    TRANSCRIPT: HERR HAUSSLEITERS: "LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,



    IN THESE 15 YEARS OF WHICH THE ALLGEMEINE FRANKFURTER ZEITUNG SAYS WE HAVE LIVED IN A FOLL'S PARADISE -- IN THESE 15 YEARS ONE HAS INCESSANTLY REPEATED TO US ONLY ONE WORD: PROSPERITY! THE CDU POSTERS PROCLAIMED "PROSPERITY FOR EVERYONE". WILLY BRANDT, YOUR GOVERNING MAYOR, CHAIRMAN OF THE SPD, DURING THE BUNDESTAG ELECTIONS IN 1957 ONCE USED THIS STRANGE PHRASE: WHEN WE, THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS, COME TO POWER WE SHALL GIVE THE GERMAN PEOPLE A TWOFOLD STANDARD OF LIVING. I SAID THEN, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE GERMAN PEOPLE DO NOT WANT A TWOFOLD STANDARD OF LIVING; THEY WANT TO SEE THE TWOFOLD GERMANY MADE INTO A SINGLE GERMANY AGAIN".

    THE AUD'S PROGRAMME INCLUDES A SIX-STAGE PLAN FOR THE RE-ESTABLISHMENT OF GERMAN UNITY. POINTS IN THIS CALL FOR BERLIN TO BE REUNITED AND FOR FOREIGN TROOPS TO WITHDRAW FROM GERMANY.
