Berlin, via Copenhagen, Nov. 25.
Strange are ti clences of a tray

were many a' I varied governmental

Nowadays, when you go to a police
station, the desk sergeant will say

Another feature of the "new free
dom" in Germany, which may surprise
he traveler, is that the private soldier
no longer salutes his superior officers.
The .oh'licr calls his officer "coin
rade." Berlin outwardly is orderly as
ever, but order is no longer maintained
b~ olicemen, but by soldiers with
a bands as a badge of office. The
pi re is familiar to those who saw
Petrograd during the Kerensky re
rime. Another sight recalling Petro
grad, are the military and royal auto
mobiles--the latter still sounding a
musicl call, denoting the approach of

streets with loads of soldiers.
The pi-evailing tone in Berlin is still
am iltary. but it is a militarism of pri
vates and non-comiin issionei officer..
