Americanism Imposing Display Despite Absence Of 0. S. Forces WOULD STOP ALL CELEBRATIONS 1 OF VICTORIES OVER THE BRITISII NEW YORK, March 17 Immigrants arriving at the Battery today from Ellis Island evidenced a dislike for radical doctrines when they attacked a man who nailed a placard to a nearby post, advocating the overthrow of the United States Government. Policemen were obliged to use force in protecting the man, who was arrested on a charge of criminal anarchy. He said he was Joseph J. Greenberg, a native of Rumania, and came to this country seven years ago. The immigrants, numbering more than 100, were alighting from a barge when they saw the placard go up. It read, "Down with the United States Government. It is unfair to the workers." Some of the immigrants could read English, and the meaning of the sign was quickly interpreted to others. Greenberg was immediately the center of attention and was backed up against the side of the barge office until police officers rescued him. The police reported they found several sketches, maps and mechanical devices in Gieenberg's possession, which were turned over to the Bomb Squad for examination. -Now I Am Worn Out The ietter of Mr Bonar Law expressed i regret that he was unable to continue! bis pclural work.

Representative Kelly said: "There has been so much interference with the celebration of Evacuation Day that I think it would be well to cut out all celebrations of victories over the British. "I am sure British propaganda is responsible. They are constantly interfering and trying to dictate, even in the public schools. British propaganda has been successful in stop-ping the celebration of Evacuation Day and, as that is th case, I am in favor of stopping all celebrations."

Ale; in On WASHINGTON, March 17 Action of army and navy officers in refusing to permit troops to participate in an Evacuation Day parade at South Boston was formally approved today by- President Harding, after a conference with Sec Hughes and Sec Weeks. In a telegram to John F. Harrigan of Boston, George B. Christian Jr, President Harding's secretary, said: "The naval and military forces of the Nation can have no part in any demonstration which may be construed as influencing the foreign relations of the republic." The question of using Federal ' troops in the parade came to the President's attention through a tele- j gram from John F. Harrigan of Bos- ton, State president of the American j Association for Recognition of the Irish Republic, who asked whether "Autocratic" rulings by the army and navy officers in command of the j troops were to be backed up by the ' White House. In reply George B. Christian Jr, the President's secre-1 tary, sent Mr Harrigan the following and naval officers in direct charge of the troops at Boston are understood Continued on the Eleventh Page. Despite many serious handicaps the Evacuation Day parade, commemorating the 146th anniversary of the evacuation of Boston by the British, started over its route promptly at 2:30 this afternoon. Dr William H. Griffin, chief marshal, stated just before the parade j than an officer's first duty is to obey. "I am obeying my orders from Commandant H. O. Dunn," he said, "in not wearing the uniform of ine iavai nesei ve. ui a silk hat and frock coat. There was great enthusiasm in the streets in the vicinity of Andrew sq for several hours prior to the start of the parade. Great throngs gathered in different sections to get an idea as to just who and how many would turn out. It was estimated that at the time the parade was started there were 10,000 ready to march and there were still others getting into line. Old residents of the district in the vicinity of the formation point expressed the I BTKPHKN K1T.PATHH K.
