Communist leader Walter Ul- bricht stood on the reviewing stand with top military officers and answered the salute of goose-stepping East German troops. The Marx-Engels square, only a few hundred yards from the Berlin wall was bedecked with red Hags. The parade opened with a 20- minute military display that featured tanks' heavy guns and rocketry. The East Germans showed, the usual T-55 Soviet tanks, along with surface-to-air and ground-to-ground missiles. DORTMUND (AP) Chan- cellor Willy Brandt said Friday West Germany's long-range goal must be. a contribution to making peace in Europe de- pendent on understanding and trust instead of on "a balance of horror." Speaking at a May Day cele- bration to the Federation of West German Unions in the heart of the industrial Hhur, Brandt said: "I know that this goal is a long way off. I know that it can- not be reached without willing- ness of all sides but I am firmly convinced that all states must have a deep-seated interest in reducing the armaments burden in order to use their strength for solving domestic issues."
