"It is still an abnormal monument. Practically every- body living in the west and east sections of the city want to get rid of it but the solution does not rest with Berlin ere, the problem must be solved at a European said the mayor. He visited Ottawa for one day where he presided at the lor- mol opening of German week in Canada's capital. German Week in Ottawa lias been held regularly since 1968 and has be- come a tradition. Mayor Schuetz spoke on "Berlin-Pivot of Peace." Ho said Berlin is a theatre where renunciation of lorce and the policy of casing tensions which the German Federal govern- ment has initiated by tho treaties of Moscow and Warsaw and its endeavors for a Berlin settlement, is exposed to prac- tical tests and must prove it- self. He said that the exposed posi- tion of Berlin imposes on the population of Berlin and Its leaders more strenuous tests than in the Test of Germany. There was Stalin's Blockade in June, 1953, Khrushchev's war of nerves and the erection of the wall on August 13, 1861. The Berliners have "come through these tests successfully hi the past. By their lalm reso- lution, their sense of fairness and decency, their dry humour and sense of proportion they have proved themselves a wor- thy population of a great met- lie said. "They have contributed to maintaining the said the Mayor. In Ottawa the mayor con- ferred with Secretary of Stale for External Affairs Mitchell Sharp. He said there was a "general" discussion. Ques- tioned as to whetlier's Canada's contribution to trie North Atlan- tic Treaty Organization was raised Mr. Schuetz said he did not bring it up.

Dr. Istvan Meszaros, 42, hir- ed to teach social and politic a] thought at York University, wants to know what evidence there is against him. "I'm determined to hold on here as long as ho said in an interview. "If it takes five years to get through all the appeals, I will Jight that long." He was hired by York Uni- versity July 1 as a senior pro- fessor at an annual salary ol but cannot leach without a visa. The Hungarian-born scholar resigned from the University ol Sussex in England to fake the Canadian position but was in- formed July 14, after 17 weeks wait, that his application was turned down.

Rose's first trial for kidnap ping Mr. Laporte in October 1970, ended May 11 with a hun Jury. The confusion over when tria would proceed arose when de- fence lawyer Robert Lemieus requested that the muide charge be heard first, as th kidnapping case is being ap pealed. Crown Prosecutor Fernan Cote told the court he had cer tain objections to proceeding o the murder charge, includin the fact that the Crown was no1 prepared. "We are prepared to prococ< with the charge of kidnappin but we cannot do so because is under Mr. Cot said.

He was in Saskatoon Sunday. In an interview later, Mr. Caouette said he would not rec- ommend an increase in in- spectors to check into abuses of the unemployment insurance fund. The government has hired 80 now inspectors to check into breaches of law. SEVERITY URGED Mr. Caouette said "we have to be more severe in some cases" but rather Oian order people to pay back what they had taken illegally, they should be jailed. The Social Credit leader has been urging a guaranleed an- nual income as a replacement for unemployment insurance and other welfare plans, so dis- honesty would be eliminated. Mr. Caouette pushed his de- mand for a national television debate of the leaders of the four major political parties and drew a favorable response from several callers on the open-line program. One caller said Mr. CaoueUc's program on eco- nomic security sounds like a "Robin Hood policy of taking from the rich and giving to the poor." Mr. Oaouette replied: "I'm not in favor of taking from the haves and giving to the have- nots and no-haves."

Lessard admitted his remarks were "only" his personal opinion.
