  • Description

    ENTHUSIASTIC CROWDS PACKED THE BERLIN OLYMPIC STADIUM YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) TO WATCH THE WEST GERMAN POLICE FORCE PRESENT ITS ANNUAL SHOW. THE FORCE GAVE A FIRST-CLASS PROGRAMME TO ENTERTAIN AN AUDIENCE WHICH INCLUDED HERR WILLI BRANDT, THE MAYOR OF BERLIN, AND MRS. ROSE KENNEDY, MOTHER OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY.

    AMONG THE OPENING ITEMS WAS A DISPLAY BY BANNER-BEARING ATHLETES. IN PERFECT TIME, THEY TWISTED AND SWUNG THE FLAGS IN A COLOURFUL DISPLAY. THIS WAS FOLLOWED BY A HUMAN PYRAMID ON MOTOR-CYCLES WHICH INTRODUCED A DEMONSTRATION OF TRICK MOTOR-CYCLING.

    AN UNUSUAL VARIATION OF THE FAMILIAR PERFORMANCE BY POLICE DOGS CAME WHEN ONE DOGS - WITH A SMALL RADIO STRAPPED TO ITS BACK - PURSUED A 'CRIMINAL' BY FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS FROM ITS HANDLER STANDING HIGH UP AMONG THE CROWD. THE SHOW FINISHED ON A PATRIOTIC NOTE WHEN THE BANNER-BEARERS STEPPED INTO THE ARENA ONCE MORE AND FORMED THE BEAR SYMBOL OF WEST BERLIN.
