Paris-Bonn harmony out of tune By CY FOX Canadian Press Staff Writer At the very time when Britain Is beginning Its supercharged debate on the issue of entry into the European Common Market, renewed signs of discord among present Market members have cropped up on the Continent. The indications of disunity came after the bilateral talks in West Germany between Chancellor Willy Brandt and French President Georges Pompidou. Disagreement between the two leaders on interna- tional monetary problems contrasted sharply with the hopes of increased Western European unity voiced in the British government's white paper on Common Market entry. Cm most oilier issues, however, the French and West German leaders seemed well in tune with the spirit of Bonn Paris harmony first given formal ex- pression in the 1963 friendship treaty signed by the two countries. Ardor cooled Not long after ratification of that treaty, then-presi- dent de Gaulle suspicious of West Germany's con- tinuing close ties with the United States alienated Bonn by undertaking a French1 reconciliation with the Soviet Union. Consequently, Franco West German relations were never as cordial as during the initial flush of amity between de Gaulle and the late Chancellor Ade- nauer. The warmth of Brandt's reception for Pompidou in the su n n y surroundings of the Rhineland augured well for (lie just-ended talks. But the two leaders apparently made no progress towards resolving the basic conflict between West Germany's insistence that international monetary ex- changes should be more flexible and the French advo- cacy of fixed exchange rates. After the monetary crisis earlier this year, which ended with the floatig'of the thriving mark, the money issue is of vital importance. The French spokesman who gave the Paris version of the Pompidou Brandt talks said ominously that it is not realistic to believe the European Economic Community can arrive at a common approach to pro- jected currency reform before the conference of the International Monetary Fund takes place in September. Money at root This appraisal of the progress or lack of it- made by Pompidou and Brandt on the money issue might indicate that reported French apprehension about the growing economic power of West Germany will go on playing a critical part in Common Market politics. On the other hand, one London newspaper said (lie Rhine conference left the West Germans suspicious that Pompidou may not be as willing to cooperate with Bonn in Market, affairs as he was before the pros- pects brightened for Britisli entry. Most atlcmplcd explanations of the recent French switch from vetoing British Market membership to voicing enthusiasm for it-linked the aboutface to a supposed conviction in France that Britain's entry would counterbalance the mounting Market influenco of West Germany.

Bloody prelude to 12th of July LONDONDERRY (A P) British troops battled rioting mobs of Roman Catholics into the early hours today in a bloody prelude to the 12th of July celebrations by militant Northern Ireland Protestants Monday. In fighting that turned the Catholic Bogside district into a battleground, the troops fired twice into the rioters' ranks, killing two men and wounding a third. The army said the mob fired first at the soldiers. Hundreds of youths, cheered on by crowds of spectators, also pelted the soldiers with gasoline and nail bombs, bricks and bottles. The British Army announced it was bringing 500 more sol- diers into the country, increas- ing its strength locally to Friends dragged a wounded rioter into a car and took him to a hospital 20 miles away in the' Irish Republic. He died there, and a coroner's court said later he would have lived had he been treated in Londonderry. DEATH TOLL HISES The deaths brought to 28 this vear's toll from violence in Northern Ireland. Fifty-seven persons are known to have died since August, 1969, when street fighting erupted out of Catholic demonstrations demanding an end to discrimination in jobs, housing and voting regulations. The 12th of July celebrations mark the victory by Protestant King William over Catholic King James at the Battle of the Boyne in 1690. More than Protestants are expected to take part in parades that Ulster's minority Catholics see as loud assertions of Protestant ascend- Premier Jack Lynch of the Irish Republic appealed Thurs- day night to leaders on all sides to do everything possible to re- duce tension.

(CP The Sudbury Basin may become a regular stopping point on the way to the moon for U.S. astro- nauts. So says Dr. Fred Horz of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.and the man in charge of geology training for the U.S. Apollo moon series. He made that comment Thursday after 13 hours of tramping around the High Falls area, approximately 20 miles northwest of Sudbury, with Apollo XVI astronauts John Young and Charles Duke Jr. and Fred Haise, Jr., a backup crew man. Since arriving Tuesday, they have spent considerable time picking over rocks similar to those they hope to find on the mountainous highland region of the moon during their mission next March. They, along with 16 NASA ge- ologists, technicians and equip- ment personnel, are in the Sud- bury area until this afternoon.

