail them as liberators. Ger-
many's occupation of this- territory will
have results that no peace conference
can prevent. Germany has opened up
prospects of a northern Mediterran-
ean, the waters of which are now un-
der her control. Moreover, Germany's
plans for activity still further north
are being materially assisted by the
increasing friendliness of the Finnish
people. While' Finnish socialists are
fraternizing with Russian soldiers,
Germany is winning the friendship of
the middle classes and the peasants
of Finland.
"Germany, however, , is meditating
neither the incorporation of Finland
in. the German empire nor any kind
of political alliance, but rather an
economic alliance. She would be de-
lighted to see Finland united to cen-
tral Europe as part of the economic
block, thus extending German econo-
mic power far to the north..
No Outlet for Russia
"If Germany gains control of the
Baltic, and Finland becomes an inde-
pendent state, joined by economic alli-
ance with central Europe, there will
be no outlet for Russia westward ex-1
cept through this economic alliance.
Even the western powers cannot help
Russia here. Yet Russia must do her
utmost to retain for herself economic
breathing space in the west. She can-
not dispense with the powerful cen-
tral European block. It would hard-
ly be to Russia's advantage to even
try to fight her own way, even with
the assistance of the western powers;
the map shows this. Russia, once
peace has been restored, will gradually
incline herself to the central European
block. his will be in keeping with
her natural economic development.
"In order to recover, Russia must;
above all, procure an outlet and mark-
et for her important natural riches.
With no free passage to the west, she
will avail herself partly of the assist-
ance of the central European block1
and partly of Scandinavia."
