Youths taking part In expedition for Gold Award check their bearings on south west England. defence pose European problem By JOHN ALLAN MAY Christian Science Monitor England Oil and defence now pose two mighty challenges to the unity of Western Europe The challenge of oil is basic to the very concept of the European Economic Com- munity For without a free flow of and trade it cannot continue to ex- ist But major Arab oil producers have placed an em- bargo on shipments of oil to main' port not only of The Netherlands but of continental Western Europe One immediate response has been for The Netherlands government to cut supplies to homes and industry and to ban Sunday driving by private automobiles altogether at the very same time in Prime Minister Edward Heath assuring the House of Com- mons that Arab countries have given they will not damage Britain and that there is no need yet for rationing of any kind in this country Opposition Leader Harold Wilson urged Mr Heath to tell President Pompidou of France when they meet in mid-November that on the matter of oil and in the future what we we hold' This was a reference not only to the 109 days' supply of oil that Britain holds in its reserve tanks but to the North Sea oil field now beginning to be exploited in British areas under the North Sea Mr Heath did not respond to this But neither did he say anything to reassure Europe that oil supplies will be shared on a European basis Indeed the evidence from Queen's which set out the government's intended policy measures for the next 12 indicated a more nationalistic British policy in regard to North Sea oil Possibly the British govern- ment has decided that in pre- sent circumstances silence is golden and that Western Europe will have to put up with unequal and disrupted until is a general Middle East settlement After the situation will change There should be a gradual build-up of North Sea tending toward theoretical self-sufficiency for Britain by and a much easier situation for Western Europe in general Maybe Mr Heath's advisers think that will be the time to think again about a common European energy policy But most oil experts whose daily experience rein- forces their view of oil as es- sentially an international do not think this reading of the situation is realistic An oil shortage is likely to be felt in Britain sooner than the government they suspect And all members of the they are going to expect energy supplies to be fairly shared by all members of the community In facing this France and Britain are since both have been assured of oil supplies by the oil producing and exporting countries a more serious and long-term problem arises when the question of Euro- pean self-defense is raised The Mideast and the U S nuclear have made it obvious that Europe must have a greater defence capability of its own And here France and Bri- tain remain very distant France having withdrawn its troops and bases from NATO and developed a totally indepen- dent nuclear strike while Britain remains within NATO and still is a junior partner of the United States in nuclear technology and ar- mament Argentine unions fighting battle against terrorists BUENOS AIRES Argen- tina's trade among the most powerful anywhere in the are fighting a savage battle against left- wing terrorists who are systematically killing off their leaders They are also caught in an uncomfortable dilemma of .their own as Peromsts they want to make General Juan Domingo Peron's third presidency a roaring but as representatives of the in- dustrial workers they must as visibly as the best deal they can for their members The terrorist onslaught produced widespread anger in when the Confederacion General de Trabajo chief Jose Rucci was murdered in broad daylight just two days after Peron won office with a resounding 62 per cent of the vote Rucci's killers are still unknown Although the government has insisted they are members of the outlawed Marxist People's Revolutonary many in the labour movement believe they in members of a left-wing Peronist fac- tion Rucci was one in a long line of prominent trade union leaders to meet death by assassination. Since his death the killing has and scarcely a day goes by without some local or national union chief being the target of gunmen The new COT Adeline walks in fear for his life The frightened trade union leaders have reacted by declaring all-out war on their both inside and out- side the union movement. In the days following Rucci's death a number of known left- some of them were murdered. The main battle lines are drawn between the generally conservative un- ion leaders and young zealots who accuse them of betraying the workers. The union like do not seek any radical changes in Argentine but are well satisfied with the present which gives them enormous influence over official policy making Their who include the Peronist want a radical redistnbution of wealth and a rapid march towards some form of socialism. Although the CGT leaders appear to enjoy the full sup- port of who forged the present Argentine trade movement during his rise to and know they form the backbone of there is a growing gap between the men at the top and the rank and most of whom are also fervent Peronists. This had led to an ad hoc alliance between the grass- roots leaders and the growing Marxist unions commanded by Agustin Tosco. Their im- mediate objective is the scrapping of the signed by the CGT and the employers' which has kept both prices and wages frozen after allowing a modest increase which favored the lowest and is the corner-stone of the government's domestic economic policy. So far it has been successful in halting the scourge of all Argentine governments for the last two but many workers are beginning to champ at the their expectations having soared with the long dreamed of advent of a Peronist government under Peron The unofficial shop floor leadership has been acquiring strength as restlessness increases and the worried CGT chiefs are behind the for a rise in wages They dare be seen to oppose Peron and Peron has thrown his weight behind the economy minister all factory discontent is diverted from the iden- tified with and directed against the union leaders As well as pressing for more money the shop floor leaders are demanding a democratisa- tion of the claim- ing that power is shared out among a well-ensconced but unrepresentative bureaucracy which has in pulling the wool over the eyes of an otherwise infallible Peron The militants are also at- tacking the union hierarchy for their unproletarian life styles The union chiefs have access to vast sums of money coming from obligatory and many have expensive im- ported suits and large cars as well as bands of trigger-happy bodyguards. Their free- wheeling way of life is contrasted with the dif- ficulties most workers have in making ends meet Not all union money is spent on living it up of and the charges are deliberately exaggerated. The Argentine trade unions own a number of hotels and holiday complexes for their members which can be compared only with the party rest homes that dot the Soviet Union. Their health in- surance schemes are in many first rate The most powerful union in the CGT is the Metal Union which has a long and bloodstained record of internecine fighting.
