lowans neighbors MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY AUGUST 10 W2 10c Paper Consist of Four SectionsSection No 1J4 102nd year for the North Iowa F M Berlin wall sign of defeat By RICHARD SPONG Globe Gazette Editorial Research Reporter The wall dividing East and Wes Berlin was erected just one yeai ago this coming Monday on Aug 13 1961 This is an anniversary which neither East West likes to observe To the West the wall in Berlin is a symbol of a missec opportunity of a failure to act in crisis To the East the wall is an admission of weakness No where else in the world is there such visible evidence of the fail ure of communism For both reasons the West Ber liners call it the schandmauer the shamewall It began with a barbed wire fence which East Berlin troops police and factory militia began erecting at 3 am on Aug 13 1961 The border between East and West Berlin was closed to East Berliners The mass exodus of East German refugees was virtually stopped More than 16 000 of these had registered at West Berlin centers in the preced ing fortnight An East German decree issued later on the same day said East Germans would require special new permits to enter West Germans West Berliners foreigners and Allied military personnel could cross the border as usual The decree was to re rnain in force until the conclu sion of a German peace treaty East German workmen began building a fourfoot wall of con crete blocks two days later On Aug 22 transit for foreigners including froops was limited to the Friedricbstrasse crossing point West Germans now had to buy a special pass Then on Oct 26 American troops and tanks drew to within a few hundred yards of Soviet troops and tanks at the Branden burg gate in a showdown that lasted several days Gen Lucius D Clay President Kennedys per sonal representative Mn Berlin subsequently disclosed that the American troop movement wa deliberately designed to bring Soviet confrontation The challenge was perhaps tardy The first American reac tion to the wall was to increase the number of US troops in West Berlin President Kennedy sent Vice President Johnson and later General Clay to reassure the people of West Berlin Questioned at an Oct 11 press conference on whether he would again make the decision not to use force to stop the building of the wall il he had it to doover the Presi dent answered somewhat oblique ly that East Berlin and East Germany have been under the control of the Soviet Union really since 1947 and 1948 Now nearly a year later the Wall of Separation still stands And a million East Berliners re main
