6A Ogden Standard-Examiner, Thursday, October 7, 1971 _ Britons Disapprove Link to Common Market By PH1LNEWSOM UP! Foreign News Analyst On Oct. 28 the British parliament is expected to approve by a comfortable majority Britain's entry into the European Common Market. It is a move disapproved by 60 per-cent of all Britons. Among those opposing it is former Prime Minister Harold Wilson, whose Labor government applied for Common Market membership in 1967. : The Labor party, just winding up its annual conference.at the] seaside resort town of Brighton, went on record against it nearly four to one. Nationwide polls show a majority of British housewives oppose it. As Britain turns its back on an imperial past and reluctantly accepts a European future, its doubts and misgivings are reflected in the fact "that the same 60 per cent opposed to Common Market entry also fully expect it come about. 4leltere Jt orJVM/ , - A' FALLEN TRUNK DEAD FOR 462.

The issue has split Britain as few others could and the division is not confined to party lines. „ Britain stands at more than the crossroads of history and i departure from tradition. Al-| I though Britons are members 'Of | an affluent society and Britain's balance of payments reflecting income and outgo are i at record highs, her economy is close to a state of crisis. The Heath government is counting upon Britain's entry into Europe to help, cure unemployment which is approaching the million mark. The; labor unions predict the opposite regarding unemployment. FOOD HIGHER A main source of British opposition to the Common Market is the prospect of higher food prices. Yet food prices already are higher and there seems little likelihood the process can be reversed. Partly due to inflation, partly i due to "world market conditions, British food costs jumped .10.4 per cent in .the eleven months between June, 1970, and May, 1971. , Further increases are expected as the government prepares for entry into the market where prices are even higher. The crux of the government argument in favor of joining the market is that only in this way can Britain hope for the increased productivity and efficiency necessary to compete against such world economic gfants as the United States and* Japan. .._.

UNDER RADAR The FOBS can hit a target 5000 miles distant in only 10 minutes. Coming m under ordinary radar, it can cut warning time to about three minutes The ICBM, by contrast, travels in an arc as nigh as 800 miles, takes 15 minutes to reach target and can be detected earlier in flight. FOBS' sole benefit, according to former Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara, is the reduction in warning time it allows. Accuracy and power are the the world. It lost warning time that was FOBS' benefit. The Pentagon, under control of Republicans who rarely had a kind word about McNamara, has affirmed support for McNamara's logic on the FOBb and indicated it has no intention of developing an American version. .
