PROF. MEADER SAYS RUSSIA
IS NOT YET OUT OF THE WAR
Declaring that Russia is not yet
out of the war by any means, Prof.
Clarence L. Meader of the literary cel-
lege, explained to the freshman engin-
ers at their assembly yesterday, how
Russia's armies are still fighting on
one front, and continue to be an im-
portant factor in the Dar as an aid to
"People forget, in times like these,
the great aid that Russia rendered in
the early part of the war," said Pro-
.fessor Meader, "her armies contri-
buted more than half toward the'sav-
ing of Paris when the Germans were
within 20 miles of its gates. Had it
not been for the withdrawal of the
German forces, made necessary by
Russia's great drive in the east, there
is no doubt that the Huns would have
gone straight through to Paris."
"It was the collapse of the Russian
army that caused the revolution, not
the revolution that caused the collapse
of the army. The men fought on in
spite of treachery, among officers and'
even among court officials. The Czar
himself was 99 per cent Geramn and
married to a German, while his min-
ister of war was a pronounced sym-
"It was this condition of affairs that,
finally brought about the collapse of
the army's fighting power, and, after-
ward, the revolution."

one quarter of the whole enrollment,
