    MR KHRUSHCHEV CALLED IN EAST BERLIN YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS CONCLUSION OF EAST-WEST AGREEMENTS ON A PARTIAL NUCLEAR TEST BAN AND NON-AGGRESSION TREATY BETWEEN THE WARSAW PACT AND NATO COUNTRIES.

    AN INVITED AUDIENCE OF 6,000 "WORKERS, PEASANTS AND INTELLECTUALS" AND LEADERS OF EAST GERMANY'S COMMUNIST PARTY AND GOVERNMENT CHEERED HIM TO THE ECHO ON HIS APPEARANCE ON THE CONGRESS HALL ROSTRUM WITH HERR WALTER ULBRICHT, THE EAST GERMAN LEADER.

    THE SOVIET PRIME MINISTER CLAIMED A COMPLETE NUCLEAR TEST BAN WAS AT PRESENT IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE OF THE WESTERN ATTITUDE.HE SAID THE WESTERN DEMAND FOR INSPECTIONS, PARTICULARLY AERIAL INSPECTION - WHICH HE DESCRIBED AS "LEGALISED ESPIONAGE" - WAS UNACCEPTABLE TO RUSSIA ON SECURITY GROUNDS.

    MR.KHRUSHCHEV SAID THAT MUCH WAS SPOKEN OF THE SO-CALLED WEST GERMAN ECONOMIC MIRACLE."IF WE TALK ABOUT ECONOMIC MIRACLE, THEN THE ECONOMIC MIRACLE WAS HERE, IN THE GERMAN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC, " HE SAID."ONLY SOCIALISM CAN ACHIEVE REAL MIRACLES.THE GERMAN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC WILL OUTPACE WEST GERMANY AND THIS TIME HAS ALREADY BEGUN."
    SPEAKING AFTER MR.KHRUSHCHEV, HERR ULBRICHT SAID THE SOVIET PRIME MINISTER'S SPEECH HAD "PUT THE IMPUDENT AND PRESUMPTUOUS POLICY OF THE WEST GERMAN AND WEST BERLIN REVENGE SEEKERS AND MILITARISTS INTO ITS PROPER PLACE."
    HERR ULBRICHT AGAIN DEMANDED A "PEACEFUL, FREE AND NEUTRAL CITY OF WEST BERLIN,"THE RECOGNITION OF THE EAST GERMAN STATE AND THE ADMISSION OF EAST GERMANY, WEST GERMANY AND WEST BERLIN INTO THE UNITED NATIONS.HE ALSO PUT FORWARD AGAIN THE IDEA OF A CONFEDERATION BETWEEN EAST AND WEST GERMANY FOR WHICH PREPARATORY STEPS COULD ALREADY BE TAKEN.

    IT WAS THE FIFTH DAY OF MR.KHRUSHCHEV VISIT TO THE GERMAN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC.
