Reunited Germany celebrates its 5th birthday
BONN, Germany (AP) - Leftists
protested and skirmished with police
yesterday in Duesseldorf, as reunited
Germany observed its fifth birthday by
toasting its achievements and lament-
ing the many ways the country remains
Speeches at Unity Day observances
and a television address by Chancellor
Helmut Kohl made it clear: West Ger-
many and communist East Germany
drifted so far apart during four decades
of forced separation that they won't be
truly united for years to come.
"It is true that not all wishes have
been fulfilled in the past five years,"
said Kohl, who as the West German
chancellor steered the two Germanys to
unification on Oct. 3, 1990.
Security officials had feared leftist
extremists would try to disrupt the
government's main Unity Day celebra-
tion in the central German city of
Duesseldorf, and they were right.
Before dawn, leftist militants torched
a car, hurled stones at police and
smashed the windows of a Duesseldorf
bank and department store. Police ar-
rested six youths and confiscated vari-
About 3,000 protesters, many ofthem
masked, marched through the city
flanked by riot police. They carried
banners reading "Five Years of Unity
- There's Nothing To Celebrate."
Unity Day celebrations are hosted
every Oct. 3 by whichever of Germany's
16 states holds the presidency in the
upper house ofparliament. North Rhine-
Westphalia, where Duesseldorf is capi-
tal, has that role this year.
Inside a Duesseldorf concert hall,
Kohl, President Roman Herzog and
other guests heard speeches and music,
including a Mozart piece sung by Ameri-
can opera singer Barbara Hendricks.
Surrounding the concert hall were
some of the 3,000 police officers de-
ployed in Duesseldorf for Unity Day.
Johannes Rau, North Rhine-
Westphalia state governor, said that
since reunification, "the inner divisions
have disappeared, but reservations and
prejudices have made some invisible
gaps wider and deeper than before."
"Much remains to be done, above all in
the heads and hearts of Germans," he said.
Reunited Germany has Europe's stron-
gest economy and is assuming a growing
role in international affairs. Once-grim
communities in the formerly communist
region are starting to look like the bus-
tling cities and towns of the west.
Nevertheless, many westerners are
bitter that costs have gone up to pay for
unity and many easterners see their
lives as being dominated by the more
Unemployment in eastern Germany,
remains at a stubborn 14 percent, and
the region relies on federal government
infusions of more than $100 billion
annually because it can't yet support
itself with its own production.
Manfred Stolpe, governor of eastern
Germany's Brandenburg state, said he
gets the impression that westerners fre-
quently overlook the abilities and knowl-
edge of easterners just because their lives
were once dictated by communists.
Pope's visit begins today in New York
NEW YORK- A healthier Pope John Paul II returns to the
United States today with popularity ratings any politician
would covet. A New York Times-CBS News poll released
over the weekend found 92 percent of U.S. Catholic adults
view him favorably and only 4 percent unfavorably.
During his five-day visit, the pope will confer with
President Clinton, address the United Nations General
Assembly and preach to huge crowds at the outdoor Masses
in Giants Stadium in the New Jersey Meadowlands, at
Aqueduct race track, on the Great Lawn in New York's
Central Park and at Oriole Park in Baltimore.
Placido Domingo, Natalie Cole and Roberta Flack will Pope John Paul 11
warm up some of his audiences, while free tickets to his outdoor events are being
scalped at prices upwards of $100.
In addressing the United Nations tomorrow, John Paul II will have a far greater
presence than when he faced the world body at the outset of his papacy in 1979.
Away from the seats of power and the crowded bleacher seats, the pope will have
a casserole lunch with the homeless at a soup kitchen in Baltimore just down the
block from the nation's oldest Catholic cathedral.

PENSACOLA, Fla. - Hurricane
Opal, the season's ninth, headed to-
ward the northeastern Gulf of Mexico
late yesterday afternoon.
A hurricane watch extended from
Morgan City, La., eastward across the
Florida Panhandle to the mouth of the
Suwannee River on Florida's north-
west Gulf Coast.
Forecasters believed Opal's most
likely path would bring it southeast of
Louisiana this afternoon and then onto
the Florida Panhandle at about mid-
night. From there, the storm would prob-
ably continue northeast into Alabama
and Georgia, said Max Mayfield of the
National Hurricane Center in Miami.
Forecasters believed the highest prob-
ability was that Opal would make land-
fall in Pensacola.

President Kiro Gligorov was seriously
