The -s o. BERLIN (AP) Border guards fought a fierce tear gas battle to- day as massed West Berliners screamed their hatred of the red on its first anniversary. The battle erupted in the Wil- helmstrasse, opposite the former Nazi air ministry. It is now the seat of several East German gov- ernment ministries. East German police shot a of water from a water cannon at West Berlin youths car- rying a wooden cross along the wall. Enraged West Berliners then hurled stones at the water can- non. Eastern guards then tossed tear gas grenades into the thick- ly massed crowd. West police immediately threw about 150 tear gas grenades over the wall.- They fell all around two water cannon, which were en- veloped in a thick cloud of gas and withdrew about 30 yards. The choking crews had to get out for fresh air. Western police were soaking wet, as were the .youths carrying the cross. The Communist guards ap- peared particularly enraged by the sight of the wooden cross, be- ing carried by West Berlin youths. The cross was'draped in black mourning ribbon and followed by between 500 and 700 youngsters walking slowly along the wall chanting such slogans as "Out with Ulbricht" meaning East German Communist chief Walter Ulbricht. This demonstration touched off the tear gas -battle. Rio1: police eventually cleared the Wilhelmstrasse area. German motorists who traveled the Hamburg-Berlin highway re- ported big movements, of East German troops. They said tanks, armored cars and armored per- sonnel carriers were headed from Nauen, about 20 miles west of Berlin, toward the British sector border at Staaken. A company of 100 West riot po- lice was rushed to the scene. There were .about 80 Eastern po- on the other side of the wall. East Berliners tried to join in the demonstration. But Commu- nist police kept 'them back. About 100 persons were seen being pushed back in the Unter den Linden and Wilhelmstrasse, "in East Berlin. Windows in buildings on the east side of the border were flung open as persons inside listened to the Western outcries of anger but Communist officials quickly shut the windows. The din along the wall was tre- mendous. The Communists brought up loudspeakers blaring martial mu- sic in an attempt.to drown out the shouts from the West. Western police said they heard the rumble of tanks in East Berlin and saw truckloads of steel-hel- meted troops being deployed on streets leading to the wall. The Western reinforcements were ordered up after thousands of booing, shouting' persons massed along the wall. At least West Berliners were at various points on the wall, witnesses estimated. Traffic and work had halted for three minutes-in .West Berlin to mark the anniversary. .What was planned by authori- ties as a quiet observance of the anniversary erupted into a noisy demonstration. At -the Friedrich- strasse, West Berlin motorists blew their horns for 50 minutes. People streamed to the wall. They shook their fists, shouted in chorus and waved to any East Berliners they could see. They booed some Soviet soldiers in a Red army car caught in the stalled traffic. The crowd hurled insults at four Soviet staff cars driving to Fried- richstrasse to cross into East Ber- lin. The cars were spat on. Men shouted "pigs" and unprintable expressions at the Russians. In a broadcast carried by all radio stations. Mayor Willy Brandt said: "In this minute we all remember the bitter injustice which has been done.our city. We think about our relatives and friends, about our countrymen, who by brutal force are separated (Continued on Two) Without The Wall, Khrushchev Has No Crisis Over Berlin By WILLIAM L.RYAN AP Special Correspondent When Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, the people shouted, the trumpets blared and the wall came tumbling modern battle of the wall, a year old today, is entering a new and sinister phase, with no modern Joshua in sight. The barrier cutting Berlin in half looks more permanent than ever. When the wall went up, the Communists gambled that they could get away with it. Now, a year later, the Krem- lin may consider the opportunity at hand for the next ---------gamble for big stakes in Germany. The wall was costly in terms of propaganda. Around the non Communist world it was de- nounced as a monstrosity, a de- vice designed to imprison people and turn East Germany into f concentration camp. Why, then Rusk Reports No Progress With Russian WASHINGTON of State Dean Rusk and Soviet Ambassador Anatoly F. Dobrynin conferred for 23 minutes today on the Berlin situation. The conference, initiated by the Russian, produced no significant change in the situation, the State Department reported. Rusk and the ambassador had further comments on the Berlin question and the discussions the secretary held with Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko in Geneva recently, a State Depart- ment communique said. Rusk, the State Department said, called Dobrynin's attention to the Western proposal of June 25 for a. four-power meeting on means of easing tensions in Ber- lin. The Russians .have rejected the proposal. The State Department gave no explanation why Dobrynin asked for the meeting on the first anni- versary of the Berlin wall. The ambassador made the request Sunday. The communique did not ex- plain why the meeting was so un- usually short On previous occa- sions when Dobrynin has met with Rusk, their conversations have lasted from an hour to an hour and a half. They declined to go beyond the words of the communique. State Department press officer James Bishop added that Rusk expects to meet Dobrynin again but no date was set. Bishop also said that no papers changed hands, meaning that the Russian brought no written mes- sage or a note. He declined to say Dobrynin made new pro- posals on how to break the Berlin THE ADA EVENING deadlock. Similarly, Dobrynin himself, when leaving the department, had told newsmen that no notes were exchanged at the meeting, but had declined to answer a question as to whether any new proposals were submitted. was it built? West Berlin was to the Commu- nists, as Premier Khrushchev put it, "a bone which sticks in the throat." Walter Ulbricht, Red leader of East Germany, claimed it had cost his regime, in 1961 alone, 40 per cent of what would have been its national income be- cause of the steady drain of young skilled labor, specialists and intel- lecuals who fled West, The wall was a galling demonstration of Communist failure. For years Berlin was the escape route fo hundreds of thousands. Hundreds of refugees fled west- ward every day. In 1961 alone, before the wall went up, East Germans escaped to West Germany. Ulbricht at one time hoped to buy million worth of goods on credit from West Germany. Any such deal seems unlikely while the wall remains. But Ul- bricht's problems, terrifying as they are, seem not big enough to persuade him to knock the wall down again in hopes of finding a way out of economic chaos. The wall has to remain, an instrument of Soviet policy. Its appearance has increased tensions and apparently that was one of its purposes, Without tension, there had been little Western inclination to nego- tiate on Berlin. With the wall, there was a chance of using fear as a weapon to divide the Allies or force both. Recently President Kennedy told the Soviet ambassador in Washington that the presence of Allied troops in West Berlin was not negotiable. The Russians in- sist there is only one stumbling block to accord in Berlin: the presence of Allied troops. There is the impasse. Suppose now tension is whipped up again, creating new hot war jitters. Suppose Khrushchev then provides the Allies with a loop- hole by creating some reason to Continued on Two ADA, OKLAHOMA, MONDAY, AUGUST 10 PAGES 5 CENTS WEEKDAY, 10 CENTS SUNDAY WILLARD School li adding two cliiiroomt wing to iti facilities'fhri iuiinmir: The modernization and expansion project scheduled for completion Aug. 15.

Kennedy was likely to call at- tention in his 7 p.m. EDT tele- vision-radio address to his stalled requests for stand-by authority to cut taxes and launch a public works program in the event of a recession. If Congress should ap- prove these proposals, the door would be kept open for a possible tax cut later this year.
