Sir Winston Say Konrad 'Wisest Man' By PHIL NEWSOM . UP! Foreign News Analyst "Adenauer may well be deemed the wisest German statesman since Bismarck." It was a compliment from one great man to another. For the man who made the remark was Sir Winston Churchill, he who led Great Britain through the perilous World War II years to final victory over Adolf Hitler. And the man of whom he was speaking was Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, who rebuilt a war-wrecked Germany into one of the world's greatest financial and political powers, and which today provides the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) with every second soldier available for defense of the West. This is the day that Adenauer's resignation from 14 years of rule becomes effective. Wednesday, L u d w i g (Uncle Ludy) Erhard becomes the new chancellor of the West German republic. It has been described as the end of an era, an ending that came sooner than Adenauer himself wished, not as soon as Erhard and others in Adenauer's increasingly rebellious Christian Democratic party have wished. Reach Unexpected Peaks Churchill's comparison of Adenauer to Bismarck was not just a complimentary phrase. For Adenauer, like Bismarck, had been called upon to lead a fledgling German state and both had led it to wholly unexpected peaks of power and influence. Adenauer overcame doubts that the German people had rejected their Nazi past and won for them acceptance in the Western family of nations. Adenauer fought for a united Germany integrated with a united Europe. He tied West Germany's fate with the United States and his constant goal was the elimination of the old enmity between Germany and France. Not all these goals were accomplished, and in later years he became increasingly suspicious that accord between the United States and the Soviet Union might be reached at the expense of a permanently divided Germany. Signs French Accord This and his continuing de sire for close ties with France led him last January to sign his accord with President Charles de Gaulle which he described as a crowning moment of his life. But within his own party there was criticism that he had become subservient to De Gaulle and that for French - German accord he had sacrificed some of his own earlier goals, includ ing a united Europe and his close ties with the United States. It hardened the determination that it was time for Adenauer to quit. Part of Adenauer's reluc tance to shed his robes of office arose from his doubts about the abilities of the man named to succeed him. Adenauer, whose own interest in economics is minor, recognized the Erhard genius which had made the Germany of today the world's third largest trading nation, the second largest industrial producer and the possessor of the largest currency reserves in Europe. But an economict, he believed, did not make a politician and in many sarcastic references he questioned that Erhard had the strength of character to stand against the pressures which fall upon the chancellor. Actually, under Erhard, there probably will be a few changes in Germany policy. But he opposes De Gaulle's concept of a Europe which would bar Britain. And this may provide one of his early tests.
