The bold and noble dreams that galvanized the peoples of western Europe after the Second World War appears to be disintegrating, with the region's nations in increasing disarray individually and collectively The weakness is most dramatically visible in COMPUTERS BETTER FOR MENTAL TESTS LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Because computers have no emotions, a psychologist-psy- chiatrist here thinks they might be better than people in evaluating the results of mental examinations. They can be especially valu- able, Dr. Joseph C. Finney said, in a criminal case where there is public outcry for vengeance, such as the assassination of a prominent figure. Finney fed his computer the results of mental tests given Sirhan Sirhan, convicted assassin of Robert F. Kennedy. It told him Sirhan was mentally ill. In trials such as Sirhan's, Finney wrote in the American Journal of Psychiatry: "It is difficult for the expert witness to be sure of his objectivity." The computer has no such problem, Finney said. In addi- tion, it can make a far more complex evaluation than hu- mans usually do because it can review more material. The average mental exam reviews about 13 scales of psychological evaluation, but the system he has developed scores more than 150. "These are things like a sub- ject's propensity toward alco- holism on one scale, or toward drug addiction on another and so on.'1 he said in an interview. Finney. a professor at University of Kentucky, put into the computer the results of two extensive mental inventories given to Sirhan, one six weeks after Kennedy's death and the other five months after the crime.

Imagine a United States Congress whose members can advise but neither consent to nor pass laws, who belong both to their state legislatures and the national body, who speak six different languages and spnng from nine distinct countries This is both the miracle and the dilemma of the Common Market's European parliament, whose members are grouped not by states but by their politics from Communist to Conservative. Their latest session ended in Strasbourg in open soul- searching about the future of the Common Market and the fate of the 250 million citizens in its nine countries. The 198 delegates to the European parliament sit in their national legislatures, which select them to go-to Strasbourg. Members of the body in six of the nine nations Britain, West Germany, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg are working for direct elections to the Strasbourg assembly. The "French, the Danes and the Irish are hanging back. A popular mandate could allow this feeble but democratic debating society to speak with the voters' voices and transform it into a Europe-wide political force. For now it is an "unhatched as one observer put it. adding, "the egg is there, but the chick hasn't been allowed to peck through." Nowhere is the picture ot a Europe divided and diverse yet longing to speak with one voice projected more dramatically than in the European parliament. It is the Common Market's only public forum, in contrast with other market groupings, in which the horse-trading is done in private and communiques are issued at the end. The parliament meets on an average of once a month in Europe House, a low, dingy concrete structure built near the Rhine in 1919 and meant to last only 10 years. It became the legislature's home in U58 when the Common Market was established. The permanent background noise of the European parliament is the gabbling undertone of the instantaneous interpreters, perched in glass-fronted control booths along the front wall. This filters through the earphones at every seat. There are 80 interpreters, and the favorite seems to be the wildly gesturing woman who interprets German speakers for Italians. N-reactor answer to energy shortage? EDITOR'S NOTE: The Canadian Press asked Dr. W. Bennett Lewis, retired senior vice-president for science of the Crown corporation, Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., to write the article on energy. In it Dr. Bennett, sometimes called the father of the modern atomic reactor in Canada, looks at the energy shortage and suggests a way in which the nuclear reactor may eventually help produce liquid fuels. Written for CP By Dr. W. Bennett Lewis In meeting any crisis it is helpful to know the eventual outcome Although it seems too late now to avoid paying higher prices for energy over the next 20 years or so, it re- mains true that in 50 to 100 years the then much larger adult and working population of the world can enjoy abun- dant energy in a clean envi- ronment at lower man-hour costs than have ever been en- joyed by more than a few. Although a number of people appear to have been taken by surprise by the present sharp increase in the price of the conventional fuels, coal, oil, and natural gas, the situation has been quite adequately foreseen and known to many since 1953. Moreover, the current ex- citement about harnessing wind-power, solar energy, geothermal energy and other sources is going over well- trodden old ground, quite thoroughly explored in 1949-53 and at other times too. Moreover, it is character- istic of human nature to enjoy being scared, so it should not be surprising that the quite simple solution foreseen in 1953 is either ignored or turned into another scare, wishful thinking enli- vens fantasies such as abun- dant clean nuclear energy from the effectively in- exhaustible heavy hydrogen (deuterium) in the oceans.1 FORESAW SOLUTION In fact, many like to recall the poetic prophecy by the late Dr. Homi Bhabha of In- dia speaking as president when opening the first United Nations conference on the peaceful uses of atomic energy at Geneva in 1955. He said: "I venture to pre- dict that a method will be found for liberating fusion energy in a controlled manner within the next two decades. When that happens the energy problems of the world will truly have been solved for- ever for the fuel will be as plentiful as the heavy hydro- gen in the oceans." VALUE KNOWN Meanwhile, the real and known hope for the future re- mains a neglected Cinderella. No technical breakthrough is needed; on the contrary, na- ture seems to have endowed her with graces that await only the attention of a modest prince. She has a technical name Candu-OC-Thorium. Her graces were expounded by Canada at the fourth of the United Nations Geneva con- ferences in September, 1971. Besides her expensive ugly sisters already mentioned and another sister, the attractive but deceitful and costly fast breeder, she has unlike the fairy story a first cousin who has just made her successful debut at Pickering, Ont., called Candu-PHW-Nat-U. This cousin has found a prince but that marriage has left Cinderella starving, giv- ing her fairy godmother a real problem to find a second handsome prince to bring her out. There still is confusion be- tween Cinderella and her Candu-PHW cousin. It is Cin- derella and not her cousin that promises that lowest cost energy for the future.
