WARSAW (Reuter) - President Lech Walesa said Poland should prepare itself against the possibility of a new Communist revolution in Russia, urging support for his plan to create a National Guard.

He told a meeting of the National Defence Committee that Poland was in mortal danger. 'From the latest information I have received, a revolution of the October type is fast approaching in the east,' Mr Walesa said in remarks broadcast on Polish radio.

'If we do not come to our senses, if we do not prepare more effectively, organise more efficiently, we may not be able to meet the tasks and challenges which we face today.'
