Believe Decision to Invite Bolshevik Re- presentatives to Paris Constitutes Vic- tory for That Former Minister Says Bolsheviki do Not Represent-Rus- sia. The Associated Press.) Paris, Jan. Russian leaders Here think Sfiat the decision of the supreme council of the peace Congress to invite the Bolshevist leaders to a con- ference constitutes the greatest victory that Bol- shevism could eVer hope to attain. It would not be surprising, however, if the Bolshevists would refuse to participate in the meeting, they say, using the same impertinent language which they have al- ready adopted in tfieir communications with Presi- dent Wilson. Sergius Sazonof f, former Russian foreign min- ister, and Prince LVpff, former premier, are united in their opposition to the plan, insisting that the non-Bolshevist element of Russia, which is the ma- jority, will be adversely influenced by the decision. Milukoff Surprised London, Jan. N.

"The Bolsheviki are in no wise representative of the Rus- sian people. They are robbers and cut throats, mad dogs who wish to bite others so-that all may be- mad." He said the only way to. settle the Russian problem was to overthrow the Bolshevik rule there, which he declared was sim- plyterrorism and to the majority of the He stated that if the Allies would supply guns and muni- Russians would overthrow Bolshevism.

C., Jan. the announcement yesterday that vir- tually the complete strength of the 27th (New York national guard) dif vision had been assigned for early convoy by General PershingVplans be- gan to take shape here for an ade- quate reception to this first combat division to return. If it is found practical to do York city will be given an opportunity to see the organization on parade at full war strength, with -its- fighting equip- its recovered wounded and its battle trophies before it is demobil- ized. Secretary Baker reiterated today his desire that wherever possible either the full strength or substan- tial portion of returning combat di- visions parade in large cities in the section from which they came.- "For said the secretary, "the black Hawk (86th) division, comes largely from Chicago. I am hoping to be able to work put a plan by which a substantial part of that division can parade in Chicago. This division will go to Camp Grant, which is a considerable distance from Chir cago, and the arrangements for getting the whole division to Chi- cago, will very Complicated, and, perhaps, impossible; One plan may be. to have the troops sent through- the city first, 'allowed to detrain, parade and Uien entrain again for camp, thus breaking the railroad Journey." Mr. Baker again expressed a strong wish that the 42d (Rainbow) divis- ion, now with the Americaji army on the Rhine, parade in' Washington as representative of the.entire coun- try and the whole fighting army. Whether it will be possible to ar- range for a complete divisional pa- rade of the 27th depends 'factors, it was said at the war de- partment. In any case, however, a substantial portion of the division will be paraded before it disbands, Camp Upton having been selected as the demobilization .point for the di- vision, with that end in view. Mr. Baker announced that men of the 27th who have already returned, even those who have been, mustered out, would be given an opportunity to march "with their comrades. The sick and wounded will be carried in ambulances or other motor transport. The units of the'27th assigned for return include both Infantry and the artillery brigades, as' well as the di- visional trains, machine gun battal- ions anrj have an aggregate strength of more than 900 .officers, and. men out of a full divisional strength of about The men will return with their side arms, but as yet no artillery has been shipped home from France and presumably none of the motor transport equipment of the trains will accompany the troops homeward, t is possible, however, that hors.es, guns and other equjp- ment to the command a full par- ade complement will be assembled at Camp Upton for its use. If 'the return of the units of the 27th 'is spread over a considerable period of time It may be found im- possible to hold the first arrivals at Camp Upton until the strength is as- sembled. In that event, however, the large units, such as the infantry bri-' gades will be paraded. The units of the 27th specicically assigned for convoy .are: Division (headquarters and headquarters troop, 104th machine gun battalion, 63d in- fantry brigade headquarters, 105th and 106th infantry, 105th machine gun battalions, 54th infantry bri- gade, 107th and 108th infantry, 106th machine gun battalion, 52d field artillery brigade headquarters, 104th, 105th and 106th field artil- lery, 102d engineers, 102d field bat- talion, signal corps, 102d train head- quarters, 27th company, military police corps, 102d ammunition train, 102d supply train, 102d engineer 102d supply train ammunition 'train, train, 102d sanitary train, mo- bile veterinary section, cement mill company No. 1, and the 535th steve- dore company. The list shows that not only are the infantry brigades which aided in the breaking of the Hindenburg line under their Major General John F. O'Ryan, soon to be on their way home, but that the mili- tary brigade of the division which .served with the American army has been concentrated again with the di- In accordance wit hthe an- nounced plans of the war depart- ment the division will go to" Camp Upton for demobilization and will be. paraded in full strength in New York city before it is demobilised. Since many casualties were suffer- ed in the fighting with the British army with which it started, it has been necessary to fill the division up with replacement troops, and it is assumed that the great majority of these men are from New York in or- der to retain th'e state character.' be Offered Presidency of Exe- "cutive Body to Conduct Pro- posed Leap (By the Associated Press) Paris, ...Jan....

The first subject on the order of. business, will-be international legislation on labor. Under the instructions given at the first ses- sion, the various national delegates have been pre- paring written statements of their views on the labor subject and it is understood that under a spe- cial order these will be received by the congress and referred to a committee which will give careful study of the various reports and endeavor to amal- gamate them into a general project to be recom- mended to .the congress for approval. America's views are believed to harmonize in many .respects with those held by the British delegates. There is reason to be- adhere- to the practice of withholding such reports from publication tin- til formerly presented before'the congress, it is believed that the propositions of the United States are based on full of the principles of the international protection of labor by gov-; ernment agencies, thus offsetting what is regarded as a danger-- otis tendency toward class control of governments.
