    Background: Continuing his twelve-day visit to the United States, West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer visited the National Gallery of Art in Washington Mar 17. He arrived in Washington Mar 15 and had talks with President Eisenhower Mar 16.

    After Chancellor Adenauer had left the Art Gallery it was found that two crudely drawn swastikas - the nazi emblem - had been scribbled in the guest book above his signature. They were not there when he signed.

    US Secretary of State, Christian Herter, expressed great shock on hearing of the incident, and ordered an immediate inquiry.

    Chancellor Adenauer left Washington the same day for Los Angeles, California. From there he will go to Florida, Honolulu and a State visit to Japan.

    Purpose of his visit is said to be policy talks with American leaders on the future of a unified Germany before the Paris 'Summit' talks in May.
