Airplanes and the telegraph are the only means of com- munication. Government circles see in the strike a new Spartacan attempt against the government. The reason given for the strike is a demand for an increase in Wages. In the meantime, the German gov- ernment and the various political lead- ers arc held here until further notice. A majority of these do not have suf- ficient clothes and fresh linen to last more than a day or two.
