    Original caption: President Kennedy in Germany Berlin, June 26 - In a tumultuous demonstration of friendship and tribute, more than a million West Berliners today gave President Kennedy the greatest greeting of his life. The President flew here for an 8-hour visit before the Ireland leg of his four-nation, 10-day European tour. Arriving from Wiesbaden, President Kennedy took part in ceremonies at Tegel Airport, addressed a trade union congress, saw the Communist built wall at Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie, and spoke to 250,000 wildly cheering Berliners in the city hall square. Later he gave an address at the Free University of Berlin. Construction workers use their crane to get a bird's eye view of the President as he passes through West Berlin. H-43038. less
