RED CAMPAIGN THREATENS Berliners Hail Holiday but Fears Haunt Them By REINHOLD ENS BERLIN (AP) -The 2,200,000 West Berliners today fervently tailed the coming of Chrlstm'as, hoping it would not be their last one in freedom. Haunted by the new Soviet campaign against their isolated city, many were putting extra touches of gaiety into their celebrations. Thousands of other Germans— from the historic Rhine in the West to the disputed Oder in the East — streamed into the city for a special reunion with loved ones. This year, East Germany's Communist regime has made it much harder to get in and out of East Germany itself, so divided families were using Berlin as a meeting point. ' West Berlin city officials estimated that about 80,000 West Germans were already in their part of the city or were en route. The three Western airlines that fly the 110-mile route from West Germany put on extra flights. Special trains and < extra buses were running. Bishop Otto Dibelius, titular head of Germany's big Evangelical (Lutheran) Church, sharply attacked the Eastern government in a special Christmas statement. Dibelius said his Christmas wish for 1959 is:"'That the system of force under which the Eastern part of Germany suffers will fall away at last and that the West Berlin Mayor Willy Brand* in his Christmas statement Hid his city knows "the new year witi bring many a test for us." But he added he is convinced thai "the courage and attitude of thft Berliners will remain the same during the new year." In East Berlin, Communist Dep. uty Mayor Waldemar Schmidt issued a statement which fell ofl unconvinced ears in West Berlin. Said Schmidt: "What a happy Christmas holiday West Berlinera would have constructive before them if suggestions of the the Soviet Union were accepted." people who live there will once again be given the elementary human right to have freedom and self-determination."
