    RUSSIA'S VALENTINA TERESHKOVA-NIKOLAEVA, THE WORLD'S FIRST WOMAN ASTRONAUT, WAS GREETED BY THE CHAIRMAN OF WEST BERLIN'S SOCIALIST UNITY PARTY, HERR GERHARD DANELIUS, AS SHE ARRIVED YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) AS THE GUEST OF THE WEST BERLIN ASSOCIATION FOR GERMAN-SOVIET FRIENDSHIP. THE SURPRISE VISIT CAME ONLY THREE DAYS BEFORE THE THREE UNITED STATES APOLLO II "LUNARNAUTS" WERE DUE IN THE CITY.

    THE 32-YEAR-OLD FORMER TEXTILE WORKER MADE HISTORY IN JUNE 1963 WHEN SHE BECAME THE FIRST WOMAN TO GO INTO SPACE. SHE MADE 48 ORBITAL FLIGHTS OF THE EARTH IN THE USSR SPACESHIP VOSTOK VI. SHE IS NOW MARRIED TO COSMONAUT COLONEL ANDRIYAN NIKOLAYEV.

    THE FORUM ORGANISED IN WEST BERLIN, WAS HELD IN A RESTAURANT IN THE BRITISH SECTOR. AFTER BEING FORMALLY INTRODUCED, TERESHKOVA ANSWERED QUESTIONS FROM THE AUDIENCE - BUT AVOIDED GIVING ANY VERY DEFINITE ANSWERS ON CRUCIAL SUBJECTS.
