    LATER, MR.RUSK HAD A 50-MINUTE LONG CHAT WITH THE FORMER CHANCELLOR, DR.ADENAUER, DURING WHICH THE FORMER STATESMAN IS BELIEVED TO HAVE URGED THE AMERICANS NOT TO WITHDRAW TROOPS FROM WEST GERMANY.

    MR.RUSK ALSO HAD TALKS WITH THE WEST GERMAN DEFENCE MINISTER, HERR VON HASSELL.COMPLETE AGREEMENT ON "ALL QUESTIONS OF DEFENCE POLICY" WAS THE RESULT ACCORDING TO A SPOKESMAN AFTERWARDS.

    THE SITUATION CAUSED BY THE SUCCESS OF "OPERATION BIG LIFT" HAS CAUSED WIDESPREAD CONCERN IN WEST GERMAN POLITICAL CIRCLES.IN THIS OPERATION 15,000 U.S.ARMY TROOPS WERE FLOWN TO WEST GERMANY FROM TEXAS, ENABLING A COMPLETE ARMOURED DIVISION TO TAKE THE FIELD WITHIN A FEW DAYS.SINCE THE COST OF MAINTAINING GARRISONS OVERSEAS IS FAR HIGHER THAN AT HOME, CLEARLY THE PENTAGON WOULD BE INTERESTED IN BRINGING FOREIGN-BASED TROOPS BACK TO AMERICA.
