    PROFESSOR WALTER HALLSTEIN, THE ARCHITECT OF THE EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET, TODAY (FRIDAY) PAID A COURTESY CALL ON MR. HAROLD WILSON, THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER. IT WAS ONE OF TWO CALLS MADE DURING THE DAY BY PROFESSOR HALLSTEIN, WHO'S ON A PRIVATE VISIT TO ENGLAND.

    THE MAIN AIM OF HIS VISIT WAS TO ADDRESS A MEETING TODAY OF THE INSTITUTE OF INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS. THE NATURE OF THE TOPIC, HOWEVER, WAS NOT DISCLOSED.

    PROFESSOR HALLSTEIN ALSO CALLED ON BRITAIN'S FOREIGN SECRETARY, MR PATRICK GORDON WALKER, WITH WHOM HE ATTENDED LAST MONTH'S BONN MEETING OF THE MINISTERIAL COUNCIL OF THE WESTERN EUROPEAN UNION, WHICH LINKS BRITAIN WITH THE SIX COMMON MARKET COUNTRIES.

    AS PRESIDENT OF THE COMMON MARKET'S EXECUTIVE COMMISSION, HE IS REGARDED AS ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL MEN IN WESTERN EUROPE. AS WELL AS BEING THE ARCHITECT OF THE "SIX", HE HAS ALSO DEVOTED MUCH OF HIS TIME AND ENERGY TO FURTHERING HIS PLANS FOR THE POLITICAL UNION OF WESTERN EUROPE. A CONCEPT WHICH HE REGARDS AS THE ULTIMATE PHASE OF ECONOMIC UNION, WHICH WOULD INCLUDE BRITAIN ON BOTH COUNTS.
