  • Description

    ITS REPORTED THAT TWO THOUSAND QUESTS ASSEMBLED IN A NYLON TENT - CALLED AN AIR HALL - SPECIALLY ERECTED IN ESSEN FOR THE CELEBRATIONS, NOVEMBER 20TH OF THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDING OF THE KRUPP EMPIRE.

    ALFRIED KRUPP VON BOHLEN AND HALBACH GREETED GUESTS INCLUDING FORMER PRESIDENT HEUSS, BONN DIPLOMATIC MENDE, OLLENHAUER, EHRHARD, AND GERSTENHEIMER. OUTSIDE, THE KRUPP MINERS BAND PLAYED MERRY GERMAN MUSIC, INSIDE, SPEECHES WERE MADE BY KRUPP AND HEUSS.

    A NEW PLAN TO CURE THE KRUPP EMPIRE, HAS JUST BEEN ANNOUNCED BY THE EUROPEAN COAL AND STEEL COMMUNITY. KRUPP HAS ALWAYS CLAIMED HE COULD NOT CARRY OUT THE ALLIED ORDER TO SELL HIS RHEIMMAUSE-HANNIBAL COAL AND STEEL COMBINE FOR WANT OF A BUYER. THE ECSC PLAN - TO QUOTE THE OFFICIAL JARGON - WOULD "LEAVE THE KRUPP EMPIRE INTACT WITHIN A DECENTRALISED FRAMEWORK". THE BUSINESS WOULD BE HANDED OVER TO CONTROL BY A PHILANTHROPIC TRUST SIMILAR TO THOSE WHICH CONTROL MANY MAMMOTH AMERICAN BUSINESS EMPIRES.
