  • Description

    DR. KONRAD ADENAUER, FORMER CHANCELLOR OF WEST GERMANY, CELEBRATED HIS 89TH BIRTHDAY TODAY (TUESDAY). WEST GERMANY LEADERS PAID TRIBUTE TO THEIR FORMER LEADER ON HIS BIRTHDAY IN A PUBLIC DISPLAY OF THE NEW-FOUND UNITY OF THE RULING CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

    PROFESSOR LUDWIG ERHARD, WHO SUCCEEDED DR. ADENAUER AS CHANCELLOR IN 1963, WAS AMONG THE MANY HUNDREDS OF QUESTS AT BONN'S MODERN BEETHOVENHALLE WHERE THE FORMER CHANCELLOR FORMALLY CELEBRATED HIS BIRTHDAY. FAMILY MEMBERS JOINED THE DISTINGUISHED GATHERING, AMONG THEM SOME OF DR. ADENAUER'S 23 GRAND-CHILDREN AND GREAT GRAND-CHILDREN.

    WHEN DR. ADENAUER RETIRED AS CHANCELLOR HE RETAINED THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATIC PARTY, AND IN RECENT MONTHS THERE HAD BEEN A RIFT WITHIN THE PARTY ON THE POLICY TOWARDS GENERAL DE GAULLE.

    RECENTLY THE PARTY PATCHED UP ITS DIFFERENCES AND TODAY CHANCELLOR ERHARD SAID DR. ADENAUER'S ADVICE WAS NEEDED IN THE FATEFUL AND DIFFICULT TASKS IN BOTH HOME AND FOREIGN POLICY.

    DR. ADENAUER CONTINUES TO BE ACTIVE IN PILOTING AND HAS ALREADY ANNOUNCED PLANS TO RUN FOR PARLIAMENT AGAIN THIS AUTUMN.
