German Radicals Fear Restoration Of Military Rule By Frank J. Taylor (United Press Staff Correspondent.) Berlin, March 30. (By Mull.) Radi cal leaders in Germany aro sure they see In preparation a coming militury at tempt to control tho country tu 4he guise of the "League Against Bolshe vism," which is gaming strengin daily, and which linn millions of marks at its disposal. Their concern is not confiiied to sym pathy they may have for the Bolshevik cause, but in fear that the militarists will again get control of the country and the government. Some o" the fadi- ills go so far ss to say Germany is now pructieallv in the hands of the militar ists, and thut the Noske maneuvers aro simply a means by which the unsuspect ing government has militarism thrust upon it. The charge is harillv supported by tne government s artions in becoming more nnd more liberal in politics, under stress of attarcks from the workmen. How ever, there is reason to believe the rtd icals are not entirely without basts for their militarism fears. Germany's greatest militarism danger conns from tail seventy -nve inousuou officers nnd old army men within close proximity of Berlin, who made the army their profession formerly and who are now entirely unfitted for any other pro fession and lire not knen to take up ordinary work. It Is an open secret these men want to see a semblance of the old regime back. Their sitm.tion is pitable, since they have served their country faithful ly and are now without suport, unless the government continues the old sys tem of granting them government posi tions as a reward for their services. This is just whnt radicals fear, and they are condemning the cabinet for or dering the old system sustained, ct least until the present generation of officers and soldiers are no longer to be dealt with. These men are dungerous in the government the radicals claim, since ON TKAIX3 AM) XTW STANDS FI VI CENT BERLIN i Pill UNDER ARMY RULE i .

This, with the other forces the govern ment has under arms and the officer and soldiers at large, gives a militury force of some three hundred thousnnd, which, it is claimed by the radical lead ers, is pledged to rise to arms u caso the proletraiat gets the power iu Ger many. There is no doubt thut tho radkul kro prompted in their fears largely by resentment thut a military force pre vents them from joining forces withi the bolsheviks in Kiissis, but tnere is alsu ground for their belief that mili tarists are secretly organizing and are growing stronger. Whether they would use their organization against a demo cratic government is uncertain.
