From Our Correspondent in the Netherlands THE news of Dr. Adenaucr's absolute majority has been received with great satisfaction by Germany's Western neighbour, the Netherlands, and especially in Catholic political circles.

The Catholic People's Party has always been in the vanguard of the movement for a United Europe and fully supported the European Defence Treaty, which has already been endorsed by the Netherlands Parliament, The Socialist Party in Germany has always been considered by Netherlands Catholics, as well as by the Socialists, as a serious threat to European integration. The defeat of the Communists and of the extreme nationalist groupings is, of course, another reassuring feature of these election results.

The sound of tramping jackboots of the Neo-Nazis had no doubt created apprehension in this country. but the outcome of the elections has expelled the fear that these extremists have gained any real grip on the population.
