Aug. 26, 1961 - British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan (right) said today that the situation in Berlin was "very worrying, but nothing more." "Nobody is going to fight about it," he declared. "I think there would be much more danger of war if weapons were not so destructive. Fifty years ago, we could have had a war. Now it is not much fun for anybody. But we have to be very careful that nobody does anything foolish."
