Much Anti - American
Sentiment In Europe
LONDON —dp— There is a ris-,
ing sentiment of anti-Americanism :
in Europe these days, a feeling
that comes pretty close to down
right dislike of the Yanks.
Its symptoms are a scuffle In
a Piccadilly bar. a speech by the
French president, the dour Ger- |

are magnified—and some inspired- |

Manchester was declared off!

brought home to thinking Britons |
and Americans alike the serious-1
ness of a situation that has de
veloped with the stationing of some
70,000 U. S. airmen in this little '
TROUBLE NOT CONFINED
That ban, now lifted, came after |
a clash between Gls and a gang:
of ruffians. But the trouble is far'
from confined to Manchester and
the conduct of some young Ameri
can soldiers has unquestionably
rubbed the British the wrong way.
Heavily rouged, teen-age English
girls, on the arms of Gls with far
more money than British boys can
spend, swarm through downtown
London at night. One overzealous
American sentry at London Airport
recently held at gunpoint for an
hour an airport employe who un
thinkingly approached a U. S. mili
tary transport plane.
Another big American base is
near the university town of Oxford
and there Anglo-American relations
are not to happy. Gls recently
stopped cars on the highway near
the base after some office equip
ment was discovered missing.

fighter pilots homed in on the

CAMPAIGN DIDN'T HELP
It was not helped by the level to
which the American presidential
campaign sank. Many Americans
here experienced during that time
an embarrassed reluctance by their
hosts or guests to discuss a cam
paign in which the personal honor
and finances of candidates for high
office was brought into the public
The causes of this surge of anti-
Americanism are many the re
sentment of “poor relations” to
ward a rich uncle; the friction that
always comes with the stationing
of troops in a foreign land; a clash
of .cultures, natures and manners;
a resentment at being caught in
the giant nutcracker of the U. S.
The solutions are not so apparent
but the facts cannot be blinked
away and many Europeans are
worried that, with Communists
gleefully egging it on. the situation
may grow worse.
