SiR,-It must be transparently clear to everyone not entirely bereft of his senses that European Problem No. I is: How to win the friendship and cooperation of the German people without forfeiting Allied prestige!

Western Germany yes, Western Germanyis a powder magazine. and will remain such just as long as the presence of Allied troops is liable to interpretation as an " occupation."

Now there is abundant evidence to show that the people of Germany are clearly aware that the presence of these forces is necessary in order to safeguard against an attack from the East. and it is equally certain that the German people resent " occupation."

A formula must be found. Dr. Adenauer he is universally respected must be given the opportunity of freely inviting the Allies to remain. Remove the sting of " occupation " and watch the peoples of Europe exhibit a display of Christian solidarity undreamed of since that disintegration of Europe which followed logically upon the heels of the so called " Reformation "!
