OLD BOASTINGS RENEWED
(Received April 2, 2.30 p.m.) (" The Times." Service.)
LONDON, March 26. Mr Tower writes that the alleged Hungarian alliance with the Bolsheviki resulted in an immediate reactionary agitation in Berlin. Numerous meetings of protest against the peace terms and cession of territory were held. These meetings were engineered by former well-known militarists. Mho appeared like mushrooms.
The National Union of German Officers paraded the streets with the Imperial colours flying, and bands playing the ex-Kaiser's hymns. The'parade halted at the Bismarck statue and swore ceremonial oaths of allegiance toj the frontiers he founded. Simultaneously, Ludendorff appeared, and the crowds cheered, and then swarmed round tn"e statue and joined the band, which was playing the national hymn, concluding with the dramatic chant "Lord Make us Free."
Ministerialist Schoffer addressed the gathering, swearing,-dramatically that the Government would hot surrender an inch of territory east or west.
