Background: Over 800 newsmen are using the press facilities of the U.N. at its headquarters in Geneva, the Palais des Nations, to keep the world informed on the moves of the Big four and the Little Two - East and West Germany.
The press secretariat are geared to the daily routine of supplying information, gossip, pictures on the U.N. specialized agencies in this international meeting place on neutral soil but not since the mid-1955 summit meeting has the corps of reporters columnists, photographers and television cameramen seen so numerous.
The press department is a labrynth of offices: rooms for cabling, typewriters, teleprinters for sending pictures by wire, broadcasting, television.
The Big Four have their own press conference rooms with the delegations' information officers on hand to meet the news gatherers when the Foreign Ministers are not giving press conferences.
But the East and West Germans have to use the same room for theirs. Since they are not on speaking terms, a partition is hitched across it - an eloquently silent symbol of the ideological differences between the corps of Adenauer and Grotewohl.
