Brandt big loss on political scene BONN The resignation of West German Chancellor Willy Brandt Monday night removes a titan from the world political scene and deprives Europe of a man who seemed to tower above other European politicians. A keen supporter of the Eu- ropean Common he worked ceaselessly to get Britain and other applicant nations into the Market. His controversial policy of reconciling West Germany with Communist East Europe won him the 1971 Nobel Peace Prize. it was the presence of a man as his close aide who has admitted spying for East Germany which brought an end to his leadership. The 60-year-old Brandt be- came chancellor in 1969. at the head of a coalition of his Social Democratic party and the small liberal Free Democratic party. He was returned to power with an increased majority in the last general election in No- 1972 The fruits of Brandt's Ostpolitik included treaties with Moscow and Warsaw and the signing of a four-power agreement over West Berlin which at last safeguarded the rights of the divided city. CATCHES PUBLIC EYE It was in where he was governing mayor for nine that the dashing figure of Brandt caught the public eye. He seemed to epitomize the strength of the Berliners in re- fusing to be intimidated by the Communists. In 1972. Brandt's efforts led to the signing of a treaty between the two halves of Germany that had been- divided for 27 years. The treaty in turn was to assure the 'entry of--both West Germany and East Germany into the United born Herbert Karl Frahm in Lubeck on Dec. joined the Socialist youth movement in the early and was working as a journalist for a Lubeck newspaper when Hitler came to power in 1933. He adopted the name Willy Brandt as a cover to deceive the Gestapo while he worked for the Socialist Workers' party and eventually fled into exile in Norway. As a reporter for Scaridina-. vian he went to Spain for five months in 1937 to report the Spanish civil war from the Republican side. A year before the outbreak of the Second World the Nazis deprived him of his Ger- man citizenship. He obtained Norwegian citizenship. When Nazi armies overran Norway in friends gave him a Norwegian army uniform and he disappeared into a prisoner-of-war camp. Released after a few he fled to Sweden. When Hitler's Third Reich finally collapsed in he re- turned to Germany as Norwe- gian correspondent covering the Nuernberg war crimes trial. What he saw at Nuernberg led him to write the Criminals and Other which stressed the difference between the war criminals and a nation capable of redemption. The offer of a job as press attache at the Norwegian military mission in Berlin brought him to the devastated city in the uniform of a Norwegian ma- which diehard German nationalists still hold against him. Brandt recovered his German nationality and became active in the Social Democratic party. Tensions in the East-West Mashpoint of Berlin brought Brandt into the limelight. At the time of the Soviet in- vasion of Hungary in he was president of the Berlin Chamber of Deputies. He talked a crowd of Berliners of- their intention of surging into East Berlin to protest against Communist oppression. Chancellor nominee said tough right-winger BONN Finance Minister Helmut the man nominated to succeed Chancellor Willy is a tough right winger in the Social Democratic party who has been openly ambitious for the job for months. The 55-year-old economist accused Brandt in March of vacillating on key decisions at a time when the wearied by growing domestic is reported to have toyed with the idea of resigning. Brandt denied at the time he was serious about stepping down and rejected suggestions that deputy chairman of his be appointed a ''deputy to take domestic policy problems off his Schmidt now is expected to use his strongman image to rally the party leadership around him in the political un- certainty caused by Brandt's resignation. Considered a master politi- pragmatist Schmidt once wha always thinks of the adjective 'dirty' whenever a compromise is made is completely unable to think he has nothing the aura of statesmanship which surrounded the Nobel Prize-winning Brandt. He is regarded with hostility by left wingers within the Social Democratic which Brandt conditnues to lead as GARDEN SHOP May 9th at a.m. All prices In effect Friday and May 11.
