Germany <AP'- A Greek fisherman, a T u r k i s h carpenter, a Spanish farm laborer and an lialian bricklayer raised glasses of cold German beer. "Let's drink a toast," said the Italian. "Lot's hope there will be work here in Germany for a long lime." It was 6 p.m. in a Frankfurt bar. It could have been in any of a dozen cities in West Germany as thousands of foreign workers poured out of factories, mills and building sites. They are West Germany's pastar bfiter (guest workers*, imported to make up shortages of labor in this booming land. There are over 650.000 foreign workers in West Germany. Most come from poor, workless towns and villages in southern Europe and the Balkans. For them the streets of West Germany, with its prosperity and high wages, are paved with gold. 'We have money in our pockets and get on well with the girls," 'said Georgios Lattis, 24, who , comes from 8 Greek village near Salonika. He sends money home to his family, and is saving to buy a motor scooter. For some of the older workers, the picture is not so rosy. They still have docp roots in their own countries. Homesickness is common. They are also less able to adapt themselves to Germany's northern climate. Thoughts of their sun- drenched homelands make their longing to return even stronger. '• Even so, most are prepared to stick it out for a year, until they have saved up a small capital, or the economic situation in their i own countries has improved. The German government has : agreements with Italy, Spain, Greece and Turkey for quotas of , labor to meet the specific re- ; quirements of individual companies. The workers are guaranteed a minimum term of employment. Runs Over Younger Brother With Tractor HUNTINGDON.
