(AP Wirephoto) China lashes out at U.S.., Russia Denmark's vote delights EEC By CY FOX Canadian Press Slalf Writer Deiimark's vole in favor of joining the European Economic Community, or Common Market, has de- lighted officials and supporters of the EEC. Bui, oddly enough, a major consequence of the referendum has been to encourage further debate among West Europeans generally about the advan- tages and drawbacks of the Community. Tile surprise resignation of triumphant Danish Prime Minister Jens Otto Krag lends extra interest, at home and abroad, to the referendum and to the issues debated in the weeks before it took place. The defeat of (he EEC cause in Norway last month involved many factors unique to that northern co mi try. In Denmark, however, some of the issues broached during the referendum campaign by opponents of mem- bership would he easily comprehensible to residents of nations currently belonging to the EEC. Cite EEC aims In their referendum speeches, the Danish anU- Marketeers stressed what they termed the exces- sive emphasis placed by Community adminisria- tors on large scale industrialization, material growth and sheer uniformity. Even Dr. Sicco Mansholt, president of the EEC's governing commission, conceded after the referendum tliat the grassroots advantages he considers to be accru- ing from the Community's operations arc not being effectively published among the mass of member- state citizens. Bearing this out is the fact that in Belgium, where (he EEC headquarters are situated, thousands of small busi nessnicn stopped ivork for two days in protest against high taxes and the mountains of paper work that typify life in a contemporary West European state. A major clement compounding such grievances is the way EEC countries are witnessing the mushroom growth of big, enterprises, ra.ngiiig huge car-making companics to vast supermarket, groups. The small businessman, who feels himself being squeezed out, concludes that the EEC not only has ac- celerated this process but may be geared exclusively to its promotion as well as to the encouragement of ruthless industrialization. Contrast apparent All Ibis produces widespread disenchantment with fJie itlca, especially when ils current realities are contrasted with the grandiose visions of a united Europe propounded after the catastrophe of the Second World War. Thus tlie danger is that the EEC will formally enter on its new era of enlarged life in a paradoxically- sour atmosphere.

"Local bargaining has dis- tinct advantages over regional said Dr. Jam- polsky. "We never have conflicts at (lie local level like those which have baen generated by regton- als.
