Yesterday, after a protest march by 5,000 workers, the East Ger mans revoked the increased pro duction quotas. Adenauer and Western occupa- lion officials have viewed the new Communist decommunization tac tics as designed to make the "reunified" Germany the Reds have 3een offering appear more attrac- ;ive to the West Germans than .he Chancellor's program to align his territory militarily with the West.
