ABSTRACT
Focuses on a plan proposed by the journal "Manchester Guardian," to solve the problem of territorial claims by East and West Germany over West Berlin. Assumptions under the plan that Germany will remain divided into a Federal and an East German Republic for the future, with communist pressure on West Berlin, and that the geographical isolation of West Berlin would remain a source of political and diplomatic weakness to the Western Alliance; Steps taken for the integration of East German Republic in the Communist bloc, by the creation of a Council of State, and the self-appointment of Walter Ulbricht to be its first chairman; Suggestion that West Berliners should be given the right to move with their city, with bigger role to play in German affairs than can be exercised by them at present.