A severe earthquake rolled across central Chile Thursday night and the government places the toll at 63 dead and 461 injured. Chile's main port of Valpa- raiso on the Pacific coast ap- peared to be among the cities hardest hit. Rescue officials there reported 25 dead and about 300 injured. Information on damage and the number of victims still was sketchy with many communi- ties isolated by landslides. A mild tremor was felt today in Santiago and Valparaiso, spreading fresh alarm. The Thursday night quake also was felt through much of Argentina across the Andes, but no casualties or major damage wer'e reported there. Communications were still shaky or disrupted with the areas north of Santiago that were hit hardest, and there was no word on property damage. It was feared that the casualty toll would rise as more reports came in. Seismographs in Santiago and abroad measured the quake at a force of around seven on the open-end Richter scale, but gov- ernment officials said it regis- tered 10 in the areas hardest hit. This is an unusually high Alaska quake 1964 registered there was speculation that the report mieht be an exaggeration. Chile's four central provinces, where four million people live, were declared an emergency zone, and police and armed forces moved in to provide food and medical relief. PLEADS FOR CALM President Salvador Allende went on the air and pleaded for calm. He planned a helicopter tour the disaster area today. Seismographs abroad located the tremor's epicentre near Val- paraiso, Chile's second largest city, on the coast 60 miles northwest of the capital. But the interior minister said the quake was strongest in the towns of H- lapel Barbala and Salamanca, 125 miles north of Santiago. Chile lies along the perimeter of the so-called "ring of fire" along the Andes and is hit periodically by earthquakes. Minor tremors are fairly com- mon.

BARRHEAD (CP) More flooding is expected this week- end on the Paddle River be- tween Sangudo and Barrhead, 55 miles northwest of Edmon- ton, a spokesman for the Al- berta department of environ- ment said heue. Information officer Dick DeRyk said, however, that the flooding would not be as serious as in June, 1965 when there was loss of life and considerable damage.

In a 10-ininute address on na- tional television, Heath said Common Market entry is essen- tial "if we wish to remain. Great Britain and to become a greater Britain." But results of a byelection m the London riding of Greenwich, announced several hours after the speech, showed voters had overwhelmingly chosen as anti- Market Labor candidate, Guy Barnett. Barnett captured 66.7 per cent of the vote, an increase from 55.7 per cent for Labor in the general election last year. His nearest opponent was Conserva- tive Stuart Thorn, a pro-Market candidate, with 28 per cent of the vote, a drop from 35.3 per cent last year.

In other developments Thurs- day, Labor Leader Harold Wil- son took his first soft swipe at the government's white paper on Common Market entry terms, introduced in the Com- mons Wednesday. Wilson, who has not officially declared himself for or against entry, said the white paper lacked many essential details. It should have outlined the specific effects of membership on Brit- ain's balance of payments ltd the cost of living, he said.

Refugee problem said staggering _ rtn dm nnpstinn of nnv DO NEW DELHI (Renter) Three Canadian members of Parliament, visiting camps in llic West Bengal state described the East: Pakistani refugee problem today as "staggering." Georges Lachancc, Liberal member for Montreal Lafon- taine, Andrew Brcwin, New Democratic Party member for Toronto Greenwood and Heath Macquarrie, Conservative mem- ber for Hillsborough, P.E.I., said the problem is of a scale very difficult to exaggerate. They were speaking to report- ers'in New Delhi prior to tlieir departure for Islamabad, from where they will travel to Dacca to continue their investigation of tlie East Pakistan crisis. Brcmn said of his visit lo the refugee areas: "We were deeply moved, as any humane person would be, by the immensity of the human tragedy we saw. "We have spoken to many ref- ugees, some just after they crossed the border, and there was ample spontaneous evi- dence that people arc Ix-ing driven from their farms, jobs, stores and families by fear." MacGuorrie, callinc tbo prob- lem "absolutlcy said: "I now more than ever be- lieve that other countries should not. allow India to maintain the burden by itself." Lachancc, vice-chairman of the Commons committee on ex- ternal affairs and national de- fence, said one refugee crosses into West Bengal every second, "something which in our coun- try we just cannot visualize." Brcwin, speaking for all three MPs, said that on tlieir return lo Canada they arc determined to persuade the government and people to help at both Hie hu- manitarian and nolitical Jevcls. On tire question of any possi- ble political settlement in East Pakistan, he said: "We believe democracy should be restored and the rightfully elected people be allowed to govern." Canada had cancelled all ex- isting arms orders to Pakistan, and ''in view of the present dis- is a pretty inade- quate word to describe what is going on in East Pakistan- other governments of the world sliould slop supplying arms which would contribute to n con- tinuance of the present: situa- tion."
