    Background: With Berlin once again the pivotal point of East-West cold-warmanship, the Visnews camera takes a look at Berlin food stocks in an attempt to forecast what would happen if.....

    The verdict of the Berlin storekeepers: We have stocks for six months.

    The warehouses are well stocked with corn, cement, paper, fuel, preserved meats, sugar and tobacco.

    Recent incidents in the cold war were a call by Khruschev for the end of the four-power division of Berlin flatly rejected by the U.S. - and the Soviet hold-up of an American convoy for eight hours on November 14, at Babelsberg, outside Berlin, in East German territory. A similar incident started the Berlin blockade ten years ago.
