    Background: DR ADENAUER, THE WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR, TOOK TIME OFF FROM INTERNATIONAL AND HOME POLITICS YESTERDAY (MONDAY) TO MARK CHRISTMAS EVE WITH A NOW TRADITIONAL VISIT TO THE CATHOLIC ORPHANAGE IN BONN.

    THE ORPHANAGE CHOIR ENTERTAINED THE CHANCELLOR WITH SEASONAL HYMNS AND CAROLS. LATER HE WAS SHOWN A MODEL, MADE BY THE CHILDREN, OF A NEW BUILDING THEY WOULD LIKE TO HAVE, "IF HE WOULD BUY THEM ONE". THE CHANCELLOR PROMISED TO SEE WHAT COULD BE DONE.

    DR ADENAUER HAS TAKEN A DEEP INTEREST IN BONN'S CATHOLIC ORPHANAGE EVER SINCE HE TOOK OFFICE IN 1949. FOR THE PAST THIRTEEN YEARS THE CHANCELLOR -- HIMSELF A PRACTISING ROMAN CATHOLIC -- HAS PAID REGULAR CHRISTMAS VISITS TO THE INSTITUTION. EVERY CHRISTMAS HE ACTS AS FATHER CHRISTMAS TO THE CHILDREN: THIS YEAR HE PRESENTED THEM WITH WATCHES.

    (LATER, THE CHANCELLOR VISITED THE PROTESTANT ORPHANAGE IN BONN, WHERE A LIVE TELEVISION PROGRAMME WAS MADE.)
