Luxembourg Citj just 10 years ago it began op crating on Feb 10 1953 The first physical act was shipmen of 40 tons of coke by rail from Wincheringen Germany t Apach France The community was known as the Schuman Plan af ter a French foreign minister but its real architect was th man who was to become it first president Jean Monnet The former brandy salesman from Cognac was also the archi tect of Euratom and the Euro pean Common Market Justly known as Mr Europe Monnet dreams now of a true Atlantic community Speaking at Dartmouth College on June 11 1961 he declared Just as the United States found i necessary to unite just as Eu rope is now in the process o uniting so the West must movi towards some kind of union It is the beginning to thi more orderly world we mus have in order to escape

able to produce upwards of 167 million tons of steel by 1965 the six nations of the present Com munity 1095 million tons In the same year planned US capacity will total 160 million tons a year As for the European Common Market made possible by the Community President Kennedy told Congress in submitting the draft of the proposed Trade Ex pansion Act of 1962 The growth of the European Com mon Market an economy which may soon nearly equal our own has progressed with such success and momentum that it has surpassed its original timetable and laid the groundwork for a radical alter ation of the economics 6f the At lantic alliance This progress has proved Jean Monnet a prophet as well as a planner As operations began he declared This new Com munity is a revolution in Eu rope perhaps the
