Europe Shocked By Resignation 01 Brandt LONDON ( A P ) -- West EU- pcan political leaders ex- essed shock loday at the res- nation of West German Chandler Willy Brandt. They liled him as one of the era's ·eat statesmen and said his eparture was a heavy blow for 'est Germany and for Eu ipean unity. "His resignation, like his po- .ical conduct, marks his total legrity." said Dutch Premier oop den Uyl. "But without him urope is impoverished." Premier Trygve Bratteli of o r w a y . where Brandt spent le Nazi years in exile, said the ews was received with regret id sympathy in Brandt's "scc- id homeland." Danish Premier Poul Hart- ng praised Brandt as a good riend of Denmark and said he ad made a real contribution to nternational detente through is jxjlicy of reconciliation with ermany's Communist enemies n Eastern Europe. Former Danish Premier Aner Joergensen deeply deplored irandt's decision and ex- .ressed the hope he eventually ,'ouUI make a comeback.

Brandt's decision was an- lounced too late for editorial lomment in London's morning papers. Hut the political correspondent of The Guardian vrotc: "By forcing Mr. Brandt o resign, the Kast German in- elligence service has accom- )lished one of the most impor- ant achievements in the recent lislory of espionage.' 1 In Brussels, where foreign ministers of the Common Mar:ct countries met today, French Foreign Minister Michel Jobert paid tribute to Brandt as a man.
