GERMANC IANCELLOR:
Adenauer Leads Crusade Against Reds

* : *

BONN, Germany --(A)- Konrad
Adenauer, the elderly, stern
chancellor of the West German re-
public, is one of the leaders Hof the
European crusade against Com-
munism.
As leader of a new nation of 48,-
000,000 his pentrating voice has of-
ten been raised to condemn the
Russian tactics that have set Ger-
man against German and split his
country.
* * *
HE CLAIMS, with Western Al-
lied backing, that his government
is the only one that legally repre-
sents all Germans. Wlien he speaks
to the world he speaks also for the
18,000,000 Germans under Soviet
rule.
Adenauer governs West Ger-
many under the banners of
Christianity and economic free
enterprise.,
Through Christian ethics he
hopes to wash away the taint of
Nazism and extreme German na-
tionalism. Through free enterprise
he hopes to make the federal re-

KONRAD ADENAUER
public solvent and independent of
foreign financial aid.
His goal is the merging of a re-
uni.ted Germany into a Europeanl
federation. The first step in this
aim would be the achievement of
what he calls his life-long ambi-
tion-the ending of the 'ancient
f e u d between Germany a n d
France. After World War I he was!
associated with the separatists who
wanted to link the Rhineland with
France.
Adenauer has a strangely ex-
pressionless face, almost oriental
in cast. This was due to an au-
tomobile accident in which he
was badly injured in 1933. Plastic
surgery restored his face but left
it in an unsmiling mask.
This has been an asset to him
in debate. His tenacity and poker
face made him a skilled negotiator.
Allied officials, in grudging tribute,
call him "the old fox."
Though he does not stand on
ceremony, some of his countrymen
find the irascible Adenauer diffi-
cult to get along with. Neverthe-
less he has a very loyal and hard-
working personal staff.

practically the only choice as
chancellor.
At first some doubted the el-
derly unknown's ability to weld
the quarrelsome politicians of
the "ersatz" state into a stable
government. -Since then the sta-
ture of Adanauer has increas-
ed manyf old.
His advocacy of economic and
political union with France, his
passionate support of the Schuman
,Plan, his successful fight to send a
German delegation to Strasbourg,
have made him an international
figure to be reckoned with.
Adenauer is credited with some
of the responsibility for persuad-
ing the Western Allies to change
their defense line from the Rhine
to the border of the Soviet zone.
IN A radio speech he summed
up:
"We Germans love peace above
all. But we also know what slavery
means and we know that freedom
is the greatest gift. We Germans
-and I say this also for the. Ger-
mans on the other side of the Iron
Curtain-are with full heart and
full conviction in the camp of free-
dom."
Adenauer seems to care little
for others' opinions so long as he
presses on to his objective. There
have been rows in the cabinet
over his habit of presenting his
ministers w i t h accomplished
facts instead of consulting them
before making major policy deci-
sions.
While he is a supporter of demo-
cratic parliamentary government,
he is sometimes impatient of inter-
party disputes which he tries to I
brush aside in favor of direct, ad-
I ministrative action. The opposition
have seized on this on occa-
sions, claiming he ignores the
wishes of the legislature.

Catholic faith and his belief in

Aer ne aormive attempt on
Hitler's life on July 20, 1944 Ade-
nauer and his wife were arrested
by the Gestapo.
For eight weeks he was brutally
questioned. His wife attempted su-
icide. Eventually the Adenauers
were released, but a strict watch
by the Gestapo was maintained.
When the Americans captured
Cologne they appointed Adenau-
er mayor again.
The city later became part of
the British Occupation Zone. Ade-
nauer was sacked by the British for
allegedly being uncooperative. He
is reputed never to have forgiven
the British for this incident.
Twice married, twice a widower,
Adenauer has seven children. His
hobbies are gardening and who-
dunits. A true Rhinelander, he
likes an occasional glass of Rhine
wine.
T h e non-smoking chancellor
takes a bag of sweets to confer-
ences. When the last sweet has
been popped into his mouth the
conference is over.
