    Background: EAST AND WEST GERMANY ARE TO HAVE SEPARATE TEAMS AT FUTURE OLYMPIC GAMES.INSTEAD OF ONE JOINT TEAM AS IN THE EAST.THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC CONGRESS, MEETING IN MADRID TODAY (FRIDAY), RARE EAST GERMANY FULL OLYMPIC RECOGNITION, BUT STIPULATED THAT BOTH TEAMS SHOULD COMPETE UNDER THE SAID FLAG.

    GENERAL FRANCO ATTENDED THE INAUGURAL CEREMONY.HE WAS ACCOMPANIED BY PRINCE JUAN CARLOS OF BAURBON, - SON OF DON JUAN, THE CLAIMANT TO THE SPANISH THRONE, AND HIS WIFE PRINCESS SOPHIA OF GREECE, AMONG THOSE PRESENT AT THE CEREMONY WAS KING CONSTANTINE AND QUEEN ANNE-MARIE OF GREECE.

    AT CEREMONY OF STATE FORMALITY AND COURTESY......

    BUT IN THE POLITICAL ARENA, THE ATMOSPHERE IS LESS CEREMONIOUS.

    A WEST GERMAN GOVERNMENT SPOKESMAN SAID THE MOVE OF FULL OLYMPIC RECOGNITION FOR EAST GERMANY WAS REGRETTABLE.

    GERMAN UNITY WOULD NOT BE AS CLEARLY DEMONSTRATED AS IN THE FAST AT SUCH A PROMINENT INTERNATIONAL EVENT.EAST GERMANS HOWEVER HAVE WELCOMED THE DECISION AS A "GREAT VICTORY.
