A SURPRISE GUEST WAS DOCTOR ULRICH SAHM, A LEADING WEST GERMAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL WHO HEADED TALKS BETWEEN HIS COUNTRY AND EAST GERMANY YESTERDAY.

    THE RECEPTION WAS HELD AT THE WEST GERMAN EMBASSY IN LONDON. MR. BRANDT ARRIVED IN LONDON YESTERDAY FOR TALKS WITH THE GOVERNMENT. IT'S HIS FIRST VISIT SINCE TAKING OFFICE. MAIN REASONS FOR THE TOUR ARE THE COMMON MARKET AND EAST-WEST RELATIONS.

    IN A SPEECH TO A JOINT MEETING OF BRITAIN'S HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT THE WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR APPEALED FOR A NEW ERA OF INTERNATIONAL CO-OPERATION IN THE 1970'S. MR. BRANDT PLEDGED THAT HIS COUNTRY WOULD DO NOTHING TO JEOPARDISE THE CONFIDENCE OF ITS ALLIES.
