    Background: In West Berlin, Oct 24, a ceremony was held to mark the 10th anniversary of the dedication of the Freedom Bell, installed in the tower of the city hall.

    A special anniversary session of the city Parliament was held, at which US Ambassador in Bonn Walter C. Dowling gave renewed assurances that the USA and the rest of the free world would stand by Berlin.

    Chief Burgomaster Willy Brandt said the Berlin problem could only be solved if Germany was re-united, and its security guaranteed.

    The ringing of the Bell recalled the day 10 years ago - after the Berlin blockade - when it was presented to the city as a gift from America. It is rung daily and on it is the inscription "That this world under God may have a new birth of Freedom".
