THE NEW MAP OF EUROPE As a result of tho carving of Europe after the Groat War, thero will be much to bo unlearnt in the geography of that continent as it has been fa- miliar to us. Tho polltic.il geography of Europe has undergone a mighty change, and even thoso who have fol- lowed the allotment" aad delineation of territories can bardly figure in their-mind's the various ramifi- cations which the modern map of Europe possesses. The- current number of the Nation- al Geographic Magulne- contains -informative-and- interesting ac- moro than lubjeels, to 000 gtiuani mill's, with peo- ple. liulsaria pays ll the ot hci i-astinj; IUM- lot with Germany durlnj (he war tho denuding of territory for- merly known u Bnljarija Thrace, goes tu Greece, which galas possession of Uio Important lit torjal ot the Arcean Sea.

The new boundaries give tho Kingdom an area of approximately square miles. Turkey in Kuropo la now scarcely more than a small tract land (the Chatalja District) Constantinople, embracing tho area from which the Sublime Porte geti its water. The Dardanelles, the Bos porus, and the -shores of tho sea Marmora, become "The Zone of the controlled and governed bj an Interallied Commission, and small area, known the Sulva Re serration.

As it reminds its readers, for the first time in human experience the.effort has been made by victors after a groat war to trace the new frontiers in accordance with the racial aspirations and affinities of the peoples involved. Bnt, it is wisely observed, that, because of the impos- sibility of defining exactly the limit, of a nice, many heart-burnings are in- evitable in the new adjustment of European boundaries. Tho new ad- justments mny he, therefore, taken to be not as perfect as some may de- Eire, but as near perfect as possible in accordance with the guiding prin- ciple that it. Germany pays the penalty for her inordinate ambition to have her place In the sun by being shorn of territory j to ths extent of 5600 square miles and j has long fretted over the nearly inhabitants by tho ownership of -Aland Archipelago, recession to Franco of the provinces I owing to its strategic command of the Thrace, which to the southwest of Constantinople. Among the new republics that have arisen in Europe as a result of war is the Repmblic of Finland. After having been an annex of the Rasa (an Empire as an autonomous grand- duchy for -more than a century. It has acquired Independence. One of th'3 most serious controversial issues growing out of the establishment of the Finnish Republic, tha article un- der notice points out, has been the disposition of the Aland Islands in tha Baltic. property of Sweden, the 3000 rocJry islands, of which, perhape, are inhabited. were ceded with Finland to Russia more than a century ago. of Alsace and Lorraine. In addition to tats she has had tq surrender control of the valuable Saar Valley coalfield as a compensation for the wanton de- struction of northern during Its temporary occupation during the war. la respect to this particular area tiio Treaty of Versailles that fifteen years from its coming into force the inhabitants will be given the right of determination by a plebis cite as to whether they wish to re- main under the present control of Commission, of the League of Na- tions, become part of tho French State, or revert to Germany. Belgium gains a slice of former Ger- man territory by 'being given full sov- ereignty over the sections of the tiny area known as Moresnet Neutral Moresnet and Prussian Moresnet and of the Kreise, or district, la which are the small towns of Eupen and Valmedy. This alters her political frontier in juxtaposition to Germany. To Poland, now made- an indepen- republic, Germany has been mads to surrender a portion of terri tory with a population o! together with the seaport of Dantzig, on tho Baltic, to give the fcew territory an outlet. This port becomes the "Free City ot under the protection of the League of Nations. The Meme'l district, to the northeast of East Prussia, is en- trusted to the Allied and Associated Powers pending a final settlement of its eovereignty. "What -was formerly known tachJeswig-Holstein, and which be- longed to Germany, has been split up as a result of plebiscites of the in- habitants. The .people of Holstein and Southern Schleswig elected to be- come reincorporated into the Ger- Kian State; Northern Schleswig voted to return to Denmark.. The Kiel Canal, the pride of Ger- many, it may bo observed, is thrown open to the merchant shipping of all nations at peace with Germany, while all Its fortifications, together with of Heligoland, entrance, have been dismantled at German expense. The rantahackle empire of 'Austria- Hungary, as it was wont .to be called, baa been properly disintegrated.

The matter of decision now rests with a commission to an inquiry and to submit recommenda- tions. In the independent territories which the war has created'in Europe are the republics of Esthonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. are Baltic States. The Republic of Ctechoslavakia is another, which stretches from eastern Germany to -northwestern Rumania. By development of the waterway-s of the country and tbe construction of Czechoslavakia, while without a seacoast, will have access to three the Black Sea by way of the Danube, to the Baltic by way of the Oder, and to the North Sea by way of the Elbe. The apportionment of territory to the new Jugo-Slav State has been a problem since the first sessions of the Peace Conference in Paris, and with this has figured largely, in recent times, the altercation over Fiume in which has loomed tbe name of that romantic character, Gabriele d' -An- nunzio. The matter -was finally settled by the agreement reached at Rapallo which is recent history. The popula- tion of Fiume is mainly Italian, but the hinterland is almost exclusively Slavic, and the city is the only fully developed and equipped seaport by which the commerce of the Jr.go-Slav State has outlet to tho Adriatic. Some of the other of the Dalmatian Cat- taro, and Me tko equally good or even better harbors, but they are undeveloped and are not connect- ed with the interior by standard- gauge railways. By the effected at Rapallo, the port of Fiume becomes the "Free State af analogous to the status of Dantzig. A commission composed of Italian and Jugo-Siav members will settle-all technical questions regarding traffic to the port, with due regard to the needs of Jugo-Slavia, Sushak, the Croat suburb of Fiume, is to remain to Jugo-Slavla, but with the privilege of joining its port to Flume if it desires to do so. By tho terms of the Hapallo agreement, the Dalmatian coast and islands become a part of tlic new state of Jugo-SIavia, with the exception of thn town of Zara and two or three islands, the most important of which are Chorso and Lagos to, allotted to Italy. .Tn go-Slur la includes the former of Servia aud UM Do You Know?
