  • Description

    THE EAST GERMAN LEADERS, HERR WALTER ULBRICHT, CONTINUING HIS TOUR OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC, YESTERDAY (FRIDAY), VISITED TOMBS OF ANCIENT EGYPTIAN RULERS NEAR THE CITY OF LUXOR.

    HERR ULBRICHT FLEW FROM CAIRO TO LUXOR. HE WAS GREETED BY A LARGE CROWD BEFORE CROSSING THE NILE TO THE WESTERN BANK. THERE, THE 72-YEAR-OLD LEADER SPENT SOME TIME LOOKING AT GRAVES OF THE PHARAOHS. AMONG THEM WAS THE TOMB OF THE 18TH DYNASTY CHILD-KING, TUTANKHAMEN. THIS GRAVE -- ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS ON THE NILE -- WAS DISCOVERED IN 1922 BY A BRITISH EGYPTOLOGIST, HOWARD CARTER.

    LATER, HERR ULBRICHT INSPECTED THE HUGE KARNAK TEMPLE -- BUILT BY THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AS A CENTRE OF WORSHIP TO THEIR GODS. AFTER THE VISIT, HERR ULBRICHT SAID THAT WHAT HE SAW "ROUSES AND DEEPENS RESPECT FOR MANKIND".
