    Background: A STREET NAMED ASTER THE LATE WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR, KONRAD ADENAUER, WAS TODAY (MONDAY) RENAMED THE ???, THE NAME IT HAD HELD FOR SIXTY YEARS.

    STREET SIGNS SAYING 'ADENAUERDAMM' WERE REMOVED EARLY THIS MORNING, LESS THAN NINE MONTHS AFTER THEY WERE ERECTED ALONG THE TEN-LANE HIGHWAY INTO WEST BERLIN.

    THE RENAMING OF THE STREET WAS THE RESULT OF STRONG OPPOSITION FROM WEST BERLINERS WHO COLLECTED A PETITION CONTAINING MORE THAN 140-THOUSAND SIGNATURES. DOCTOR ADENAUER WAS NEVER A POPULAR FIGURE IN THE AREA OF WEST BERLIN WHERE THE STREET WAS NAMED AFTER HIM.

    THERE WAS ONLY A MINOR DEMONSTRATION AGAINST THE RENAMING, LED BY MEMBERS OF THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT PARTY, OF WHICH THE LATE DOCTOR ADENAUER WAS LEADER.
