  • Description

    WEST GERMAN FINANCE MINISTER FRANZ-JOSEF STRAUSS OPENED THE WEST BERLIN CITY ELECTION CAMPAIGN YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) WITH A SPEECH TO THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATIC UNION RALLY AT THE DEUTSCHLANDHALLE SPORT-CENTER IN THE CITY.

    HERR STRAUSS SPOKE ABOUT AMERICAN TIES WITH WESTERN GERMANY. HE RECALLED PRESIDENT KENNEDY'S PHRASE WHEN HE VISITED BERLIN IN 1963 "I AM A BERLINER".

    THE MEANING OF THESE WORDS, HE SAID, WAS THAT THE UNITED STATES WAS INVOLVED WITH WESTERN GERMANY -- AND WOULD REMAIN SO UNTIL ALL GERMANS COULD LIVE FREELY TOGETHER.

    THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATIC UNION MEETING WAS THE FIRST OF A NUMBER OF POLITICAL RALLIES TO BE HELD IN THE CITY AS A PRELUDE TO THE ELECTIONS.
