POLITICS IN NEW
By FRANK J. TAYLOR
(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
Berlin, March 20.- (By Mail.)--I
Pelitical line-ups in the first republic
reichstag, as the assembly is coming
to bi' called, hark back to the days
of the old regime--unfortunately per
haps. Parties stand for practeatly
the same principles, except that the
Catholics and democrats have be
come more liberal under pressure,
and the radicals have become more
violent and stronger. The socialists
who formerly were the radicals are
now the same in their demands, but
more conservative in spirit in iela
tion to the new times. The conscrva
ti ves stand pat.
In organIzation the new reichstag
began much as did the old. Ebert,
then chancellor by farewell appoint
iient of the kaiser, opened the first
'ession, and those who did not know
it already, soon found that every
thing was worked out beforehand in
meetings of the leaders of the so
iatled "citizen coalition" of the so
cialists, Catholics and deiocm ats. No
delegate needed to do anything, or
,.ay anything, unless his party s lead
ers called him to do so` Further.i1ore,
none did, except the radicals wi ho
never have lost an opportuui to
ratse an uproar.
In tlie reichstag directory the so
ehalists have 16" delegates, the Cath
eles, 89, and the democrats 74, an
overwhelming majority in everyl hiug
but noire, wherein the 65 members of
the two conservative parties are good,
but are more than outclassed when
it comes to a genuine riotous
reichstag uproar by the 22 rai.licals,
not the least of whom are three wom
en. Even the rad'est mat's hat-' +,

women when the latter start an augei

there might as well not be any

When that resolution is put to

around the proposition of soci eli sit'
