    IN BERLIN, THE WATERWAYS ALONG THE EAST-WEST BORDER ARE ICEWAYS TOO.ON THE WESTERN SIDE FIVE STUDENTS DROVE ON ONE CANAL TO SEE IF THE ICE WOULD TAKE THE WEIGHT OF THEIR CAR.THE CAR SANK BUT THEY GOT OUT, SHOCKED AND COLD.

    ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE BORDER, APPEALS HAVE GONE OUT FOR THE "UTMOST ECONOMY" BY INDUSTRY AND HOMES IN USING COAL AND OTHER FUELS.THE LONG COLD WAVE HAS CAUSED A POWER SHORTAGE THERE TOO, THOUGH THE ICEBREAKERS ARE DOING THEIR BEST TO GET THE SUPPLY BARGES ON THE MOVE AGAIN.
