Despite strong opposition from the Socialists, who raised the cry of "militarism," the bill providing for a "national army of defense" has passed second reading. Debate upon this meosure shows that the spirit of militarism is still alive. Socialist opponents of the bill de clared it is a measure which means "the resurrection of militarism for the suppression of the revolutionary forces." "This bill is aimed to check the grow ing chaos." declared War Minister Gus tave Noske. of the people's party. "Our old army was the best ip the world. We will never forget what it did in the war." In defending the measure. Noske said further: "It would be criminal carelessness if the government did not protect the East Prussion frontiers from the Bolshevfk menace. Foreign coun tries have no occasion for mistrust." CALLS LEAGUE CRITICS "DEAD BUT UNBURIED"!

"The last position in tho parade Is not commonly considered a position of honor," said Colonel Harper, "and. therefore, the assignment of the parents' section to tho last parade po sition was not made until after care ful consideration. "As the parents section was being formed It became evident that many of .the fathers and mothers of sol diers are aged and probably too old to cover the entire length of the pa rade. Some of these parents, it was found, undoubtedly would drop out of the line after marching- only a part of the route. "Therefore. It was deemed best to give them the last position, so that all who wanted might drop out with out difficulty. The committee in charge requested the last position for tho parents for the safety and com fort of -the parents, and this was the sole reason for assigning the moth ers and fathers to the last position.
