Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 LETHBRIDQE HERALD Decemoer Common market nations gird for summit By CY FOX BRUSSELS After an apparent easing of United States-West European friction. Common Market countries now are girding for the much awaited summit in Copen- hagen. The NATO meetings which helped reduce transatlantic friction had their moments of open notably between State Secretary Henry Kissinger and French Foreign Minister Michel Jobert over the impact on the alliance of Soviet-American relations.

Finn Olav the European Community's com- missioner for internal says the nine-country group must the challenge of the crisis on a common Some commentators this as an oblique refer- ence to the alleged hesitation of Britain and France to answer the plea of the Netherlands for a sharing of scarce oil. Holland has suffered a total oil embargo by the Arabs. Gunderlach pointedly remarked that there is no possibility of some Community countries being totally deprived of oil while others are assured of supplies. In the suspicion has been voiced that Britain and France have been particularly conspicuous in wooing the Arabs and hesitating over help for Holland because they want to win back much of the influence they lost in the Mid- dle East. an economy and community life rocked by labor chaos in coal and electricity services as well as by the Arab oil certainly not want to compound its troubles by expressions of solidarity with Holland that would provoke the Arabs. there is a measure of gloom about the prospects for success of the Copenhagen conference. QUESTIONED There is even some renewed doubt about the effectiveness of summits in general as an instrument of concerted Euro- pean action. This is more crucial since there is also internal criticism of two other major instruments of the Common decision-making council of ministers and its policy-planning central alleged inability to give the Community powerful impetus in any single direc- tion. For the Brussels newspaper Le Soir describes the commission as excessively subservient to the pressures of individual member governments while the ministerial coun- cil is accused of lacking a global view of Community needs.

In its 1970 interim the commission rec- ommended tighter controls on a step the gov- ernment finally took by order- in-council in 1973. The commission warned in its 1972 treatment report that a black market was flourishing for the synthetic narcotic methadone. Within months methadone for heroin treatment was restricted to a limited number of doctors.
