  • Description

    DR. KONRAD ADENAUER, WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR, TOLD THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATIC PARTY CONFERENCE AT DORTMUND JUNE 3 THAT THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HIMSELF AND U.S. PRESIDENT KENNEDY WERE THINGS OF THE PAST, AND WARNED THAT THE COMMON MARKET COULD NOT "DIGEST THE ENORMOUS COMMONWEALTH", A PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED BEFORE BRITAIN ENTERED THE MARKET.

    APPARENTLY IN EXCELLENT HEALTH, HE MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE HAD NO INTENTION FOR THE TIME BEING OF STEPPING DOWN, DESPITE SUCH DEMANDS FROM THE OPPOSITION AND REPORTS THAT HE NO LONGER ENJOYED THE CONFIDENCE AND SUPPORT OF HIS PARTY.

    HIS REFERENCES TO DIFFERENCES WITH PRESIDENT KENNEDY WAS THE FIRST TIME HE HAD ADMITTED PUBLICLY THAT THESE HAD EVER EXISTED. THEY AROSE OVER PROPOSALS DEALING WITH THE CREATION OF AN INTERNATIONAL AUTHORITY TO CONTROL ACCESS TO WEST BERLIN. HE FELT THE AMERICAN PLAN WOULD GIVE FURTHER RECOGNITION TO COMMUNIST EAST GERMANY. "IT IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL", HE SAID","THAT THE LEADERSHIP OF THE WESTERN WORLD REMAIN WITH THE UNITED STATES. AND THE UNITED STATES MUST HAVE IN EUROPE A VALUABLE PARTNER."
    REGARDING THE COMMON MARKET, DR. ADENAUER SAID BRITAIN'S SITUATION IN VIEW OF ITS APPLICATION TO JOIN THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY WAS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT. " I WANT BRITAIN IN", "HE SAID", NOTING THAT HE UNDERSTOOD BRITAINS PREDICAMENT BECAUSE OF ITS TIES TO THE COMMONWEALTH. "BUT WE ON THE OTHER SIDE CANNOT DIGEST THIS ENORMOUS COMMONWEALTH WITH ITS GREAT ECONOMIC AREAS."
