  • Description

    DR. ADENAUER, WEST GERMANY'S 86-YEAR-OLD CHANCELLOR, IS SAID TO HAVE LEFT A FIRM IMPRESSION OF UNDIMINISHED VITALITY AND ZEST DURING HIS NON-STOP ELECTORAL TOUR. ON SEPTEMBER 11, HEARING THE END OF THE CAMPAIGN, HE ADDRESSED SOME 2000 SUPPORTERS OUTSIDE THE TOWN HALL AT HERFORD.

    REGARDLESS OF THE STREAMING RAIN, DR. ADENAUER SPOKE OF CURRENT TENSIONS BETWEEN EAST AND WEST (GERMAN SOF):
    ALTHOUGH PUBLIC OPINION BALLOTS SHOW THAT THE TWO MAIN WEST GERMAN PARTIES ARE RUNNING A CLOSE RACE IN THE PRESENT ELECTION CAMPAIGN, THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS ARE REPORTED TO BE ENTIRELY CONFIDENT OF WINNING THE ELECTION ON SEPTEMBER 17. IN ANOTHER SPEECH AT MINDEN THAT DAY, DR. ADENAUER DECLARED THAT MR. KHRUSHCHEV WAS CLEARLY AWARE THAT THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS WERE GOING TO WIN.

    IT IS SAID THAT DR. ADENAUER'S PARTY HAVE RECOVERED MUCH LOST GROUND BY PURSUING TWO REWARDING LINES OF ARGUMENT. THE FIRST IS THAT THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC IS CONFRONTED BY A SERIOUS CRISIS, WHICH ORIGINATED IN BERLIN BUT HAS NOW ASSUMED WORLD DIMENSIONS AND WHICH REQUIRES THE CHOICE OF AN EXPERIENCED LEADER, DR. ADENAUER. THE SECOND IS THAT HERR BRANDY, BURGOMASTER OF WEST BERLIN AND LEADER OF THE OPPOSING SOCIAL DEMOCRATS, IS NOT ONLY INEXPERIENCED, BUT RASH INTO THE BARGAIN.
