    With the official opening - October 7 - of East Germany's 10th anniversary celebrations, President Pick - too ill to attend the celebrations in person - received public greetings at his East Berlin residence from a government and party delegation. Afterwards, the President chatted with his guests in the garden. He has been President since the foundation of the East German Republic ten years ago.

    Among those who came to convey the people's greetings were Prime Minister Grotewonl, and the Deputy Prime Minister, Herr Ulbricht.

    The East German celebrations were marked by a clash between West German police and the East Berlin railway-workers, when the railwaymen hoisted the East German flag over West Berlin stations, part of which are East German Railway Board property.

    In a speech during the ceremonies, Herr Ulbricht said that West Berlin might be given a status similar to that of the Vatican in Rome.
