THURSDAY, OCTOHliU IB, 1972 PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS THltEE SECTION'S 3fi PACKS One Europe economic voice urged FAKIS (CH) President Georges Pompidou of France called on his European part- ners Iwlay to speak with one economic voice as he opened a Common Market summit con- ference in which protcclionism is likely lo be shunted aside in favor of freer world trade. Pompidou, addressing the en- larged trading bloc's first sum- mit meeting in the hcavily- guarded international confer- ence centre, hinted that France is ready lo support ihc idea of making the Common Market, now enlarged lo nine countries, a centre of trade expansion 'and not a bastion of protec- tionism." But the French leader em- phasized that financial stabil- ity, including the principle o[ fixed currency rates, must be a paramount hint to Prime Minister Edward Heath of Britain, sitting nearby, to ro- peg the pound, winch has been in a free float since last June. The pound dropped to its lowest level in 22 monllis today in the London market under a wave of selling orders from continen- tal centres. Pompidou suggested that the Common Market must advance toward "a distinctive monetary zone." Protection of Market currencies against speculators and unity in fight- ing inflation must be "our pri- mary concern." The French leader said he didn't want to sec a Europe constructed in complete opposi- tion lo the United States, but Americans will have to accept "'he reality" of the new Eu- rope. CRITICIZES GOLD VOICE He said the official gold price of ail ounce set hy Ihe United Slates is unrealistic and although he didn't intend to persist on this theme at the summit meeting, "this is n matter which will have .to ha discussed some dav."
