The article informs that, for the Germans the will to win has always been an important part of the battle. So bright and early on the morning after politician Konrad Adenauer's Germany-in-Europe platform plank had been overwhelmingly accepted at the polls, he ordered his Chancellery in Bonn to hoist the green and white flag of the Council of Europe. But will the French, who of late dynamic than usual, be willing to follow the election returns that made Adenauer on of the strongest chancellors. The first reaction in France to Adenauer's victory has been to make some of the members of the Assembly, who have been on the fence about the European Defense Community, show signs of climbing down.
