P. Lutnsden and Mrs. Guy E. Michle. Background music'' was furnished by Nadin* Downing, Mary Jane While, Sue Powell, Jo Ann Meredith, Ann Dillman, Susan Cunningham. Dick Richardson and Bob Trail Limn. By JAMES MARUW t WASHIKOTON, Nov. 14. (AP) — The nations of Western Europe— because of the ruin left by war and 'their fear of Communism— have moved closer to unity than ever before: economically, politically, and militarily. Tills country has blessed tliclr' efforts and urged them on. But their unity is far from complete. They are a long way from any such thing as a United States of Europe. And this country has helped them with money and arms. The help runs into the billions, After last week's elections It remains to be seen whether this help continues at the same rate. Perhaps the easiest way to understand Europe's problems Is to take the United States as an example. If looked at in reverse. Sup pose, instead of the 48 states joinec together In one government, the 4f were independent of one another: Each with its own army, lang uagc, culture, traditions, industry and many barriers, like tariffs, t free trade with the other 47 states because each wanted to keep dowri| outside competition. Suppose, further, the people 01 the 48 slates had been killing one another for centuries in repeated warp, building up tears. Jealousies, and hatreds. The» sny there came one war, worse than all the rest, which left them all broke, nearly broke, or in ruins. ( And suppose one big state like Texas or New Yortc — substitute Russia — was threatening to grab control o! the rest or gobble them up. At least the other 47 would have something in common: their poverty and EL'ar. Out of sheer, desperate desire to survive the 47 then might at last be willing to bury some of their old distrusts, In face of the new and greater trouble. Not Hearty to Vie Id Back to Europe: While they might yield on some, things — like freer trade among! them or cooperating on a common defense against Russia—they aren't yet ready to yield everything. That is. they are still not willing to give up their ancient sovereignty—the right to run themselves, individually—and submerge themselves in one big government for Western Europe. — That time may come. It isn't In sight now. so. with each remaining independent, the nations of Western Europe haggle over what they yield iri their moves toward unity. That Is why their steps in thit direction have not been taken hrrriedly. As a result, two nations, or three, or five set up special agreements among themselves on co-operating {or better trade. And then a whole bunch of them get together for this same purpose. This is in the economic field. Alliance For All The same way in the military field. A couple make an alliance. Then three make an alliance. Then the two and the three get together and make an alliance.
