    WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR, PROFESSOR LUDWIG ERHARD, FLEW TO NEW YORK YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) AFTER RECEIVING AN HONORARY DEGREE AT HARVARD UNIVERSITY.

    HE WENT FIRST TO THE UNITED NATIONS BUILDING FOR TALKS WITH THE SECRETARY-GENERAL, U THANT, AND LATER ATTENDED A RECEPTION AT THE WALDORF ASTORIA WHERE HE MET GOVERNOR ROCKEFELLER WHO IS CURRENTLY CAMPAIGNING FOR THE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION.

    WHILE CHANCELLOR ERHARD WAS ATTENDING THE RECEPTION, A DEMONSTRATION TOOK PLACE OUTSIDE. IT WAS ORGANIZED BY THE "AMERICAN JEWISH YOUTH" WHO WERE PROTESTING AGAINST WHAT THEY ALLEGED TO BE "THE ACTIVITY OF 400 GERMAN SCIENTISTS IN EGYPT'S PROGRAMME TO DEVELOP OFFENSIVE MISSILES AND OTHER WEAPONS FOR ATTACK AGAINST ISRAEL."
    SPEAKING TO THE COUNCIL OF FOREIGN RELATIONS IN NEW YORK, CHANCELLOR ERHARD SAID LAST NIGHT THAT HIS COUNTRY WAS STRIVING TO IMPROVE HER RELATIONS WITH RUSSIA AND OTHER EAST EUROPEAN COUNTRIES, BECAUSE WEST GERMANS KNEW THAT EFFECTIVE RELAXATION OF TENSION DID NOT SOLELY DEPEND ON THE BIG POWERS.

    BUT HE SAID THERE COULD BE NO CONTRIBUTION TO AN EASING OF TENSION AT THE EXPENSE OF THE RIGHT OF SELF-DETERMINATION OF THE GERMAN PEOPLE, WHO WOULD NEVER ACCEPT THE DIVISION OF THEIR COUNTRY.

    "I ASK YOU, MY AMERICAN FRIENDS,"HE SAID, "TO BE CONVINCED THAT A FREE AND REUNITED GERMAN PEOPLE WILL BE AN ELEMENT OF TRANQUILLITY AND SECURITY IN EUROPE."
