    Background: On his arrival at Temple of Airport Mr. Averell Harriman, President Kennedy's Ambassador-at-large, was met by West Berlin's Chief Burgomaster, Willi Brandt, and other city officials.

    In West Berlin for six hours of talks with Herr Brandt, Mr. Harriman's first call was at the Schoneberg Town Hall, where he was officially greeted.

    After speeches by Brandt and Harriman, during which the latter re-firmed the American attitude to West Berlin, the American envoy resigned the golden visitor book, and was presented with a model of a bear, the symbol of West Berlin.

    Before he left Bonn, where he has spent the past two days in talks with Chancellor Adenauer, Foreign Minister Buentano, Economics Minister Erhard, Finance Minister Etzel, and leaders of the Special Democrat opposition, Mr. Harriman was questioned by newsmen about a statement he was reported to have made on American television two years ago, in which he is said to have stated that the Berlin situations could be modified if more acknowledgement was given to the Soviet Zone. Greatly annoyed, Mr. Harriman said he had been misquoted.
