Amid all the beer and sauerkraut, all the wurst and schnitzel and strudel of every kind, 6-year-old E.J. Johnson was the clear hit of the 112th German Festival on Sunday. That's what happens when you don a brand-new Tyrolean hat and lederhosen and dance nonstop to a steady succession of polkas and oom-pah tunes. In fact, when you're that busy, there's not much time to talk, or to contemplate. Asked what he liked best about the festival, E.J. flashed a gap-toothed grin, said simply, "dancing," and continued clapping and swaying to the rhythm.

Baltimore's autumn breezes usher in the rich aromas of hearty fare at Oktoberfest and sauerbraten suppers. But this year, something else, something more heady is in the air. Call it hope. On the eve of the reunification of East and West Germany, it's hard to see the gatherings of the German-American community as routine food events. As sure as there'll be potato dumplings, there'll be talk of family and freedom.Between snippets about family recipes and parish news, members of womens' groups who prepare old-fashioned sauerbraten for the church suppers speak solemnly of their heritage and the dramatic events of the last year.

The stakes are enormous. Saddled with pension benefits, health care costs, job security provisions and other social entitlements, the country regarded as the economic engine of Europe is in deep trouble.Germany is losing its competitive edge, its reputation for hard work and, now, the government-management-union cooperation that made it a model for industrial harmony.
