Berlin Wall Is Reopened BERLIN (UPD — Communist East Germany today opened the Berlin wall for the second time since it was built more than three years ago. West Berliners streamed through to visit relatives in East Berlin. Under a pass agreement reached between the Communists and the West Berlin city government, West Berliners with relatives in the East will be allowed one 17-hour visit between today and Nov. 12. No overnight stays will be permitted and the traffic will be strictly one-way. The Communists fear that most East Berliners would stay.
