European unity

Regarding the editorial " `The Little Yes' ," Sept. 23: Surely you are not suggesting that "EC heads of state must agree to ensure more local and national representation in a future unified Europe." If, indeed, European monarchs and presidents were to get involved in this political issue, such involvement would be overwhelmingly resented by the voters in Europe. They consider this clearly a political issue with which their government leaders must deal, not the heads of state.

Imagine what the reaction of the European public would be if Queen Elizabeth or President von Weizsaecker were to express an opinion, much less negotiate on such a thorny political issue. Walter H. Diebold, Lafayette, Calif.
