Sn Germany Crumbles
RONN, Germany, Feb. 24—W'—
Chancellor Konrad Adenauer’s
three-party government coalition
was crumbling today because of a
split in the Free Democratic party,
his largest ally.
Indications were he would
emerge from the crisis with a
sharply reduced majority in par-
liament. The single bright spot was
the fact the deputies remaining
loyal would give him a more solid
if smaller government front.
The 80-year-old chancellor call-
ed a meeting today of his own
party, the Christian Democrats, to
discuss the developments which
cost him his two-thirds majority
in the bundestag (lower house).
The meeting was called origin-
ally to decide whether to oust the
Free Democrats from his cabinet
