wall As President Kennedys per sonal envoy to West Berlin Clay told a private meeting of pub lishers and reporters last week that US officials are informing West German it must face up to the existence of Communist East Germany and let the East rermans have some authority over access to Berlin West Berliners generally in terpreted Clays offtherecord remarks as removing all hope or the reunification of Germany in the foreseeable future Mayor Willy Brandt of West 3erlin commented bitterly We lave lost1 some hopes but also some illusions By illusions the mayor meant the ability of many West Berlin ers to convince themselves that he concrete curtain thrown across the divided city by the ommunists Aug 13 was merely a temporary inconvenience British newspapers predicted a dramatic switch in US policy toward Germany is shap ng up despite the denials by iay and Washington The Daily Mail described lays offtherecord remarks as a calculated indiscretion The apers Washington correspond nt Bruce Rothwell reported resident Kennedy is about T begin this commentary with a few excerpts out of reports brought back to the free by some qualified observers who have been behind that new ly constructed wall sealing off East Berlin from West Berlin 1 Nobody can stay here even a few hours and escape the feel ing of evidence of the Communists failure that they are trying to hide behind their wall 2 A fourday trip behind the Iron Curtain in East Germany can be an education in fear I saw fear in the eyes of the young and old Communists and nonCommunists workers and businessmen shopkeepers and intellectuals And I saw armed policemen back away nervously from menacing crowds 3 new campaign of terror is under way all across the coun try Everywhere blueshirted boys and young men

Wol lankstrasse I felt an uneasy strange silence There were no smiles or laughter People in twos and threes stood on corj ners looking westward i 5 East Germany now must be considered no less a captive nation than other Soviet satellite countries In the light of all this it re mained for William R Frye United Nations editor for the Christian Science Monitor to come forward with this inter pretation of the phenomena herei covered Much of what Soviet Premier Nikita S Khrushchev has done is a confession of weakness or at least inadequate strength It is not really a display of confi dence at all This Frye added is pre cisely the opposite of the irApres sion Khrushchev has sought to convey He has blustered and threatened and attempted to in timidate the world with a giant multimegaton bomb He has sought to portray himself as a great colossus astride a trem bling globe But this well respected com mentator on world affairs hastens to point out the facts arc very different from the im pression the Kremlin would leave Nothing but the most polling military necessity thej Christian Science staffer con tends could have prompted Khrushchev to undertake a course of action so incredibly damaging to him in a hundred other ways as the resumption of Soviet bomb testing In some detail he explains that from a strictly tactical point of view everything the Kremlin has done lately has been de fensive rather than offensive in character Sealing off East Berlin Frye argued is equivalent to build ing a Chinese wall Its de fensive not offensive Barring the corridors to Berlin would be defensive not offensive Almost from the day hat join Turn to Pagt 2 WARMER North Iowa Generally fair and warmer Monday night and Tuesday Lows Monday night 4347 Highs Tuesday 7075 Iowa Generally fair
