  • Description

    GERMANY AT CHRISTMASTIDE - A LAND OF TWINKLING CHRISTMAS TREES. IN BERLIN, THE DIVIDED CITY, THEY THROW THEIR SHADOWS ACROSS THE EAST GERMAN WALL WHERE AT LEAST 41 PEOPLE HAVE MET THEIR DEATHS SINCE IT WENT UP IN AUGUST 1961.

    LAST YEAR 1,000 OF THEM WERE PUT UP ON THE WEST BERLIN SIDE AND CEREMONIOUSLY ILLUMINATED ALONG THE 25-MILE BORDER. THIS DREW AN EAST GERMAN SPOKESMAN TO DENOUNCE IT AS "WESTERN DEPRAVITY." HOWEVER THIS YEAR ONE OR TWO TREES ARE STARTING TO APPEAR ON THE EAST ZONE SIDE TOO.

    NEAR HERE TODAY (SUNDAY) - A BOMB EXPLOSION BLASTED A HOLE IN THE WALL, SMASHING ABOUT 150 WINDOWS OF HOUSES ON BOTH SIDES. IT'S BELIEVED THE EXPLOSION WAS SET OFF ON THE EAST SIDE.

    ON BERLIN ITSELF, REPORTS ARE CIRCULATING THAT THE SOVIET GOVERNMENT IS CHANGING ITS POLICY AND HAS ABANDONED ITS INTENTION FOR THE MOMENT TO SIGN THE SEPARATE PEACE TREATY WITH EAST GERMANY.
