  • Description

    SEVERAL HUNDRED WEST BERLIN STUDENTS, MEETING IN THE UNIVERSITY LAST NIGHT (FRIDAY), CALLED FOR THE ADMISSION OF BRITAIN INTO THE COMMON MARKET. THEY UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED A RESOLUTION WHICH SAID, "BRITAIN NEEDS US, AND WE NEED BRITAIN. WITHOUT BRITAIN WE ARE NOT EUROPE."
    ONE OF THEIR PROFESSORS, DR. GABLENTZ, TOLD THE CROWDED HALL THAT "THE WEST GERMAN GOVERNMENT MUST TELL THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT THAT THE RECENTLY SIGNED TREATY WAS UNINTERESTING WHILE THERE IS NO UNDERSTANDING WITH BRITAIN". WAVING PLACARDS AND SHOUTING SLOGANS, THE FEET-STAMPING STUDENTS GREETED DR. GABLENTZS WORDS WITH LOUD APPLAUSE.

    IN BONN, THE LEADER OF THE WEST GERMAN DELEGATION TO THE COMMON MARKET HAS RESIGNED. DR. MUELLER-ARMACK IS SAID TO HAVE SUBMITTED HIS RESIGNATION BECAUSE HE COULD NO LONGER Share RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE GOVERNMENT'S EUROPEAN POLICY. A STRONG SUPPORTER OF BRITAIN'S MEMBERSHIP OF THE COMMON MARKET HE IS REPORTED TO HAVE RESENTED FRENCH TACTICS TO KEEP HER OUT.

    THE FIRST REACTION OF THE FIVE MEMBERS OF THE COMMON MARKET WHO BACKED BRITAIN'S ENTRY HAS BEEN TO REFUSE TO CO-OPERATE WITH FRANCE WITHIN THE MARKET'S INSTITUTIONS. MEETINGS HAVE BEEN DELAYED, INCLUDING SEVERAL OF VITAL IMPORTANCE TO FRENCH AGRICULTURAL INTERESTS. MEANWHILE, IN ROME, MR. MACMILLAN HAS BEEN SEEING THE ITALIAN PREMIER, SIGNOR FANFANI, THEIR TALKS ARE SAID TO HAVE CONCENTRATED ON MINIMISING THE DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE BREAKDOWN IN THE BRUSSELS NEGOTIATIONS.
