    Background: WEST BERLINERS SHOWED NO SIGNS OF THE TENSE SITUATION EXISTING IN THEIR DIVIDED CITY WHEN THEY PACKED THE OLYMPIC STADIUM SEPTEMBER 10 FOR THE ANNUAL DEMONSTRATION BY THE POLICE.

    THE EVENT, WHICH MARKED THE START OF THE AUTUMN FESTIVAL, OPENED WITH A PARADE ROUND THE ARENA BY BRITISH GUESTS FOR THE OCCASION - THE BAND OF THE ROYAL WELCH FUSILIERS. THEN CAME A BIG WELCOME FOR THE WEST BERLIN POLICE AS THEY SMARTLY MARCHED PAST THE STANDS.

    HIGHLIGHT OF THE DAY WAS THE ASSAULT COURSE. THE CROWDS ROARED THEIR APPRECIATION AS COMPETITORS DIVED INTO WATER TANKS AND STRUGGLED OUT TO CONTINUE THE RACE OVER HURDLES. OTHER ATTRACTIONS INCLUDED JUDO AND DRILL DISPLAYS - ALL PERFORMED WITH TRADITIONAL THOROUGHNESS.
