    Background: WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR DR. ADENAUER FLEW INTO WEST BERLIN AUGUST 22 ON A ONE-DAY "SEE-FOR-MYSELF" TOUR OF THE TROUBLED CITY. HE WAS WELCOMED AT TEMPLE OF AIRPORT BY BERLIN'S MAYOR, WILLI BRANDT, HIS CHIEF RIVAL FOR CHANCELLORSHIP IN NEXT MONTH'S ELECTION.

    IN A SPEECH ON ARRIVAL, DR. ADENAUER SAID WEST GERMANY WOULD NOT FORGET ITS OBLIGATIONS TO THE EAST GERMANS. THE DAY OF RE-UNIFICATION AND FREEDOM WOULD COME. "WE MUST KEEP A WARM HEART AND A COOL HEAD," HE ADDED.

    THEN CAME A TOUR OF THE CITY. CROWDS LINED THE TOUR ROUTE, BUT THERE WAS NOTHING LIKE THE ENTHUSIASTIC WELCOME SHOWERED ON U.S. VICE-PRESIDENT LYNDON JOHNSON TWO DAYS EARLIER.

    DR. AGENAUER'S VISIT INCLUDED A CALL AT THE MARIENFIELDE REFUGEE CAMP. THEN THE 85-YEAR-OLD CHANCELLOR WENT TO THE SECTOR BOUNDARY TO SEE THE CONCRETE WALL ERECTED BY THE EAST GERMANS BY THE BRANDENBURG GATE.
