S. determination to bully Europe into accepting American domination.  But in Bonn, Foreign Minister Walter Scheel, who hoi is the ro-. tating presidency of the Com-! mon Market ministerial council, made an obvious effort to soften the negative reaction to the President’s speech Friday in Chicago.  “We must now try to see that we do not unconsciously become involved in rivalry over political questions.” School declared in a television interview. He stressed the need for improved consulta-' lion procedures between the U. S. and Europe.  Scheel said Nixon had brought up old, unsolved problems. The Common Market, he said, seeks to harmonize its own foreign policy and thereby becomes “a factor in world politics and . . .J naturally also a factor for thej U.S. and its interests.”  The President’s threat that the U. S. might opt for independent trade and defense policies unless Europeans agree to closer cooperation angered and bewildered the Brussels headquarters of the Common Market  President Helps Open Home for 'Grand Opry'  Exporters Disagree On Price  VIENNA (AP) — Ministers of the world's chief oil exporting countries met for six hours Sat-  NASHVILLE, Tenn.

Boston will hold its parade today, as will Annapolis, Md , and many other communities Crowds up to 10-deep lined Fifth avenue to observe New York city’s 212th annual parade.  The parade, the annual reminder of the days when New York seemed to be an Irish city, brought bands and green  cardboard derbies and millions of freckles on thousands of marching schoolchildren But there were, too. the craggy-faced elderly men in non-descript overcoats proudly carrying a banner that read “Irish Republican Army Veterans.”  A few units behind them, a departure from the days when only the ritual slogan “England. Get Out of Ireland” was permitted, waved a white on blue banner. “Support the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Movement,”  And a bit farther back, behind potder-sized portraits of some who have died in the strife that now afflicts Northern Ireland, was an awkwardly lettered black on blood-red sign “Bloody Sunday Commemorative”  Not that the over-all tone of this massive march was somber.  Mayor Abraham Beanie, wearing a kelly green necktie  and a shamrock sprig pinned to his black raincoat by Helen Murphy, an Aer Lingus stewardess. was cheered repea-tedly by the seven-deep crowds that lined the avenue north to the reviewing stand “Ifs great to be here among mv fellow Irishmen ” quipped Beanie, the city's first Jewish mayor.  Among the generally amiable crowds, only one heckler chided the mayor’s choice of the British luxury liner, the Queen Elizabeth 2. as the site for his upcoming birthday celebration.  “Change your party to an Irish ship,” yelled the man, w ho said he was a member of the National Assn for Irish Freedom It snowed on Mayor Daley’s Chicago spectacle, replete with 70.IHM) marchers and 50 floats.

Meanwhile, a group of coeds at the University of Wisconsin said they’d honor the day with a “streak dance ” They said Saturday they hadn’t decided exactly when during the weekend to hold the ceremony, adding that it depended on the weather.  Two young men, wearing only shoes, green socks and green garters, ran through a Milwaukee bank on Friday, shouting:    “Happy    St. Pa  trick’s day ”  R a rn s e y county, Minn , authorities said they were prepared for any streakers. “I’m telling you,” said the sheriff, “anybody who runs naked is going to jail.’’ He was commenting on reports that college groups planned to streak through the St. Paul’s parade in honor of St. Patrick’s day.
