BOLSHEVTKI HAVE CHARGE OF "

There has been a revolution in Hun

taken-charge of the government, and
declared war on the entente. Russian
influence is said to be behind the rev-olutioniste;-'

"The proclamation of the Hungarian
revolutienlsta declares that the action
of the peace conference is one of the
chief causes of the unrest Thus, far
the 'conference has taken no specific
action regarding Hungary, but the rec

ment' of old Hungary rAvith s circle of

L Situation Explained
One of the officials who is taking a
chief part in the readjustment of ten
ntory in that quarter of Europe has
explained the situation . as follows:
Bohemia has been detached from the
northwest of old Hungary. The ad
joining country of the Slovaks has also
been detached. . The Bohemians are ,
Czechs and with the "Slovaks form the
new tfeecho-Slovak nation, both parts
being detached from Hungary. The
Ruthemans form the wedge next to
the Slovaks and this territory has also
been taken from Hungary. .
Next to the Ruthenians comes
Transylvania, which likewise has been
detached from old Hungary and given
to Rumania. Next to Transylvania
comes the Banat region, which has
been detached from Austria and given
to Rumania nearly to the Temes river,
the remainder of Banat going to Ser-
Dia.
Further west the new Jugo-Slav
state receives that cart of old Hun
gary up to the River Drave. These
changes form an almost complete cir
cle, leaving new Hungary only a com
pact center occupying the rich Danu-
bian plain. - .
All the foregoing recommendations.
it is pointed out were Justified by ,the
principle of nationality' and self-de
termination as enunciated bv Presi
deionI BohaiaiaWovalie,
nutnemans- and MTansyivaniana as
well as the inhabitants of Banat are
radically Slavic or Rumanian and have
no ethnological connection with Hun
garians who have held the circle of
surrounding territory only through the
powerful political influence of the
Hungarian magyars.

AMENDMENT PROTECTING ' '
INFLUX OF FOREIGN LABOR
Paris, March 25 Virtually all the
commissions and sub-commissions of
the peace conference are waiting- for
instructions irom tne supreme council
in order to close and submit their re-. .
ports. ' Y- '
it is said that except ior instruc
tions on certain broad principles which
must come from the Premiers, the to- ,?
ports are ready to be submitted with
in a few hours after the instructions
are received. : ! t vl v"
An American amendment to protect r .
nations against the influx of foreign
labor was adopted today by the league
of nations commission. It affirms the
right of any country in the league to
control matters solely within domestic
jurisdiction.
Another important amendment to
the league covenant affects article
VIII, which empowers the executive
council to formulate a plan for, the re-:
duction of armaments. The language
of the article is altered so as to limit
the powers of the councilja a simple
recommendation to tne government"
affected.
